ONE PIECE (ADN, CRUNCHYROLL)
There was a time when Gold D. Roger was the greatest of all pirates, the “Pirate King” was his nickname. When he died, his priceless treasure known as “One Piece” was hidden somewhere on “Grand Line”.
Many pirates went in search of this treasure, but all died before they even reached it. Monkey D. Luffy dreams of finding this legendary treasure and becoming the new “King of the Pirates”. After eating a devil fruit, he possesses a power that allows him to make his dream come true. Now he has to find a crew to go on an adventure!
For those who have not yet seen One Piece, it is high time to discover this river series now containing 1000 episodes because it is available in its entirety on DNA! The work created by Eiichirō Oda is a monument of Japanese culture, which has been exported beyond the country’s borders to conquer the world.
If you haven’t yet given in to the adventures of these colorful pirates, go for DNA! Note that a live adaptation is in the works for Netflix. But until then, you’ve got time to (re) do the entire anime! There is also a feature film that promises to be dantesque and that will land next August, One Piece Red!

MADE IN ABYSS (WAKANIM)
On the surface of the planet, a place still remains unexplored and filled with secrets: a gigantic hole called “The Abyss”. This a priori bottomless crevasse contains treasures that humanity is unable to reproduce. Fascinated by this strange abyss, many people have ventured there at the risk of never coming back.
Rico, a young orphan living on the outskirts of the Abyss, dreams of following in her mother’s footsteps, a cavewoman, and taking the plunge. His encounter with a mysterious human-looking robot may well precipitate his journey.
Don’t be swayed by the childish character design and the marvelous universe in which the story takes place, Made In Abyss is aimed more at an adult and prepared audience. Indeed, an oppressive atmosphere and quite violent scenes are on the program of this descent into the depths. However, the anime, far from being cataloged as horror, also knows how to be light, funny and moving.
In many ways, the series is reminiscent of the films of Miyazaki, a filmmaker who also does not hesitate to tackle delicate themes, even in his family works. Indulge !
