Re: One Piece Plus(es) and Minuses (possible spoilers)
I can take the things that weren't my fav's OP hasn't been too bad with the 'WTF was THAT??!!!' moments. While being long winded can be a problem to me it gives even the smallest character more depth than 95% of everything in Bleach, and more sensical than in Naruto by far IMHO. No it isn't perfect, and sure it could be nitpicked to death, but to date I haven't had beef with any of the main characters, they fit together oddly, but perfectly as a crew. Additionally Oda could've easily spammed and put more and more uber characters on board all at once, but its refreshing that they seemingly have they're eye on development of the characters, than simply pumping them up in power. I won't defend OP or any manga though as best, it hasn't been seen yet, I'm not done writing it.
Just a Badass Crew...
"Why, Mr. Kyf? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting FOR something? For more than your Characters survival? Can you tell me what IT is? Do you even know? Is IT freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Kyf. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify a shinobi that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Kyf. You must know it by now. You can't win. It's pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Kyf? Why? Why do you persist?"
