What is the Story of One Piece?

One Piece chronicles the story of Monkey D. Luffy, who puts together a pirate crew in an effort to acquire the fabled “One Piece” treasure and become the next pirate king. The former pirate king Gol D. Roger left behind this treasure. The plot begins in a world populated by pirates and develops into something more exquisite and unpredictable.

One Piece’s tale is broken up into major sagas, each of which has its own sub-sagas. The sub-sagas include a collection of arcs. These arcs are divided based on the islands Luffy and his crew visit. When they touch down on a new island, the arc begins. When they depart for another location, the current arc ends and marks the start of the new arc.
