I have to say, your review of Shinjuku Swan made me greatly interested in the series. Your blog posts on One Piece are stupendously detailed and garner nothing but respect from me.

Just came here to say that I enjoy reading your "high effort" One Piece comments. Keep going bro!

Happy New Year!

Ah, I see. Well I suggest starting the ova you were at again, I don't think you'll regret it, there's a lot of unexpected plot twists I think you'll enjoy.

Why you got Saint Seiya on hold? I loved reading your comments about every ep and then suddenly they stopped :(

Oh yeh I loved when they all reunited, it was such a memorable moment T_T

Hey! Sorry I didn't reply, life got real busy again xD I just wanted to drop by and say keep on with watching One Piece - Fishman Island I found was a little tedious (no spoilers obviously) - If you feel like that just stick with it, because the arc afterwards is in my opinion one of the best! I wont spoil it for you because I'd love for you to see what I mean when you get to it! I'm only halfway through and I'm loving One Piece again!

Also I went to the anime con a few days ago and found some great things. The bargain bins were definitely a hit like you said! I managed to find a Roronoa Zoro figure which I bought haha!

Aw man that’s awesome! I felt the exact same when I finally got there!!

Wow that sounds so amazing, I managed to book tickets so I am officially going to an anime con at the end of June!!!! Holy crap I can’t wait!!!! I’m really hoping to pick up some one piece merch, maybe the next few books in the series that I need to get. What manga do you have the most volumes of?
Roronoadawn Jun 11, 2019 12:56 PM
I found an anime con at the end of June and it looks like I'll be going to that! :D What kind of things can I expect? I'm hoping there will be lots of things to spend money on!
Roronoadawn Jun 9, 2019 12:30 PM
Aw that sucks! To be honest, I was at one point reading about a volume a day, I’ve kind of put it in the back burner because of work and stuff, but I need to pick it back up again within the next few days!

Also I will hopefully make one next year, I’ve always wanted to go to one, just because of all the cool merch they have at the events, I imagine it’s like heaven!
Roronoadawn Jun 9, 2019 11:24 AM
How was your anime con? You know I really wish I could go to one of those, they sound and look amazing! Did you manage to get any volumes of One Piece? I’ve got up to volume 36 at the moment, and I’m currently on volume 13. So I’m just about to start the Alabasta arc I believe, and then after that it’s the dreaded Skypiea! I really don’t want to read through that arc but I guess I have to! Keep me updated if you carry on reading!

You're welcome, and sorry for such a late response! MAL's mobile version is really weird about sending me notifications :,D

I don't remember which exact episode it was on, but one of your One Piece episode reviews really struck me. You were capitalizing on the fact that many people don't really appreciate One Piece's greatest strength, or even know what it is. And ever since I read that I've started trying to figure out that answer for myself, since my sudden enthusiasm for the show is a bit of a personal enigma. When I watched it ten years ago, I couldn't stand the characters or plot and quickly dropped it, but rewatching it now I can't seem to stop.

I'm not certain whether this is 100% the case, but I think part of the reason One Piece seems so invigorating now is because the allure of anime tropes and shonen archetypes have slowly been losing their charm for me. While Naruto and Dragon Ball will always be the original MVPs of shonen for me, and I wasted many long hours watching Fairy Tail, certain personalities and decisions become predictable since characters always stay within their characteristic tropes, and we know the heroes will never give up since "protagonist power" will always come up on top. And while One Piece certainly falls guilty to some of these, it is how they use the different strengths and weaknesses of characters that shows a uniqueness which is quite refreshing. For example, while Sakura is often placed in situations of powerlessness and thus believed to be useless, Usopp, Nami, and the other characters are given both good and bad situations to deal with. While Usopp wasn't able to do anything against the Franky pirates, he proved his strength while fighting Spandam and the other marines during the Water 7 arc.

I guess the general point I'm aiming for, is that while we know the main cast in One Piece don't die, we can never truly expect just how they'll handle a situation. With all of the characters aiming for different things, and having their own motivations besides "assist the protag," it lends an area of intrigue to their decisions, words, and overall interactions with other people and things; which keeps them feeling real and interesting.

Sorry I haven't been that active on MAL for a while, I totally forgot to reply! I agree about the placement of the backstories, I think the story itself is told so much better in the manga than in the anime. I haven't had much time to read either lately, I need to make some time I think!

I've just purchased the books for the Skypeia arc which I don't really look forward to reading because in my opinion, it was the weakest arc. I can't wait to go back to Alabasta, what a story that was!
