    Oh and quick side-note slightly related to One Piece, Colleen Clinkenbeard, the voice of Luffy on the Unofficial One Piece Podcast mentioned that she got married and is currently pregnant. So congrats to her on both parts.

    Last time? Finger'd*~

    episode 15/15 the end of an era.

    this show is truly mediocre. Not as bad as bleach or Naruto. But not even okay either. Just mediocre, which is something I hate! The characters are nothing, the music is worse, the story drags. Why must mediocrity be so popular? Bleach, Naruto, space dandy! The list goes on and on. So much potential with this show. A shame.

    oh well. One last episode of riffing. Just another show too mediocre to be of entertainment. Let's go!

    Last time: CP9 proves to be an overpowered bunch. Oh, and Robin got away at the end.

    This time: Prepare for a slaughterfest, folks.

    Previously on One Piece: CP9 (very slowly) explains their powers.

    Oh well, can't please everyone.

    I'll grant you the pacing is pretty bad, but these really are some compelling characters and plotlines (though it may just not be your kind of show).

    I'm been holding back, but I've got to ask:

    Is it just me or is this the worst opening sequence to air on Toonami?

    I don't mean to come off as flame baiting, but the song starts off as this upbeat fanfare and the edit comes in and the song has a "we give up" tone. It's laughably bad.

    Lamb, I agree with you as One Piece being mediocre and better than Bleach (ironically, that's what I call Soul Eater except I use "btb") and Naruto. I don't hate it; it's just not my kind of show.

    You mean the actual theme song? Yeah, well, that's editing for you.

    Lucci's a leopard man!

    And, if I may say so, this is one thing I really like about Oda's writing. He could have gone with something predictable, like a lion or a tiger, but instead he chose a leopard. I mean, it's just not something you see as often and it's just as valid as a ferocious beast.

    Lucci's head is really tiny in proportion to the rest of his body.

    Now CP9's doing the overly-long floating thing from Naruto. Well, at least they're not in a forest.
