Eh, at least I can get my caps for Takagi this time around. I'm still holding out for Fujita to pull out something as good as 372 again, but it is nice that Shimanuki is finally being allowed to do solo work. Hopefully he'll continue to improve as time goes on.
Ah, Sabaody has been doing pretty well as far as animation goes recently, so I hope the trend continues. Hopefully the animators got some more cash to work with seeing as One Piece is part of Dream 9 now.
