One Piece Thoughts

Okay, as some of you all might know, I've recently started watching One Piece. I know I'm showing up late to the party, but I was just too daunted by the length of it before to really give it a shot. However, I figured that enough is enough, so I really started in earnest. Last time I wrote about the anime, I was about 30 episodes in.

Now I'm up to episode 125, which feels like a lot, but really is still the beginning T_T. But anyway, I figured I'd share some thoughts I have on the anime so far!

The only things I really knew going in was that One Piece is an anime about pirates, and the main character is like... stretchy. I figured at first that this is a dumb power to have, and that it wouldn't have practical use in fights.

I was wrong. Very wrong.

{Okay this gif is from further in the future than I am in the anime, but googling for Luffy fighting gifs results in all stuff I haven't seen yet, so bleh.}

See, I never imagined what being a rubber man could do for your fighting style in terms of the range it offers you. Luffy is able to fight from a greater distance in hand-to-hand combat because of his Devil Fruit powers. Hell, the range actually makes his hits more impactful. Plus the speed which he can throw punches, and the elasticity of his arms, it all makes it seem like he's punching dozens of times for every one punch.

ZORO, MAN!

OH shit I didn't think I'd like this guy so much. When I first saw that he uses three swords, and one is in his mouth, I initially thought that it was some dumb kitschy thing. Again, I was very wrong. This dude is a damn BEAST.

Where I'm at, he just beat Mr. 1, the guy whose whole body was basically steel blades. Zoro promised that he would learn to cut steel in that fight, and oh by George he did it.

DO

ALSO THIS (literal) BEAST

When Chopper was first introduced, I thought he was just a kawaii-type character added to make the show a little fluffier, a little more kid-friendly or something. While I still belive that that's at least partially true, I underestimated the stuff he could do. He's still the most recent addition to the crew, so I'm sure I'll see more impressive stuff from him in the future, but for now he's actually surprising me at many turns.
