Reviews One Piece, Volume 09 (One Piece, #9)

  • Χαρά Ζ.
    Goddamn the epicness!I would like to say though, "The walk to Arlong Park" is so much better in the anime. Luffy hands over his hat to Nami, Zoro puts on his bandana and Sanji lights a cigarette. The epic soundtrack on the back and the "Walk". You know the enemies are fucked xD I love rereading the whole series, i really do <3
  • 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'...

    The Arlong Park arc continues as Luffy edges closer to Cocoyashi village in an attempt to get his ship and friends back. The story does a great job selling Arlong as the main villain. The cold monster is pure evil, always acting like his cruel acts are backed up by honor and pride. His hold on the island and its people deliver a new dynamic the overall story has yet to have. Usopp learns full well why Fishmen are not to be trifled with when he is...
  • Christopher
    Lots and lots of Nami backstory. Also, everyone is a complete idiot.

    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...

    Favorite moments: Nami stabs her hand to save Usopp!! Honestly that would leave sucha wicked scar. Classic Luffy moment when they've got eyewitness and Nami confessing he still doesn't believe it and so just takes a nap. and of course one of my favorite Luffy and Nami moments when she asks him for help and he puts his hat on her. Love it.
  • Yaiza
    ¡MALDITO ODA! Da igual que ya sepa toda la historia, consigue hacerme llorar al leerla otra vez.
  • Jesse Slater
    Crying!!! (The title is accurate...)Ready for the retribution. *Starts next volume*
  • Michael Schmid
    Namis Vergangenheit macht mich immer wieder aufs Neue fertig und gerade der Satz "Rette mich" und dann "Selbstverständlich!" Gänsehaut pur! Einfach nur ultra mega!!!!!
  • Junpei
    Nami is suffering from her past. Her mother was killed by fish-man Arlong. Fish-man has ten times bigger power than human so people who live village are not able to beat Arlong. I feel a bad feeling when Arlong deceived Nami.
  • Manami Yamaguchi
    Nami says “ Luffy, help me.” This is one of the famous scenes of ONE PIECE stories. The crew mate heard what happened to her many years ago from Nojiko who is Naomi’s sister. They decide to beat up Arlong !
  • Julie Hayes
    “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...

    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...

    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...
  • Maria Menduni
    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!
  • Paula
    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
  • Thelma
    This one has the perfect title. I'm totally crying right now. I always start crying when we reach the flashbacks about Nami's childhood and then at the end when Luffy puts the hat on her head I just sob like a lunatic. I really like this arc.
  • Jorge Lucas
    Most of One Piece flashbacks showing the crew's backstory are amazing!
  • Lisa
    All the one piece books are great! READ THEEEM!
  • Vic - Lost in Fiction
    One Piece: Volume 9: 4.5 Stars (9/10 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...
  • JDR
    Alright, One Piece has successfully created what I would consider to be the first truly phenomenal (a) volume and (b) story arc. What I always found beautiful about One Piece is that although the atmosphere tends to remain very uplifting surrounding Luffy with his fearlessness and ability to give the reader the confidence that he could best any given villain, the foundation of the narrative is founded in the emotional roots within these begin...
  • Ashley
    One Piece volume 9: Tears takes into Nami's absolutely heartbreaking backstory as we finally learn what drove her into joining the Arlong pirates. Let's break it down. Nami this is arc is definitely her own very special story. I must say that about the time I was almost through the backstory I was in tears. The things that not only Nami but her entire village have endured at the hands of the Arlong Pirates are enough to bring anyone to watery eye...
  • Josh Whittington
    This volume is one of the more plot heavy ones, with not a lot of action to speak of. That’s not a bad thing though, because we get a lot of insight into Nami’s motivations and her ties to Arlong. Nami’s allegiances flip-flop a number of times; it happens just enough to keep you on your toes while not too frequent to get ridiculous. I could remember some of the key parts of this arc from the anime, but if I hadn’t then some parts would ha...
  • Jake
    This volume begins the strongest part of the East Blue Arc, Arlong and Nami's backstory. Nami is interesting, in that, early on she doesn't proclaim a goal that seems to fit with the Straw Hats. As this story arc continues, readers learn more and more about Nami's past, and while several of the characters have tragic pasts, Nami's, in my opinion, takes the cake as the worst. This does lend itself to really dynamic and interesting early storytelli...

    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 ...
  • Austin Gullett
    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...
  • Scott Lee
    This one gets the gang back together after they were split up during the events of volumes seven and eight, reveals Nami's history, and sets up the conflict between Luffy and crew and Arlong's pirates without starting the battle.
  • Michela (bookishbranches)
    Ohh, the feels. In this one we get Nami's backstory and while I like Nami in the past few volume's I'd been on the fence about her, so this one solidified the fact that I like her and despite everything she's gone through she still pushes on.Also in this volume I think I've encountered my favorite scene thus far: Nami sitting there, everything lost from her again, and asking Luffy to help, who then gives her his beloved hat.
  • Jarb Gared
    "Lagrimas" es el titulo perfecto para este volumen. Ahora recuerdo por que estos capitulos comenzaron a hacer de este anime mi favorito hace años. Y es que lo vere/leere las veces que sea y seguire sintiendo lo mismo.
