It is more of a partial joke than anything else. Bushido is the code of conduct for a Samurai's life/duty (loosely translated as "Way of the Warrior"). Vivi calls Zoro "Bushido-san" as both a joke that he is a pirate/bounty hunter (which is as far from the ways of Bushido as one can get), but also due to the fact that he was one who saved her from the Mr. 5/ Miss Valentines Day duo, effectively enacting Bushido principles. Specifically, Zoro represents the Bushido way (frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery and honour unto death) while at the same time seemingly being the exact opposite (at least in appearance) of the traditional notions of Bushido. So, it is a slight, but cute, joke.

Check out this site for the low-down on Bushido.

I've been wondering who this Dadan the mayor of Luffy's hometown mentioned. Could Dadan be a mistranslation of Dragon?

No, Dadan is Dadan. It's not a mistranslation.
As to who it is, it hasn't been revealed yet.

Subbed? What are you talking about, no-one subs One Piece, that would be illegal (ex-ney on the ubbers-sey). That being said, the Manga spells the name as Dadan (see Chapter 440), which could be Dragon's real name or some completely new person (possibly Luffy's Mom?).

I think you mean Apis from the first filler arc? That would be episode 54.

Well, the series is licensed in America (so not only is against forum policy to ask for licensed anime it is also against the law...), so I assume you are asking where you can buy and or rent the dvds. Sadly enough, the uncut, unedited dvds are only just now being released in America (here is a review of the first DVD set), so you are going to have to wait a few months to see the Apis filler arc.

Volume 18 has been released, Volume 19 is due for release on the 7th October.

Why don't you just use a site (like Amazon) to find out what the release dates are?

Volume 18 was literally just released (in America) a few weeks ago (June 2, 2008...I think), and Volume 17 has been out for awhile. But, Volume 19 will not be released until October . Check Amazon if you can not find it at a local Borders/Barnes and Nobel.

edit: xris got to it before me. Thank you xris .

Just go to wikipedia.org, type in One Piece, and you will have your answer.

...I did it for you. The bar of text on the right-hand side of the page details the exact number of volumes, and episodes currently released.

Well, i'm new here ... [but Gold Roger is my fav hero for years] there was something i need to ask... althought its a bit of prediction, but... If Admirals is near demi-godly strong... how about 'Buddha' sengoku, or the greatest and the highest 'Gorousei'. yeah... gorousei, these grandpas seems stronger than their marines. My question is... Will these oldman become the Last Bosses for Luffy n friends? if so... anyone who could recognize their mysterious power?

why is there such a gap and what is causing the gap in power between the Yonkou and the marines and shichibukai while some where rivals like shanks and mihawk, moria and kaidou. the yonkou are heavily outnumbered in really powerfull guys. i mean the first mate of gol d roger will probably have a big time defeating kizaru. can anyone explane it ?

i have another question. why can you sometime hit a logia like when luffy rushed into smoker in the restaurant with ace. smoker is a logia but he was hit by a physical 'attack'.

i hope someone could explane it to me.

ps sorry for the probably bad english

Spoiler for slight manga spoilers:


As to your second question, if a Logia user is caught unaware (i.e. if they are hit from behind or with a sneak attack) or if they are unconscious, then they can not become intangible (i.e. they can not turn their bodies into their Elemental parts (Smoke, Fire, Ice, etc)). So, a Logia user can be hit with a physical attack.
