Last Thread at the L.
If not for the current vastly improved art, Cavey and DD's fighting + fleshed out character, DR would be just below Alabasta for me. But since it does have those things, it's now my 3rd favorite arc after Skypiea and the whole period from when Luffy got in ID to when MF War ended (which are 2 arcs technically but...I like to group them into 1 as Rescue Ace arc LOL)
Btw, DD is Yonkiral
I put Dressrosa in my top five to be honest. Doflamingo is definitely my favourite villain so far, and I loved reading it weekly.
It's my favourite Arc next to MarineFord. Their's a lot of reasons why it was a good arc to me, too lazy to reiterate all the posts you've missed tho atm lol.
Wow, sorry to hear that.... I would hope our forum's top rate posters wouldn't let a few ups and down detract them from posting, but I would understand if it did. Hope to see those who left come back though, I see tenchu and Kaze are still around on this page, that's good.
Personally, I feel Oda probably changed, or rather "refined" some stuff around in terms of story/plot balancing during the slow DR chapters. A lot of the chapters seemed like they were being milked to be honest, but I feel even if Oda was milking chapters he at least did it in a way that it all tied together.
I like Dressrosa. I really liked it actually, probably my 3rd or 4th favorite arc when it's all said and done. I thought Doffy was a great villain and commanded a ton of respect from those who didn't even like the character, which is tough to do.
I have high hopes for Zou and the rest of the story, we probably won't have a need for multiple flashbacks like we did back there in DR, and hopefully the filler/milk chapters are kept to a minimum.
Surely Oda realizes that the story will require a (slightly) faster pace now that everything seems to be one domino knocking down the next, especially with the Sanji bit.
Most people were dissapointed with Drrerosa(Not me). If you wanted to know the general consensus.
Just got back around a couple days ago. Saw you, Andrew, Coquinne, Kidd, Rabbit, fulmine, Furiniji, tlawisop, etc still around, which is good. Had no idea DEW was mod (slowpoke.jpg)
Even though I was off the forums for a bit I never missed a chapter. Sorta bummed I missed out on the Dressarosa debates but I'm sure Zou will entertain a good crowd
Wut. Most of them are gone.
