One Piece Volume 46 has to be one of my favorite volumes of the series so far. At the start of the volume, Ace and Blackbeard's fight continues, and the powers of a deadly devil fruit are revealed. Brilliant moves are shown, by both Firefist Ace and the infamous Blackebeard, and this, in my opinion is one of the best fights so far! So, a perfect opening to a perfect volume? Yes.
The next arc begins, as the Straw Hats enter the foggy waters on their new ship. There, they are introduced to a strange looking fellow. Brook, the gentleman skeleton is introduced here, and keep in mind the saying - "don't judge a book by its cover". The first introduction between Luffy and Brook had me roaring in laughter. I wont spoil it for you, but, you definitely have to read it to find out.
The rest of the book introduces more interesting ideas and they are certainly odd, but brilliant nevertheless. Thriller Bark is my favorite arc in the series so far. Im not sure how long this will last, as volumes 47 and on sit quietly my shelf, but I think it beets East Blue, Borouque Works, Skypeia and Water Seven easily. The entire arc lasts 4-5 volumes, so is an easy thing to complete and gives you a sense of accomplishment.
I hope this review has helped you decide to get this brilliant volume by Oda Sensei.
Thanks for reading until now.
