One Piece, Volume 04 (One Piece, #4)

Captain Kuro of the Black Cat Pirates was the most feared evil genius on the high seas...until he vanished. Most people believe he's dead, but only his crew knows the truth: Captain Kuro has been laying low in a small seaside village, posing as a mild-mannered butler until the time for pillage is just right. Now that time has come, and the ruthless Black Cat Pirates are about to attack...Unless, of course, Monkey D.Luffy can stop them! All Luffy ...

    Basically one long fight, as is pretty common so far in this series, as the group attempts to defend a girl who is being murdered for her fortune. There's a little bit of stupid for plot in here, but it's not too egregious. Once again, this has nothing to do with anything, and isn't part of the actual story, but is amazing.

    The slow pacing that began in volume 3 is quickly remedied in volume 4! The story advances with humor and action as its central villain steps out to claim the spotlight. Oda does a great job showing us how truly different a villain like Kuro can be. His cunning tactics and ruthless blood lust is the polar opposite to the comedic and zany Buggy. He quickly shows us why he is a threat, to not only our heroes, but the other villains as well. The oth...

    Luffy hypnotized! 1. Zoro totally gets duped in this volume multiple times. First by Nami climbing over him on the oil hill and then the Meowban brothers stealing his swords. 2. While Usopp has a lot of understated heroic moments. Covered in blood and taking on enemies. “Eat lead, cats!” lol. And telling his little crew member to take Kaya to safety. Oof.Enemies defeated: Zoro defeats Siam of the Meowban brothers.

    In this manga, a butler Klahadore betrayed Kaya and he killed other butler Merry. Then Luffy, Zolo, Nami and Usoppu fight against Klahadore. Also “Tiger Trapp is shown at the first time. It was so strong and wonderful.

    This book’s main character is Usopp. He tells lies and teases villagers everyday. They know his lies so no one trust what he said. Usopp has three kids friends who are respect him. Telling lies is not good but he has a kind heart and sometimes he is brave.

    Captain Kuro of the Black Cat Pirates is so evil. I’m really scared him. He doesn’t have a friendship, love....that’s so terrible.I think this is the longest flight so far. It mean Captain Kuro is good antagonist. He has a great power, abilities. I just cheer Ruffy up.

    Having overheard the dastardly plans of the pirates to attack the village at dawn the next day, Usopp attempts to save their lives by warning them. But he’s cried wolf once too often, and they attempt to clobber him. He escapes and does the only thing he can think of—he runs to the mansion, intent on rescuing Kaya and taking her out of harm’s way. But she refuses to believe what he tells her of Klahadore, and he is once more set upon and is...

    Eiichiro Oda is growing in his art, the story progresses a bit slowly, in all honesty but this is a Shone Jump manga and they are in the business of serializing long stories. I would have rather wished that this tankobon had wrapped up the whole Black Pirates debacle, namely because again I've read this countless times and I was watching the anime so it feels a little like retreaded territory but that's clearly on my part and I don't sincerely be...

    The pirates attack and they must stop them from getting to the village and getting Miss Kaya away even though she wouldn't believe her friend at first. Yes, that was quite a run-on sentence.

    Actual Rating: 3.75 out of 5 starsSPOILERS FOR THE FIRST THREE VOLUMES OF "ONE PIECE" BELOWIn this fourth volume of One Piece, we continue attempting to stop the evil Captain Kuro (Klahadore) from stealing Kaya's fortune.Unfortunately, I would have to say this is my least favorite of the first four volumes. It was good, but it wasn't as fun as the others.Everything the third volume was building up to begins, which is good, but it felt like it was...

    Why do I keep reading this series? I think it is the sunk cost. This series reminds me of a passage from "The World According To Garp" by John Irving where a woman is reading Garp's manuscript and tells him it is terrible, but she said she had to finish it "to see how it turns out" or something along those lines.This is how I feel about One Piece. Although I don't think I can take much more.

    I'm really enjoying this series! It's no wonder it's so popular and has been going on for decades. The characters are fun, the art is silly, and the story is creative and slightly goofy. I wish this series wasn't so long and wasn't STILL going on because I'm going to be bummed when I have to stop reading it next volume :-(

    So exciting. Another cliffhanger ending, which I don't really mind if I'm being honest

    Ok, this volume just made me fall in love with Usopp again! He is so funny and even though he lies like most of the time, he can be brutally honest too! And of course Zoro is the coolest! 5 stars!

    The best volume up to now...Humor, action, build-up... everything has been satisfying while reading this volume. I wouldn't say that the fighting scenes were more vivid, it's just that the whole package brings no other response but of pure enjoyment- you can finish the whole volume in a jiffy, which I did(technically, no; I have work to do other than siting and reading you know, but I read it in pretty much at a stretch, in 12 hours...)First thin...

    One Piece volume 4: The Black Cat Pirates was a strong continuation to the Syrup Village storyline arc. Let’s break it down. Luffy my goodness Luffy, what is wrong with you? He’s got a horrible sense of direction and falls for hypnotism, but even then manages to be a badass and kick bad guy butt! He’s extremely serious in this volume, which feels strange and yet very appropriate given the seriousness of the situation. It is nice to see th...

    One Piece: Volume 4: 5 Stars (9.5/10 in my own personal rating system)-It has been years since I first read/watched One Piece (so long that back then I didn't have a Goodreads account and therefor I do not know the exact date) and it was a mess. I missed episodes as they were on tv and i am pretty sure I messed up with my switching from manga to anime and back even more. Still One Piece is one of my favourite Story to ever exist in any medium EVE...

    The Black Cat pirates definitely up the danger factor a little bit! I'm glad that we can sort of so Zoro and Luffy go a little more all-out, and I'm glad to see Nami and Usopp (who are not, for lack of a better word, superhuman) show us what they've got, too. The arc is still episodic, but this one is noticeably much longer than the prior arc or two. I was right in hoping that this volume would show a little more character development, but Zoro a...

    This volume sees Captain Kuro and his Black Cat Pirates begin to enact their plan of raiding the village and killing Kaya to steal her fortune. The other villains Luffy has fought to this point have been comical and exaggerated, whereas Kuro is more serious and ruthless. There’s more personal stakes at play which keeps things interesting.Most of the volume is a series of exciting fights against the various members of Kuro’s crew. Despite all ...

    The adventure continues. After discovering That Kaya's butler was actually the fearsome leader of the Black Cat Pirates, Usopp goes to warn the town about the upcoming danger. Nobody in the town believes him and so it is up to him and the straw hat crew to put things right and defeat him. These is a great volume and if you liked the previous ones, you will like this one

    Most of my relevant criticisms are left with the previous volume and continue here. The arc this volume is a part of is subpar. The villain is of the cunning and puppeteering variety, like several others, but has so little ambition that it's amusing to see his plan crumble. Amusing yes, but it's hardly memorable at all.

    Kuro has a cool design and Jango is a fun character, but the battle in this arc is going a little long, I think. Usopp has some good development, though.
