Manga Monday: One Piece by Eiichiro Oda

So for my first real post on this site I figured I’d talk about my all time favorite Manga/Anime Series ever, One Piece by Eiichiro Oda. One Piece is a Shounen series, meaning its aimed at for young male teens. However just because it’s a Shounen series don’t let that make you think its a typical kiddie series.

Summary: A story following a young man named Luffy and his crew on a journey to become King of the Pirates.

 

If you were like me and grew up in the age of after-school anime on Cartoon Network you might remember watching One Piece on TV and thinking it was stupid. You’d have been right, because it was being dubbed by 4Kids Entertainment, a company who I thoroughly hate for its rampant use of Censorship.

On the left is the 4Kids version of One Piece. On the right is the original uncensored version. I mean come on what the fuck is he using? A shower head to threaten someone?

 

Despite that when I went to college many years later and was dealing with a bout of Depression I went back and watched the first few episodes of One Piece in the original Japanese with Subs. Needless to say I was hooked, like I am for any story once I start it. 

The series starts off a little slow, something to be expected from a series that started over 17 years ago. However if you can get to the Arlong Arc, which is about 40 episodes into the series, you will get to the real meat of the series.  

For those who like: Shounen series, comedy, drama, epic battles, AMAZING Characters, an author who never forgets anything and uses Chekovs gun like a boss.

Not for those who don’t like: A slow starting series, comedy, stuff that isn’t in HD at the very beginning. 

Suggested Viewing Language: Japanese with English subtitles.
