Review: ワンピース [Wan Pīsu] 79

ワンピース [Wan Pīsu] 79 ワンピース [Wan Pīsu] 79 by Eiichiro Oda
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was getting so sick of the lack of progress being made with Dressrosa in the anime, and to be fair, I can't comment on the manga side, that I said "f*ck it" and finally started reading the manga, which some day in thefuture I plan on slowly reading through from the beginning. Anyway, I read a few chapters, and BAM! It's finally done with. Doffy is an excellent villain, but nothing could go as long as his story did without me getting sick of it. The art is pretty good with a few stunning panels, the was so many characters from the entire arc got together was well done and fun to see, and it was nice to see people actually praising the Straw Hats. Also, the big introduction in the last chapter is pretty amusing while also setting up a very intimidating antagonist. My biggest issues are that I thought Gear 4 looked stupid, though was otherwise interesting, the 1 minute thing felt way too much like a standard Shounen trope, and the way Oda does the speech bubbles makes it really difficult to tell who's talking quite frequently.
