A straw-hatted boy made of rubber sails the seas to find the greatest treasure in the world and become the King of the Pirates. He is racing thousands of other pirates to the end of the Grand Line, where the infamous Gol D. Roger has left his riches behind. The rubber boy’s pirate crew contains a robot shipwright, a shapeshifting animal doctor, an animated skeleton musician, and a bunch of equally zany humans. This is the premise of the manga series, ‘One Piece’, which is currently dominating the Japanese entertainment industry. Ah Japan, you’ve done it again.
