Damn man... they killed the magic. Or made it better. I don't know anymore.
Did Oda just do this for his kids? Was this always part of the story? It doesn't feel right. Doesn't feel powerful enough. Does not feel... like any form of Luffy I'd envisioned. The man I somewhat wanted to become. My spontaneous, powerful, spectacular inspiration to life in a lot of regards. Like free will; spontaneity; the conviction to live with no regrets.
Maybe this is just a temporary twist up of the animation though... it does get normal again. It does.
And it actually does get pretty cool. Like that gigantic punch. Maybe I'll get used to this. Maybe it'll get better...
First impression though? Shit.
