Hey all, Omega here!
I love One Piece, and this site was the first to come up after typing "One Piece forum" in Google. I originally saw the dubbed version on Cartoon Network or somewhere and hated it, thought, "Who could actually watch something like that?" But after talking with an old friend over the internets I used to do computer graphics with, he highly recommended it to me since he was a part of the One Piece Scanlation group Chikusho.
I took a break for all of last year of watching One Piece, and got back into it about 3 days ago, leaving me about 50 or so episodes behind. I've avidly been watching around 15 episodes a day, and today thought "Oh man, that would suck if I had to wait for next week's episode, this is getting exciting! Good thing I have like 30 episodes left to watch!" Turns out, it was episode 423. :<
Anyways, after all, this is an introductory forum, and I would like to say hello to all of the members here on AP! I tend to be pretty active at times, so expect to see me around!
