    Expectations for 2018

    Thought it would be fitting to make a thread like this now when the year is almost over and we are looking ahead to the next year. What do you expect from OP next year?

    I hope we get a solid WCI ending, a nice mini arc and Wano finally starts.

    I really hope Oda introduces Green Bull before Wano. Will be though waiting for that for two-three more years.

    I can see 2018 going like this:
    January-march: Whole Cake ending
    April-july: Pre-Wano
    August-december: Wano

    I expect to get someway through Wano in 2018, with fights. At least, 2018 will end with the other 2 Disasters and Drake's intro.

    "I just want us to leave this arc already" has been a running theme for almost every arc post-TS bar Zou but thats a mini-arc anyway, so frankly none at all, every new arc seem to have a hype opening to it and exciting developments at the start just to have ur hopes and dreams shat on by Oda by the time the arc is halfway through.

    With what we've seen of the time-skip the only way to enjoy anything beyond this point is having extremely low expectations.

    I absolutely understand not having high expectations, but I think it's important to not have them terribly low as well. In my personal opinion, I feel like that puts you in a mindset where you might be hyper-critical of every little thing Oda does instead of just enjoying the overarching story that he's trying to tell. This isn't to say that WCI hasn't been bad, because it has been, but I don't think we should drop our expectations entirely. I mean, Zou was still good, and so were the beginning parts of Dressrosa, and, arguably, WCI as well.

    It will be Kaido's turn to get humiliated.

    I think the situation with BM had unfolded the wrong way, to take on BM and her fleet heads on like that and with a small group like the one we saw in the last chapter was something that was absolutely uncalled for at this early stage. I believe Oda was obligated to hold down BM, which would naturally be more acceptable than sacrificing a member or two from the crew in that situation. Ofc the excuse of her hunger was an ass-pull that doesn't justify this farce, even if Oda intended it to.

    The moment BM's portrayal was missed up like that without any signs of adjustments or holding back, though, it would mean that there's no guarantee we'd not see the same thing happening with Kaido.

    But as long as the battle against Kaido isn't rushed like that, he shouldn't suffer the same humiliation with BM, i think. If the BM arc was wrapped up earlier than this and not dragged to this situation, i would've been more confident with Kaido, though.

    Nailed it on the head. Taking on a Yonko with such a motley round-up was bound to bring serious problems. But the flip side is precisely the reason I don't think Wano will be as poorly written, since it'll be such a large force and the main characters should be a good deal more powerful than they are here. I mean, Luffy is going to be FM level pretty soon here. That's a great position to start Wano in, in my opinion. The other top SN (Kidd, Law, Apoo) should all be top 3 Commander level at that point. The main issue in WCI, in my opinion, is all the measures Oda has to take to allow the Straw Hats to survive. I doubt he'll be doing that nearly as much in Wano. I can only hope.
