The Japan Anniversary Association has declared that the 22nd of July is recognised as “One Piece Day” since 2017. As such, here is the start of a 30 day journey answering 30 One Piece Questions, as I am a fan of the franchise.
While the original questions are asked with the anime in mind, they can easily be adapted for the manga as well. I shall personally be answering for both the anime and manga where I can. I hope you will find this fun and join me on this little adventure.
Why did I start watching the One Piece anime?
I resisted starting on the One Piece journey for so long. However, my brother pestered me trying to get me to watch the anime. I eventually caved in to his persistence and watched maybe 50 episodes before calling it quits. After a while, I got involved with the people over at SleepingGeeks and, after reading the One Piece focused posts, my curiosity was piqued once again. However, like my first attempt, I did not get too far into the anime before I lost interest once again.
It was on my third attempt at the anime that I decided to actually put in the effort and invest my time. I took it on with my 5-a-day policy for long-running anime. It took a few months, but I had done it. I had caught up. Now I watch, wait, let two or three months go by, and then catch up in a binge-watch session.
One Piece is available on Crunchroll and is up to date.
Why did I start reading the One Piece manga?
II caught up on the anime, mid-arc. After investing my time in over 800 episodes, I figured I may as well dive into the manga. I did this in two ways. I found what chapter the manga had left off at and started there. I wanted to know what happened next. I am not the most patient of people.
Once I decided to let the anime get ahead, I started the manga from chapter one and worked my way through in a massive binge reading. I am a really fast reader and daily start and catch up on many manga titles.
Now I am curious, why did you start watching and/or reading One Piece? I look forward to your answer (^w^)
