Hey there everybody! ヾ(^∇^)


Welcome to the first entry in this series, and as you already saw in the thumbnail
we will be starting with a Classic:

https://www.playstation-gear.com/storage/app/uploads/public/5ae/186/440/5ae1864405455818399721.png

I know OP isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, story-wise and especially art-wise. I’ll say it doesn’t have one of
my favorite art styles either, but I love it for all the fun and colorful pieces. Especially the fun part is the one
I enjoy with these Artbooks! And even if the art style is a little weird, I still love most of the characters too.
Though I gotta say I never read the Manga and only watched the Anime until View spoilerHide spoilerjust before the bad bad thing with Ace happens, I think at least, lol According to MAL
I’m only at episode 405, that’s only around half-way through the released ones... (;へ:)
We’ll see if I’ll ever catch up, lol.

If you just started reading or watching OP, there will obviously be Spoilers ahead, so continue at
your own risk. I get spoilered all the time, but personally I don’t care. I’ll forget it anyways, as
my brain is already full with enough stuff, haha.

There are currently 8 Artbooks I know of. The 8th just came in last week. There's only 7 on the picture
as I didn't have it at the time of taking it and I'm too lazy to take a new one now. :P Tbh, I have no clue why
all the ones after the first 2 are named after random animals, but I guess it fits the crazyness
that is One Piece. If someone has an explanation for it I'd love to hear it of course. xD

Color Walk 1
The first of the Artbooks is actually quite boring compared to the rest. Probably because there still weren’t that
many characters to play around with. Or maybe Mr. Oda still didn’t know what he would do with the series exactly.
He probably still had to think about the world and characters, and what he wanted to do with it/them.

Color Walk 2
Vivi, or Bibi (it’s Vivi here), is introduced in this second book. As I really like her lots – the whole arc with her is
one of my faves – I quite like that addition to the team, even if it is just temporary. I also love Chopper, cutest
mascot ever, so this book is already a ton better than the first to me, lol.
This book also features the first picture of Ace! Ace is probably my fave OP character, so I hate to say this to
all other Ace lovers out there, he isn’t featured in a lot of pictures at all. It’s exactly 7 (yes, I counted!) throughout all 8 artbooks and on like 4 of them he is just a background character. It hurts my heart… (个_个)

Lion
This book continues with artworks from the Baroque Works/Alabasta stuff, with more pretty Vivi in them.
Nico Robin also joins the crew in some artworks. Tbh, don't care that much about her. I don't hate
her, but she's also not special to me. I would have prefered Vivi joining, but I know she is a princess
and can't, so... (╯︵╰,) There's also some Sky Island bits thrown in at the end.

Eagle
More fun artworks in this artbook! This one has some more Sky Island, but also some stuff of Water 7 or
whatever comes after that. Sorry, all those Arcs and/or Seasons confuse the hell out of me. And it's been
ages since I watched any One Piece, so I forgot a lot of stuff too. xD Seeing as I don't remember much after
Alabasta (even though I watched well past it) I won't be able to say much story-wise anymore, haha. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I only remember certain characters, lol. That also shows you that I'm collecting these for the art alone, and
not really because I'm such a big lover and knowledgable about One Piece. xD

Shark
Franky joins the Strawhats in this one. Never particularly liked his design or the character itself, so I'm eh
about this addition. The CP9 fights were fun, that much I remember! And I freaking love Kaku. Kaku is my man!
I would buy a Scale of him immediately! ٩(♡ε♡ )۶ Otherwise this artbook offers more fun and also beautiful
(the Sakura picture with Nami and Luffy for instance) artworks. Brook is also in it at the end. I like him
way more than Franky, and also more than Nico.

Gorilla
What to say about this one? Hmmm... x'D Well, Trafalgar Law appears for the first time. I don't know anything
about him, except how he looks, but everyone seems to love him, lol. I guess he also joins the Strawhats for
some time? Same way Vivi did??? As I said, I know nothing, lmao. This is the first artbook that has some
stickers in it! They are tiny, but still great. :)

Tyrannosaurus
TRex is the first artbook that takes place after the timeskip. Most of the Strawhats didn't really change that
much. Luffy, Zoro, Chopper, Sanji and Brook are basically the same, with just some outfit changes. Nami's long
hair is really cute and I like it! Robin's on the other hand... I don't know, not a fan. Usopp is pretty much
the same, he just got buffer. Love the hair, lol. Franky, oh boy, I didn't like his prior look a lot, but this is on
another level. It's just ugly. >.> Thank god he is more of a background character on most artworks,
which are just as fun and colorful as always.

Wolf
The first artwork in this book is already great. With the kid versions of them. I love Brook! And Nami is
super cute as well. This is the first book I really know ZERO of the new characters that appear.
I have no clue what is going on here. (゜-゜) Guess it's time to keep watching this, even though it's soooo
much. Ugh. Reading the Wiki just confuses me more.( ̄□ ̄;)
Anyways, as always, the art is super fun and cool, even if one doesn't know many characters. And like 80% of
the works only feature the Strawhats anyway, so that is very good, haha.

Conclusion, if you love One Piece you should definitely get these artbooks.
They are full of colorful, fun and cool artworks! \(*^¬^*)/
Even if you aren't that much into One Piece, the art in these is wonderful in my opinion. Sure, sometimes the
proportions of certain characters cough, females, and a cyborg is a bit over the top, but it doesn't diminish
my enjoyment. I just really love the crazyness, the ton of colors and fun the characters have on the artworks. (。→∀←。)


~* Figure Special *~

I thought, why not add in some figure talk as well, if I got any figures related to the series these articles are about.
There are a TON of One Piece figures around, but I only own one Scale and one Prize figure.

The Scale is from Ace, my fave fire boy. ITEM #221019
When I saw him I had to get him. His grinning face is precious. (๑♡⌓♡๑)

View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://i.postimg.cc/QCrxWyx8/7.png

https://i.postimg.cc/PqRCNywJ/8.png


The Prize is the Grandista Luffy. ITEM #638918
He looks amazing for a cheap Prize figure, so if you love Luffy go for him!
If this line gets an Ace too, be sure I'll be all over him... Maybe, lol.

I really want a Nami and Vivi figure still, but most of them are freaking bikini figures with ridiculous
boobage even for them, lol. Or I just don't like the clothes they are wearing.
View spoilerHide spoilerThis Nami is really cute though and I just might get her too. ITEM #753870 I like this one ITEM #599695 too,
but the tongue... God damnit! xD This one is great too, but I prefer the bonus face and for that
you have to buy some other figure (I don't want), which sucks. Another one I quite like, even with little to
no clothes on, is this one. ITEM #413247 She is just a cutie. ^^ After looking at her longer, I also like this one. ITEM #576505

Vivi has a few nice ones, but I just can't bring myself to get one.
ITEM #670059 She looks really cool and beautiful at the same time here. I'd jump at this one ITEM #93001
but again, the weird-ass tongue mouth ruins it. ITEM #703543 A bikini figure, but it is a classy and beautiful one!
I prefer the blue version of the Wedding one. ITEM #695198 Really pretty.

At the end of the day I think I'm just not enough into One Piece to get figures of them. Both, Ace and Luffy
were kinda spontaneous purchases too. If I would have sat down and thought about it longer I never would have
gotten them. xD But having them now I can't bring myself to sell them, even though they don't fit into my
collection at all. Especially Ace, my boy. <3


With that we reached the end of the first Artbook Collection Blog. It took a while to get it done.
Mostly because of real life, you know how it is. I hope I can finish the next one faster. Like, everything
is planned out for at least 20 of these blogs - no joke! xD - but taking the pictures and writing all of this
takes a lot of time, with work and stuff happening.

Well, I'll try my best at least. Hope at least someone enjoys these posts. Maybe someone even will go and
buy these books now! That would be cool, to help someone decide to get some of these. ^^

See you in my next blog post! (ゝω・)ノ

Senbei (28 dias atrás) #42176986Haha I totally get what you mean by getting back into it. I haven't watched One Piece in forever just because of the declining and frankly horrible anime quality. I probably have over 150 episodes myself to catch up on before I'm "up to date" and getting the strength to tackle that mountain is hard! But once you get going it's a lot easier to get in to, and you could always do it a chunk at a time?
Also haha you don't need to be a huge fan to buy a figure! There's no rule for it anyways. And also look at me, I'm a self-proclaimed die-hard One Piece fan and being a fan for over a decade, I've got a grand total of 2 One Piece figures (one because it was cheap, like 4000 yen and the other because I actually wanted him)! Just buy what you like~

Yes, that's usually how it is. Just have to start watching, then it will go on its own. xD

And yes, I know. I have a lot of figures I don't know the source material at all, lol. OPs style is just not 100% my cup of tea, so the figure really has to be perfect for me to buy it. I guess Prize figures are the way to go in this case, lol. But I like Prizes, they look great too.

Solarstormflare (1 mês atrás) #42094030Nice showcase! I think i gave up around ten episodes into one piece haha, but i can see why people like it :)
Thanks. ;3 Well, I can also see why people wouldn't be into it, haha.

Senbei (29 dias atrás) #42104902Honestly, as a die-hard fan of One Piece with One Piece being my ultimate favourite series of all time, I've honestly tried so, so, so hard to resist these Colour Walks but damn! Now I have to pick them up!!!
Colour pages are my favourite!
Great post OP! And you should also get back to One Piece! One Piece literally only gets better and better from Water 7/ Enies Lobby!
Also spoiler! View spoilerHide spoilerKaku comes back to make a small appearance in the manga! We'll see him for sure again in the series

Thanks! :D
If you really love One Piece so much you should try to get these. They aren't really expensive either. I paid 20€ per book. And we'll see. I want to watch more of it, but I have sooooo many Anime on my Watchlist, ugh. It's so hard. xD I also have to be in the right mood and I'm not in the mood often, lol.

Nuss (29 dias atrás) #42129547they all look like they're having so much fun and i especially love the illustrations with vivi! i might have to buy the first 3 books, they're lovely!
And when reading your comments all sounded so similar! haha
i also watched one piece till the marine arc mess (even a bit further maybe?) and then kinda.. stopped i guess.. and now there's just.. so much....
to stay figure related, i bought this particular nami ITEM #54176 and vivi ITEM #54175 because i really loved the whole arc with vivi (and i used to love their clothes.. it's so nostalgic now)
anyway! did you know there's a scale of Kaku? ITEM #186854
(sorry for rambling haha)
i'm so happy you're doing this series! i love artbooks and this was a really fun read so i'm eagerly awaiting your next blogs!

Oh, so we are quite similar in One Piece regards! xD
Yeah, the whole Vivi arc is amazing. I really enjoyed that one a lot as well. The most probably, just like you, lol. All the fun these artworks have in them is the best thing about the books. As I mentioned before, they aren't expensive, so go for them if you can find them. :3 I actually know about that Kaku figure, but it's old and probably costs a fortune, lol. And as I said in the article, I'm probably not enough into OP to really buy many figures of it. Only if I really, really like it.
I'm really glad that you are enjoying it. I hope I can deliver more artbook goodness soon. :)
