    Ohh, that's a lots of questions. Let's see.

    Favourite characters: Just of the top of my head, Luffy, Zoro, Law, Nico Robin, Mihawk, Whitebeard and Aokiji/Kuzan.

    Favourite devil fruit: I like the ones that are a bit more esoteric, like Law's ope ope no mi and Doflamingo's ito ito no mi. But Oda can make just about any power cool and fun to behold, no matter how weird it is.

    Most hated arc: ...hmm, I like most of them and I don't really hate any of them. The one I like the least though it probably the Whole Cake Island arc. It has good elements and some cool new characters, but it felt like a chaotic mess most of the time and I never really like the aesthetics of the area. So yeah, Whole Cake Island is the arc I like the least.

    Most hated character. Caribou sucks. That's all he's ever done. I don't get why he's still around. There's nothing charming, endearing, funny or cool about this character. He's a waste of space and screentime.

    Favourite mystery: Who the frick is Luffy's mother? I really hope she's some badass lady on par with Dragon or Big Mom, but she's just staying out of all the nonsense so the marines have no idea she even exists while she's just travelling the seas at her own leisure.

    I'm not actually that familiar with a lot of theories for the series. So I don't have any ones I particularly like.

    But yeah, I love this series. Have since the manga got published in Sweden, or at least from volume 9 and onward. That's when it really seared itself into my heart and mind. And I'm all for attempting another discussion thread for it.

    I started reading One Piece in my teenage years but fell off in college. I just started to hate shonen anime and some of its more tiresome tropes. Ironically that's when I started getting into Marvel/DC and American comics.

    I actually got caught up recently and refound my love for it. If Netflix had the anime I'd rewatch here and there. I actually got a new appreciation for Luffy when I got caught up and Sanji's Germa 66 stuff was masterful.

    Right now I'd say my favorites are Law and Sabo but I have a soft spot for Usopp. Forget Naruto and Sasuke, Luffy and Ussop's fight in Water 7 broke me. A lot of shonens are about friendship but One Piece is the best at it. It could teach Kingdom Hearts a thing or two.

    I really don't have a hated arc but a few of them could be shorter. The 100+ issue arc can be tiresome an why my apathy for shonen anime started to form.

    Marco is back baby!! i'm too excited to see my boy in action. how are you guy's feeling about the latest chapter?

    also if you were building a crew, no less than 5 (6 including you) and no more than 10 (11 including you), who would you recruit? no Yonkos and no active Marines

    The scope of the current battle constantly catches me off-guard. There are so many established names running around that it's daunting to imagine all of them getting play a vital part in this whole shebang.

    I'm glad Marco's back and I hope that he gets to show off a little more than at Marineford, considering how the series has built him up now.

    But my favourite part of the chapter is Luffy and Kid interacting. They're just stupid fun rivals together.

    Do you guys think One Piece will end on its 30th anniversary? Part of me is saying that we're relatively close to the end and then there's another part that easily thinks the manga could go on for another 10 years.

    will it end right on the anniversary? I'm not sure, but we are definitely heading toward the Endgame now and I feel once Wano is over we'll be definitively in endgame territory. I don't see it going another whole 10 years, maybe 10 as a distant estimate, but I'm feeling more like it's to 5-7 years left till The End; closer to 5 than 7 imo.

    I really enjoy one piece. It is quite good, really.

    it's a pretty big feat but this was definitely Zoro's chapter. I'm also still so happy to see Marco around kicking it! We're itching closer to the big battles!

    side:
    I've noticed this debate in the One Piece reddit, who do you think are more likely to join the crew Momo and/or Carrot or Yamato?

    i've noticed most people agree Carrot will probably join permanently but it seems like the people who think Yamato will join strongly are against Momo joining. personally, I don't see Yamato joining the crew. it doesn't make any sense to me. people think she'll join because she asked and because she's "Oden" and actual Oden joined Roger's crew for a time. Luffy mirrors Rogers' journey, sure, but he isn't a copy-paste of his journey, and Yamato doesn't have a real reason or connection to the actual crew that it would make sense. what role would she fill? Carrot could be lookout, and Momo would be an apprentice, but Yamato doesn't have a role beyond "Fighter" and Luffy has more than enough commander level fighters; especially with Jimbei finally linking up.

    I don't see Momo joining at all, he has responsibilities in Wano. Carrot I would want to join more, but Yamato I see as more likely

    Luffy's crew could do with an Isidro-like character, and someone like Momo would fit the bill.

    Momo has to stay in Wano and be the country's new leader. This whole fight is currently to put him in that position, he going off to have adventures would be weird. He also hasn't expressed any desire to go with Luffy or the Strawhats after this. So big no for Momo I'd say.

    Carrot is fun but she's been a bit too much of a bit player in all the arcs she's been in. Like, she's had her scenes and pulled her weight. But isn't that important in the grand scheme of things and we haven't gone deep enough into her story and character for it to make narrative sense to join the crew.

    Yamato is the most likely of those three I think. While Luffy's crew isn't a mirror to Rogers, just the fact that Oden hooked up with the pirate king's crew might make Yamato want to do the same, to get the same experience. It would also be cool to have a female heavy hitting fighter on the crew (I know she lables herself as male currently, but I think that's more because she wants to be Oden and Oden was a man so she also needs to be a man, rather than generally prefering to be seen as a man, if I turn out to be wrong once the arc is over I'll take that back). Though I honestly think that Yamato will more likely stay as a body guard for Momo.
