Except when the show started they were all around 15, now they are about 20. I would say thats an acceptable amount of growth. By anime standards anyways.
User avatar #184 to #112 - stanleys (07/13/2013) [-]
They have only aged by two years actually, they didn't age at all before the timeskip

To be honest, that's been there the whole time, but they don't play it up like they do on some shows *cough fairy tail cough*

that was the dumbest part of the series for me. even the davy back fight wasnt as dumb as that.
User avatar #212 to #88 - snowshark (07/13/2013) [-]
The Davy Back Game was actually very clever. It was harmless fun that expanded the universe and the relationships between the different pirate gangs whilst giving the main characters something interesting to do each. It didn't hurt the rest of the series but it did chew up a lot of pointless time.

Sanji's nose is unforgivable though. There could have been any number of reasons why someone needed a blood transfusion... maybe show Hordy and his gang as being something of a threat and wounding one of the weaker characters like Usopp or Robin or Nami... Oda tried too hard there.
User avatar #437 to #212 - formerlyaceseleven **User deleted account** (07/14/2013) [-]
i thought 6+ episodes was way too much. i think 2-3 wouldve been perfect.
User avatar #439 to #437 - snowshark (07/14/2013) [-]
Agreed. That wasn't worth a month's worth of manga time.

I was thinking of a pun about one piece but it was a bit of a stretch
#15 - suagrshayne (07/13/2013) [-]
That is exactly why I love One Piece. It continues evolving but never goes over the top or forgetting what made people like it in the first place. It also keeps the focus on the main characters and not the million side characters. (GIF semi related)

there's nothing wrong with side characters getting to have the spotlight now and then, bleach overdoes it with some of the secondary characters i admit, but i still appreciate the time spent on the lesser characters i love. Hisagi Shuhei ftw
#20 to #18 - suagrshayne (07/13/2013) [-]
I love seeing some depth to secondary characters but Bleach and Naruto have given more and more focus to the secondarys to the point that the main characters are almost forgotten. This is why the war with Aizen was three years long when it could have been shorter
User avatar #211 to #20 - snowshark (07/13/2013) [-]
Actually the problem's a little different to that. It's not that they give focus to the side characters so much as they have too many side-characters to focus on. Naruto started out well enough. First there were 9 then in came Lee, Neji and Ten Ten (who has done nothing of any worth in the series) and then Gaara, Temari and Puppet guy.

That's a nice, robust cast and it shows it's worth in the Chunin exams where most of the characters get a time to really shine and especially chasing down Sasuke. The problem comes from the fact that as time went on the story began dropping the side-characters in Naruto's case and then adding more and more in the case of Bleach.

Naruto's story got more and more naruto-centric meaning we had to wait a while before we got to see any of the side-characters really do anything. When we get to the Battle for Konoha arc very few of the side-characters get a chance to shine with Hinata coming the closest to being important (... let's forget that nobody mentions the confession of love nor the selfless sacrifice thing again for now) with the others doing very little. Konohamaru gets a swing but even then it's all down to Naruto to defeat all the Pains.

At that point Naruto has become so strong that nobody else can keep up with him so throwing more time to the side-characters is pointless as they'll all get shoved aside as Naruto's problems are too big for them and vice-versa.

Bleach though puts a reasonable amount of time into most of it's many, many side characters. 10 humans, 13 captains, 13 lieutenants, various seated members, 10 espada + fraccion + other arrancar and now Quincys. The only time we saw them tone down the side-characters was in the fullbringer arc which I maintain could have been the best arc in the series if it hadn't been rushed out by discontented fans.

OP gives things time to breathe and introduces things at their own pace and well in advance for the audience to acclimatise. It's good writing.

"It continues evolving but never goes over the top" I don't think it can get any more over the top than it already is.
#30 to #29 - suagrshayne (07/13/2013) [-]
When I said that I meant like jumping the shark. An example being DBZ having frieza as this ultimate being then Cell then Majin Buu, or Bleach having Ichigo constantly gaining a new ridiculous power. Luffy gets stronger but its always foreshadowed that he will need to get stronger for the future things he has to face
#32 to #30 - Rascal (07/13/2013) [-]
I guess it's also the setting, that helps with that, though.
In DB, at first, there was the tournament. Then the world and soon enough, they didn't have anything bigger than the galaxy to protect. They were just too fast to move the scale upwards.
In One Piece, there is the journey. As far as I know, they have only just come to the other half of the world. The JUST started the other half of the journey.
And in this half, you can imagine bigger and greater things as you go along, because it's not the ******* world as a whole.
Who knows how big the One Piece-world is?

In DBZ, they just got to the maximum to fast.

(Hope you catch my drift; English is not my mothertongue..)

One Piece is still incredible long and the entire plot of the show hasn't moved much since the beginning. It's a bad thing but it's also a good thing because it means One Piece can only get better and if you enjoy long anime then even better.
#21 to #17 - suagrshayne (07/13/2013) [-]
I disagree about it not moving but I partially see what your taking about. And atleast all that extra time is spent either building onto the story's world and its characters rather than spinning its wheels with overly long fights and pointlessly long fillers( if you watch the anime)
User avatar #23 to #21 - thatnigger (07/13/2013) [-]
Well of course the general story of Luffy trying to get to One Piece has moved a lot. He's more than half way there in fact. I meant more to do with the past and also what is happening in the present, rev army/shanks etc. There is so much that we want to know but we'll have to wait a long time before we get told any of it.
To be fair I'd love to rewatch One Piece because it's a lot of fun and I'm not too bothered about them not telling us everything.
#24 to #23 - suagrshayne (07/13/2013) [-]
Oh yeah, its going to be a few years before we learn about Shanks, the Revolutionarys, Blackbeard, the world goverment, the void century, etc but I excited for when we do and we atleast get bits and pieces rather than huge exposition dumps
User avatar #27 to #24 - herosoldier (07/13/2013) [-]
we already know somewhat about the void history because of the ohara episodes, and i feel that i already know enough about shanks and that they don't really need to elaborate on him too much more.
User avatar #225 to #15 - dantemp (07/13/2013) [-]
say wot m8?

OP is always over the top and it ALWAYS focuses on the other character. Luffy straight up admits he is nothing without them, whereas the 3 other MC's are overpowered as **** .

And that's why One Piece is still the ******* best!

Well I think the beginning of Bleach was pretty lame...but then it got interesting, in many ways

There's more to anime than just half naked chicks with big "plot" so I couldn't care less.

it is! it's currently on a break since kubo wants to finish the manga first while waiting for naruto, the anime, to finish (since bleach and naruto are the two biggest animes atm)

Naruto anime will ALWAYS be filler. ALWAYS. The Maga is pretty well written. Decent character development, great back stories, very good fight scenes. It does have its problems though. Unlike the anime, the Manga does entire arches of filler. You won't see two filler arches in a row, but they exist.

Plus, naruto is finally coming to an end. I've been waiting every week religiously.

Code Geass is one of the best shows ive ever watched. no show ive ever watched before made me go "i want that guy to die...actually no nvm i want him to live... NO! HOW COULD HE DO THAT?? HE NEEDS TO ******* DIE RIGHT NOW!!!!!...NOO!!! HE NEEDS TO LIVE NOW! HOW CAN THEY KILL HIM OFF NOW?? D:" if you've watched season 2, you know exactly who im talking about too. its just such and amazing show with perfect character development and a great story, amazing action scenes, there was fan service for a total of 5 minutes throughout both seasons but it was done well. It is an amazing ******* show, 10/10

User avatar #39 to #37 - thescyle (07/13/2013) [-]
be honest, the chimera ant ark is just bad, i read the manga so i can tell you, the part final of this ark is very nice and the following too, but this one is just boring to me, sry. but nevertheless the anime and the manga are awesome. i even prefer the 2011 version over the 1999 but thats mostly because the fights are made better and the characters development are put aside. For this i read the manga^^
User avatar #248 to #39 - anoninanutshell (07/13/2013) [-]
but the manga stops soon after the chimera arc so that made me sad
User avatar #291 to #248 - diabolicgnome (07/13/2013) [-]
there will be more its just on a ******* long hiatus
i think
User avatar #342 to #248 - thescyle (07/13/2013) [-]
yeah, BUT even the bit after i think was more awesome compared to the hole chimera arc..... but in person i liked greed Island the most, dont know why, it was just..... just WHAMSIKADABRAS if you get what i want to say

I'd regale ye and give some gifs, but i'm a tad mentally drained. Ye got about 468+ to catch up on. Ye've made a great decision, mind you there are very pointless fillers and maybe that dragged on story arc that has a bit too much crying and fan service. But I envy your late watching, you get to binge without waiting for new release for a bit.

I like DBZ and Bleach's DBZ-like fights. I like the stories too, obviously, but that's not the say I don't enjoy gratuitous, unnecessarily large scale action.

And also because I have a fetish for photoshopping people as super saiyans.
