Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations

Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. Most general objects are being removed from the wiki.

Doffy has become one of my favorite villains!!!

Post by Destinyheroknight (10,283 posts) See mini bio Level 21

Shoot, I was planning on making a discussion thread :(

Any who, I love this week chapter. Doflamingo is a great villain, he so evil but he treat his crew good and show them respect (that is rare with pure evil villains). I feel so sorry for the king and the soldiers, it no wonder some of them forgot who they was after being turn into toys

I knew Violet and Rebecca was related, I guess I call it

I do like Baby 5's bow and Senor Pink's T Shirt (Let's Baby!), also I love Trebol awesome beard (sad he don't look like that all the time)

I have a feeling Pica is going to be fighting Franky

I so glad Robin have opened up, I believe this is the first time we see her have that kind of face

I can't wait until next week chapter

@Destinyheroknight: idk how and why but i'm expecting cp0 to put down Doflamingo.

SABO IS FRIGGIN ALIVE!!!!!!

Koala from the Fisher Tiger flashback is back too, and that's cool and all but SABO IS ALIVE!!!

TODAY HAS BEEN THE MOST EXCITING DAY EVER IN MY MANGA EXPERIENCE!!!

@AFGM:

Sorry for being so late, anyway I think CP0 was only their for the news and probably left the island. It seem like they can't touch him, because he an Celestial Dragon and it is their job to protect him. I think they will save him from Kaido's wrath

I love chapter 730, it throw a lot of things at you. This arc is so crazy

Also, I going to murder my friend when he get back from France. But I can see, it would have been almost impossible to avoid spoilers of the next chapter. Now, I have to keep myself from reading the chapter until Monday :(

I was on Skypiea in the manga back in summer of 2012. Watched the anime with Toonami's pacing (it's on Water Seven arc). I guess I should catch up in the manga.

I always forget that this topic exists, I'll try to comment here more frequently XD.

@takashichea: By the way, the manga for me is much better than the anime, especially considering how bad the pacing of the current arcs is. The Water 7 arc and the next 2 arcs that follow it are awesome, I recommend you to keep watching the anime until they end, however after that I strongly recommend you to read the manga, but that's just my suggestion.

@Dekken:

The anime tends to stretch a lot. I should read the manga. It's okay, I forget to chip in the discussion thread. Oh, can you bump the Nokome Discussion? I have a special request for you. I put it in a PM.

One Piece's most recent chapters are jaw dropping to say the least. So hype.

I'm actually watching One Piece on HULU for the rest of Water Seven Arc instead of reading the manga. I usually multitask when I'm on Anime Vice. I watch One Piece as I work on wiki and adding winter trailers. I can't do the same for manga.

Another great chapter. The thing about One Piece is that even a minor character can get his moment and his origin story. The story about Cavendish was a bit strange but definitely unpredicted and I like that about One Piece. It always expends.

Violet surprised me at the end and I hope she will join Straw Hats after this arc.

Post by Destinyheroknight (10,283 posts) See mini bio Level 21

I didn't see that coming (wish, I can say that about Sabo). This why I like One Piece, I was wondering why Cavendish have a huge bounty. (he didn't seem like a pirate type to me).

I love how Oda mix eastern and western culture, Cavendish/Hakuba is Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde with a little of Kamaitachi mix in (wonder if Cavendish have a brother with healing powers LOL!)

I can't wait to see Doffy's world come crashing down, he should have listen to Law.

Now, I believe the fighting part of the arc is going to begin next week. (kind wish Franky can use General Franky)

Can't wait until next week

Edit: Also, I want to thanks One Piece Podcast for that info about the Kamaitachi

Also, I'm really digging the new Opening.

Man, I can't believe I been watching/reading One Piece for ten years now and I still into.

So apparently Oda already has a sort of concept design for what he wants for Gear 4th for Luffy. The picture I'm posting isn't what he drew, but it's supposed to look like the concept art that he made. I'm still wrapping my head trying to figure out what this Gear can do...

I'm sure he doesn't look all demon like when he's doing it, but that's what this artist drew :P Some assume it'll be something like this:

Now I suppose I could see this as a possibility, but I also feel that this would take a much smarter mind to figure out. Not to mention that it would totally destroy his body. But then again, Luffy's not shy to do that if it meant being strong enough to protect his friends. What do you guys think the new Gear 4th can do? I once doubted there was anything that could be done with the Rubber fruit, but Oda back handed me and threw in gear 2nd and 3rd, which is as creative as it gets when making a new power for a rubber guy :P

@Jinbeifan1:

I think it look silly and unnecessary. 2nd and 3rd Gear have a purpose, one boost Luffy's speed and the other boost his strength. This doesn't really add anything new, Luffy can already attack from long range. If their is going to be a 4th Gear, it probably will be something with Haki, but I don't see Luffy really getting a new Gear (since he have Haki now). Hoping Oda don't use this design, I'll be highly disappointed

@Destinyheroknight: I think it looks stupid too to be honest, BUT knowing Oda, I think he'd add a very creative and powerful spin to it. That's the only reason I'd accept that. Also I think I heard Oda said that there will be a fourth AND a fifth. I have NO clue to what he's going to do with all these gears, but I trust Oda to make it awesome and different. Even if this one looks pretty stupid lol.

That last panel just confirmed the obvious, One legged toy soldier is turning out to be a great character.

Post by Jinbeifan1 (3,284 posts) See mini bio Level 14

@bigz007: I actually hadn't thought about it, I figured the king was supposed to be the old warrior Karos (I think his name was lol) but then I started to put the time line together and was like 'Oooooh that makes sense' XD But I'm a little disappointed by what it looks like the fights are gonna be... Instead of Zoro and Luffy vs Fujitora and Doflamingo, it looks like it's going to be like this:

Luffy vs Fujitora

Doflamingo vs Karos

Zoro vs Pica :/

I really wanted to see if Zoro was on level with an admiral yet...

@Jinbeifan1: Don't underestimate the power of Oda's fights, he will make it epic nevertheless.
