Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the anime series One Piece. The series takes place following the World Government’s public execution of the Pirate King Gol D. Roger aka Gold Roger, but the Pirate King’s final words in turn usher in the Great Pirate Age (you want my treasured legacy then you can have it for everything that is mine has been gathered together in one place).
Most of the characters possess supernatural abilities which they acquired from eating Devil Fruits. The Devil Fruits in this series into 3 different categories consisting of Paramecia (supernatural abilities-mystical), Logia (supernatural abilities-physical & mystical) and Zoan (supernatural abilities thereby resulting in a physical transformation from Human to Animal).
The protagonists in this series are the StrawHat Pirates which are comprised of Monkey D. Luffy (the Straw Hat’s Captain whose dream is to be the next Pirate King)(Paramecia: Gum-Gum Fruit), Roronoa Zoro (a Pirate Hunter turned Pirate whose dream is to be the greatest swordsman in the world)(Zoro specializes in the 3 sword style which is where he wields three katanas in battle), Nami (the Straw Hat’s Navigator whose dream is to chart the entire world), Usopp (the Straw Hat’s Sharpshooter whose dream is to be a gallant warrior of the sea, just like his father Yasopp)(Usopp wields a giant slingshot in battle), Vinsmoke Sanji (the Straw Hat’s Cook (Sanji specializes in a kick-based fighting style), Tony Tony Chopper (the Straw Hat’s Doctor as well as a blue-nosed reindeer)(Zoan: Human-Human Fruit),Nico Robin (the Straw Hat’s Archaeologist)(Paramecia: Flower-Flower Fruit), Franky (the Straw Hat’s Shipwright)(Franky is a Cola-powered Cyborg with superhuman strength) and Humming Brook/Dead Bones Brook/Soul King Brook (the Straw Hat’s Musician)( Brook wields a Shikomizue/japanese cane sword in battle)(Paramecia: Revive-Revive Fruit).
In conclusion, I found this series to be equal in popularity to both Naruto and Dragon Ball in series length as well as series storyline.
