We’re here to catch you up on everything you need to know about the anime series One Piece. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen it before, or if it’s been ages since you have seen the series. By the end of our recap you will be ready to pick up on the series episodes that are available now on Funimation Anime On Demand.
Right now One Piece is the most popular series on TV in Japan. Think of how big Pokemon was here in the late 90s, and multiply that by ten, then you’ll have a good idea of how popular the show is in Japan. And with its recent releases from FUNimation, it’s quickly starting to make its way up ranks in the U.S. as well.
So, One Piece is a show all about Pirates! See, a really famous pirate back in the day announced he had left his greatest treasure hidden somewhere in the world…something called The One Piece! So of course now everyone wants it! We follow the main character, Luffy, who ate a devil fruit and became a rubber man, on his quest to find the One Piece and become King of the Pirates.
