    Re: Volume 98 Predictions/Discussion

    The bright orange filter didn't keep Usopp off the spine of volume 76.

    Re: Volume 98 Predictions/Discussion

    I wonder if Oda will sneak the Kaido body back in for the alternate dust jacket under the cover (along with the obligatory hidden pandaman). He's showed off rejected cover ideas in that space before....

    A shame to see Kaido get cut between the sketch and this version. Sure, he made a busy cover even busier, but the incredible art of his dragon form was a highlight of every other chapter of the...

    Re: Volume 98 Predictions/Discussion

    With chapter 1000 falling squarely in the middle of the volume, I don't think it'll get as much fanfare as it did in the magazine. It'll be mentioned on the ads and there'll definitely be the logos...

    Thanks for sharing, that's definitely the best one I've seen. Props to the artist.

    I think making the whole sky black darkens the image a little too much but I certainly couldn't do any better.

  7. Sticky: Re: Chapter 1,001: Battle of Monsters on Onigashima

    Chapter 1000 was great, and the start of the Kaido and Big Mom fight is unquestionably a momentous event, but there was, in hindsight, a feeling that the chapter wasn't completely for us, the...

    I said it in the volume thread and I'll say it here, the only only other time we had a truly joined set of covers (21 and 22), they were obviously planned and designed to be that from the start, then...

    Re: Volume 98 Predictions/Discussion

    I really like the original one conceptually, with Kaido's body snaking past twice, breaking up the scene. The poses are definitely better in the final version though.

    I'd love to see another...

    Luffy, Yamato, all the Scabbards and dragon form Kaido. I'm gonna call that a win, predictions-wise. You can even see Oda considering the bit with Luffy and Yamato running side by side through the...

    New metric for card predictions:

  21. Re: One Piece chapter 1,000 official countdown on Twitter!!

    It looks like they broke things up with more of a focus on keeping a relatively even amount of time/pages in each block, as well as matching more or less what's in each of the recent box sets. There...
  22. Re: Vivre Card: One Piece Visual Dictionary, new One Piece Databook on sale 4th Septe

    Yamato will doubtless be getting a full card eventually, but I imagine he's in colour and backgroundless here mostly because they just used the art from the Jump cover he was on, which wouldn't have...

    The real surprise absence is Oda himself. He's been top 50 in every poll except the first. Hard to say if he'll be able to keep that up without international votes.
  24. Re: One Piece chapter 1,000 official countdown on Twitter!!

    Odds are slim to none and I'd be upset if they tried. Every previous set of poll results has been included with the next volume after they were completed and not a single one of them has added...

    Chapter 1000. Wow. I don't think there's likely to be another manga with the ambition to make it this far anytime soon, and I doubt there'll be another that catches my attention the same way. It's no...

    The choice to say "New starter set" instead of "starter set vol 3" makes me worry it'll end up being half Wano-disguise Strawhats to go with the Luffy-taro and Zoro-juro cards.
