If you guys remember, I started reading One Piece (shared feels here) and I left off on Chapter 96 (Arlong just died). Let’s continue with my poorly worded feels with very little context.
So that thing with the giants stunk. I literally stopped reading for two weeks because it was total garbage. “I can turn you into a candle! Muwahahah!” Umm… kudos for trying to be creative, but that was terrible.
Sanji is by far my favorite. He is also the one who gets the least amount of space, which makes me really sad. While he is as crazy as the rest of them, he seems to be the most realistic. I suppose that’s why I like him most.
I have a love-hate relationship with Chopper. I really want to like him all the time, but I really only like him when he is fighting. The other times he comes across as a whiny little kid/reindeer; it gets irksome.
And just to be clear, Ace was just awesome. There are no other words.
I’ll be honest, I don’t remember the number of the last chapter I read. All I know is that ViVi is back in her kingdom (Alabasta) fighting some dudes in the city. And I stopped reading abruptly because I frickin’ hate her. She’s your stereotypical trying-not-to-be-useless princess that is still terrible. I know that sounds mean, but she pushed all of my buttons.
I also think the entire Organization of Baroque Works is extremely stereotypical. It drives me crazy because the series can be so creative about the little things, but for the big things it stays within the mold. I’d prefer if the big picture was creative and the little details more normal.
I’m at a point where I’m not sure if I’ll keep reading. It’s reverse Naruto syndrome: with Naruto, when you read it in one fell swoop it’s more interesting. With One Piece, I think it gets boring. So we’ll see where the journey takes me next!
