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

  • Christopher
    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.

    Какъв по-добър начин да отбележим 20 годишнината на „One Piece” от ревю на първите седем тома, знаменитото начало на епичната (и комична) сага, издадени на български от „Студио Арт Лайн”! Прочетете ревюто на "Книжни Криле":
  • Shane Reynolds
    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...

    So exciting. Another cliffhanger ending, which I don't really mind if I'm being honest
  • Koichi Mashita
    Usop is a lier, but this time he said true. Kuro is not good man and he is a captain of Kuroneko pirates. Kuro's background shows us. I am so surprised I thought he is good man because he works Kaya's house as a steward, but it is a lie. Kuro is too strong and I am interested in his weapon like a big nail. Luffy and other mate will win against him or not.
  • Mayuka Tsurusaki
    Many many antagonists showed up in this manga and they have “Katakana name”, so I can’t remember their names:-0........It’s a little difficult to remember the all names...
  • Kinsey
    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.
  • Junpei
    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.
  • Manami Yamaguchi
    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.
  • Julie Hayes
    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...
  • Ottery StCatchpole
    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...
  • Krista Ivy
    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.

    One Piece is about a superpower pirate, Monkey D Luffy. A young man whose body gains the properties of rubber after consuming a Devil's Fruit, and with his pirate Crew named the Straws Hat Pirates. He goes on a search of the world's ultimate treasure also known as the "One Piece", to become the next Pirate King.On Vol 4. Luffy saves the people of the island from the evil and dangerous Pirates, lead by Klahadore, who camouflage as a butler, to ear...
  • Kenneth Wade
    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...
  • Patrick
    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.
  • Miss Ryoko
    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 :-(
  • Shirley
    Reading them online! Love this so much! Still have a long way to go. More on
  • Karely Madrigal camacho
    Entretenido, sin mucho más que decir que la historia parece ir por buen camino.
  • Sarah
    Not going to lie: if I were I pirate, I would join the Black Cat Pirates.
  • Amy
    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!
  • Sakib
    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...
  • Vic - Lost in Fiction
    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...
  • Gözde Yeşilsefa
    Usopp’un “neden kimse bana inanmıyor” diye düşünmesi gerçekten çok gülünçtü. Daha mantıklı bir plan yapılabilirdi. Sonuçta ona kimsenin inanmayacağı çok barizdi. Çocukları kasabaya yollayıp tek başına savaşabileceğini düşünmesi bence aptallıktı. Usopp baya saf bir karakter cidden. Luffy’lerin kalıp yardım etmeyi istemelerini çok sevdim. Ama kuzeydeki yolu hesap edemeyen Usopp üzdü tabi. Luffy’nin yön k...
  • Austin Gullett
    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...
  • Paulina
    Un tomo con bastantes escenas de acción. Cada hoja que pasa me gustan más y más los protagonistas, pero Luffy, con su diseño y personalidad, me ha ganado un poco más. Qué puedo decir, tengo algo con los protas shonen... Por el otro lado, en verdad estoy pidiéndole a los dioses que Nami haga algo más que dar un par de patadas y caer rendida al primer golpe, ella me gusta demasiado como para soportar verla convertirse en el "típico persona...

    Volume 4 covers chapters 27 - 35. It has just been discovered that Klahadore is the infamous Captain Kuro, and he has been undercover for three years to steal Kaya's wealth. The stakes are raised as Luffy and team take on the Black Cat Pirates and the deadly Meowban brothers.As always, this volume is full of humor and action. Usopp's character is fleshed out a little bit, and I found some of the moments of Kaya realizing Klahadore's betrayal to b...
  • Josh Whittington
    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 ...
  • David Espinal
    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
  • Jared Emry
    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.
