It’s taken over 200 episodes but the Straw Hat Pirates have finally made it. Not to their destination of course, but in to the fantastic world of widescreen. The first episode of the latest set is the conclusion to the Navarone arc, but after that the colours are brighter and the image stretchier, just like Luffy himself. This allows for more of the brilliant artwork to be seen, and also lets the action sequences take place on a wider canvas. We’ve all come to take widescreen for granted, so this transition is a stark reminder of just how much more we are treated to.
Unfortunately the latest arc isn’t exactly the
