This was such a fun time! I LOOOOOVE pirates in general, so I had a great time reading this. And Luffy is so ridiculous and funny so that's a plus.

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.

I wrote the review for the whole One Piece manga not only for volume one. One Piece is the only manga I've been loyal to for the past ten years.As I grew up I choose to read more serious book and leave manga behind. But One piece is an exception. If you read the manga, you will see how every character, mainly the protagonist have very compelling and charismatic personality. Luffy is the captain, a happy go lucky person who sometimes act stupid (along with Ussop,Chopper and Franky) but very respo ...more

The beginning of one of the most epic manga stories ever. I gave only 4 star for first volume because the world has not much revealed. But on next volumes you could see the fantasy world of One Piece is rich, fresh, and populated with many interesting characters.

The world of pirates seems pretty awesome when you are a kid! No rules and parents, just treasure hunts and palm trees and lots of laughter and maybe a colorful parrot on your shoulder - that's the life!! The genius of One Piece is that it perfectly captures these childhood fantasies, turning them into a rollicking adventure that is anchored by relatable characters while bubbling over with fun and enthusiasm. It is no surprise at all that One Piece has been one of the world's best-selling comic- ...more

I've gone on and on about my hatred for shonen manga. I've said before it's franchises like Naruto and Yu Gi Oh that form what most westerners conceive to be the whole of manga-- which is a problem, because as long as manga is seen as just a teen fad, some amazing works of comic art and literature are being completely overlooked by a large audience that might otherwise devour them. Sure, Seinen manga seems to have a small foothold now, but what about Gekiga? Or Josei? How about some of the class ...more

Let's get this straight. I am a hardcore One Piece fan. I have been since forever. I remember watching it on tv as a kid. Then they stopped airing the show for some reason.

Eiichiro Oda is an amazing Mangaka. One Piece is for a reason the number one bestselling manga in the world. The amount of work and dedication that goes into every page of One Piece is something special and makes you respect Oda as an amazing artist & mind.

I have been following this series for the last 14 years and I can say with confidence that One Piece is one of the few long running mangas where there are hardly if not any story faults/gaffes/plots holes. The story is very consistent and

One Piece is the best selling manga of all time. And it's not close, with approximate sales at 380 million volumes.

Normally, I wouldn't even review something this iconic. It's like giving my opinion on Batman. And not the most recent Batman, but iconic original series Batman. You just don't. It's Batman. But a large majority of my GR friends don't read manga, even among the comic readers, or at least don't review it here if they do. So let's talk about one of the most famous manga of all time. P

OMG! I loved it!

One Piece is about a boy named Monkey D. Luffy who is determined to become the "King of the Pirates" by discovering the hidden treasure of the late King of the Pirates, Gold Roger. The only problem is Luffy is too young to join Red-Haired Captain Shanks's crew and he can't swim! When he accidentally eats the fruit of the gum-gum tree, he ruins his chance of ever being able to swim, and now he can stretch like rubber! Captain Shanks sails away but first leaves Luffy his beloved s

This has got to be the ugliest manga art I've ever seen. Sorry, but it's true. I really, really, really don't like this style and I knew that going in because I've seen caps from the anime. It's over the top and unpleasant and cluttered and sort of makes my eyes ache to look at it.

and yet
there is something about the story. Don't ask me what, but there's something. It's not totally bad. It's absurd and banal at worst, silly at best, but I guess it has potential. I could do without the chee
I mean, One Piece is hilarious and epic. It doesn't get much better than that. I see the hype and Oda's brilliant series deserves every bit of it and more.

But I refuse to rate every single volume of One Piece. I like to think I have a life. So, uhm, just read One Piece. One Piece is awesome.

Zwar nichts Neues, aber OP is einfach geilo :D
My first One Piece manga...

And with Luffy, my journey begins, a long journey, with Luffy and so many characters to come, in the Golden Age of Piracy...

I must be a brave guy, to start something so huge and detailed as this manga; those who watch its anime or are following the manga know how much time it'll take to see the finishing of this epic and long voyage of pirate adventures...

I've decided to read the manga rather than watch the anime, it'll be quicker and the fun I'll be getting will be in

It is one of greatest Japanese manga. More than nine million copies are sold per month in the world. The manga is about one boy who will change and rule the entire world.
Pirates King (Roger) lets everybody know about his treasure which is called ONE PIECE and he hides it in the grand line before he is executed by the hand of a Navy organization ruled by bad people. Twenty two years later, a young man(Luffy)starts his adventure journey to look for the treasure and to become the pirate king. He st

The author, Eiicho Oda, created, One Piece, because as a kid Oda was interested in pirates and being a manga book artist/writer. Af first, he submitted a book called Pandaman for a contest. At the age of 17, he submitted his work called, Wanted!, and this won several awards. At the age of 19, he looked back on all his work and decided to create, One Piece, which included some of the main characters from his previous works. He worked as an assistant artist for Nobuhiro Watsuki and presented his ...more

One of the best manga, ever. And my most favorite manga all the time. It's part of my teen life and now part of my adult life. You have no idea how much i love this manga. I laughed like crazy one time, and cried like a baby the other time.

So many tears have falling down since i read or watch this series. I cried when Nami lost her mother. I cried when they were in Sorajima. I cried (a little) when i read Robin Neechan's story of Ohara. Oh, i forgot. I also cried when in Alabasta's war. I cried

So, this is where it all began...
This is the beginning...
Of a masterpiece.

One Piece is by far, the best anime/manga that I've ever seen/read.
My one regret is that when I started watching it, I was still pretty immature, and wasn't able to "experience" it the way I should have, which is why I'm tempted to re watch and or read it again. Though, of course, 700+ episodes and 600+ chapters are kind of a letdown...
It may be long, the anime's been running for 17 years, the manga a bit more, and it's s

Pertama kali dibeli dan dibaca pada bulan November 2002.

Yesss, akhirnya aku menemukan satu set lengkap dari nomor 1 - 59, untuk menggantikan set One Piece-ku yang menguap tanpa sisa!

Ini salah satu serial komik favoritku yang wajib kubeli ulang.

Dan, ya... tentu saja kalau dibeli ulang juga wajib dibaca ulang :D

One Piece was for many years unnoticed by the majority of the anime community. Many claim that the first arc is boring but I disagree; for a perpetual on-going shonen series One Piece is fine since the very start. But hey, it takes more than that to have a good show and it does deliver elsewhere as well. For example, its characters are quite colourful and likable for shonen material and they are constantly making lots of jokes with their personality quirks. Seeing each one of them individually m ...more
