Ah okay, that's fine then.
I was too distracted to watch the show today, but I will definitely get around to it again at some point.

They're over there, by their theremin.

Oh my god. One Piece is so strawberry floating good.

Every single page something either important or funny is happening and every chapter just leaves you wanting more. This is easily the best manga I think I've ever read in terms of storytelling as well. All the characters, heroes and villains are all fleshed out and all amazing.

I'm coming to the end of Alabasta and I can't wait to see where it goes from here.

Even minor characters are pretty well developed to the point where they can be gone for 500+ chapters and you'll still instantly recognise them and what their goal is. Many battle-shounen suffer when the cast gets too big, but Oda has somehow made each and every one of his characters memorable in one way or another.

And that panelling. HNGH! :wub:

I just saw a trailer on Netflix for "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution", basically they've remade the first Pokemon movie but as a 3D CGI movie.

WTF why? Was anybody asking for that?
It's not like the animation looks top quality or anything either. And the character models....

Yeah, I saw it being talked about by the guy who did the original movie in the cinema before the recent Pokémon Movie with Lugia and Eevee and Zeraora. Looks shite.

Looks like something cobbled together in Source Film Maker, that skin texture just looks odd, like its gelatinous and semi translucent.

Yes.

And the new dub is really good, don't let the 4Kids one put you off trying it.

I've been meaning to watch One Piece for ages, I enjoyed the first 30/40 chapters but just dropped off.

Is there a UK steaming service, or is this a "Yar-har fiddle-di-dee" kind of situation?

It's on Crunchyroll but they aren't allowed to stream it in the UK.

Was just about to recommend OtakuStream but they shut down 4 months ago :( They recommend 4anime.

They're over there, by their theremin.

I get OnePiece from FunimationNow but I have to VPN/DNS onto the American version.

Means you get simulcast of the newest episodes if you're that far in though.

Is there a good VPN for Crunchyroll? I tried the free one that comes with Bitdefender, but the default server address was blocked and I can't change it without a subscription.

Never got on with One Piece.

Seems I am the only one in the.world to not enjoy it.

I have tried a few times with the anime both dubbed and subbed. Can't be arsed to read the Manga. I do enough reading here and on stream/playing games.

Why do they insist on making anime so strawberry floating hard to watch without resorting to piracy.

One Piece is heading to Europe on Crunchyroll.

I'm reading the manga though.
