Synopsis:

From Wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_One_Piece_chapters_(1_186)

Luffy begs Nami to become a pirate and his crew's navigator, but she refuses and uses him as bait to steal the treasure of pirate captain Buggy the Clown. As Luffy and Zoro fight the Buggy Pirates, Buggy is found to have the power of a devil fruit which allows him to separate his body parts at will. With Buggy's crewmen defeated, Luffy fights him one-on-one. The volume ends with Buggy revealing that he knew Red-haired Shanks, Luffy's old mentor.

My Thoughts:

For a volume over 200 pages, not much happens. Luffy and Zoro make it to an island that has been taken over by Buggy the Clown and they get captured and fight and that's about it. There's a schmaltzy little piece about a dog guarding the store that his master used to own and it made me roll my eyes which is why this volume only gets 4stars.

The character design in One Piece is as unique as that by CLAMP. Once you see it you'll recognize it as distinctly Oda's. I'll probably include some art in a later review. This early in the series just doesn't seem like it's quite time.

Loving the insanity of One-Piece and the continual build of the story. ( )

This second volume is as funny as the first but it is not as pleasing. Its central message that everyone has a personal treasure is overstated and this motif is becoming repetitive. Similarly, the invincibility of our heroes robs the plot of dramatic tension. These shortcomings are outweighed by the generosity of spirit that flavours every page. And in this volume the dog alone would make the book worthwhile. ( )

I was very moved to read ShouShou story. He waited for his master in front of his master's shop every day, BUt, one day Buggy The Clown came and tried destroying the shop. ShouShou resisted the terrible clown. I really love this episode, because it reminds me of bond between friends. ( )
