    Very funny video guys xD.

    FoxxFireArt moderator on Nov. 12, 2012 at 3:32 p.m.

    Oh, Tom. One Piece is more than just a treasure. It's a DREAM (overly dramatic reading) and a promise. Luffy swore to Shanks after he saved his life that he would have a crew better than his and claim One Piece to become King of the Pirates. One Piece is just the goal of one boy fulfilling his dream, having adventures, and facing adversity to reach it.

    This is the amazing thing about ONE PIECE. Check out the Oricon sale tracking of all the new releases for 2011 in Japan. Remember that these sales only reflect the number of new volumes sold between Nov. 2010-Nov. 2011. It doesn't count other back issue sales.

    RankManga Series2011 Sales
    #1ONE PIECE37,996,373 units
    #2NARUTO6,874,840 units
    #8BLEACH4,187,258 units

    No other series is even close to ONE PIECE numbers.

    I thought Luffy didn't care anymore about the One Piece. He was just seeking adventure.

    I take it you're new to the series? -___-

    fuuuu I laughed so damn good at Tony's description of dragonball z. So accurate

    MrDirector786on Nov. 13, 2012 at 12:33 a.m.

    Heh. That was pretty funny.

    Daniel_Newton moderator on Nov. 13, 2012 at 1:07 a.m.

    Good video, though I feel the need to be the guy who points out it's a sweat drop, not a tear drop. We have a wiki page about manga iconography if you need to brush up!

    Also, Tony's description of Dragon Ball Z was pretty spot on. Goku was on Snake Way for like a whole season of the anime, or it felt that way, anyway. In Kai he gets across it in like 2 episodes or something.

    So I'm wrong then? I'm just asking. This is what I've heard.

    FoxxFireArt moderator on Nov. 13, 2012 at 2:41 p.m.

    @AniBleach:

    Luffy wants to be King of the Pirates. The only way to do that is to get One Piece. He would never give up on that.

    Luffy care about One Piece, but he don't want to know about One Piece. He want to find out about it himself, that the adventure :)

    Hmm, I'm surprise to see G-Man on here

    LOL Nice Vid.
