What was it that made you first read/watch this series?

For me it was tuning in one tv and seeing the epic one piece rap๐Ÿ˜Ž I just had to watch more and I'm glad I did

For the manga I got tired of waiting for new episodes and wanted more so I searched around and found the manga around the dressrosa arc and that began my deep dive into other mangas

I was going to say the 4Kids dub...but I think I actually heard about One Piece before that was a thing.

I think I read about it in Wizard Magazine or Anime Insider or some other old anime magazine back in the day. I remember people really hyping up the music of the show in the Japanese version. That was probably when I first learned about it and figured it was something I'd be interested in checking out, someday.

I was aware of one piece since I was in grade school. I remember the opening song when it used to air on TV but it was too wacky for my taste with mid dub.

After I completed naruto and bleach , I knew one piece was part of big 3 but its slow pacing prevented me continuing initially. After buggy's arc ended I took a 2 year break and then started watching it again and became up to date.

Remember seeing a picture of luffy, zoro and nami on an anime themed magazine, but didn't watch the series after that.
I think an overdub of the "Freezing my nuts OFF!!!!!!!!" Scene from farce of the penguins with brook and naruto as the penguin and narrator in '10 got me.
And an nami centric AMV set to Material girl i saw in '11 that finally got me to watch episodes( I started on 102 randomly, then went back to watch the early and other sagas). I started the manga 5 months after that.

I was watching watch mojo and they had some one piece clips in some of their lists so I decided to check out the series.
Watch MOJO fell off

January 2001, I was 12. Someone bought the first volume of One Piece to a member of my family. I read the first chapter and cried twice : when Shanks lost his arm and when Shanks gave his hat to Luffy.

First manga ever read. Hooked instantly.

2010 maybe? I watched the fansubs with the "untranslated nakama". I watched the east blue saga, then got bored in little garden, and skipped all the way to water 7, saw enies lobby, got bored again, skipped to impel down/marineford, timeskip happened in the anime, got bored, dropped the series.

Came back around the end of Dressrosa, rewatched the series, started reading it in whole cake, still reading it now.
