One Piece Chapter. 887 Is Out

Summary to follow:

The chapter primarily focuses on Sanji, Bege and the cake, Luffy is not seen, the Sunny is only seen for a couple pages at the end.

Cover page finishes the martial arts club arc. They sail off in their new ship. The text reads simply "We don't care whether you make peace or kill eachother."

Bege continues the assault bringing his ship to land where it's revealed on land it turns into a tank. Oven exclaims he didn't know it could do that, Bege gloats that he'd never show all of his cards to people he intends to betray.

They worry about how they're going to get the cake onto the ship, but then Sanji flies it into the air holding it up with one leg while lifting himself with the other. Pudding nosebleeds so hard she looks like she's bee shot and passes out. Chiffon is reunited with Bege.

Oven stands in the way of the ship and says he'll stop it. Bege comically simply runs him over with a "crunch" sound effect. It seems they've escaped, but then the water heats up and all the fish start floating dead to the surface. Yes, more BM crew fuckery, Oven's heat powers work on the ocean.

Poun D. shows up out of know where and breaks a bat over Oven's head in what becomes a surprisingly gut-wrenching scene. It distracts Oven who is enraged for long enough that they can escape. Poun D. laments that Big Mom never even once let him hug his daughters. That he was king, but as soon as she had the babies she divorced him and took his kingdom. Bege's son somehow knows Poun D. is his grandpa and smiles at him. Poun D. smiles back and has a tearful moment, straightening his tie and screaming at the top of his lungs that he wants to congratulate Chiffon on her wedding, happy that he got to see his grandson even if he doesn't know his name, and hopes he has a happy life and grows up feeling lovePost too long.

Alternatively, the numbers could be rankings instead of order of birth.



No I just checked and it's definitely based on age. Chiffon and Lola are 22 and 23. Seeing as they've both fallen out of favor with Big Mom and neither of them has devil fruit powers, I find it hard to believe BM would rank them both above Pudding. On top of that all the other daughters below Pudding look like small children.


If that were the case, Oda must hate Sanji and want him to suffer.

<Sanji-kun... I have a secret I must reveal to you...

>Is it about your age? If it's that you're 13, I'm totally cool with it.

(13 is the age of consent in Japan)

<Oh, n-no Sanji, you see... I have a little something... extra...

>Is it your third eye? I already told you I think it's beautiful...

<No... I-i-it would be better if I just show you...

Cut to a wideshot of the building catching fire to the sound of "HELLS MEMORIES INFINITE!" and Sanji frantically running out through a wall over the water and straight onto the Sunny.

I really do hope that's not where this is going. Because that would pretty much seal that he's going to be a full-fledged Newkama by the end of the series. Homo blood injection, brainwashed into crossdressing by an island full of them, trained in their culinary arts and fighting styles...



Being Sanji is suffering. I don't think Oda would make him suffer that hard though.



Shanks is too much of a fan favorite to do a heel turn. What’s most likely going to happen with him is a joke in the last few chapters where he gives up being a Yonko, passing the title on to someone else probably Buggy, just because it would be a joke that I could see Oda pulling, just pat him on the back and say “you’re the man now, clown”



A lot of people like to predict his death, but I think it's so expected that it simply can't happen. It'd definitely put Luffy into a next level fury though.

This episode wasn't all that fun either.

Could they be losing steam?



The quiz and taxi segments were pretty funny, but the jar part went on for way too long and was too predictable.

The UMA segments are awful too.




The show has been pretty consistently hit or miss since the very beginning, but somehow it's just charming enough for me to keep watching.



The first season was definitely better though. It had more impact and the humor was just funnier. The staff seems to be pretty much the same for both seasons, but it feels like the second season is made by people who only sort of understood what made the first season good but not really.




There have been a couple really funny sketches, like Totty and Osomatsu at the mixer and the skit they opened the season with, but it's been way more sparse than the first season. Between the artstyle and the OP/ED there's enough visual flair to keep things interesting, but they're really off their game.

I just finished watching this and reading the manga and I love and hate it. My major complaints are the characters don't develop and the relationship turns hot and cold but ultimately stays static. It also doesn't deliver on things that they started in the first episode/chapter, e.g., the city and the consummation of the relationship.

Other than those problems, it was blissfully wonderful.

It's a shame Hoods Entertainment, the studio of behind MGX, stop doing stellar ecchi shows afterwards. Before MGX they did Qwaser and Manyuu Hikenchou. The studio seem to have real talent but isn't really used that well, apart from the recent Drifters show.



This has one of the most unappealing artstyles in a romance manga i've ever seen.



After reading the manga first, when I watched the anime later, somehow I have developed a dislike to Urabe's voice. It's only me, or was it really her seiyuu a miss for the role?

>not wanting to drink gallons of spit from a cute girl




I'll give you the spit-vomiting, as from my perspective it was done for the sake of connecting the drool to an physiological and emotional reaction, but not the concept (of the drool) in its entirety. I guess I just have a higher threshold.

How much different from normal chess is shogi? Would a genius at chess be able to stand up to someone who knows how to play shogi. I've seen that they have similarities with the basic setup and some pieces, but also differences with rules concerning certain things like how to move.



There is a lot of carry over, and someone who has played a lot of chess should be able to jump in fairly well. The biggest difference is that you can place pieces you have captured anywhere on the board with a few exceptions. So as the game goes on, instead of becoming simpler like in chess, it increases in complexity.



The expired christmas cake said MC had no interest in girls right before this too. Obviously MC has no interest in expired goods and enjoys the unmatched freshness of a first grader while keeps his favorite, Ai, for all night pleasure. I hope MC ends up with Ai at minimum and this little harem at best.


There are many. Shiro is more of a general purpose model while Ai is shogi exclusive.



The winner is most probably gonna be Ginko

>It's pretty much Occult Chuuni Nazis fighting one another with a couple waifus sprinkled in, no?

There's some fun dialog when the characters are just talking with each other like pals, there's a few really nice dramatic highpoints. But yeah it's mostly battle, a lot of it is pretty fun but the author is a terrible overwriter and has a tendency to try and stuff too much into a climax to make it the most epic and over the top thing possible, when scaling things down and maybe not having three or four cataclysmic magic battles going on simultaneously, and just focusing on the one, would be better. Also too edgy for its own good, especially early on when the story feels all gloom and doom, it actually lightens up the further you get into it. I'm just starting Himuro's route now but I've read the other three and I can say it was worthwhile for me and the highpoints were good I doubt I'll reread it any time soon, not for a decade at least, because of how overwritten it was. Were I a slower reader I don't think I would have enjoyed it half as much as I did. The soundtrack at least is excellent.

There's an actual existing fashion term for it already: Nazi chic. For some reason, is mainly in Japan where the outrage for it is nearly nonexistent.



>the author is a terrible overwriter

thats the translator


Did the project crash and burn, or what?



I guess 'overwrite' is the wrong term, I wasn't referring to the quality of the prose, overall it's nice and can be quite good in places. I meant in terms of length, there are lots of unnecessary paragraphs, and even scenes, that could have been cut, that would have made the story flow more smoothly. And I think for a VN of this scale that it not be any more longer than it already has to be.

The Rival Star Arc is barely just begining in the manga so it's probably going to be the closing hook in season 2.

>Hyouryuu Net Cafe

Protagonist visits a net cafe on his way home from work. Here he reunites with his teenage crush after many years. He decides to sleep in since there is heavy rain outside. When he wakes up the net cafe is suddenly standing in a strange marshland. Where are they and will they be able to get back? It's made by Oshimi, so expect his typical, weak-willed protag.

Someone picked up the translations again after it was put on hold over a year ago.

How is the Guyver manga or anime? Recently watched the second movie and thought it was a pretty neat little experiment into western toku and figured I'd see how the source material holds up.


I can say that the early 90s OVA is pretty shit, with awful animation and twice as long as it should be.

The first episode just now and I can say with authority that the anime remains true to it's origins as a self-professed shitpost 4-koma manga.


I'm fairly confident that Sam Hyde contributed in making this anime; it's absolutely chaotic and Avant Garde. One is confronted by the looking question, "Is this the future of Anime?"

I'm sure the translations will take time because it's all very contextual and rapid in the change of content.


In all seriousness, it was a slight let down for all the hype and ad campaigns they had. The gags were from the mangas, but they repeated the same gags in part A and part B but with different voice actors. They parodied a lot of other animes and tropes, and the initial shock value is worth watching.

What is there to get? Most of the gags are pretty straightforward. The only one that didn't work was the beach one because it made a lot less sense as an anime.

You do have to be Japanese to get a lot of stuff. The subs being shit doesn't help much.



To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Pop team epic. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of otaku culture most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Popuku's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into her characterisation - her personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike pop team epic truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Popuku's existencial catchphrase "Are you upset?," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as bkub's genius unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools... how I pity them. And yes by the way, I DO have a pop team epic tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.



Replace Narodnaya Volya and that Fathers and Sons thing into something like Yukio Mishima and some deep-ass Japanese literature and it's perfect.

Let's have a nice thread for Kaiji and Akagi, as well as Fukumoto's other works. What's your personal favourite? Also, why does everybody not like Zero's manga? Sure, I don't like it too much either, but I can't articulate a reason why, I just don't like it as much as Kaiji and Akagi.

There's a DS game of dubious quality that deals with the first arc. I've heard that the PS2 Akagi game though is pretty good if you're into regular mahjong.


I just don't see it. The chapter about Kurosawa giving in to the two artists' demands and longing for touching their whole bodies was more in line with the tragicomedy of old Kurosawa. Him being the ambassador for two Americans though is just stretching it.



VR when



My favorite by far, even being one of my favorite shows of all time.


Holds a special place in my heart for being an great show when I didn't even know how the fuck the Mahjong is played the entire time I watched the series.

Never read any of the other series though. However, All Outs is pretty similar to Akagi and is a fun watch if you like that style.



New Kurosawa was frustrating to read.



I like The Legend of The Strongest Man Kurosawa because i identify with him.
