“One Piece” is known throughout the world as one of the most famous anime around, as well as one of the oldest. “One Piece” was made in 1999 by Eiichiro Oda and the main character of the story is Monkey D. Luffy, a boy with the dream of becoming the next King of the Pirates by conquering the Grand Line and gaining friends along the way. 

There are many reasons to watch this anime, but one of the reasons is because this anime can give people a sense of confidence, bravery and the virtue they need to protect their friends and family. It can also give a sense of adventure and freedom. The characters are incredibly strong people and the promises they make with people become unbreakable bonds that tie them together. 

Some people don’t start this anime due to the fact that they’re overwhelmed by the sheer number of episodes. There are currently 1,049 episodes, with each episode being 23 minutes long. But for those who give it a chance, it hooks you. At the beginning of the series there are these silly side adventures and the overall story of “One Piece” draws you in because you actually start to wonder if Luffy will become the King of the Pirates and if any one of the Straw Hat pirates’ dreams will come true.

The story behind “One Piece” is filled with twists and turns, with all sorts of crazy adventures in store. It’s also filled with crazy powers such as Devil Fruits, which if you eat one you get a power but you lose the ability to swim. The characters can give words of inspiration to those who deserve or are in need of it. 

It’s a story filled with mysteries and secrets that nobody can see coming, betrayals that are unpredictable, and horrific backstories that will be carved into your mind. But there is also hope, hope that can inspire others to go against what’s wrong and stand for what they believe is right, hope that they can make their dreams become a reality, hope that will help make the world a better place. 

This anime is one the best out there because it can always make you smile and also inspires hope in others so that they too can smile toward a brighter future. It can give those the confidence they need to look towards that future with their friends by their side ‘til the end of their journey.
