"Great show, great boxset, this is where it really gets goin' folks.
If you were disappointed with the lack of character development in the first box set, give this one a shot, because you are going to be learning a lot more about the characters and you will definitely start to care about them more. A new character will be introduced to the show who is an absolute riot(hes a perv to the max and his antics when he is around nami, or any woman in general will make you die laughing.) The straw hats will obtain a ship and they will actually start to look like a pirate crew. This is where the show really takes off and the addiction will start to set in(I was hooked after episode 15). Great times and great laughs await.
I always recommend watching japanese instead of english and this anime is no different, but I have to say as far as dubs go, its pretty elite. When I watch it with my girlfriend we watch it in english because she has trouble reading subtitles and I was very pleasantly surprised. So for this one its either or, but the japanese voice acting is hollywood calibre/equivalent.
Basically pick this up, fans of good anime won't be disappointed."
Why so much?

"First off, One Piece is one of my favorite anime series of all time. These next episodes truly showcase why One Piece is so wonderful. From the tragic flashbacks that make you cry like a baby to the heart-warming scenes of compassion from the characters who, unlike real pirates, want to help even the most lowly of strangers.
As usual, the Japanese voice acting is amazing. I swore I would never watch One Piece's dub....but now I find myself watching only the dub. Luffy's voice does take getting use to, especially if you love his Japanese voice. However, after a few episodes you are VERY grateful that he doesn't sound like 4kids' Luffy (who sounded like a deranged clown) anymore. So basically both language tracks are amazing and well-acted. In fact, I found myself more emotional when I watched the series in English instead of the Japanese language where I have to read subs and look at the show at the same time.
However, my biggest gripe is how Funimation is releasing the series. Why do we have to fork out $50 for 13/14 episodes?? You can buy an entire 26 episode anime series for way less than that. It doesn't help that One Piece's DVD box is made out of cheap cardboardish materials and the only extras on the set are trailers, credit-less openings and endings, and a commentary track or two. Wow. Thanks.
Definitely buy these DVDs..but if you're short on cash wait a month or two for the price to go down. Or find some coupons and buy it online like I do."
FUNimation does it again!

"Another great release from FUNimation. This set contains episodes 14-26 and continues where the end of Season One: First Voyage left off. In this set, we're introduced to the trash-talking, perverted cook Sanji and the man that is Zoro's biggest obstacle in becoming the greatest swordsman, Dracule Mihawk. We also take a look at Usopp, Zoro and Sanji's childhood and see what made them into the men they are today. Like I said in my Season One: First Voyage review, this series is definately overlooked by many anime fans and this is definately worth getting."
