Luffy, a young man inspired by his childhood idol and powerful pirate "Red Haired" Shanks, sets off on a journey from the East Blue sea to find the One Piece and proclaim himself as the King of the Pirates.

They are joined by Nami, a navigator and thief; Usopp, a sniper and a liar; and Sanji, a womanizing chef. In their journey, they acquire a ship named the Going Merry, and the rest is for you to discover. Get to reading!
