Now guys to be fair to Fairy Tai, Acno does have a backstory......

It’s just sorta shown in the Fairy Tail Dragon Cry movie, which no one knew it was gonna happen till the movie came out.

I remember getting kind of into Fairy Tail a while back. Sucks that it sounds like it didn’t end that great.

I liked the random times when the author would just not use dialogue or narration and it worked really well. Kind of a weird bullet point and litmus test but whatever.

I really don't see the point of seeing brook getting his ass kick or seeing semi fodder get beat \ fights that don't matter .
OP has been going on for 20 years i would like to see the ending lol.

At this point OP cast has gotten way to big for that sort of stuff now .
Wano could last for years if Oda show to much .
Wow, Big Mom is semi fodder now???

EDIT: Sorry, got it wrong.

We never got an actual back story on the final Villain Aconologia beyond he became a dragon King and wants to all creation for no actual reason. That's insulting lazy. That's my issue bad explanation take some effort. No explanatons and no backstory takes no effort
He want it cause he power hungry and arrogant i really don't need more than that .
I mean we know he became a dragon slayer because dragons kill his famliy and destroy his city .

That doesn't explain anything. Power hungry and arrogant doesn't make you destroy all creation. It makes you want to rule the world at most. There's nothing there for a supposed Final villains it's really, really bad. It's 2+2=100

I liked Katakuri’s sighing and telling Brûlée to stop hyping him up so much lol. Big brother’s just trying to do his job.
I'm glad the whole loving big brother thing wasn't just him being sarcastic.
This is actually genuinely refreshing too. You'd expect someone with Kata's design to fall into that "too cool for school" anime trope but he's genuinely just a dude trying to keep the family together/defended. Those Katakuri memes from a bit back weren't too far off mark. :lol

Fights have never really been the draw of One Piece for me. I like them, they can be cool, but I still consider it an action/adventure manga.

I like the characters and how they bounce off each other. I like the settings and the larger political workings of the world.

Plenty of One Piece arcs have treated fights as afterthoughts or straight up avoided a "traditional" fight. And I never liked the idea that a character had to fight in order to make a meaningful contribution to the arc despite evidence to the contrary.
I dunno, most of my favourite arcs in One Piece (Arlong, Crocodile, Water 7) where great because of the fights, not the drama or poneglyphs or adventure... I treat these as a bonus.

The arcs that I dislike the most are the ones with 50+ characters that I don't care at all. So Marineford, Dressrosa...

And there's the middle ground for arcs that are innofensive for me, like Skypea, Saobondy, etc... I guess that if it wasn't for the fights I wouldn't even be reading One Piece. It's the hook aspect for me, and seeing it being underdeveloped makes me sad.

He's a surprisingly fun character. Really Oda's ridiculousness of everything and the sincerity of him rather than being a pure trope is what makes it.

I mean thgere's is absolute no way Oda wrote about a baby straight after birth standing up and taking a seat with a straight face. That shit's straight out of a comedy stretch.

The whole he's not your standard undefated fellow really makes the joke land.

I mean you know Oda is having fun with him .
All his hype is in the most ridiculous way possible .
I mean the man have never sleep lying down say it all lol.

plus you have Brûlée talking trash in the back ground which we all know is fucking annoying .
I used hate when people do that stuff when playing in arcades back in the day .

Man i'm simply in a state of actual shock from the Metal Max 4 box and images posted in the media create thread. i have never before such a ridiculous level of fanservice for a box art and I've seen some shit. I'm not sure what to say. At leats we had a good OP chapter.

This humors me, as the fights are the bonus for me. Obviously they're important, but the world building and character interactions have always been #1 to me.

I love the fact even as a baby Katakuri never lied down

I hope he trips and falls on his back that mess up his game
It's hard for me to see Luffy winning this fight, but I gotta imagine he'll at-least knock Katakuri on his ass lol.

Such a weird feat too. Impressive, but weird. That's probably half the reason Katakuri is so damn strong. Dude's gotta have legs as strong as tree trunks!

Brulee is trying to out hypeman Speedwagon.
Haha, I loved how Brulee was hyping up Katakrui.

What even is this?

I feel Dressrosa has alot of these problems.
This, especially with the secondary villains, they come nowhere close to the BM Pirates.

I would die from laughter if Katakuri loses, but still remains standing up somehow lol

Impossible.

The bigger they hype Katakuri, the bigger his fall will be. I just want to see if Oda will use the asspull way of power up or if Luffy will actually try to escape after a while.
Didn't Luffy promise to never run again? Although I guess he's already doing that with Mom.

Brulee is trying to out hypeman Speedwagon.
Not enough tears or going out of the way to say that she never normally complements others, but Katakuri is too magnificent to ignore.

Zou managed to be a greatly enjoyable arc without the need of really having fights thanks to it's world building, really strong side characters and one the best twists you can find in a manga.

Problem with whole cake island is oda has been presenting these in counters like cracker, sanji vs luffy, his brothers, judge, pedro vs tamako, brook, daifuku,oven, vinsmokes vs big pirates, candyman action but has drop the ball on every in counter so far thanks to not having any commitment to any off it.

I would rather have none of it then a half ass tease and no no anime can savage this bullshit, oda obviously aware of the lack of action in this arc since he apologize for it in recent interviews half way through the arc.

I really like how Luffy want to punch Brulee in the face even if his hand full with Katakuri .
Back ground trash talkers are the worst even more so when they not better than you lol.
A trash talker from the background that is stronger than you sounds hilarious now that I think about it.

Katakuri will be the new Whitebeard
Now I want Oda to go all out and narrate his defeat lmao

C'mon guys, pay attention :p

Literally the first thing that was ever said about Katakuri is how he's able to see a few seconds into the future.
What the fook? What chapter was that?

Is that haki related?

Also, chapter was pretty much a giant nothing, should have skipped like I originally planned and watched two in a row.

Nothing happened with the fight lol...

He killed a potential assassin because he predicted he would attack

Kinda hard to take your complaints about a chapter being "a giant nothing" seriously when you're apparently not even reading the stuff tbh.
