One Piece (Wanpi-su) is a manga and anime series created by manga artist Eiichiro Oda. One Piece focuses on a ragtag crew of pirates called Straw Hat Pirates led by Captain Monkey D. Luffy. Luffy's greatest ambition is to obtain the world's ultimate treasure, One Piece, and become Pirate King.
The manga began its serial run in issue #34 of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on August 4, 1997, while the anime adaptation produced by Toei Animation premiered on Fuji TV on October 20, 1999. Eiichiro Oda originally planned One Piece to last five years, and he had already planned out the ending; the story has continued far beyond his expectations, and its popularity has swelled to enormous proportions.
One Piece is the fourth highest selling manga in the history of Weekly Shonen Jump, and is currently Japan's most popular and all-time third-best-selling Weekly Shonen Jump title. Volume 24 of the One Piece manga was the highest selling Japanese novel of all time, prior to the publication of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. par mohamed janah
