Author's NotesEdit

Author's Notes
Volume 040 Intro Image

Goats became famous for eating paper. They deliciously eat anything that's paper, as if to say "Oh, this is totally edible". They eventually had to put up signs at the zoo. "Please do not feed the goats paper". In reality, eating paper that has synthetic fibers in it will actually get you sick. Goat... you... you... What are you, a rising comedian artiste?

(Translator's note: In Japan, young comedian artistes, or "芸人-Geinin", will stereotypically do just about anything with a smile on their faces [usually on variety shows, etc.] in order to get a job or achieve fame.)

Zoro's basic three-sword attack. All three blades slash you at once!!
