This is the first time I blogged about 'One Piece' and since I'm not really a fan of this anime beside watching a few episodes and hearing it from my friends, kindly pardon me for the lack of information. In my opinion, 'One Piece' started off more as an anime that appeals to children, light-heart with some serious fights at intervals. It's like how 'Dragonball' initially started. I guessed as time goes by, the fans grown up and the anime also slowly changed it's direction maturely. The crew of 'Going Merry' had developed and some evolved after endless battles and training. The story setting based on pirates gave it a wide galaxy of expansion, overflowing with ideas for continuity. It's no wonder 'One Piece' is by far the longest running anime with over 500 episodes till today. Over the years, the anime had also gained much popularities, making it one of the top selling manga & anime. It's hard to go wrong with big toy companies like Bandai and Banpresto producing the figurines.
