In this summer vacation, I found "ONE PIECE"written in English at the local store. I decided to choose this because I was impressed by reading when I was a child.This story set in the age of discovery. As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer whom he respected. However his life changed when Luffy accidentally ate the "GUM-GUM DEVIL FRUIT" and gained the power to stretch like rubber at the cost of never being able to swim in the sea again. Years later, making his dreams come true, Luffy sets out on his adventure, hoping to find the legendary "ONE PIECE," said to be the greatest treasure in the world.The main character of this story is not perfect. Therefore, there are times when he meets dangerous situations and takes actions that you do not understand as a hero. However, he always cherishes his friendship and keeps on traveling without forsaking anyone, and sometimes such friendship helps him. This attitude taught me the wonderfulness of friendship. Also, he will not give up at any time. No matter what mighty difficulties stand, he will desperately strive to exeed that difficulty. From this lesson, I learned theimportance of making efforts. Even if he realizes his limits, he will always exceed that limit by continuing to challenge something new. I think this means that I should always look forward in my life. So, I would like everyone seeking hints on how to live in their life regardless of age and sex to read. Through this book, I learn many lessons on living my life and I can keep a strong core in my mind at any time. Even if one day I face a major setback that I have never experienced before, I think that I can definitely overcome it using what I have learned from the book. These things can be said to not only me, but of course those who read it. Moreover this book is also interesting as a comic. In the vast world that the author draws, traveling with the hero, traveling with joy, sometimes sadness can not be obtained elsewhere. As soon as you start to read this book, you will be taken to the romance dawn. The more pages you read, the more interested you can get. Next, I would like to read a new book that can give me other lessons in my life.
Ingenious plot created by the author with the adventurous sprit

The cover of the comic put me off from One Piece for some time, as I thought that One Piece must be a frivolous comedy. I was wrong.The author’s art of creativity beyond my wildest dreams pleasantly surprised me. It’s got good morals here and there.The short answer to the question of whether One Piece is worth taking the time to read is, "Absolutely yes for those who have read the Japanese version and who have not."
Really enjoyed reading the book with my eight year olds!

Something for everyone

I've got all of the books in Japanese and am currently collecting the English version.I truly believe that this series has something in it for every reader.The story revolves around a boy who wants to become the king of pirates and his band of merry pirates.But the great part is that it isn't all just fun and games.This epic tale takes on popular themes like friendship, adventure and hope but also doesn't forget that the world isn't perfect and brings in death, war and racism.I can see why it is the most popular comic series in history and has sold over 230million copies.I am using these books as a reading activity for my students (I'm a kids English teacher) who have medium to high reading abilities.It's far more enjoyable than reading regular books because the pictures make it faster and easier to understand.If you are studying English I recommend reading this or other comic books rather than trudging through a long novel with a dictionary in hand.
