    Master Nekomamushi cracks me up! I love him :)

    Brooks' song was good too. Even though not too much happened, it was still a decent episode.

    Freaking filler.

    More like NOTHING AT ALL happened.
    [6min to start+ST fighting the Yonko ''Queen Bee'' and her bees!] WTH is that.I didn't mind the extended song,that was nice to hear indeed,but making a episode out of 6 manga pages,not even a half-chapter...WTF.

    That Chopper's scene was hilarious tho!
    I'd love to see Chopper flirting ,using the muscle humanoid form with a Johnny Bravo style. xD

    Yeah... not much happened this episode although i can't really blame TOEI for that since, at this point, not much happened in the manga either. The filler felt a bit forced and the song was underwhelming, i expected more from it even though it wasn't super bad. Apparently Brook has some kind of backup band hiding in the bushes because he clearly was only playing guitar. Seeing Pekoms was great and i really like his voice actor. The Nekomamushi part was well done. Can't wait until thing will start to escalate!

    The filler was a necessity to end with the appropriate cliffhanger. The song was a great composition though. Not going to be apparent to non-Japanese watchers since it was a beautiful fusion of traditional Japanese singing/music with modern music. A big part of the budget probably went into the song composition, but makes sense with it being the main focus of the chapter (the comedic points were the other main focus, but that's just the seiyuu doing their job). I expected Bink's Sake to have a similar production since it seems like it will continue to come up over the rest of the series. So I was pleasantly surprised since Bink's Sake was so underwhelming. Another cultural aspect is image songs and how seriously Japanese take them. Nekomamushi will probably see a huge jump in his popularity rankings with all of this.

    I know, i don't think it's bad that they put in a filler. The whole thing just felt a bit forced :tongueclosed:

    I just expected the song to be more sinister, like the short strums Brook played while telling Sanji's story. This was just a boring sounding song to me and it didn't fit the vibe at all. It also felt a bit weird that there suddenly were other instruments than the guitar. They should have kept things simple, this was way too fancy.

    @Tony Although music is a universal language, the intricacies are definitely cultural specific. Ultimately the manga and anime are both meant for the Japanese audiences, so it's only fitting that the sound tracks are also tailored to their preferences/taste. From a business standpoint, it's quite genius on Toei's part in that they make the episode memorable for their target audience and create a huge marketing opportunity. The song is pretty much a pop/one hit wonder, which in turn should allow for huge merchandise sales for Nekomamushi related stuff (even the CDs/songs are HUGE in Japan; Just like they obsess over character details like blood type, birthday, etc. they equally love character songs/image songs). If anything Bink's Sake got Toei a pretty penny which is why they put extra money for a legitimate composition. Sure it doesn't make rational sense for a support band, but it makes sense in terms of a quality product and desire for marketing.
