“The East Blue Saga” is the introductory saga of the ONE PIECE series.
The saga starts off with a flashback of Gol D. Roger’s execution. Before he dies, he tells the crowds to go out and search for his treasure. This sparked the Golden Age of Pirates in which countless pirates raise their flags and set off to find One Piece.
“The East Blue Saga” is made up of six story arcs: Romance Dawn Arc, Orange Town Arc, Syrup Village Arc, Baratie Arc, Arlong Park Arc, Loguetown Arc.
Monkey D. Luffy meets Shanks as a young boy living in East Blue. This is where he recruits most of his crew and, ultimately, where the adventure begins.
