    Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    That's actually the best argument AGAINST Yamato joining. Assuming Oda intended her to be Strawhat material, shouldn't there be at least some kind of interaction with her in the Oden flashback? Or,...

    I'm perfectly fine with him as a character. As long as the narrative itself never ever will try to sell him as anything other than a heavily flawed character.

    Nah, I'd say it's more related to something like thematic cohesiveness. There is some drop of quality regarding how the core themes and values of the specific arcs are presented and executed.

    The way I see it is that Oda sacrificed these recent arcs in place of the grand finale.

    It may not be a plot hole on a textual level, however, it completely falls flat on a subtextual level. Because the subtext told us about these standard mafia methods which Daz nailed perfectly.

    Re: One Piece 981: Joining the Fight

    So the implication now is that when Kaido appeared in front of the Kidd alliance, he in fact knew about their position from Apoo and therefore didn't try to suicide solely for shit and giggles, right?

    Poll: Re: Who is the final villain 3.0

    I think the final villain will be Rocks - because I voted that for some reason.

    Hopefully Teach will turn out to be the incarnation of Rocks so that I end up right in the end.

    That's exactly my feeling as well. That is, that act 4 will turn out quite much longer than the previous acts.

    So is the fifth act always shorter in a kabuki play? And what about the length of the acts in general, are they the same length (minus the last act?) or depends it on the specific play instead?
