Man, RE2 is so fun, tense and has such good controls. And I still can't get over how good the visuals are. DMC5 even more so.

Capcom gods.

Whenever OP ends (I don't see this ending in less than, say, five years), I wonder how Oda will "adapt" to his new lifestyle. His current one (and any mangaka's really) sounds unbelievably atrocious and he's lived half of his life like that.

Yeah I’ve said it before but I don’t know how someone like Oda just “turns it off” after what will likely be 30 years of serialization.

He’ll likely wean himself off on shorter series/one shots.

Yeah that is what he said .
He said he is never do a long series again and he will do mostly one shots .
Still depending on how OP ends he could do some extra stuff for it ( anime wise) i guess like Toriyama .

Chopper forgot Scope the same way that Zoro forgot Ashura.
I don't think either forgot they just haven't had real fights in post skip.

Well maybe Chopper did since he doesn't even have arm point anymore it seems

Ashura definitely coming back this arc when Zoro fights someone who can actually challenge him

I predict Oda does what Toriyama did. Which is he makes 1 volume series for the rest of his career to scratch the itch.
He already confirmed as much. After One Piece it's just one-shots for him

Personally I don't expect more than a small handful of One Piece oneshots to ever come out post weekly serialization. He's fed decades of his life to this property. I doubt he will want to tell many more stories in it once he is done.
He might be forced to go the Boruto/Super route and let someone else tell stories in his world. The absence of One Piece is going to leave a black hole esque vacuum in the magazine that I don't think anything else will ever be able to fill

He doesn't seem like the type of creator to go for something like that, but I'm sure Shueisha has some say in what happens with the series post completion as well.

but this is really a cross that bridge when we get there type of situation. It's possible that the nature of One Piece's ending might not even allow for any type of continuation to be possible

Yea I do expect a monthly series to drop very fast once the main series is over. Just so the property still has stuff it can pump out for mobile games, shows, and other shit. Fortunately I can ignore that since I doubt Oda will be to involved in it.

Honestly I feel like Shueisha will try to find a middle ground that everyone is happy with. I'm sure there is some aspect of One Piece Oda could give a fuck about. And that is where they will choose to take their future stuff.

Yah that is a scenario I didn't think about at that point they might do what they do now. Create spin offs that are pretty much related in name only to One Piece. Though I do dread the day when I find out what the real answer to this question is.

But can he ever let go of One Piece?

I think Odq might go back and do some missing backstories in one shots. For example if he grazes over Crocodile he could go back and do something later

You know i wonder if the narrator of the series will tie into Oda's plan for the series end.

Like maybe it'll turn the events of One Piece were all being read from the account of the Strawhat Pirates in the far future.

Another enjoyable episode of One Piece (though I didn't like how long it took for Katakuri to walk from one place to another lol). That Haki clash was amazing.

Also really enjoyed the additional filler regarding Smoothie. I assumed it was through absorbing water from the ocean that made her gigantic, but this is far more sinister, and makes her DF look a lot more versatile than I initially thought it would be.

Also surprised they didn't end the episode with Katakuri acknowledging him, but going further to have them clash a bit. I liked that they didn't make Katakuri take damage for no good reason with said filler and make him conveniently forget that he has CoO.

Aya Komaki has got to be one of my favorite episode directors currently on the anime. Every episode she directs is very good-to-great.
Teaming up with Shuuichi Ito meant this episode was going to rock. And rock it did.

The majority of the community doesn't understand how important blocking, color design, and music are when it comes to anime. The shift to greyscale for everything but the blood when Katakuri stabbed himself and the usage of the new music track when he turns his back on his family and faces Luffy once more are two great examples.

Smoothie got the extra shine she deserved and those sword slashes were pretty stellar.

MVP goes to Yoichi Mitsui for this scene
