There was a thread awhile ago but i can't find it so whatever
So my girlfriend is coming over to watch some movies this weekend and she said she was interested in the shows i watch. I told her about One Piece and she said thats cool. Anyway she has never watched anime before so I'm trying to fid the best way to show it to her.
Now the last couple times i tried to show my friends Funimation's One Piece it has failed to get them interested. One group I tried starting at episode 1 but they were too confused by the lack of explanation of what was going on and who Luffy was. Another group, who was more familiar with anime, i started with Movie 8, but they didn't get it either.
So now I am trying to decide between starting at three different places. One is obviously episode 1. The next is episode 4 which starts with Luffy's past, then going back to episode 1 and working from there. And finally, the second part of episode 48, which is the entire explanation of Gold Roger by Smoker and the Bartender with Luffy and his ambitions. I always thought it would be a good intro.
Anyway, any thoughts on the matter would be greatly appreciated. Oh also I'll just say don't suggest the Japanese version with subs because she nor any of my other friends want to see that. sorry
