WT*^#&^#)^@#)(*&*!!!! That means he is purposefully taking out content that was supposed to be covered. We literally made no progress in the plot and we magically jumped 10% completion since his last estimate (sure there was some legit manga content, but most of it was the half a year of B.S.). Depressing...but at least I know what to expect...I will say that we all lose as fans if he is taking other parts out just because of the WCI B.S. changes (I would assume the war on Big Mom is shorter and probably has to do with the Jinbei teaser). The optimistic side of me thinks that might be the best situation. Edit: I just figured out what I'm gonna comment/ask of Oda through twitter...I think as fans we deserve to know why the sudden change, especially if we are missing/shortening key stuff. Thank god for kanji. Gonna cram as much into the character restriction. I'm really surprised about all the Kishimoto comments. They had a huge feud (and actually on Oda's part since Oda was jealous of Naruto's popularity overseas). Glad to hear that they became good friends over the past 6 or so years. He is correct in that the statistics say it is very unlikely for any WSJ series to gain so much popularity to stay in serialization for 15+ years though. I'm hoping for raw text since if this is truly an accurate translation, he is changing the war against Blackbeard. Hopefully he just means more underlings to the Grand Fleet. I guess Oda has to change his support for those that get less love (it was Buggy the entire time prior to this interview).
