I really hope they don't stick to the 1 episode 1 chapter thing in the future episodes, if it didn't work during an action based arc its going to completely fail in a story based one.

Well, considering how close they are to where the manga is, if they DIDN'T do it this way, expect ALOT of filler.

Unless the anime goes on hiatus or does long filler arcs, the slow pace can't be avoided.

Though, where the series is going....


I can see reasonable filler of the world coming up~

I would probably go as far as to say that this was my favourite episode of the arc. It helps that the music placement was absolutly spot on, especially for 'over look of the battlefield' scene towards the end. So good, just so good. I also liked how they used the piece known as 'Luffy's Fierce Attack' twice, which the episode was focused on Shanks. It's pretty much his own piece now.

I can see fillers starting pretty soon, though like i've said in the past, there's plenty of material to go with.

Nice end to the Marineford arc. Shanks was total bad ass. Hope Law can save Luffy and Jimbei.

Ditto.
What's the point of getting canon episodes quickly if they are not gonna be as enjoyable as they should be?

The absolutely terrible pacing is so bad that it HAS taken its toll on the quality of the canon episodes. What should have been an incredibly epic arc was dragged down to mediocrity for the most part because of the slow pacing. It just made it a hell of a lot less enjoyable than it should have been; honestly i can't even sit through the whole episode it takes so long for things to happen. Its really is a bad sign when you spend 5 minutes on intro theme and recap and yet still can't pace the story well. I'd gladly endure a year or so of filler if it meant that the canon episodes could be as well paced and enjoyable as they should be.

Really One piece is a series that will one day benefit greatly from the DBZ Kai treatment

^ My sentiments exactly.

-----

I liked how Toei added in a stare down between the RH pirates and BB pirates. They too can see an inevitable clash between the two factions.

And on that note, I can't wait to see BB kick Shanks' butt later on (perhaps even resulting in his death) .

I'm one of the rare ones who doesn't have any problems with the pacing. Sure i wish it was paced just like the manga (a good example would be Dragon Ball Kai), though i honestly don't think it's anyway near as bad as most people make it out to be. I truly enjoyed this arc animated.

I'll also have to disagree with the second part of this.

I enjoy everything about the anime except for the pacing. The wonderful soundtrack, superb voice talent, vibrant colours, etc., all bring Oda's story to life beautifully. It's just that the slow pace makes the experience less enjoyable than it can potentially be.

Differences aside, we can safely say their showdown will be one of epic proportions .

Yeah, the pacing seriously irks me, as well. It's pretty much why I've only been watching bits and pieces of the anime since around the Enies Lobby arc (actually, I've had issues with the pacing even before then, like when Toei practically fillerized over half of the Davy Back Fight arc..... ). I'd definitely watch the anime again in full once One Piece Kai comes out, though..... about 20 years from now.

I'll agree that the pacing does destroy a lot of things, though the elements Blackbeard brought up such as the musical score, voice work and so on totally make it up for me, so it just doesn't bother me how slow the events are being adapted.

For sure. I hope it'll also be the first time we actually see Shanks in battle, adding that huge surprise element to the clash.

& yeah, fingers will forever be crossed, hoping we'll see One Piece get the Kai treatment in the future. The very distant future.

Kinda funny when you think about how it's been 10 years in the anime since Shanks has seen Luffy, and it's actually been over 10 years since that episode aired. A fun fact if you will.

seeing the episode makes me think that shanks and his crew will be the one who will deal with the BB pirates not the Strawhats.hmm

Situation-wise, he sorta does. Medical-wise, Jinbei will be allright but Law would have a difficult time with healing Luffy both physically and emotionally. On to the next arc. [snip]

I'd take filler any day .. we are well-versed in Bleach & Naruto fillers (for better or for worse), but OP doesn't have that many - I'd try some if it meant a faster pace


Bepo was cute

Yes but then people say that Shank gets owned and Blackbeard kills him, but it might lead to that, and then in the end Luffy beats the crap out of Blackbeard? Right..?
^
Total guess but I wonder if that would really happen since Shank is also a peacemaker. He wouldn't start a fight for no reason at all..
