I recently discovered the manga called One Piece, drawn by Oda Eiichiro. And yes, I’ve just discovered it even though it’s been running since 1997. The main story contains numerous sub-plots within, but basically the story is about a pirate crew.
The series gets its name from the treasure that the crew is searching for: One Piece. The series focuses closely on the crew’s adventures but also contains themes such as friendship. The manga can be categorised under comedy, action, since it contains quite a lot of fighting. The art of the manga is detailed and accurate, very comical as well. All of the characters that appear in the series have a different personality, which I believe is a very hard thing to achieve, considering that fact that there are quite a LOT of characters in the manga.
A short introduction to the crew:
The crew consists of nine members, which is relatively small. There are four male members, two female members, one cyborg, one skeleton and also a reindeer.
The crew (generally referred to as the Strawhat Crew, or the Strawhats) also consider their ship as a crew mate, which is quite rare.
