My main problem was it didn't look like Luffy knocked out 50 000, but like 50.
it didn't look like luffy knocked 50.000 men,more like a 50. well it didnt't look like it was an army of 100.000 men from the start
So, I rewatched the episode. Luffy's speech about heroes is one of my favorite moments for him. Love it. The music choices were nice.
But it was all really slow and honestly looked like crap. I understand the 1 ep. = 1 ch. thing, but it's still really frustrating with certain episodes.
I didn't really like it.
The haki blast looked weird to me.
Gotta Say i loved Usopp in the cage when Brooke returned.
The Undeniable dream is the least expected dream
I actually think Luffy wants to fight Zoro and Sanji, guys. More than Hody. That's why he's pushed them. Because he hates them. After he beats them he's going to fight the manga Luffy. 'Cause, you know, of how diametrically opposed to each other those two characters are.[/empty stare]
After the last few eps it has really felt like One Ball Z...
Sadly they didn't even do 1chapter=1episode then. They fell short by about 2 pages zzzzz. Would've been a far better idea to finish the episode as the chapter finished imho.
Toei really needs to start stepping it up. Animation was horrible on all counts this episode, nevermind the horrible pacing. If Naruto can afford CGI to show entire armies with fancy swing around shots to make stuff look like a proper sizey battle, then Toei can too given the fact that One Piece is at least as successful. That haki blast deserved the royal CG treatment, no doubts about it.
Besides that, characters were horribly off-model. Luffy looked like a little chibi kid when he was looking at Hody. Nami looked like a little grinch, or sorta like fake Nami, when she was hiding behind the others. Etc etc. Seriously Toei. Step. It. Up. :(
Why is it so hard to get the faces right for some of the least changed characters? Luffy didn't change and yet his face is off-model. Nami only has longer hair, but that too gets off-model. Usopp's expressions, nose and all, even look messed up. In comparison, Franky looks just fine, and he actually changed. Wtf, wtf, wtf.
I didnt like how they handled the haki blast and terrible animation :|
C`mon Toei, at least add the last 2 pages.
I don't understand why they didn't end where the actual chapter ends. It's a scene that fits WAAAY better at the end of an episode than in the beginning of one, and it would take like 1 minute of time, max, to show.
Also, I'm expecting the next 15 episodes or so to be full of fight-filler like we got with Hody vs Zoro.
Not sure if anybody noticed, but we got the Robin eyecatcher this episode.Spoiler:
All that's left is Usopp's and they'll be complete. Still wondering why they keep using the One Piece Logo though.
Oh God. It took forever for something to actually happen. Though the haki blast coulda been better, maybe more like when Rayleigh did it back in the auction house....
Not one of the best episodes; that much is clear.
Talking about the art is redundant since you guys mentioned everything of importance already (though I have to say that I miss the art of the old days- Skypiea for example). Since the art was bad everything else also felt kind of shallow and boring. The Haki blast for example felt really weak compared to the manga. It could've been made way more badass and impressive but whatever. What's done is done.
At this point I'm just hoping that it gets better again- constantly, that is- at some point in the future. Starting with the next arc for example.
I actually enjoyed this episode and thought it was better than last week. Luffy taking a minute to get out of Megalo + Zoro walking like a dumbass were worse than Luffy pushing Zoro and Sanji.
I thought the filler they added was decent and did not take too long considering how short the chapter.
As always, the manga > anime.
I only recall one very meh art during the episode.
that animated haki blast was a real let-down after waiting to see it all this time.
also, luffy pushing zoro and sanji was 'out-of-character' for luffy. he was genuinely pissed off at hody's declaration!
CGIanimeThese kinda don't mix together all that often.Not that this episode wasn't atrociously animated,mind you,but when I think of how CGI looks often in anime,"quality" doesn't really come to mind.quality
