Thread: Greg: Teacher of SUPER " OP " course !

    Default Re: Greg: Teacher of SUPER " OP " course !

    Hey Greg, just wanted to let you know I got my subscription back. I had been dealing with Heart and Liver problems in the last year and a half, so I had to focus more about life and such. Since I now have the chance to support Oda(One Piece) and other SJ series, then I'm glad to help.
    Here’s how Naruto should end: Last panel is Naruto standing proudly over Konohagakure. Slowly zoom out to reveal Luffy staring into a snowglobe with a miniature Konoha inside it. Usopp asks him what he’s doing. Luffy replies “Thinkin’ bout ninjas! Ninjas are cool!” and then chucks it off the ship

    First of all, without getting too personal, it's always good to hear that fans are staying happy and healthy. I hope whatever issues you've had, you've gotten the help you needed or that was available.

    Second, I don't want anyone to think people like myself (those trying to get out the word about why it's important to support the legal release) are out there to shame you ****for how you privately enjoy manga****.

    It's one thing to *understand that you are supporting an illegal source and doing it quietly without disturbing others that don't enjoy it that way while keeping your discussion within a community that is non-commercial.

    If one fits the above conditions and leads an unimpeded lifestyle which allows them to support the official source I don't think anyone can blame someone for what they do privately.



    When I point a finger, it's at:

    -Those lying to others and themselves about whether or not they can support the official release.

    -Those who are looked up to by others and have a responsibility to set an example for others.
    -(some like to point a finger at me over this and while I will not discuss how I read OP, I do *not* read OP through scanlations and my commentary on chapters are limited to a tightly-knit and non-advertised, non-commercialized board which does not promote my commentary on chapters before the official release)

    -Those who are profiting from scanlations and putting their own goals or aspirations above those of the author's characters. This is a concept even the authors practice. The stars are the characters, not the people you see on YouTube. In fact, my face used to be plastered all over the One Piece homepage (more than it currently is) but I asked them to reduce it because fans should be visiting the site to enjoy the series, not an advertisement for *me*.

    And when I *do* point a finger, I don't intend that to be like a parent figure nagging, "You shouldn't do that!" Rather I intend it to be something for others to look at, observe and judge on their own standards.

    So if I made you feel insecure I apologize for that.

    I hope you understand I'm not aiming at individuals in your situation, but those who fit the above descriptions.

    Especially if Drake is set up to turn against Kaido. Losing one of the Calamities would be too big of a blow. And this way, there would be plenty of boss figures to go around.
    Sure, and that would be a nice fit.

    I mean, we haven't seen evidence of Drake carrying himself *like* a calamity.

    But then again, maybe that's what Oda wants us to think.

    Whether he is or isn't, I strongly feel that like ALL members of the Supernovas, Drake'll be on Luffy's side when all is said and done.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    If I'd do a "fanimation", where I'd use Moria and/or Mihawk in a OP-parody, just drawing and animating all by myself without using any official stuff from the manga or Anime, would that be OK, if it is non-Profit?
    If your work became popular enough and used licensed sound samplings *and* could be mistaken for the original product....

    Toei might be able to lower a complaint.

    But....if the work is in fact *all* your own (or royalty-free material) and does not claim official affiliation and could not be mistaken for the official product, I strongly believe YouTube would back your claim to originality.

    There is no way Drake is simply going to be a loyal minion of Kaido. I will literally bet to change my avator and/or sig on that notion that he will be at Luffy's side at the end of the arc.

    No I completely understand and agree with your reasoning. Just wanted to shout out my support to One Piece and other SJ series in my own way. I admit I do read the early scans, but I've always made sure to support the series one way or another. I'd also love to spread the word about officially supporting it. Anyways keep up the good work.

    Also, I'm a free man from a health standpoint, so I'm pretty good!
    Here’s how Naruto should end: Last panel is Naruto standing proudly over Konohagakure. Slowly zoom out to reveal Luffy staring into a snowglobe with a miniature Konoha inside it.

    I dont know about Roar of the Sea though, he might try to flip after the situations turn in the strawhats favor and get stomped on or something, I dont want all the supernovas to be there and be "good guys" or at least good like how oda portrayed bege

    Iunno mate.

    If that's what you're hoping for might wanna strap on some 'Disappoint' pants.

    Pretty much everyone is lining up to be sympathetic.

    Bege is devoted to Chiffon who will do her damndest keep him in line. Not to mention, if she's put in danger and the Strawhats rescue her when Bege can't, he's putty in their hands.

    Apoo we have no idea if he's:

    -always been with Kaido
    -flipped at the meeting
    -is trying to save his own skin

    Kidd is in seemingly dire straits (although this could be a plan of his)

    Drake seems like the misunderstood villain who's trying to do right.

    Bonney is...whatever she is.

    Urouge could VERY WELL show up this arc being tied to Mom and such. That's still not impossible.

    Hawkins will follow fate.

    Not much to add than has already been said (because you said it so well), but I share this perspective as well and I think it's an honest--healthy--one for a fan community to cultivate.
    It's difficult to dispute that scans haven't broadened the audience for manga internationally, and I think a lot of publishers have evolved necessarily to meet that passion.
    So now that there are legitimate channels to directly support these works, I hope we can be more honest about where and whether there's a will, since there's a way.

    As always, your conscientiousness (and contributions here & elsewhere) are much appreciated.

    I feel like Drake is an undercover agent for the WG/Marines. Working hard to wash himself from his father's sins. To prove that he's better.

    His father's past could have been used to convince any pirate that he has legit betrayed WG. Plus, he seemed to know more about PX than your average marine.

    Wow, Greg... I didn't even notice that wrapped up top-decoration Piece of the cake and I usually look at and catch such Details. If it is not a usual bride-groom-pair, but sth. special, it could (or should) be Mother Carmel. Though I got no idea how Sanji could made a model of her, cause he can't know how she Looks. Pudding or Chiffon could look at that photo on recent tea parties though.

    And Razh, that Drake = 10 Thing sounds interesting as well. Ginrummy is also a name for some Kind of (Card?-)game. But usually 10 is below Jack. Only (tiny) flaw: Drake had all those nicknames before he joined Kaidou...

    You know, there is another hint, that each SN will (even if not joining the SH-fleet in the end) backstab his/her Yonkou: they all went to MF-Waters after the summit war and most of 'em witnessed how BB killed WB. So, for them, getting rid of Yonkou within the Yonkou’s crew seems to be quite the good strategy (at least for Bege, Drake/Apoo).

    I mean maybe it can be Mother Carmel to help attract her to the cake, but will she even eat it if that's the case?

    Or will eating it and seeing her eat it cause her to remember.

    Hey Gregg sorry if you've already covered this but I am a bit curious what your opinion is on the following subject

    http://kissmanga.com/Manga/One-Piece...61?id=328801#5

    In this panel we see Luffy avoid having his arms chopped off by recognizing it will happen after Mihwaks intense stare shows his intent. From what we know about CoO the stronger the intent to kill is the easier it is to predict the attack so myself and many other readers take this as an example of obersvation haki in the form of Luffy sensing what will happen and then dodging. Others seem extremely adamant that haki has nothing to do with this and it's just Luffy's common sense kicking in. What are your thoughts on this? Is it CoO? Is it a slight look into the future others are saying is foreshadowing to his current battle and attempts to see the future?

    I am not Greg but that scene is another case of Luffy awakening a certain color. CoC is obvious, so no need to cover that, CoA was hinted at by Blackbeard two times regarding Luffy punching, first in Jaya and then when Luffy punched BB himself, saying that Luffy increased his Haki substantially. And that scene with Mihawk was Luffy awakening his CoO.

    Greg I always wanted to ask you about Kaido's title. Some say it isn't as legit as WB's or Mihawk's because it wasn't given to him in an infobox like it was given for the others. Many imply that's Oda on purpose made it that way so that Kaido won't outright be the strongest in the series. What's your take on this ?

    The only thing it *might* indicate is that Oda doesn't count him as ****fully**** revealed yet. I know that sounds ridiculous but when we start applying rules to things that Oda either sometimes forgets or doesn't exactly have a strict policy on, things can get messy. It's an interesting point, to be sure! But I wouldn't put stock in it.

    Thanks for your answer! Well, I'd do it in a style that shouldn't be mistaken for the official product and I know one must be very cautious with sounds. The only sfx I WOULD LIKE to use is that *doooiiinnng* Sound, but I guess it is better to somehow "home-make" it with kitchen-material like spoons and a metal pot.
