One Piece( Wan Psu

) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by
Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Weekly Shnen Jump since August 4, 1997; the individual
chapters are being published in tankbon volumes by Shueisha, with the first released on
December 24, 1997, and the 73rd volume released as of March 2014. One Piece follows the
adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a young boy whose body gains the properties of rubber after
unintentionally eating a Devil Fruit, and his diverse crew of pirates, named the Straw Hat Pirates.
Luffy explores the ocean in search of the world's ultimate treasure known as One Piece in order
to become the next Pirate King.
The chapters have been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) produced by Production
I.G in 1998, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in
Japan in 1999. Since then, the still ongoing series has aired over 600 episodes. Additionally, Toei
has developed eleven animated feature films, two OVA's, and five television specials. Several
companies have developed various types of merchandising such as a trading card game, and a
large number of video games.
The manga series was licensed for an English language release in North America by Viz Media,
in the United Kingdom by Gollancz Manga, and in Australia and New Zealand by Madman
Entertainment. The anime series has been licensed by Funimation Entertainment for an English-
language release in North America, although the series was originally licensed and distributed by
4Kids Entertainment.
One Piece has received wide critical acclaim, primarily for its art, characterization, humor and
story. Several volumes of the manga have broken publishing records, including highest initial
print run of any book in Japan and the first book to sell over three million copies in Oricon
history. As of 2013, the series had over 345 million volumes in circulation worldwide, making it
the best-selling manga series in history.
