    And you're exactly right, but it would appear people never got the memo via God Usopp's bounty. But what can you do?

    Jack character is interesting. But Kaido himself seems has meaningless life by wanting to die (from the surface).
    They're a bunch of beasts not minks.

    Maybe not messy but rather complicated, but OP has been like this, its just don't force too much stuff so it becomes draggy like Dressrosa arc. Sometimes less is more.

    And now we know why this lunatic has a bounty of 1 billion. What an awful person.

    So Jack's trying to retrieve Caesar or Dofla? He could have Sanji held hostage.

    Doflamingo.

    Jack and Sanji apparently never met, so he can't be a hostage.

    As far as the world is concerned, "God Usopp" did something to completely piss off Doflamingo (and got off alive and without taking a beating from him or his lackeys), and that in itself merits such a substantial bounty increase.

    They could meet at this point as its not clear their whereabouts.

    Although it doesnt seem Jack is a kind who takes hostage

    No, they really couldn't have.

    It's safe to assume Sanji's probably nowhere near Jack, as Jack's somewhere recuperating after his raid on the escort ship.

    I think you misunderstood who I was referring to. I was talking about the fans, not the in-universe.

    In universe yes, no one except for the people who actually know him have any reason to not take his bounty seriously, as Usopp played a huge role in Dolfamingo's defeat.

    By the time Sanji got to Zou Jack had already left to get Doflamingo, so unless Sanji has a Jack tracking device he's not with him.

    I am really curious about Caesar's wearabouts though.

    Wasn't C w/ Sanji & co the last time?

    If Dofla was so important (I thought its b/c he owned Caesar before), now it might have got to do w/ his background, knowing secrets & weapon etc that Kaido wanted him badly.
    And started a big war if he had to (?)

    Well that answers my concerns for Caesar, Sanji being with Big Mom kinda makes it seem like she's the first target and not Kaido. Which is cool.

    I think the main arch is still about Kaido & his executives since its Law & Luffy's first intention, plus Kaido character is already introduced clearly. If not the story would get overlapped.
    But Im curious how it will develop next w/ Sanji & Big Mom's crew problem.
    Luffy of course will want to save his crew first on top of all.

    I've caught up on the anime and I'm glad that the Dressrosa arc is winding down although I expect some kind of filler arc to occur before the Zou arc begins in the show. ^^

    I get that, but the storytelling is still not messy or complicated. A story like Game of Thrones*. We just have to wait and the entire backstory or missing pages will be explained. Dressrosa needed to have a lot. We are heading to the endgame and Luffy still didn't have anything resembling an official fleet (while we do know he has allies). That's what Dressrosa had to accomplish, and it did. We got up close with Leo, Barto, Cavendish, DonSai and lesser groups. It would be stupid to do that too late in the story. It wouldn't have worked on Fishmen Island, wouldn't work on Punk Hazard (which was the introduction to the SMILE-arc), and Dressrosa offered the best opportunity to add these characters.

    The story is nearing the ending, and all powers that be need to start being included or the story would eventually slow down by introducing groups individually each with their own arc. The Collosseum-arc was a smart move.

    *Specifically the books could be seen as rather complicated, as you get one story through several perspectives and thus it's easy to miss a detail your not paying attention to.

    Why? It's not as if the animé moves faster than the manga.
    Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-

    And I hope it's a long one too, because this anime (unlike a certain show about ninja's who's manga ended back in 2014) this anime needs it.

    The current pacing is literally atrocious.

    I only agree with Best Overall Character OP 2015: Trafalgar Law *hands down* (not a fan boy but its his year alright)

    Best Fight for me is: Law Vs Vergo

    Best new character: I like Jack

    'Funny' new character: Whitebeard jr

    For other categories, either none stands out or too many best picks

    The best fight of 2015 for me was Luffy vs Doflamingo. I liked Law vs Doflamingo a bit as well but it wasn't as satisfying given Law's hax DF powers. ^^;

    So the anime's going Gear Fourth next week.

    Place your bets on how bad Toei will manage to screw it up. But looking at the preview, I have faith.

    Nearly ever recent episode of this arc has looked like straight up garbage. I would hope they're saving their budget for G4.

    I haven't liked the animation recently, but I'm still excited to see Gear 4th in action in the anime. The only thing I'm more excited about is Kaidou's eventual anime debut.

    Capone is a savage good god. Rest easy Pekoms sweet prince you.

    Poor Sanji getting married to one of Big Mom's disgusting looking daughters, poor guy can't catch a break can he?

    So the Vinsmoke family, what the hell type of relationship can these people have with an Emperor.

    Wow Capone attacking Pekoms was messed up but knowing his devil fruit's name is cool. Sanji's wedding sounds interesting to me if only cuz now he'll get more focus. ^^;

    I don't quite get Capone's power. They're all in Capone's body now right?

    Big Mom's daughter could be pretty. Who/What on earth is the Vinsmoke family. Things are getting interesting.
