Come aboard and bring along...all of your hopes and dreams!
In a world of endless oceans and exotic islands, a Golden Age of Piracy has arisen following the execution of the infamous "King of Pirates", Gold Roger. With his last words, Roger announced that he had stockpiled every piece of his plunder in a single location, and challenged the world to find and claim his hidden treasury for themselves.
Following this, aspiring pirates and treasure hunters from across the globe set out for the Grand Line, the most dangerous and unpredictable stretch of ocean in the entire world. There, they hope to find Roger's ultimate cache, which would come to be known as the "One Piece".

The works in this franchise so far are:
Anime and manga
- One Piece: what started it all and what you're probably looking for. The still on-going manga and anime series. Here's the recap page.
- Animated movies:
- One Piece: The Movie: First movie that takes place before the crew meet Sanji. Involves the Straw Hat getting involved in a treasure hunt.
- Clockwork Island Adventure : Still set in East Blue, the Straw Hat's ship is stolen and while in pursuit Nami is kidnapped which leads the crew to a island under oppression from her kidnappers, leading the crew to mount a rescue attempt.
- Chopper's Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals: Rides on the large popularity of Chopper, and contains many a Green Aesop.
- Dead End Adventure: First full length movie in the series. The Straw Hats participate in a race.
- The Cursed Holy Sword: Focus heavily on Zoro. The Straw Hats get involved in a mystical quarrel involving a cursed ancient artifact.
- Baron Omatsuri And The Secret Island: Differs widely in art style from the other movies, is much darker, and is the only one where Luffy outright kills the antagonist.
- The Giant Mechanical Soldier Of Karakuri Castle: The crew wind up in yet another treasure hunt on an island governed by an eccentric clockwork inventor. Noticeable for having a different voice for Chopper at the time and gratuitous amounts of Gainaxing.
- The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventures in Alabasta: This is the first movie that has been dubbed by FUNimation; it compresses the Alabasta arc into roughly an hour and a half, starting roughly at the first fight between Luffy and Crocodile.
- Episode of Chopper Plus: Bloom in the Winter, Miracle Sakura: Like the last movie, it's a retelling of a story arc; this time, Drum Island. Only it's set in an alternate universe where all subsequent arcs from Alabasta to Post-Enies Lobby have already occured. In other words, Robin and Franky are on the crew instead of Vivi, and they're sailing on the Sunny instead of the Merry.
- One Piece Film: Strong World: The tenth movie, written by Oda himself. It takes place between the Thriller Bark saga and the Sabaody Archipelago arc. This is the second movie that has been dubbed by FUNimation and is currently the only movie considered canon.
- One Piece 3D: Straw Hat Chase: The first 3D movie, albeit only half an hour long. Tries out some interesting 3D action choreography that would be hard to do in the regular Anime series.
- One Piece Film: Z: Takes place between the Fishman Island arc and Punk Hazard arc, and is the first One Piece movie to be set after the Time Skip. Like the tenth, it was written by Oda himself. It was initially planned to be canon, but after too many inconsistencies with the Manga was noted, Oda decided to make it non-canon instead.
