Re: [Simulcast] One Piece Episode #492 Review
This episode was surprisingly well-paced considering how little actually happened, and I agree that it's nice to have some more comedic moments after all the heavy drama we've had lately. (Well, some decently written comedy that doesn't completely destroy the mood like all those Buggy-fillers during the war did, that is... I got really sick of those after a while.)
That being said, the highlight of this episode must be the new opening, which I like more and more every time I see it. It seems like Toei has learned their lesson after the oh-so-unfitting Kaze wo Sagashite, and are now actively working to make their openings fit with the arcs they're played over, and I for one think this song is much more memorable than One Day, and the actual opening footage also has a lot more of an impact. Loved the flashbacks to how all the Straw Hats joined Luffy.
...This is a signature.
