The animation is pretty basic (but understandable - it is old!) and the main character is more annoying than I thought he would be (but It's the stereo typical hero who is super positive and will be the best of the best etc etc - but that's fine too as he's also very funny).
My main problem is that this is box set 1 and there are (at least) 12 more ! So it's going to cost me £350 + to catch up to the last box set. Hmmmmmm
I wonder if the animation gets any better? And is it worth collecting the rest?
Not a bad box set and pretty funny - but not sure if I will collect the rest.
Along with 'Naruto' and 'Bleach', 'One Piece' is one of the 'Big Three' Shonen series and has been going strong for more than fifteen years. In Japan, 'One Piece' is an incredibly popular with both the anime and manga versions regally topping the sales charts. Despite this, the series wasn't very well liked for a long time in the West, mostly due to the infamously terrible version put together by the original licence holders 4Kids Entertainment. Now FUNimation has the licence they are redoing the series far more faithfully to the original Japanese version without the edits to remove violence and other things 4Kids thought inappropriate for children.
This first four disc collection of the series includes the first twenty-six episodes of the series that takes the show from the beginning to around half way through the Baratie arc. Despite these episodes being roughly fifteen years old now the animation is still reasonably good. One of the things I have always thought about 'One Piece' is that the beginning of the series is probably weakest part of the series and it isn't until the Baratie and Arlong Park arcs that the show begins to get good but even with this, these episodes are still entertaining enough for most anime fans to enjoy.Read more ›
Firstly it's important to note that this UK Release is Region 2 and will definitely work on any UK player. Amazon seem to have mixed the reviews with the US Release so don't let any reviews that say it won't work confuse you because this is the new UK Release and it will work.
I first got into One Piece when it aired on Toonami several years ago. That was the 4kids dub which was heavily censored and as a result wasn't as successful as it could have been. Many fans of the original hated the changes made to it. Because I'd never seen the original version at the time I didn't really have any problem with it.
So now the show has been re-dubbed by Funimation who have done a much better job at it. This is the same voice cast who dubbed Dragonball Z So if you're familiar with that then you'll probably enjoy listening to this cast. Of course their dub of One Piece is much more recent so their acting talent has gotten a lot better since DBZ. Also all of the episodes are COMPLETELY UNCUT and have the Japanese music kept intact. Funimation have also done a great job of the opening and ending songs. And the Japanese audio version is also included.
For anyone who has never seen One Piece I highly recommend you give it a chance. It's a great series with lots of action, lots of laughs and strong storylines. Or if you saw the 4kids version on Toonami and are holding out because of that then I'd recommend you give it another chance. This is the true One Piece and is much better than the 4kids version in every way. I'd even say it rivals Dragonball.Read more ›
