reindeer porn

It was a good voyage

I've watched One Piece 409-486 in the last week(ish) and there was so much crying I can't even. When I caught up two summers ago, the anime was right at Luffy landing on Amazon Lily, which was as good a stopping place as any. I read until I was caught up as well though, much farther, to the end of the Marinford arc, and I thought that knowing what happened would make it less traumatic than most arcs have been.

yeah, it made everything about four times worse. Spoilers through 486 (close to the end of Marinford if you're reading instead of watching, but I've read into the next thing so you don't have to worry about spoiling me for the very end in comments).

Collapse ) but that's OP in a nutshell. they have also made me love a skeleton and a reindeer and a cyborg. Speaking of that, Franky drinking Earl Grey was the funniest shit in the ever-loving universe.

Collapse ) This arc made me love Garp, maybe not as intensely as other characters, but he was almost the most sympathetic person there, esp when he confronts Luffy.

Collapse )

Collapse ) Jesus fucking christ, this show. It's so good at what it does. And what it does is rip my heart into tiny pieces.

It's so hard to explain to people why that's a good thing, or at least, something that doesn't prevent me from continuing to watch it. It isn't like I enjoy sad things or whatever. It really isn't sad 95% of the time, it's hilarious and action-y and full of hijinks and idiots and nakama.

Ugh, it's so good! And full of people I love enough to cry over. and they're so good at making me do exactly that ( ;_______;)
