I lurked here for a while but just recently decided to take the plunge and sign up. I heard about one piece for a while, but I didn't really get into it until I started reading the english shonen jump. After that I liked the series, but I wasn't overly crazy about it. I saw the 4kids version first so that didn't help much..I still can't get over that horrible rap they used for the intro :ohmy: . So on a whim I decided to download the subbed episodes about a month ago, and that changed everything….now I'm basically obsessed . The anime just seemed to convey the message better, I guess I normally prefer anime to manga anyway.
Anyways, I'll be seeing you guys around. It's nice to meet everyone .
