As a child, Monkey D. Luffy dreamed of becoming King of the Pirates. But his life changed when he accidentally gained the power to stretch like rubber…at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years, later, Luffy sets off in search of the "One Piece," said to be the greatest treasure in the world...
It's getting better and better. Things started to fall into place, i finally feel for the characters ,love'em and the story got even more exciting and addicting. It's like "Now.. the real journey begins!" Haha

Not my favorite volume but it has one of my favorite lines, i wish i had a review about this but it took me so long to finish that i just don't know how i feel about this volume.
They wanted to go a new place which is called sky islands,

Meanwhile Luffy and the gang are leaving Alubarna, and receiving their final farewell from the Princess Vivi. Get ready for the crew to start a new adventure.

As for this book, one of the core themes of One Piece is believing and chasing your dreams. And this volume beautifully starts the Skypiea arc, teasing the theme. As (view spoiler)[Blackbeard (hide spoiler)] says “A man's dream will never die!”. It's astounding ...more
The way Oda is introducing crucial characters in such casual way amaze me.
There's a reason of why this anime/manga is so popular!
Does it has flaws? Of course, like anything else, but the world and the story that Oda is creating is so entertaining, adventurous and full of emotions sometimes.. I care so deeply about these characters, it's almost ridiculous!
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.

It was pretty dull in various parts, yet kind of interesting in some parts.. Overall, I felt that things could have been quicker paced.
My favorite part though was when the crew got mocked and humiliated for their belief in the Sky Islands and for following their dreams. I like how they stood their ground and took the taunting. Was really surprised that Luffy and Zoro did not fight back at all, despite how they were being ridiculed. I ...more
They witness a ship falling from the sky, and the log pose pointing directly up. After salvaging the ship, straw hats go to an island with dangerous pirates. The Bellamy pirates get into a scuffle while Luffy and Zolo do nothing because they promised Nami. They also meet another unnamed pirate who shares the same idea.
Robin makes a suggestion to visit the ...more
