I personally think its the best shonen series made. Been following it for several years and I still can't get enough of it. Keep reading it, Arabasta is probably the turning point for the series and where it started gaining mass popularity. And as some pointed out, Skypea is probably the best saga in the series with Enies Lobby/Water 7 coming in to a close tie. It's an amazing and well written series where the author actually cares about maintain the integrity of the story.
