You Don't Have To Know One Piece To Enjoy World Seeker You Don't Have To Know One Piece To Enjoy World Seeker

Monkey D. Luffy creeps me out. I’ve tried getting to know the main character of the popular manga and anime series many times, but his blank stare and creepy grin have put me right off One Piece every time. Now that’s I’ve had some time stretching, spinning, and leaping my way across Jail Island as the boy pirate in …
