High jinx on the high seas!
Please note: book reads right to left (Japanese style)
As a child, Monkey D. Luffy dreamed of becoming the 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! Now Luffy, with the help of a motley collection of pirate wannabes, is setting off in search of the "One Piece," said to be the greatest treasure in the world!
Eiichiro Oda debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997 as a comic creator and artist with ONE PIECE. One of the most popular comic artists in Japan today, Oda started out by winning the Hop Step Award (a monthly award given by Jump for amateur artists) as well as the esteemed Tezuka Award. His art style is reminiscent of Akira Toriyama, Sergio Aragones, and the movie Yellow Submarine.

Would most certainly reccomend this series!
Hope you enjoy the series as much as I did!
This is an absolutely important volume in the One Piece saga - it's the first time readers are exposed to Oda's grander designs for his opus. The important leaders of the World Government are given names and faces, more of the Seven Warlords are introduced, and Shanks is on the move to meet up with the current greatest pirate in the world. Say what you will about One Piece and the conventions of the "Shonen Manga" genre, but Eiichiro Oda is fantastic for setting up events that won't pay off for another twenty volumes down the line and beyond. And that may not seem like a lot to American readers since we'll be getting all this in a matter of months thanks to the new accelerated publishing program - but anyone who followed the original Japanese release will know this took *years* to play out and was a true exercise in patience.
But all of that only accounts for two chapters of this book, with the rest delivering more comedy, action, and adventure as the Straw Hat crew chase after giant birds, settle an old score with Bellamy the Hyena, and ride the ever-so-unfortunately-named "Knock Up Stream" to Skypiea. There really is no "fat" here to speak of, as the story moves along pretty quickly and efficiently. And just in case you think everything is moving along too conveniently, Usopp even hangs a lampshade on the subject at one point. Don't worry, it's all pretty sound logic for the One Piece world.
The last thing I'd like to point out is that a major, long-term villain is revealed here, and one of his henchmen whom I thought would have his name changed for "correctness" actually gets away unscathed. You'll know it when you see it, and it's great Viz didn't take the "self-censoring" route here. Grab this volume and get ready for the next epic One Piece saga.
