I knew the chapter was out today..... just really didn't care..... i honestly have no burning desire what so ever to read this chapter.....
thank you for putting a shirt that says "pirate empress" on hancock, good lord the only difference between her and robin is really a slight change in her nose..... Oda is uniquely horrible at drawling different women. Hey i get it dont fix what isnt borken, the one model looks great works great, but if you want all men in the world to identify a single woman as the most beautiful..... maybe make her a little unique..... like the only woman in OP with blonde hair, or the only woman in OP with tattoos.... or the only woman in OP with highlights..... idk something unique aside from robin's everything with nami's nose. (also i know women in OP already have most of what i said covered, there are blonds and tattooed women....) here is my solution to the hancock problem.
1- the "lucy from fairy tail" approach, lucy was very confident in her looks despite the fact she looked like most of the other hot girls and none of the men drooled over her too much. So Oda can do that with hancock, have hancock just very over confident but none of the men in OP are overly attracted to her. her character would be nearly unchanged.
2- the "its all about attitude" approach- her attitude is shit currently, she has the attitude you would expect of the hottest woman in the world except she looks like a black haired older nami, give her a more "suggestive" attitude, men are attracted to that......some men are.....
3- wardrobe change- well this is self explanatory but give her better looking cloths. her first outfit was ok but......well...... oda isnt a good enough artist to really make that outfit......"pop"......i guess...... The only problem with this plan is that nami already wears a bikini as her clothing of choice......so unless Oda wants to put hancock some very unrealistic clothing this option is closed
4- and this is my favorite- learn how to draw better- I get it..... i wont pretend i don't...... there is a reason most women in manga have....... large breasts.... and the fact it attracts a younger male audience isn't even the main reason. it is easier to draw women in manga with a certain chest size. just basic art class, when drawling a woman's chest they ether have to be big enough to reach the edges of her figure or else the artist has to get better at shading and cant give the woman a man's hair cut or else the fans stop caring whet gender the character is....(example- look at AoT, is mikasa a woman? who knows!!!! is armin a woman? could be!!!! is.........that dude who ate the colossal titan a woman? idk but we saw his chest recently so i will say no!) so there you have it, Oda just needs to find a way to draw slightly larger breasts on Hancock (kubo can show him, kubo isnt working now right?). and by slightly larger i mean enough to make nami look like she is still in a training bra. is that a shallow reason for men to consider hancock the most beautiful woman in the world? idk shut up.
seriously this does bother me a little. when i saw alvida in the lead up to the ID arc and before the TS it was the shock of shocks. I thought for sure Oda was going to ignore her (silently remove her from the story) because she is literally hancock. and she isnt even hancock 2.0 because she was freaking first. long black hair, suggestive clothing choice, obsessed with her own beauty, constantly feeding off the attention she gets form being beautiful, hancock is a clone of alvida.
and i would forgive it all if this was some type of meta joke or gag that oda is doing with hancock, BUT IT ISN'T......
anti hancock rant over lets see with the arc that broke my appreciation for OP has to offer........
i mean...... you can pay your respects during a banquette i see no reason you should knock their ceremony...... oh is this still a knock on the food shortage thing? ya i still dont care about that, make more food morons, human civilization was not created by living in baron deserts hoping food will come to you, you need to find farming soil and build a civilization there....... god these people are stupid.....
or am i the stupid one for not realizing that wano is actually only the size of choclate town, and oda is doing what he did in DR and making us think it is 10 times larger then it actually is.
o-kiku is super-duper strong? considering all fuji got was a "you look strong" that means that Luffy is not estimating okiku above admiral level based on the fact she cut jimbe's top knot off.......zoro who took down a small lizard must be PK level..... I know that luffy is more grounded, and he doesnt judge fodder vs strong by luffy's current level like us fans do.........but he kinda should..... or at least cool it on the hype...... o-kiku is competent at best...... unless we missed it and sometime off screen o-kiku one shot hawkins and zoro with a flying slash.
"the citizens of wano will understand this message" you mean...... only the good citizens? did all you guys get together and deiced that the moon was the symbol of your rebellion? or is this like a wano country thing? because if it was just something you invented like 5 days ago that is really lame, just say look for the moons dont pretend like it is some meaningful symbol. If it is some meaningful symbol this idea is suicide someone will have to notice these cards being handed out and call kiadou......
no dont make franky obtain blue prints he has a really bad track record of holding on to blue prints.
yep and sanji the pirate knows what a gesha is....... these nonstop Japanese references make ZERO sense in this damn manga. Isnt wano supposed to be this secret hidden away island that no one ever goes to? it is. so where are these Japanese references coming from?
1- are these really old customs in the OP world? it is possible that in OP hundreds of years ago these Japanese references were the norm, and wano just froze themselves in time at that point. if that is the case why would luffy be practicing sumo and why would sanji be attracted to gesha? those would be anicent relics of the past, you don't see us craving for women these days to dress up in ancient roman fashion..... if these are really old OP customs how did they persist to this day in wano? just 50 years ago our culture looked very different..........
2- are these wano customs that the rest of the OP world knows about? then how on earth are they so popular? IRL there is a secluded island of tribesmen who still throw spars and have zero technology, you don't see people begging to learn their ancient combat sports...... more importantly why does the rest of the world even know about these customs? I know that pirates have been there like roger and ace. but are those pirates really the type of people who will now go to the east blue and teach sumo to children? is that what shanks was doing in east blue, bringing the culture of wano to windmill village?
and most importantly, even if these are really old OP customs that wano froze in time, or if they are wano customs that everyone knows about some how. why would luffy and sanji care so much? sanji you have seen nami naked and you just went to an island covered in mermaids who cover up with only shells....... but you want to see robin in more clothing then a Russian woman in a blizzard in winter? and luffy, why the hell do you want a samuri sword now of all times? zoro has always been around and when you first grabbed his swords you didn't care at all...... if luffy was always this crazy about Japanese references when he first saw zoro's swords it wouldn't of been "which one is zoro's" it would of been "jack pot, one for zoro two for me!!!!!!!!" or idk take a damn sword from one of the millions of enemies you fight....pica had a cool one..... and if you really like sumo that much, why the hell have you only played it once? he only played it once for gods sake.... I have played soccer more then luffy has done this sumo thing he loves, and i HATE..... HATE..... HATE!!!!!!!! Soccer.
but what ever...... keep the non stop Japanese references the fans will love it.
OH i sure hope i get to see the "luffy and co handing out fliers" scene, this arc will not be good unless we devote 5 pages of the next chapter to luffy handing out fliers.
female ninija? is that what sanji called nami? ok fine that might actually be good looking......maybe..... I am thinking of a cat woman kind of vibe, if sanji is just thinking of nami wearing that ninja guy's clothing then see my above rant sanji sucks....
yes brook you will be very useful, nothing is more useful in stealing food then a mass less soul that cant touch anything.
so since nami is wearing a lot less clothing then she was before, does this leaf power actually have some combat application? wait before i get to combat application, why couldn't kin of gone all the way with this, just give nami a small skirt and nothing else, the dude is clearly a bad pervert....... but back to combat application, he could actually use this ability in combat, all he needs to do is have a entire deck of playing cards, and those them at people, and the second they touch someone he does his thing, and boom his enemy is wearing wool.....WOOL!!!!! very flamable wool!!! and then he lights them on fire....... or idk maybe a coat of spikes..... something dangerous......or oil! can this ability turn stuff into non clothing things?
that isnt the question you should be asking nami, the question you should be asking is "if i remove this clothing and it turns back into a leaf, will i still be wearing my old cloths" the answer should be yes and that seems like the better option..... oh right Japanese fan service
i get she is a joke, but.......um...... didnt otama establish that a ninja needs to be....... light?.....or at least in shape?
wow!!!!!! those samuri are worth 100 men??? that is as much as the entire WB commanders 5-13!!! those samuri are as strong as 10 average fishmen. maybe even 2 arlongs!!!!!!
ya still not impressed.......and these are supposed to be the best samuri too......
also is that one samuri using the scissor sword from kill la kill? are the Japanese references already over? normal katana are boring now? and come on...... we already had to look for 3 samuri, that was the first thing luffy had to do in the NW.......
"hi i am kin, I am looking for 3 samuri, well one child and 2 samuri, ya 3 samuri"
300 chapters later
"ok thank you for helping me and my 3 friends get home, before we can kill kiadou, we need to find 3 samuri"
hahahaha "they should still be alive" and since this is OP 20 years means they have had no drop in their power what so ever..... or were they 50 at the time? 70ish year olds do actually lose power in OP, OH NO! maybe now they are only as strong as 1.5 arlongs!!!!!!
ya this is the natural result of stealing.....people steal back, thus why civilization has rules...... also why are you even mentioning luffy? why the hell would anyone care who gave you that stuff? unless you want to name drop kiadou i doubt anyone you will name will change anything....
yes there is, but dont call him a hero or he will take offense to it then go on to do exactly what a hero would do.........................god i HATE THIS ARC..... luffy's exact reasoning was "a hero gives meat to people i want to eat all the meat" and luffy went and gave meat to people.......this isnt even a joke or character development, this is just Oda sucking.
to be fair mr thief, the samuri wouldn't do much either even if they were there. they would probably only be as strong as that old lady, that old lady that oda is drawling out attention to for some reason...... sure wonder why......
yes them not having a general is the problem....... if only those 9 samuri had a general they could beat kiadou. the only thing they are missing is a general......
all star? is that a demotion? are there only 2 calamaties now? to be fair, if you get beat as often as jack did, he deserves a demotion, I would forgive the lose to Fuji, but the loss to the elephant that is a demotion in my crew.....
jack "hey boss, i need to have you dig me out"
kidd "what? a second time in 3 days? what happened this time?"
Jack "an elephant hit me"
kidd "an elephant?"
jack "an elephant the size of an island"
kidd "why did you get close enough it an island sized elephant for it to sink you?"
jack "I was trying to sink it with my cannon"
kidd "you were trying to sink an elephant with a cannon?"
jack "yes, apperently the elephant didn't like that, so it attacked me"
kidd "you are aware that your cannons have enough range to shoot the elephant AND not be in range of its attacks right?"
kidd "yes range, cannons are not close range weapons, in fact they are very dangerous in close range.........you know what, sit there for a few more hours while i think up who i am replacing you with."
also.... even freaking jack is riding an animal?????? jack is a mammoth. he can be a mammoth, why does he need a walking shark? does every one in wano need to be riding an animal? what will king and kiadou ride in on? will the shogun be riding a dragon?
nami's changing breast size and smoker's mobile scar have nothing on Jack's ever changing sword shape...... look at those things, from one page to the next they go from being almost complete circles (very inefficient) to being slightly bent-in swords.
Jack is back!!!! oops he is getting cut by fodder......hey jack maybe you should of stayed under water.....
OH MY GOD!!!!! its shenron!!!!!! ok i have my 2 wishes all ready.
1- please make Wano arc over right now
2- kick sanji off the crew and replace him with renji...his sister replace his with his sister.
oh but if you are pre- cell saga shenron and i only get one wish then
1- kick sanji off the crew and replace him with renji
oh good perfect. part 2 to my earlier conversation with jack
kidd "oh good you are back jack, sorry i had to demote you from 'calamity' to 'allstar' if you perform good in the next few months you can work your way back up to........is that blood? why are you bleeding?"
jack "this samuri here cut me"
kidd "you worthless disgrace of a pirate, you are demoted to sheepshead, I swear to god if luffy solos you when i leave here I will demote you to batman/mouse man smile user"
jack "yes boss sorry boss"
kidd "also do you have your CoO on right now?"
jack "no the plot didnt call for it"
Kidd "turn it on, luffy law and those 9 samuri i killed years ago are all hiding in this area, go find and kill them"
ok.....so dragon it is. Who had dragon? dragon seemed a little on the nose for me, momo is already a dragon, and the same exact dragon kiadou is at that. AND when kin said he had a loved one killed by a dragon, i really thought that would be someone closer to him, not kiadou himself....
BUT dragon isn't bad. thank GOD it isn't the freaking oni fruit everyone and their mother thought kiadou was using.......that would be as nonsense as if kuma used the bear fruit, or if DD used the flamingo fruit....or if BB used the disappointment fruit. someone shouldn't use a fruit that is already their theme....that is way too lame for someone of Oda's skills. the dude may re use themes, but at least they are not horrible themes.
secondly, I am also glad if kiadou is going to have a heavily Japanese zoan, thank god it is something as recognizable as a dragon. I was half worried it would be some obscure Japanese folklore creature.
kiaodu "I use the 'slit faced woman furit' I have a bowel of water in my head and i scare people to death by revealing the snakes in my torse, but if you say i am beautiful i cut holes in your cheeks!!!!! fear me!!!! also that creature is immortal and controls the weather"
I still think the lion zoan would of been good, it would of been cool to see if oda could make a lame fruit like that have some power. lions are the king of beasts.....oh well, this is a much better idea giving kiadou a good fruit instead of trying to make a bad one work.
oh also, enjoy this picture of kiadou while you can. blow it up, make posters out of it, make it your desktop background, because next time we see kiadou he will be slightly bigger then jack, then he will be the same height as brook, then he will be around luffy's size.
sometimes it sucks reading a manga with art by a man who doesn't know how a ruler works.
