Synopsis of One Piece
Gol D. Roger was known as the “Pirate King”, the strongest and most infamous being to sail the Grand Line. Roger’s capture and execution by the World Government brought about a change throughout the world. His last words before his death revealed the existence of the greatest treasure in the world, the One Piece. It was this revelation that sparked the Great Age of Pirates, men dreaming of finding the One Piece, which promises limitless amounts of riches and fame, and quite possibly the pinnacle of glory and the title of Pirate King.
Enter Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old boy who defies your standard definition of a pirate. Instead of the popular persona of an evil, hardened, toothless pirate who plunders villages for fun, Luffy’s reason for being a pirate is pure wonder: the idea of an exciting adventure that leads him to intriguing people and ultimately, to the promised treasure. Following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Luffy and his team travel across the Grand Line, experiencing crazy adventures, unraveling dark mysteries, and fighting strong enemies, all in order to attain the most coveted of all fortunes: the One Piece! .
