honestly I was a huge fan of the show, but god his "bouncy" form really just ruined the show for me. 2nd gear was bad ass when it came in and I was super hyped when haki was introduced. All to just make this nigga look like a fucking idiot with tribal tattoo haki who fucking joots around making fart noises is supposed to be my luffy!?

Wish Mingo ended that niggas life after making that retarded form that didn't even fucking work all that good.

Chopper has and will always be a trash character, fucking crybaby useless ass kung fu fucking racoon isn't even funny.
>>
I can understand niggers and spics loving dbz because they can relate to it irl because all they do is yell and fight irl as for hxh they like to pretend to be intellectuals.as for bnha it's a shitshow with the only redeeming quality being the art.nobody fucking cares about. BC is irrelevant. But the only thing I genuinely don't understand is one piece fans what do they find so good in that series. The story keeps repeating itself every arc. The mangaka gets lazier by the day and can't draw for shit.the main characters are one dimensional and unlikable.really what's the appeal of this series. Any other shounen has what wan piss has but better.

And look what happened there.

The arcs you listed (except Marineford) follow the formula, however you pretended like the ones that contradict you don't exist. And WCI subverts the formula in other ways. No need for me to stfu just so that you can have your way.

Bro I could probably give u a ton more examples. Just on top of my head Arlong arc being one on top of my head(saving nami) Arabasta(defeating crocodile) its a huge show and I'm not a fan and I can't be bothered because I lost interest after Rob lucci fight .matter of fact it's u who needs to name the few unique arcs that don't follow thisnformula to make your shit and pathetic show look appealing

Why is a formula a bad thing? Isn't execution much more important than premise? Also, what are your thoughts on the world building?
>>
>>188276271
But we do believe it's flawed. Most fans will criticize FI, PH, Dressrosa and Davy Back. The death of the protagonist's brother leading to a 2 year timeskip and the protagonist legitimately questioning his endgame goal does indeed set it apart. And the way you type is not doing you any favors, this is an 18+ website.
>>
>>188276211
Im not reductive u fucking turd .stop lying she litteraly asks luffy for help so he proceeds to beat arlong and zoro beats his henchmen bla bla bla
>>
>>188276480
Yeah, but that is not what the arc is about. Nami asking for help in her most dire hour is just an aspect of the arc. Remember that the arc started with the crew entering the village because Nami betrayed them and stole their boat. A considerable chunk of the arc is Nami's backstory, for example, which is different from Chopper's or Sanji's backstory - all stories of conviction, of course, but still very much different stories.

And that is why you are reductive. You break an arc down to the bare minimum of its content, and then pretend that this single aspect of it is representative of how the arc palys out. Again, you are ignoring that execution is much more important than premise, and just look for similarities for the sake of pattern recognition. Seeing a pattern, however, is not criticism. It is just stating a fact.

Also, why do you keep ignoring the question about world building?
>>
>>188276599
what do you think he's going to say about the worldbuilding lol. look at his agenda. it's not hard to imagine what he'll say.
>>
>>188275721
The setting and theme remains the same for each arc, there really is no "world-building" unless you consider painting a turd a different color contrasting from the other turds. I have no idea why people fixate on pretentious writing contrivances anyway.

>>
>>188276599
Reductive or not As I said I'm not a fan of the series .but the premise doesn't matter namis backstory doesnt matter at ALL if it all boils down to the one single conclusion that in the end that you must help damsel in distress and defeat the big bad villain and that is cool for what it is matter of fact I think that's what gripped many people in.but this is what ticks me off you wanpiss fags try to make your shit kiddy show way more interesting than it really is .

It's way more interesting than your reductionism, yes. Otherwise the threads wouldn't reach 500+ replies every time. We barely discuss people or kingdoms being rescued in our main threads.
>>
>>188276813
At least try dude. You need to bow out at this point, you're just going to get destroyed if you haven't read the series.
>>
>>188276753
Because each island feels exactly the same with the inhabitants being oppressed or something, and needing Luffy to come save the day. How generic is that? I mean, if you're using the term "world building" as just visiting different places, there's a zillion different stories out there from all sorts of different mediums that have just that. But how does that make it good and entertaining? Certainly not recycling the same damn formula for each arc.
>>
>>188274554
That's fine. You don't have to like One Piece. I personally don't like Boku no Hero. But it's still a big series anyway. People are free to like whatever they want.
>>
>>188276830
Good on you. I'm not out for people telling them not to have fun. I'm just saying that you are simply delusional
>>
>>188276789
>but the premise doesn't matter namis backstory doesnt matter at ALL
What? Why? Because the climax is similar? Are you just reading stories for the conclusion? Manga are entertainment, not riddles to be figured out. Do you also not listen to music because you already know how it ends?

>but this is what ticks me off you wanpiss fags try to make your shit kiddy show way more interesting than it really is .
But I never even said any of this is interesting. As a matter of fact, I don't really like Arlong Park all that much. I was just trying to explain to you that not everyone is reading One Piece for the premise, but rather for the execution. You seem to have a rather narrow viewpoint on narrative media as a whole, and it would probably be to your own benefit to try and widen that a bit. If you dislike One Piece that is totally fine. But don't take it for something that it isn't trying to be, and then complain about that.
>>
>>188276874
Whole Cake Island had 0 oppressed inhabitants, neither did Zou. All are quite comfy and happy there.
>>
>>188276895
I'm not delusional, and neither are you. Have a nice day.
>>
>>188276783
Execution? You mean the uninteresting, predictable fights and ending buffet scene? Great execution, definitely not formulaic.

>>
>>188276874
>if you're using the term "world building" as just visiting different places
That's not what I use the term world building as. I mean world building as painting a big coherent and interesting world that isn't just there for the sake of the protagonists. As I listed above, there are tons of aspects of the One Piece world that the protagonists have never even interacted with, that people are still excited about. The world feels like a believable place that actually moves and acts and does stuff behind the scenes. Even when we aren't looking, things are constantly moving forward everywhere, and when the camera swings left of the island we are currently on, we usually get a big reveal that no one saw coming. Why do you think so many people were excited for the Reverie arc? That's what good world building is, and I struggle to come up with a manga that does a better job at that.
>>
>>188276896
>Manga are entertainment, not riddles to be figured out.
What a dumb thing to say. It's you who needs to broaden his horizons buddy. Mystery and keeping you guessing is one of many strong points of any good manga/anime /story
>Do you also not listen to music because you already know how it ends?
No but if I keep listening to the same track over and over again I sure as he'll get bored of it
>>
>>188276954
Somebody should make a list of the repetitive formula Oda does for each arc. The Wan Pissers are grasping at straws when their only excuse is, "sometimes that doesn't happen".
>>
>>188276940
I never said it isn't formulaic. I precisely said that a formula is not the be-all-end-all of a work of fiction. Or do you refuse to read any literature after having heard of Joseph Campbell? Do you think that Superman and Star Wars are the same story because Luke and Superman both wack a bad guy at the end?

Reverie's not done by the way, fellow OPchad. Oda confirmed we're going back this year. Our worldbuilding twistdropping arc is coming back.

Why are you using manga/anime and "story" as a synonyme? Grappler Baki sure as hell isn't a good story, but it is a fantastic manga. That's what I meant when I said you need widen your viewpoint a bit. Not all works of fiction have the same endgoal.

All of these are world building questions. None of these have anything to do with Luffy punching someone or peasants being oppressed.

Luffy will beat the big bad guy, happy ending, and then some feast scene, just like every other arc. I think we can guarantee Oda isn't going to pull some End of Evangelion finale.

>>188277256
>>188277268
Stop misdirecting.the conclusion I meant that in every encounter luffy will kill the big boss and zoro will kill the 2nd in command and each nakama will kill a general. Rince and repeat. As for the one piece, really ?, does anybody fucking cares at this point.

Yes, the hero in a hero's journey tends to win.
However, multiple times it has been not because of luffy but because of others.
He has also lost.
When you have a main character face conflict and the show aims to continue, they will often win said conflict.

This is pretty much what happens in every single arc in One Piece:

now we're gonna explore island
now we're gonna eat muchies, play dumby while nami says mony zoro says swordy and sleepy sanji says cute grilly chopper be obnoxious reindeer epicstyle the other nakama are fodder
oopsie now we in danger cause luffy is goody got us in danger very funzies
now ecah one separates in groupsies, do a lot of milking until comes the villains and fight each of the nakama.

>SH come to island
>get separated whether consciously or unconsciously
>come across the special qualities of the island whether it's the culture or the surroundings
>find through that arc's specific characters about the big bad and the operation he's running
>crew comes back together after gathering intel and preparing in their own ways
>fight starts after an unavoidable situation where the villain strikes first happens
>Chekov's gun starts to rear its ugly head giving the SH and their friends a time limit (Noah, Smiley, Birdcage, Big Mom)

I'm too lazy to count them all, but I know most of the series its just islands or places with an oppressive dictatorship that Luffy comes to save. I know you Wan Pissers are super picky about how people describe in long detail these arcs that may slightly variate, but the theme and setting always remain the same, that's the problem. It's all a formula.

The majority of the arcs have the same structure where Luffy goes to a new town or island, beats up the local villain and moves on. A couple of arcs did this differently and were the better ones but it just wasn't enough, repetitive stop-starts kept killing momentum before it could build up. It's been the same repetitive formula ever since, except Zou.

Marineford had hella hype, Onigashima's where the hype's at and what everyone wanted Wano to be. Volume sales will undoubtedly pick up there. To compare to another OP arc, we're still exploring the desert in Alabasta if you compare to where we are in Wano. Only in the latest chapter did things pick up.
>>
>>188277825
>What makes you think it will stop?

Volume 90 stopped this.

Pretty sure most are because of the bad pages in the manga. The pages were badly inserted, making half the page appear inside the binding or something.

>Arlong Park
Arlong Pirates were caught and didn't rin away. Luffy didn't listen to any story, he specifically turned it down. Luffy didn't cry. Strawhats engaged all of them at the same time. You're wrong here.
>Alabasta
Again, Crocodile didn't run away. Neither did his goons. Luffy never cried here as well if I recall. And Crocodile was praised here when the SH went here. Wrong.
>Thriller Bark
Literally no civilian population here. It's a pirate ship. It's a Pirate crew. Moria wasn't oppressing anyone on the ship, brainlet. He's the captain. This removes your "rebel flashback, etc".Wrong here too. Every Strawhat didn't find some underling to fight either.
>Fishman Island
The kingdom was prospering with Neptune's rule. He's the good guy, he isn't oppressing anyone, what? Disregards the rebel flashback bit, Luffy doesn't cry here.

And the biggest thing, Luffy doesn't make plans you moron. He goes along without much thinking. He literally doesn't think.

Im starting to think you're an actual brainlet who skips through arcs and calls them all the same.
>>
>>188278011
maybe he should plan the end plot too of these days
>>
>>188278089
Not true. Most fans have been bored since then. Only on 942 did things pick up again. Those were just great chapters, the fandom went nuts on them. Compare to say 934 where people just snoozed.
>>
>>188278097
That's the one he's had planned the longest, if you pay attention.
>>
>>188278002
Why are you deflecting? It doesn't change the fact the continuous drop came to a halt and disproved you at volume 90. It gained sales at 90, contradictory to "keeps dropping".
>>
I disagree with some people here. OP is long but it's not boring to really watch it. There's also a lot of twists that you wanna discover yourself once Oda has decided to get into that time. I've seen PC OP games and they look fun. Another thing, the worlds biggest media and entertainment brands are getting into crypto and Ecomi being one of them which has one of the Pokemon founders in. I wish they can have Zoro as one of their collectibles tho!

One Piece is the greatest manga in the history.
>>
>>188278155
This. More definitively so when Onigashima's done.
>>
>>188278155

>>188278131
Its not coming to an halt, retard.

>2011
37,996,373

>2017
11,495,532
>2018
8,113,317

OP lost 30M, that's the biggest drop in manga history.
>>
>>188278179
That doesn't make it "great". It means it caters to the most amount of people.
>>
>>188278096
I never said "runs away", just defeats the main villain and stops them from ruling over the helpless entities of whoever occupies the area. I never said he made plans, you like to argue with someone else and project it onto me. You also reminded me, each character has some long contrived "sad" backstory.
>>
>>188278228
That's back when OP's length was still somewhat reasonable. The biggest barrier now is latecomers have a giant mountain of chapters to climb. And again, the volumes have a very high chance of increasing again when the war against Kaido starts.
>>
>>188278179
Avengers Endgamae is the second most selling movie of all time. Does that mean anything? In a few months it will be forgotten. The same thing will happen to Wan Piss, because it didn't bring anything new on the table.
>>
>>188278275
OP will not get new readers. We both agree on that. It can only rely on the fandom, and as showed by the sales and the poll, a lot of fans are starting to drop it, that's why the sales are going down and OP can barely sell 2M now.
>>
>>188278279
Not true. OP's like the first 3 Star Wars during the 70's in Japan. There are entire museums and amusement parks of OP there.
>>
>>188278228
>it's not coming to an halt, retard
Do they not teach you past tense english in spic land? Came to an halt means it did once. In other words, your "constantly dropping" statement was turned down since volume 90.
>biggest drop in manga history
Biggest seller has big drops. Though small sale fags like you won't understand. Keep seething though, it'll keep being the best seller and you'll keep crying about it.

Yeah, manga sales are truly irrelevant when it comes to a manga and a manga industrial company. Are you retarded?

I'm saying total manga sales are irrelevant if OP keeps dropping sales and readership for each volume. Jump is already looking for a replacement for that reason, because OP is doomed to keep losing sales unless Oda does something drastic.
>>
>>188278712
It still remains the best seller of jump. Regardless of how much it has dropped. So there's other series to "axe" other than One Piece. Only a retard would axe his best employee with no downsides.
>OP is doomed to keep losing sales unless Oda does something drastic
I don't expect a non reading shitposter to understand, but the entirety of timeskip has been building up to the Wano War. Which is gonna happen soon.

And jump makes money from One Piece other than the volume sales, moron. Including magazine, databooks, figures, games, etc. But really, since it'll just disprove your own argument. I assume you'll be too scared to look at that information.

OP sales when it comes to anime, figures, merch etc is pathetic and outside of Japan the manga has only 70M in total sales. If we compare it to other IPs, its more irrelevant than Barbie and Cars. The only thing keeping OP alive are Jap sales and they are clearly dropping as proved by the numbers and poll.

The art is so wonky, The is an absurd amount of characters constantly introduced, They keep making so many subplots, Half the cast doesn't actually do anything and at times it reads more like a book.

Seems you don't understand how it works, like an idiot, obviously. It only lists the top 8-9. Why else do you think Naruto and others aren't in the japanese sales section? Because they didn't sell enough to be displayed there.

Also just to clarify, don't think these are overall merchandises. This is just Banpresto's sheet.
>>
>>188279088
Don't move the goalpost. OP's merch dont sell as proven by the stats showing that its at the bottom and the world wide sales list it below Toy Story. As I said the only thing keeping OP alive are manga sales and those are clearly dropping.

Can you not read a basic accounting balance sheet? It's listing the TOP SELLERS. One Piece is one of banpresto's best asset from jump.

If you don't understand this, look at the worldwide sales. Naruto is there, look at nippon sales, it isn't there. Why? Not because Naruto isn't sold in japan, but because it didn't make the cut for top 8.

All this means is that One Piece is amongst the top 7 in Japan by Banpresto. Banpresto probably owns most figures of jump, if not all.

(Yes, this means you proved yourself wrong. Great job).

I only got to the end of Dressrosa, but I think it's a good series. I think the "lol same formula" meme comes from the fact that Luffy and friends never seem to learn to watch their backs.
>Innocent girl is attacked by the Buggy pirates
>lol it's Nami and she stole their ship and treasure
>Innocent Butler that has watched over Katya that seems to shoo everyone away
>lol it's Captain Kuro and he nearly gets away with his plan
>Some innocent guy nearly dies on the Baratie's doorstep - Okay, Sanji feeds him because of his trauma
>lol it's Don Kreig and he straight up blows up the Baratie
>Nice girl shops for swords with Zoro and hot lady shops with Sanji in Loguetown
>lol Turns out one's a Marine hunting for the strawhats and the other is a pirate on the hunt for Luffy
And so on and so forth.
The show starts to get its act together during the Sabaody Archipelago even though Kuma turns out to be a good guy and would you look at that. Roger's first mate is here too. It was a breath of fresh air to see that Luffy and crew met an obstacle they couldn't pass with slow-motion Gum-Gum Bazooka. Then the time skip.
His alliance with Law is really what marks a change in style for OP, I think. He serves as a straight man for Luffy's headstrong nature and serves as a guiding system to Luffy's propulsion. Giving the show some sort of overarching plan, rather than it being just Luffy and friends wandering to random islands and barely making it out. Kinda like a Vivi 2.0
Just some anon's opinion.

Comedy and mysteries.
Also it seems to combine a lot of aspects other shonens only have parts of or do worse because otherwise it wouldn't be as popular.

Nakama and infinite asspulls save them everytime.
Explain how usopp won against sugar.

>>188282719
Terrified someone into unconsciousness? It happens in the real world too for people with fragile bodies, like Sugar. Usopp making that face out of surprise isn't new either, we've seen it countless times in the past. For example, when he ate the Tobasco sauce.

I'm talking about how usopp breath fire.

Not that anon, but I own the series and the art is shit even when printed, at least in the later volumes, OP art peaked between Skypeia and Water 7
>>
Skypeia is an arc that you can completely skip and nothing would have missed except minor worldbuilding.
>>
>>188285265
Yeah, that was in the tobasco scene too.

Not that anon, but I own the series and the art is better even when printed, at least in the later volumes, OP art is at it's best.

Keep lying to yourself

>>188274554
No one does OP. We only watch it because it's been around so long that it feels like watching a childhood friend in the terminal cancer ward. It's get worse as time goes on but you don't want to abandon it and want to see it through to the end

>>188274554
Reading your post I have concluded that you might very likely be an idiot.

Everything is repetitive if you over simplify it
>Characters do stuff
>Holy shit, again?! What a repetitive hack.

>A manga about pirates, adventure, kingdoms and fight has a lot of fighting to defeat enemies and saving friends

He isn't anti killing per se, he just doesn't go for the kill after winning the figh, do you really think he cared if Lucci lived after fucking him up that bad un the middle of an island that was getting bombed? Or croco after punching him through meters of hard stone and blasting him to the sky?
