    One Piece: Anime Review





    Exotic food, magnificent temples, orthodox religions and diverse cultures are some of the things that define Asia. But those are mostly textbook descriptions, for in this present time, Asia is gaining more prominence with pop music, fashion trends, television dramas, and of course, Anime! What is Asia without these greater-than-life animated series?

    Animes originated from Japan. They are animated productions featuring computer or hand-drawn animation. Many of which are based on Japanese manga or serialized comic books and graphic novels. Tons of animes had already been produced and distributed not only in Asian countries but all over the world.  Some only last for a couple of seasons while others span years of viewership. Some are pseudo-realist while others are purely based on the out-of-this-world imagination of the creators. As for me, I have several favorite, but among these peeves, one that I got so addicted with is ONE PIECE.

    One Piece is based on one of the longest-running manga series of the same title in Japan (which according to all-knowing Wikipedia is also the best-selling manga series in history). It is about the journey and adventures of a boy who dreams to be the next “King of the Pirates”. The manga was serialised back in 1997 but the anime version only started airing in late 1999. As of the writing, the anime is on its 680th episode. In my country (so obviously I am not Japanese), the dubbed version only came on television several years later. From that very first episode, I was instantly captivated and became an uber-avid fan. And thanks to the Internet, Google and countless anime sites, I do not have to wait for the television premiere. I am actually on my third re-watch of the entire anime series (LOL!). So what made One Piece extra special from other animes? It’s simply the art, story, humor, and characterization.

    Finding Dory may not be as creative or unique as the first film. However, it has an equivalent amount of energy, fun, tears, and life lessons.
