Watching “One Piece” For The First Time (Part 7): Fish-Man Island | Column from the Editor

Last year, I started watching “One Piece,” and I started documenting my journey getting through the show on InReview’s TikTok page. You can watch my previous batch of “One Piece” TikToks here. This batch covers the show’s Fish-Man Island arc. I only got through one major arc this month, as I needed a break after the trauma that happened at Marineford.

Hot take: Usopp would have beaten Luffy if he had sea prism stone at their fight at Water 7 (even a pair of handcuffs):

Why the “back to zero” blood transfusion scene in the Fish-Man Island arc is one of the series’ most brilliant moments:
