SideReel Power Ranking: Week of August 7, 2016

Like Daenerys Targaryen's unrelenting march toward victory, Game of Thrones continues to reign atop SideReel's Power Ranking, a weekly look at the TV shows garnering the most attention on But after a predictable finale, The Bachelorette has dropped down (and off of) our list as quickly as the typical showmance contestant falls in "love." That's made room for HBO's critically acclaimed The Night Of to make its first appearance on the list, in the fifth position. Also new this week: One Piece . The anime series (we are diverse AF), which began airing in 1999, landed in the eighth spot.       Top 10 Shows on SideReel: August 7 - August 13   1 - Game of Thrones   2 - Keeping Up With the Kardashians ▲   3 - Mr. Robot   4 - Power ▲▲   5 - The Night Of ▲▲   6 - The Flash   7 - Pretty Little Liars   8 - One Piece ▲▲   9 - Ballers   10 - Grey's Anatomy ▲ p { text­align: justify; }

‘One Piece’ Anime Updates On Upcoming Arcs

We’ll keep this as spoiler free as possible, but at this stage we’re dealing with a series closing in on episode 750 so some are always possible. With One Piece finishing up the two year long Dressrosa Arc within the next couple of weeks, a very long but really strong arc, the show will be moving into a new anime-original arc that’s designed to lead into the One Piece Film: Gold event this summer. An official start date of June 26th has been set for the named Silver Mine arc now. We’ve seen these kinds of arcs before as they provide setup for the film and serve as a way to draw audiences to see the story concluded in the theater. READ MORE...

‘One Piece Film: Gold’ Anime Features Gets TV Tie-in Special

With the big One Piece film out this summer in late July, it’s no surprise that there will be a lead-in to some of the background elements of it on TV to provide some continuity for fans – as well as essentially serving as one really long commercial to get people into the theater. Set for a July 16th, 2016 debut at 9pm JST, One Piece: Heart of Gold will arrive to connect the two works. The special is directed by Tatsuya Nagamine based on the screenplay by Tsutomu Kuroiwa.

One Piece Episode #742 Anime Review

Digging into the past is a hallmark of this show since it wants to make sure the characters we’re dealing with are fleshed out. That can extend arcs a good bit at times but when we get to places like this in them it adds a lot because everything we need was already seed (looking at you, Naruto). With a lot set up in regards to Kyros and Rebecca at this point, among others, being able to just move into their story with the way it’s unfolded in this epilogue works well. It may add a little more touch of nuance here and there but by and large it’s given us everything we need to know so that it flows well. That you get sa invested in the supporting cast as you do is definitely a credit to the series and the way it operates. READ MORE...

One Piece Episode #577 Anime Review

Not surprisingly, the return to the surface after all the time on Fish-Man Island led the Straw Hats to a lot of action. Meeting Lily brought them into something that spoke pretty well to Luffy with rescuing her father before he ends up at Impel Down, but it all gets complicated along the way because of the arrival of the Neo Navy and their intent to wipe out all the pirates while coming across a bit as pirates themselves. Add in the Navy itself and it made for a confusing and chaotic series of fights that started that almost leaves you unsure of who to really root for in a way as there are bound to be many reveals yet to be made. Luffy of course just does what needs to be done in the immediate sense, which once again leaves Nami trying to figure out the bigger picture. READ MORE...

One Piece Episode #567 Anime Review

With the forward progress of the show going at the pace that it has,things went big in the previous episode with the fight between Hordy and Luffy that let Luffy really show off a bit. His intensity was center stage and it showed just how much he values a promise that he makes. While it didn’t have the kind of really big feel to it that I wanted in some ways, it was effective since it tied so many of the other fights together at the same time to bring it all to conclusion with the varied main character fights that were going on. And driving all of it for Luffy is that of stopping the Noah from destroying the island as he intends to fulfill his promise at all costs. It all works well, but it’s something that just felt a little too anti-climactic after all this time. READ MORE...
