If you have any other genre's besides shonen, let me know. Its kind of hard to tell what your real interests are, your list kind of screams shonen so i figure that is what you like the most.

I watch alot of stuff man. I been a fan for quite some time. I like all particular types of genre's and i am honestly more of an old school fan as opposed to alot of the newer stuff today. I really hate how the medium is over saturated with CGI now a days, it just really ruins the more organic style of what anime used to be represented as. In any case one of my favorite genre's specifically more modern anime is slice of life. I think that one genre that has really excelled alot over the last several years. But hey if your looking for anything in paticular just let me know and ill see if i can recommend some stuff that blow your socks off.

In any case looking at your list, i can see that you are for sure a huge shonen fan so i would recommend Full metal Alchemist Brotherhood. That is one pretty great shonen series you don't have on your list.

Well thats a wrap! Thus finally ends whole cake island. They closed it out with an "opera" literally lol. Such a great amazing episode. But when you look back at the arc as a whole, this one is probably best read in the manga aside from the musicals which i think the studio did an amazing job at. I didn't realize how dragged out this arc really was but 96 freaken episodes??? Holy SHIT!! That is damn near almost as large as dressrosa but yet that arc was 100 chapter in the manga. This arc was only 78 chapters. Yet the anime some how ended up being longer then the manga arc. That is crazy. This type of ratio almost never happens. It is usually the anime has less episodes then the manga obviously.

So like for dressrosa for example, you can expect about 80-90 episodes to adapt a 100 chapter manga, but for WCI it really should have be something like 60+ episodes in the anime, but yet it was 96! you see what im getting at. That arc was stretched to the absolute max. No wonder people complained about the pacing so much.

In any case as i said before, they are taking a 3/in half month break before wano starts so thats a good thing.

I like alot of different anime's. Lately i been binge watching alot of classics though coupled with the remakes. Not sure if your a big fan of space opera/scifi as i am? Or super sentai/mecha. I am currently watching Combatler the first of tadao's nagahama romance super sentei trilogy. Then ill be watching Voltron including the remake on Netflix and finally head towards zambot which is the first anime directed by tomino. But in any case that is my schedule as of now.

Combatler is pretty good and it has a more structured story but its really going to have to impress me to surpass the likes of yamato. Even though yamato has a lot of inconsistencies and weird 70's cheese that would no way fly by today's standards, it was still such an amazing and almost ambient construction of space opera and I can see why its so damn iconic. I mean back in those days when people were watching most children's stuff, yamato was a god send to these kids who finally got a chance to see what the medium is really all bout and how this one series which influenced the scifi pop cultural space genre for years to come such as star wars and many other scifi works went on to influence the whole of anime's space opera and to that extent more adult themed anime series. It is just unprecedented when you think of it that way.

In fact the early inception of tomino's first work zambot. He mentioned that it was heavily influenced by gatchaman for its super robots and space battleship yamato for its more space opera genre, combined the two together and that is literally what zambot was. He completely pioneer the real robot mecha genre with zambot, which eventually became mobile suit gundam.

It is a perfect representation of scifi-space opera from its early inception and all of the continuity or inconsistencies conveyed in the original are absolutely repaired beyond recognition and the remake fixes all the classic 70's cheesy stuff. Although as an iconic classic show, it was good, but the remake takes it to an entirely different level. The studio even threw in an episode about what defines the conscious minds between robots and humans from early works of Isaac Asimov which was the inspirational blu-prints of Ghost in the shell. This was just one of many added touches that was pretty profound. There is more prominent military space wars with smarter tactical space espionage then what was shown in the classic 70's. There is also more personality and dynamics to the characters and a more logical story line with less dues ex ma-china errors. It may not be deeply involved in political warfare like LOGH or code geass or have large unprecedented scale space battles that go on for episodes but for what it is trying to represent as more of an adventure space drama series, it certainly does it very well and that is one of the series i rated a 10/10 just recently. I rarely ever give off those ratings.

Especially for something like shonen where there is so much typical tropes used and generic writing, contradictions and frequent unexplained directions of a story that ends up being inconsistent in the long run. One piece is one of those rarities that really goes above and beyond in terms of shonen. I never compare and contrast multiple genre's though, for one piece that rating of 10/10 is given because its one of the best shonen's i have seen but not the best over all anime in existence. It may just be elevated to that though when it finally finishes lol.

Dude i can't get enough of this wano arc man. This shit is so dope!! Love seeing zoro finally being a central part of it to. There is really alot of thought out material in this arc, i feel like this arc could be an entire series the way its written. Its clear he has been planning it for so long.

Man One piece!! No other shonen compares and i mean that!!!

Well got news for you. First of all as your aware, the WCI island arc officially ends this week in the anime series, this Saturday will be the last episode. The reverie arc will then commence on March 31st. The wano arc is schedule to begin in "JULY. This is a VERY good thing because now the anime can focus on creating some original material or filler or even cover stories that will provide a decent enough gap from the manga. So by the time wano arc starts in July (literally 3 in a half months later approx), the pacing will not suffer as much as the WCI arc did. Also in August the new film is set to release as well.

Additionally the manga will be entering a major event this summer as well that has been teased for so long and we will be returning to the reverie. So summer is going to be a very important time for one piece, for both anime and manga fans.

Yeah one piece is just amazing. I just can't get over how awesome this shonen is. So much diversity, so much creativity in the world that oda establishes and the story and writting is just so carefully crafted with lots of references and inspiration from alot of films, and other shows. I am going to be sad if the series reaches a climax soon because i can honsetly continue this journey for ever lol. People are speculated that Wano > elbaf will be the last area's of the NW before the story reaches the one piece.

But i don't think that is true, there is so much still to unravel in the world and i don't believe two area's would do it justice so i really hope that the NW has quite a few more area's to explore before the journey comes to an end. We still have to see many of the locations that are in shanks territory, let alone black beard and what he controls as well.

How ever i do think we are reaching a climax with the big mom and Kaido emperors. So this next upcoming war will be just that, a huge conflict against these two monsters. I don't believe shanks or BB will be involved, i could be wrong. It is still to early to tell but there is alot of things even introduced in wano that even elavates the story to even greater levels so its exciting.

Last but not least, here is a 20th anniversary video showcasing all the arcs and that the story is finally reached wano. Kind of interseting i guess.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4b2YjVWgqo

If you pause it at the end there is two frames that show a very small tease of wano
link9us Mar 14, 6:20 AM
The new film is this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f3_oA0uwY0

Here is the teaser trailer as well, the ending is like wtf?? lol

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yS9qIlJrLIE

The thing is that oda asked the studio "Are you planning on ending one piece?" as kind of a joke, because he mentioned that the stakes for this paticular film are set so high, its almost as if its the ending of the story. So its interseting to note that its probably going to be one of the most intense one piece films we have seen yet.

He also said "I wouldn't let them make a film like this unless it had 20th anniversary in the title" signifying how immportant it is.
link9us Mar 14, 6:09 AM
oops wrong link, try this one

Oh and about acts, you will see when you get to wano. Its pretty interesting.

Believe it or not this unbeliable cliffhanger left everyone in shock, those of course who don't read the manga think the sunny is gone gone lol
link9us Mar 14, 5:42 AM
Oh almost forgot. The anime is going to be entering the next arc in just 2 more episodes. So there is only 2 episodes left of the whole cake island arc. So im really excited to see the Reverie in the anime. Although i hope the anime actually goes into filler after reverie, because wano will suffer tremendiously in pacing if they start that arc right now.

In the manga were actually only on act #2 of the wano arc. Probably will be 5 acts alltogether.
link9us Mar 14, 5:28 AM
Hey yeah, long time no see. One piece has just been amazing. The video game, along with the new film and where the manga is heading are all hints that the story is building towards something huge.

The manga has finallyl reached the wano arc and the writing is so cleverly crafted with lots of world building japanese historical references, mythology that it could stand on its own as an entirely new series. It is clear that oda has been planning this one for a very long time. This is like the Japan of one piece arc based on its setting and everything. its really great.
link9us Jun 26, 2018 9:53 PM
Al thought i am excited about these current proceedings, i still hope that the other YONKO don't get shunned to much. I still want the threat level of these characters like Blackbeard and kaido to be a huge plot point in the story. Something on the same caliber as WB or maybe greater. I was a bit disappointed in how oda treated Big mom, but i think that arc specifically it wasn't time to see her at her absolute best. I believe oda is waiting for an opportune time to really showcase big mom in its full glory.
link9us Jun 26, 2018 4:45 PM
yeah and "ROCKS" who supposedly is such a threat that it was indicated that if they ever came into power again, then the world government wouldn't be able to stop them. So yeah the stakes have never been this high in one piece before and its like the YONKO which were currently for a very long time the dominant super powers in the world of one piece are now looked as not necessarily the "largest game" anymore and i have to admit, this gets me so excited to see what the future of OP has in store.

I don't believe oda is going to replicate naruto with some sort of eye power. I think is just something that naruto fans are grabbing onto because they can, same way people think when zoro opens his eye, he will be able to cast some kind of genjutsu lol. Yeah right. Just let oda do his thing. Either way we only got 3 more days left and then i think the next chapter may finally reveal Imu-sama's identity.
