That week's chapter was cool , especially Chopper's tank .... about the conversation , I don't think Jenbi will join the crew , but I'm pretty sure there will be new members , the story still has too many events to happen and it is impossible for the crew to remain as it is without change , may be some 1 will die too

I doubt someone will die. It took Oda this long to kill off a good guy, and he wasn't even that vital to the story, he just had a relation to Luffy in the past. But I think it is very possible for the crew to remain the same. They have all they need. They have everything they need as far as the actual traveling is concerned, and they have an incredibly strong crew as it is. Luffy has Haki, the gears, and his Gomu Gomu attacks. Zoro has his incredible swordsmanship. Sanji has Geppo, his Black Leg style, and Diable Jambe. Brook has his music attacks and his excellent swordsmanship. Robin has her Devil Fruit abilities. Nami has the ability to freaking summon lightning. Usopp is...well Usopp. But Oda makes him somehow powerful every now and then. Franky has his weapons. So they can be extremely strong without needing any extra members.

But yeah. I was a little disappointed in this week's chapter. It was good, and it was cool seeing everyone's new abilities, but I was looking forward to Luffy vs. Hodi :(

Oda has some skill to be able to kill off a character with little back-story, that isn't that important to the overall story, and still make it feel like a huge loss.
I love seeing my favorite character in the low percentages.

Indeed he does. Oda is just a master of story-telling. Everything so far ties together perfectly, even with so many chapters and back stories, I haven't noticed any continuity errors, and, as you said, he can make the readers really connect with unimportant characters very quickly.

I wish Jinbei Joined the crew. And is anyone turned on by the mermaid princess :embarressed
Still Luffy got like 4 girls (Robin, Nami, Hancock, and The mermaid princess, and Vivi).

I really like this manga, it seems like this manga will go on forever the author better not die on me >.> and the varity of everything with action, an the two year thing blew my mind. It is my favorite manga.. its territory in the manga like the locations are endless. (naruto and bleach is ard compared to One Piece)

When I read one piece I can't complain about any plot holes. It seems like everything happens for a completely plausible reason, and that nothing is just last minute "I win because of friendship" stuff. It's become one of the few manga I can read that I am not always 100% sure that the good guy will win, and that not everything goes the heroes ways.

I totally agree with that , that is why I prefer it more than Bleach and Fairy Tail , the only thing that get annoying in one piece that it sometimes take many chapters to describe each small detail like all these chapters about the Queen Otihime , it could be done in 1 or 2 chapters at max......

@Lulu-kun: I'm still just not that big of a fan of Jimbei :/ I like him alright, but I don't think I'd like him after consistent appearances that come with being part of the crew. And she is pretty hot :embarressed the hugeness is kinda annoying though. Yeah, Luffy's a ladies' man and he doesn't even know it haha

Yeah, I know what ya mean. Oda said it's only about half-way through at this point. I consider that awesome, like you, though some people are kind of turned off by the fact that it lasts so long. But I agree that seeing all the locations is awesome and that the fact that the action is very varied instead of 2-dimensional is awesome.

@Gamaster320: I know exactly what you mean. Luffy actually loses plenty of times (against Crocodile twice, against Magellan, against Blackbeard, etc.) unlike Ichigo, who almost never loses, and Naruto, who only loses to Sasuke.

@abkatinoo: Well, that isn't completely Oda's fault. He says that he wishes he could fit more stuff into each chapter, but his publishers want him to spread it out more. But I usually enjoy the flashbacks in One Piece. They don't bore me as much as Naruto flashbacks (except for ones with Minato XD ) usually do.

I don't see how it wasn't a good arc. I don't see what made it worse than any other arc. I found it interesting and a great way to show off Oda's artistic ability. We got some great scenery shots. And now, Luffy is just totally BA. The page where he walks straight through those two big dudes with no fear at all, and then Zoro and Sanji take them out, and then he just kicks the crap out of Hodi. Amazing. I can't wait to see the full fight in next week's chapter!

Well , may be it was good , but I can't wait till the clash against the real opponents starts , opponents like the other rookies who entered the new world , the new world's emperors(other than Shanks) , The Marine especially Akainu and Smooker ( I can't wait till I see Luffy kicking these two a**es ) , The Black Beard pirates and Do Falamengo and his mystery ...also to see what is going to happen with Luffy's father and his army

Yeah, I'm interested in seeing those rookies again as well. But I don't think Luffy will fight any of the Emperors until much later on in the series. He's got Shanks and Big Mama on his side already. So unless it's over Raftel or One Piece, he probably won't fight one of them. And I'm pretty sure Luffy would tear Smoker to pieces now that he has Haki. Akainu would be a good match, though. And I feel like the Blackbeard Pirates will probably be the last obstacle to the Mugiwara Pirates at the very end of the series, so we probably won't see that battle until much later. But it will most likely be super epic!

One piece(at least from my point of view) is a manga you really have to read a lot of before you truly get into it. It's not a 10 chapter ready to go manga. It's more like a 150 chapter get into kind of thing. But that is because the story is absolutely amazing.
