Luffy goes on an adventure after he meets Shanks the Red, the captain of a pirate ship who spent a year in his village and saved him from a sea monster by sacrificing his left arm. Since then, Luffy wears his straw hat that he gave him to mark the promise of becoming a great pirate. This hat will become the symbol of his crew. It is at this time that he eats a demon fruit that Shanks had: the Gum Gum fruit, which makes his body elastic. Once eaten, the demon fruit gives special abilities to its holder, who also loses all his strength when immersed in sea water. Luffy and his crew will meet many people who will strengthen their friendship and expand their crews. But they will have to confront pirate crews advocating violence and power, as well as the Navy and its soldiers, guarantors of justice.
