  • Manveer
    Right in the feels. I don't know why I had the urge to reread this but worth it. One Piece will always remain one of the greatest.And this arc? This arc remains to date one of the most emotional stories that I have ever come across. Nami's story made me cry yet again. There is one point in every Anime/Manga that makes you all emotional and the one that you want to keep rereading all over again. Naruto had his reunion with Kushina, DBZ had Vegeta'...

    No i proszę. Wiedziałam, że masowe zakupy i czytanie tomu za tomem tak się skończy.Prosto w serducho. Historia Nami była wzruszająca w anime, ale w mandze jest jeszcze lepiej. Pomimo, że pamiętałam mniej więcej o co chodzi (chociaż w sumie te akurat odcinki to już dawno oglądałam) łezka się w oku zakręciła. Do tego jeszcze dochodzi bardzo dobre tłumaczenie - język polski wspaniale wypada w tego typu wspominkowych, sentymental...

    Lots and lots of Nami backstory. Also, everyone is a complete idiot.

    “Sawtooth”Arlong and his pirate gang have held Coco village captive for years, extracting tribute on a yearly basis in exchange for allowing them to live. When foolhardy Usopp challenges that rule, the village is angry with him, fearing that he is endangering their safety. Nami appears to see what’s going on, lugging her precious berries. If she can collect 100 million of them, the pirates have promised to sell her the village, and she is d...

    Kicking off this volume with Chapter 72: Suited to One's Level.On Nami's home island there is trouble, and it's the merman kind. Nami's sister fills Usopp in on the dirt that the Arlong crew has been committing for the past eight years. Gin, the man whom was in love with Nami's foster mother Bellemare, is in danger. Usopp in a fit of insanity and courage shoots Arlong, taunts him, and then runs. Very funny scene that lightens the heavy atmosphere...

    Eiichiro Oda is simply spectacular!I haven't found I single volume I didn't love yet. The way he takes his time to introduce the characters and explain why they act the way they do, opening the door on their past.It gets me every. effing. time.This time we get to know Nami a bit better and her story is heartbreaking as well.That sprinkle of female empowerment though, very appreciated Sir! Kudos to you!

    Sus 5 merecidas estrellas porque después de una pelea larga y densa mejoró radicalmente, me conmovió la historia de Nami y me gustó cuando Luffy le pone su sombrero (y tesoro más preciado) y va a pelear por ella, con Sanji, Zoro y Usopp. Muy lindo

    I rated this book 4.5 stars.I just reviewed this on my blog.To view the full review and other reviews, click here One Piece Volume 9 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 662 chapters online and 61 volumes in stores.I ...

    The chapters of this volume correspond to my favorite episodes of the anime--Nami's full backstory, Arlong's betrayal of her, and the most captivating scene of maybe the entire series: Nami stabbing her tattoo, Luffy grabbing her arm, her tearfully asking for help, and Luffy's entrance into Arlong Park. Like, it still gives me goosebumps (if you take the time to read it slowly). This is the best arc of the series so far by a long shot.
  • TheGracefulReader
    THE GOOD Luffy: Luffy's personality really stood out in this volume, especially in his unwillingness to judge and condemn Nami without anything to go on other than others words. I feel that his being uninterested in her story says a lot about Luffy, what has happened or been done in the past may have built you into who you are, but he won't let that sway his opinion he has built of someone. Zoro and Sanji; These two already have a love/hate relat...

The king of pirates is a title given to someone who has traveled through all the world's ocean and is completely free on the ocean. Luffy the captain of the Straw Hat pirate aim for this title. The pirate group would occasionally get into fi...

    Finally, we get some backstory to Nami. The pirates appeared when she was a child. They demanded that each person's life to be paid for. Her and her sister's adoptive mother can only afford to pay for the children. She is killed and Nami is carted off by the pirates when they learn that she is a very young cartographer. They make a deal with her that she can buy back her village from them for 100 million berries. I now love her and her village. ...
  • Leah Markum
    As someone who's rating these a few years after reading them, having a volume titled "Tears" sends a clear message. I remember the scene and vaguely the lines that went with the images. It's one of the most emotional moments in the series. It solidifies the utmost level of trust between Nami and Luffy, and the way the rest of the crew, without words directed to them, know what comes next and the utmost level of steadfastness that they give to the...
  • Sebastian
    I think this is a very good book. In this book we learn about namis past. She was forced by arlong to make maps. Then she tried to buy back her village for 100million berries
  • Veronica Ika
    Like the title suggested, this serial can make the lovers of One Piece shed tears as well.Usopp has got caught by the mermen and in front of all of the mermen, has been executed by Nami. All of Luffy’s crew now realize that Nami is actually a part of Arlong crew, and that the girl has fooled them all this time. Not denying that she killed Usopp, she tells them to leave Arlong Park immediately. It turns out that Usopp is still alive, that Nami a...
  • Kurami Rocket
    The arlong arc seems to be the best arc so far in this series, no doubt. It is filled with emotion, tragedy, sacrifice, and death. Nami's back story is sad. And u know the arlong arc reminds me so much of the Frieza arc from dragon ball z. Frieza is a lot like Arlong, where they both beleive to be the superior species and dictate over people. Though, in Frieza's case he enslaved many, many, people and caused a lot of genocide. Frieza's clan has r...

    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...
  • Marilag
    This volume (and the episode on the anime arc itself) will always make me cry. It's been foolproof so far. And it's why I still read this manga and watch this anime!Just some things happening in this volume (mostly for my benefit, really):(view spoiler)[- We get the seacow/cowfish Momoo's appearance. I think he's adorable.- We get some Nami backstory (SOB).- We get some heart-wrenching betrayal that ties into Nami's backstory, which was doubly sa...

    I enjoyed finding out more about Nami and her past. Being as I read higher-numbered volumes (like V32!) before these lower-numbered volumes, I felt like I was lacking in background information on characters other than Luffy himself. But, Nami has still always been a favorite character of mine. I admire her moreso now, for wanting to save her village and her family. I cannot completely relate to this, but I do understand why such things would be i...

    I can't give a review to every manga volume of One Piece, so I'll just make some once in awhile or if something big happens. One Piece is truly amazing, and it's just volume nine! You grow to love the captain, Luffy, and his cremates quickly. If you like the super an odd story, rubber men, strange fruit, and pirates...this is the manga for you. You can easily grow to hate people in this manga, too. Our current bad guy is Arlong, a fish man. I rea...

    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. - Nami 'killing' Ussop- Introduces Marine Commodore Purin Purin- Chapter 78: Bellemere *insert crying.gif*- Luffy stopping Nami from harming herself, she asking me to help, he agreeing instantly and putting his strawhat! on her head for...

    graphic novelopinion= i love this series and this book. It shows a lot of love and friendship. However, it is also a really sad story for Nami. I think it is very touching and exciting at the same time.recommendation= I strongly recommend this book because it is a really good story and shows the strong bond between others. Also because it shows how money can influence a lot of people and how a parent cares for there children. a character i found ...
  • Debbie
    Nami's backstory was the start of my One Piece addiction. I didn't like Nami that much at first, but after finding out why she loved money so much was an eye opener. She went through so much pain as a child! When she was finally able to pay Arlong so that he'd leave her village, he arranges that all her money be taken away by the government! I was ready to cry. When she started to hurt herself then asked Luffy to help her out, I was teary eyed. O...

    Gearing up for the next massive fight in the series: Arlong & his fish-men goons. But first, some history on how the island came to be in this desperate situation, plus flashback of young Nami, her older sis Nojiko and Belle-Mere's parenting. And those final pages of "Luffy... help ..." will never not make me teary-eyedPS: for some reason VIZ decided Cocoyashi village should just be called Coco. Ok then
  • Sarah Valerie
    Oh. My God. Even though I've seen this entire volume in the anime, I was trying so hard not to burst into tears when I was reading Nami's backstory while at the library. The art for each chapter break is amazing as always, and there are so many other things I loved; Usopp standing up to Arlong, Nami saving his ass as well, the way Zoro was so caring about finding Usopp, and at the end when the four men looked so badass. This has to be one of my f...
