NEW WORLD Part 1
As a child, monkey D. Luffy dreamed of becoming King of the Pirates. But his life changed when he accidentally gained the power to stretch like rubber...at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, Luffy sets off in search of the “One Piece,” said to be the greatest treasure in the world....
ROMANCE DAWN FOR THE NEW WORLD
Determined to become stronger and challenge the toughest seas in the world, Luffy and his crew decided to go into training. When they finally reunite years later, they will meet brand new enemies and adventures!
Catch up.... the public execution of Luffy’s brother, Ace, sparked the war between the Whitebread Pirates and the Navy. This battle that Luffy took part in was later called the Paramount War. This battle came to a close with the deaths of Ace and Whitebread. After escaping, Luffy was wallowing in sorrow on the Island of Women. he then remembered what happened ten years ago with Ace and his other brother, Sabo. Understanding his own weakness, Luffy reconfirmed how important his friends were for him in order to move forward. That was when Rayleigh appeared before Luffy and made him a certain offer. Luffy agreed and sent out a message only his crew would understand....
What happens....unfortunately there isn’t really much for me to say about this book, yeah, it was great seeing what they did, or more so what they are now, having a small slice out of the other pirates around and the start information about Haki, but really, it was a middle book and nothing really happened.
They just came back together as a crew.
Nothing epic, nothing special, but really something you should read if you want to enjoy the series. Honestly, this is probably the book you’ll crave to read above most which is saying a hell of a lot.
And it didn’t loss what you hoped, didn’t disappoint, but if I went into any more detail than what’s around now, I would give away the whole thing.
Saying this, next book comes out around June and when it does I’m planning on doing another ‘Why I love One Piece’ which will have all the new things the crew can do and what they look like, so why don’t you stay tuned for that one.
When we continues.... As the Straw Hat crew dives underwater, they encounter one danger after another. As if vicious pirates weren’t bad enough, how will they contend with the giant sea beasts?! And when they finally make it to Fish-Man Island, can Sanji survive come face to face with a beautiful mermaid....?
