@tristenkw5: Don't base the show on the first season trust me its really slow it gets much better after if you want to see how good the show really gets, watch film Z its amazing its the closest depiction to how the show really is.

OP seriously needs to be made into a Vs. fighting game by a competent developer. I vote for Treasure, they did good work with the Bleach DS games.

And why are people talking about the anime? Read the manga so you can be up to date like everyone else (and bypass fillers).

A friend just posted this on facebook. Pretty relevant I think.

@mrslaphappy: Well I've got news for you then. One Piece is not something you should watch unless you want to complement the manga or for certain moments and for the openings, seeing as it's been riddled with terrible pacing, very low effort animation and with an ever diminishing budget for years now. What I'm telling everyone who might be interested in One Piece is to remember that it's foremost a manga and that it should always be your main focus. So if you enjoy endearing characters, adventure and great world building then check it out. It's not like it'll take long to catch up once you get hooked and then you'll just regret having to wait for new chapters.

@pyrodactyl:

Fair enough, I misspoke. Insane and ridiculous anime combined with a ridiculous large scale battle game with simple controls. There I even used the same word to describe both.

Look, I wasn't trolling to piss people off, but if you are gonna get uppity about it lets do this. I have never watched One Piece. I have heard good things, but just don't watch a whole lot of TV or movies. What I have seen has seemed silly and crazy in that generic label that gets put on most anime however. Now, I can tell you that I played a shitload of Dynasty Warriors 3 and what I saw from the trailer made me consider a purchase because I would like to know more about One Piece and haven't played a DW game since 2003.

If one little offhanded comment is enough to cram your panties all the way up your ass, I guess we just have differing opinions and you need to live with it.

The One Piece games are the "Dynasty Warrior" styled games I'm even remotely interested in ... And they're the only ones that are almost impossible to get ahold of. Stupid digital only releases...

this is neither here nor there, but i kinda wish there was another anime for me to get lost in like evangelion, ghost in the shell, or cowboy bebop. maybe it's for lack of trying, but i'd love to find another anime as psychologically disturbing/outright horrifying as evangelion, or something as mature as GITS. nothing else but those seem appealing to me (samurai champloo was damn good too tho)

Same. I've seen the exact same shows, and they were cool. Death Note was okay too I guess. But besides that, no thank you Anime.

@ripelivejam: Legend of the Galactic Heroes, straight up. There's a better description than I can manage located here (SA forums), but basically it's a sprawling war/politics story centered on the conflict of two human galactic civilizations (no aliens) with a huge cast, good writing, and tons of intrigue. It's crazy good.

@tristenkw5: The first season is really weak compared to the rest of the series. Read the manga or wikipedia or something. I felt the show really hit its stride during the Arlong Park arc.

One Piece deserves an awesome RPG game. Fighting and beat em up games don't represent the best things about the series well, which is the sense of adventure and characters. The world being reduced to an arena is not appealing.

Attack On Titan is the show for you! Good news, it started last weekend! Here, have episode one. If it puts the manga version to animation as well as it did in the first episode for the rest of the show, it'll be one of those greats alongside Cowboy Bebop and Ghost In the Shell, for sure.

So it looks like a Fist of the North Star mod with an anime version of Stretch Armstrong (or Plastic Man) and friends...a quick look would be interesting as not going anywhere near this game myself.

Can't tell if you're serious. Not only is dynasty warriors as simple as a brick but it's shallow and repetitive which makes it the complete opposite of the one piece series and a terrible fit.

But I guess those games cost 3 bucks to make and sell like crazy so they probably won't go with an original title with dept and character anytime soon...

It's in moments like this that I start to think ''maybe Phil Fish was right after all''

I love One Piece as a fan of cartoons, comic books, and video games. It takes all the great parts about those things and rolls it into something truly epic. The goofy art style alone harkens back to my younger days watching Saturday morning cartoons. I actually like how ridiculous the proportions on the ladies are. Makes me think of Jessica Rabbit in a good way. It breaks my heart that there are people who have the capacity to still love a whimsical cartoon but won't give it a try. I don't even watch that much anime anymore but One Piece has stayed with me for years. It is hands down my favorite cartoon of all time.

That first game was as tedious as you expect those types of games. I can appreciate that they drummed up this plot just so you can get dream matches between the various villains of the series but I know how one note the game play is regardless. I might buy it because I'm a sucker for this franchise but I can't in good conscience recommend it to the average gamer.

Everyone should read the One Piece manga. Stay away from the anime though, the quality has greatly declined in the last few years.

you should totaly try the one piece wii games if you've got a wii.

One Piece: Unlimited Adventure

One Piece: Unlimited Cruise

One Piece Unlimited Cruise: Episode 2

Open world beat them up RPG with great crafting and character progression. Half the reason I didn't regret owning a wii.

It's really too bad they replaced that series with yet another Dynasty Warriors clone

@heavyduty32: Friendship is the American translation of the word "Nakama" which is a huge word in the series, it's probably in quotes because they say it a lot and it has a special meaning other than just that they're friends.

Nakama means comrade, that's it. They literally have the same definition, it's not some mystical undefinable word from Glorious Nippon that has no true meaning in English, it's just a retarded holdover from translation groups.

All according to keikaku*

*keikaku means plan

I tend to think the same thing every now and then, Alex. It's so much easier to just revel in my loneliness and beat myself up over it than actually do something. But you need to remind yourself of how hurtful it is to the people that actually care about you, if you think like that.

@ravelle: If you like 'musou' (dynasty warriors) type games, then I'm sure it will be fine. Out of all the musou games that Tecmo Koei makes, this series seems to be the most polished and stylish. That trailer was put really well together for fans of the series.

One Piece, to me, is about what the protagonist and his team's goal is: To get him to become the king of all pirates. And how they go about that is through strong bond they have with each other, always relying on your friends for your shortcoming knowing that they'll have your back.

The overall tone for the anime for me is this fuzzy warmness you get when you're surrounded with just the best group of friends and do what you love best, despite the superficial claims of boobs and sexual innuendos that gets mixed at it. Granted, that's how the Japanese culture is: they're not ashamed about sexual themes if it's done in a cheeky manner. It's just for shits and giggles.

I always loved how the protagonist have this strong sense of vision of what he wants, and who he wants to be. And he has a good eye on who's going to be part of his crew (which I learnt and used this lesson my whole life!). With his strong persona, he, of course, attracts greater antagonists. But those antagonists aren't without their quirks. And that's what makes the whole series great for me, too. It's the hyperbolic characterisations of people.

Edit: The game's probably going to be like Dynasty Warriors, and I'm okay with that. I'll probably get it if it holds up to my expectations.
