Ah, I see. I'll keep that in mind that it just means crewmate or friend.

Chapter 4: Marine captain "Axe Hand" Morgan (September 6)

Summary

Helmeppo promises Luffy will be executed. Morgan likes to talk about rank. Luffy goes back to Zoro and says that Zoro has to join his crew if Luffy brings back his sword. Zoro doesn't comply, but Luffy goes anyway. Helmeppo is punched by Morgan, who talks about rank. Morgan orders the execution of a little girl and slashes at a marine who doesn't comply. He has a lower rank. A statue for Morgan was built because he has rank. The statue gets destroyed once Luffy Gum Gum Rockets his way up though. Morgan gets mad, while in the meantime Koby tries to untie Zoro. He is shot though. The chapter ends with Luffy taking Helmeppo hostage and asking where Zoro's sword is.

Opinion

Not really much happens in this chapter. We meet Morgan, a corrupt marine who really seems to care about his rank. A little too much to be funny IMO. Best part of the chapter was Koby getting shot.

Character of the chapter

Luffy. Ignoring Zoro's opinion and already having decided that he's his next crew member, as well as barging in a marine base and destroying the statue. And casually apologising for it.

Best page

Spoiler:
 

Not only has Koby getting shot, but also an awesome Zoro death stare.

Best panel



For lack of better panel.

Best quote

Morgan wrote:
"I have rank."

Sums up his entire character.

NAKAMA moment

IT HAS NONE.

In retrospect

We are led to believe Zoro has one sword. Hmm...

Opinion on the chapter: It was ok. More like a transition chapter than an actual story chapter. Koby getting shot was great.


Best panel: Koby getting shot.


Best character: Luffy for breaking the statue and whoever shot Koby.


Overall: It was just ok as said before. So Zoro has one sword eh?

Chapter 5: Pirate King and Greatest Swordsman (September 7)

Summary

Luffy starts using Helmeppo as a meatshield, while Koby tells Zoro the truth about Helmeppo's plans. Luffy finds the room that is supposed to hold Zoro's sword, but there are three of them. Koby and Zoro are surrounded my marines and Morgan and are to be immediately executed. Zoro says he can't die because he still has something to do. Cue flashback. Little Zoro has just lost his 2000th match to the daughter of the sensei, Kuina. Zoro gets mad and later challenges Kuina to a duel with real swords. Zoro loses again and says he hates it. Kuina says that she'll become weak soon because she's a woman. Zoro gets pissed and tells her that that doesn't mean anything and that he'll win from her because he's stronger, not because he's a guy. They make a promise that one of them will be the world's greatest swordsman. The next day Kuina dies by falling off the stairs though. Awww. Zoro promises he'll become strong in her place. End flashback. Luffy appears right before Zoro and Koby are executed and returns Zoro his swords. Zoro uses Santoryuu, the Three Sword Style and finally decided that he'll fight with Luffy.

Opinion

A great chapter. We finally learn Zoro's backstory, which is tragic of course, and he finally decides to become a pirate. Luffy bouncing back the bullets was good stuff too.

Character of the chapter

Zoro. He never gives up, not in wanting to beat Kuina, nor in achieving his goal to become the world's greatest swordsman.

Best page

Spoiler:
 

Great words by Zoro the man and the promise on which his entire motivation is based.

Best panel



More greatness by Zoro the man.

Best quote

Zoro wrote:
"Are you the offspring of the devil... forget it... rather than to just die here I'll become what you want... a pirate!!!"

CREWMEMBER GET

NAKAMA moment

IT HAS NONE.

In retrospect

Kuina dies by falling off the stairs. Quite a pitiful death, since we now know people can survive 4 ton bats to the head and getting nuked at point blank range. Poor Kuina.

Opinion on the chapter: It was a good flashback and good sequence of actions. Zoro about to get free ftw. And um wtf Kuina?


Random plothole: This could be just a bad translation but in the end of 4, Luffy says he's gonna get Zoro's sword, but in the beginning of 5, he knows about more than 1 sword. Hmm...


Best page:

Spoiler:
 


Best character: Zoro. His determination to become the greatest swordsmen is awesome and his devotion to Kuina is insane.


Random Fact: In the 4kids dub, Kuina beat the shit out of bandits and then they came back and permanently injured her. She didn't fall down the stairs and die. (From what I remember.)


Overall: It was quite good leading up to this next upcoming fight. Poor Kuina.

Opinion: Chapter is good. Of course we know Zoro's getting free in a small bit. All we can do is wait.

The pathetic death is supposed to make it even more tragic. Here you have this young woman who is an amazing swordsman at such a young age, yet she dies by falling off the stairs. She doesn't die in battle as a great swordsman, she falls off the GODDAMN STAIRS.

Like her dad said. "A human is so fragile".

Anyway, glad you're awesome and joined the readthrough.

Chapter 6: The First (September 8)

Summary

Luffy starts untying Zoro. Morgan orders his men to kill them. Just in time Zoro is cut loose and uses his three swords to defend himself. Luffy uses Gum Gum Whip to take care of the fodder. Zoro says that he'll cut Luffy open if he ever stands in the way of his dream. Luffy says the greatest swordsman is the least he should be to stand next to the pirate king. Luffy starts fighting with Morgan and is beating him, but Helmeppo shows up while pointing a gun at Koby. Koby says he doesn't want to stand in Luffy's way, but Luffy says whatever and Gum Gum Pistols Helmeppo. Morgan gets ready to attack, but is then defeated by Zoro. "No problem, captain".

Opinion

We finally see Zoro's fighting style in action and it looks pretty sweet. Also, the villains are finally defeated, but not in a really epic way. It was a good chapter.

Character of the chapter

Tie between Zoro and Luffy. Both owned marines, both defeated a main villain and both made a good quote.

Best page

Spoiler:
 

Great spread. Too bad the scan looks ugly and the translation is wrong.

Best panel



Three sword style FTW.

Best quote

Zoro wrote:
"I'll be a pirate. I promise!! I went against the marines, so I'll be an outlaw too. But remember this!! I have an ambition!! I'll become the world's greatest swordsman!!! I don't care what they'll think of me... if they think I'm good or evil... as long as name is heard throughout the entire world!!! You wanted me in!! If thanks to you I won't be able to achieve my goal... I'll cut open your stomach as an apology"

Dayum.

NAKAMA moment

IT HAS NONE.

In retrospect

Zoro tells Luffy that he'll kill him if he ever stand in the way of his dream.

480 chapters later Zoro will give up his life and dream to save that of his captain's.

No more overalls. It's basically the same thing as Opinion anyway. But there we go.

Luffy. He punched Koby.

Opinion: About time Koby got punched again. That alone makes the chapter epic. Otherwise it's still quite good.


Favorite Character: Luffy for pawnching.

Favorite Page/Panel: Same as the other two


Retrospect: We get to see Koby a little later and he's still a little pussy. IRL, no one makes it in the military like that.

Chapter 8: Introducing Nami (September 10)

Summary

Luffy and Zoro are hungry and need a navigator. Luffy sees a bird and tries to get it, but is taken away. Zoro sails after him and meets a bunch of pirates, belonging to the Buggy pirate crew. They tell that a girl stole their treasure. In a nearby town that girl has just stolen the map of the Grand Line and is being chased by pirates. Luffy lands nearby and the girl tells him to take care of the pirates. One pirate slaps Luffy's hat away, Luffy gets angry and stomps all three of them. The girl introduces herself as Nami, a thief, specialty pirates and wants to work with Luffy.

Opinion

More of a transitional chapter, but still a good one. We're of course introduced to Nami, which is always great too.

Character of the chapter

Nami. She stole a treasure and boat, was able to take care of three armed pirates and then used Luffy to take care of another three.

Best page

Spoiler:
 

Shit yea.

Best quote

Luffy wrote:
DON'T YOU DARE TOUCH MY TREASURE.

NONE.

In retrospect

Nami's growth spurt hasn't set in yet...

Not much here but.

Opinion on the chapter: A nice transitional chapter for setups. We are about to learn of Buggy's identity soon enough.


Character: Nami. She did all the work besides Luffy at the end.


No favorite page/panel/quote.


In retrospect: We see Nami holds true to her "steal from pirates" persona even after crew joinage.

I don't have time to do the full review now (I'll do that tomorrow with the next chapter), so I'll just post my opinion now.

Buggy is a dick. A flashy dick. Nami is properly introduced now and there's some nice foreshadowing of the Arlong arc. The chemistry between Nami and Luffy is excellent.
