It’s the middle of the month, so you know what that means: time for more” One Piece Club,” our ongoing catch-up of “One Piece!” In this episode we discuss the first half of the Alabasta arc (chapters 155-180). This is the largest arc yet, but in terms of size it pales in comparison to some of the later arcs (ahem, Dressrosa). We particularly discuss the introduction of two great characters, Crocodile and Mr. 2 Bon Clay, whether or not Sanji is actually cool, and overall the massive leap in quality this arc represents. Next month we finish off the arc, covering chapters 181-217. If you want to tweet through it with us, be sure to use the #OnePieceClub hashtag! Emily and Walt will be back in a couple weeks to talk about June 2020’s Shonen Jump offerings.
