    So did they ever find the Grand Line?

    • Nee Nee

      Give it another 10 years

      • Rukunetsu Rindoru

        That sounds about right.

    • IvanAzure

      They reached it in the beginning of the Baroque Works arc (around episode 61 in the anime). On the other hand, I doubt they’ve found the “One Piece” yet, even though my current status on the series (I’m still watching the end of the “Baroque Works” saga) isn’t enough to be sure of it at all. ^^

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        I don’t see them finding One Piece for almost another decade at least, if it stays on its current pacing. But it’s gonna be an enjoyable 10 years regardless!

          I hope so. I am starting the Water 7 arc soon, and the one thing I really love about this series is even when it is dragging on in an arc, it keeps the comedy up, and offers a ton of action in other ways. Naruto is being shown again on Adult swim and after watching One Piece from episode 1 to the start of Water 7, Naruto just feels so dated, slow, and far, far inferior to One Piece. I feel One Piece even owns Bleach nowadays from a satisfaction after watching point of view.

          • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

            The Water 7 arc is the one that I think really showed the strengths of the series for the first time. High action, great storyline, another flashback that makes you emotional ( like Nami’s), etc. Emotional rollercoaster. And the arcs that follow just continue to get better and better.

            Recently Naruto’s gotten better (recently), but I don’t have much love for Bleach, unfortunately.

            I have no urge to buy Bleach seasons, but I do enjoy Adult Swim every Saturday night. Been watching Bleach on there for going on 5 years now, and if I can’t watch it physically, I dvr it, which I do regardless just out of habit since I set it to record from midnight to 3:00 am due to the other anime on there.

    • Herok♞

      The grand line was found years ago they even moved to the second part of it, they haven’t found one piece yet

      • Suicunesol

        Oh come on guys spoilers. >_< I just started reading One Piece a week ago. I just entered the Baroque Arc. (Even though it's pretty obvious the One Piece would not be found that early).

        • Herok♞

          trust me what I have said is really minor when you think about about it, I haven’t said anything that would ruin any surprises

          • Suicunesol

            Yeah, I figured it’s minor. But just in case someone else comes along and says something~

          • Testsubject909

            I have a non-spoiler.

            You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be confused, you’ll be pumped up, you’ll be excited, you’ll be pissed, you’ll be relieved, you’ll be surprised and you’ll probably find more then a few characters to continuously root for.

        • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

          If anything, they’re like 54% through the overall story.

          And that’s after about 13 years and over 700 chapters of weekly serialization.

          You’re in for quite the adventure.

        • Testsubject909

          You may or may not want to avoid the game.

          The game goes through the overall story in general. Meaning it’s full of spoilers.

    If there are people in the UK interested I think GAME’s the only retailer for the CE, rest of Europe ggets a choice to order from T-T:

    http://www.game.co.uk/en/one-piece-pirate-warriors-2-collectors-edition-216532

    Shouldn’t complain though cause for NA it’s direct download only =/…

    Lol at one of a kind CE, it’s only cause you can no longer buy the figure for cheap/no longer manufactured =P
    More photos of figure here:

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Wait, I remember asking about this before for another CE from GAME, but I can’t import this, right? (in the US)

      • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

        GAME do deliver to the States and many other countries around the world – just that pre-order bonuses are UK-only.

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          Oh alright, thanks

  • Solomon_Kano

    That’s a pretty damn sweet statue. Alas, DD only for us in NA. Ah well! Better than not having it at all, that for sure.

  • Charmchar

    That is definitely a statue :3

  • Spirit Macardi

    I seriously hope that One Piece returning to TV thanks to the resurrected Toonami will help make games like this more profitable. Hopefully enough to give future games proper physical releases and English voice tracks.

    • Testsubject909

      Not sure why the downvote…

      And yes. I will maintain and continue my confusion on this issue whenever it pops up…

    • http://twitter.com/Tiredman_ Tiredman

      Surprisingly, I will never play one of the games that has an arc I haven’t seen in it, so in a way the anime hurts game sells with me and others like me.

      • The Watcher

        why not? by the time they get to the arc in the actual show 1) this game will be expensive as hell. Why wait and risk your chances? I played Naruto Storm 2 and i only watched 45 episodes of the show and still enjoyed it and i will be doing the same thing for Storm 3 even though i’m only 102 eps in the show. the problem is the show has filler. and shows like Naruto, Bleach and One Piece has several hundred episodes. So you could be waiting for a very very, long time.

        • http://twitter.com/Tiredman_ Tiredman

          Don’t know what Im missing basically =p

          One Piece is my favorite anime, and I really don’t want anything ruined. I am the kind of One Piece fanatic who can watch the final 30 seconds of the Crocodile fight 30 times and still not be tired of it. I don’t even look at One Piece Wiki’s because I don’t want to know who future crew mates are. I looked at one once, but I worded my google search specifically so I wouldn’t get a surprise and that was when I was trying to find out which episode that one big navy base arc ended, the one that is on the collection 8.

          • The Watcher

            You do know that this Arc is pretty much made up just for this games sake.

  • Covnam

    I imagine that bag is completely full of meat. The figure is nice, if it was coming out in the US I might have gotten it, but it’s not worth the cost to import it imo.

  • Testsubject909

    Hello figurine that I won’t own because NA doesn’t have physical retail and thus no collector edition to be sold here…

    How you doing?

  • artemisthemp

    To bad the Limited Edition is exclusive to GAME in UK (ATM)
