(is it me, or do the comments shrink week by week?)
Aw, it seems Toei couldn't continue their streak. The scenes of the Marines fighting were draggy and lackluster…..Luffy vs Smoker/Tashigi kinda had the same problem, but I smiled when Luffy laughed so......yeah. (also, Robin slapping that guy was hiliarously awesome)
It felt more draggy when Smiley started to fall and the fodder tried to ward it off....odd there's another fire error....isn't it supposed to explode immeditely when it comes into contact with fire?
As for Caesar's speech......meh, it's a mixed bag. On one hand, he took awkward pauses, had off faces in some shots, and he technically wasn't supposed to finish it. But on the other hand, Nakao's twisted excitement and perfect laughter balances it out for me.
Overall.....a meh episode, but not horrible.
