When I started out reading OP, I was tied between it and Shaman King for favorite series. They both captured my love of goofy humor and unique characters very nicely, and were dead tied.
- At the chapter with ShuShu, OP crept ahead a tiny bit.
- At the chapter with Kuro's plan revealed, OP took a step ahead.
- At the chapters of Sanji's flashback, I was taken, hook, line, and sinker.
Before I was following Viz, and I must have reread the first 6 volumes 10 times when I finally got sick of waiting and googled One Piece Manga for the heckuvit. And, lo and behold, I found this place. Ever since my admiration has only grown and grown.
