One piece worth reading?
Im a big fan of manga and i started reading alot a year ago, and i came across one peice many times but it just seemed soooo long. now that ive caught up with naruto bleach (and the popular manga these days) is it worth reading this super long series?
I just the best shonen at the moment, better than Naruto and Bleach. It has more adventures and journeys, A LOT of more fights, an incredible number of characters and villains still sailing around and a good main story along the main characters' dreams.
These words are coming from a one piece tard who believes One piece is the best manga ever:
Go read the manga. Now. If your a fan of manga, you cannot let this one by. Everything about this manga is a-plus material, and is definitely much better then both Naruto and Bleach.
Artwork: Beautiful, just sheer beauty
Storyline: Original and captivating, always leaving you wanting more
Characters: Funny, unique, they're the ones that make this manga so damn great
Powers: The Devil Fruit give many possibilities to the story, make battles very interesting
As a little forewarning. The first few volumes are a bit stale. The action really starts getting good during the Arlong Park arc(starts at chapter 69). Though I still wouldn't recommend skipping chapters 1-68. Just give this manga a try. I've been into it since I was 13(18 years old now) and it has always been my most cherished manga work. Just give it a try. You won't be disappointed. If you want to download some chapters check this thread out.
wow thanks guys ^^ haha
this forums got alotta friendly ppl =P
Why do you think One Piece is so long? Because there are people out there who desire it to continue forever. The series has ran for 10 years due to its popularity in Japan and elsewhere in the world. I have finished all 465 chapters and I still want 465 more. If One Piece isn't a good series, we wouldn't be here right now. Currently One Piece is Japan's most popular manga series, for some years now. I promise that One Piece will leave a completely different impression on you than the likes of Naruto and Bleach. I have read all three (plus some others), One Piece is doubtlessly one level above them. The start of the series is a bit slow, but you will like it, especially the later parts. One Piece has the unusual trend of improving as the story goes on. Perhaps that's true adventure for you.
Go GO GO.. Start reading and have fun. Don't miss this one my friend, coz everything is worthy to read.
It also gets stale around the Drum Empire (snowy island) arc. That was the worst shit ever *shoots Waporu repeatedly until he stops moving* "die die die die!!"

One Piece is an excellent series and as long as you like manga series like Dragon Ball, or shonen in general, you will like the series. Since One Piece is shonen, fighting for teenage entertainment is the main point of the manga but name a shonen series that doesn't fall into the category. Since shonen just means male fighting series, no offense ladies but it's the truth because of marketing.
I've read every chapter of the Big Three.
And while Bleach often leaves you thinking you've totally wasted your time, and Naruto just not being very good half the time.
One Piece NEVER fails to disdapoint.
Purely amazing manga - On a totally different class to the others.
I posted this in the anime section of OP but I guess I can post it here aswell.
One Piece, what can be said about it that hasn't already been said?
I could start with the connection that you undoubtly will get with the characters, or I could bring up the constant surprises or the humor thats neverending and never dull, alas I could bring up the tearful moments that will, if not make you cry, crasp your heart with gentle hands and make your eyes blurry. I could go about the action, on how it always feels cool and innovating, full of imagnitive ways of using ones capacities in different ways. But I won't....
... instead I will bring up the most important part of one piece, and that is nakama, or companion as it means in english, although that word is not strong enough to describe its real meaning, its the closest one can get. Its a word wich meaning can make a man climb a mountain with his bare hands in the middle of a blizzard, its a word that can make a man go on even though his body can bear it no longer, its a word wich can make you confront your fears and stand up against a foe you know you have absolutely no chans of winning against... it means all that and more.
