As a child, monkey D. Luffy dreamed of becoming King of the Pirates. But his life changed when he accidentally gained the power to stretch like rubber...at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, Luffy sets off in search of the “One Piece,” said to be the greatest treasure in the world....

Luffy and the Straw Hat crew board their trusted ship and head under the sea towards Fish-Man Island. However, getting in their way will be fierce pirates, underwater volcanoes, and a humongous sea creature!

   Catch up.... when he lost his brother Ace in the Paramount War, Luffy learned just how weak he really was. But Luffy also reconfirmed how important his friends were for his to move forward. Rayleigh visits Luffy and suggests that he train. Agreeing, Luffy sends a message to the rest of his crew to meet again in two years.
After two years, the Straw Hat Pirates meet up once again in the Sabaody Archipelago. They set sail for the New World with a renewed resolve! Though the fake Straw Hats interfere, Luffy’s crew strikes them down easily. They are on their way to the underwater Fish-Man Island, but...

What happens....man, with all the down and down going on in the last couple of chapter I forgot how much these books make me laugh.
Funny shit.
They head down into the water, get caught up with Csribou Prates who want Luffy’s head for the fame that will bring them, problem is that MooMoo (sea-cow from back in vol 10 or 12) who stuffs up those plans, though there’s more to come with one of those pirates but I’m not sure what that is yet.
The ride down was funny, mostly because of Luffy and his wanting to tame a beast of a sea monster.

Arriving at Fish-Man island saw them all split up and shortly later had Sanji in desperate need of blood (he has woman problems)
From something that happened while travelling down, Luffy and his crew are invited into the Kings castle, but nothing is ever that easy and soon the fish-man are trying to lock them up for something that might happen in the future.

Luffy walks off (before all this) and ends up in the room of Princess and that leads to some fun all, and some laughs...man it’s funny....

   When we Continues....Luffy and Princess Shirahoshi head to the Forest of the Sea. But waiting there is an old friend who reveals a shocking story! Meanwhile, Hody Jones and his allies make their move to take over Ryugu Kingdom. But what is the source of the hatred that drives them...?
