  • "I've set myself to become the King of the Pirates and if I die tryingthen at least I tried!" –Monkey D. Luffy

  • In 1997, Oda Eiichiro began writing and illustrating One Piece, the best-selling manga series in history with over 380 million volumes in circulation worldwide as 2015.

  • The success goes beyond the manga.

  • Its anime version has more than 680 episodes, plus many animated feature films, and television specials among other things.

  • The huge success of One Piece is due to its resounding theme.

  • It's all about "following your dreams," and sometimes we like to be reminded.

  • It follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a young man who explores the ocean with his crew, The Straw Hat Pirates.

  • He's searching for the world's ultimate treasure known as "One Piece," in order to become the next Pirate King.

  • Follow your dream.

  • A great message for sure but there is so much more.

  • Roronoa Zoro teaches us that you should never give up; no matter what, you must overcome pain, so you can become stronger.

  • However crazy your dream is to others, don't quit.

  • You want to be a pirate, so be it! Having a dream is simple, but courage is needed to follow through with it.

  • And sometimes that takes finding a crew.

  • Tony Tony Chopper teaches us to be careful not to judge people because you never know what form your crew can take.

  • Whatever your crew looks like or does or says, if they help you become a better pirate, so be it!

  • As we learn from the show: everything has its time and soul.

  • You can't bring back what you've lost but you can treasure what you have, so there's no point in wasting time thinking about the past.

  • Jimbei says it clearly: "what's gone is gone!" But ask yourself this, what remains?

  • Look always to the future and let your dreams drive you forward.

  • Fire Fist Ace, the adopted older brother of Luffy, reminds us that we should live our lives without any regrets.

  • Because as it's shown in the series, a life with no regrets is indeed a wonderful life.

  • Dream big.

  • And like Coby, we shouldn't worry about being able to achieve our dreams, as long as we have the desire to do it!

  • You are never too old to follow you dreams, whatever they may be.

  • Never stop dreaming because Blackbeard sums it up: A man's dream will never die.

"I've set myself to become the King of the Pirates and if I die tryingthen at least I tried!" –Monkey D. Luffy
