I would like to say I've been an avid LURKER for some time, But.. I'm not. I always come across AP and I finally decided to use my initiative to enter the community and discuss One Piece in all its glory.
I can't say I'm going to be around for a long periods of time, Or be a regular member yet, Since I'm with a considerable amount of other forums anyway (With Anime UK News being my "main" one). I also have a My Anime List account and I go their daily. I know a lot of people, come and go on a forum. I'll try and stick around - It being a One Piece one should make that easier for me.
By the by, I haven't got a long-term avatar yet because I haven't got the program thing I use to stick a "J" onto a picture as of now - I may choose to find and use a old one or a random image. [EDIT: I used a YGO Luffy one. ;p)
I've just started to read the manga recently after following the anime for a number of months, The trigger for starting to read it is the new arc that is about to start in it and I'm eager to get into it and discuss it with some others.
So.. Then.. That's about that.
