One Piece, Volume 05 (One Piece, #5)

Once upon a time, Usopp was just a local boy with a talent for tall tales.

But then real pirates landed on the beach…Now Usopp's village is under attack by the Black Cat Pirates, one of the most legendary and feared crews on the high seas. And three young would-be pirates have joine...

  • Christopher
    First half is finishing up Usopp's intro story. Then they are off to look for a cook, because that's what a pirate ship really needs (and a musician!), at an on-ocean restaurant. Sanji makes his first appearance.Everyone at the restaurant is insane. It's really funny.

    ~ No Spoilers ~The first few chapters didn't impress me very much, but once chapter 40 came, I felt like the characters had become themselves again and everything I love about One Piece had been restored. I even laughed aloud several times.However, towards the end I became slightly confused with the introduction of several new characters. Rating: 4.25 out of 5 stars

    Oh, Sanji ♥

    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'm not really interested in reviewing this series, but I want to have a recap for myself, in case I'm searching for a specific scene in the future, which is why I actually plan to reread the whole series in 2012. - End of fight with the butler- Ussop joins the gang; they get their ship (The Going Meri/Flying Lamb); they get their flag- More of Ussop's history, he is now more likeable.. or maybe that's just me pitying him?- Introduces two bounty ...
  • Taruia
    The saga of the Usopp the liar story continues without pause, or a decent editor it would seem, as repetitive panels re-explaining the situation isn't doing anything for this manga. Anyhow, instead of killing everyone it is decided to have a rich, frail girl, who happens to be the heir of a massive house and wealth (and jetskis presumably but they haven't been seen yet, what this story really does need is a jetski ... however) to sign over her we...

    Si no me equivoco, este es el último tomo que leí hasta el momento de One Piece. Y, al igual que los otros, me resultó muy simpático, gracioso y bien dibujado, pero no me dejó ansioso por leerme el tomo siguiente. Algún día la seguiré... aunque me va a costar ponerme al día.
  • Kai Wilson
    Yet another great book in the One Piece series. Wonderful illustrations and enjoyable storyline as per usual. The plot ends in a cliffhanger which left me eager to read the next book.

    3.5 - "You're already our companion, aren't you?"Chapter 41 is a gold! So many feels for nakama and kazoku. Sanji finally makes his appearance too. <3
  • Shirley
    Reading them online! Love this so much! Still have a long way to go. More on

    Plot:This part of the Ussop storyline is probably my least favorite. The plot was all right but kind of dragged out in manga form. I do love that Luffy finally gets a ship, Ussop joins the crew, and they are on the hunt for a cook.Setting:I like the little town Ussop lives in. The restaurant on the sea is always cool too.Characters:I like all of the characters, but this manga was more focused on the fighting. Sanji is finally introduced though.Re...
  • Austin Gullett
    This volume sees the defeat of the Black Cat Pirates and the introduction of the Going Merry (or the Merry Go) and of Sanji! The Straw Hat dynamic is starting to get pretty padded-out, and it's fun to see. The chapters are still vaguely episodic, but the lore and the political situation is starting to expand out a little bit more. I don't have too much to say! We're still in the East Blue saga, so things are moving pretty quick. I only ever watch...
  • Cynthia
    I love this volume. Solely because of the introduction of my favorite cook. I had to put my ereader down and run around. Hurrayyy! Actually, I think I'll scream everytime a future crewmember is introduced, cause I love them all :)))))
  • TheGracefulReader
    THE GOOD Luffy: Luffy really impressed me with his fight against Captain Kuro in this volume. And it seems Luffy is one of few pirates who has morales. He would sooner die than hurt his crew, and it seems he takes a great offense to Kuro slaughtering his own men. Luffy's values are part of what make him a unique and interesting character. Zolo: Zolo has a couple of battles in this book, against the final Meowban brother, and that weirdo hypnotist...

    Luffy and his crew finish their face-off with the dastardly pirates who are trying to get past him to the village. Usopp's crew grab Miss Kaya and run off with her to protect her with the hypnotist first mate running after them. Everything gets resolved. The town is saved and they don't even know it. Miss Kaya gives Luffy a proper ship. Usopp goes with them.

    Usopp’s pirates, protecting Kaya, are chased by the hypnotist/pirate captain Django, while Klahadore, the false butler, faces down Luffy, Zolo, and Usopp. He thinks he has them where he wants them, but Zolo shows that the Meowban brothers are no match for him, although Usopp goes down, and cannot rise. No problem! Zolo will carry him, leaving Luffy to deal with Klahadore.As Luffy and Klahadore battle, the pirate butler’s plan becomes apparent...

    4 estrellas . Interesante punto de partida este tomo para finalizar el arco de la Isla de Ussop donde básicamente todo el tomo abarca la pelea para finalizar toda esta entramada encrucijada que lucía como una traición a la familia de Kaya. Me pareció buena aunque corta , buena trama , buena habilidad de dibujo ágil como debe ser en movimiento . Divertidos gags , momentos para desprender algunas lagrimas , algunos para estar tensionados y no ...

    The story has hit is stride now for me. This volume continues the story of the battle against Captain Kuro started in Vol. 4. This plays out; we are given background material on the new characters; and let into Kuro's real dastardly objectives. The battles continue and this storyline comes to an end. Unfortunately as I had hoped would not happen in the last volume Ussop does join our major characters as a member of the crew. My favourite is Zolo ...

    Protect Kaia!!!Kaia begins to realize that Usopp is not lying about her butler being a pirate trying to kill her and take all her wealth. In order to persuade him to stop, she leaves her mansion for the first time with her weak body. Though severely injured, Usopp tries his best to protect her. Meanwhile, Luffy beats Kuro and thus the pirates give up and leave the village. As a grateful and parting gift, Kaia gives Luffy a ship, Going Merry, and ...
  • Kurami Rocket
    The story of Usopp's village comes to a close in this vol. What I liked is that it was full of some emotion and it is explained why Usopp would always yell, ’the pirates are coming.' Though, how he can still care for his father and look up to him after he practically abandoned him to become a pirate, I'll never know...This vol was ehh, ok. A lot of stuff was predictable and the ending wasn't all that surprising. I knew things would work out in ...

    Sanji arrives! Yay! My favorite one piece character probably. But before that.... During Luffy's fight with Captain Kuro, he exclaims "Don't you even care about your own crew?!". Nami hears this, back at the ship, and looks surprised that a pirate would care. I think this is another way that Luffy showed (unconsciously) Nami that not all pirates are bad. After the fight Luffy's lost a lot of blood and is weak. Nami comes over to him with the trea...

    Volume starts with chapter: 36 "The Chase."The Usopp Pirate crew are leading Ms. Kaya to Luffy and the gang, when they run into the hypnotist Jango. You will love this guy. All the while Luffy, Zoro, Nami, and Usopp are fighting off the Terrible Captain Kuro. Go find this volume.
  • Nicole
    In this volume, Usopp joins Luffy's pirate crew and says his goodbyes to Kaya and "his pirates," and Kaya thanks them all by giving them a lovely new boat. We then get introduced to two of Zolo's former pirate-hunting partners - Yosaku and Johnny - who sort of indirectly become part of Luffy's crew as well. The volume concludes with our crew dropping anchor for a spell at a seafood restaurant (on its own ship), and we meet the main that appears t...
  • kehau
    I don't know why this series is so popular. Must have to do with the pirate infatuation pushed on kids by Disney (talk about Disneyism or Mickey-nomics P4C people). Anyway, more silliness abounds in this pirate tale of Luffy (eater of the gum-gum devil fruit which makes him stretchable, ala Mr Fantastic, just with less control) and his band of strawhat pirates as they continue to battle bigger and badder pirates in their search for the "one piece...
  • Ottery StCatchpole
    Again I wouldn't blame the book so much as I am just a little tired with the storylines since I'm watching the anime. The art is still cool, and the differences in the story are what make the manga more interesting, its weird seeing how the anime is sanitized for a wider audience.Cool story, awesome adventures and we finally get to meet Sanji who with Zoro are my favorite characters in the manga. Seriously cool.
  • Robert Beveridge
    Eiichiro Oda, One Piece: For Whom the Bell Tolls (ViZ, 1997)The Usopp storyline comes to a close, and the crew heads off to find a ship's cook. Where better to do so than a floating restaurant? The only problem is that on the way, they meet a Navy Marshal, who attempts to sink their ship, and Luffy, in deflecting the ball, sends it right into said floating restaurant-- so now he not only has the navy to contend with, but very angry restaurant own...
