ONE PIECE (ワンピース Wan Pīsu) is a pirate adventure manga written and drawn by Eiichiro Oda, created in August 1997. The manga is known to employ colorful and creative motifs that are taken from classic mythology, politics and musical aspects. It is also mixed with pirate lore and shonen formula. This particular fanon spin-off, taking place a few years after the time-skip, follows the adventures of Gol D. Sid, the last surviving blood relative of the pirate king Gol D. Roger, and Hawkins D. James, a young pirate looking for answers to questions the World Government does not want answered. As the two young pirates build their own crews and gather friends and adversaries, their choices will shape not only their's but the whole world's future.
Almost a decade has passed since the Battle of Marineford and the world is a different place. Blackbeard and his crew, having hunted down many individuals with strong Devil Fruit powers, have grown strong enough that he has declared himself the new Pirate King. Many of the pillars of the pirate world, such as Marco and Big Mom, have fallen at Blackbeard's hands and his power grows by the day. Only the combined might of the other three Yonko has managed to keep him from conquering the whole of the New World. Meanwhile the Marines have become much more brutal and now follows a motto of "Justice at Any Cost". Through this all the Straw Hat Pirates managed to do what no one had done since the death of Gol D. Roger and managed to find the One Piece and simply vanished. But not before they revealed to the world that not just the One Piece but the truth about the Void Century and unimaginable treasures rested at Raftel, waiting to be claimed by anyone who could find it. This lead to another golden age of piracy, the recent oppression by the World Government and the desire for treasure and adventure driving people to the seas by the thousands.
Differences from CanonEdit
As this story is set 15 years after canon events, events related to the Straw Hats took place as seen in the manga, but with a twist. In this setting the enemies and allies encountered by the Straw Hats were all different, they encountered enemies just as strong, and progressed just as they did, but by defeating different characters. Characters like Buggy, Coby, and Perona will instead be introduced over the course of this story, but with a twist here and there and their back-stories modified to fit into the new timeline.
