The first time I watched an episode of One Piece, I found it interesting enough to continue watching it every week, but not interesting enough to continue reading the manga. After six months of not watching or reading any more episodes or chapters, I found myself unable to remember what happened in the story.


One Piece is a weekly manga published by Shueisha in Japan. It has been translated into various languages and published worldwide. The story follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a boy who decides to become king of the pirates, in order to find the One Piece treasure and become the world's richest man.


The manga is divided into two halves or "series": the "East Blue" series which primarily takes place within East Asia, and the "Grand Line" series which primarily takes place within an area known as the Grand Line.


The East Blue series follows Luffy's adventures to become Pirate King through his journey to use all three pieces of what he believes to be a treasure map. On his way, Luffy meets friends who join him along his journey, often sidetracked by other quests.
