(Opinion on volumes 6-9)Why I (kept) reading it: Found the first five volumes semi-pleasant but couldn't figure out why it was so popular, particularly with adults, and wanted to keep reading till I understood and confirmed it still didn't appeal to me. Heard many say the arc that starts in these volumes (involving Nami) was what really hit them in the gut and hooked them on the series.Pros: Situation in Nami arc meant for a while the conflict involved more than just trying to overpower some evil bad guy (though it looks like it'll be going back to that in the subsequent volumes), as well as a bit of moral ambiguity. Luffy's perhaps idealist but simple and preach-free way of dealing with Nami's behavior rings true to the character and made me feel a little bit the refreshing appeal of him.Cons: Same old story with dramatic pasts being used to develop characters rather than making their present-time behavior more complex and speak for itself. Foes still...zany and cartoonishly evil.Conclusion: I guess I'm sort of like Luffy. I care a lot more about how I see the characters acting here and now than whatever angst-filled past someone can expound about. Only while Luffy saw something he liked in all these people, they're just too one-dimensional for me. The plot was a little more engaging here than in previous volumes, but now that this purportedly emotionally intense section fails to make me sympathize with them any more than before, I think it's time I give up and label this manga not for me.
