One Piece – 454

「仲間達の行方 巨鳥のヒナと桃色の対決」 (Nakama-tachi no Yukue – Kyochō no Hina to Momoiro no Taiketsu)
“The Friends’ Whereabouts! A Cheeper of Giant Birds and a Pink Showdown!”

Oh, the horror, the horror. Upon the Grand Line, Momoiro Island, Sanji lies in vain. I feel so bad for Sanji; however, the scenes in this episode were borderline yaoi (trap yaoi that is). If anyone were to hate on One Piece’s art, this episode would surely only further cement that belief. But hey, more info about the crew in this episode as well! As many people including me were guessing, Ivankov was once the “Queen” of this land, and Caroline seems to have been his subordinate. Perhaps when Ivankov returns to the island, he’ll take Sanji back to Sabaody.

The highlight of this episode has to be Sanji in a dress. I thought it was bad there, but then he starts getting embarassed, and it’s just a giant snowball rolling down a hill of bad. It may just be me, but Sanji could actually pull off being a girl if he didn’t talk and shaved his legs (at least more so than the other “females” on the island). But the whole getting embarrassed thing with the bloomers and then the accompanying images, along with screaming like a girl, this was just so wrong on so many levels. Has Sanji’s manliness been stripped to so little of a degree?! Hell even I felt embarrassed along with him… I had to pause the video to take a few breathers. Well, whatever the case, he’s not getting out there anytime soon.. -_-

Meanwhile in South Blue, on Torino Island, Chopper saves a chick with his medical skills. The chick is also the prime example that anything giant, round, and fluffy, will be cute (it even glows). Hilariously enough, Chopper cooks up the idea that after the chick grows up, it’ll be able to fly him to Sabaody. You know, I’d expect Luffy to come up with these kind of ideas, but Chopper often falls near the same tree sometimes. But Chopper at least has an excuse of being that young child with naive ideas. He definitely seems like the youngest in the crew, and everyone looks after him because of that. Still, I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s how he eventually gets off, given how far the island is from the Grand Line. Curious thing is, who knows why the birds fight the humans (well besides the obvious reason that they don’t like each other)? Maybe it will be of importance, maybe it’s just for kicks. Also, the humans have rocket propelled spears? Where the hell did they obtain that kind of technology?

I’ve noticed a pattern between these groups, as the previous two want to get back, but they don’t mind staying for a bit longer. Meanwhile, these two desperately want to return, and the next two have some indifference about getting back. Well, it might just be me. Usopp being a pig and Robin trying to help/escape the slaves should prove to a very interesting episode.

    If Zoro ever saw Sanji like this… ooooooooh maaaaaaan. I’m most interested in what Robin and Zoro are doing, so next week should be fun.

    Robin had a ton load of cleavage in the preview. I smiled.

    anyone, save sanji!!!

  • June 11, 2010 at 6:53 pmrevo

    Robin’s breasts look like they’re in need of air, srsly.
    At least the crew members will all gain something important to becoming stronger, or so I hope.

    If sanji becomes a newkama and learns newkama kenpo….he might power up, besides overcoming his weakness of women.

    *cringes* Seriously, poor Sanji!!!!!

  • June 11, 2010 at 9:44 pmEspada

    • June 11, 2010 at 11:55 pmfreedomapoc

    “feel the wind, feel the wind, you know you REALLY gotta FEEL the WIIIIIIND!!!!!!” SHUT THE F#*K UP ALREADY, and CHANGE THE THEME SONG!!!!!!! its torture!! and i thought crazy rainbow star was bad, I’d pay to hear that one instead at this point.
    BTW- sanji NOOOOOOOOOOOOHOHOHOOOO!!!! that was pretty funny ,minus the boring chopper part.

    • June 11, 2010 at 11:54 pmraklaron

      Yeah, lets hope that with upcoming WB arc, they’ll change it to a better song that suits to a battle (i mean like Brand new world – 6th opening…it’s still my favourite, also it didnt have this much spoiler)

      • June 12, 2010 at 3:03 amBROOKLYN otaku

        TRUE DAT YO!! #6 is pretty good, nice balance of action with no spoiler, and the song was fast and nice. BUT for my money the most awesome song and video was #8 with Jungle-p, THAT is how you do an intro! i can listen to it over and over

  • June 12, 2010 at 2:08 amAlec

    Sanji wont prolly get a powerup. instead he’ll be able to fight against women

    that is total plus

  • June 12, 2010 at 7:44 amWildGamer

    I’m pretty sure it’ll take one line from zoro to snap sanji out of it.

    “Looks like I was right…you ARE the prince – or is it princess, now? – of retardia.”

    i think i’ve never seen anyone in One Piece blush so much before.

    much less Sanji.

    but i’m in total agreement that it will only take Zoro to snap him out of it.

    that is, if seeing the girls, Nami and Robin, isn’t good enough. i’m sure they would bring him out of it too.

    I can’t believe Sanji went homo on us. By the time he rejoins Luffy, he better be stronger. Else he just went to the dark side… and you know what they say: Once you go black there ain’t no comin’ back.

  • June 12, 2010 at 6:37 pmneko

    i agree… it was embarrasing to watch sanji going homo .. lol.. im worried about him.. really xd… anyway .. i hope next chapter will be interesting with Robin and the revolutionaries

  • June 12, 2010 at 9:23 pmtollo`

    i think sanji is pretending

    • June 13, 2010 at 1:02 amSnorlax

      Sanji wouldn’t pretend to be an okama

      • June 13, 2010 at 10:55 amJowgen213

        Yes, he is pretending…. look at the veins on his arms and head… he doesn’t want this

  • June 13, 2010 at 6:56 amokama king

    Sanji make me horny!
