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.

Very touching, especially when Robin's intention was revealed! Robin is a great woman!!!! Luffy and Zoro were so cool putting a hole into the Aqua Laguna! I mean, that's like tsunami and how did they do that to this huge waves! Pure awesomeness! 4.75 stars~

Wow. OP really is picking up. I don't think I have ever given any other arc this many stars before.

In this vol, it is revealed the true reason Robin has decided to work for and obey the government - everything she is doing is to protect the lives of her friends. Even if that means she has to sacrifice herself! Upon realizing this, the crew quickly give chase to where Robin heads, even braving a gigantic storm and risking their lives to save their friend! I just love how this shows what a strong

ol D. Roger was known as the Pirate King, the strongest and most infamous being to have sailed the Grand Line. The capture and death of Roger by the World Government brought a change throughout the world. His last words before his death revealed the location of the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece. It was this revelation that brought about the Grand Age of Pirates, men who dreamed of finding One Piece (which promises an unlimited amount of riches and fame), and quite possibly

The dominoes of the Water Seven saga start to topple and the momentum starts ramping up. This volume runs on two tracks - untangling Robin's motivations and setting off to rescue her, and dealing with the catastrophic high tide that's been looming for around twenty chapters. The former brings on the emotional beats - corny, manipulative, but effective. The latter gives you the action set pieces, which are as absurd (fighting a wave with swords) and gloriously inventive (a race between water-boun ...more

Two Strawhats talked about their families during this arc: Sanji and Franky. Franky said to Tom that his parents were pirates that threw him overboard. If my math is correct and if they are still alive, they would be 24 years older in the present story. Sanji spoke of his parents to Rob Lucci, saying that they didn't teach him/raise him well. If you've read the most recent chapters this makes perfect sense.

The usual shonen tropes of upping the odds to next level of Impossible! every other chapter can't hold back to sheer maniacal energy of this series

nope, Robin you still suck and I wish you'd fall out permanently. Her story is easily the weakest so far (yes, her story glimpses are beaten out even by Franky in interesting character department)

Meanwhile, onwards to Enies Lobby! Yeah! On a steam water-train which may or may not be a death-trap in itself

A wonderfully creative world of pirates, this series captures the imagination as Monkey D. Luffy sets out to find the pirate king's lost treasure, One Piece, and to claim the title of Pirate King. Oh, and because he ate a Devil Fruit as a child, Luffy is made of rubber. A bizarre and enthralling adventure, One Piece remains at its core a story about the most elusive treasure of all: freedom

About halfway through the Water Seven storyline, Usopp just keeps getting more annoying, we're probably free of flashbacks, and everyone has now made friends. It's all so typically shonen, but Oda does manage to bring a manic energy and a wacky charm to the usual themes.

CP9 is racing away with Robin & Usopp as captives. It's up to Nami and Tony to rally the crew and find a way to chase CP9 down.

This whole sea train is silly, yet somehow it seems to fit in to One Piece's absurd world.

This is a good long story. Telling us about other side of pirate. How silly, fun, faithful they are, but also just like the other pirates in the world, how strong and brave they are.

Ha, this entire volume just made me really happy : )
and the Sodgeking thing with Usopp was so stupid XD
