I love Sanji and Usopp's facial hair, but I think it'll be a while before Usopp's and Zoro's outfits grow on me.

I don't really like Sanji's because it doesn't match his hair color. :/

As far as the swords go, he lost his other sword he bought in Loguetown. The cursed one has the unique pattern. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_sf5smizaY
The white sword he will obviously always have. And he has the super heavy, super strong said to be able to survive being stepped on by an elephant or a dinosaur or something black sword from the zombie.

I thought the cursed one was the one that got eaten by a dude with the rust-rust fruit in the Water Seven arc.

I'd have to go back and check, but I thought the Rust guy took out the "not quite as high quality but still pretty good" sword he got as a reward for buying the cursed sword.

This is getting a bit silly. He has 3 swords at the moment:

Meito; Wado Ichimonji (formerly belonged to Kuina)
Sandai Kitetsu (formerly belonged to Ippon-Matsu)
Meito; Shusui (formerly belonged to Ryuma)

http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Roronoa_Zoro/Abilities_and_Powers

He's had previously:
Katana x2 (both were destroyed by Dracule Mihawk)
Johnny and Yosaku's swords (returned to them after the battle)
Meito; Hana Arashi (Sogeking handcuffed to Zoro holding on to Yubashiri. It stopped being used when Sogeking was unlocked from Zoro)
Meito; Yubashiri (formerly belonged to Ippon-Matsu, destroyed at Enies Lobby by Shu, now resting on Thriller Bark)
Marine cutlass x2 (the first one was destroyed by Shu, and the second one was consequently left behind after the immediate battle at Enies Lobby)

Just copy pasted this all from the above link.

You are absolutely correct on that. Zoro still has the cursed sword.

edit: CubanMissile: I bet Zoro will find the rank 1 Kitetsu somewhere in the New World to replace Sandai Kitetsu.

So according to this link, if you ranked the swords cool enough to have names from 1-4, with 1 being the highest classification, Zoro currently has two #2 grade swords, and one #4 grade sword. He needs to upgrade Sandai Kitetsu or I will be annoyed that one is significantly weaker.

I think Yubashiri was of slightly higher quality than the cursed sword.

And the sharingan in his left eye-socket will be upgraded to a three-tomoe sharingan and then to Mangekyou Sharingan (Kuina will be resurrected so that Zoro can push her down another flight of stairs in order to upgrade his eye).

Notwithstanding his new magic eye, he will still manage to get lost in a straight corridor.

My favorite Zoro scene is still back in Water 7, when he and some other Straw Hats storm Iceberg's mansion/house thing. He's following Nami down a hallway, and when she turns right, he turns left. Gets me every time.

Isn't there a similar scene at enies lobby where he's following sanji and somehow ends up going up the wrong flight of stairs?

I've never been convinced that it's lost. I'd hate to see One Piece ever pull a loving Naruto, but somehow I think there's something crazy going on with his closed eye. Some people have brought up the idea of pirates who wore patches to retain night vision in one eye...but in Zoro's case I think it'd be something far crazier.

You are probably right Liar (hahaha).

But, talking seriously, I believe pirates wore eye patches so that when they other invaded ships they could swap their eye patch to the other eye enabling them to see below deck without waiting for their eyes to adjust.

Maybe Zoro has had something replace his eye and he only busts it out when he's fighting something extremely strong (a la Kenpachi).

He really has lost his eye. In times of great crisis, the empty eye-hole becomes the perfect socket for a fourth sword.

It doesn't have zero effect, it actually makes you stronger. The strongest character possible in anime would be a 150 year old plus man with no tongue, eyes, ears, nose or limbs. That fucker would kung fu your poo poo so hard it'd be wearing a little robe and belt as it came out.

Hell, if Zoro had lost both eyes and gone blind he'd of probably of shown up to Sabaody wearing a hat made up of Kizaru's head that he lopped off on his way to meet up with Luffy.

Im pretty certain that zoros eye will end up being some sort of ridiculous gag in the future. Rather than opening his wounded eye he will probably end up closing his healthy one or something

Just an average guy who serves as an average hero.

The first swordsman-y thing we see post-timeskip Zoro do is cut up a ship, the same way Hawk-Eyes does way back in the Baratie arc. I wonder if that was intentional.

Or maybe whatever training you go through to make you the strongest swordsman also makes you hate ships.

Has anyone watched the "3D Straw Hat Chase" movie yet?

It's not exactly high cinema, but I thought it was a pretty fun adventure. The 3D was neat at times and the ending action sequence had enough cool hits for me. And there was a dog, I liked the dog. I still can't wait for the next big animated feature though, I hope they can pull off another "Strong World."

Oh cool, Kintaros from Kamen Rider Den-O is playing Caribou. That's an interesting choice.

The Fakehats were pretty much just like this in the manga as well, it's the anime that's going slow to try and let Oda get further along. The anime really isn't even doing 1 chapter=1 episode anymore. It's more like 2/3 of one chapter and 1/12 of another, which ends a lot of the episodes in strange spots.
