At first, I was impressed that the authors decided to use the true names of the characters (Zoro not Zolo, Ace not Trace, etc) and the Japanese names of the Devil Fruits. But as I looked deeper it was obvious that they couldn't seem to agree on what name to use for many of the characters/items, which makes things extremely confusing. For example Jaguar D. Saul is often referred to as Hagwor D. Sawaro, Porche as Borchie, and Yubashiri as Yukibashi. Luffy's Devil Fruit is referred to as Gomu Gomu no Mi, Gum Gum Fruit, and Gom Gom Fruit. There is no consistency at all throughout the book.
The authors also seem to have an odd view in regards to what information should be included and what should not. They list incredibly obscure locations, like the name of a storefront, but many pivotal characters are either not mentioned at all or are only vaguely referenced.
If you are a fan of One Piece look elsewhere for your information. There are a number of very comprehensive and accurate websites developed by fans that will contain all the information in this book plus so much more. Save your money for upcoming One Piece manga and anime DVD's and pass this book by.
Here are a few direct quotes to give readers an idea of the errors contained in the book:
"Luffy is one of the first to set out on the open seas in search of One Piece." (In actuality pirates had been searching for One Piece for over 20 years before Luffy had even become a pirate.) (pg 14)
"Although Luffy was rescued without harm, at that very moment, Shanks himself was attacked by another pirate and lost his right arm." (Shanks lost his left arm, not to another pirate, but to a Sea King) (pg 44)
States Luffy's bounty is 30 million since "the beginning". (Luffy does not have a bounty until he defeats Arlong) (pg 54)
"When Bellamy meets Luffy for the first time, he knows that Luffy's bounty is 300 million Berri." (Luffy does not have a 300 million bounty until much later in the series.) (pg 109)
(In regards to Skypiea) "...there also is another species of people, like the Konis, who have wings on their backs, like angels." (Conis/Konis is the name of one person of this race, not the name of the entire race) (pg 34)
"Marshall Teach, the man who formed the Whitebeard Pirates." (Marshall D. Teach, aka Blackbeard, was a member of the Whitebeard Pirates, not the founder.) (pg 46)
In regards to the "shootout" between Luffy and Usopp - "Usopp was defeated and consequently chased away by his comrades." (Usopp challenged Luffy to a fight, not a shootout. Usopp was defeated, but the Strawhats never chased him away. In fact they left the Going Merry in his possession.) (pg 78)
cleated up so much.It helped me better understand the crews pasts.I will definatly be getting more books in the series.
