Fellow AP:ers have assured me that OP has not changed at all so that can't be it.
mhmm your (slightly ironic) comment made me think a little bit:
usually in every arc before we got huge lore dumps and flashbacks or explanations of the islands problems (drum/alabasta) before luffy finishes the villian off.
in wano we got that with oden/yamato flashback as well BUT the rest, well in fact a huge lore dump, is still missing. but the fights are already resolved.
that‘s what feels off. at least now i realise that more and more. oda did not want to give us those important aspects of wano story arc yet, for what ever reason. maybe we would cheer on luffy in a different way then?
(btw i still cheered for luffy and i am happy for him that he is on par with a yonko. it’s a milestone! how else could luffy face shanks?)
now i am more interested if oda indeed changed his storytelling here or if we are just not done yet
(uhm well orochi as a villian; that concluded…but it was not luffy or a strawhat who finished the job)
