    The latest chapter is indeed a perfect example of one of the reaons why One Piece is so amazing!

    The manga requires patience, but for those who can wait, typically what adults are cable of, are so rewarded!

    Awesome chapter, freaking loved it

    Personally, I don't care if she reads it or not. Her loss, if she won't.

    Also, why would it be too late to start reading it?

    Heh

    First off, I've watched it a long time ago. Wasn't crazy about the art, storyline seems sensible and great, but it's SO popular? I might start watching it again. I have a feeling I'm missing out, honestly. I want to get into it again. Tell me what's so unique about it? Somebody fill me in a bit.
    Aside from what the others said (and I totally agree with them), I read ONE PIECE (the manga, since the anime is inconsistent and aside from that i could never really hold a candle to the manga) for maaaaany reasons. I LOVE IT!!! It's by far my favourite manga, and I've read over a hundred of them! What truly made me fall in love with it is that every character IS a character and not just a bunch of lines put together with the shape of a human being: every single character has a backstory, a motivation, has something that drives him, has thoughts and ideals and interacts with the world in a consitent and believable way... every single character is great, and them some are especially AWESOME! There are so many moving stories in their backgrounds... I can't remember how many times I cried reading this manga, sometimes for the sadness, sometimes for the pure joy, sometimes for the excitement, sometimes for the laughs. ONE PIECE has some of the most touching moments in all manga history, and I'm not exaggerating! You MUST read this! Scew the anime! READ IT!!! I promise you you WILL fall in love with it! Personally, I've read and re-read the whole manga more than 6-7 times and I always enjoyed the re-readings like they were my first. I think that's amazing for any story and it just shows how great a storyteller Oda-sensei is!

    Please enjoy you reading!

    This is not a reason... it's only for listen and watch: http://kirk-op.jalbum.net/One_Piece/default.html

    I agree with what others have said. It's not the best selling and most widely read manga in Japan for nothing. There's something about ONE PIECE that resonates with as lot of people whether you're a fifty year old businessman or a ten year old schoolgirl.

    However as hoeru has said earlier, if you start reading the manga not understanding what all the hype is about, you won't enjoy it fully. Read the manga with a fresh mind and take your time. There might be an impulse to catch up as fast as possible, but you'll end up missing out on a lot of things. Oda has been taking breaks here and there so there will be periods where you'll be closer to being up to date.

    Quite agreed with you here.
    One cannot enjoy something to even near its full potential when its being rushed, so definitely take it easy and just read when time is there for it, taking ones time to fall in love with the story.
    It needs time to sink in, so don't rush it

    Few members here, like kindredxiuxiu, are put off the manga due to the amount of chapters they have to go through to catch up. There's over 600 chapters, and many are too busy not being neets to be able to get through that many, especially when some watch yucky anime. I can't even blame them, because it took quite a while to get caught up... with bad quality of scanlations.

    Well, with moderate reading it would take like a month, maybe more, depending on free time.

    I know when I start reading a new manga, I discard movies, tv, games, girlfriend or anything else I would normally do in free time. It took me like a week or two to read Hunter x Hunter. Gave it as an example because it was the last manga I read completely. I'm saying completely because I doubt it'll ever get finished.

    Heh
