One Piece: East Blue 1-2-3


$20.00 Released December, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Great value. Well bound and easy to read and hold for a big book. More convenient than separate volumes.

The Cons:Viz's translations and edits are sometimes annoying. Loses some of the appeals of separate volumes i.e. color covers. The first volumes pale in many ways to the developed story seen in later ones.

Collecting the first three volumes of the hugely popular shonen (youth-oriented) manga into one 600-page volume, Viz Media hopes to catch people who were interested in reading the series but intimidated by the large number of books.

In the true shonen form of mixing high-action fights with fantastical exploration, One Piece has joined the ranks of Dragon Ball and Astro Boy in success in Japan. The manga tells the story of Luffy, a young boy with the ability to stretch his body and dreams of becoming the king of pirates. He gathers a crew and sails into the Grand Line, a notorious ocean where the legendary treasure of One Piece is said to exist. In these first volumes, readers see the origin of Luffy's power and dreams, his encounters with three of his future crew members, and his battles against the crews of Buggy the Clown, Aldiva and the marine unit of Captain Morgan. This release features all the bonus content, such as preliminary sketches and interviews with the author, found in the individual volumes. It has an MSRP equivalent to just two separate volumes, however.
