As a child, Monkey D. Luffy dreamed of becoming the King of the Pirates. But his life changed when he accidentally gained the power to stretch like rubber…at the cost of never being able to swim again! Now Luffy, with the help of a motley collection of pirate wannabes, is setting off in search of the "One Piece," said to be the greatest treasure in the world...

The Straw Hats at long last reach Alabasta! They make landfall in the port town of Nanohana where they encounter an incredible character that's directly related to one of the crew! Meanwhile the Baroque Works' agents are summoned to Rainbase to meet their leader for the first time. Their leader, the dastardly Mr. 0, aka Sir Crocodile, learns that Luffy has survived and orders his immediate extermination!

It may not be the beginning of the story but it does give you a taste of the comedy of the show and prepares you for the action to come. Not much action in this volume but some great stuff is to come. I would suggest earlier volumes to new people but it is a solid set up piece for the story arc that follows.

Hehe, I really like this volume for more than one reason. Its a good read, and in one of Usopp's Pirate Art Gallery, some of my fanart is seen! Though, they missed spelled my artist name, I still love that they did in fact publish it. Sorta. Its the one by 'CuR' it should be CuB, but how I signed the name, having the line of the b go under the rest of the letters, it's no wonder they thought I meant CuR hehe.
