Watching “One Piece” For The First Time (Part 1): From Romance Dawn To The Alabasta Arc | Column from the Editor

Earlier this month, I started watching “One Piece” for the first time. I wanted a show that would last me, as I had a bad habit of getting invested in very good one- or two-season TV shows only to have them end. I also noticed that “One Piece” consistently ranked high in best anime lists of all time, so I thought I’d give it a shot.

Since then, I’ve posted updates on InReview’s TikTok account, which have quickly become our most popular content on the app. Here is a roundup of the first batch of those TikToks.
