Why The Arlong Park Sequence In ‘One Piece’ Is The Greatest Comic Book Fight Scene Of All Time [Opinion]

One Piece by Echiro Oda

Listen, I realize that I'm a little late to the party when it comes to Echiro Oda's One Piece. It's literally the best-selling manga of all time, but I've only just gotten into it over the past few months, on the recommendation of former CA writer David Brothers. I was hooked right away -- the book's signature mix of action, character, slapstick comedy and insanely over-the-top violence was fantastic right from the start, blending in a way that I find completely irresistible.

Then I got to volume 10, and the characters arrived in Arlong Park for a single fight scene that literally lasted for over 250 pages. And as someone who loves fight comics, I can say pretty confidently that it is quite possibly the best fight scene I have ever seen in comics. Not in manga, in all of comics. And believe me, I've seen a lot of 'em.

‘One Piece’ And ‘Dragon Ball Z’ Throw Down In Real Life For The Best Video Game Ad Ever

Goku vs. Monkey D. Luffy art installation for J-Stars Victory Vs.

Apologies to anyone in marketing who might be reading this, but video game ads don't usually do much to get me excited. I think the last one that really made an impact was the one for Saints Row IV where they misspelled the name of the game and then went back to correct it all while blaring dubstep, and showing you explosions, but even that wasn't exactly "memorable," you know?

Now imagine that you're heading over to the department store, thinking about picking up a new video game, and you round the corner to see Goku from Dragon Ball Z and Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece in the middle of a life-sized brawl that has shattered the street, snapped a lamppost and flipped a car. Well, if you're heading to the Shibuya Parco store in Tokyo, that's exactly what you'll see, as an awesome promo for the upcoming J-Stars Victory Vs. And it is awesome.

7-11 Rolls Out ‘One Piece’ Gum Gum Fruit Pastries In Japan

One Piece Devil Fruit Bun Main 7-11
7-11

In the pirate-filled world of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga and anime series, gulping down a piece of the legendary Devil Fruit grants eaters phenomenal powers -- an ultra-stretchy body, becoming a living skeleton, generating limitless appendages out of thin air --- but strips them of the ability to swim. So fans will probably be pleased to discover 7-11 stores in Japan are selling a sweet bun version of OP star Luffy's Gum Gum Fruit filled with whipped cream and blueberry jam with none of the potentially career-ending side effects.
