Along with 'Naruto' and 'Bleach', 'One Piece' is one of the 'Big Three' Shonen series and has been going strong for more than fifteen years. In Japan, 'One Piece' is an incredibly popular with both the anime and manga versions regally topping the sales charts. Despite this, the series wasn't very well liked for a long time in the West, mostly due to the infamously terrible version put together by the original licence holders 4Kids Entertainment. Now FUNimation has the licence they are redoing the series far more faithfully to the original Japanese version without the edits to remove violence and other things 4Kids thought inappropriate for children.
This first four disc collection of the series includes the first twenty-six episodes of the series that takes the show from the beginning to around half way through the Baratie arc. Despite these episodes being roughly fifteen years old now the animation is still reasonably good. One of the things I have always thought about 'One Piece' is that the beginning of the series is probably weakest part of the series and it isn't until the Baratie and Arlong Park arcs that the show begins to get good but even with this, these episodes are still entertaining enough for most anime fans to enjoy.
Both the original Japanese and the English versions are included in this collection and while the English version is well done, I much prefer the original Japanese (this could be more to do with familiarity with the original version due to having watched hundreds of the Japanese episodes over the years). Of the English dub there are some I do like and some I don't. Zoro, Sanji, Shanks, Buggy and Mihawk all have very good voice but I am not much of a fan of Usopp's voice. The main problem I have with the English version is that they have dubbed the opening song 'We Are'. While this usually wouldn't bother me, 'We Are' is one of my all-time favourite anime openings and the dub version is nowhere near as good.
The collection includes a couple of cast commentaries as well as the usual textless opening and closing songs as extras.
'One Piece' is a very entertaining series with a nice mixture of action, comedy and emotion. Normally I would give this first collection a full five stars but seeing as I know the series only gets even better from here on I will have to give it four and a half stars.
