A basic overview of the manga One Piece:

Wealth, power, and prestige. Gold Roger, King of the Pirates, was the one who battled for all of this. His last words upon execution were, “You want my treasure? That is yours! He is wanted! I have buried somewhere the world’s biggest treasure.” This prize, the One Piece, is somewhere on the Grandline.

So began the glorious era of pirates… Monkey D. Ruffy is 16 years old and has an ambitious goal: to become king of the pirates and discover the treasure One Piece! Ruffy is a rubber guy with exceptional abilities derived from “GumGum,” the devil’s fruit. He has a recurring dream about the pirate Shanks, who once saved his life, and Ruffy handed him a very significant straw hat just before he left.
He must first locate a crew and a ship… Soon after saying it, it will be done! With the powerful swordsman Zorro, the liar Usopp, the beautiful Nami, the great chef Sanji, and, eventually, the moose cutter and a few more, he forms an odd but wonderful team. The newly formed “straw hat gang” (taken from Ruffy’s straw hat) has a great deal of difficulties with her wacky rubber cap, but that’s not the only obstacle the gang faces; several creeps also stand in their way. For example, Captain Black, who sought to destroy Usopp’s village, and Arlong, who is to responsible for Nami’s tragic background, etc. Additionally, the Navy hinders the group…
