I remember this episode and the previous from when they originally aired. I know because I remember being very very scared of the Jeremiah Zombie in the Old House menacing Angelique. I was only 6 1/2 watching on small black white TV, but when I remember Dark Shadows, I remember these zombie/ghost scenes, Even though I put a pillow over my face for much of it.
The eleventh season of the One Piece anime series was produced by Toei Animation, and directed by Hiroaki Miyamoto based on Eiichiro Oda's manga by the same name. The majority of the season covers the \"Sabaody Archipelago\" story arc, which deals with the Straw Hats preparing to enter Fishman Island by having their ship coated for undersea travel. During their stay, they meet an old enemy Hatchan, his friends Keimi and Papaggu, and the first mate of Gold Roger, Silvers Rayleigh, as well as 9 rookie pirates known as the \"11 Supernovas\". In an incident involving the auction of Keimi, the crew and the pirates are attacked by top members of the Marines, including Bartholomew Kuma, one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. The final two episodes continue the \"History Drama Boss Luffy\" story established in the fourth TV Special and featured in the ninth season.
The season aired on Fuji Television from December 21, 2008 to June 28, 2009 and consisted of 26 episodes. The first two DVD compilations of the series were released on January 7, 2011 with two individual volumes released monthly and the last DVD compilations were released on March 2, 2011. This season's episode count and title were announced in the One Piece Movie 10 Guide Book, \"One Piece-Pia\".
The season uses two different pieces of theme music. The first opening, a cover version of the first opening theme \"We Are!\" (ウィーアー!) by Hiroshi Kitadani, is performed by TVXQ, as \"We Are! (Animation One Piece 10th Anniversary Ver.)\", who also performs the season's second opening theme, titled \"Share the World\", starting with episode 395 onwards.
JJ Outlaw: [00:55:16] Well, I always enjoyed the dynamic of coaching basketball. I loved having a smaller staff, but everybody having an input on the game plan from an offensive defense standpoint and the development piece of it.
Now that One Piece has finally reached its 1,000th episode, let's take a look back and admire how far the anime has come. Ever since 1999, the shonen behemoth has been serving up great episodes. Which ones are the very best is a matter of personal preference, but there are some that really stand out above the rest.
From epic fights to tragic moments, these 20 episodes are among the very best the series has to offer. If you don't see a personal favorite on here, that doesn't mean it's not incredible or deserving of recognition. Let's celebrate the greatness of One Piece by looking back at a handful of its greatest moments.
There are a lot of episodes that demonstrate friendship and loyalty, but few do it better than this one. After Robin tells her life story, she explains that while she likes the Straw Hats, she believes that they will ultimately betray her.
It's rare to see the Straw Hats endure a total defeat, so when it does happen, it's noteworthy. In this episode, Kuma is able to send them blasting off to different locations, separating the formerly inseparable crew.
This episode also ends up being easily the most empathetic the show has ever gotten in its fascination with gender. It depicts Kuina, the prodigal child swordsman frustrated with the knowledge that when they become adults, the difference in strength between her and Zoro will increase dramatically. This is a moment for a young Zoro to take his female opponent seriously, and whatever thematic baggage is left over by her death is eventually picked up by Tashigi in the present day. This is the tender side of One Piece at its best.
What stands out about this episode is its great mixture of tones, from funny to serious and finishing up with a sense of foreboding doom as we're threatened by the true strength of a new enemy. Right off the bat, the direction really pops, partially because our point of view is firmly with Vivi, and we get to see the Straw Hats at their zaniest from an outsider's perspective. Compared to the episodes surrounding it, the art style cranks up a notch, and the designs really breathe under the cool moonlight with some great comedic timing. This is the kind of episode I turn to when I just want to take in some of One Piece's world.
This is another great Zoro episode that puts us in the middle of the climactic battle between the Straw Hats and Baroque Works. Zoro's opponent is Mr. 1, who isn't really a swordsman but a guy who can turn his whole body into blades. Not only does Mr. 1's Dice-Dice Fruit allow for some creativity from the anime, but this episode manages to deliver one of the coolest fights in the whole series. It's bloody, raw, and Zoro throws a house at a guy.
Like most casual anime fans, I knew the general idea behind One Piece's story, but I didn't seriously start paying attention until the Funimation dub took over on Cartoon Network, and I kept watching for the novelty of seeing One Piece with the cast of DBZ playing all the main parts. It was only a novelty for a short time, however, and I was immediately swept up in the spirit of the series. That infectious sense of adventure doesn't come without some fun and compelling drama, and Luffy vs. Bellamy was so satisfying that it got me to jump straight to marathoning the series. This is the episode that made me a One Piece fan.
Every time I revisit this episode, I forget that it gives us not just Luffy vs. Bellamy, but also most of the Jaya arc's world-building. This is our first time meeting the Five Elder Stars, Donquixote Doflamingo, Bartholomew Kuma, and the first time we get to see old-man Whitebeard in the flesh. It's become tradition that the series will unload its most exciting exposition and big picture storytelling in the changeover between big arcs, and episode 151 is one of the earliest and most important examples of this.
Ever been curious to see Mamoru Hosoda's One Piece movie, only to be disappointed by its lack of official release in North America Have no fear, because he directed an episode that you can stream legally online!
This is the only filler episode on this list, but that's okay because the G-8 arc is by far the best filler arc in the series, worth watching even if you intend to skip most anime-only content. Even within a great mini-adventure about the Straw Hats getting split up and trying to escape an impenetrable naval base, episode 199 jumps out at you with its direction. Hosoda's animation style and Oda's designs have so much chemistry, and the whole episode moves in interesting ways that fluidly connect each shot to the next. Even before I knew it was Hosoda's work, this episode was exceptionally inventive and fun.
As for its place in the big picture story, this episode's an important step in Jimbei's relationship with the Straw Hat pirates, and it establishes the Ryugu Kingdom's intent to join the World Government and attend the Reverie, a heavily built-up political event that's due any day now in the manga. This episode coming out on DVD recently helped remind me how much I loved it, but even since it first aired, it's always been a favorite of mine.
This is a real stand-out episode for fight animation in the series, because it's so much more physical than usual. Even with Smoker and Vergo's powers flying every which way, the impact comes down to their good ole fists. The personal investment between two marines duking it out is already pretty strong, but the great choreography and style puts it over the edge, and that alone would put an episode like this on my radar.
And thus, the most recent episode on the list. This is another piece of a one-hour special, but the filler-heavy first half (episode 807) is almost entirely disposable. This is the fourth time, after Nami, Usopp, and Robin, that a Straw Hat has threatened to leave the crew, and frankly it's the least threatening of them all. If we were looking at just the core story as told by the manga, Sanji leaving the crew gets a smirk and an eye roll.
But this is a case where I believe the anime significantly improves on the story. The only other time that Luffy got into a serious fight with a crewmate was Usopp, and if I was watching Whole Cake Island for the first time through the anime, I would have found this episode profoundly effective. Most of the episode is just Sanji beating on Luffy and Luffy playing pacifist, but what really elevates the material is the music and performances. There are tracks I don't think I've ever heard in the show before that underscore the story wonderfully, and Mayumi Tanaka does some of her best work as Luffy out of the entire series. Much more than the fight, my favorite part is the final scene where Luffy is shouting his impassioned speech as Sanji departs and tries to hold back his tears. It's the kind of scene where the moment by moment experience is so delicate that the right piano note on the right shot will get you welling up. That's true for a lot of scenes in One Piece, but this is the first time in ages where it felt like the anime was truly trying to up its game.
So those are the episodes I think are the most worth revisiting! Obviously, with a series this long, I'm bound to have missed a few or omitted enormously important episodes in this top ten list. If you have any favorites that absolutely need to be celebrated, shout them from the rooftops! (And by rooftops, I mean the forums.)
Butter has fat-solubles, vitamins A, D and K, important trace minerals, arachidonic acid, cholesterol, and the Wulzen factor. These are just a few of the reasons butter is better.
