“If you don’t risk your life, you can’t create a future. Right?


“Forgetting is like a wound. The wound may heal but it has already left a scar.”

“Being alone is more painful than getting hurt.”

Roronoa Zoro:

“A wound that’d make an ordinary man unconscious… I won’t lose to it. A wound that would kill an ordinary person… I won’t lose to it! To face one who is extraordinary, Hawk Eyes… I can’t allow myself to be ordinary!”

“Bring on the hardship. It’s preferred in a path of carnage.”

“When the world shoves you around, you just gotta stand up and shove back. It’s not like somebody’s gonna save you if you start babbling excuses.”

“You need to accept the fact that you’re not the best and have all the will to strive to be better than anyone you face.”

“What do you know of death?!! Have you ever died?!! You think death will preserve your cause forever?!! Ridiculous!! Death leaves nothing behind!! Once a person passes on, nothing remains but dead bones!! If there is one thing I can’t stand, it is a person with no respect for life!!”

“No matter how deep the night, it always turns to day, eventually.”


“When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom!? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.”

Jaguar D. Saul

“There is no such thing as being born into the world to be alone.”


“Listen up… You can pour drinks on me, you can throw food at me… You can even spit on me. I’ll just laugh that stuff off. But… Good reason or not… Nobody hurts a friend of mine!!!”

“By experiencing both, victory and defeat, running away and shedding tears, a man will become a man.”


“No matter what happens, don’t be sorry you were born, don’t forget to smile in any situation. As long as you’re alive there will be better things later…and there will be many.”

One Piece Arc Review: Little Garden

The Little Garden arc is sort of a forgotten arc in the One Piece manga.

It comes just after the Straw Hats leave Whiskey Peak, on their regular island to island hop, beating tyrants and saving the oppressed.

The crew meets two giants, Dorry and Broggy and the first giants we get to meet, and they learn of the duel the two giants are fighting.

They are fighting eachother for honour, and neither side is willing to give up the duel, in respect of themselves and eachother.

Of course, watching two giants fight eachother is much too easy, so Baroque Works comes back into the mix, causing some mischief by interruption the duel.

The Strawhats try and fight back, eventually beating the Baroque Works agents, and restoring the honour of the two giants, who help the crew escape the island before continuing their duel.

There’s honestly not much to say about this arc.

I have a hunch that Dorry and Broggy will be important later on in the story, for the final battle, but they don’t really do much since their introduction.

They are brought up later on when Luffy and crew meet one of the giants that was a part of their crew, but it’s sort of a flashback moment more than advancing the plot at all.

I’m not choosing to bring up next to nothing about this arc because I think its bad, there’s honestly just not much to say about it.

I think the biggest thing that this arc brings is a connection to future arcs. Dorry and Broggy get brought up in the Water 7 arc, and later when Doflamingo holds the fighting tournament.

Otherwise they are basically unimportant.

Mr 3 is introduced in this arc, with his trusty partner Miss Goldenweek. We don’t see Miss Goldenweek after her defeat in this arc, but Mr. 3 comes back.

He is a key player in the future Marineford War, and teams up with Buggy when he becomes a Warlord.

We don’t get a new crew member, we don’t defeat any important bad guys, and we don’t get introduced to anyone immediately important.

I’d probably throw Little Garden on the lower end of the overall arc ranking, only because it is sort of forgettable. If it was built on more, having more characters and a deeper plot, then yeah it would probably be much higher up.

One thing we do get from the arc, one very small thing, is the little rivalry between Sanji and Zoro. It’s not my favourite aspect of the manga, but it does make some sense and it has provided a moment or two of entertainment.
