Luffy’s quest to be the King of Pirates has led him to the village of Orange Town. Well technically a bird snatched him from his boat and dropped him there, now Luffy and Zolo have been separated Little does Luffy know that falling into Orange Town will be a defining moment in his journey to become the King of Pirates. By chance Luffy runs into the mysteryious thief Nami, and learns of the nefarious pirate captain: Buggy the Clown. Will Luffy be able to overcome the clown? And what tricks does Buggy the Clown have up his sleeve?
The series is off to a great start with the second volume. More characters, more locations, and more plot points. There is so much going on in this volume and it is amazing. We have Luffy dealing with what Nami got him into, Zolo searching for Luffy and Nami trying to steal Buggy’s treasure.
The art is as amazing as ever. Buggy the Clown and his crew are just fun to look at. The village looks nice and cozy. Zolo and Buggy’s second mate Cabaji have an amazing sword fight. Eiichiro is a very talented artist to be able to draw seemingly anything.
A drastic improvement over the previous volume. I thought volume 1 was actually near perfect but this volume drives that stake even further. I have zero complaints with this volume at all. This series is quickly becoming my favorite. A great read that I definitely recommend picking up.
