I thought this was a damn good episode. Art and pacing was good and animation was decent. No complaints, really.
I really loved the filler scenes, added more depth to the rushed scenes in the manga.
Also, I'm fine with Inoue next week because while it's mostly an exposition episode, there are quite a handful of action scenes. Preview looks promising.

WOW! The anime actually had some really decent artwork!
And Sanji's fight scene looked great.
Music was also very well used throughout the episode.
Not sure if I liked the Hody/VDD meet as much as I did in the manga.
It seemed darker and had more cursing than the anime AFAIK.
Good episode overall though. Glad to see the anime is doing FI so good,
sad that it seems better than Oda.
Its hilarious how people think its Odas fault what happened with the manga
First, there was nothing he could do about the brightness of the setting. Manga is black and white....so while its okay to say the anime did it better, this isn't Odas fault at all
Second, Oda has tons of situations to keep in mind when writing every detail...in other words he has to write quick yet effectively. Its impossible for him, at this point, to write without the flaws.....the man has so many stories left to tell its only natural he'd needed to have a changing pace
I see people commenting that FI was too slow too quick.....? Everyone would NEVER be satisfied.
Also, don't give me this bs about pacing and whatnot, people are enjoying this arc more not because its in the anime, but simply because no ones in mad anticipation as to seeing an established foe. Everyone during the manga time was so impatient, that messed up their view on things. Now, people have the manga to satisfy their ongoing story needs and can appreciate in the anime what this arc was all about
Actually, I can't recall the anime really adding much of overall significance between Thriller Bark up to the time skip. I think the only exception was Sabaody Archipelago and Amazon Lily. Thriller Bark, Impel Down, and Marineford had some rather bad filler and overall sluggish pacing, outside of a handful of episodes.
It's just that on Fishman Island, and with some good examples in this episode, they are including filler that does not feel like filler (for the most part). There's no Buggy filler, or the equivelent of such, being thrown at us and filler is being used better to prevent wisely to prevent the staring contests and the "slow running" that plagued Marine Ford. The Sabo flashback was the first "arc" that I recall in the pact couple years that had a consistent effort being put into the filler that helped flesh out the series and characters. The past 30 episodes or so have been quite an improvement in terms of pacing, at least in my opinion.
Now this episode was quite good, despite some dodgy animation. The scene with Hody and Vanderdekken had some good ambience, with Hody's voice actor really selling how he is able to intimidate these pirates to do his bidding. There was also some real suspense with Hatchi outrunning the arrows--possibly the best executed scene in the episode. Also well-done was the comedy in the scene with Sanji and Chopper. Couldn't help but to laugh during some of those exchanges.
The whole arc is shit anyway....
Can't wait for the set off to new world
I really enjoyed this episode, especially since I was looking forward to seeing how the scene with VDD and Hody would be executed in the anime. I feel that the anime is doing a really good job with this ark.
Jinbe is in the anime now! Yes~~~!
i am sorry but can somebody make a list of what anime 'explain things more' than in the manga in this arc because up until this episode I can't find one including this " Den explaining that all ships that crash into Fishman Island eventually end up at the Sea Forest, and that the Sunny would be there." i mean in Oda did explain why sunny got there in the manga.
For the next episode i just hope two things
1- That this is the only shitty drawn moment
2- That A and B (who could have at least appeared on the preview, but didnt ¬¬XXX) are as close as possibal to my prediction
Otherwise most of my Ask VDD answers involving them will be completely fucked
I don't see what's so bad about that drawing.
