Re: Naruto 612 Discussion
Oh for fuck's sake, Dagoro, are you really not getting what Shrike is saying?!
I talked about how One Piece as few PnJ as probably less than one per saga, Zoro surviving Kuma's transference of pain was one of them. Don't get me wrong, the scene by itself is good and Zoro going to Mihawk is also a good move, the result of the scene is what severely downgrades its value. Fake sacrifices are cheap in my book (unless they're part of a gag) and Zoro shouldn't have survived that transference.
Oda would make it better if it happened in late New World in order to get Mihawk's training and going through the time skip. That way it would have a bigger emotional impact, as he'd be so close to his/the crew's dream but dying before he could reach it. So if Kuma just let the Straw Hats go just because, of course it'd be anticlimactic, but it'd pay off much more in the future.
