@King-Cannon said in Chapter 1058: New Emperors:
@Razh I don't think having the SH talk about their 2 year timeskips would be interesting to show either. It would be just exposition that most of them wouldn't care about and come off as out-of-place. Like, Sanji knows Luffy spent two years near Amazon Lily and that he was with Rayleigh. Does he need to know more than that?
It's more interesting when they talk about current ongoing events. Right now, though, they just have their bounties to go from.
Yeah, but like, Luffy had the most uneventful time. Room of Spirit and Time with wild animals. Usopp, Nami, Chopper and Brook's skips were pretty straightforward as well.
But then you have Zoro returning with one eye missing, from training with his arch nemesis.
Sanji learned Okama Kenpo with little tangible results and was taught meal recipes with vague benefits.
Franky came back from the lab of one person who's responsible for practically all of WG tech.
Robin spent time on one of the most mysterious WG projects up to date with no word as to what the goal of the entire ordeal is. Plus she hung around with Luffy's fucking father and brother.
All I'm saying is, an author who wrote Water 7 is capable of a lot more.
It sucks that I have to wait for Zoro's next big fight to discover what he found out about his heritage, for example. Meanwhile, there's a shapeshifting fox on Wano that took up panel space for no apparent reason. It doesn't look too god.
It hasn't been that long since we ridiculed Kubo for saying how he brings in new characters when he gets a writer's block.
