How to Watch One Piece in Order (With Movies)

The One Piece anime is based on a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. According to the series' lore, the man who acquired everything, the Pirate King, was Gol D. Roger. The final words he said at the execution tower were: "My treasures? If you want it, I'll let you have it. Look for it; I left all of it at that place." The words of Gol D. Roger had an impact on pirates all over the world as they headed toward the Grand Line in search of the One Piece!

One Piece follows the story of Monkey D. Luffy, a boy who unintentionally ate a Devil Fruit, leading his body to gain the properties of rubber. Luffy hopes to become the next Pirate King someday and hence, sets of several adventures with his pirate crew, the Straw Hat Pirates. Together they explore the Grand Line, searching for the "One Piece."

Fans can watch all the latest episodes of One Piece on Crunchyroll and Funimation. The latest episodes are currently airing in Japanese with English subtitles. One Piece's English dubbed version is quite far behind the original series, with only 794 episodes.

One Piece has a very precise timeline; however, some arcs are not released chronologically. We recommend first-time watchers of the anime follow the release order. The specials, OVAs, and shorts can be watched at any time because they don't follow the storyline of the main anime and hence spoil nothing.
