    This was such a fun time! I LOOOOOVE pirates in general, so I had a great time reading this. And Luffy is so ridiculous and funny so that's a plus.

    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 ev...

    I wrote the review for the whole One Piece manga not only for volume one. 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. If you read the manga, you will see how every character, mainly the protagonist have very compelling and charismatic personality. Luffy is the captain, a happy go lucky person who sometimes act stupid (a...

    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.

    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. It is no surprise at all that One Pie...

    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 a...

    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/...

    Let's get this straight. I am a hardcore One Piece fan. I have been since forever. I remember watching it on tv as a kid. Then they stopped airing the show for some reason. The problem was that it was dubbed in greek and they changed the title and i had no clue from where to start in order to find it. Since then i have been searching for it. I was in desparare need to watch it. And believe me, back then it was not easy to find anything cz interne...

    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, ...

    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...
