The giant Franky robot was cool, him and Luffy Bomber should've had a big long AMV-worthy fight. >_> Well, at least we're back to canon now..
I skip the fillers!
Lets go to non-dragged animation yey!
Well, if you read the manga, you missed nothing. Good choice not to watch that, probably the worst filler saga ever made in One Piece :S
I never watch manga before i'm tired of the anime.
Reason: Anime will never entertain me, so 1st i see the anime until i find it boring, which means that i did not yet stopped watching One Piece, it is very very good, and it is so fast paced (atleast until ep 200).
I already gave a shot to the manga, but as long as i'm satisfied with the anime i will not read it.
It happened with the naruto, when i found the series boring, i switched to the manga and it is really 100x more exciting than the current series point (and so i quit the anime and just read the manga).
I don't like make up episodes with no pace at all to not catch the manga point, aswell as fillers, it doesn't make sense for me.
