One Piece SBS 82: Worst Generation Hobbies

One Piece SBS 82: The Hobbies of the Worst Generation Pirates

I’m a moderator at Oro Jackson, the best One Piece Community around, and I wanted to share an SBS that my buddies Micchan and Divvens helped provide to the community. You can find the entire translated SBS here: http://orojackson.com/threads/one-piece-volume-82-sbs.29444/ 

I’m going to be selective here and talk about the page that reveals the hobbies of the Worst Generation, and the ones I want to note here are Law’s, Drake’s, Urouge’s, and Blackbeard’s. I mean… wow. I wasn’t expecting some of these! 

Trafalgar D. Water Law’s Hobbies

Oda says that Law’s hobbies are vagrancy and collecting commemorative coins. These… are strange hobbies for Law, frankly. I wasn’t expecting this. I mean, WTF VAGRANCY?! Where does that even come from?! How do you make homelessness a hobby? How? What thrills does he get from it? I hope we see this in the manga some time cos I think it’s hilarious as hell.

One Piece Feature: Kaido’s Drunk Personas

One Piece Scandal: Kaido Gets Drunk

Well, leave it to Oda to give a beastly character like Kaido a bunch of hilarious quirks, which are oddly quite fitting for him. In One Piece Chapter 824 (“Little Pirate Games”), Kaido reveals that he’s got multiple personalities when he’s been sippin’ too much sake…

Drunk Personality #1: The Sentimental Drunk

So… here we have Kaido crying over the fact that he can’t have an all-Devil-Fruit crew because Joker’s been taken out. I mean, this guy is bawling here, and I’m pretty sure the sake has tickled his tear ducts and got him crying in such a state. It’s quite funny that Kaido’s getting emotional over his unrealized “dream” of having a complete Devil Fruit User crew xD I think it kinda shows a childish side to him. I also love reading his men’s thoughts. “I guess today he’s being a sentimental drunk.” That indicates they know all his drunk “sides” and can tell when he’s in one of these moods xD It’s amusing.

One Piece: Kaido’s Reveal!

I’m totally late to the party, but I’m so ready to talk about one of the Yonko in One Piece! First off, I wasn’t expecting Kaido to be revealed so soon. And so epically. But, hey, we’re talking about Oda here, and he has surprised me and many other OP fans countless times. Let me reiterate what Oda said about Kaido here:

“The man was looking for a place to die… And, if I were to tell you about him, he is a pirate that has tasted defeat 7 times and has been captured by the navy and his enemies over 18 times! A man that has lived through countless torture and was a fugitive on the run… Now, he attempts to take his own life… in a way that is still rather rare in his own world… suicide by jumping from Sorajima…

And, now… Let me tell you once more: A man that has been captured all sorts 18 times and survived 10,000 kinds of torture. Having the death sentence handed to him 40 times. But every time he was to be hung, the rope snapped on him. And, even as he is put under the guillotine, the blade mysteriously breaks into pieces… Spears break when he is stabbed, and he has sunk at least 9 gigantic prison ships the whole time he was there. 

What I’m trying to say is… Nobody… could kill this man!!! And he himself… find it amusing that to the point that suicide is a hobby! 

The man’s name is…

KAIDO THE BEAST

People always said, if you wanted to pick a fight, do it with Kaido… Because among all the living, be it land, sea or air… He’s said to be the strongest pirate alive!!”

Hello, world, please meet Kaido, the man who will destroy you if you wear your feather cape in an unacceptable manner:

What I’ll be discussing in this post:

  1. Kaido’s Reveal – OMG WTF HOLY I CAN’T EVEN WHAT IS HEY WOW NICE TAT WHOA WHO ARE YOU – And Why He Can’t Die?
  2. Kaido’s Declaration of War (And Sayonara Kid Alliance…! Still Love Ya, Just Don’t Tell Kaido Cos I Kinda Love Him, Too)
  3. Little. Pirate. Games. 
  4. His Connection to Wano Kuni – No, It’s Not Because He Loves Sake. He Loves Oden… (Too Soon?)

One Piece Talk: Akainu Isn’t Evil!

Akainu
Look at that smug face…

Main Points Discussed in This Post:

1. Why Akainu Isn’t to Blame for Ace’s Death

2. Why People Love Luffy and See Him as the Good Guy in One Piece

3. Why Akainu Really Isn’t the Bad Guy

—————————————————————————————————

YEAH, I SAID IT.

The one who killed Ace.

The magma brat who seriously injured Whitebeard.

The Red Dog of the Marines.

YEAH, HE AIN’T EVIL!

You know, I used to think he was totally bad and evil and rawr, but really… Akainu isn’t. You can’t blame him for Ace’s death. Ace chose to die to protect his brother, and Akainu knew that, so he aimed for Luffy. Objectively speaking, yeah, messing with your opponent’s mind and emotions is one way to defeat them. So he used that as his tactic.

There’s no reason to blame Akainu for Ace’s death because he had zero feelings for Ace. For instance, would you protect someone who was a complete stranger to you? I wouldn’t because I’d rather use my life to protect someone I loved and cared for. I don’t blame Akainu for what he did. It was his job as an Admiral to go through with Ace’s execution. As we One Piece fans know, Akainu gets shit done. He doesn’t fuck around with emotions or anything; if he did, don’t think he would have done a lot of things during the Marineford Arc.

One Piece 800 Review! The Straw Hat Grand Fleet

Want to discuss One Piece Chapter 800? Join Oro Jackson today! Stop by and say hi to me, Nekomori 🙂 You can also check out the prediction contest for One Piece Chapter 801 at Oro Jackson and get a chance to earn Bounty Points!

Lately, I haven’t been up for blogging. It’s been about a month now, I believe, since my last post. But, and I know I said this before, I’ll be more active because I have a lot of new plans that I’m working on, which includes this blog. I’m excited!

To kick off my activity, let’s do a review for One Piece Chapter 800. It’s the big 800, guys! Only 200 more chapters until we reach 1,000, and that’s a huge milestone. I wouldn’t be surprised if One Piece went to 3,000 chapters xD Also, I can’t help but think of Akainu because of the chapter title bwahaha

Anyway… after the grand fight between the Donquixote family and the Colosseum warriors and between Doffy and Luffy, everyone is grateful to Luffy; even the citizens of Dressrosa want to help him out 😀 Well… of course, Luffy being Luffy, he’s refused the offer of being the captain of the grand fleet. Naturally, he’s let them know that they’re his allies and vice versa! That’s more like it. I’m glad Luffy didn’t accept being a captain to them all xD That’d just be chaotic. Much better having them as allies. Plus, I really don’t think they’d all be the type to be subordinates…

One Piece 795: Suicide

One Piece 795 Chapter Review!

Discuss One Piece Chapter 795 at Oro Jackson! Come say hi to me, Nekomori 🙂

Yes, yes, I know, it’s been a while. Things happened here and there, but today is a special day. Why? Because, if you read the chapter today, then I don’t need to give you a why. I’m making time today to write a review on possibly the best chapter this year so far. Sorry, Gear Fourth chapter.

So much has happened so far. Doffy’s been defeated, the Kid alliance is going after Shanks (well, about that… dunno if it’s happening after this chapter!), things are getting heated between the marines and Gorosei (shoutout to Akainu, you birthday candle lighter), and so much more.

But… I gotta say, this chapter took the fucking cake and pie! First, we finally get to see the Sunny Team! I’m so, so relieved they’re doing okay. They’re actually doing more than okay since there was some comedy scenes in there, even though they were in a bind. So, I’m pretty sure they just landed on an island that belongs to Kaido, since we see a sheep dude wearing Kaido’s Jolly Rogerl:

One Piece 776: The Colisseum’s Hero

One Piece 776 Review!

Discuss One Piece 776 at Oro Jackson!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything… but I’m hoping to get more time soon to spend on this blog. I’ve been reading so many new manga series, guys, and I want to talk about them on here. 😀 So I’ll be back for more blogging. But, for now, let’s focus on this One Piece review. FINALLY WE GET A CHAPTER! Oh, I’ve missed you. Like a drug, One Piece makes me happy on Thursday mornings. No, it really is a drug… and I don’t need help, so don’t intervene! ahahaha

All right. I was hoping for Zoro vs. Pica, but we got Kyros vs. Diamante instead. That’s fine, since I think Zoro’s fight against Pica is the second most important fight right now, and Luffy’s fight against Doffy is the first. So we’ll see him later. ;-; ZOROOO!!! I kinda miss seeing him.

Anyway, let’s move on. Kyros vs. Diamante. Overall, great chapter. I love seeing Kyros, who used to be a “beast,” be such a good father figure to Rebecca. He said great, inspiring lines, and you can tell he’s so damn proud of his daughter, especially for keeping her promise to her mother: to not hurt anyone. But he also has a lot of regret, so he’s fighting this battle himself.

One Piece 775: To Lucien/Lucy Anne, With Love

One Piece 775 Review!

Discuss One Piece 775 at Oro Jackson!

Franky vs. Senor Pink, people… FRANKY VS. SENOR PINK!!! Finally, this damn fight has happened and come to a conclusion. Of course, I knew Franky would win, but I didn’t expect Senor Pink’s past to come up. I really want to learn more about his character and see him more in the future. I don’t think we’re done with Senor Pink yet.

The chapter starts out with Leo, Mancherie, and Kabu-san leaving the palace. Mancherie’s adorable as usual, and Leo’s just as dense. Kabu-san is quite sharp, but I wonder if things will develop for Leo and Mancherie lol

Also… Mancherie’s powers seem to be very useful, similar to the Ope-Ope No Mi. It can restore things, apparently, and I’m not sure if Jora meant that Mancherie’s healing powers can restore people? Revive them? Well, from MangaPanda’s version, it’s pretty unclear, so I’ll wait for another translation to get out. But I’m thinking that Mancherie’s powers can do quite a lot, perhaps even more than Law’s abilities. No wonder Doffy wants the power for himself. Such a damn opportunist!

One Piece 774: Leo, the Tontatta Troop Leader

One Piece 774 Review!

Discuss One Piece 774 here at Oro Jackson!

Ah… this chapter… well, it was expected to come at some point, right? The rescue of the Tontatta princess, Mancherie.

I’m going to get weird looks for this, but I think it was sorta cute seeing Wadatsumi crying like a kid hahaha Though he looks like an old man… But I’m curious on what those houses were he pulled from! Jinbei, what are you doing?! Don’t scold him! Find out where he got those houses! I really want to solve that damn mystery already.

Anyway… chapter started out with Diamante, Robin, Rebecca, and Kyros. Kyros looks like he was holding back a lot because of Rebecca, but now he’s reached his “anger limit” and is ready to attack. Definitely looking forward to this fight even more. Too bad it’s going to be  saved for later, but oh well. I like how Oda’s organizing all these fights.

One Piece 773 Review!

Discuss One Piece Chapter 773 at Oro Jackson.

FINALLY! One Piece is back on schedule. 😀 I’ve really missed it, and this week’s chapter was fabulousss! Let’s get on with the review.

Cover Page Talk:

One question: What are those houses doing at the bottom of sea?! Atlantis reference here? :O I’m actually interested in this cover page story.

I fucking love Bartolomeo. He’s just a riot!

One-Piece-773-Bartolomeo-FunnyBartolomeo is the ultimate fanboy! As Hakuba tries to attack Robin (and failed), he’s all like, “Don’t hurt Robin-senpaaaiiii!!!” ahaha I seriously love this guy. But Robin… WOW, she’s starting to shine more, and I can’t wait for the next chapter already. She stopped Hakuba with her DF abilities, and that’s incredible.
