Netflix’s One Piece, an adaptation of the original story by Oda, tells the story of Luffy, a young man who has always dreamed about becoming the King of the Pirates. He lives in a world mostly covered by water, where Pirates and Marines fight constantly for control. In this world, strange and mythical items known as Devil Fruits grant the ones who eat them amazing powers.

As a child, Luffy ate the Gum-Gum fruit, which transformed his body into rubber and gave him the ability to stretch himself. Armed with these powers and his dreams, he ventured into the sea to find the treasure of the former Pirate King, the legendary One Piece. You can watch the first season of the show right now on Netflix.
