View Full Version : Side stories cover project!

January 06, 2008, 05:17 PM
We all know that there are (at the moment) 4 side stories in One Piece, that take place in the various chapters' covers. Thing is, that most of them are in a horrible condition (super LQ to LQ scanlations). So I thought of making a project, of collecting all of the side stories, bunching them into one (each side story as it's own "special chapter"), and maybe even coloring them little by little.
So, if any of you guys have some raws of those old covers, or happen to have a good scan of those, please share!
In addition, if you happen to have an original volume in your homes (Published by VIZ for example, or your local manga publishers), it will be greatly appreciated if you could scan the side stories covers and share with us.
I'll leave to Imitorar editing this post with each side story's chapter range (e.g: Buggy side story: chapter 30-55). He's good at this stuffs.
This could really be awesome if it works out! Good luck!

List of side stories in One Piece at wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_One_Piece_story_arcs#Chapter_Title_Page_.22Mini-Arcs.22).

Well, as asked, I will edit this post with the chapter ranges for the sidestories. I'd also like to comment that the scans for Wapol's sidestory and on are pretty good, as that's where Null picked up One Piece.

Buggy's Crew: After the Battle! (An Account of Buggy & Crew's Adventures: Chapters 35-75
Koby and Helmeppo's Chronicle of Toil (A Diary of Koby-Meppo's Struggles: Chapters 83-119
Django's Dance Paradise: Chapters 126-172
Hatchan's Sea-Floor Stroll: Chapters 182-228
Wapol's Omnivorous Hurrah: Chapters 236-262
Ace's Great Blackbeard Search: Chapters 272-305
Gedatsu's Accidental Blue-Sea Life: Chapters 314-348
Miss Goldenweek's "Operation: Meet Baroque Works: Chapters 359-413
Where They are Now: Chapters 424-427
Enel's Great Space Operations: Chapters 428-474Titles and numbering taken from Wikipedia.
All hail Luckas! His great find:
I'm going to start a project to color all of the side stories (well, that's the goal), after I finish my current coloring.
Anyone who wants to help is welcomed. If you don't know how to color, we'll guide you to a tutorial and you'll be able to join this. I really think it's a great opportunity for the OP community.
Note: Gonna post this thread also in the art section.
