I've been curious of lates and theres no point beating around the bush so here's the questions for ya' all
How did ya get into One Piece?As for me, East blue was great.
I remember during one summer break, a few years back before I got into One Piece my brother always told me to check this series out, he showed me some images of the Strawhat crew during their East Blue days and I, being the naive, stupid, stupid teen I was, I said something along the lines of "Ew another gross cartoon", I never looked back into that series again, haaah boy was I foolish.
A couple weeks later my bro was watching an episode, more specifically Zoro vs Hachi and there was a moment where I overlooked what I was doing and caught the scene where Zoro was dodging all of Hachi blades, aiiigh that was too neat man! Got my bro to move over as soon as possible and snagged his headphones out 'cause like it or not I was gonna join him in the fray of watching that anime, hah least to say he was pretty dang delighted. After that I watched a few more episode before he had to leave, I then took my time to start watching the series from the very beginning and catch up to where we left off, took me around 2 days? Which is amazing since I'm a slow reader that didn't watch a lot of shows back then, hahah!
So to speak, I was re-introduced to One Piece through my bro, not gonna count the airing of Toonami back in 2004 'cause my brain refuses to remember 4Kids dub oops and anyway, specifically Arlong arc and I guess Zoro in a way drove me to actually start watching it? Yeah, it's been a few years since then and I've yet to get off the OP hook I got myself into back in 2007.. Doubt I'm gonna get off it any time soon either oTL;; tl;dr:
I was a stupid teen and refused to start watchin OP until Zoro vs Hachi fight back in 2007
But dudes and dudettes thats my story for how I got into One Piece! How about you guys?
I'd be delighted to read your experiences /o/
