One Piece is manga/anime created by Eiichiro Oda. There are over 500 episodes of the One Piece anime, and the series is still going.

In this show, there are 'devil's fruit.' These fruits give you some kind of power, but take away your ability to swim.

The main character of the show is a boy named Monkey D. Luffy. (The author is japanese; and, in Japan, the family name comes first.) When he was seven, he accidently ate a devil's fruit. This fruit made him a 'rubber man.' He can stretch his body; he uses his power to help him fight.

Luffy wants to become the king of the pirates. The first pirate king, a man named Gol D. Roger, was caught by the marines and executed. Right before he died, he told the world that they could have his treasure, called one piece, if they could find it.

Why do I love One Piece? For starters, there is character development. The characters are complex; they have strengths and weaknesses like real people. They get stronger over time. Sometimes they win, sometimes they lose. The fight scenes in One Piece are really good. There are also some really funny moments in this show.
