One Piece: Romance Dawn Reviews

    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.

    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 responsible towards his nakama. My favorite is Zorro, a very responsible nakama, who's willing to go trough pain and suffers just to protect the others. The villains are equally awesome too, and to be honest the villains are sometimes better than the main character.

    Story wise, the setting was in wonderful world we never imagine, different enemies, and a plot twist we never expect. The One Piece World is very diverse, with unique creature and stronger enemies as the level going up. The incredible detail and meticulous (hands off to Oda) about every part of it, the world government, the sichibukai, the pirate and even for the additional character. This manga is insanely funny!!

    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

    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 all the strings seem to come together perfectly sooner or later.

    A few complaints regarding the manga would be that it is very slow paced. Some archs are totally unnecessary and boring. For a 14-year-old running manga, which according to Oda has 14 more years to go, it has very few "epic" moments. Just one to be exact and that was the White Beard arch. Oda tends to keep a lot of secrets to keep you guessing and speculating, which is fun at start but after 14 years you do get a bit angry.

    This manga is not meant for everyone and it is a huge dedication, but once you start reading it.... It is almost impossible to stop.

    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. The problem was that it was dubbed in greek and they changed the title and i had no clue from where to start in order to find it. Since then i have been searching for it.

    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. The problem was that it was dubbed in greek and they changed the title and i had no clue from where to start in order to find it. Since then i have been searching for it. I was in desparare need to watch it. And believe me, back then it was not easy to find anything cz internet was not like today's at all. I started loosing hope and i completetly lost track of it for some years but all this time i've never stopped being attached to it. Then i found everything, got obsessed about it, loved it, adored it. I started reading the manga later on and there are some minor things in there that are different from the anime but it is 100% the same story. I am telling you, the manga is soooo good <3. This is the first volume and it contains chapters 1-8. It also contains all the feels and all the nostalgia. This is the beggining of everything. Oda sensei is amazing. He is giving us an adventure filled with love, humor, values. Beautiful story, amazing characters. Cannot reccomend more. If you like manga and anime, read or watch this, or do both.

    ONE PIECE ROCKS <3

    **I keep rereading this and how can i possibly express how much i love it?**

    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. Perhaps you've seen the anime.

    One Piece begins with the execution of the King of the Pirates, who, just before the executioner's blade fell, announced that his treasure, called One Piece, was available to anyone who could find it. People are greedy, so the Great Pirate Era begins.

    Skipping ahead a decade or so finds us following the young boy Luffy, who wants to be a pirate more than anything, despite not being able to swim. In a moment of plot, he eats the Gum-Gum Fruit, one of the Devil Fruits. Now each devil fruit gives a special power to the person who eats it, and this one basically turns his body into rubber. This means he can't be hurt (pretty much). Bullets bounce off of him, he can punch really far (somehow), etc.

    Skip forward another decade and we have Luffy as a young man, still determined to be King of the Pirates! He then sets off on his adventure to find himself a pirate crew and locate the One Piece treasure. The rest of the volume has him run into a couple of enemies, including one with an axe for a hand, and a couple of new friends, including Zolo, who uses the insane three-sword technique.

    Through it all Luffy approaches everything like it is just one big adventure, even while people are trying to murder him. He's a fairly odd pirate, really. It's all about friendship and following your dreams, even when they are completely nuts.

    Let's talk art. Every now and then, in fact if you scroll down this page to the other reviews is one, you will find someone who says the art is terribad. These people are wrong. You are welcome not to like it, just as you are welcome to not like anything. But you're still wrong. :D

    One Piece manages to have clean art while still being very kinetic. I'd say it is art that could easily adapt to a cartoon... but there's an anime with over 700 episodes, and the art is pretty much an exact match, so I suppose that is obvious.

    The primary issue I have with One Piece, and this is true of pretty much all manga, is that it expects you to be in for the long haul. While there are a couple of completed stories in this volume, it is obviously just the setup for things to come. Those of us reading american comics for decades are used universe resets and such seemingly all the time. You don't typically get that with manga (at least not the stuff that gets translated to English. I wouldn't know about the rest of the market.. and watch One Piece be the exception since I haven't read most of it yet). They aren't typically books you pick up with the something recent like you often can with american comics. Start back at the beginning and catch up. There are currently over 80 volumes of this, and it's still going, so there's a lot to catch up on. But it's the best selling manga of all time, so it can't be too bad.

    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

    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 classics like Rose of Versailles? Anytime Viz licenses something that isn't just teenagers shooting psychic rays at each other, it's a miracle. So why, you must be wondering, would I give One Piece five stars?

    Because it's pure cartooning.

    Out of the "big three" Shonen Jump titles, One Piece is by far the superior. While Dragon Ball is an obvious influence of both One Piece and Naruto, Naruto is only a derivative of Akira Toriyama's work, where as Eiichiro has pushed beyond those limits, creating an art style and world just as unique to himself as Toriyama's was with Dr. Slump. But even as slapstick as One Piece can be, Eiichiro has the storytelling ability to make you care for his large cast of characters in the most absurd situations-- something Bleach hasn't been able to do since somewhere in the Soul Society Arc. However more flashier Bleach may be, One Piece makes up for it with heart.

    Sure, One Piece isn't perfect. Like any popular manga running in a weekly magazine, there's times you can tell Eiichiro and his assistants are rushing to get those 18 pages done. And of course, with over 60 some volumes in the series, it's amazing how far a single storyline can stretch, and 600 chapters can be quite daunting for new readers. But when Eiichiro and his guys are firing on all cylinders, this is the comic that justifies Jump's existence.

    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.

    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.

    One Piece is famous for being that one manga that absolutely refuses to end. At 89 (!) volumes and counting, it's one of the longest-running series in history, and an extremely intimidating undertaking for many new readers like me because of that. Still, its insane popularity and the pirate adventure premise piqued my interest enough to check at least the first volume, and I have to say — I'm into it!

    One Piece is famous for being that one manga that absolutely refuses to end. At 89 (!) volumes and counting, it's one of the longest-running series in history, and an extremely intimidating undertaking for many new readers like me because of that. Still, its insane popularity and the pirate adventure premise piqued my interest enough to check at least the first volume, and I have to say — I'm into it!

    One Piece is about a young boy named Luffy, whose biggest dream has always been becoming the Pirate King and finding One Piece, the greatest treasure in the world. At one point, he accidentally eats a magic fruit that gives him the ability to stretch his body just like Reed Richards, but it also (for some baffling reason) makes him unable to swim. One day he decides to embark on an adventure, looking for a ship and a crew.

    It's quite humorous in a way that reminded me of one of my favourite video game series ever, Monkey Island. While One Piece is nowhere near the same level of wit as Ron Gilbert's legendary games, I will still take my comedy pirate adventure fix wherever I can get it. Luffy is a fun main character who takes shit from no one, no matter their status or reputation, and I loved every moment when he punched some big-shot in the face. The rest of the cast looks promising, although no one truly stands out so far — it's mostly Luffy's show at this point.

    The artwork looks very nice! It's cartoony and a bit over-exaggerated, but it works really well with the tone of the storytelling. I have to mention that I was reading this volume online through some not-so-official sources (don't judge me), and I had a fully-coloured version — I'm not sure if this version is officially available in english, but oh boy, the colour really suits this manga. I think if I were to read this in black-and-white, I would have a bit more trouble distinguishing between certain characters, especially female ones, because they all have the same face and only slightly different hair styles. Other than that, the book looks absolutely delightful, just like a good adventure comic should.

    Overall, I was really pleasantly surprised by the first volume of One Piece. I know it's impossible to judge such a massive series just by one volume out of 89 (!!), but I sure am willing to read more. And while I can't say if I'm ever going to read all 89 (!!!) volumes, I get the feeling that this is the kind of series that is about the journey, not the destination.
