One Piece is becoming the longest going series in Shonen Jump history. Not only the anime is reaching over 900 episodes and with the recent movie Stampede being a success, we’re getting another One Piece Pirate Warriors game. Already mentioned, One Piece will be getting a fourth Pirate Warriors game for the PS4, X1, Switch and PC. It’s been announced that the following playable characters are Luffy, Sanji, Zoro, Reiju, Jimbei and now Carrot. Originally, the game will be covering the Whole Cake Island. Now, according to Tokyo Game Show, fans will go beyond to the current arc in the land of Wano, the county of samurais and ninjas. Based on the trailer, players will be in the current arc of the story and it may be an original story different than what’s going on in the manga/anime. It’s pretty common especially since the 3rd game did the same thing in the Dressrosa arc. Also in the trailer, it looks Luffy will be facing another Emperor of the sea; his name is Kaido and he is one of the Four Emperors of the Sea. This game is coming out in 2020.

Are you excited for this game?

Jiren hates Dragons? Talking about Dragon Ball Super episode 127 *Spoilers Discussion*

Please donate to my Ko-fi to help my website: https://ko-fi.com/matthat

If Jiren was in Pokemon trainer, he would probably not have any dragon type Pokemon in his party or if he was in Yu-Gi-Oh!, he would be the one to destroy all of Kaiba’s Blue-Eyes White Dragons. If you don’t know what I am talking about, it’s about the recent English Dub episode of Dragon Ball Super on Toonami on Sept 7th. In episode 127 of Dragon Ball Super. Jiren is the last remaining fighter from Universe 11 and he takes on Universe 7 warriors (Goku. Vegeta, 17 and Frieza). Jiren easily dispatches everyone on his own and the god of destruction Belmond tells everyone the reason why Jiren is strong. He tells everyone that Jiren, as a child, lost his parents from an unknown powerful enemy. He was spared and he was raised by a martial artist who taught him and his students to fight. Unfortunately, the same enemy kills half of the students and even his master. Jiren tries to convince the survivors to work together and fight this enemy, but they all leave him. Back in the present, Jiren makes a comment about having the benefits of strength.

Depending on which language you prefer, Jiren’s response is different. In the original Japanese, Jiren states that having strength is important and having incredible strength will forgive everything including the past. However, in the English Dub provided by Funimation, Jiren gives a weird “DIO” speech about strength. He tells Android 17 about having strength and his opinion on the dragon from Super Dragon Balls. He comments that he doesn’t trust anyone including the dragon and all dragons. He thinks his strength will even go beyond time itself

The reason why I am writing about this is because I been seeing people these past couple of days making of Jiren and commenting on the awkward English Dub. In my opinion, as much as I prefer watching Dragon Ball in English, I did think it was kind of awkward. I felt like I was watching JoJo Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders. The voice of Jiren is Patrick Seitz, the same guy who voices Dio from JoJo and Franky from One Piece. Hearing this dialogue made me see Jiren as Dio instead.

What do you guys think about this dialogue? Time to include this text to your Dragon Ball Super memes folder.

One Piece creator hopes to end series within 5 years?

Image result for One Piece

One Piece is the longest running Shonen Jump title for both anime and manga. For its length, it was dubbed by fans one of the “Big 3” in manga and anime; Bleach and Naruto was one of the Big 3. The manga of Naruto ended in 2015 and Bleach ended in 2016, but the anime ended in a cliffhanger without entering the final arc in 2012. Now that these two are done, One Piece is the only one still kicking it. However, the question is this: how long can One Piece survive?

Prior to the Japanese theatical release of One Piece Stampede, a special YouTube video was released by Japanese YouTube comedy collective Fischer in which the YouTuber had a special interview with One Piece author Eiichiro Oda. Oda made a comment regarding how long he wanted One Piece to continue.

“I want to end it in five years,” said Eiichiro Oda

According to Crunchyroll and J-list, this time span is pretty vague but it also may be inaccurate. It could take 5 years or might even take within the 5 years. It was already mentioned that One Piece will have over 100 volumes and it is currently 65% done with the story.
