I have many friends who love very smart, deep, and thoughtful story lines on the series they watch. When I tell them about One Piece they just say "Isin't it about pirates?" or "Too much fighting". However, everyone in this sub knows that One Piece is a very well, thought out series with deep meanings, story line, and sometimes even complex characters. Oda even uses references of culture, and history and puts them together into a story that is fascinating, and well thought out. So, if you could explain and summarize One Piece in a way that explains its complexity and awesomeness, what would you say? Spoilers are okay to include.
