"A story about a boy trying to be the very best, like no one ever was? Yeah no thanks, I'll leave this one for my 10-year-old cousins." That's what I first thought when I looked at the first volume of One Piece. But mt opinion has drastically changed as this series has matured over the years. You know how the first book of Harry Potter is light and dreamy and wonderful, and by the last book it's bloody and real? That's sort of how One Piece is to me. It started as a pretty funny manga with mediocre drawing and a horrible stale story (the done-and-done-again battles that match up perfectly to each crewmates' powers, ugh!) that has turned into a pretty funny manga with a serious take on topics like war, slavery, racism, right and wrong. It's a huge achievement to have this whole lovable crew tackle insanely strong enemies, have them win AND sometimes lose, and still forge on and somehow keep up the silliness that is One Piece.

I generally prefer more "adult" manga like Berserk or Death Note, but if you haven't read OP because you're tired of the leveling-up, boring kind of mainstream manga, then give it a try. You'll definitely be rewarded! -W
