    Luffy doesn't give up. Finish the fight at the restaurant, convince Sanji to be his cook, and then follow after Nami, who stole their ship and treasure a couple of volumes back (because that's how she do). Really good stuff.We also get introduced to Saw-tooth. Look at that nose. I don't even.

    One Piece to jak zwykle jedna ze wspaniałych guilty pleasures :) Moim zdaniem bardzo dobre przejście od historii Sanji'ego do wprowadzenia w tło pod historię Nami. Kreska moim zdaniem jedna z lepszych jeśli chodzi akurat o ten gatunek.+ propsy dla tłumacza za przekład technik i określeń nowych ras

    THE GOOD Luffy; He wraps up his fight with Don Krieg in this book and sets sail towards a new enemy, the fishman Arlong. We get to see Luffy's determination and how it pushes him not to give up, even when it seems like you are going to lose.Sanji: Sanji and the goodbye in this volume were fantastic. Slowly, he is realizing that it is okay to leave the restaurant and try to chase his dreams.Nami: Ooh, boy. Nami got some good character development ...

    Ahh, a nice conclusion to Sanji's arc. I'm really pumped for this Nami's Backstory arc. But, wasn't Sanji's character change between leaving the restaurant, all serious and what not, to Sanji on the boat to Arlong, being perverted of Nami, a bit strange? Eh, probably just me. On another note, I love all the extras Oda-san puts in between chapters. I've said this before already, bit they truly are great.
  • Keerthana
    As we progress more into the story we get to know about most of characters intentions and ambitions. And also the fact that even in the so called good side people are not who they seem to be. I'm sooo excited.
  • Karely Madrigal camacho
    Divertido y entretenido que más se puede pedir.

    -Luffy... ¿has oído hablar del All Blue?¿Cómo? ¿Que si alguna vez le daré a estos mangas menos de 5 ☆...? Pues me da a mi que no xd.
  • Brandon Damkey/bomstad
    i think this was a great into to the series and it had a great pro log made it easy to add charactors and make asumptions latter on.

    I just reviewed this on my blog.To view the full review and other reviews, click here One Piece Volume 8 by Eiichiro Oda I feel like I've been reading too much this week, because I keep reading volume after volume of One Piece, but I can't help it, since I want to know what happens next and I also want to get up to date or at least close to that, since there are currently 661 chapters online and 61 volumes in stores.I won't review all of the book...
  • Austin Gullett
    Everybody's still got dreams; everybody's still got philosophies of sorts; Luffy is still a good boy. This volume is probably the most sentimental yet, but it totally works. Seeing Krieg getting hit is super, super satisfying, and the introduction of Arlong is a long time coming. Nami's story is the longest-running, and this conflict has been waiting in the wings since she was introduced. I'm also almost to the end of what I remember from when I ...
  • Krista Ivy
    Luffy fights again to prove himself and get out of his year of debt. Sanji becomes part of Luffy's crew. They go looking for Nami and find that she was playing them all along and was already a pirate herself under a different Captain.
  • Julie Hayes
    Luffy, Sanji, and Gin survive Don Krieg’s poisonous gas attack. Luffy stands up to the pirate, proclaiming, “I won’t die.” And he means it! He attacks, and actually succeeds in bringing Krieg down on one knee, a feat never before accomplished! But can he handle Krieg’s Mighty Battle Spear?As Chef and Sanji watch the battle between Luffy and Krieg, Chef comments on Luffy’s toughness. “In the end, it’s not about weapons,” he says,...
  • Leah Markum
    Sanji's arc concludes with Luffy finally stepping in and Nami's real arc begins. Because Luffy can't possibly be around when backstory slowly reveals itself, he and Sanji take their time following Zoro and Usopp who followed Nami to her home island after stealing their ship--because she's Nami, and this isn't the first time she's done this.
  • Veronica Ika
    Luffy engages in a really hard battle with Don Krieg, who uses many nasty tricks to win the battle. And yet, Luffy is able to defeat him at last, and that saves the floating restaurant Baratie.Sanji reveales his dream to find All Blue, and overhearing it, Zeff asks Luffy to take Sanji with him. It’s a sad parting between Sanji and the others from Baratie, yet Luffy finally get his fourth crew and a cook! They go after Zoro and Usopp in a small ...
  • Amirah Khan
    Books don't usually make me emotional regardless of how heartbreaking it is, which is strange because I absolutely love reading. I was surprised when I didn't tear up while reading Bridge to Terabithia or Noughts & Crosses, where almost everybody who has read both books have cried. One Piece never fails to bring tears to my eyes, it's just mesmerising. I LOVE IT. Sanji was introduced in the previous volume and already he's one of my favourite cha...
  • Novia
    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...

  • Ottery StCatchpole
    Finally, having reached a part of the manga where I'm not on the anime, I have to say not knowing what's going to happen has made the story, once again, infinitely more enjoyable.The artwork is still Oda-Sensei's singular style, unique, rubbery and awesome. He doesn't try for funny panels or anything crazy, and I appreciate that as it doesn't get in the way of the story. But the Buggy crew adventures I hope are over. Seriously, I've never been a ...
  • Scott Lee
    (Review for 7 & 8 read simultaneously--all commentary, no spoilers)I was told a while ago that as the story gets finds its way this manga gets really good. I'm feeling more hopeful after reading these volumes. Everything up till now has been, in my opinion, annoyingly goofy, but this story kept the humor while taking the "gone-to-far-now-it's-stupid" edge off the inanity, and added some back story that made really interesting characters out of Sa...

    Things are starting to really pick up again! This book was a lot more entertaining than all the other volumes! The ending battle with Sanji's story, was quite dull for me, but once the crew got to Arlong, things started really picking up. Sanji's goodbye was pretty emotional with the old geezer, though. Interesting relationship that they share!Now, I already know what Nami's back story is, though, it'll be interesting to see how all this will pla...

    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. - More of Sanji and Red Leg Zeff, - Much more of Gin (whom I have a creepy crush on atm) and Don Krieg- More about Mihawk (well, just one little scene, where it's explained that the government 'allows' seven pirates to be what they are,...
  • Jessica Robinson
    The Don Krieg fight is easily the most boring arc in the entire run of the series, made even worse by the fact that none of those people ever show up again. So they're doubly pointless. However the Arlong Park arc started in this volume and it's easily the best of the East Blue part, so that saved this a little bit. It's interesting in light of Luffy's current adventure to see one of the more successful early warlords, especially one with so many...
  • Wickedshizuku
    This volume kicks off with Chapter 63: Never Die.After Luffy and the gang meets the cook Sanji, the restaurant ship is attacked by the fearsome Captain Don "Diamond Armor" Kreig. It is Sanji's goal in life is to never let a man starve in front of him. So he feeds Don Kreig only to be spit in the face for payment. I can't tell you how much these chapters really pissed me off. I was outraged, I threw things, and I cried for the cruelty of it all. D...

  • Ryan Frandi
    One of the best earlier issues of OP. You get the conclusion to the Don Kreig fight. The intro of Mihawk. The mention of the 7 Warlords (which is the first real hint of some of the major overarching plot to come way down the line). Sanji's official joining of the Strawhats. And on top of all of that awesome, you get to meet one of the most brutal (even to the most recent archs of the series) OP villains - Arlong. A must read!
  • Robert Beveridge
    Eiichiro Oda, One Piece: I Won't Die (ViZ, 1998)One Piece gets back on track with (finally!) the ending of the Don Krieg battle and us getting back to the rest of the story. We get back in touch with Zoro and Usopp, who have gone chasing after Nami. Unfortunately, when they finally do track her down, they find themselves in somewhat hotter water than they bargained for. Great to see the books getting back to the original storyline, and I'm lookin...
  • Nicole
    We finally see an end to the "big battle" with Don Krieg in this volume (kind of relieved it didn't drag on any longer). Though it was a good battle in the sense that it seemed to stretch Luffy's abilities a bit. I loved the commentary by wise old ex-pirate Chef Zeff. And, of course, I was tickled that we see Sanji finally agree to join Luffy and crew. AND that we're finally tracking down Nami and exposing her true motives!...
  • Aldeena
    Sanji has joined the madness at last! And now Luffy's crew will be cooking up some awesomeness! Meanwhile, Nami turns out to be a pirate who was pretending to be a thief. Wow! And she works for Arlong, one of the baddest badass pirates near the Grand Line. And we meet her foster sister! Who seems super cool. Perhaps that's a new crew member right there, Luffy?
  • Maria Menduni
    This volume links the end of Sanji's past to new beginnings: Sanji becomes part of Luffy's crew and they start their search for Nami, while Zoro and Usop are already around Arlong Park, the location where she was directed when she sailed on the Merry Go.New details are revealed about her life and her real self. Things are getting reeeeally interesting!!
