    For me, One Piece is best Manga ever written. The story always touch my heart, it is a combination of faithful friendship, laughter, loyalty and action.Some people might find this manga as silly and pointless (I’ve heard this before) but they never truly read the Manga and therefore judging it simply from the cover. I’ve been in that position too…and thank God I finally looked beyond the cover and found the greatest adventure any Mangaka ever written.More about One Piece at my blog One Piece Reread 2010 > One Piece Reread 2011 > One Piece Reread 2012

    This is good! Better than what I've expected! Bon-chan's one of the best friendship that Luffy have! Ivankov is quite funny, and everyone's out of the jail! Wohoo, Crocodile! Jimbei!!!!

    As usual, I don't do reviews of the One Piece series, since there are over 500 chapters of epic awesomeness at this point. I'm mostly doing this to keep track of what happens per volume.The epicness of the Impel Down arc begins right here in this volume. If the previous volumes were any indication, just...yikes.- From the get-go, everyone with Luffy (including Buggy, Mr. 3, and Mr. 2 Bon Clay) falls down to level 4, which is bad for Buggy and Mr. 3, who want up and out, and good for Mr. 2 and Luffy, who want to find Ivankov and Ace, respectively. Needless to say, the groups split up, with Buggy and Mr. 2 rerouting themselves back to the third or second floor (I forget which).- The shmat hits the fan when Magellan, the warden, personally shows up to give Luffy his reckoning. And boy, oh boy, does Luffy get his reckoning here. Bon Clay knows a losing fight when he sees one, so he abandons Luffy to save him later.- Buggy and Mr. 3 try to attack Hannyabal and fail. This is where Mr. 2 comes in again to save the day. (I do love that there's a little scene of Bon Clay turning into Nami, hey, at least we see her once in the volume!) With the change of heart, Bon Clay eventually drags Buggy and Mr. 3 with him to go find a cure and save Luffy, who is practically poisoned and dying.- In comes the heartfelt journey (which was pretty damn long in the anime, by the way) of a friend trying to save the life of a friend. Bon Clay surprises with his crazily-built, muscled exterior (actually, considering he's a trained dancer and fighter, I shouldn't be that surprised that even Bon Clay has a set of ripped pectorals beneath his ballerina costume). He fights off rabid wolves, to the point of almost-defeat, until Luffy unleashes his Haki yet again.- Level 5.5 comes in, and Ivankov (a hilariously awesome okama character), saves the day by plugging Luffy with hormones as high as a mountain. I don't even want to know how Luffy's going to survive in the long-term, if people keep shaving off decades of his life. Nevermind, anyway, Luffy eventually recovers to fight another day (GANBAREIIII), and Ivankov does a double-take when he realizes he just saved the life of his best friend's son.- Operation "Spring Ace and Luffy out of Impel Down" commences, only it becomes a "Spring Luffy out of Impel Down and toward Marineford" when the New Kama crew realize that Ace is already on his way to being transferred to Marineford for his execution. Because of the trap sprung by Hannyabal, Luffy and the others are stuck at Level 6 (the Inferno Hell), with no way to go back up.- This is when the most awesome ex-villains ever (CROCODILE) asks to be freed. This is also when one of the most awesome characters ever (JINBEI) asks to be freed. Imagine my glee when both of them stand side by side with Luffy to wreak righteously epic havoc against the monsters of Impel Down. Boy, did I miss the Sables attack. And the fish-man karate? Please, Jinbei, just join Luffy's crew later...- "They're unstoppable! And they're dressed to kill!" Yeah. That pretty much summed up the volume by the end of it.

    Losing the bulk of his regular cast seems to have been a way for Eiichiro Oda to tap new reserves of drive and inventiveness - the blizzard of new characters and ideas in the last few volumes of One Piece continues here, with Luffy's descent into the "hell" of the prison "Impel Down" finding unusual allies. The point of this extended arc - from the loss of his crew in Saboady to the looming pirate/marine war - seems to be to drive it home that Luffy's goodwill and determinating simply won't be enough to achieve his dreams. He needs to find a place within the wider forces of the series' world.The bizarre and marvelous highlight of Vol.55 is the introduction of New Kami Land, a paradise of genderfluid rebels led by the "miracle worker" (and Frank N Furter lookalike) Emporio Ivankov. After establishing how corrupt and vicious the ruling system is, this is our first proper look at its main opposition, and it's easy to cheer them on: Oda goes out of his way to make as plain and heartening a statement against prejudice as I've seen in a manga.

    3.5Simply amazing!! Things really heat up in this vol as Luffy continues barreling his way through Impel Down! Just the sheer determination and desperation Luffy has to save his brother - gdhskswkek. Gives me feels! (I am so much more emotional when it comes to blood family, like u have no idea *___*) And just the way Luffy kept trying to fight and live, despite the toxics he was exposed too!!! Omg, that Luffy!! That guy, I just can't even..!! It reminded me me of when Goku drank the Ultra Divine Water, though Luffy getting cured seemed way more paimful!Funny how despite being criminals and inmates, u can't help, but cheer for these guys xD But then again, it's not like the marines or world government are any better. I think they're worse actually!All in all, it's very hard to decide what to rate this vol. Again, it is neither a 3 or 4. There were very few dull moments. And the only real thing I didn't like how was that guy could change the genders of people. Such a weird and crazy power! But ultimately, at least he helped save Luffy!

    Die Zeit wird knapp für Ruffy und seine Freunde, die Hinrichtung von Ace wurde vorverlegt. Er macht die Beknntschaft von Ivankov, einer Transe mit unglaublicher Kraft. Ivankov ist eine alte Bekannte von Ruffys Vater und willigt natürlich sofort ein ihm zu helfen. Auch trifft er auf seinen alten Feind Sir Crocodile und auf den Mysteriösen Jinbei.Sie alle möchten ihm bei seinem Plan helfen, wobei jeder seine eigenen Beweggründe hat. Der Kampf wird nicht einfach sein und ich habe das Gefühl das er eine große Veränderung mit sich bringen wird. Die Spannung wird immer größer und natürlich auch die Verzweiflung. Man will und muss einfach den nächsten Manga lesen!!

    Continues the insanity of Impel Down prison but then, outta seriously nowhere (well, ok, the big hint was the volume's title having "okama" there, but it could have been referring to Mr 2 still!), did we just stumble into a Rocky Horror Picture Show at Level 5??Even more hell breaks loose! Just when thought the stakes had nowhere higher to go (someone please tell me the anime version of this had a musical number. An Okama that great deserves a full-on song & chorus girls presentation)PS: okama = transvestites & drag queens. Like really obnoxiously designed leotards & fishnet stockings kind. With an inch-thick makeup job

    With Luffy, Buggy, and Misters 3 & 2 on the run attempting to rescue Luffy's brother, the entirety of Impel Down is thrown into chaos. Can Luffy and his former adversaries help him reach Ace before Ace is sent to be executed?You'd think that having new characters around Luffy would bring out something new in his character, but, much like Doctor Who in some respects, Luffy is more a force of nature that brings out things in others. He merely is. That weakens this arc as his new sidekicks are nowhere near as sympathetic as the normal crew. Still, some fun stuff to be found in here and a little more of Luffy's family history is revealed.

    Luffy s'enfonce de plus en plus profondément dans l'enfer d'impel down, mais arrivera-t-il à temps au plus profond de la prison pour sauver son frère!Pas mon volume préféré, il reste très drôle quand même! Luffy est sans ses acolytes, mais il sait se trouver des gens sympa pour l'aider dans toutes les situations, n'est-ce pas? :-DUn bon moment de rigolade donc, comme d'habitude, même si les autres membres de la bande manque un peu...

    We kick off with Chapter 533:Level Four, The Blazing Hell.Luffy, Buggy, Mr.3, and Bon Clay have made their way down to Level 4. Warden Magellan makes preparations to confront the prison crew. This by far is going to be Luffy's most dangerous fight yet. Faithful Bon Clay sticks around to try to help out. How will this turn out? Just read and find out you scurvy pirates!Cheers and Happy Reading!

    Luffy makes his way through Impel Down to try to save Ace before it's too late. But he runs into some powerful devil fruit eaters and things don't go as planned.I really enjoyed this volume because it introduces some of the characters that you see later on. Also foreshadows the upcoming battle at Marinefold.

    A quick and fun read. I have really enjoyed the reoccurring themes, characters, and history. It's nice to not have a villain, moral, quest of the arc that only exists in the world when it's plot relevant.

    It's hard to get into this current storyline (Impel Down, the upcoming war with the Navy), when Luffy's crew is still missing! I hope it won't be too much longer before the crew is back--their interactions with one another were one of the better parts of the series!

    The main character is tough because Luffy still going to save his brother Ace. He didn't give there is many obsticle. My opinion is that the series is going to be great. Will Luffy save his brother Ace or he will fall.

    One nice thing about One Piece is that, since it doesn't kill off its villains, they can all show up again in a crazy prison break story.

    I love Bon Clay, I really really do. And Ivankov. And just everyone in this, honestly. I know what is coming up soon, and it is getting a little difficult to keep reading on.
