I haven't seen any shounen yet that I've really enjoyed, but that's probably because I haven't been watching the right shounen.
So the question is: One Piece, anime or manga? GTO, anime or manga?
Also which should I start to read/watch first?
>>So the question is: One Piece, anime or manga?
Why should I answer this? Tomorrow another thread will pop up asking the same question no matter what I do.
One Piece manga GTO both
As for which first, They're both good. Mostly up to you, as they're both quite lengthy. I'd suggest One Piece and then when you wait for the weekly Jumps, go read GTO.
(Honorable mentions for the anime = GTO's aint bad, One Piece has really good Voice acting. + Funidub.)
Both for GTO really? Seems kind of redundant.
Also which should I do first?
Trust me, once you've finished with GTO, you won't mind seeing it in a different medium. He's just pure awesome. And pretty much all of /a/ agrees.
And Hell, while you're at it, you might want to check out the Live Action GTO. (Which is also quite good.)
Ok I'll go read One Piece.
Now the question is should I go and take the bus over to B&N and read it there. Or should I download scanlations (and if scanlation which of the 9001 groups should I choose from?)
GTO is awesome. Doesn't really matter if you see the anime first. Once that's over you start wanting more GTO, which is where the manga comes in.

It's not. I suggest you watch the live action too, it's grate. I saw it before I read the manga though, so I might be a bit biased.
