One Piece is a Japanese shonen manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It was first published in July 1997 and it hasn’t looked back since. One Piece became a fan-favorite manga series soon after its debut and its market domination was so overwhelming that it affected the sales of other series.
With its huge success, it became one of the Big Three in its community and got an anime adaptation by Toei Animation. Its first episode premiered on 20 October 1999 on Fuji TV.
Monkey D. Luffy, the series' main character, is the focus of One Piece. Accidentally consuming a Devil Fruit as a child gave Luffy's body rubber-like qualities, effectively transforming him into a rubber man. Luffy sets sail and travels the Grand Line with his pirate crew, the Straw Hat Pirates, with a dream to find the One Piece and become the next King of the Pirates. He visits unusual places on his quest and encounters a wide range of characters, both allies, and enemies.
One Piece is one of the longest-running manga series and anime of all time. So far, the franchise has 1058+ manga chapters divided into 103 tankobon volumes, 1030+ anime episodes divided into 20 seasons, 15 One Piece movies, and 20 OVAs (Original Animated Videos), shorts, and specials as of August 2022.
