I think Naruto got too serious for its own good, kind of in the same way Dragon Ball or Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles did. One Piece keeps its goofy and wacky humour throughout the whole series so it doesn't feel out of place even in arcs dealing with slavery and drug addiction.Naruto on the other hand kind of throws its humour away, and gets far too melodramatic and brooding. When the ...

@sickVisionz said:@Petiew: They actually used an investment of over $4 million from venture capitalists to go legit...The investement was due to Crunchyroll's popularity and community at the time. Which was gained from the uploading of illegal fansubs. There's no doubt that they're totally legit now, but it's funny to see crunchyroll's subscribers use the exact same arguments for supporting them as were used against crunchyroll years ago.

@sickVisionz said:But they are legit...Yes they are now. But Crunchyroll used to be a streaming site for uploading fansubbed releases. Crunchyroll had a premium membership and ads, they were making money from not only the anime but also the fan translation. They eventually went legit, but they used the money from before to do this.

"It's all legit" coming from Crunchyroll is pretty funny considering how they made their money to start the simulcast business.

Oda's insistence not to kill characters does get annoying sometimes, and you're right in that some fights feel somewhat redundant because of it. We know neither is going to die, so is there much point?That said I prefer it over the Gantz style of introducing characters simply for the purpose of killing them all off. When Oda actually killed 2 major characters in the present time it was a huge ...

If you're getting rid of non-Japanese animated shows, shouldn't we also get rid of Japanese shows that aren't animated? Things like Super Sentai and J-Drama (If we have many of that).

It must be really really bizarre to jump into One Piece mid series. The weirdness amps up gradually every arc so you kind of get used to some of the crazy stuff over time.It's a shame you didn't start with the previous box set, there are a bunch of character recap episodes before they storm into the Enies Lobby tower.DREAMING! DON'T GIVE IT UP LUFFY!

Even if it was ultimately pointless, Sanji jumping in to save his friends rather than just for Nami's sake was the highlight of the chapter for me.It'd be nice for Oda to redeem his character.

Doraemon is much more popular than you're giving it credit for! He's basically a Japanese cultural icon. You'll find more people that know Doraemon than people that know Naruto and such in Japan.It's not unusual that people in China are very well aware of him as well. Plus there's a lot of merchandise potential with a cute mascot character.

@YotaruVegeta: Zoro didn't do anything that bad to her. His opponent was just so terrified that she couldn't control her powers and body for a bit. She'll be able to move again in a little while.

When I read through the manga really quickly I actually ran into that exact same problem!

@takashichea: Yep you got it!The second series had an arc based on the real life election that the group holds every year. The girls design their own election posters, so the anime did it too. Some of the voice actors reenacted the anime designs when this year's election came up which was cool.The show was a couple of seasons ago, so that's probably why you didn't get it right away!

@AURON570: There've been very few battles for the whole crew since the time skip. Chopper has used his other forms though, but just like in the early series brain point is his most used form. I don't think I've seen him use Scope since Alabasta strangely enough though.

@YotaruVegeta said:The rules are consistent in OP: either you train to become powerful or you become powerful through a Devil Fruit.It's normally both, having a fruit doesn't make someone super powerful. Luffy was really weak as a kid until he became creative and learned how to use his fruit. Kalifa from CP9 was probably weaker when she used her fruit since she had no idea what to do. Guys like ...

Bartolomeo says his motivations run deeper than Cavendish's wish to defeat Luffy. He might not actually want to defeat him at all.I'm more interested in whatever the heck is in his chained up "DANGER" suitcase.

@takashichea: I've always found having some good food actually helps me to de-stress a little. Taking some time off to cook dinner and sit down with it for a while can really help you relax and let your mind recover so you can start to take more in again. If you don't have the time for that, or don't like cooking, you should get some nice fresh fruit!

Sounds like you had a really busy day. Are you planning on visiting it again next year?I faced a decision to abandon my little sister to meet up with Tom Pinchuk.Just the way you phrased this made me really laugh. Start on that weight training!

Losing Bulma to Vegeta was really Yamcha's fault though. He repeatedly cheats on her and is shown to be kind of a scumbag, Bulma eventually dumps him after finding out about it.I guess the King Piccolo arc was where they first started the blood ritual. Krillin, Chiatzu and Roshi are killed and then eventually brought back.

The best thing about the Norland callback was that the dwarves were actually mentioned briefly all the way back in chapter 292.Some of these older translations are a bit wonky though, but you get the general idea.

I hope to Madoka that the image cap was removed. Speaking of whom, don't look at part of my gallery if you don't want to be spoiled for Rebellion!

Batman is Anime, and Zelda's an RPG. These are a few of the most dumbest (sic) things.

Always instant ban for Add Bots! No mercy to be found here! And We'll make fun of you while we're at it!
