    I have been sleepy as all hell so not been majorly active but I want to support Apoo, considering I'm the one who nominated him?
    And I don't want a 1 point off of drawing/getting into the main round (neither do I want a colossal loss)
    But I'm very tired what do I do.
    Instilling my inner Beka just won't do especially considering how close it was before.

    Sorry, Ugly, I missed replying to this since I was sleeping. It was something I wanted to answer though so am doing so here.

    But, I still wait for some Usopp's backstory, his current one is pretty meh, just like Zoro's one. But yeah, Oda did a great job with Usopp's character evolution, he is getting stronger but he continued being funny and the light part of the crew.
    Huh... I wouldn't say its meh, when you look at the full thing, Usopp has a sad back story. Its sadder than Zoro's. Only Chopper & Robin beat him.
    Yes, Nami's was sad, but she still had her sister and the villagers to look after her, to love her. While she wasn't aware of all of the village looking after her she was aware of Ganzo and Dr. Nako looking after her.

    Usopp had no one, no family and near to no friends. Kaya only came into the picture about 1 year before he met Luffy.

    This comic strip by shejov does a decent job showing Usopp's backstory. this is my review to it=
    "I like it...
    Though you're right about around what time he met Kaya. He met the boys much earlier. In ch. 40 it was revealed that Usopp met the boys of Usopp's Pirates 5 years prior. Since Usopp was 17 and they were only 9 at the time, that means he met the boys when he was 12 and they were only 4 years old.
    That doesn't make much difference in your tribute though since he -at nearing teenhood- had to be pretty lonely to befriend toddlers. Most kids at 10-13 don't like playing with only 4 yr olds.

    I agree it was a lot of Usopp's insecurity about himself there in the fight with Luffy over Merry, he merely used the ship as a cover for himself. Though it really did land a blow to Usopp in the argument before the fight that Luffy basically said that if Usopp felt that way then he can leave the crew. Nami scolds him and Luffy takes it back but the damage is done ... Luffy had (unintentionally) confirmed Usopp's fears of being left behind by telling him to leave the crew in fit of anger.

    Both were wrong in that dispute, Usopp should have talked about his insecurity instead of projecting it onto a broken ship, and Luffy shouldn't have said that. While they reconciled, only Usopp apologized for what was said and done. At least I don't remember Luffy ever saying he was sorry for saying that to Usopp. If someone knows if he did, please reply with the chapter number in it happened. "

    I would Nami backstory is sadder than Usopp and Luffy was wrong in the argument they had about the boat(also the same for Zoro).

    Don't mess with the Law if you don't have an Ace up your sleeve.

    WOW, what a tearjerker "behind the fame" story, it showed facts that usually is perceived by a few dozen of people, great story.
    I guess that, since this was the beginning of One Piece, Oda didn't knew how to make detailed stories like he did with Robin, Nami or Luffy he had to use subjective hints.


    Overall, Usopp is a great character.

    It's not that Oda didn't know how, its just that he was still on a 5 year plan and didn't know that the series would be successful enough that he could take his time.

    Most mangas start with very short early stories and plow through a whole mess of arcs in their first two years before slowly growing in length.

    There's plenty of time to expand on Usopp's story.
    After all his dad, Yasopp, is on Shanks' crew and sometime near/ or at the end, Strawhats will meet the Redhair Pirates. Also there is some sort of strife between Yasopp and Vista of Whitebeard Pirates. They were seen glaring at each other at end of the war and ODa confirmed in a SBS that there was something , though he didn't say what.
    Lets remember that Nekomamushi is looking for Marco so the remaining of that crew could join the alliance, so we may see Vista sooner than Yasopp.

    I still wanted to read that little side plot for Usopp in Loguetown, is a shame that was cut due to time.

    Wasn't it printed in a book? I read about that, something about a novel about Lougtown but I've never been able to find out if that's true.

    That one wasn't the only time a side plot concerning Usopp was cut out.
    Also was the time in Water 7, Usopp crosses paths with Garp and they talk. It was going to reveal that Garp recognizes Usopp as the son of Yasopp and during the talk he tells Usopp that Yasopp is still alive and still part of Shanks' crew.
    Like the timing of Lougetown where Usopp's encounter with Daddy Masterson was cut out, the encounter with Garp was cut out due to timing,

    Aggressive campaigns count for alot. Norland won in 2013 basically on the back of his campaigners, and its what elevates the relatively minor side characters into the big leagues.
