    The official english translation. I say Ruffy sounds like pirate name. Luffy sounds engrish to me.

    Looking at the titles, I think the last one I read was actually volume 23.

    I agree, let's talk about a better area of discussion. For example... has anyone noticed how big Nami's rack gotten over time? I understand having good old fashion fanservice but she was much cuter and believable at the start of the series.

    Examples:

    First episode:
    nami2.png
    93rd:
    nami33q.png
    Current:
    nami55.png


    :)

    No, see, there's a logical explanation for this.

    Sanji is the one who's feeding her.

    He's that good.



    Also, Godfather, whenever you run out of characters, PM me stuff and I'll edit it into post 2.

    Only condition is that the Pirate Rap remains :P

    It's official for the Japanese translation too. Wanted posters and all that.

    I did actually not know that. I still prefer Ruffy and it's what I'm used to, though.

    It's pronounced that way in most versions anyway, so it's not that big a deal.

    Though I'm grateful it's said "Loo-fy" and not "Luff-y" because the second one just sounds off.

    You know, reading that summary I'm tempted to watch it but theres not a chance in hell of me watching a 200 or 400 or whatever it is episode series now. But yeah, sounds kinda neat if a little silly in places, the running gag v ideo was funny.

    That's fine. That's more of a cultural thing I guess. Can't fault you for that.

    If you can do 100 you'll do 400. Besides, what does it matter how many episodes there are? It's not like there's an end boss to win the series when you catch up.

    100 of what?

    If Id got in near the start like Naruto, I think I got in 16, a weekly digest is ok but watching 400 episodes, even if I did take it weekly, its just a lot to catch up on. Its why Ive moved onto, when I watch anime anymore, stuff thats finite.

    I hope you guys are grateful for this latest one, because I had to scout through a lot of porn to get some decent images, not to mention the standard skipping through episodes to find good screen caps game.

    I'll do my best to get Usopp going tonight.

    For what it's worth if you're a decent reader you'll get through the comic in a much speedier fashion.

    Conceptually it's different enough that even if it isn't the sort of series you'd watch/read chances are you'll like it.

    Jesus. I remember watching every piece of One piece that came up on Cartoon Network. At the time I thought, hey this is fun. Its another long-run like Naruto or Bleach, but its alright. I can take it or leave it.

    I was blaring that song all day during my trip to the Keman boardwalk for the 4th of July.

    Haki seems to be One Piece's version of chi/chakra/ki/reiatsu, though in this case the effect when it manifests varies from person to person and doesn't necessarily seem to be indicative of the person's power level.

    Man, with the recent announcement of Viz releasing a shitload of volumes next year, I may end up reading the manga first afterall.

    But man, watching the english dvds without any major knowledge has been so good so far...

    so I came in here and just saw the bounties.

    Chopper really gets a fifty bell bounty? That's hilarious.

    And one time the Marine's completely fail at properly gauging strength.

    So I figure since there's apparently no chapter this week let's discuss the status of the crew.
    Mainly what upgrades they'll have upon returning to Shabonday.

    Brook - Frankly I'm not sure. Ideally he'd get a super mode. Though given where he is maybe he'll learn some magic?

    Chopper will probably broker a deal between the Cavemen and the birds. Maybe learn how to control Monster point from one or both sides.

    Robin will learn to work better in a team AND DO THE DAMN TACTICS 16!

    Nami and Usopp seem pretty obvious. Weather powers for Nami. Confidence that he can survive the new world and not be a burden for Usopp

    Sanji- Okama Kenpo and a refusal to admit how he learned it.

    Zoro- Assuming Perona doesn't use a devil fruit( I forget) I think he'll learn how to control his spirit and develop a technique that cuts through anything.

    Franky- New cola recipe. Maybe he'll upgrade his body with the Pacifista metal.

    Godfather, you should add the pirate names of the characters.

    Strawhat Luffy
    Pirate Hunter Zoro
    Black Leg Sanji
    Cat Thief Nami
    Cotton Candy Lover Chopper
    King of Snipers Sogeking
    Etc.

    I might have gotten some of these wrong.

    Also, I like how Nami literally owns the ship. All those gold pillars and shit they took, it's all Nami's. And she used that money to buy the new ship. One of her conditions of joining the crew was that she got all the loot. Like, everything. 100%. None of the others care about money, each having their own individual dreams to pursue, so it all goes to her. The crew is very, very lucky she's got a kind heart.

    Just watched Movie 6.

    That was messed up, man. Seriously.

    Also, it would have been a nice twist if
    the little girl was undead like the other pirates. It would have been a better explanation than "she can hear really well."

    It's kind of funny how this fits context-wise to episode 405.

    Let's face it, the whole crew is very very lucky to have the rest of the crew. EVERY ONE OF THEM.

    hell, one of the overriding themes of the show is how fucked they'd all be individually, which I like.

    That's a good idea TeaSpoon. I'll do that tomorrow when I get back from work. If you could edit your post to have them all, it would really help me out.
    Also, wasn't it Franky who paid for and made the ship? He did steal it after all...

    Well, most of these can be found on this page. Keep in mind that the translation might not be perfect in this particular instance. In fact, I'm pretty sure whoever translated that got some of those wrong. Onemanga tends to take the first scanlation released and never looks back. Below are better translations.

    Monkey D. Luffy
    Japanese: 麦わらのルフィ(Mugiwara no Luffy)
    Translation: Strawhat Luffy. Note how his name is present in the title. That's not always the case.

    Roronoa Zoro
    Japanese: None found on the One Piece wiki
    Translation: Pirate Hunter Zoro

    Nami (Apparently, she hasn't got a full name. She's an orphan, I recall.)
    Japanese: 泥棒猫 (Dorobō Neko)
    Translation: Thief-Cat, I suppose, though Cat Burgler is better since it's an actual word. I've seen both used. The way it's phrased leads me to suspect that it's supposed to be "Nami, the Cat Burgler".

    Usopp, he without a last name.
    Japanese: 狙撃の王様 (Sogeki no Ou-sama)
    Translation: King of Snipers. Again, it makes more sense as "Sogeking, the King of Snipers" than "King of Snipers Sogeking".

    Sanji
    Japanese: 黒脚 (Kuro Ashi)
    Translation: Black Leg. I guess "Black Leg Sanji" works fine.

    Tony Tony Chopper
    Japanese: わたあめ大好き (Wataame Daisuki)
    Translation: Cotton Candy Lover. No suggestions with this one. It seems to work equally well either way.

    Franky
    Japanese: 鉄人"フランキー (Saibōgu Furankī)
    Translation: Cyborg Franky. Pretty straightforward.

    Nico Robin
    Japanese: (悪魔の子 (Akuma no Ko)
    Translation: Demon Child. So, "Robin, the Demon Child" might work.

    Brook: This is a doozy. He wasn't on the crew yet when the wanted posters were updated. That said, he still has a bunch of titles. More than most. Gentleman Skeleton, Dead Bones, Humming Swordsman, and Humming Brook.


    Also, note that these are the titles by which they are officially known to the One Piece world. Other people know them by other names. Robin calls everyone by their function, for example, and she herself was once known as Miss All Sunday. Sanji and Zoro call each other "moss head" and "eyebrow freak". Vivi called Zoro "Mr. Bushido."

    By the way, the One Piece wiki is fucking amazing.
