One Piece

One piece is a comic book which gives so many good examples on competition, friendship and perseverance.

“It is the golden age of pirates. Countless pirates sail the seas, searching for the legendary pirate Gold Roger’s greatest treasure, ONE PIECE.”

Most pirates in the era are determined to find the greatest treasure named ONE PIECE, which lies in an extraordinary and dangerous part of the world named Grand Line. Finding ONE PIECE will make the founder become the Pirate King, whose titled will be recognized as the conqueror of the sea.

Among those pirates is Monkey D Luffy. Little Luffy learned that being a pirate will lead him to many great adventures and to be recognized by the world. At the age of 17, Luffy began his quest to become the Pirate King.

The sea is a dangerous place, you can’t survive alone. As a matter of fact, being a pirate, Luffy didn’t have any friends/comrades to begin with, and he had no navigation skills, which is an important skill for sailing. So he started to find some reliable comrades to support his journey.

Along the way, he got new comrades one by one; Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, Franky, and Brook. Each of them had different backgrounds, different –dark- pasts, and even different dreams.. but they can all be united as one, as friends who truly believe in and protect each other. Their bond is even stronger than a family.

Luffy was always told that a boy like him will never find One Piece; since all pirates in the world were after that treasure, from small pirates like Buggy the Clown to famous, great pirates like Shirohige. But Luffy holds on to his dream and keeps on believing he’ll achieve that. No matter what people say, he will determine his own life and he will be the one who find One Piece.


“I can’t use swords, I can’t cook, I can’t navigate, and I can’t even lie.. That’s why I need a friend to help me.”

“I have friends who aren’t strong..but I will do anything to keep them all together with me. I’m glad that I meet you here because I can be stronger so I can protect my friends longer.”

“It’s impossible to be born in the world full of loneliness. You’ll surely find friends who will protect you.”

~One Piece is by far the best manga about friendship, perseverance and fair competition.. It’s greatly packed in joy, laughter, and even tears. Even though it seems like it’s filled with nothing good aside of fighting scenes, but when you look, think, and feel deeper, you’ll find the beauty of friendship, the strength of loyalty, the price of perseverance, and the undefeatable will to win the challenge of becoming what they want to be.~



One thought on “One Piece

  1. […] Okeii..let’s start with the best manga ever made in the world (in my opinion), ONE PIECE. Manga ini keren banget-bangetan. Mangaka-nya Eiichiro Oda. Manga ini genre-nya adventure, comedy.. apalagi ya? Ga gitu ngerti gw genre2an. Tapi apapun seleranya, gw rasa cocok2 aja deh sama manga ini. Wanpis ini manga ketiga terlaris di Shonen Jump loh! (yang pertama Dragon Ball, dan yang kedua Kochikame ) Btw Shonen Jump ini kyknya emang majalah manga terlaris di Jepang ya? Soalnya klo gw liat sih manga2 dr Shonen Jump di internet (di Indonesia jg) jg kebanyakan termasuk manga2 yg populer (One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Death Note). Dan entah kebetulan jg apa ngga, manga2 fav gw jg mayoritas dr situ. Lagipula, manga ini emang serba ada. Adegan2 kocak ada, seru ada, adegan sedih dan mengharukan juga ada. Porsinya juga berimbang, jadi jalan ceritanya tetep asik. Ga berlebihan deh pokoknya. Ceritanya juga ga ngebosenin, karena selalu ada petualangan yang berbeda dan kejutan baru di tiap ceritanya. Trus di dalem ceritanya juga suka diselipin2 pengetahuan2 umum, mulai dari bahasa (ada nama2 tokoh/tempat yang diambil dr berbagai bahasa dunia), setting tempat/tokoh, sejarah musik, film..dll. Pokoknya penuh pengetahuan, deh! Ada forum tanya jawabnya juga (itu lho, kolom SBS), biasanya dari SBS itu juga pembaca nyadar (ato nanya) klo nama tokoh/lainnya diambil dari pengetahuan umum. Singkatnya, Odacchi itu berwawasan luas deh! Kagum banget gw. Selain itu, ada Gallery (Usopp Gallery Pirates), Games (suka ada yg ngirim TTS/puzzle dll), sama kadang ada bonus juga. Dan yang paling gw suka adalah..nilai persahabatan dan kegigihan yang ada di dalam ceritanya. Kesetiakawanan yang luar biasa..keyakinan yang luar biasa.. ahh, susah dideskripsiin deh! Ga bakal ngerti kalo ga baca sendiri. Orang2 mungkin mikirnya, “Ah komik apaan sih ni, gambarnya jelek, orang melar2 ga jelas.” Seriously, DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER. Percaya deh, baca aja dulu. You’ll LOVE it. Ceritanya tentang apa? AHH UDAH BACA AJA GIHH!! ato boleh juga baca reviewnya Miss Novi di sini. Ada juga review yang kita kirim buat premiere rubrik English corner majalah SMAN 28 di sini. […]
