    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It's the first time I'm reading the first volume of One Piece. It more than compares favorably to the anime. The main difference between the manga and the anime at this point is that the latter did not start off from Luffy's childhood, instead electing to introduce us to Koby first. In hindsight, it seems like an odd call from the producers at Toei, though I had no grievances at first viewing, and still don't now.

In hindsight, it seems like an odd call from the producers at Toei, though I had no grievances at first viewing, and still don't now. On another note, knowing what happens further on in the story in no way dampened my enjoyment of Romance Dawn. It was nostalgic to revisit the story in this form. The design of the characters was slightly different from their post-time skip selves. Except for Zoro, maybe. The character art is a bit lacking, but is eventually much improved upon. The art style, although less elaborate than what it would evolve into in later arcs, is clean (I'm looking at you Togashi) and detailed. The way Oda depicts action already bears his trademark flowing, impactful visual style, with impressive structure from panel to panel, which makes action scenes a real treat to read. I sometimes find it hard to fully grasp fight choreography in certain mangas, but it's safe to say that I have never had that problem with One Piece. Luffy is the typical Shonen protagonist - dumb, gluttonous, impulsive etc. But then again he isn't, really. Between gaining his (initially, seriously handicapping) powers at 7 and setting out for the sea, 10 years have passed, with him most certainly training his fighting abilities mindlessly in preparation for his future forays away from his village. In this way, he has more in common with Lemillion from My Hero Academia than the actual protagonist of that series, Deku. He isn't really selfless either, as we'll see later on, but he wants everyone to have the freedom to do what what they want. Until they end up hurting other people, that is. Luffy wants freedom for every one, but wants the greatest freedom for himself, which is why he is trying to become the Pirate King. Technically, being a Gum Gum Fruit user, he can never run out of gum, but that doesn't stop him from kicking ass anyway when someone asks for it, generally by messing with other people's freedom to do what they want. Simple, but not really. But what is a Pirate King without his crew? Luffy sets out on his own and the first thing he does is try to recruit someone called Zoro, who is a pirate hunter. A bit self-defeating if you ask me, but that sort of thing never stops Luffy, which is the whole point of his character spurred on by the ROMANCE of his journey to Pirate Kinghood. Zoro carries an air of menace even after being bound up and starved for almost a month. But you know he is good at heart when he refuses to let even bad food go to waste. It is later revealed that he is the epitome of "badassery". Every feat of strength, every cutting repartee is delivered with panache by him. The perilous situation he faces even when he should technically be dead are ridiculous, and are always physically punishing to him the most. But to him, even after all the ordeal he has to go through, it will be as if... nothing happened. Early on, the antagonists are almost jokes, but far from one-dimensional. Alvida and Morgan (he does not deserve the title of captain), are all deeply insecure about their respective bodies. The way they feel the need to constantly intimidate and needlessly abuse their minions (and in case of Morgan, his son) is despicable, but is rooted in their inability to contend with their own perceived imperfections. They are short-lived characters, but there will be a lot more of the same ilk in One Piece, and it is really a testament of Oda's skill as a writer that he manages to flesh out even minor characters as these two. The last chapter is called "Introducing Nami". That whets the appetite. There is so much foreshadowing about her. This volume is what kicked off this epic sea adventure. At the time of writing, 96 mores have already been released, and we are barely past the halfway mark. I can't wait to see where this journey will take us. Loved this volume to bits.

    For me, One Piece is best Manga ever written. The story always touch my heart, it is a combination of faithful friendship, laughter, loyalty and action. Some people might find this manga as silly and pointless (I’ve heard this before) but they never truly read the Manga and therefore judging it simply from the cover. I’ve been in that position too…and thank God I finally looked beyond the cover and found the greatest adventure any Mangaka ever written.

One Piece is the only manga I've been loyal to for the past ten years.As I grew up I choose to read more serious book and leave manga behind. But One piece is an exception.

My favorite is Zorro, a very responsible nakama, who's willing to go trough pain and suffers just to protect the others. The villains are equally awesome too, and to be honest the villains are sometimes better than the main character. Story wise, the setting was in wonderful world we never imagine, different enemies, and a plot twist we never expect. The One Piece World is very diverse, with unique creature and stronger enemies as the level going up. The incredible detail and meticulous (hands off to Oda) about every part of it, the world government, the sichibukai, the pirate and even for the additional character. This manga is insanely funny!!

    The beginning of one of the most epic manga stories ever. I gave only 4 star for first volume because the world has not much revealed. But on next volumes you could see the fantasy world of One Piece is rich, fresh, and populated with many interesting characters.

    One Piece is the best-selling manga of all time - and, going by this first book, I have no idea why! A kid called Luffy wants to grow up to become king of pirates. Which seems unlikely until he accidentally eats the gum-gum fruit and basically turns into Mister Fantastic from the Fantastic Four, becoming invulnerable to swords and bullets and seemingly everything, as well as strong, in the bargain! He’s gotta assemble a crew and he’s questing for the fabled treasure, One Piece.

He’s gotta assemble a crew and he’s questing for the fabled treasure, One Piece. Luffy is not an interesting protagonist. There’s nothing more boring than a main character who is as invincible as he is, who can effortlessly overcome any obstacle in his way and has no weaknesses whatsoever. But, like every other character here, he doesn’t have much of a personality either. I have no idea why the pirates who had the gum-gum fruit in their possession didn’t eat it immediately and turn into Stretch Armstrong themselves given that doing so has literally no downsides. They just had it because Luffy needed to eat it and get those powers and so have these adventures - it’s that contrived. Also, every time the gum-gum fruit is mentioned - and it’s mentioned a lot - it’s called a “secret treasure” but literally everyone knows what it is so I don’t get what’s “secret” about it?? The story is tedious. Bandits fight pirates in a bar with no stakes; Luffy meets Koby, a dorky cabin boy that wants to join the Navy; and they recruit Roronoa Zolo, another invulnerable character, a master swordsman whose weapons are three large swords (which just seems impractical). Together they easily defeat the not-at-all-scary Captain Morgan and his Prince Joffrey-esque son. That’s the whole unremarkable and unsurprising book. It’s SO BORING! I honestly can’t tell you one good thing about it. Maybe the first book is a dud and Eiichiro Oda’s extremely long series gets better somewhere later on down the line but, if Romance Dawn is anything to go by, I remain utterly baffled as to One Piece’s popularity.

    The world of pirates seems pretty awesome when you are a kid! No rules and parents, just treasure hunts and palm trees and lots of laughter and maybe a colorful parrot on your shoulder - that's the life!! The genius of One Piece is that it perfectly captures these childhood fantasies, turning them into a rollicking adventure that is anchored by relatable characters while bubbling over with fun and enthusiasm.

    One Piece is the best selling manga of all time. And it's not close, with approximate sales at 380 million volumes. Normally, I wouldn't even review something this iconic. It's like giving my opinion on Batman. And not the most recent Batman, but iconic original series Batman. You just don't. It's Batman. But a large majority of my GR friends don't read manga, even among the comic readers, or at least don't review it here if they do. So let's talk about one of the most famous manga of all time.

But a large majority of my GR friends don't read manga, even among the comic readers, or at least don't review it here if they do. So let's talk about one of the most famous manga of all time. Perhaps you've seen the anime. One Piece begins with the execution of the King of the Pirates, who, just before the executioner's blade fell, announced that his treasure, called One Piece, was available to anyone who could find it. People are greedy, so the Great Pirate Era begins. Skipping ahead a decade or so finds us following the young boy Luffy, who wants to be a pirate more than anything, despite not being able to swim. In a moment of plot, he eats the Gum-Gum Fruit, one of the Devil Fruits. Now each devil fruit gives a special power to the person who eats it, and this one basically turns his body into rubber. This means he can't be hurt (pretty much). Bullets bounce off of him, he can punch really far (somehow), etc. Skip forward another decade and we have Luffy as a young man, still determined to be King of the Pirates! He then sets off on his adventure to find himself a pirate crew and locate the One Piece treasure. The rest of the volume has him run into a couple of enemies, including one with an axe for a hand, and a couple of new friends, including Zolo, who uses the insane three-sword technique. Through it all Luffy approaches everything like it is just one big adventure, even while people are trying to murder him. He's a fairly odd pirate, really. It's all about friendship and following your dreams, even when they are completely nuts. Let's talk art. Every now and then, in fact if you scroll down this page to the other reviews is one, you will find someone who says the art is terribad. These people are wrong. You are welcome not to like it, just as you are welcome to not like anything. But you're still wrong. :D One Piece manages to have clean art while still being very kinetic. I'd say it is art that could easily adapt to a cartoon... but there's an anime with over 700 episodes, and the art is pretty much an exact match, so I suppose that is obvious. The primary issue I have with One Piece, and this is true of pretty much all manga, is that it expects you to be in for the long haul. While there are a couple of completed stories in this volume, it is obviously just the setup for things to come. Those of us reading american comics for decades are used universe resets and such seemingly all the time. You don't typically get that with manga (at least not the stuff that gets translated to English. I wouldn't know about the rest of the market.. and watch One Piece be the exception since I haven't read most of it yet). They aren't typically books you pick up with the something recent like you often can with american comics. Start back at the beginning and catch up. There are currently over 80 volumes of this, and it's still going, so there's a lot to catch up on. But it's the best selling manga of all time, so it can't be too bad.

    One Piece is famous for being that one manga that absolutely refuses to end. At 89 (!) volumes and counting, it's one of the longest-running series in history, and an extremely intimidating undertaking for many new readers like me because of that.

Still, its insane popularity and the pirate adventure premise piqued my interest enough to check at least the first volume, and I have to say — I'm into it! One Piece is about a young boy named Luffy, whose biggest dream has always been becoming the Pirate King and finding One Piece, the greatest treasure in the world. At one point, he accidentally eats a magic fruit that gives him the ability to stretch his body just like Reed Richards, but it also (for some baffling reason) makes him unable to swim. One day he decides to embark on an adventure, looking for a ship and a crew. It's quite humorous in a way that reminded me of one of my favourite video game series ever, Monkey Island. While One Piece is nowhere near the same level of wit as Ron Gilbert's legendary games, I will still take my comedy pirate adventure fix wherever I can get it. Luffy is a fun main character who takes shit from no one, no matter their status or reputation, and I loved every moment when he punched some big-shot in the face. The rest of the cast looks promising, although no one truly stands out so far — it's mostly Luffy's show at this point. The artwork looks very nice! It's cartoony and a bit over-exaggerated, but it works really well with the tone of the storytelling. I have to mention that I was reading this volume online through some not-so-official sources (don't judge me), and I had a fully-coloured version — I'm not sure if this version is officially available in english, but oh boy, the colour really suits this manga. I think if I were to read this in black-and-white, I would have a bit more trouble distinguishing between certain characters, especially female ones, because they all have the same face and only slightly different hair styles. Other than that, the book looks absolutely delightful, just like a good adventure comic should. Overall, I was really pleasantly surprised by the first volume of One Piece. I know it's impossible to judge such a massive series just by one volume out of 89 (!!), but I sure am willing to read more. And while I can't say if I'm ever going to read all 89 (!!!) volumes, I get the feeling that this is the kind of series that is about the journey, not the destination.

I started loosing hope and i completetly lost track of it for some years but all this time i've never stopped being attached to it. Then i found everything, got obsessed about it, loved it, adored it. I started reading the manga later on and there are some minor things in there that are different from the anime but it is 100% the same story. I am telling you, the manga is soooo good <3. This is the first volume and it contains chapters 1-8. It also contains all the feels and all the nostalgia. This is the beggining of everything. Oda sensei is amazing. He is giving us an adventure filled with love, humor, values. Beautiful story, amazing characters. Cannot reccomend more. If you like manga and anime, read or watch this, or do both. ONE PIECE ROCKS <3 **I keep rereading this and how can i possibly express how much i love it?**

    Eiichiro Oda is an amazing Mangaka. One Piece is for a reason the number one bestselling manga in the world. The amount of work and dedication that goes into every page of One Piece is something special and makes you respect Oda as an amazing artist & mind. I have been following this series for the last 14 years and I can say with confidence that One Piece is one of the few long running mangas where there are hardly if not any story faults/gaffes/plots holes.

The story is very consistent and all the strings seem to come together perfectly sooner or later. A few complaints regarding the manga would be that it is very slow paced. Some archs are totally unnecessary and boring. For a 14-year-old running manga, which according to Oda has 14 more years to go, it has very few "epic" moments. Just one to be exact and that was the White Beard arch. Oda tends to keep a lot of secrets to keep you guessing and speculating, which is fun at start but after 14 years you do get a bit angry. This manga is not meant for everyone and it is a huge dedication, but once you start reading it.... It is almost impossible to stop.

    I've gone on and on about my hatred for shonen manga. I've said before it's franchises like Naruto and Yu Gi Oh that form what most westerners conceive to be the whole of manga-- which is a problem, because as long as manga is seen as just a teen fad, some amazing works of comic art and literature are being completely overlooked by a large audience that might otherwise devour them. Sure, Seinen manga seems to have a small foothold now, but what about Gekiga? Or Josei? How about some of the class I've gone on and on about my hatred for shonen manga.

Sure, Seinen manga seems to have a small foothold now, but what about Gekiga? Or Josei? How about some of the classics like Rose of Versailles? Anytime Viz licenses something that isn't just teenagers shooting psychic rays at each other, it's a miracle. So why, you must be wondering, would I give One Piece five stars? Because it's pure cartooning. Out of the "big three" Shonen Jump titles, One Piece is by far the superior. While Dragon Ball is an obvious influence of both One Piece and Naruto, Naruto is only a derivative of Akira Toriyama's work, where as Eiichiro has pushed beyond those limits, creating an art style and world just as unique to himself as Toriyama's was with Dr. Slump. But even as slapstick as One Piece can be, Eiichiro has the storytelling ability to make you care for his large cast of characters in the most absurd situations-- something Bleach hasn't been able to do since somewhere in the Soul Society Arc. However more flashier Bleach may be, One Piece makes up for it with heart. Sure, One Piece isn't perfect. Like any popular manga running in a weekly magazine, there's times you can tell Eiichiro and his assistants are rushing to get those 18 pages done. And of course, with over 60 some volumes in the series, it's amazing how far a single storyline can stretch, and 600 chapters can be quite daunting for new readers. But when Eiichiro and his guys are firing on all cylinders, this is the comic that justifies Jump's existence.

    A manga that is a silly and rollicking pirate story that reminds you of every (boy) adventure story you liked as a kid. Over the top, funny, inventive. One of the most beloved and best selling and longest running manga series of all time. I didn't love it, a little too goofy for me, so it's about a 3.5 for me, maybe that high because it is good and energetic and I get why half the world loves it, but that low because it's just not my favorite style in form or content.

Captain Shanks sails away but first leaves Luffy his beloved straw hat, thus giving Luffy the new nickname "Straw Hat". Ten years pass and Luffy sets off alone in a small dingy determined to follow his dream. He has no abilities at navigation and just lets the sea take him on a series of adventures where he hopes to build a crew and find the "One Piece" treasure. I loved Luffy's character! He has such a fierce determination about him, even as a small boy. Captain Shanks realizes this, even seeing a bit of his younger self in the young Luffy. Shanks is a great role model for Luffy, as pirates go, even if Luffy doesn't realize this at first. He shows him that it isn't always necessary to fight, and that killing doesn't make you a man, and that for friends you sacrifice whatever is necessary. I noticed a definite theme of determination running through this volume. Several characters Luffy encounters all have goals or made promises to themselves or others and all are fiercely determined to see them through to the end regardless of any obstacles that try to block their way. The art work is great! Lots of interesting looking characters and wonderful facial expressions. There is a good mix of small and large panels and the ships look amazing! The story is full of action and nice flashback scenes that help flesh out some of the characters. This is a manga I will definitely continue reading, and there are a LOT OF VOLUMES to keep me busy for some time to come. But I'm DETERMINED to read more, and I recommend you pick this up as well. If you are looking to get into manga for the first time, you can't go wrong with One Piece!

Oda is a great artist and an amazing storyteller who has managed to build a compelling narrative, rich in emotions and set in a rich detailed world that only rewards you more every time you reread it. In its basic premise, One Piece is a grand tale of romance and adventure set in an oceanic world where the execution of the pirate king Gold D. Roger has ushered in a new era of pirates all looking for his great treasure, the One Piece. The story follows the protagonist Monkey D. Luffy, who wants to find One Piece and become the king of the pirates, and his nakama that he gathers on the way. While the story progresses through small self contained arcs with their own conflicts and resolution, they all add up to an overarching story line and a fundamental conflict that becomes more and more apparent as the manga progresses. Especially after the summit war that breaks the balance among the world powers and brings in the new age. The sea itself seems to be the perfect setting for such a tale of grand and fantastical adventure. The sea is vast and it signifies endless possibilities. It symbolizes freedom, dreams and hope, and also mystery and adventure. Also the the weather patterns of the grandline, where you can only navigate by going from one island to the next, reinforces the sense of mystery and anticipation. This is a world where literally anything can happen like ships falling out of the sky and islands in the sky. This living, breathing world in One Piece is one of its greatest strength. Oda has managed to build a large and very detailed world with diverse landscapes and cultures each with their own history, unique technology, geography, wildlife, architecture and political structures. There are countless stories and conflicts and they all intersect and interconnect to form a coherent whole. But what makes this a living, breathing, and a changing world are the characters. Every character, minor or major, is fully fleshed out. Apart from their purpose in the overarching story line, they all have their own personal stories, their own past and struggles, and their own dreams. Even the characters that are present for just one or two chapters, tell their own story and are very memorable. His character designs play a huge part in it. The designs are all very exaggerated, with idiosyncrasies and quirks that make them unique and memorable. The main themes st the heart of the story are of friendship, the wonder and discovery of an adventure, the idea of dreams and fulfilling those dreams with sheer willpower and determination, the concept of inherited will and destiny. Another important theme is the idea of freedom vs control. Oda explores this theme through the power structures in One Piece. Pirates, a tyrannical world government and its navy, the revolutionary army, four emperors of the sea and the schichibukai. There is no clearly defined good vs evil among them. Our protagonists do not belong to any power structure and they are more often than not pitted against other pirates that are cruel and are causing havoc and destruction. A great story that is fun and entertaining, and it seems we are nowhere close to the end despite running for almost a 100 volumes.

    I mean, One Piece is hilarious and epic. It doesn't get much better than that. I see the hype and Oda's brilliant series deserves every bit of it and more. But I refuse to rate every single volume of One Piece. I like to think I have a life. So, uhm, just read One Piece. One Piece is awesome.

    I've never had the chance to check out Luffy in action back in high school, but the popularity of One Piece was undeniable. I'm still a bit surprised that it's still an ongoing series too! I have to admit that there are some pretty subtle similarities with Naruto, yet it still remains its own thing.

Somehow he has a nose for those good guys, and he always finds himself at the right spot at the right time. I look forward to seeing what insane things he's bound to accomplish or encounter.

    My first One Piece manga... And with Luffy, my journey begins, a long journey, with Luffy and so many characters to come, in the Golden Age of Piracy... I must be a brave guy, to start something so huge and detailed as this manga; those who watch its anime or are following the manga know how much time it'll take to see the finishing of this epic and long voyage of pirate adventures... I've decided to read the manga rather than watch the anime, it'll be quicker and the fun I'll be getting will be in My first One Piece manga... And with Luffy, my journey begins, a long journey, with Luffy and so many characters to come, in the Golden Age of Piracy... I must be a brave guy, to start something so huge and detailed as this manga; those who watch its anime or are following the manga know how much time it'll take to see the finishing of this epic and long voyage of pirate adventures... I've decided to read the manga rather than watch the anime, it'll be quicker and the fun I'll be getting will be in its purest form; and one more reason is that I've developed a fondness for manga recently... and One Piece is a great piece of creation, one of the longest and oldest, the oldest one being, as far as I know, Dokaben, still in publication since 1972... The humor is good, but I'm finding the artwork a bit "lound and eccentric", and it seems every guy has literally a "big mouth" and a "big smile"... I guess it's Oda's style of bringing out more humor and life and emotions, and somehow the facial expressions and artwork in the humorous parts reminds me of cartoons... "Cartoon-ish" or not, the emotional parts felt well-delivered. And I agree- Luffy's smile really is kinda touching, and alive within the artwork that comes forth with such vitality that you really can't find it odd... And he's the cutest, in this volume; looks like he's gonna grow old slowly... I'm sure I'll get used to the artwork... In between chapters and volumes, there are little notes on piracy and inception of Oda's career as a manga artist, also how he came to find the characters and idea of the One Piece as we know it today, and how to draw pirate flags! It's a grand tale of the characters, and also the beginning and journey of the creator of those characters... Loved Shanks, he's no more than an old Luffy I guess and as Shanks himself said, Luffy "acts just like I did when I was a kid". He really loves/d Luffy, along with all the faces that grew familiar with him during the period he's at that place... The action sequences aren't that vivid, but fun to watch... already loving the style how Luffy throws himself in dangers and fights, as his pirate fellows and friends put on basically "WTF" expressions because of his doings; that kind of innocence and merry tomfoolery - you can't just help but like it... Loving the phrases "Gum-Gum Pistol" and "Gum-Gum Rocket"... here comes Luffy! The journey starts with Luffy's search of his crew members for his own fleet of pirates, and first we meet Zolo. Zolo is badass, has a good heart and seems to be getting along great with Luffy, although his first impression made me think otherwise. We get to know a significant part of his past as well, what drives him and his dream of becoming The World's Greatest Swordsman... At the end of the volume, another future crew member might've has just appeared... The conclusion of chapter seven was very interesting, giving insight to both Luffy and Coby, which certainly will make some future volumes interesting. There's an inconsistency at the end of the chapter, but compared to the whole package, I'm counting it as next to nothing... All in all, a terrific start... looking forward to the next volume...

    The author, Eiicho Oda, created, One Piece, because as a kid Oda was interested in pirates and being a manga book artist/writer. Af first, he submitted a book called Pandaman for a contest. At the age of 17, he submitted his work called, Wanted!, and this won several awards.

At the age of 19, he looked back on all his work and decided to create, One Piece, which included some of the main characters from his previous works. He worked as an assistant artist for Nobuhiro Watsuki and presented his storyboard ideas to him and other manga book artists. One Piece appeared for the first time in Shonen Jump Magazine. The book instantly became the number one popular manga book in Japan. This book is popular among teens and young adults because it encourages a discussion about following your dreams. The main antagonist Bellany said, "The Lost City of gold!? The Emerald city!? The great treasure of One Piece!? The fools who go looking for their "dream treasure" cannot notice what's in front of them! In this era of the sea the ones that do not have real strength, are the ones that are killed by their own imaginations!" (Oda244) Interestingly, I view this quote from two perspectives. Bellany argues that you should take advantages of the treasure in front of you as opposed to chasing fools gold. On the other hand, when I see the friendship the pirates develop by chasing their supposed impossible dream, I realize they discover an even greater treasure, friendship. The lesson learned is to follow your dreams, whatever it might be. This book is well written because it takes complex issues such as racism, hope, revenge, and corruption and highlights them in simple, yet creative ways. For example, the main character Luffy has a silly nature. However, others believe him to be a hero because he fights against evil and corruption. When described as a hero, Luffy states, "We're pirates you know! I love heroes, but I don't want to be one. Do you even know what a hero is? For example, you have some meat. Pirates will feast on the meat, but the hero will distribute it among the people! I want to eat the meat!" (Oda308) I like how the author writes about serious issues through laughter using piracy as the backstory. The character development of Luffy is the most captivating. I related to Luffy the most. Luffy is a child-like character whose dream is to have an adventure and be free. One of Luffy's characteristics is that he is very silly and always wants to have fun. Even in the most serious situations, he tends to spit out something unrelated to the situation or tell a funny joke. Another one of his characteristics is that he is very confident. He never backs down from a challenge, even though he might be heavily outnumbered or overpowered. He is also very compassionate because he can forgive any enemy or villain he comes across. In the book, he does not kill his enemies, he just defeats them in battle unlike other pirates who would kill their enemies. I would highly recommend this book. The greatest strength of the book is the storyline and characters. The authors creatively uses the storyline and humorously uses the characters to discuss societal issues. Throughout the mysteries and adventures, the main message conveyed in the book is "Work towards your dreams no matter how hard it is." (Oda400) However, the greatest weakness of the book is the vocabulary. The vocabulary is limited because of the manga style language and it is translated from Japanese.

He still has a lot (and I mean, A LOT!) of fan service and juvenile moments but for the most part, the puns and jokes help alleviate some of the more intense moments. This is just a review for what has been written thus far, but I really do look forward to the rest of the series - especially how the bigger plot gets unfurled.

    One of the best manga, ever. And my most favorite manga all the time. It's part of my teen life and now part of my adult life. You have no idea how much i love this manga. I laughed like crazy one time, and cried like a baby the other time. So many tears have falling down since i read or watch this series. I cried when Nami lost her mother. I cried when they were in Sorajima. I cried (a little) when i read Robin Neechan's story of Ohara. Oh, i forgot. I also cried when in Alabasta's war. I cried One of the best manga, ever.

I cried when they were in Sorajima. I cried (a little) when i read Robin Neechan's story of Ohara. Oh, i forgot. I also cried when in Alabasta's war. I cried hard when they parted with Merry. I cried when Mr. 2 sacrificed himself for Luffy in Impel Down. You would have no idea how many tears i've shed when Ace died.... That's the reason why i don't want to watch the anime for so long. Stupid reason. I just don't want to say goodbye to Ace. But i know, i have to move on.... And yeah, i cried like a baby for the whole 3-5 episode (or maybe more). I don't even cried this much when i watched Korean-tear-jerker-drama. Damn you, Oda-sensei! How many girls you've made cry? I felt Luffy's sadness and despair when he lost his brother. And at that time he also parted with his nakama, so no one there who could give him hug and say to him that everything would gonna be alright. Thank God Luffy met new fabulous people in Impel Down, like Iva and Jinbei, that have saved his life. I could feel how hurt his nakama too, when they heard Luffy has lost his beloved brother in Marine Ford. They must be so frustrated not be able to be with Luffy in his hardest time, while Luffy always be there for them. Their bond is so deep that made me envy. I just finished watch all the anime series (oh, i haven't watch this week eps though...). I haven't read all the series yet (I stopped in Fishman Island so it's not very long), but i think i'm gonna start from after Punk Hazard, and then reread all from the first. I can't wait for another surprise from Oda-sensei. Also who is the last person who will be Luffy's nakama. As much as i want to see the end of the story, i also don't want One Piece to be end.

Twenty two years later, a young man(Luffy)starts his adventure journey to look for the treasure and to become the pirate king. He starts to search for a ship and crew for his journey. The story is very exciting in a funny and romantic way, also It teaches you how to defend your friends and how to trust them no matter what happens. It will touch on your emotions and make you energetic and happy most of the time. It will let your imagination live in dreams of fantasy, it will raise your sprit up all of the time. Each Monday I’m waiting for each chapter release to read it using the internet and so many fans of this manga are doing the same. It is truly the best manga I have ever read in my life. I strongly recommend this manga for everybody.

    I want to to say Oda is amazing. The story and art are gifts to the reader. Iove the pirate concept. It totally adds frivolity to the story in a good way. I will elaborate later after work. I just finished this manga at lunch. :-)
