About a year ago, I wrote an article about One Piece. I wrote about my thoughts and all that I liked about the series, and how when I catch up to the latest episodes, I’ll probably feel like I should have watched slower. Well this post will somewhat update everyone on where I currently am in the series.
Now I know that the series is quickly climbing to over 750 episodes, and catching up to so many episodes is definitely an achievement. Personally, when I sit down and watch a series, I somewhat need a day where I can go ahead and watch the show with minimal distractions and lots of time to watch it.
I am currently on episode 619 where Joker/Doflamingo have been revealed to work together. And that Luffy along with Law and others are working to escape the gas and get away from the island. We also see Franky in his robotic form as he’s outside with none of the others with him.
Whenever I watch One Piece, I am nearly always hooked, it’s hard for me not to watch the next 20 episodes because I feel like I cannot leave an episode without knowing what the next is all about. Each episode covers probably less than two manga chapters, thus they seem very short.
When I do eventually catch up, which is less than 150 episodes now, I will most likely feel like I should have waited a little bit longer before catching up because I read somewhere that the manga itself is around 65% finished, which means its most likely going to hit around 1300 chapters if it keep going at this pace.
I still have to read the manga, and since I’ve not really looked into how that’s going, I believe that it might be quite far ahead so I have that to look forward to. On top of this, I’d also like to talk a little about how a lot of the series I talk about here on Daily Anime Art are running to an end. Bleach manga ended a couple of weeks ago, and Naruto Shippuden will end the original manga in the next couple of episodes, but will continue with a lot of the Gaiden material in novels.
Once I have caught up with the One Piece anime and manga, I will definitely be writing about them in the future here on Daily Anime Art. This will most likely be before the year ends, in a couple of weeks/months (maybe, no guarantees) from now. With that said, I am really enjoying the anime.
I can already see that Joker will be the big bad boss that will face against Luffy/Law. And with that probably happening in the future, I can already tell that his powers are freaking crazy, he’s capable of controlling people just using his hands, he doesn’t even have to move to get rid of other people, he can make them do it themselves.
He seems like someone who Luffy has never faced before, someone who is at a whole new level that Luffy will have to find some sort of new power or ability to defeat Doflamingo. With that said, I’m really looking forward to what the next few episodes have for me, and what the manga will deliver. I can’t wait!
