This volume begins at the instant that the last one left off, with an ancient ship falling out of the sky and about to crush the Going Merry. Odd. After dodging this unlikely hazard, Nami discovers that her Log Pose is pointing STRAIGHT UP. Even odder! Finally, another pirate ship arrives, captained by a giant monkey. Incredibly odd! The monkey captain Salvage King Masira is all fine with the Straw Hats as long as they don't interfere with his looting sunken ships, but of course they do interfere and get Masira angry, until Luffy accidently tells Masira how good he looks. That's odd too.
Luffy and Co. proceed to nearby Jaya Island to get some answers about how to get the ship into the sky. Jaya is crawling with pirates and nobody seems to mind as the Marines never come there. One of these pirates, Bellamy the Hyena, is trying to make a name for himself by beating up everyone who challenges him. When Luffy meets Bellamy and tells him about his dream to go to Sky Island and be the Pirate King, Bellamy tells him that all such dreams are crap and beats him and Zoro up (surprisingly neither of them attempt to fight back). Another pirate, a huge, coarse man named Marshall D. Teach, disagrees with Luffy on most matters but encourages him to keep following his dream.
Finding no help in Mock Town (aptly named), Luffy and Co. proceed to the other side of Jaya, where they run into Masira's brother Shojo (another salvager) and a treasure hunting hermit named Montblanc Cricket.Read more ›
Originally broadcast in 2003-2004, "Season Three, First Voyage" (actually Season Six by Japanese numbering. Not sure why that was done.) covers thirteen episodes, #144-156 and two story arcs. There episodes are split between two DVDs each packed in its own slim case.
The first story starts off at the moment of the end of One Piece: Season Two, Seventh Voyage, when a ship comes plummeting from the sky and narrowly avoids crushing the Going Merry. That is clearly the signal for a new adventure, even more so when the Log Pose begins pointing straight to the sky. There are rumors of islands in the sky, but most people dismiss these as fairy tales. Monkey D. Luffy is not about to let common sense get in his way, so if the Log Pose is pointing up then up they must go. Oh, and of course a giant monkey arrives to salvage the fallen ship, so it is business as usual in the "One Piece" world.Read more ›
This set pulls away from the filler arcs of the final voyage of Season 2, and jumps back into the manga based arcs with the Jaya arc and the start of the Skypiea arc.
The Jaya arc (ep. 144-152) is a pretty interesting arc in my personal opinion. Nami is confused because the log pose (for those of you that don't know much about the series a log pose is a sort of compass that points to the next island you need to go to by using magnetic fields) is pointing towards the sky. Not long afterwards, a gigantic ship falls from the sky and sinks in the ocean. Luffy and others gear up to go underwater to see what sort of secrets the ship has and find a 200 year old map to an island called "Skypiea". In the midst of this, a salvage crew led by Captain Masira, are also trying to get what's in this ship that just crashed. Eventually one thing leads to another and Masira and crew are beat down and the Strawhats continue forward until they find an island named Jaya and dock at a town appropriately named Mock Town. This town is filled with pirates fighting one another at almost every turn. Eventually Luffy & Zoro run into an up and coming pirate named Bellamy who ridicules them for their high aspirations and furthermore when asked of the possibility of an island in the sky. There's a small altercation and Luffy and Zoro are left beat up a bit, but still in good shape (they don't fight back). Not long afterwards they run into a pirate named Blackbeard, who seems like a very likeable character. He urges Luffy to continue to pursue his dreams and that he'll definitely find Sky Island.Read more ›

Better than that horrible 4kids version. However, the Funimation English dub version sucks too. Because most of the voices don't match the characters, and also Zoro voice is way... Read morePublished on July 3, 2010 by Roronoa
