Wow, they just upped Tashigi's insecurities about being belittled for being a woman in the animé didn't they? Whenever she hears a compliment, she just goes, you're belittling me because I'm a woman!, granted the one who called her cute was a G-5 thug, but still, someone call Ivankov and gender bend her ass already so her dream will come true of being taken seriously.
Yeah I agree, I never remember her being that insecure, but then again we've never seen her harassed by guys before either so she could have always been that way.. but they might as well be screaming Kuina similarities with that.
This episode was great, can't wait for the new world. Not to be some kind of perv, but I'm glad Nami is no longer wearing her other outfit.. it was getting too stale (not like other crew members get enough changes either though). One Piece never fails to make me laugh, but the absence of Franky was depressing, assuming he really is sick, I hope he gets better soon.
Do they ever show what happens with Caribou? or after Pekoms beats the crap out of him he just randomly disappears.. I can't imagine him passing up an opportunity to grab more mermaids without any of the powerful pirates to kick him off the island. He was presumably unconscious so Neptune's army could have done something with him, or he could have died, but it seems like an unfilled gap, but it's probably too early for me to even ask something like that.
