pushing contest > anticlamtic punch in the manga
Completely disagree, do you like luffy looking consistently weaker, the anime made ot look like he was only as strong as caesar and before that they made it look like hody was too fast for him, they make opponents look a lot tougher so the internal progress gets all screwed up when luffy is getting messed up by everyone.
As an adaptation they should try to stay true to the manga
You can stretch fights without making them subpar
Enel finisher was one punch but he didnt dtruggle, lucci fight was continuius he wasnt trading blows, crocodioe had him fiht through sand but it was relatively easy, the flashbacks and the hit ni padding would have taken 3 minutes still
