of my favorite dub lines is when Sanji saw the afro for the first time.
He said. “SO FUNKY! I CAN FEEL THAT JIVE LIKE A FIRE IN MY SOUL!”
It was so funny!
HAHAHA, oh lord, is it wrong that I can imagine Sanji saying that and meaning every single word? xD
scarredtiger said: Some of my favourite dubbed episodes here. They completely roll with the afro and the blacksploitation, and its just so *FUNKY*
That’s it! The theme was 80s blacksploitation. Everything was soul-filled and funky. Gawd. xD There seems to be a consensus that 217-218 are hilarious dubs.
amazingbedhead said: Watching these two episodes reminded me of watching Looney Toons as a kid. No one does slapstick humor like Oda!
Good catch! The slapstick was strong in 217-218. They even had giant boxing glove punching machines! I mean, come on! xD
blogquantumreality said: Ah
yes, the Afro of Strength :D Luffy’s battle with Foxy was fun to watch,
if making me considerably anxious because of the Noro Noro Beam. :O
That Noro Noro beam could have been something special if a more ruthless character had got their hands on that fruit. If Luffy hadn’t found that shard of mirror things might have turned out differently. Foxy gave him a good match (though it was heavily skewed in his favour).
meheartonepiece said: Nah
the foxy fight is canon, just that in the manga it’s the third game of
the first Davy back fight. Btw, did you notice the hat Usopp was
wearing? ;) ;) ;)
Ahhh… okay. I think I get the order of the games now. Everything makes more sense (and Luffy is much more in-character). I didn’t notice the hat Usopp was wearing? Is it a reference to something?
saisai-chan said: the fight on the ship is NOT filler!! it’s totally canon!
Thanks! Everything makes more sense now (not to mention Luffy’s actions seem more in-character). ^_^
greatninjadragon said: no the afro fight is canon. I just meant the two games covered in the last two episodes.
Got you! So the roller-rink race and the sneaking up on Tonjit game were filler? Everything makes much more sense now. xD

more thing, eventually you’ll meet a character you’ll absolutely LOVE
and works an epic afro….even though he’s a bit perverted
Cannot wait to meet this awesome, fro’d character. He’s not the shipwright, is he?
Don’t tell me! Argh, why do I invite spoilers?
martyslittleusedblog said: Oh! Ah, the fight on the ship IS canon. The canon games are as
follows: boat race (except only with Nami, Robin, and Usopp), that
pirate-basketball-thing, and the Luffy vs. Foxy fight.
arc is almost over, but I should warn you, the arc ends with filler
bullcrap in the anime, whereas in the manga, it ends with the Straw Hats
meeting someone VERY, VERY important (they do meet him later in the
anime, but it’ll take a couple more filler arcs…(HEAVY SIGH))…
There is filler bullcrap? Is this skippable? I know I have to watch two episodes in particular to meet this important someone, but if possible, I’d rather skip the bullcrap. :)
