The Plot of One Piece
- The appeal of One Piece, just like the appeal of other popular titles Rurouni Kenshin and Dragon Ball, roots from the colorful characters that inhabit the anime show and the pages of the manga that serves as the source material for all the seafaring misadventures of the Straw Hat Pirates. For example, Monkey’s companion Zoro wields three swords—one on each hand and the third one in his mouth.
- The wackiness of One Piece is also reminiscent of the Bizarre Adventures of the JoJo “Clan”, from Jonathan Joestar to Jotaro Kujo and beyond. One Piece also has its share of bizarre adventures that can only be given justice via the comic page or through a cartoon. A live-action adaptation of One Piece just won’t suffice in capturing the cartoony wackiness of these pirates.
- However, they’re not cartoons like the Looney Tunes. They’re bizarre and weird but the plot of One Piece is far from linear. It’s something to be experienced to be believed to be honest. At any rate, Luffy has the strongest and weirdest crew around, consisting of a swordsman, reindeer, sharpshooter, thief, mysterious lady, robot scientist, and living skeleton. One Piece is like an RPG turned into a manga turned into an anime.
