Heenan is the Bret Hart/Shawn Michaels of managers. Nobody's even close to his awesomeness.

This era is fucking gold dude.

2025 looks hilarious but seems realistic haha. I just wish something could be done about Toei's pacing.

Bet he's feeling it at this point. I saw he had some press and public over recently showing off his house, but he had his face censored to being Luffy haha. Guess he's been a bit more secretive over the years, can't blame him there.

Hard to take anyone seriously in interviews like this but that's an interesting note about the end goal bit. The journey IS the series and what we love but with how elaborate everything is fleshed out, yeah an ending like that would feel like a cop out probably. It just remains to be seen if everyone can even survive the end. lol

I've heard the rumors and Honky Tonk talking about that. Dunno what to think nor if I really care, he's long gone...

Just stumbled upon this Curt Hennig interview on his death:

Sad with Gene. He still had it until the very end. Weird timing with me jumping back on the network too. From 1988 WWF to 1999 WCW the man was there and was the best interviewer.

On another note, I'm loving Rick Rude.

I'm not saying I don't like Franky, he just seems kind of low tier to me at this point. Always fun to have around but I don't know if I can think of many standout solo moments of him outside of the cool W7/EL part where he got a lot of focus. Some fun moments in Thriller Bark with the first signs of mecha jokes. Other than that I don't know dude. The gap between the Straw Hats and how some rank is only getting wider to me right now. Maybe nobody will drop to Yamucha levels... but Brook is close. I'll just say he's had some great moments recently too though.

"I imagine you exaggerating about episode titles appearing at the end of the ep"

Oh I don't mean the actual episode title splash screen not popping up until the end, I mean whatever the title is, that event often starts to finally happen only within the last minute of an episode. "Is X dead!?" etc that's an exaggerated example but yeah, you'll finally get some answers or see the developments of said episode-title near the very end of it, lmfao. It's hilarious when it happens so frequently. Like that example of the Viola episode you mentioned, maybe that one was called "Doflammingo's ultimate gambit!" but you have to sit through ~15 minutes of her explaining all those other characters and other events until the Doflammingo stuff is merely teased then TO BE CONTINUED! lol.

Rewatching W7/EL was even taxing a bit and I know I skipped some stuff, like that big 10 some episode portion when they recapped the entire series and characters practically. Everyone standing before they burned down the flag. I just don't know how the hell I'm ever going to rewatch this thing. lol, movie recaps are never a good idea either for stuff like this. I watched some of those but think I stopped after the Alabasta one or something.

I think I'm going to need a miracle with Franky. I know you said you like his new look now but I don't ever see myself warming up to it, even with my affinity for mecha and those jokes. I love when he's around Chopper, Usopp, and whatnot, but on his own, I just don't know. I don't think it's just a knock on the look though, I really don't know what to think of him overall at this point.

"I think the saving grace for the pacing is that there has been a lot going on lately so if they want to pad things out then we're not stuck looking at the same thing forever."

I have a hard time picturing that but that's coming out of a bundle of bad pacing ... when it slows to a halt they'll use like an entire episode to focus in on one spot and event, then tickle you with something else at the end and the TO BE CONTINUED. I could almost imagine the next arc would be the most painful weekly, lol. That's another thing I realized about One Piece finally lately as well, I can't think of a single other series that so abrasively slaps that TO BE CONTINUED at your face. It's basically the shounen formula, though nothing but the tiniest teases and biggest cliffhangers with One Piece nowadays. Nothing else quite like it...

"I was fine with with those really long Franky and Zoro fights and the only reason I felt Zoro's fight was bad was because his opponent sucked and was boring. But every time they went back to Franky I was good to go heh."

HOW!?

I really don't like when the episode titles finally happen in the last minute of the episode, which is back to where it was on the last few episodes I left off on. Even watching Dressrosa in two batches for me was still taxing and I'm glad I've got a break on Whole Cake here...

Think Whole Cake is going to be 105 episodes if the 15 episodes left pans out. The transitional arc before this is about 30. Think there's a three episode filler arc somewhere in there that I skipped.

I'm excited for the next stuff but the structure of the arc could be either a blessing or a downside so I'm a little skeptical about it in a way. I think it'll be good though, hopefully. The word is is that it should cover more ground (literally haha) instead of a group of characters being stuck in the same area for huge chunks of time. But I have no idea.

I just still really wonder how Shanks is going to fit into everything.
Echelon Jan 2, 4:04 PM
Can't edit my post anymore but I think Hisoka said it best, it doesn't matter what series it is... any arc that goes over 100 issues is a problem haha. Guess that's my biggest knock on Dressrosa. I'm glad the current arc shouldn't be as long, but I'm a little fearful again about the future arcs in ways.

Oh yeah and Thriller Bark, I really have no issues with that one and dug it a lot outside of Moria. The length and everything seemed just right. I just recall it being a bit low stakes kind of like Skypeia when you look back on it, so it doesn't leave as big of a mark. Not any huge peaks I can remember but nothing bad either. Loved Perona.

I'm glad the growing pains of the time skip seem over now. That's probably hilarious to think since it's technically been years and hundreds of episodes haha, but you probably know what I mean. Character wise all the Straw Hats are in a good groove again.

You and SSJLuffy are in the front row seats on the OP Hype Train haha, so maybe you won't have as many issues here. Who knows. I can't emphasis how amazing some of the new supporting characters are though, no matter how long OP has gone at this point, some of the newbies here are top tier and I hope they continue to be involved down the road.
Echelon Jan 2, 3:54 PM
Still need some time to process it. But I'd probably place it above Thriller Bark and somewhere around there. The peaks certainly blow that one and some others out of the water. But just about all of the action in this arc is very low tier. Outside of Big Mom I can't think of a single person in her crew that has any cool factor. There's at least 2-3 portions where the pacing hits a brick wall like usual with the back half of the series. One thing I was telling SSJLuffy in our spoiler talk is that I love the setting here, along with the setting in the transitional arc where you left off. Definitely some of the coolest settings in the series to me and it's been awhile since we had stuff like these or Skypiea, etc. So I dig that a lot. Some of the good side characters have been incredible in this portion and you get to see a lot of the benched Straw Hats from Dressrosa make up for lost time here, I'm sure you expected that. Maybe like an 8/10? But yeah Hisoka was laughing how at first I was thinking this could beat Dressrosa. Then I caught up and reality sunk in. *laughs* I mean I still think this has some parts I like more and ultimately I don't think this arc will be as long as that one and that's not a bad thing, but man fucking Doflammingo. Nobody can single handedly carry that torch and create that level of tension. Even the stuff ahead is going to have to get freaking serious to rival his intensity.

Ultimately though I don't know if I can think of a perfect arc for One Piece. There's little things I'd change about most of them I think. Alabasta might be the closest but I bet the stakes and things feel pretty tame in retrospect now though haha. But it was the first bigger arc at the time, Crocodile and his awesome crew, Ace, etc, pretty much flawless. I don't think I have any issues with Impel Down and Marineford but it always feels a bit weird to grade those among the rest since it was just Luffy and supporting characters or villains... nothing wrong with that but they were just really different. Love W7/CP9 but I don't like those villains as much as others and the pacing issues kind of cropped up there haha. Loved Skypiea but I guess it is a little forgettable looking back now, outside of Enel and the cool setting.

Fishman has to be hands down the worst man. I frequently forget this arc even exists and that's bad when it's one of the newer ones. lmfao

I need the Kai version of Dressrosa and it'd be perfect.
Echelon Dec 30, 2018 7:46 PM
Hisoka said something similar. Honestly, it's hard to imagine though lmao. The pacing hit a brick wall in the last ~20 episodes or so I watched and was easily the worst part of everything I watched catching up, personally. It feels like a miracle needs to happen for it to somehow finish up in "only" ~15 episodes or whatever.

My thoughts never changed on Big Mom, bottom tier crap to me for sure. I hate her more than Moria but Hisoka still hates him more. So what flavor of poop do you dislike the most? lol
SSJLuffy Dec 30, 2018 4:45 PM
I know you didn't ask me but - the arc is ending soon. I'll guess sometime in early Spring, probably April. Maybe like 12-13 episodes left in the arc if I estimate right. They could really screw the pacing and adapt half chapters though
