    end of spoilers be the most powerful of them all, even moreso than Thor... He IS Thor again, right? Admittedly, my knowledge of current comics comes from you guys (mostly read a few shonen titles), so I don't know. But has he got the right to use his own goddamn first name back yet?
    Odinson has been Thor for a while now

    I mean you could do it. It kind of seems like a slightly redundant division of labour to me.

    I don't understand what you mean by this.

    Like, I'm not reading the series, haven't bought much big two stuff outside of highly specific runs for half a decade now, but none of this stuff is permanent, the characters don't have feelings and you know that this mostly just means that they aren't the focus of this plotline.

    It feels like such a weird reaction to have.

    Like, call it bad writing if you want, call it contrived, call something that you personally don't like but singling out the run as something the character would somehow feel insulted by is such a weird take.

    Depends on the core skills of the individuals involved.

    There’ll be some people who are good at storytelling, characterisation and improvisation but aren’t good at the mechanical crunch side, whereas there’ll be some who are the other way around.

    If you happen to have a GM who’s good at both, treasure them.

    -_- I'm explicitly referring to the *presentation* of the characters, man. Odin, aka, "the Skyfather who can give a hungry Galactus a moderate challenge" spoilers:
    getting taken out by mook assassins is ridiculous. The same applies to Loki, whose magical prowess and physical strength, have consistently rendered his dad a negligible threat at best in their past confrontations until the plot of this series demanded he get eaten without so much as a fight.
    end of spoilers

    Now, if both situations turn out to be red herrings in the end, fine. But until proven otherwise, yes, this scenario is contrived and horrible story-telling. And I aim blame at Jason Aarons listening to your pet squidboat.

    Kawamatsu keeps getting hyped up so I'm excited to see what he can do. And Big Mom's finally at the prison and beginning to starve...so I'm assuming she might throw down with Queen soon.

    Also, so far this arc has an extremely weird format....but I kinda like it so far lol.

    I love how Caribou can't comprehend why Luffy was so quick to make peace and ally with him.

    Guy should talk to Nico Robin, learn how quickly SHE went from enemy to close friend and crewmate.
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    You might want to tag those spoilers there friend.

    EDIT: I actually think this is me being needlessly pedantic, you do you man.

    Sengoku and Fujitora trolling Akainu is such small but amazing thing.
