Are you missing one of the greatest adventures of our Generation and is definitely deserving to be on the WWW.THEBESTOFTHEBEST.SITE My site I just started promoting only the best of the best of anything and everything around the internet. Eiichiro Oda started the One Piece series July 22, 1997 to present, and much like his story and the Strawhat crew, have grown and developed through their adventure and crossed around the world becoming the best selling Manga in history and still going.
Also much like the series, the One Piece story has navigated around the world in real life from Japan, the story starts in the East Blue and we the reader follow the crew through the expansive world to make new discoveries , lands, and a conglomerate of unusual people and customs. Here in the US most of us have never heard about this Japanese treasure. Although the Guinness book of world records has, as Oda and one piece have set a record for longest written series by one person. Oda has been the sole creator, writer and artist of The series since it’s beginnings. It has sold more issues around the world than all of the creations except Superman just surpassing Batman a few months ago. Incredibly this has been done in the span of only 21 years. This series is full of adventure humor and has a lot of world building in character development surprises and twists, as Luffy and his crew goes on his quest for him to become the pirate King and find the One Piece. With a cast of masterfully created characters, Zoro, Nami, Osopp, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, Brook new Frankie and Jinbei that Luffy gathered throughout the years in his travels, the crew is nearly or may be complete as the story draws near the end, possibly another for five years and Luffy will have found the one piece and all his crew members will has fulfilled their own personal dreams and helped Luffy become the Pirate King.
Here is the premise pasted from Wikipedia
“The series focuses on Monkey D. Luffy, a young man who, inspired by his childhood idol and powerful pirate "Red Haired" Shanks, sets off on a journey from the East Blue Sea to find the titular treasure and proclaim himself the King of the Pirates. In an effort to organize his own crew, the Straw Hat Pirates,[Jp 1] Luffy rescues and befriends a swordsman named Roronoa Zoro, and they head off in search of the One Piece. They are joined in their journey by Nami, a navigator and thief; Usopp, a sniper and a pathological liar; and Vinsmoke Sanji, a perverted chef. They acquire a ship named the Going Merry[Jp 2] and engage in confrontations with notorious pirates of the East Blue. As Luffy and his crew set out on their adventures, others join the crew later in the series, including Tony Tony Chopper, a doctor and anthropomorphized reindeer; Nico Robin, an archaeologist and former assassin; Franky, a cyborg shipwright; Brook, a skeletal musician and swordsman; and Jimbei, a fish-man helmsman and former member of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. Once the Going Merry becomes damaged beyond repair, the Straw Hat Pirates acquire a new ship named the Thousand Sunny.[Jp 3] Together, they encounter other pirates, bounty hunters, criminal organizations, revolutionaries, secret agents and soldiers of the corrupt World Government, and various other friends and foes, as they sail the seas in pursuit of their dreams.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Piece
Unlike American comic books that come out once a month in color with a team of artists, inkers, writers and have fragmented storylines, most Japanese Manga(comic book) come out once a week in black and white at least three times a month which is a break neck Speed for the industry. With an overarching long storyline and Shorter Arch’s connecting the entire series makes it feel more tangible than American comics. Not only does the manga come out once a week, so does the anime which is further down the storyline as the manga is written first, but also at unheard of speed here in the western side of the world. The one piece community here in America has grown substantially over the past 20 years with a huge following on YouTube from various content creators, Also on Reddit and a dedicated one piece podcast, The One Piece Podcast.

The sheer size of 1024 chapters as I am writing this can be intimidating but also so rewarding as each arc takes you through different parts of the one piece world and builds on the entire world scope.
