“ Usopp’s pirates, protecting Kaya, are chased by the hypnotist/pirate captain Django, while Klahadore, the false butler, faces down Luffy, Zolo, and Usopp. He thinks he has them where he wants them, but Zolo shows that the Meowban brothers are no match for him, although Usopp goes down, and cannot rise. No problem! Zolo will carry him, leaving Luffy to deal with Klahadore.
As Luffy and Klahadore battle, the pirate butler’s plan becomes apparent—annihilation for all, including his trusty crew. He wants to get rid of anyone who knows about his past. He reminds them of the circumstances that caused him to quit the sea, and his desire to take the riches from Kaya and go where no one will ever find him. Naturally, this does not sit well with the crew. Luffy manages to half-declaw Klahadore, even as Django is working on hypnotizing the stubborn Kaya to get her to sign the will in favor of her butler, but to no avail—she refuses to open her eyes.
Klahadore has had enough of Luffy and his insults, so he decides to let loose one final attack, although his crew begs him not to—his out-of-the-bag attack! Luffy doesn’t see the big deal. “He’s only slouching…”
Famous last words, as the attack begins. Can Luffy counter it?
In the aftermath of the battle, Usopp exhorts his little band of pirates, as well as Miss Kaya, to say nothing of what has happened, to allow the village to live in ignorance of what has occurred in order to maintain their peace of mind. And to let them keep on believing that he is a liar. It’s a hard thing to do, but they agree that it is in the village’s best interest, as well as Usopp’s. Kaya offers Luffy and his crew a ship—a caravel. Not the best, but a sight better than what they had. Of course, Kaya has ulterior motives, which quickly become apparent.
Having added a new crewmember, Luffy’s crew sets sail and raises their own standard for their new ship, the Merry Go. Luffy knows what needs to be done next—they need to find a ship’s cook, and quickly!
Can it be as easy as it sounds? With this bunch, not likely!
This is the last volume concerning the fight with Klahadore and his band and the saving of the village. Great fun, much bravery, and spectacular fights. Luffy gains a new crewmember, one who is worthy to be part of his crew. Very satisfactory, while leading into new territory with the search for the ship’s cook, and we meet some interesting people onboard the Baratie, an ocean-going restaurant.
With One Piece, the fun never stops. It’s a good read for all ages, and I highly recommend it!

“As one piece always do, this one also contained a person who helps weak person.
Anyway, Luffi makes mistake on aiming(??) the cannon, and destroys restaurant. To pay back, Luffi goes to the restaurant, however, he is so dumb, and asks the owner to let him work for a week instead of working a month. And a prisoner come to that restaurant, and the prisoner did not have any money. However, Sandi helps him and Luffi thinks he is a nice cook. ”
“Another Luffy book. Yaaaaaaaaaaay! Ussop joins and the cat butler is defeated.
Still addicted, and still loving the humor and fiction of it all.
Just realized that they are all online (but have some swearing there) so from now on I'm going to read them there.
627 chapters right now!!!

“This is the fifth book of the One Piece manga series. Now, Luffy and his crew team up with Usopp to battle out with the butler of Kaya who is actually the pirate captain, Kuro. With Kuro's intelectual tactis, Luffy and his crew are stumbled upon Kuro's strategy.
This book basically resolves the new conflict in the island with Kaya which I really hoped for. As the manga continues, more action takes place, and I believe that the action in this book is by far the most suspenseful battle so far. I recommend this book to everyone who likes comics and adventure”
“Puffy and his crew finally finish off the black cat pirates. They save Kaya, the sick, and rich girl. In return she gives Luffys crew a very nice, new ship. Also Usopp joins Luffy's crew. Next they sail off to the Baratie Ocean Going Restaurant, to find a cook. But will they find one that will join the crew? This book is a quick 189 pages.”Aaron P wrote this review Tuesday, November 9, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“This one took me forever to find. Usopp joins and Luffy glues his eyes to Sanji. Also, the Baratie arc includes some of the first art I ever saw from One Piece, so it holds a special place in my heart. ”Carly M wrote this review Thursday, December 31, 2009.
