    "My treasure? If you want it, you can have it! Find it! I left everything this world has to offer there!"
    Now everyone is in search of romanticism! The world has entered the Golden Age of Piracy!!
    This is the story of Monkey D. Luffy, an ambitious yet kind and rather dense young man who has eaten the Gum-Gum Fruit, turning him into a Rubber Man. He dreams of following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Captain "Red-Haired" Shanks, by becoming a great pirate. In fact, he plans to find One Piece and become the new "Pirate King". To that end, he has assembled one of the strongest (not to mention weirdest) crews in the world, consisting of:
    Roronoa Zoro: Probably the first mate. A cool, lazy, green-haired former Bounty Hunter with an impossibly bad sense of direction and super strength, who is the creator of the Santoryu (three sword style), carrying one in each hand and one in his mouth. Proves wise at times, and questionably sane at others. His goal is to become the world's greatest swordsman by defeating Dracule "Hawk Eye" Mihawk.
    Nami: A sly, spunky female thief, master manipulator, and outstanding navigator who dreams of making a map of the entire world. She's quite greedy and obsessed with cash, often conning other characters, even her own crew mates. Possesses an instinctive ability to predict the weather that borders on the supernatural, which later becomes the basis of her combat techniques.
    Usopp: A long-nosed, cowardly sharpshooter with a penchant for bragging and telling tall tales. He dreams of becoming a great warrior of the sea, much like his father, with the side goal of visiting Elbaf, an island of giants and a "warrior's paradise".
    Sanji: The sharp-dressed, snarky, girl-crazy, chain-smoking chef of the crew. Master of the Black Leg technique, with kicks strong enough to shatter boulders into dust, and possesses hidden intelligence. He dreams of finding the All Blue, a sea where the four "regular" seas (not counting the Grand Line) converge, which therefore holds every species of fish in the world.
    Tony Tony Chopper: A young, naive, and adorable reindeer who consumed the Human-Human Fruit, giving him sapience and a humanoid form. After a series of mishaps, was adopted by quack doctor Hililuk (and later mentored by grand doctor Kureha), becoming an expert doctor. He joined the Straw Hats to fulfill his dreams of becoming a doctor that can cure any disease, and to become his own man.
    Nico Robin: Unflappable mystery lady, archaeologist, former agent/assassin of Baroque Works who ate the Flower-Flower Fruit, and is the only survivor of Ohara, who has been ruthlessly hunted by the World Government since childhood. She dreams of finding the Rio Poneglyph, an enormous stone block that holds the world's "True History".
    Franky: The crew's resident shipwright/cyborg/speedo enthusiast. Powers up on cola and dreams of making an invincible ship that can sail to the edge of the world. Shows his approval through much gesticulating and cries of "SUPER!"
    Brook: A fencing musician skeleton with an afro, a weird sense of humor, an odd obsession with seeing women's panties, and the power to come back from the dead. Once. After he's already decayed to a skeleton. He dreams of reuniting with Laboon, a whale his crew befriended before leaving for the Grand Line, and betrayed by dying before returning to him as promised.
    Together, the group of True Companions known as the Straw Hat Pirates travel the world, making their way to and through the Grand Line, facing villainous rival pirates, Marine Forces, and corrupted elements of the World Government.
    The big gimmick to the show is that many characters, including Luffy, have consumed a "Devil Fruit". Devil Fruits grant the sole consumer incredible powers, at the cost of the consumer losing the ability to swim. Luffy, for example, has eaten the Rubber-Rubber Fruit, turning him into a Rubber Man that is capable of stretching his body like elastic. The powers granted by the other Devil Fruits are a varied bunch, from producing natural soap to transforming into a giraffe-human hybrid, to becoming a being made of living ice.
    Okay, that's a bit long. But yeah, love the series, characters, richness in both plot and world and as for what it is, my favorite manga and anime of all time.
    Discuss peeps.

    There's a reason it's #1 in Japan.
    Actually, when I started discovering other animes and peoples' opinions on them from the internet, most of the series I was exposed to before were seen in a new light. I could understand their flaws and accept that not everyone will agree with you on how good it is.
    For One Piece, I only came to understand just how good it actually is and that it's one of the best mangas out there.
