I wanted to add more text to better portray that this was a table-top RPG, but... >_>

This is spot on. I can't wait to see how you handle the rest of this arc

Don't change a thing. There is something to be said for brevity. I honestly got chills reading this page. That last line of GM works perfectly to show the tension even around the game table at this moment.

This is the moment when it is really questioned what Luffy's motives are, and what injustices he will not allow. This is the act that truly defines the strength of these characters. Yes, it can be boiled down to Devil Fruits and Haki and Awakening and what have you, but it is this conviction alone that separates the Straw Hats from their enemies. It is this that makes their enemies question where such power arises. The willingness to sacrifice your own personal quest for injustice against another--that is the source of true strength, seen clearly here. Well done.

"Aaarrgghh!"

Damn youuu. I've had 'The Very Very Very Strongest' running through my head for weeks, once I realised this part was coming up.

It finally stopped last week, and I was happy... Until I remembered that Arlong gets a new shark-hole torn open. Make it stoooooop!

...That being said, well done. Spot on. Sometimes 'Less is More'. Don't be afraid to frame tone with images and brevity.

I always considered this the best part of one piece. OP has had a lot of feels moments.. but Arlong park.. especially this scene. Just wow. Nothing quite got me as well as this did.

What about Robin/CP9 arc? That was at least on par with this scene. Especially the flag scene and Robin breaking down.

The Robin/CP9 arc is spectacular in a lot of ways... but lets not beat around the bush here, it's basically Nami's betrayal with more conspiracy and world-building, the emotional through line is beat for beat identical. X is forcefully reminded of her past, flees the Strawhats with the enemy, brokers a deal, is betrayed, tries to refuse help but ultimately asks for it, doesn't do anything combative for the rest of the arc.

That isn't to say the arc is bad. I can't get mad at an arc with THAT MUCH CRAZY AWESOME in it, or that much sheer heart annihilating tragedy. Robin's backstory is hands down the best set of story in that whole section. Still cry erry tim.

"'Nothing combative'"

I mean, if you count snapping a guy's neck and back simultaneously 'non-combative', then sure...
But I do get your point. Still, CP9 may have copied the arlong arc, but it was an incredible arc anyway so seeing it again with more epicness isn't really a problem in my book.

For me it was always Usopp and the Going Merry- that was the arc that was the most heart-wrenching, the most inspiring in some ways.

I was worried about this scene, but you handled it perfectly. Can't wait for what happens in the next strip.

I now also wonder what happens at the end of the fight with Arlong. Guess GM will lose some of his furniture, huh.

Good work man, good work.

I like that you with this scene at least haven't subverted to much what happened in the show. If this was Darths and Droids they'd have tried to twist things around somehow. Which is fine, but when it's done every time it gets kind of predictable. It's more fun when you don't know quite if it'll be like in the show or not.

In my honest opinion, the most memorable moment pre Grand Line.
