About the Author
Eiichiro Oda debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997 as a comic creator and artist with ONE PIECE. Oda is one of the most popular comic artists in Japan today, started out by earning the Hop Step Award (a monthly award given by Jump for amateur artists) as well as the esteemed Tezuka Award. His art style is reminiscent of Akira Toriyama, Sergio Aragones, and the movie Yellow Submarine.

Viz is still doing a good job with these volumes. Aside from the annoyance of Sanji's "near-swearing," nothing seems edited or out of place. What helps Viz's case considerably is that they retained the french names of Sanji's attacks, rather than go with the cheesy 4Kids insertions.
10 volumes down, 30 more to go before we catch up with Japan. And the series is far from over. Shake a leg Viz!
Finally! From this point on the stakes are higher, and the characters become increasingly bizzare. This volume includes story elements that 4Kids cut with their botched edits, including a sympathetic whale named Laboon and some vital information concerning navigation through the Grand Line. Also in this volume is the introduction to Whisky Peak, a nice tease to what awaits in volume 13. Give it a read, and buckle up: this is indeed when the legend begins.
If you are a manga lover between the age of 7 and14 you will love this. It has humor in it, suspense, thrills, and its so fun to read. The characters are great to read about and the story line is cool, especially when Luffy gets thrown into water and his crew ang the vilage have to fight Arlongs pirates and save him at the same time.
I LOVED it... great read!
