kek especially if its either a hooded figure or some old man/lady
Manusfucker is harder though
IF YOU DONT CHEAT WITH THIS SHIT AMULET THAT IS
Lady Maria raped me more than the Orphan of Kos
>filtered by Gwyn: sickdark edition
Unironic fucking skill issue holy fuck, learn to parry.
Except Maria has more than 4 attacks unlike Gwyn
Bonus points if the big boss is just a bunch of QTE’s.
There needs to be a boss that’s literally galaxy size and just rapes you
Tonight, Gehrman joins the hunt.
>mfw Freide's third phase
>Luffy is immune to Enel's attacks because he is made of rubber
>but he wasn't actually rubber he just believed he was rubber
>but he wasn't actually rubber he just believed he was rubber
doesn't he have the properties of rubber though?
One way or another he’s got the properties of rubber right now in the story because he slid down and threw that bolt of lightning at Kaido.
He literally has creation magic. If he thinks he’s rubber, he is. Think Orks from 40k
Does making it so Luffy got a divine power to make anything he believes real, undercut the humanist themes of freedom for actual people?
Man, so they don't even have to try anymore? They literally made asspulling a plot device. I know wanpiss has never been a serious manga but how could anybody even get invested in any way, shape or form at that point?
You don't know anything you're talking about so why make assumptions? You really think you've figured out a 1000 chapter manga you've read none of? I'll fill you in on a secret it's actually good to read
Is this real? I have never been more elated to be a contrarian. FUCK one piece, it's always been MID!
It's real. Gomu Gomu fruit was retconned to be some bullshit chosen one godfruit.
It’s really not a retcon though it’s obviously core to the final scene that Oda says he wrote first in writing one piece
>It’s really not a retcon
It’s a twist not a retcon
Plus Luffy was looking like the silhouette of joy boy as far back as the end of Skypeia, in the bonfire dance party drawing that Oda at the time said was his favorite and is super important to the overall story
That doesn't mean anything, he could be making shit up. The point is that Luffy has a chosen one fruit and has god powers now.
nah people were insisting it must be a retcon. And yeah so what the guy descends as a shiny god of liberation, why not
lmao I know you're being facetious but there are literally people out there that think this shit was planned from chapter one. It's hilarious.
Why wouldn’t it be? It’s not hard to say you’re writing a 30 year manga about the will to achieve your dreams and a goofy kid who embodies it, and say in the last third it’s going to turn out that this is a divine creative power. It’s intuitive really. It’s really just an extra level of metaphor for what was always the case in life and the story
this is what oda does
Yeah it’s really not that wild, I feel like people who think this is a problem are just really underestimating what writing is
>liquid walks away in fast motion
Holy fuck this is so fucking stupid.
Ignore these idiots. Yes, he's the reincarnation of the sun god, but he's still a rubber man.
>It's another "retard shonen protag is actually le chosen one"
There's no more ores in the shounen mine.
You're just jealous of big dick shonen protagonists because you're an NPC irl who excuses his lack of self-improvement by his apparent lack of talent.
A regular dude will never be the best, to be the best you need both talent and hard work. In a way, talented people have it more difficult because they have the divine obligation to get the most out of their talents while an ordinary person has no such obligation and has more freedom.
Man fuck hard work. Luffy is cool because the whole world is invited to his party and so are we.
>jealous of big dick shonen protagonists
Nice projection retard.
>blah blah blah I suck shonen protagonists' cocks and enjoy the shonen slop
Get a better material, gay
>"retard shonen protag is actually le chosen one"
One Piece has literally never pretended otherwise. Like they reveal early on in the story that his family consists of
1. One of the most legendary Marines in history
2. The most wanted criminal in the world
3. The second in command to the strongest man in the world, later revealed to be the Pirate King's son
At no point does the story ever imply that Luffy is some nobody loser, he beats a Warlord of the Sea within the first couple months of his adventure.
And on top of all that he was practically raised by one of the four emperors.
On top of that I'm thinking Shanks is a little more sinister than we thought and we'll have to reckon with that
Film Red killed killed off the concept of evil Shanks. Oda would be assassinated over a Shanks betrayal.
What? No, he is rubber.
That's not how it works at all. He has the Sun God fruit and the Sun God had a body made of rubber. Luffy's awakening just makes everything he touches rubber, just like Doflamingo's makes everything strings. Vegapunk saying Devil Fruits are created by people's imaginations is an explanation for where they came from, now how they work for the individual. It's not like if you believe a fruit does something, it suddenly will. Nobody said that.
Ah thanks for the clarity
Even if that is how it works it’s still stupid. Like if we assume that him awakening it is the result of his hard work and dedication, it’s still undercut by the fact it’s a “god” fruit. Idk just seems cheap
It is his hard work and dedication, if Luffy wasn’t who he was he would be like 95% of fruit users who use their powers unimaginatively. The power of a fruit is unlocked by learning and practice
That’s what I figured when the chap first released, that he unlocked the awakening because of who he was. just meant I wish it didn’t have the “god” name attached to it, feels a bit cheap to me
And then you realize the god fruit is still kinda shit.
800 years of people getting filtered by it.
Luffy was always the chosen one and it was never implied otherwise. You're confusing him with Zoro.
Luffy is not like Goku who autismed himself into godhood via hard work, he's like Gohan who has insane potential but unlike Gohan he actually works hard which eleveates him from top 1%, where got via pure talent, to top 0.01% or whatever arbitrary cream of the crop number.
Yeah but luffy has always been “Le chosen one” because of who he is as a person, not because of his genetics or shit like that. Idk, the sun god fruit stuff is a weird mix of “Le chosen one” and determination, so i don’t really know how to feel about it
>Luffy is not like Goku who autismed himself into godhood via hard work
That was retconned too, according to the Super manga Bardock made a wish on some space dragon balls that his sons would prosper (fuck Raditz though lmao)
Uh yeah and the whole fucking start of Dragonball is that Goku is a mysterious golden child named after Son Wukong the monkey-man-god and all this shit, who turns out to be a superpowered alien! Come on guys use your brain, I really do think people who can't handle something like One Piece without complaining don't know what the fuck they're talking about
No, you're right, it being this godly fruit that makes the World Government shit their pants and people are celebrating him being the chosen one is complete bullshit, and I think One Piece has officially jumped the shark, as if Wano being two years of garbage wasn't proof enough.
But the abilities themselves are fine. They're more or less in line with what fans were predicting. It's just a shame we have to acknowledge it's not an awakened silly ol' Gomu Gomu fruit, but a secretly mythical zoan, greatest fruit in the history of the world, random ass Sun God fruit.
>greatest fruit in the history of the world, random ass Sun God fruit.
I hope you're ready for Blackbeard's third fruit reveal.
>I hope you're ready for blackbeard'
man stfu we sleepin on One Piece
Everyone always thought he'd have some crazy Zoan fruit. Now that Luffy does, maybe Blackbeard won't. It's very much so in Oda's nature to just forget Zoans exist, and when he remembers it's just to bastardize them. So, him giving him a crazy Zoan fruit, or a non-Zoan fruit, or just nothing are all well within reason. The only things that could surprise me are if he gives him a normal Zoan, which would be cool but kind of anticlimactic, or something completely made-up, like the ancient forgotten Moon God who has the power to rip holes in space and time or something.
I would be happy if he just has a devil Zoan. Or shit, a Tasmanian devil Zoan.
He still is rubber, speedreader-kun.
His DF is special in that he gets some of the properties of his creature in base form.
One Piece shines for the side character stories, the fights are unironically filler.
>"So.... you've made it this far...."
>*unsheathes the most broken god damn sword in the series*
>"ahh.. It can't be helped...."
>just be the chosen one god bro
Luffy has the right attitude and that comes from him as a person, the god stuff is just planets aligning to turn that into the most bombastic miracle possible.
>just eat a fruit and become immune to bullets
is Luffy an incel?
why does enel has these taiko drums around his head?
I've only watched this shit on FOX Kids
Because he calls himself God so he’s got the Japanese Buddha finery
Reminder that Joyboy lost. It's literally a jobber fruit.
>fire giant dying after you whack his feet enough
>Malenia effectively having ten times his defense thanks to having a full healthbar for phase 1 as well as lifesteal
That's pretty shit.
I expect a fuck-you-sized super-saiyan-slaying giga-gigantic monster, to effortlessly wipe the floor with my sorry ass.
Haki was a mistake and godfruit bullshit was an even bigger mistake.
This face was good the first time Hackda used it, now he uses it every 50 chapters
Are we seriously saying Luffy accomplished his goals through hard work?
>dumpsters everyone in East Blue with his fruit alone
>asspulls Crocodile with "muh blood"
>lucked out against Enel
>randomly pulls Gear 2 and 3 out of his ass with no possible way to develop or practice it. He just suddenly has it immediately after getting dumpstered by CP9 in Water 7
>needed the help of his crew and getting stuffed with shadows like a thanksgiving turkey to stop Oars
>Moria couldn't handle his own sauce
>spends two years training, but trains learning the biggest asspull power in the series, haki
One Piece was better when he got away with stupid bullshit as opposed to giant haki fist #5
There's so much more to One Piece than that though, of course.
I mean, an asspull is still from perseverance. It doesn't have to be well written, just the intention. Personally I just speed read the fights, it's the grander adventure and not listening to what anyone says about it that's the important part about Luffy.
>fight a giant ass robot
>the pilot comes out and kicks your ass harder than the robot
MGR is nuts
At the end of the day the job is to stack amazement and wonder and power onto the little drawing of the hero guy and just set up those amazing adventures and insurmountable problems just so you can knock them down and feel like its a miracle when you're reading it. I mean lets be real here we're talking about pulling that level of adventure out of 21,450 blank pages with a damn pen, I'm pretty sure One Piece is amongst the absolute best you can do
There's no reason to retcon the rubber fruit to be some bullshit omnipotent god power unless you were planning to do some really retarded bullshit in the final battle. What happened to using creative ways to win fights as a rubberman?
>What happened to using creative ways to win fights as a rubberman?
Hasn't happened since Skypeia. Every finisher since has been either a reused move or a giant fist.
Of course he's planning to do some really 'retarded' but awesome shit for the final battle. Look if you really think having a guy descend from the heavens and joyfully and cataclysmically fulfill a promise to liberate the world is good sequential art, then I don't know what you're here for
isn't* good sequential art, lol. I'm saying come on do you even like comics if you can't enjoy a god of liberation incarnate coming to win the final battle against global oppression?
Damb daniel ar ar ar ar ar ar
>juan piss tards derail the thread
It’s a one piece thread look at the OP image
>you get to battle the final boss at the beginning of the game and he swats you like a fly
>you fight him again at the end of the game after you've become way stronger and he's STILL way stronger than than you
>you beat the game a loser
any real examples of this or are you just daydreaming
The Bard's Tale's "good" ending.
