There's got to be something more to his power.

The previous holder of law's fruit probably made him immortal

Also, I really enjoyed going through the Dressrosa arc in bulk. The pacing was kinda painful week to week, causing me shelf One Piece for like a year.

This makes a lot of sense, and would also possibly explain a little bit about why Doflamingo knew of the fruit having the ability to do that to begin with. (Then again, he has connections, so meh)

That fruit ability has to be used somehow, it'd be very unlike Oda for him to reveal that Law's DF can do that, only to never address it ever again, so it makes the most sense for us to get to see it used in a flashback. Because let's be real, I highly, highly doubt we'll ever see Law use it in the present day on Luffy, much less anyone else. Immortality/Eternal Youth sounds like something Luffy would never want, and Law isn't close enough to anyone else to do something like that.

Hitman Reborn had an OK anime, but most of it is that shit due to the Future arc.

It belongs on a list of OK shonen adaptations not best or fav animes, lol.

Watch Space Dandy B-leg.

One Piece is weird in that there are a lot of things where you really enjoy them more in bulk versus the slow drip. This current arc is hurting me so badly (not because its bad but because pls give endgame) but I know I just gotta be patient.

Also, Dressrosa is going to be the New World's Alabasta in terms of impressions later down the line, calling it.

I can see that. I loved the arc after binging through it. Pretty much solidified Doffy as my favorite character in the whole series.

I've actually been enjoying Whole Cake Island a lot week to week though. Haven't felt this invested in One Piece in a looooong time, in-fact. I had been anticipating Big Mom and her crew for many years, and they have totally lived up to the hype for me!

Kaido's crew is gonna have to really impress me to compete with Big Mom's family. I can't wait to see the other 2 Calamities. Tons of potential cool factor with them. Jack was pretty hype.

They're the best antagonist crew in the entire series. Kaido's crew has their work cut out for them, especially since they're presumably all Zoan users.

Also on a smaller note, Queen better be a female character

I mean, it seems like it's rare for Fishman to actually communicate with fish, unlike mermen and mermaids (Pretty sure Jinbe was considered a bit of an exception for doing it)

yeah, its been really fun watching the live reactions and an excuse to go through the one piece journey all over again.

Some funny moments:
someone edited his reaction over robin saying i want to live in the anime

His reaction to finding out Gol D roger is Ace's dad and not Dragon

and moments of tears:

I recently decided to get into One Piece and over the course of a few months caught up with the manga. Reading in bulk is amazing. Being able to read a volume in one sitting is so much more narratively satisfying than single chapters per week. I loved Dressrosa, but I can completely understand how reading week to week probably sucked.

The only arc I wasn't 100% invested in was Fishman Island, but it seems that is a pretty common opinion. OP quickly shot up to the top of my favorite series ever.

I need some suggestions for other long running manga series that I can binge on.
