Monkey D. Luffy is a boy with the aspiration to become King of the Pirates, after listening to the tales of wonder from his hero, a pirate named Red-Haired Shanks. While listening to one of these stories, Luffy accidentally eats a rare, devil fruit. This devil fruit gives him to power to stretch like rubber, but with a large cost. He can never swim again. This doesn't stop Luffy, even after Shanks and his crew leave. Ten years later, Luffy's dream starts to unfold as he sets out to become a pirate. Along the way, he meets many new people, both friend and foe. This is the start of his pirate journey.
I recommend this book, because it has a great story line. It really wants you to stay in the book, one page after the next. The art is great.With the amount of detail in some panels, and less than others, it makes you want to look for things you wouldn't otherwise notice, like Panda Man, in this book. i really have enjoyed this series, and would recommend it to anyone who reads manga.
