OOC: Ahahahaa so well. What can I say… I am not dead? *Sigh*. I’m sorry y’all D:
Anyway, I gotta be honest now: I’ve been following One Piece for… About 5 years now?? So for a pretty long time. It is one of my absolutely favourite fictional stories in pretty much any media, for infinite number of reasons, the main one being all the FEELINGS I get every time I watch it, ranging from absolutely hysteric laughter to heart gripping sadness. The fandom even though not the largest one there is, feels for the most part pretty friendly and accepting, and is simply put pretty awesome! THAT being said, I gotta admit I’ve been pretty disappointed in some aspects of the story that have been getting more prominent lately… Oda is an awesome storyteller, there is no doubt of that, but well… There has always been some sexist stuff in OP (which is not the only problem in the series, but probably the biggest one atm, at least for me personally), and I’ve always known that, but for the most part I’ve been able to ignore it until recently. The criticism towards the series I’ve read especially here on Tumblr has been(for the most part) very appropriate and has made me think a lot lately. And I think that is very important. Anyway, sadly I haven’t been feeling that much for One Piece lately. Which does not mean I don’t like the series any more or something, it is and probably always will be absolutely fantastic in my mind! And there’s so many awesome things to wait even now, putting the manga aside there’s the new film coming and loads of other amazing stuff! But I gotta admit the series have been disappointing me a bit recently.
Ah, I’m sorry I’m not good at writing stuff like this, and I probably totally lost my point somewhere there… But anyway, the newest chapter was frickin awesome, kinda raising my hopes up once again(YOU GO GIRLS!!!), and I hope Punk Hazard has a lot of nice surprises yet to be seen!
I’ll try do my best with AskMugiwara too, thanks again for all the support and awesome questions I’ve gotten, they always light up my day!
