Legend has it that the first to find Gol D. Roger's treasure will take his place as king of the pirates, Luffy's most ambitious goal. From heart thrilling adventures, to sad tales of those boarding our journey, One Piece takes viewer through a whirlwind of emotions while strolling through the world in search of what could be Luffy's ticket to making his dream come true. Watch Luffy, who is one of the best anime protagonists of all time, as he takes on some of his strongest foes yet, from regular marine troops and pirates, to some of the strongest—known as the Admirals and Four Emperors, respectively. Of course, in between that Luffy will prove to show that he's no pushover by fighting others with respectively strong titles like the Seven Warlords of the Sea and a secret government assassination group known as CP0.
The One Piece world doesn't come without its own set of political strifes either. Between diplomatic events such as choosing a tyrant ruler for a country to usurping the throne via a revolution by the people, we don't just see physical fights but ones of politics as well. One Piece has an assortment of political issues it tackles, some of the biggest being the discrimination towards sea folk—or 'Fishmen'—that inhabit the world's oceans, the poor and middle class being controlled by a smaller upper class called the Celestial Dragons who act as gods, and a brave army that stands up to them, fighting for the world's rights and to free themselves from that control, the Revolutionary Army. Aside from Luffy's adventure, watching him search for his biggest treasure and meet new friends along the way, we witness a wicked side to society that's more than just about pirates and marines, one about the people's freedom and those trying to strip them away. The political side of One Piece begs too many questions from the viewers that you'll find yourself asking even 1000+ episodes in; what is the will of D? Who are the Celestial Dragons? And what is it that those at the top seek to gain by completely controlling the world diplomatically?
All over the One Piece world are special fruits called “devil fruits” full of mystery. Granting the first user to take a bite out of it unimaginable power, we see how Luffy and his crew use devil fruits and other powers introduced later into the series such as “Haki”to fight their enemies. Devil fruits range from giving the user elemental powers, transformation powers, or even much more specific and random powers, one example being Luffy’s fruit. Luffy obtained the “gum-gum” devil fruit prior to his journey as a child, allowing him to have the properties of rubber but with a big drawback. The irony of devil fruits is that they do not allow you to swim! Luffy’s life through water is much more perilous due to the fact that he is unable to swim and any form of sea water renders him unable to battle. How will he overcome this hurdle? Where did devil fruits come from and what's their relationship with the sea? All of these questions will be answered in due time watching Luffy grow with his powers and understand more about the origins of himself and his devil fruit.
Between humans, Fishmen, giants, people who live in the sky, to even robots, there's a plethora of races that give rise to so many fun encounters with the Straw Hat Pirates. They come in all forms of shapes and sizes, the Longarm tribe and Longleg tribe being some very self explanatory examples, the only thing limiting the races and designs is Oda’s imagination. Of course what kind of wacky adventure doesn't come with its fair share of amazing settings; watch the crew stroll through a multitude of islands ranging from one filled with toys as people, one made of half lava half fire, one made almost entirely of food, an island sized elephants walking along the ocean (its legs reaching the ocean floor), and others like islands filled with samurai or Amazonian people. That's only some of the hundreds of islands Luffy and his crew traverse through.
