    Uniqlo have added some Film Z t-shirts. They removed the Fishman Island t-shirt I wanted though. :cry:

  2. Ike

    Was listening to Fight Together a lot yesterday.


    Haha, yeah. Also slightly creepy.


    :o They have a Gaimon t-shirt! :laughing:


    They have some good new designs, tempted by the Fishman island art and the Elephant Gun t-shirts. Bet you ordered the Law t-shirt? ;)

    Good opening, not my favourite (which is Brand New World) but it's pretty good. The song might grow on me, took me a while to like Crazy Rainbow, but the song is pretty catchy, it was stuck in my head for a while this morning.


    Love it when they animate the colo(u)r spreads.

  4. I've got Strong World to watch but I think FUNImation are releasing it this year so might wait and watch it then, bit undecided though. :P


    FUNImation are currently on Franky's backstory on the DVD sets, think I only watched the first disk, need to watch the second. :laughing:

  5. Ike

    Watched the Chopper movie last night, pretty good (easily better than movie 8 ;)). Just reminds me how good/sad Chopper's backstory is.


    Has some weird animation in places and they changed a lot of the Wapol fight. Was also odd having Robin and frank there, Robin pretty much replaced Vivi though.


    Recommend watching it.

    I guess you could always buy volumes 24+ in the meantime might be a while before those get a box set.


    Saw it on the Arlong Park forums, and it got reported on a few anime news websites.


    Amazon UK already has a page for it but you can't preorder yet. http://www.amazon.co.uk/One-Piece-Box-Set-Baroque/dp/1421560747/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1363713813&sr=8-1

    Used to use Mangapanda but their translations were pretty bad so I've just been using Mangareader recently, I was wondering if there was a better place to read them myself. Wish Viz made Shonen Jump Alpha available over here.


    Viz are doing a boxset with volumes 1 - 23 if you haven't started buying volumes yet, not out until November though.



    MSRP $185.99 U.S. / $185.99 CAN • Available November 1st 2013

    A premium box set that bundles the first two story arcs of ONE PIECE, one of the most beloved and bestselling manga series of all time! The Box Set includes volumes 1-23, which comprise the series’ first two story arcs, East Blue and Baroque Works. The set includes an exclusive poster and mini-comic, and delivers great savings over buying the volumes individually to make for a true pirate’s treasure for any manga fan!


    Amazon should stock it.

    Depends, since they only went up to volume 12 with the 3-in-1 books it's up to you if you want a matching collection or not. The paper is a bit cheap as well which is why it's cheaper. Plus you don't get the proper covers. They are bit heavy if your holding them as well.


    Personally, I would just get the single volumes.


    Travelling Man, Forbidden Planet and Waterstones often do 3 for 2 deals if you have any nearby that can help.


    Just a warning though; they do call Zoro, Zolo. Doesn't bother me but I know it's annoys a lot of people.


    I thought about getting a few volumes in Japanese, but I never got round to it. I do have some of the data books and Colo(u)r Walks. Thought about picking up some of the LOG books but the shipping costs too much.

  9. Includes both the Funimation dub and the Japanese dub with English subs. Imported the US sets but ordered these to support Manga Entertainment.


    Haha, yeah. I'm kinda out of room for all my manga as well. And anything else for that matter. :P Do you want to buy the Viz English releases or import the Japanese volumes?

  10. Ike

    Haha, just not my colour really.


    Saying that I ended up buying it and 3 others (including the one with the Crew's Jolly Rogers, which is also yellow :P) which arrive today! :yay:

  11. Ike

    Uniqlo have some new One Piece T-shirts. http://www.uniqlo.com/uk/store/clothing/ut/onepiece/


    That Battle Franky one is suuuper, shame it's yellow. Might buy it anyway.

  12. Ike

    Haha, is real?


    You read the latest manga chapter, 695 by any chance?

  13. Guess someone answered you already, but yeah it's pretty much the same as the original CPP. It doesn't add much size to the XL so it's not big as you would expect and doesn't add much weight to the XL. I found it a little more comfortable then the original as well. As for wear and tear, I haven't really used it too much to have any, but I don't expect it to either really. My original is still good as new. :)


    Depends if your going to use it much, I think they might release it with Monster Hunter in March but that's speculation on my part so it depends if you can wait 2 months and see if they do or not. Importing it would guarantee you have one and in a week or two though so that's a bonus. Worth getting one though, can't play RE: Revelations without it myself.

  14. Ike

    Forgot to mention before, but there's a special edition PSP for Romance Dawn. Was really tempting but don't really want to pay that much for a PSP at this point.

  15. Ike

    Yeah, was from the opening. Was nice they didn't just reuse "We Are!" for once.


    The first animated scene I saw was Usopp disbanding the Usopp Pirates and it looked like it had been redrawn




    But I don't think there's any new footage unless there's some later in the game or something, but most of it seems to come from the anime anyway.

  16. Ike

    Few more:








    I'll stop spamming you now. :)

  17. Ike

    Since it's on the PSP I think the chances of localisation are pretty slim unless they just release it on the PSN store with Vita compatibility. I can get along fine in Japanese though I think there may be some small battle details I'm missing plus I have no idea what the items do.










  18. Ike

    (post was too long so I split it)


    You can equip items to make the Strawhats strong, one item I got for Luffy is his backup he had in Skypiea I think and you can actually see it which is always a cool thing. Haven't found anything else that changes appearance yet though. I think there's an item combining mechanic but it's in Japanese so I have no idea. :/


    The actual maps are bit basic, they do have a little exploration but it's not too interesting. The main story maps have been pretty square, but the side quest maps are a little more rounded and slightly more interesting. The first stage had a running segment and you had to press buttons to break down doors.


    The story starts from the beginning and it goes to at least Marineford. Cut scenes have a manga style panel to them and uses stills from the anime. Even got a fully animated scene after the Kuro battle.


    Music's not bad, still don't use music from the anime but it has a new opening song.

  19. Ike

    Well honestly I wasn't expecting much but, surprisingly, it's a lot better RPG than I expected, even if it is somewhat basic.


    Yeah battles are turn based, but you can join attacks into combos, so for example say Luffy can attack 3 times then use a Gum Gum Pistol. There are "special" abilities, I guess not sure what they are called, that you can use to heal or increase stats. Ussop has a move that just seems to knock enemies down (I think it involves him lying or something (I have 8000 men!), might be making that up though :P). You can unlock more combos and powerup our moves by sending SP.


    Boss battles seem to have a huge difficulty spike, Morgan and Buggy were long boss battles, although Kuro was the first one to give me trouble. I hear Krieg is tough and he's up next.

  20. Ike

    Think someone uploaded the soundtrack on the Arlong Park forums if you visit there, it's probably on youtube anyway. The raw for the Luffy Special is floating about as well if you want to check it out. Got my shipping notice for the PSP game this morning.


    Yeah, saw it earlier. Dark Pit looks better than Pit, might end up buying both now. Still doesn't have a release date unless they announced it recently. Still waiting for Link to arrive. :(

  21. Ike

    Got the One Piece Film Z soundtrack in today. Got some interesting songs, but nothing super amazing so far, only half way through listening though. One Piece has some of the best background music ever.


    Preorder bonus was a set of stickers but it turned out to just be the cover art, which is still pretty cool.

  22. Ike

    It's from the new Luffy special coming out in December. Knew about the special before but didn't know Coby was going to be in it, thought it was meant to be a retelling of Luffy's past like the Episode of Nami special but it'll have some new stuff so interesting to see how Coby ties into it.


    Found a new trailer for it:



    It's supposed to tie in with the new movie (I think), which also has a trailer:



    Pretty excited for this movie, trailer for it looks great.

  23. Ike

    OP Unlimited Cruise 2 is under £18 at Shopto if you still haven't got a copy.

  24. Yep, not really going be some action for a few episodes now that we're at the end of the arc. Some interesting story stuff coming up though. Won't say too much otherwise I'll spoil it :P


    That was really We Go!?. It didn't sound like it too me, lol.


    Guess you'll find out next week about Jinebei, or you could read the manga ;) Unless you really want me to spoil it :P


    Chopper and Sanji were funny in this episode. Was laughing how Robin had to carry Chopper about and Sanji being jealous.


    Just hope they don't do a filler arc now.


    Watched movie 5 last night, was better then I remembered. Don't actual remember why I disliked it now. Think it was because I originally thought Zoro was acting odd it in.
