Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a brand new blog. New year nearing in. Hopefully going to be a great year! Comment what your new year resolutions are. So, let’s begin!
This adventure, action, fantasy was written by Eiichiro Oda and was first aired in July, 1998.
No. of episodes: 47 (per review)
Characters: (mainly now):
- Monkey D. Luffy
- Roronoa Zoro
- Don Krieg
A treasure left behind by a rich king after his death called ‘one piece’ is being sought after by all pirates around the world.
Luffy is one of those newly formed pirates in search of a crew to help him find the treasure and be crowned “Pirate King”. On the way to find new crew mates he encounters various other pirates and battles them.
Luffy has now found Sanji and battles it out against Don Krieg. He is also taken to Nami’s home village ruled by the Mermen from the grand line we learn about Nami’s past and see a battle between Luffy and Arlong.
Compared to the first review a lot of things have changed my opinion on this. These episodes provided some awesome back stories, insane action, awesome character development and a lot more. After finding his cook, Luffy battles it out against Don Krieg and provides us with a really cool fight. We are also given some information on how powerful some of the people from the grand line actually are and it’s actually really cool. Moving on, the anime completely changes my opinion on Nami and gives her a super sad back story. This Arlong arc was quite long but was really good in my opinion. I am not in the position to compare it with episodes ahead so these are my opinions so far. We are given the best fight in the anime so far with Luffy’s crew battling it out with Arlong’s crew. I guess the only annoying part would be how Luffy was knocked out for SO LONG. But the fight between Luffy and Arlong was awesome although quite repetitive in a lot of moves. The whole arc in itself was very interesting in terms of story as well. Our characters are supposedly on their way to the Grand Line now and we finally get wanted signs for Luffy put up. And the prices for his head are a TON! It’s so cool. Honestly, this anime has already exceeding my expectations in all aspects and I honestly can’t wait to go on with the anime. So much fun. Highly recommended. Overall awesome.
I would give these episodes of the anime 4/5 stars.
