A Long History

(1992), God's Present for the Future (1993), Ikki Yako (1993), Monsters (1994), Romance Dawn (two versions in 1996), Cross Epoc (2007) which is a crossover between One Piece and Dragon Ball with Akira Toriyama, and Taste of the Devil Fruit (2011) which is a crossover between One Piece and Toriko with Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro

One Piece hit the small screen as an anime produced by Toei Animation on October 20, 1999, on Fuji TV in Japan. As of September 24, 2023, One Piece has aired 1,077 episodes and is in its twentieth season.

Set Sail!  

600x500 blog image.jpg

The world of One Piece is covered with vast oceans and a long strip of land that wraps the globe. The vast ocean is called the Blue Sea and is split into quarters: the East Blue, North Blue, North Blue, and South Blue. 

The largest landmass and only continent is the Red Line, named for the reddish mineral that makes up the ring-like continent. It is high enough above sea level that it is impassable aside from a few known routes. 

In addition to the Red Line, there are many islands that dot the seas where many different kinds of people and creatures live. 

Also ringing the world is the Grand Line and Calm Belt that outlines the Grand Line on either side. The Calm Belt is difficult to cross because no wind blows and there are no currents to move sailing ships. It is also the nesting grounds for Sea Kings, commonly carnivorous giant eel-like creatures—though their appearances can vary greatly. 

The Grand Line is a uniquely dangerous area where normal compasses don't work. It is said that the infamous treasure of Gol D. Roger, the One Piece, is hidden somewhere on the Grand Line. Due to that, many pirates seeking adventure and riches travel to and along the Grand Line, searching for that treasure. 

My pirates... including the series' main characters.  

Captain and Crew 

Monkey D Luffy

Monkey D. Luffy 

"I'm Monkey D. Luffy and I'm gonna be King of the Pirates!"

Monkey D. Luffy is a carefree, goofy, and confident young man who—at the start of the series—wants to become a pirate captain, gather up a crew, seek out the infamous treasure of the pirate Gol D. Roger, the One Piece, and become King of the Pirates. Luffy sees being a pirate as being free, and the Pirate King as having the most freedom on the sea.

As a boy, he looked up to a pirate captain called Shanks, the man who gave him his treasured straw hat. Around the same time, Luffy ate the Devil Fruit Gomu Gomu no Mi (gomu meaning "rubber"), called the Gum-Gum Fruit in English, which gave him a rubber-like body and took away his ability to swim in the ocean. After parting ways with Shanks, Luffy promised Shanks he'd get a great pirate crew and become a pirate himself. 

Roronoa Zoro

Roronoa "Pirate Hunter" Zoro 

"I'll become the strongest swordsman in the world!" 

Roronoa Zoro is introduced as an infamous bounty hunter and swordfighter. At first, he wasn't too keen on joining Luffy's crew—which had zero members at the time—but when Luffy warned him that a dishonorable Marine planned on executing him, Zoro agreed to join Luffy. 

Zoro's dream is to become the World's Strongest Swordsman. Luffy finds that to be agreeable and figures the man who will become King of the Pirates ought to have the World's Strongest Swordsman at his side. 

Unfortunately for both of them, they have a terrible sense of direction. So, they'd need a navigator on their crew.


"Cat Burglar" Nami 

"I'll have mapped out the entire world!"

 When we first meet Nami, she is a clever thief who steals from pirates, amassing as much money—Berries—as she can. She has a particular hatred for pirates at the start, including Luffy. After seeing Luffy's compassion for a small dog in a destroyed village, her opinion of him at least becomes more favorable. 

Nami joins Luffy's crew as their much-needed navigator and is a source of common sense which Luffy and Zoro occasionally lack. She is nimble which helps in her thieving and fights with retractable bo staffs. 



"I'll be brave!"

Usopp is a Pinocchio-like character at the start, telling lies and stories to bring excitement to his village and his friends' lives, though it annoys many of the residents of Syrup Village. He claims to be "Captain" Usopp of the Usopp Pirates, a group comprised of himself and three village kids. 

Luffy connects with Usopp quickly once he realizes that Usopp is the son of Yasopp, a sharpshooter on Shank's crew Luffy knew as a boy. Usopp joins Luffy's crew with a desire to be braver like his great pirate father. His fighting tool of choice is a slingshot. 



"I'll find the All Blue!" 

Luffy and his growing crew meet Sanji while he is working as a chef at Baratie, an ocean-going restaurant run by Chef Zeff in the East Blue. A lover of women and a keen fighter with his kicks, Sanji has a soft spot for those who are hungry. 

Sanji joins Luffy's crew as his ship's cook, making him one of Luffy's favorite crew members as he can feed his voracious appetite. His dream is to find the All Blue, a chef's paradise with all manner of sea-life in a place where the East Blue, North Blue, West Blue, and South Blue meet. 

One Piece Volumes 1-20

**This list includes a brief summary of the events in each book. Here there be spoilers, so read the later summaries at your own risk. 


One Piece, Volume 1: Romance Dawn by Eiichiro Oda

As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer "Red-Haired" Shanks. But his life changed when Luffy accidentally ate the Gum-Gum Devil Fruit and gained the power to stretch like rubber... at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, still vowing to become the king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his adventure... one guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary "One Piece," said to be the greatest treasure in the world...


One Piece, Volume 2: Buggy the Clown  by Eiichiro Oda

As a kid, Monkey D. Luffy vowed to become King of the Pirates and find the legendary treasure called the "One Piece." The enchanted Gum-Gum Fruit has given Luffy the power to stretch like rubber—and his new crewmate, the infamous pirate hunter Roronoa Zolo, strikes fear into the hearts of other buccaneers! But what chance does one rubber guy stand against Nami, a thief so tough she specializes in robbing pirates... or Captain Buggy, a fiendish pirate lord whose weird, clownish appearance conceals even weirder powers? It's pirate vs. pirate in the second swashbuckling volume of One Piece!


One Piece, Volume 3: Don't Get Fooled Again  by Eiichiro Oda

Sure, lots of people say they want to be the King of the Pirates, but how many have the guts to do what it takes? When Monkey D. Luffy first set out to sea in a leaky rowboat, he had no idea what might lie over the horizon. Now he's got a crew—sort of—in the form of swordsman Roronoa Zolo and treasure-hunting thief Nami. If he wants to prove himself on the high seas, Luffy will have to defeat the weird pirate lord Buggy the Clown. He'll have to find a map to the Grand Line, the sea route where the toughest pirates sail. And he'll have to face the Dread Captain Usopp, who claims to be a notorious pirate captain... but frankly, Usopp says a lot of things...


One Piece, Volume 4: The Black Cat Pirates  by Eiichiro Oda

Captain Kuro of the Black Cat Pirates was the most feared evil genius on the high seas...until he vanished. Most people believe he's dead, but only his crew knows the truth: Captain Kuro has been lying low in a small seaside village, posing as a mild-mannered butler until the time for pillage is just right. Now that time has come, and the ruthless Black Cat Pirates are about to attack...

Unless, of course, Monkey D.Luffy can stop them! All Luffy has on his side are his sword-wielding first mate, Zolo; his thieving navigator, Nami; Usopp, a local kid with a knack for telling lies; and his own bizarre rubber-limbed powers. If these four amateur pirates want to stop the entire Black Cat crew, they'll have to come up with a pretty slick plan...


One Piece, Volume 5: For Whom the Bell Tolls  by Eiichiro Oda

Once upon a time, Usopp was just a local boy with a talent for tall tales. Everyone in his little seaside village knew him as the joker who claimed to be a pirate captain and woke people up in the mornings by shouting "Pirates are coming!" But then real pirates landed on the beach…

Now Usopp's village is under attack by the Black Cat Pirates, one of the most legendary and feared crews on the high seas. And three young would-be pirates have joined him in defending the village: Nami the thief, Zolo the swordsman, and Luffy, the straw-hatted wannabe pirate with incredible rubber powers. Usopp is about to find out how an imaginary pirate stands up to the real thing… and what it means to be a real pirate. His neighbors would never believe it in a million years...


One Piece, Volume 6: The Oath  by Eiichiro Oda

Luffy's pirates thought they were just stopping in for a quick bite...but now Luffy's been made a busboy on Baratie, the oceangoing restaurant, and it turns out some of the worst-mannered pirates on the Grand Line are just dying for a meal.

Always one to look on the bright side, Luffy sets his sights on Sanji, the smart-talking, skirt-chasing assistant chef on the Baratie, as the Going Merry's new cook. But it'll take more than a vicious pirate battle and a little sweet talking from Nami to convince him to leave the Baratie and join Luffy's team. His oath to feed any and all pirates in need keeps getting in the way. The question is: what do you do when the very same pirates you just fed now want to serve you up for dinner?


One Piece, Volume 7: The Crap-Geezer  by Eiichiro Oda

Don Krieg's evil pirate armada attempts to hijack the oceangoing restaurant Baratie, but the pirate cooks put up a fierce resistance until Krieg reveals one of the greatest secret weapons in his arsenal—Invincible Pearl! When sous chef Sanji steps into the fray, it turns out that he and Chef Zeff have some unfinished business concerning the loss of the latter's leg!

Either way, unfortunately for Luffy, it turns out that Don Krieg harbors an even deadlier weapon—Gin, the very man whose life Sanji once saved with a square meal!

Meanwhile, Nami has sailed off on the Going Merry with treasure in tow, and she's headed to Arlong Park, home of creepy Captain Arlong and his Fish-Man Pirates.

Staff Reviews

Charissa: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I only got into One Piece after watching some of the Netflix live-action series and my partner recommended I watch the anime for greater context for each episode. The series is a lot of fun, even if I'm not terribly far into it yet. 

Brad: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

If you haven’t taken the time to dive into the One Piece world yet, you need to make the time. This series has everything you could want: extensive volumes of manga, exciting and visually stimulating anime, and now a live-action series on Netflix. The main character Monkey D. Luffy is a strong hero figure, even though he’s a pirate. Luffy is on a journey to build his crew of Straw Hat Pirates, fight OP enemies, and explore the Grand Line in search of the fabled treasure known as the One Piece. Not a series for children, but great for teens and adults. Blood, foul language, and sexual content could be a turnoff for some, but the comradery of the Straw Hat Pirates and a creative story arc make this series one not to be overlooked.
