    Law stuck around for 2 arcs and was one of the most badass characters to ever appear in this manga, giving us moments like his victory over Smoker, the one over Vergo, and a pretty good flashback.

    Now he left and we get Capone, which looked like a sell-out at first, but now is a crazy troll who wants to kill yonkou for fun, makes crazy plans that might as well work somehow, forces pirates to wear suits when talking to him, and is also the best daddy in the world.

    Urouge hasn't appeared in-panel much but his legendary feats, real or meme, are known to all of us.

    The others are yet to do anything major. Because they haven't been given the chance yet. Does anybody doubt that, when the time comes, Kidd, Drake, Killer, Hawkins, Apoo and Bonnie will deliver? I don't.

    Thanks, Oda.

    There's more Urouge to come, just wait. Bonney has a huge secret behind her and the rest have a big part to play against Kaido or even Blackbeard.

    As soon as Oda had Urouge named as the Supernova who did best against Big Mom, plus having him as this casual witness to Kaido jumping, we knew meme magic was real once again. Urouge will be GOAT for real.

    Like I always say. Sabaody was the best arc in the manga's history because it CHANGED THE TRAJECTORY OF THE ENTIRE MANGA. Introducing the SN's made the One Piece world even bigger and grander and opened up so many other storylines.

    The supernovas have really proven to be relevant and great characters indeed. Watch even Bonney be cool in the future. :datass

    I think the SNs are some of the absolute best characters Oda has come up with. It's really cool he's not making any of them irrelevant, makes the story a lot more interesting.

    I can't wait to see Drake and Urouge in action. I've always said those two are among the strongest of the group.

    I still say the WB pirates were just plot food to progress Luffy, a lot more so than other characters. Ace - sacrifices, WB -- sacrificed, Marco --- gonna be sacrificed, Allied pirates ---- big time sacrifice to Weevil of all people.

    Supernovas tho are more relevant, Kidd came in strong at SA but after his face stomp from Kaido he's dropped a bit, but I figure he'll get his revenge with Luffy during Wano arc.

    Yes and no

    I love most of the Supernovae so I'm glad he's going this route but it feels like the Strawhats get shafted in the process. At least they did in Punk Hazard and Dressrosa

    I like law urouge and bonney. The rest of them i was sure they would be rivals. They seem more like allies which i dont care for. Overall i like them but they seem like they're stagnant.

    I know drake has a plan and Kidd should be a decent rival. Thiugh my guess is they will both be saved by luffy. My hope is Law and Bonney join the crew. Kidd escapes and kills an admiral. Urouge gets Enel and becomes a true rival to Luffy. Fanfic galore.

    it's kind of amazing when you think about it. if that one editor didn't tell oda to fill the otherwise too empty SA arc then everything would be drastically different now.

    Bonney interests me the most out of all of them because she's a complete mystery right now and her DF is the most essential one.

    Kidd and Drake are next in line.

    Likes of Basil, Hawkins and Apoo don't do anything for me, at all really but then again Capone was in the same band as these guys so I'm keeping my expectations low for them 3 and hope to be surprised.

    Doubt it. I think Oda always meant to introduce them, but the editor's push made him do it earlier. They were probably meant to be introduced post-skip as the super rookies that started to fuck shit up after WB's death. They have way too much thematic and story relevance to be something that Oda came up with on the spur of the moment.

    Yeah I think this is pretty much the case. It's a zero sum game as there's only so much time Oda can devote to developing characters; arcs are already getting longer and more bloated than they've been at any point in the series.

    I don't necessarily mind it when the SH's get shafted at the expense of the SN's as they're cool & interesting characters with major plot relevance however it's intolerable when they get shafted for less important side characters, e.g. Rebecca, Sai etc etc ......... it's one of the things that made the second half of DR so appalling.


    It's the truth tbh tbf. :lbj
