Wow Tiger was a slave and that's why he went back to save all of them. Weird seeing Arlong shed tears. I hope we find out what happened to Koala. Wonder if she ever figured out her mom and the town lied to her.

So the story at Fishman Island has been twist around. It wasn't because no human was willing to give blood to Fisher Tiger as he was dying. It was Fisher Tiger's pride, desire not to be tainted with human blood, and the fact that he did not want to owe anything to humans, which lead to his death from loss of blood. I guess his crew spread the twisted truth around to cause further hatred towards humans and continue the conflict.

As for Koala, she should be 23 years old at present time, if she is still alive. Considering that she has the Sun Pirates tatoo, it will be difficult for her to join the Marines. I was thinking that she might, but then, that would mean serving the Celestial Dragons, which I think she would be against. If she is going to show up anywhere, I would expect her to be part of Monkey D. Dragon's Revolutionary Army.

At the very least, I expect to see Luffy's last remaining oath brother, Sabo (wow, looking through One Piece's character list to find a name is very dizzying), with Dragon.

Which makes me wonder. Does Monkey D. Dragon's name have any relations or connections with the Celestial Dragons?

Arlong is a soulless bastard with overflowing hate.
Everyone else embraced the girl just fine.
The reunion part was really touching.
The navy trap was just brutal.
The amount of sadness & hate in this episode was just overwhelming.

I was kind of hoping to see if Fisher Tiger had a bad ass devil fruit power or whatever but it just seemed to make Jimbei look stronger even if he did get punched out by fisher in the past just confused as to how a big time wanted pirate captain could get taken down by a few marines pffft even buggy the clown could have handled them.

Yes because we've seen plenty of fishmen with a devil fruit in the entire story of One Piece.

A few marines?

Did you miss the Rear Admiral standing there?

Luffy may not have been able to survive before the time skip.

To be fair...we've seen Jinbe fight a lot while we've barely seen Fisher Tiger do any serious fighting. So saying one is stronger than the other is like choosing which of two drinks is best having only tasted one of them.

All we saw of Fisher Tiger fighting the marines was after he had already taken a ton of damage. It wasn't just a few marines, it was a large group of them already surrounding Tiger and with Strawberry (who was Rear Admiral and is now a Vice-Admiral) right in there.
There's also the fact that some viewers are so spoiled by uber devil fruit powers and such that they forget that even Whitebeared was affected by bullets. Buggy would have handled himself pretty well against the group (except Strawberry) but he also has a DF that makes him immune to being cut and he can easily split apart to dodge bullets.
Fisher Tiger was surrounded and shot from all directions making dodging impossible and he had nothing to block. He was riddled with bullets yet he still kept fighting.
He has much more of my respect for dying while fighting that kind of attack than Buggy would have if he beat them all (not counting Strawberry)

Damn I never noticed that was strawberry this is what happens when you watch one piece while also ironing so that explains how he ended up messed up after that encounter its a shame though I would have enjoyed seeing Tiger fisher in fighting action. Couldn't agree more on the respect for him for going out that way as apposed to buggy beating that lot. I'm glad Arlong is still an as head even back then but its also good to see how & why his anger towards humans got so out of hand.

P.S. Humans suck lol

And now I'm just popping in to mention that the latest OP movie, "One Piece Z", has been confirmed for release on 12/15. As I said before, I shall make a new thread once more details of the films' content is available.

With better subs, things make a lot more sense.

Anyway, I noticed the ship's doctor, Aladdin, had an onscreen notation for his name and position. This is usually an indicator that he will play a major role later on. So far, we have not seen anything much from Aladdin, but I bet he will reappear during present time to make some sort of impact.

I would also like to see what Koala is like now, and how she has survived during the past 12 years. Did she turn out as Arlong suggested (spiteful), or does she become the person Tiger thought she would?

So that's how and why Jimbei joined the shichibukai. Always wondered about that, so i'm glad with the ep. So Arlong was able to wreak havoc because Jimbei couldn't kill him. So one group returned to the island, the other went with Arlong, wonder what the third group did.

Doesn't the third group join Hody? Or are you referring to the group with Jinbei? My guess, since Aladdin is still with them, he probably took over.

After watching this episode, I kind of guessed how Luffy will destroy Fishman Island. Queen Otohime wants the Fishmen to go above and be a part of the world. She wanted them to be set free. Knowing Luffy, he will oblige, and somehow, will force all the mermaids and fishmen to go up. Maybe he'll force the whole island up somehow?

The third group was the Macro Pirates. They were only featured in a cover-page mini-arc in the manga which was never adapted in the anime.

Still following Jinbei's story about Sun pirates.
Queen Otohime was the only bright spot.
I can understand Arlong's feelings.
Think they should move on from this story.

I'm enjoying the flashback but I feel like they're moving along a bit too slow. I think there's so much more that could be fit into these episodes.

Slow is good in this case. I hope this arc doesn't end too soon this year or else the animators would have to make a filler arc as a pre-cursor to the upcoming movie.

I just started to notice it now...

Since a while ago... One Piece anime per episode... is actually only around 10 mins long... the other 13 mins is taken up by previews and the 5 mins long opening song.... LOL

feels like the anime series isn't a regular series... but now... "anime shorts" (like those ones air on Internet lasting 5-10 mins each....)

When Jimbei was talking to King Neptune about joining the 7 Warlords, he mentioned that there was something strange about one of the conditions. I wonder what that is?

Also, now we know for sure what Jimbei meant when he let Arlong "loose". It just meant that he could not kill Arlong in order to stop Arlong from creating chaos. With logical minds, which we know Nami has, it is not Jimbei's fault at all for what Arlong did.

I wonder if the next episode will be the end of the flashback arc? The only part left is the death of Queen Otohime.

Flashback should last at least 2 more episodes.

Holy cow! That was so reckless of Otohime. Leaving her children behind like that to go off with a known homicidal lunatic. I can understand that she wants peace, but that was very unintelligent. I wonder if there is a political message in all of this?

Wow, awesome ability by Shirahoshi. Definitely want her as part of the Straw Hats crew now. Oh, btw, Vander Dekken is still a child predator.
