your right. usopp didn't feel guilty at all.... i can't think of any reason he had to feel guilty now that you mention it. what was i thinking. his lack of an apology is the perfect reason for my suspicion of him feeling guilty to go away. thanks for enlightening me with flawless logic.... how could someone feel guilty for taking advantage of an entire village's hopes and dreams to glorify himself only to send them all to hell when his own mortality is questioned... (end sarcasm) i'll agree to disagree then, if this is a situation where you really don't see someone having a reason to feel guilty of something then your sense of right and wrong is even more twisted than mine and i don't really have a sense of right an wrong. the thing that bothers me the most about usopp is that he is in the mugiwara crew. a crew filled with the idea to protect everyone they meet from anything and he is only concerned for himself. to me usopp is just a shoe that doesn't fit anymore.

wisdom we already know he forgot about robin and robin doesn't hold all of usopp's brave memories. usopp's transition began long before that with jango and even into arlong park, and even though he still can remember that he acts like a coward to the extreme.

So now that the chapter has OFFICIALLY been released I can comment on this. This chapter showed a prominent info about Sugar's powers. I am now more convinced than ever that Usopp acted the way he did because of Robin being turned into a toy.

Let's look at the flashback from Kyros' point of view first. We had this one panel of Kyros, Scarlett and Rebecca looking at the palace on fire.


Now let's take a look at the SAME scene from the flashback based on Rebecca's point of view, from chapter 721.


So not only Sugar's powers lets you forget about the person, but it also changes what really happened.
Usopp was always and still is a coward. This is something that I believe will not change. Usopp's bravery significantly escalated in Water 7 with the whole Robin situation. So if he forgot about Robin, in his mind, did he and the Strawhats go to Enies Lobby? Them going to Enies Lobby in the first place was to rescue Robin. There is this possibility that the Strawhats don't remember going to Enies Lobby and battling CP9.

One comment about the last double page spread: Hilarious.

I think I get what your saying. Your saying that because robin was turned into a toy it was like she never existed, so Usopp lost the development he gained in Water Seven. I would kind of argue that Usopp had his own development that was separate from Robin. I always felt like he developed after the fight with Luffy. He showed bravery during that fight. I think the main thing that upsets me is that I was disappointed in Usopp for running away. It was always this thing where even if he was scared he would never abandon someone. At best he would hide and think of a strategy. So from now on I'm gonna have this thing in the back of my head wondering if he will abandon someone again and that's not something I want to think about with Usopp.

If you look back, you'll notice that Usopp ran away against Chu in Arlong Park, then stepped up because of what Nami went through. In Alabasta, he tried to run away, but Miss Merry Christmas caught him, then he stepped up because she insulted Luffy. Usopp most of the time tries to run away. The way I see it is that Usopp has never stepped up to defend someone other than a Straw Hat or Kaya if you count him stepping up to Kuro, until now.

ya i know he forgot robin but the way he acted makes me think he wouldn't care if he remembered her either way.

Wait, do you really read One Piece. If so, you would know one of the biggest things promoted in One Piece is protecting your Nakama and which pirate crew embodies that the most? You got it, the Straw Hats. Also, did you really say he wouldn't care? Do you forget Sogeking? Do you forget the Arlong Park arc?
