One Piece

The One Piece manga is initially published as a serial in the anthology magazine Weekly Shonen Jump. As the magazine’s name suggests, a new issue of Jump (and thus a new chapter of One Piece) is released on a weekly basis. Accounting for the magazine’s holiday breaks and Eiichiro Oda’s personal hiatuses, approximately 45-48 chapters are published per year.
The series focuses on Monkey D. Luffy, a young man made of rubber, who, inspired by his childhood idol, the powerful pirate Red-Haired Shanks, sets off on a journey from the East Blue Sea to find the mythical treasure, the One Piece, and proclaim himself the King of the Pirates. In an effort to organize his own crew, the Straw Hat Pirates,[Jp 1] Luffy rescues and befriends a pirate hunter and swordsman named Roronoa Zoro, and they head off in search of the titular treasure. They are joined in their journey by Nami, a money-obsessed thief and navigator; Usopp, a sniper and compulsive liar; and Sanji, a perverted but chivalrous cook. They acquire a ship, the Going Merry,[Jp 2] and engage in confrontations with notorious pirates of the East Blue.
