Apparently there are dinosaurs in East blue somehow. And according to the author, people with bounties in the hundreds of millions just wander East blue. And then it went from belli currency to gold and silver coins...I stopped reading One piece after the time skip, but I don't know if that became a thing.
Also, MC is overly OP. He can get and use all devil fruits. No limitations. Unfortunately, he became stupid all of a sudden.
He is getting crew members in a similar order to Luffy as well with the navigator and swordsmen. It is lacking a bit of originality.
He even gave away the healing fruit so far to his one and only crew member. So apparently no one can get in the water on that ship. He says its for her protection, but she is a non-combatant, and if she falls in the water from not being able to protect herself, she'll die anyways.
