One Piece: How a Manga Ignited my Worldwide Adventure

Describe one simple thing you do that brings joy to your life.

Ever since I was a child, I’ve had a fondness for manga, with one particular pirate-themed series, “ONE PIECE ,” providing me immense joy. Of course, I have a broad range of favorites, but the initial impact “One Piece” had on my younger self was profound. The moment I began reading it, I knew it was destined to become a huge success. I used to meticulously cut out the weekly editions and compile them into makeshift manga books, that is, until the actual volumes became available. This renowned series has been ongoing for a staggering 24 years.

As I delved deeper into the series, I found myself developing a fascination with travel. The idea of journeying to unknown lands and encountering diverse cultures sparked a desire in me, and consequently, a decade after I picked up the first volume of the series, I embarked on a trip around the world.

With over 1000 chapters to its name, “One Piece” is no casual read; it requires a certain level of commitment from first-time readers. Nonetheless, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Thank you for reading this article.

    I never got into One Piece. But I did read manga for a while. I liked Fruits Basket and a few others. It’s been a while since I’ve read any though.

      Thank you for your comment. I also read Fruits Basket when I was in high school. If I remember correctly, it was a high school romance manga. I’m happy to know that we read the same manga.

        I’m a bit older than you are. 🙂 I still have Fruits Basket and a couple of other series on my bookshelf, and read them every once in awhile when I’m feeling nostalgic. Take care!

        Hahaha 😂 You can tell someone’s age by the period when they were reading manga, can’t you? Fruits Basket has something addictive about it. It’s a famous manga in Japan too. I’m curious about the other series on your bookshelf. In Japan, we have something called “manga cafes”, which are like libraries for manga with a time-based charge, and I used to hang out there a lot when I was in high school.

        I don’t have many more manga on my shelf because I move a lot but off the top of my head I From Far Away, Red River? I think? and an American manga that I can’t recall the name of at the moment. I had to donate the rest of them because they’re way too heavy to move.

        Thank you for letting me know. I’ll look for them.
        I’ve also stopped buying manga books because I can now read them online.”

    I’ve always wanted to start one piece but how long it is, scares me a bit!

      You can also watch on Netflix, so I believe you can watch little by little.

    One Piece made me love anime and manga 😍😍. Though I have read many mangas, still, One Piece is the best and will have a special place in my heart.

      I feel the same way♪ I’m very happy about it. One Piece is truly romantic. It seems like it will end in a few years, but let’s see it through to the end☺️
