The Straw Hats win the Davy Back Fight and sail on to the island of Seven Waters where there is a whole city of shipwrights to work on the Merry Go. The shipwrights show their power and the Straw Hats convert all the gold into ready cash and immediately start having robbery attempts on them.

While the end of the Fight was stupid, the introduction to the shipwrights was as madcap as I could want in the One Piece world. And Luffy’s response was just what I would expect from him, as evinced by this panel:

I now have higher hopes for this Water Seven arc than I did when it started out. That makes me happy.

    1. That is one of the issues with reviewing a long series of manga. I either have to recap the whole book and hope the readers remember enough from my last review of a One Piece volume, or I do like this and pretty much ignore you all.
      If my goal was to get you to read the series or discuss it with you, I’d probably try the recap route. But since these are for me and the me I’ll be in a decade, well, you all get the shaft…

      1. Yeah, I know there’s a guy named Luffy and he powers up with magic fruit and gets in fights with crocodiles and plays at being a pirate. So it’s a Manga Peter Pan or something. Most comic plots just repeat a cycle anyway.

    1. Luffy is asking the leader of the ship builders, ie, a very skilled and important man, to come be a pirate with him.
      The clowns are the man’s underlings who take his “position” way more seriously than he does 🙂


  1. Hi there ^^

    So, you are at Water Seven now… (and probably soon at the second volume of this, since I comment so late this time ^^”)
    I am glad that you seem to like this arc, this is one of my more favourite ones – and the plot is not repetitive to the arcs before, I can assure you ^^

    And again you chose a panel that describes Luffys character perfect xD His habit to ask everyone to join his crew will become even better in future arcs ^^

    1. Welcome back Misaki.

      So far, Water Seven is proving quite interesting. Knowing that others like it too means I’ll be able to hang tough in regards to any volumes that might fall flat for me.

      Yep, next review goes up tomorrow 😀
