I've seen the 1st 3 or 4 episodes... I have 30 and im d/l the 2nd season(yea, a friend asked me to d/l)... question is, do I need to have a pirate fetish? Because I've heard great things about this series... BUT: -I dont dig pirates that much. -I really dont like the visual style,even the author said his art sucks(read this somewhere). -I had to watch the episodes 2 times because I fell asleep the 1st time watching them. -Why is Luffy so strong already? compared to Naruto or even Ichigo(who borders on the "FUmaincharacter!" strong), who were were pretty weak or dumb in the beginning, Luffy seems too strong... I dont identify with that. -that gomu gomu phrase gets old by the 2nd time you get to hear it, will it be like this every episode? -Does this series have fights or anything? I mean, I cant imagine Luffy fighting and losing after seeing him defelct bullets and beat that axe guy, so any future fight will be, boring to say the least. Please recommend good episodes, or tell me why is this series good, I really want to give it a chance.
