Technically the heroes of One Piece, the Straw Hat Pirates, are villains in their own right. But like any good outlaw story, the truth is always more complicated than just who’s right and who’s wrong. The Straw Hats are pirates, which means they don’t abide by the laws of the World Government. Instead, they fly a jolly roger and sail in search of grand adventure, treasure, and ultimately freedom. Monkey D. Luffy is our main character, he’s unquestionably a hero, and is as strong as he is stupid. He’s very strong and he’s very stupid, but in a lovable, goofy way that draws people to him like a magnet. 

One Piece is from the mind of Eiichiro Oda, who began the series as a manga in 1997. Immediately successful, an anime adaptation followed soon after, which remains on the air to this day. Oda claims that the manga is winding down, having recently entered its final saga. But with the live-action adaptation hitting Netflix, now is a great time to take a closer look at the characters we meet in the story’s very first saga, East Blue.
