I originally intended to do this much later, but with the time skip in the anime coming up, I decided this would be a good time to start. A while back I was reading a blog that was focusing an entire year on Rumiko Takahashi’s work. I liked the idea, and decided to do the same for One Piece. With a few differences. Instead of focusing on just the manga, I would review everything related to One Piece I could get my hands on.
This includes the Funimation DVDs, the released manga volumes, music, movies, ovas, games, the anime episodes. Basically anything goes. As long as I can get my hands on it. Originally I intended to spend some time gathering as much reviewable material as I could. But the timing is just too good now. So I’ll review what I have now, and whenever I have the money I’ll pick up new material. A year is a long time, who knows what I can find in that time. And who knows, maybe I’ll suddenly find a ton of spendable cash.
In order to be certain that all your donations go towards Year of One Piece, I won’t provide a donation button. Instead you can click that link for my amazon wish list, where I have entered the materials I might need later on.
I’m going to continue other reviews, especially weekly anime reviews, but I can promise at least one One Piece related review each week. More whenever I have the time.
A year is a long time, especially for one man. But One Piece deserves more than a year. And there is so much released even outside of Japan that I could easily fill a year with just that. So join me, every Monday (for One Piece anime reviews) and Wednesday as I delve deep into the world wide phenomena that is One Piece.
