Summary: If you are new to the series One Piece or should I saw the main characters of the series who are always together are known as Luffy's Strawhats Pirates. Monkey D. Luffy, the main character, is a guy who wants to be the Pirate King and find One Piece, the treasure that was left bebind by the previous (deceased) Pirate King, Gol D. Rogers. So Luffy gathered has gathered crew members from different islands to form the Strawhats Pirates. The crew consists of Luffy (Captain), Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Tony Tony Chopper, Nico Robin, and the newest member Franky. In the anime they ride on the ship called the "Going Merry", which was a gift to the Strawhats from Kaya (Usopp's childhood friend), but it gets damaged beyond repair and in the manga they introduce the new ship, built by Franky, called "Thousand Sunny". I like this manga because it a pirate version of Naruto and the storyline is very similar, Luffy = Pirate King and Naruto = Hokage. Anyway, wanted to start this and see where it goes from here.
