‘One Piece’ is, very evidently, an adventurous fantasy. Monkey D. Luffy is the main protagonist of this Anime television and web series. The strong and famous pirate called ‘Red Haired’ Shanks had inspired the youthful Luffy into becoming one of the greatest pirates of the world. He wished to claim the title of the ‘King of the Pirates’ and discover the unknown treasures. Naturally, Luff wished to form his own little group of pirates who would help him reach his goal. His group would be called the ‘Straw Hat Pirates’.
On his journey to obtain this treasure, Luffy encounters a talented and skillful swordsman named Roronoa Zoro. Zoro was actually rescued by the brave Luffy. Soon their little duo becomes bigger and stronger as many other members start joining Luffy’s group of pirates. Nami, a great navigator and a thief, Usopp, a sniper, and a compulsive liar, and Vinsmoke Sanji, a deviant and perverse chef joined the Straw Hat Pirates and set off on their journey, on a ship called the Going Merry.
In the midst of their adventure to the East Blue Sea to acquire the treasure, the Straw Hat Pirates meet a bunch of other pirates who, on the other hand, were really evil and sadistic individuals. Not stirred by these hardships, Luffy and his crew of pirates overcome all of the problems that they were forced to face, while slowly increasing the members of the Straw Hat Pirates. Tony Tony Chopper, a doctor, Nico Robin, an archaeologist and a former assassin, Franky, a cyborg shipwright, Brook, a skeletal musician and swordsman, along with Jimbei, a fish-man helmsman, all decide to join Luffy’s group of pirates.
Due to the occurrence of a bunch of fights and battles between various pirates, Luffy’s Going Merry gets badly destroyed and hence, Luffy and his group continue their journey on a new ship called the Thousand Sunny. They meet an uncountable number of enemies and opponents, whom they fight off with courage. Moreover, they try to keep the peace within the group even though a few characters had some heat and tension between them. All of the members of the Straw Hat Pirates do whatever they can to achieve the treasure, and indirectly, achieve their dreams.
