One Piece

One Piece is a graphic novel about pirates with extraordinary powers that come from eating mysterious fruits called "Devil Fruits". These fruits give the user different powers depending on what fruit is eaten. No same fruit appears twice as long as the user is still living, for example, Monkey D. Luffy (the protagonist throughout One Piece) ate the "gum-gum fruit" and therefore the gum-gum fruit shall not appear while Luffy is alive. However, two different models of the same fruits may both exist at the same time, for example, the "mutt-mutt fruit". There is the mutt-mutt fruit "dachshund model" (owned by Mr.Four's bazooka) and the mutt-mutt fruit "wolf model" (owned by Jabra of Cipher Pol 9). Hopefully you now understand the concept of Devil Fruits and are ready to move on.
In One Piece there are several different volumes, (that meaning tons of different volumes) and as I believe Eiichiro Oda has said they rack up a rather large amount of money if you buy them all. (Use the library)...(Duh). With all of these different volumes each volume does not tell their own story but tell fragments of an "arc". Arcs are different stories and there are several of them, I will list them here.
East Blue arc
Boroque Works arc
Skypeia arc
Water Seven arc
Sabody arc
Impel Down arc and
Paramount War arc.
I apologize for the fact that this information will soon go out of date as Eiichiro Oda writes more and more One Piece. I will say very little more about One Piece because I want you to read it for yourself and come to enjoy (oops, typo - did I say enjoy? Sorry, What I meant was love and cherish absolutely every single volume) it as I have. (Read it). Read it. READ IT. GO AWAY. STOP READING MY SUCKISH REVIEW AND READ ONE PIECE!
