Give me that!
Hello Candyboys! It's me Queen Ivankov the miracle worker! I'm here to work my miracles on all of you and make this thread the New-newkamaland! .

Chorus: You got us again!
Now sit tight my forumer boys ( if you're not a boy I can fix that !) so I cannot tell you of one little Rubber boy and his quest for ADVENTURE!
I'VA CHANGED MY MIND
Chorus: You worked in a pun too!

What is One Piece?
One Piece is a manga written by a lunatic named Oda boy. He ate the Oda-Oda fruit and can write to a distance of no more than 250 Odaodas, which is still pretty impressive considering your average write can't handle more than 5 or 6. It's about:
Inspired by the death of Gold Roger piurates have taken to the sea in search of their dreams .
One Piece follows the Straw hat Pirates . A group of men and women intent on their dreams and adventure.
Monkey D. Luffy- Captian , Idiot, Rubberman. When the tough gets going he punches them. He's going to be the king of the Pirates
Rorona Zoro- A man who uses three swords. One goes in his mouth. He is destined to get lost where ever he goes. Second Mate and on track to be the greatest Swordsman in the world which is coincidentally his dream
Nami- Master theif,Scrooge Mcduck, and Navigator of awesomeness. Her Dream is to map the world.
Events in her past make her stingy with money. This is all for the best since the Strawhats would be destitute without her.
Usopp- King of lies and commander of 1 billion men. Crack Sniper. His dream is to be a pirate and meet his father one the sea
Sanji- Lover of food. Wants to be lover of women. Any woman. Under 40 of course.
Master chef with the black leg of death. He wishes to see the All blue a sea containing every fish in the world.
Tony-Tony Chopper - A man-reindeer. He's a doctor and mascot of the crew. Also their emergency rations. His dream is to cure any illness. Chopper has the coolest Dad ever.
Nico Robin - She can sprout her body parts anywhere ( we don't know the exact limits but odds are she could make a double of herself if she wanted) and she's an archaeologist. She hates giant robots of coolness. Her dream is kind of spoileriffc. Rest assured it is a tear jerker.
Franky - SUPER ! Cola Powered Cyborg. Shipwright. Man we all aspire to be. His dream also ruins a cool moment so it won't be here.
Brook - Musician, Gentleman, Slash from U2. Brook is all of these things. He can hardly keep his talents straight in his brain. Oh he doesn't have a brain because he's a skeleton Yohoho!
Brooks Dream is to return to a special friend.
Marines - They uphold "Justice" because it's written on the back of their jackets. The cops to the pirates robbers. At least they look good doing it. Pretty even split between people just trying to uphold the peace (and get their ass kicked by pirates) and giant douche bags working for the giant assholes who run the World Government (and usually kick the pirates' ass)
Dreams - People have them. If you're a bad guy, Luffy crushes your dream. It's a fate worse than death.
Adventure - Pirates and adventure is like peanut butter and jelly.
The manga is released in the US by Viz. They do an okay job. Before this year started they were at the end of Alabasta, but now they are releasing six or seven volumes a month every month for the entire year. This should put them only about a year behind when 2011 comes around, not bad considering right now they are close to seven or eight years behind! Translation is inconsistent between volumes though. Primarily because they had multiple teams of translators working on each story arc. It's little things but it can be annoying . Also if you like the song Bink's Sake be aware of oncoming rage.
I Hear There is an Anime.
Sure is. A darn good one too. Without it you couldn't get [strike]horrible[/strike] awesome AMVs like this one:
Anyways, the anime is really good. Watch the new subtitled episode for free each week on Saturday at Nine PM Eastern at www.onepieceofficial.com
They also have the first 100+ episodes up either subtitled or dubbed. The dub is really good if you're into that sort of thing.
