Yes. And, as I mentioned earlier, Oda's been separating the crew in the past two arcs. And, it's not like I don't want him to, but, I want them all to be in the same island, but in different locations, and I want him to juggle between them. When Dressrosa took place, it was very strange for me to not see Sanji for more than 50 episodes, and I'm probably gonna feel the same in this arc, not seeing Zoro or Robin for a long time.
That moment was pretty funny, seeing someone with such a stoic nature act out of character.

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

The crew is pretty big though, I feel it would be hard to give each of them screen time if they are all on the spot. Even now when half of the crew is missing I feel like some characters don't get enough attention. It is probably different in the adaptation because you get 20 minutes of time for every chapter, plenty for everyone.

Kureha, the episode where they go up the Reverse Mountain and many others =) That Zoro scene you mentioned was pretty funny. There are like hundreds of funny scenes in OP though not even going to start listing those : D

Don't  have one.

Try making specific predictions and you'll be lucky to guess 1 out of 10 right xD People put hours of work into making good guesses for future events in the story and they still have little success :p 

I have heard it many times that OP is predictable, but people who say it usually mean that strawhats will win/survive each arc. Well, that is not really a prediction, that is a reality of the genre. It is like predicting that Sherlock Holmes will solve the murder mystery by the end of the novel, of course he would. Instead, try to guess why Kaido can't die or where is the last ancient weapon Uranus is, or if any other huge elephant like Zunisha exist. I am naming topics for which there is plenty of material present in the story that people already used to make very good theories about Tongue

Oh my god. You want me to get into oda's head who came up with spypiea arc? I might have to make a trip to psych ward or something. I wouldn't be surprised if oda says that the raftel is in another dimension. Seriously

In other words you are saying One Piece is unpredictable? : P
You don't need to get into Oda's head to make theories about the topics I've mentioned, I specifically picked ones for which there are plenty of clues in the story.

My point is, this manga has this standard shounen series-like structure, but there are plenty of intricate details that make sense and can be predicted, but that requires a lot of work. Oda inserts carefully hidden hints all over his story, rewarding readers who pay careful attention, that is his style of writing. No other big shonen series I know of does that.

I agree to everything you said. But, in spite of that, it still feels weird. Pacing may also be an issue here. Because of the extended runtime for each scene, maybe there aren't enough characters in the adaptation.
Personally, I think Thriller Bark arc balanced the crew and the run-time really well.

Right. Thriller Bark didn't introduce as much non-crew characters though, right? In the Whole Cake arc we already had Carrot, Pedro and Pekoms before we even reached the island. If Oda wanted to add any more active characters, like how he did in Dressrosa, and not spend 100 chapters on this island he might have felt the need to pick only a few members of the crew for the journey. Also Sanji's team had spent like a year off-screen, they deserve extra time for themselves =)

I won't say it unpredictable. I have read true stories that are unpredictable. What about Naruto?

See, Sindar. What you are saying is 100% true, and completely logical. But, you know, this is how I feel. I can't get over the fact that I won't be seeing the other members of the crew for a long time, other than in those wanted posters in the middle. It was weird for me during Dressrosa, not seeing Sanji, Nami, and I'm glad I'm seeing them now, and it's gonna be weird not seeing Zoro, Robin, Franky.
But, I do have to commend Oda for using Carrot and Pedro in a proper way. Both of them are extremely like-able, and they don't make me say 'focus on the core crew' whenever they are on-screen.  That's something he's always able to pull off, at least in my opinion, be it with Law or (to go back a few hundred chapters/episodes), Vivi. I really liked her, for some reason.

I see =) Maybe I don't feel that way cause I occasionally re-read random parts of the manga. And I expect Zoro to play a huge role in Wano arc, so I don't mind him being off the stage for a while. 

I like what he does with side characters too. I understand why people still hold hope that Vivi will return to journey with Luffy some more.
