One Piece Plot

The legendary pirate treasure “One Piece” is the object of desire for all sailors. This also applies to Monkey D. Luffy, who has been fascinated by the activities of seafarers since his earliest childhood. Any attempts to sign on on one of the ships, however, fail miserably. One day, when he eats a so-called gum-gum fruit, his life changes abruptly: suddenly he can no longer swim, but his limbs knot and stretch as if they were made of rubber.
