Plot

A boy named Monkey D. Luffy, inspired by his childhood hero Red-Haired Shanks, sets out on his journey to find One Piece and be the new Pirate King, with a powerful crew to back him up. To accomplish this, he must reach the end of the most deadly and dangerous ocean: The Grand Line.


Characters

Main article: List of One Piece characters

One Piece has a large amount of characters, many of which are either pirates or marines. The main protagonist is Monkey D. Luffy, the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates. He leads a crew of eight other pirates: Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Tony Tony Chopper, Nico Robin, Franky, and Brook. Each member has their own dream that is furthered by joining the Straw Hats. The anime and manga, One Piece, focuses around pirates searching for a legendary treasure left by Gold Roger. ... The Straw Hat Pirates ), sometimes referred to as the Luffy Pirates ) or the Straw Hat Crew ), are the main focus and protagonists of the anime and manga series One Piece, by Eiichiro Oda. ...


Production

The One Piece manga began its run in issue #34 of Shueisha's Shōnen Jump magazine on August 4, 1997. Its debut was preceded by two earlier one-shot stories, both entitled "Romance Dawn"; each featured Luffy, as well as elements that would find their way into the series (such as the backstory with Shanks and the appearance of Luffy's grandfather), but are not part of the series proper. Eiichiro Oda originally planned One Piece to last five years, and he had already planned out the ending, but he found himself enjoying the story too much to end it in that amount of time, and now has no idea how long it will take to reach that point.[1] Nevertheless, the author states (as of July 2007) that the ending is still the one he had decided on from the beginning, and he is committed to seeing it through to the end, no matter how many years it takes.[2] Shueisha ) is a major publisher in Japan, headquartered in Tokyo. ...

Produced by Toei Animation, an anime adaptation of One Piece premiered on Fuji TV on October 20, 1999. However, the first animated production of One Piece was an OVA produced in 1998 by Production I.G. Known as One Piece: Defeat The Pirate Ganzak!, it featured original character designs by Eiichiro Oda himself, a collaboration that has defined the television show in many ways as well. In contrast with many serialized manga-to-anime adaptations, author Eiichiro Oda works closely with the producers of the anime, providing ideas and feedback for original characters and scenarios added to the TV show, as well as keeping the producers abreast of future plot developments that cut down on internal contradictions in filler material (with some rare exceptions, such as the use of a non-existent naval rank and Zoro's cutting of iron during the Warship Island arc).[citation needed] Konosuke Uda, the director, said that the he believes that the creators "made the anime pretty close to the manga."[3] Toei Animation Company, Limited ) (JASDAQ: 4816) is a Japanese animation studio owned by the Toei Company. ...

The names of many special attacks and certain terminology in the manga consist of a form of punning, in which phrases written in kanji are paired with an idiosyncratic reading, usually mixing other languages (as with Luffy, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, and Franky's techniques) and possibly involving a joke (a number of Zoro's sword techniques, for example, are fearsome when read by sight but sound like kinds of food when read aloud). Eisaku Inoue, the animation director, has said that the creators did not use these kanji readings in the anime since they "might have cut down the laughs by about half." (While fighting the CP9, Zoro has one of these kanji symbols appear)[3] Japanese writing Kanji Kana Hiragana Katakana Hentaigana Manyōgana Uses Furigana Okurigana Rōmaji   ) are the Chinese characters that are used in the modern Japanese logographic writing system along with hiragana (平仮名), katakana (片仮名), and the Arabic numerals. ...


The development of the anime has also influenced the progression of the manga in a number of ways. Manga artist Eiichiro Oda did not initially intend to make Tony Tony Chopper the kind of "cute mascot" he became for the series, but the anime's use of voice actress Ikue Ohtani for the role influenced the character's design substantially. In the opposite vein, the author wrote the character of Franky with the voice of Kazuki Yao (who had previously voiced Jango and Mr. 2 Bon Clay) in mind.[citation needed] Tony Tony Chopper ) is a fictional character in the anime and manga series One Piece by Eiichiro Oda. ...
