    My One Piece Read Through Thread

    So basically I've decided to start reading through One Piece from chapter 1. I never REALLY followed the storyline back when it was on Toonami (those good ol days), I just watched it for the fighting. And my buds have been recommending it, so... yeah.

    Read along with me! However I'm on chapter 47 right now. I'll be posting minor predictions and thoughts on different aspects of the story.

    But right now I can say I think Usopp had the best intro. The others were good (and Sanji's right now is getting pretty exciting), but his was just really, really good. I love character intros Grin

    Re: My One Piece Read Through Thread

    I probably wouldn't have made it reading from chapter 1. I saw some of the anime up to sky island when it first came to america, then my brother kept haunting me with the one of the best fights of the entire series. Then, out of curiosity I looked at the most recent chapter to see what was going on. That blew me away so I kept on reading. After that I went back and watched the anime from when I remember leaving off and caught up in like a week or two.

    After some time after that I finally decided to read the manga from chaoter 1.

    I am a very over complicated person, BUT I REGRET NOTHING!!!

    I said all that to say this, "Its a really good series there will be some slow moments, but if you stick with it you will never put it down." OP is Awesome

    What a journey, kind of like mine with Naruto and thank you.

    And Sanji just agreed to cook for those guys and got punched. That was a bit surprising... and I'm having trouble reading how Luffy is reacting to that, he's always so stoic.

    EDIT: And he just got blasted with a meatball. Wow.

    Re: My One Piece Read Through Thread

    -I really like Sanji's pirate group. They have a lot of personality and don't afraid of nothing.
    -What's up with all of these Buggy the Clown covers? Are they supposed to be telling me something or is Buggy just that cool? And the Zeff guy just got a lot more interesting.
    -New favorite character just switched to Zeff
    -New favorite character just switched to Luffy
    -New favorite character just switched back to Zeff again
    -Their ship just got cut in half... wonder who's doing it.
    -Yeah, the Hawk Eyed Man, I remember him from some YT videos but those seemed like it was waay later on in the series... so I'm going to predict that he attacks their ships, has some dialogue and somehow disappears again. I don't think the most renowned swordsman in the world is ready to be killed by Zoro just yet, that's too big of a feat and it hasn't even reached chapter 50.
    -New favorite character just switched to Hawk Eyed Man
    -ZORO AND THE DUDE ARE ABOUT TO FIGHT
    -WOW
    -SUCH HYPE
    -Aaaaand... Nami took up the last page. Women are so confusing.

    Join me friend!

    And okay, back with updates.
    -So that dude just picked up a boat? It's about time he does something impressive.
    -Sanji has superman legs.
    -I really love the cooking pirates... Their zeal is very admirable, and I like the pride they take in their restaurant and still fight even against the master of the East Blue. They're a great group, they are.
    -And a new guy just popped up... Again?!
    -AND THE DRAMA UNFOLDS
    -Good gravy... Commander of the second division... Now we got 3 more of these guys to go through, since he has 5 total divisions iirc... And he doesn't even look cool tbh
    -mm... I know this is just a manga and logic should 100% apply... But it's kind of weird how he's grabbing his knife by the cutting part while another guy is pulling it by the handle... Not the smartest thing I've ever seen.
    -Okay, it's about time Sanji starts getting some action, and its good
    -Seeing as how it's obvious he's suppose to surpass Keffs feet of kicking through steel, he's about to kick the shield dude far away or something.
    --Dang... I was expecting Luffy to do something tricky to dodge that flail... But he just tanked it. Good job Luffy.
    -Wooow.. So he just flew into the dudes neck and made him hit his neck on the shield and bleed? That was actually a clever method of making him bleed.
    -I wonder what Usopp would do in this situation to be helpful.

    I rarely make threads and I don't make threads for every manga I read because I only read Naruto and 1 piece. I'm not disturbing anybody by making a new post every update, I'm editing my old one. Sorry if you dislike it.

    And why would I make a thread for an update in a thread all about updates if you don't like this thread just ignore it dude

    Re: My One Piece Read Through Thread

    Thanks for the support

    And I'm on chapter 62 now, left the updates for a while. Just some thoughts-

    -Sanji... Is a walking tank. Not really in the aspect that he can take smashes to the skull that would crush trucks and still talk, but that he can keep standing up no matter what.
    -It's also more enjoyable than Naruto in the aspect that its not so corny (Naruto as of now is still my no. 1, but I'm just saying it can be really corny sometimes).
    -So... That Gin dude just revealed his 'Demon' persona. Reminds me of Zabuza.
    -And he just broke down into tears of regret? What's next, Hidden Mist Jutsu?
    -Surprising how Zeff is just standing on the sidelines.
    -Calling it right now too, Zoro and Usopp are about to make a big intro sometimes soon... Or maybe not but I think they will
    -And I can safely say now I greatly dislike Kreig, he's a punk and jerk

    -So now Gin is about to get killed by Kreig because he can't be the weapon/soldier Kreig needs him to be. Yet, Gin is still loyal and protective of him. I'm sensing Zabuza and Haku fever.
    -LUFFY YOU CAN BEAT THIS DON GUY!

    Since you've already read this part in the manga, see the anime version since it's well done

    That was pretty well done... But I've never been a big fan of anime, I'm a manga guy. I may pick it up later though, maybe...

    -More updates. Luffy just used Gumo Gumo (right?) Bullet on the dude so I'm hoping he's dead now
    -Nope... Still not dead yet...
    -One thing I can say about One Piece for sure is that it's weird how EVERY hit that each person lands keeps making me think that was the final hit, mainly because of how climatic each attack is. Like that Gomu Bullet, I could've sworn that was it. But he tanked it again...
    -And now he just suicide bombed the hold ship. Waiting to see how Luffy counters this.
    -He jumped. Thought he was going to bounce all of them back at him at once.
    -YES! HE'S DEAD! FOR SURE THIS TIME!

    Once you'll read the manga, you probably will never watch the animated version then. My advice is to watch the episodes first.

    Re: My One Piece Read Through Thread

    Okay, I actually watched my 5 eps a while ago.
    So it was much better than I expected, but I found myself wishing I could get back to the manga. Anime just isn't the thing for me :[

    But back to my updates!
    -You guys Luffy let his badass side flip OUT when he saw Nami crying. I always love characters who are protective of their friends, it's a great quality of a strong leader. Especially with all the mess she put him through (though like, 90% of it was justified), he doesn't know her story and was extremely passionate about her feelings. I loved it.
    And this scan right here

    Was just woah for me. Loved it. Amazing. 10/10 would look at again.

    -And Nami's story was very, very touching as well as well thought out. I always thought I got the best of the best storytelling with Naruto, but this is blowing my mind. Her mom, Bellemiere, Arlongs entrance, his ruthlessness and all that jazz just made everything finally come together and explained her actions in a very good way.

    -I also like how he was able to just keep that flashbacks in a short 3 chapters, but didn't make it seem rushed. Very well done.

    -I never noticed it until now, but Luffy is a man of few words. He's ex
    tremely goofy when he's on Going Merry, but when he's anywhere else and about to fight his statements become very stoic and direct. He's especially quiet when he gets angry as far as I can tell. Like the way he just walked up to Arlong and knocked him off his seat? That was insane.

    -Speaking of the devil fruit, that Arlong/Officers fight VS Luffy/Crew fight was great. Loved every chapter of it. I think that there's less stress in this series when it comes to characters using new moves because not many attacks can be catagorized as 'asspulls' like Naruto. In Naruto said character has onscreen training shown or is shown starting it and finishes offscreen and comes back with a new tech. Otherwise whenever somebody uses something randomly out of the blue, it's just seen as an asspull. Fortunately for One Piece you don't have concepts of Jutsu that requires pre established mentions or foreshadowing, but instead normal attacks that they can think of in the heat of the battle.

    -My favorite fight of the 3 was Luffy VS Arlong. Usopp VS the lip dude definitely had a charming sense of humor to it however.

    -The climax to their fight was extremely intense too. It went beyond beating him because he made Nami cry, but seemed to be much, much more personal trading blow for blow in that tiny prison room. Was a powerful fight. Emotions were high.

    -Nami leaving was a good laugh.

    -I like Zoro's method of testing luck against curse.

    -The buggy dude is back? Don't see what chance he has of winning since Luffy has just kept getting stronger and stronger.

    -I'm starting to like the White Smoker guy.

    -Even treated a 8 year old to 5 scoops of ice cream, baller.

    -On chap 99, waiting to see where this goes.


    -Chapter99

    -Sanji's 'do you believe in god' quote was damn sure fitting in that situation

    -I can tell that Smoker guy has a connection of some sort with the old pirate king guy (can't remember his name). He got super shook up when Luffy smiled and suddenly got all units ready.

    -So I'm on page 15 right now, about to predict how the fights are about to go-
    [ROUND 1]
    Luffy fights Alida or whatever
    Zoro fight Buggy
    Sanji fights the dark emo guy
    Usopp is going to run into the lion dude and fight him

    [ROUND 2]
    Luffy fights the Smoker guy (hopefully he doesn't kill him, he's a good guy)
    Zoro fights the Tashigi (?) girl, just to make it poetic
    A new unit commander comes in to fight Sanji
    Usopp and Nami work on the boat

    Let's see if I'm right on any of these.

    -Captain Smoker just keeps getting more and more ba by the page.

    -I really hope it's just Luffy and pirates invading his island that he doesn't like. I'd hate for him to have a prejudice against Devil Fruit users in general, and be that guy.

    -Hmm... looks like I was wrong about Luffy fighting the other DF user and Buggy's crew. Shame sh was caught so easily though. Guess they're just skipping ahead to round 2.

    -Not even gonna lie, Sanji's 'protect all women' complex can get a little too annoying at times. Not as bad as Sakura's Sasuke syndrome, but still annoying nonetheless.

    -I'm starting to like Zoro and Tashigi's cat/dog relationship. It's short but still.

    -Zoro VS Tashigi, check.

    -Luffy VS Cap Smoker, in progress...

    -Hm, so it seems he has the ability to solidify (for the lack of a better word) his smoke and actually grasp things with it. Veeeeerry interesting.

    -And okay, I'm on page 22 atm but I'm going to predict now that Sanji fights the dude on the last page of Chap 99 with the scar/tattoo on his face.

    -Holy crap.

    -Holy crap.

    -Calling it now, Cap Smoker is a DF user.

    -Bah... looks like they're running away. Wasted prediction.


    EDIT: I'm gonna start putting spoiler wraps around these updates per chapter. They can get pretty big I'm sure.

Her mom, Bellemiere, Arlongs entrance, his ruthlessness and all that jazz just made everything finally come together and explained her actions in a very good way.

    -I also like how he was able to just keep that flashbacks in a short 3 chapters, but didn't make it seem rushed. Very well done.

    -I never noticed it until now, but Luffy is a man of few words. He's ex
    tremely goofy when he's on Going Merry, but when he's anywhere else and about to fight his statements become very stoic and direct. He's especially quiet when he gets angry as far as I can tell. Like the way he just walked up to Arlong and knocked him off his seat? That was insane.

    -Speaking of the devil fruit, that Arlong/Officers fight VS Luffy/Crew fight was great. Loved every chapter of it. I think that there's less stress in this series when it comes to characters using new moves because not many attacks can be catagorized as 'asspulls' like Naruto. In Naruto said character has onscreen training shown or is shown starting it and finishes offscreen and comes back with a new tech. Otherwise whenever somebody uses something randomly out of the blue, it's just seen as an asspull. Fortunately for One Piece you don't have concepts of Jutsu that requires pre established mentions or foreshadowing, but instead normal attacks that they can think of in the heat of the battle.

    -My favorite fight of the 3 was Luffy VS Arlong. Usopp VS the lip dude definitely had a charming sense of humor to it however.

    -The climax to their fight was extremely intense too. It went beyond beating him because he made Nami cry, but seemed to be much, much more personal trading blow for blow in that tiny prison room. Was a powerful fight. Emotions were high.

    -Nami leaving was a good laugh.

    -I like Zoro's method of testing luck against curse.

    -The buggy dude is back? Don't see what chance he has of winning since Luffy has just kept getting stronger and stronger.

    -I'm starting to like the White Smoker guy.

    -Even treated a 8 year old to 5 scoops of ice cream, baller.

    -On chap 99, waiting to see where this goes.


    -Chapter99

    -Sanji's 'do you believe in god' quote was damn sure fitting in that situation

    -I can tell that Smoker guy has a connection of some sort with the old pirate king guy (can't remember his name). He got super shook up when Luffy smiled and suddenly got all units ready.

    -So I'm on page 15 right now, about to predict how the fights are about to go-
    [ROUND 1]
    Luffy fights Alida or whatever
    Zoro fight Buggy
    Sanji fights the dark emo guy
    Usopp is going to run into the lion dude and fight him

    [ROUND 2]
    Luffy fights the Smoker guy (hopefully he doesn't kill him, he's a good guy)
    Zoro fights the Tashigi (?) girl, just to make it poetic
    A new unit commander comes in to fight Sanji
    Usopp and Nami work on the boat

    Let's see if I'm right on any of these.

    -Captain Smoker just keeps getting more and more ba by the page.

    -I really hope it's just Luffy and pirates invading his island that he doesn't like. I'd hate for him to have a prejudice against Devil Fruit users in general, and be that guy.

    -Hmm... looks like I was wrong about Luffy fighting the other DF user and Buggy's crew. Shame sh was caught so easily though. Guess they're just skipping ahead to round 2.

    -Not even gonna lie, Sanji's 'protect all women' complex can get a little too annoying at times. Not as bad as Sakura's Sasuke syndrome, but still annoying nonetheless.

    -I'm starting to like Zoro and Tashigi's cat/dog relationship. It's short but still.

    -Zoro VS Tashigi, check.

    -Luffy VS Cap Smoker, in progress...

    -Hm, so it seems he has the ability to solidify (for the lack of a better word) his smoke and actually grasp things with it. Veeeeerry interesting.

    -And okay, I'm on page 22 atm but I'm going to predict now that Sanji fights the dude on the last page of Chap 99 with the scar/tattoo on his face.

    -Holy crap.

    -Holy crap.

    -Calling it now, Cap Smoker is a DF user.

    -Bah... looks like they're running away. Wasted prediction.


    EDIT: I'm gonna start putting spoiler wraps around these updates per chapter. They can get pretty big I'm sure.
    LOL! seeing your reactions to all this is cool and funny , and yes Smoker is a DF user

    But back to my updates!
    -You guys Luffy let his badass side flip OUT when he saw Nami crying. I always love characters who are protective of their friends, it's a great quality of a strong leader. Especially with all the mess she put him through (though like, 90% of it was justified), he doesn't know her story and was extremely passionate about her feelings. I loved it.
    And this scan right here

    What this guy said! Yeah Smoker is a badass with one of the stronger Devil Fruits (there's been 80+ DF's in One Piece , so far you've seen 4).
