    Whenever a new one comes, everything becomes a mess.

    Most about powerlevel.Cant wait for Buggys Databook,where it is claimed that he has become almost as strong as a yonkou.

    Thing is, all of this is irrelevant. It's either something we already know or assumptions/ideas of these editors (like Vista=Mihawk thing or Catarina being more dangerous than Big Mom) or something completelly useless. If there's some new info crucial to the story, it wouldn't be revealed through databook. If you want "OP databook", read each SBS, because you're sure that all what you'll find there have been written by Oda himself.

    Databook is a low effort cashgrab, smart move by the guys who sell it.

    Not Oda's fault that the fanbase is 90% tier specialist or OBD nerds

    The ones who fail to comprehend the db are at fault not the author. Nothing in the databooks contradicted the characters cannonical power standing. Learn to read the db in the way it should be read.

    Databooks aren't the problem, some people's understanding of its content is.

    Trust me, most if not all do have the same problem, the only difference is the tier list.

    As I said, over and over again.

    Databooks are semicanon, because Oda's editors are the ones in charge.

    As long as they don't contradict the main series everything in them is fine. We knew Shanks and Mihawk were rivals. We knew Mihawk was yonkou level. This was told to us in the story. We knew Kizaru was lightspeed. The only thing we did not know was that Akainu had the highest offensive capabilities, and Whitebeard was considered the strongest during Rogers time. And even then it does not contradict the series because we were told numerous times that Gold Roger and Whitebeard were equals according to the people who knew them.

    The only thing this hurts is the people who come up with their own weird headcanon to justify their character erections.

    That isn´t really news either. I don´t understand why people are so surprised about this?

    The claim that Sabo is dead totally shits on the authenticity of them.

    If that glaring error didn’t exist and they had some kind of “Approved by Oda himself” labeling, I’d treat it as canon. While certain concrete info you can take as canon like new bounties, more fluffy content like descriptions shouldn’t be treated as gospel.


    But that’s just one man’s opinion.

    That wasn't an error though. It lists Sabo as dead because that is the in-verse fact from our pov. Most things in the databook are just a re-collection of what the reader has seen and heard in 1 book.

    Mihawk is pirate king level but he can't find raftel because he don't know to read the poneglyphs.

    Well yeah it depends on perspective. I take the databook statement as "the most lethal devil fruit". And that really isn't spectacular news.

    Databooks are only as powerful as you let them become. I don't consider them to be canon, and disregard them entirely. They have no hold over me. The real fight isn't on here - it's in your mind

    You may personally not like something as canon, but it ultimately it is not up to you. Oda made if canon. So when it comes to debates and resources this is the info you used.

    Everything this databook told us we knew.

    Maybe they meant he is dead inside. You know, he is just a blonde Ace. Sabo doesn't exist.
