    Foxy's back already?? I thought we wouldn't have to deal with him again for months.

    This isn't Bleach. ;) Filler arcs in One Piece are mercifully short.

    Foxy is only back for 2 episodes, then we won't see him again till after Thriller Bark.

    Yep, and then we shouldn't be seeing him again. (Though I think he had a coverstory in the manga? My memory is foggy.) Either way, I remember this filler being pretty random and not needed. How close was the anime to the manga during these episodes? This entire season and the next really began to start dragging the show...

    I'm probably gonna skip these next two episodes, I had enough of Foxy for a while. Though I will say between the start of the CP9 arc, the season 2 premiere of TMNT and the release of Pokemon X and Y, 10/12 is going to be one busy day for me.

    Oddly, the Foxy Pirates are one of the few groups of characters that Oda has never revisited after their initial appearance, not even for a cover story. Which I guess makes them perfect material for filler, since there's nothing canon to contradict their fate after the Davy Back Fight.

    Previously on One Piece: The seahorse just wanted to fly like a dragon, and, well, I guess Luffy granted his wish.

    Well, to make these next two episodes more tolerable, I'll be making as many fox puns/references as I can (or maybe that'll actually make it worse).

    Last time? Everyone got the memories back. Let's go to the next arc.

    Oh, it's THESE guys. I thought we got rid of them.

    FYI, those are the Five Elder Stars. The head honchos of the World Government.

    Ooh, Aokiji.

    Yeah. Not crazy about the voice actor choice for him either.

    Oh great. Fantastic Mr. Fox returns.

    And now he's giving us some Fox News.

    And now he's reunited with his crew. Well, that was fast.

    On the contrary, I really think Jason Douglas sounds splendid as the guy.

    I'm just clarifying for those that don't already know the guy that he's not really black despite how he sounds. Though he does coincidentally rock that Thugnicifecnt hairdo from the Boondocks.

    You do know his design is based off a Japanese actor, right?

    "Split-head's on fire!"

    "He's on fire?"

    "That sounds dangerous."

    Ugh, they did not just make that joke.

    Haven't Nami and Sanji heard the phrase "on fire" before? This isn't NBA Jam.

    Late live-action Japanese film actor, Yusaku Matsuda, right?

    Yeah, I'm aware. I forgot which SBS volume that tidbit was mentioned (it's somewhere waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond where the dub is now), but yeah.

    His crew is lost, and now he's been mercilessly beaten. Foxy must be one Redd Foxx.

    So....the Strawhats aren't even the main characters in this episode.

    Well, this is one way for a character to earn my respect.

    "Stay down or you'll get some more of me, see? Do ya want more of the ol' one-two? Fine, here, here. How do ya like them apples?"
