    I love the fact that the best
    character in Bakuman is based
    on Eiichiro Oda
     

    3 Gripes You Have With One Piece?

    I thought it was time to also criticize my favs at times so I made one of these for 4 of my fav manga that have their own sections on the base, check them out

    the 3 biggest gripes I have with One Piece

    1. Haki consistency: while we can see that Haki was planned since the early stages of OP we can also see that Oda didn't know how to visually present it, even at MF the concept of Haki was still not complete. At MF there was no visual presentation of armament haki (black hand), therefore everyone at MF seems to have inferior haki to everyone who shows haki after the TS when the black armament made it's entry, so now even even if we saw the Admirals and WB fight the visually most impressive Haki feat belongs to Vergo even if logically it shouldn't be (and most likely isn't) so.

    2. There are some sections in the manga that I simply don't care about, most recent of which are the chapters with the Colosseum fodder, even if those characters are now in the meat of the story I still stand by my original opinion of those chapters (they are boring as f and waaaaaay too long), those side-characters could have been introduced faster and it should have been made clearer that they will be important, and there are a few more examples throughout the manga.

    3. The anime: Toei in no way does justice to Oda's work, they know that OP will rain in the money no matter what they do with the anime, they are riding on Oda's success and missing the opportunity to make what would very likely be the best anime ever. The anime as a whole is still good due to the story and the VAs but the animation, pacing and sometimes art are just poor.

    what are the 3 biggest gripes you have with OP?

    1- The anime

    2- The fanservice

    3- Zoro's sense of direction but whatever.

    Re: 3 Gripes You Have With One Piece?

    1. Too many transitions after the timeskip. Oda has been dropping cliffhanger after cliffhanger, and while it's good writing, I'd like it if he slowed his pace a bit and focused on one part for a little bit, whether it be Franky at the factory, Law and Doffy's flashback, or Rebecca and Robin's group.

    2. Animation of the episodes. I can't quite explain it, but the animation just isn't something I enjoy anymore. Look at the scene where Law is dodging Doffy's attacks, it was just horrible to watch.

    I can't think of a third one right now.

    Re: 3 Gripes You Have With One Piece?

    1- Not consistent, some times the arcs are awesome, other times are freacking boring

    2- The pacing, I think that the number of chapters and only being in half explains it

    3- The anotomy, I'm sorry but I just can't pass through it, I mean how the **** can Big Mom fight?

    - What happened to the Grand Line?

    - Too many chars like DF

    When you feel like you hate
    your life,, its only because
    your stuck in someone elses
    flow. You must first go with
    the flow if ever you ever wish
    for things to get better. Go
    with the flow=acceptance.
     

    Re: 3 Gripes You Have With One Piece?

    1-The anime

    2-The pacing

    3-One Piece being too good

    If you belonged to a political
    party or a social club that
    was tied to as much bigotry,
    misogyny, homophobia,
    violence, and sheer ignorance
    as religion is, you'd resign
    in protest.

    Re: 3 Gripes You Have With One Piece?

    1. I actually think that Oda didn't really planned Haki from the beginning and to me it seems that he written himself into a corner with Logias, so he made out Haki, so that characters can hit them. Haki just saved a lot of work for Oda, and it would be really hard to find bad match ups for Logias (Enel vs Luffy).

    2. Art style could be better.

    3. Some arcs could be shorter and some don't even need to be written (Foxy arc).

    Re: 3 Gripes You Have With One Piece?

    anime fight scene fillers: prolonging the fights in anime makes the opponents seem waaaaayyy stronger than they should be like Hordy, Ceaser. it makes the strawhats look weaker than they really are.

    only thing that really bothers me and makes me hate the anime.

    Nope, it's very clear that Oda had Haki planned from the beginning.

    Re: 3 Gripes You Have With One Piece?

    1. Animation and the art style-Too be honest OP looks more like a crappy american action cartoon than a anime.

    2. The pacing-very inconsistent and often frustrating.

    3. No end on sight-It just feels like the story is just being dragged on.

    Re: 3 Gripes You Have With One Piece?

    1/ The characters.

    They are too simple, and don't evolve past their generic and gimmicky personalities. Lack of character development, being static for more than half of the manga. Lacking depth and dimension in personalities, etc

    2/ The action.

    Complete lack of strategy. Lame ass powers, childish, etc.

    3/ The slow pace, and progression.

    The manga as a whole is pretty average, which is why I dropped it.

    Re: 3 Gripes You Have With One Piece?

    Inconsistency at some points

    I would prefer if the art style is much better but I like it this way since it is resembling more of a pirates

    Sometimes I felt like arcs are dragging but I am ok with that


    Animation is ok for me or to say it is better than some of them I watch

    This coming from a guy who did his best to try and argue against the 3 gripes I had with Naruto, and the gripes he lists for OP are the characters and powers

    In the 4 threads I made, you are the only one that got offended (in the Naruto one) and than came a bashin'
