it's really pissing me off, that so many human bitches cannot appreciate what Oda is doing.
always this stupid "skypiea was boring, useless and a dumb copy of arabasta".
i laughed my ass off so much in the Skypiea-arc. Oda had so many good ideas in character-design and everything. what do you want more?!
"OH NO! SKYPIEA COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER IN ANOTHER ARC WHERE THE STORY SHOWS US THAT ROBIN IS REALLY A STRAWHAT AND THEY MADE NO MISTAKE IN SAVING HER FROM ENIE'S LOBBY! NO MEMORABLE FIGHTS!"
this is so pointless and stupid!!
stop with this shit and be happy about that what you get. and if you can't, think about arcs YOU would do in one piece without making any serious mistakes on your plan on the OP-Story and that every fan of each character could get their "scenes".
This is such a pathetic point of view. So now anything Oda does must be liked without question? He does not need you to protect him from his screw ups.
Skypiea could have been better in its actual arc. We could have had a better villain rather than some cookie cutter lunatic. The characters we met up there could have been memorable but they weren't. Finally, Robin doesn't actually do anything specific to obtain the trust luffy and co. Rather, Oda just needed her to participate in a longer arc to justify Enes Lobby.
Croc + Enel similarities.
2. Both manipulate their perspective peoples. (If you don't remember, luffy and co originally entered the non cloud island because they were betrayed.)
3. Crocodile aims to rule the world. Enel considers himself god and already rules skypiea.
4. Luffy has to save alabasta and skypiea from abolute destruction.
1. Dials ( just contextual fluff).
2. Huge gold reward at end.
3. Going merry mortally damaged.
Of all these examples, the differences are the essence of the story and the similarities are mostly contextual fluff. The only thing of note that occurred was the damage to merry. But that story was only begun in skypiea. It was finished and played out in the next arc.
So is it really wrong to desire not to get a repeat crocodile arc? Why is it bad to want a better one? I am not railing against all of Oda's work, just the work that was awful.
I loved Crocodile's arc, Ennes Lobby, and a much of thriller bark although that arc is not quite done yet. I am not going to give admiration where it is not deserved. I am not an idiot who cannot think for himself. You can pretend it was good. I will not.
