One Piece is penned by Oda Eiichiro and has been published by Shueisha Publishings for over two decades. The captivating story tells the adventures of young pirate Monkey D. Luffy who journeys with his crew the Straw Hat Pirates on a ship called Thousand Sunny to search for a famed treasure known as One Piece.

In Thailand, One Piece is a favourite for people of all ages. The animation series has been running on Thai PBS, Channel 3 and MCOT since 2002.
