Very few writers can beat Oda at tragic character backstories. And chapter 399 is fantastic!
i was crying. Robin's story is so sad. :(

"- ¡¡Mirad esa bandera, piratas!! ¡¡Es un símbolo que representa el pacto entre más o menos 170 naciones repartidas por los 4 mares y el Grand Line!! ¡¡Ese es el mundo!! ¿Tenéis idea de lo insignificantes que sois ante eso? ¿Tenéis idea de qué gran y terrible organización está detrás de esta mujer?

- ¡Sé quién es el enemigo de Robin! Sogeking.

- ¿Hm?

- Quiero que destruyas esa bandera.

- De acuerdo.

- Esos piratas... ¡¡¡acaban de declararle la guerra al gobierno mundial!!!

- ¡¿Estáis todos locos?!

In the background of Luffy & Crew's assault on Enies Lobby, we learn the backstory of not only Nico Robin, but the World Government itself and, most likely, the true main arc of One Piece's not-at-all silly plot.

A spectacular volume filled with joy, pathos, action, and tenderness in perfect balance. This is the payoff we've been waiting for that makes reading all these volumes worthwhile.

A volume that finally answers the question, "Who exactly is Nico Robin, and what is the mystery behind her past?"

On top of that, one of the most epic moments in One Piece history.

As you can guess, a memorable volume.

A turning point for One Piece - Nico Robin's backstory is finally revealed, and we learn a lot more about the World Government, just in time for Luffy to make a series-changing decision. This volume has a deservedly high reputation among One Piece fans, though there are no new tricks here: a tragic flashback that firms up the heroes' and readers' resolve for an enormous fight to come. This one heaves blocks of the One Piece macro-plot into place, but Robin's arc isn't that dissimilar to Nami's a ...more

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 ever written.

Robin's background was greatly executed, the burden, in the call of the so-called 'absolute justice', all of these things, are really mind-boggling. Violence is the way of justice? People seemed to be blinded by their own weakness, needs and desire, terrifying, because all of these are still legit in the real world. Ahh, who said manga is just manga, this series is awesome! 5 stars!

I WANT TO LIVEEEEEE! Oh One Piece, it's moments like these that make me want to read and reread you all over again. Touched my heart. I love Robin's determination to live, and Luffy's encouragement. I was so happy to finally learn her past, I enjoyed her character (she was so mysterious and sexy, how can one not like her?) and now we understand the hardships she's been through. Her will to continue living through those hellish times is amazing. What's even more amazing is the faith she has in he ...more

the flash back of any member of the straw hat member is always always great and done very well .
Robin's backstory was great, this manga just has so many 'moments' you know. Really great volume.

This is my favorite one piece volume ever. I liked this out of every volume by far.
The whole robin back story was so emotional. everything in this volume was written so perfectly.
maybe because Robin's my favorite straw hat. but this is by far one of the most emotional back stories ever. it also lead to one of the best scenes ever made in one piece. and also the best arc ever.

We kick off this volume with Chapter 389: Response.
The situation has gotten pretty hot between the crew and CP-9. The masked man has now threatened the crew with the Buster Call. We're thrown into an explanation of what the Buster Call can cause. In later chapters we read about Robin's childhood and the destruction of her island.
Cheers and Happy Reading!

Luffy's adventure has become a real inspiration for me in this materialistic and profit-driven world. To dream and really follow your heart, believe you can when no one else does, and find your "nakama" are the best lessons of One Piece. Keep it coming Oda!

He does this often - just as the volumes long fight hits a climax ... FLASHBACK TIME! Where the story once again shines & drags you back in
Time to learn of Robin's home - Ohara - and its most unfortunate demise at hand of World Government all those years ago

Best volume I read of One Piece by far. :)

From this volume, I realized how tall the characters are, especially the female characters. Their legs are so freakin' long! o.o

The saddest, most amazing book of One Piece! Robin wants to live! I think Robin has the worst past of all the Straw Hats so far. It made me cry. T^T

Nico Robin back story, and a declaration of war on the World Government? Yes, and yes. I'll take it.
