OK, I'm a bit nervous doing this, but here's what I got.
The name (at least on here) is Tokoro Ataru. While I'm currently a newbie, I'm not a johnny-come-lately One Piece fan. I've actually known of the series since about 1999/2000, back when I discovered the Oda anime style on an "anime opening" page I downloaded Digimon clips from. I started slowly with collecting the manga (mostly for sampling purposes while I more actively collected stuff like "Hell Teacher Nube"), but picked up speed to the point where I now own 35 of the Japanese volumes. (though the last I've read is the beginning of Vol. 22, just before Luffy fights Croc the second time…but I've been keeping up to the latest spoilers on stuff) Animewise...well OK, I really would love to watch the Kaizoku-Fansubs, but never find the time or the inspiration to do so due to my busy life. I once did give the 4Kids dub a chance, but couldn't stand some of the stupid stuff (Sanji sounds like he has throat cancer yet he licks lollipops!?) and lost track before they got to the "Arlong Park massacre". (though I did torture myself to watch the "rubber knife" incident after reading about it here and have watched a couple of the new Alabasta episodes on CN to fill the space in my life between Naruto [fun but a tad overrated] and Bo-bobo [crazy brilliance])
If anyone has any questions or comments, don't be afraid to ask me. While I'm probably not the greatest otaku or poster, I probably can make a few comments here or there.
