Going by Chapter 0 - Strong World, Marco would have to be around Shanks' age. Two years after Roger's death, we see him on WB's ship. That suggests that he's indeed a veteran pirate who has lots of battle experience. Marco's age is probably anywhere in between late 30s to early 40s.

The war at Marineford wasn't the most accurate way of gauging how powerful the elites are. Lots of fights got interrupted. And there's also the fact that the WB pirates were trying to rescue Ace and not battle the marines to the death.

i just read in an anime wiki that marco has been a member of the whitebeard pirates for at least 24 years! i don't know how accurate that is though. but he looks so young! well, at least to me he does. could it be possible that he's actually much older than he looks? his ability allows him to regenerate at will so it's possible that it could affect his aging process. shanks is around 39 but marco might actually be older than that. hmmm...

Some 40 year olds look young..I can name a number of male celebrities (and a female one..Jennifer Aniston) off the top of my head who look like they're in their late 20s.

this is anime though, manga artists rarely give their older characters younger-looking faces. most of the time they even look older for their age. zoro and sanji didn't look 19 to me, they looked much older. i initially thought them to be in their early 20s until i saw their character profiles.

Some people look older than their age, some look younger. Luffy looks arguably younger than 18-19, Robin also looks younger than 34.

Brook on the other hand...

Straw Hats vs Hordy's guys.
Sanji & Zoro were pretty cool.
Rook had an interesting tactic.
The fighting parts were nice.

Sanji's air walk was nice. Can't wait to see the Sunny's new weapons.

Am I the only one who was kind of disappointed? The animation wasn't really that great, especially for Sanji's skywalk. It was kind of annoying with the flashbacks too. The manga had small quotes from the characters which reference their training, but in the anime, they were long ass flashbacks that interrupted the action. I'm just really sick of those flashbacks because they show the same scenes we've seen alot. We had to sit through like 6 eps of flashbacks before we even got to the timeskip.

SHit this is so frustrating!!
I would rather have the fillers back rather than this crappy Animation!!!
the animation was so slow-based i wanted to punch the animators in the face!

LOL Yes, I thought the flashbacks interrupting the fights were quite jarring and destroyed the mood of the fight. It went from exciting music to total opposite just like that. Then they tried to bring back the excitement afterwards, but you feel so rejected from the last change to get that excitement back.

One Piece fillers have always been quite good, relative to the other major shounen show fillers, so it is definitely more welcomed. Considering how long they drag out each episode, I wonder if this arc will last another 20 episodes.

YES!

whats happening here is that they are trying hard to make 1 chapter = 1 episode which makes the episodes creates more flash backs flash backs and flash backs!!!!!!!!!!!!
this episode is breaking my heart for my love of One Piece!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually this episode didn't even animate a full chapter... This is why One Piece as a manga will always be infinitely better than its anime counterpart.

Finally Sanji learns to use a CP9 move. I've been waiting forever.

I hope he can do a couple more.

Sanji technically also knows Rankyaku since his kicks are like projectiles now, hitting everyone at a long range.

Man, I almost feel sorry for Hodi. Everything's going wrong. Also, I had to laugh hard at how happy the Kraken looked destroying everyone.

My favorite part of the episode? Luffy all happily amazed at the new Sunny-go weapons and forgetting about the fight, with Zoro yelling at him to get back in the fight. That is so Luffy.

The Kraken probably felt safer and happier with Luffy as well. I'm still waiting for Vanderdekken to come in and ruin the party. I still believe Shirahoshi will eventually use her powers at some point in this battle.

Everyone has become awesomely strong, it's amazing to watch them fight.
Sunny's new weapons revealed.
Well, everyone sure was thrilled by the new modifications.
The bike and tank were pretty cool ^^
That kraken Surume was a nice surprise, especially since it turned out to be Luffy's friend.

Yeah, but i think they should have made the scene when luffy used haki, a bit more flashy.
And it was a shame that the new fisherman pirates was so weak without the stereopills tho.

I think they should put out 2 episodes next week since they didn't put one out last sunday :/

Episode 557 was great. Franky was funny, but Nami, Chopper, and Usopp did not really stand out too much.

Now, Luffy is finally getting into the spirit of things. I can't wait until he kicks Hody's butt... wait, he just did.

As expected, Noah's ark is finally arriving to spoil the fun. How are they going to stop that monstrosity? I am guessing its original purpose was to transport the people of the island to the surface. Now, it can potentially destroy the island. All part of the prophecy, I guess?
