The ship can't even properly fly on its own without Shiki, it shouldn't count as flying.

Thread in Off-topic got me thinking.

Is One Piece one of those series you feel you need to add a 'caveat' to when recommending or talking about it with others, primarily because of Oda's artistic tendencies when it comes to women over recent years?

Not for me. The main caveat is its length if anything... :(

It's unfortunate how samey several of the female characters look, as well as the anime exaggerating the issue, but it's not like say, Fairy Tail or something. It does have its moments of course, like Rebecca's design or Nami's chest growing over the years, but that wouldn't stop me. The more noticeable stuff is things like the women not having enough fights, much less getting their hands dirty. A lot of them have huge chests, but as far as I can recall, random cliche fanservice scenes aren't very prevalent to the point where I'd be rolling my eyes a lot.

But overall, it's definitely not something I would ever hesitate to recommend. At the same time, if they're reading through it, and point out that kind of stuff, then we just discuss our mutual disappointment with it lol

---

Now that I think about it, Ivankov and co. is something I'd probably place higher in terms of being a potential caveat.

The only caveat with the Okama is that their appearances is played for laughs. They are otherwise competent fighters who are mostly goodhearted and their way of life is portrayed as valid.

Not 100% kosher, but it's aces as far as you could expect from shonen (or Japan in general, where mass audiences look at transsexuals as the kind of punchline Americans did 15 years ago).

I realize that much, especially in regards to Iva being a cool person, just that some of their scenes, like where the residents of are chasing Sanji around, or him being horrified that he received blood from them, well... Basically if I re-read it, it'd be a little disheartening, to say the least. Like you said, it's not 100% kosher lol

Serena isn't that bad. But 50 episodes until she starts doing something was really boring. And I will never understand why she cut her hair. Definitely the weak point of XY.

Pokemon definitely seems worse from the outside though.

I'm glad someone else is annoyed with the thread's Pudding obsession.
It's like the "SaNa" shitposters on /a/, only way more annoying.

It's weird how all the Pokemon shipping shit was actually a 4Kids product. At least that's what I've heard.
I know Serena's feelings for Ash was Japanese original but that was recent in the grand scheme.

Not to mention we haven't been "obsessed" with her for months now anyways? Lately all we do is wonder what's she been up to lately if anything, and Ray's the only one left with a Pudding avatar.

Shipping tends to happen in fandoms with a higher female presence (as girls and women are more likely to be the fanfiction writers), that's why Dragonball avoided it.

One Piece avoids getting bogged down because of Oda's peculiar skill in making characters sexual but not romantic (in that it's pretty clear where most of the crew's preferences lie, except maybe Franky, and that they have expressed those desires, and yet have never shown the slightest inclination of seriously acting upon them).

Basically you've got a group of people who have strong platonic connections to each other, and we've seen expressions of sexual interest floating around within that group as well, but somehow Oda's kept either of those from ever convincing most of the fanbase that a pairing is going to happen.

I'm not saying Franky's gay, btw. He seems very into his own masculinity but i'm not sure he's ever expressed interest in women. Even Luffy peeped on Nami and Vivi in the bath that one time, and Chopper found the gazelle mink.

That is true. A part of me doesn't like how they waltzed into Yonkou territory and got what they needed with negligible consequence in the grand scheme of things.

Big Mom was relatively in control when she killed her own flesh and blood earlier in the arc.

When she had the hunger lust on her full out she ate everyone she ever cared for, so...
