      Shame. SB doesn't look or feel half as interesting as B&S does. Pity people feel the need to mock it so (or they simply cannot tell the difference, which, also, is a shame)

      I do hope we get some B&S beta action going this year....still kind of put off that the actual release window is 2014 .___.

      - Lith. ...Mislink.

    2. Napsys

      Napsys

      because of boobs, except in B&S the characters arent completely naked..

  9. Thought this was pretty epic since I ♥ OP and this music :) Plus this dude made the two into a pretty awesome vid xD

      Zora

      I love One Piece too!

      Good music :3

  10. I noticed some Russians on the site, but why do they just keep repeating the same things? D: One just says interesting topic and the other one just keeps saying he doesnt agree with the author(?)

  12. Lynnnn :big_smile: Glad they decided to finally update the males! But it's kinda sad that there's no really cool outfits, they're mostly just remakes of the female versions and really cutesy :sob:
  13. Valentine's Day Doboks!

    No male outfits?? :pudency:
  14. But wouldn't it be unfair for the Kun not to have one? All the other races already do. :sweats:
