The One Piece live-action series is now streaming on Netflix, and in the first season, we meet Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates crew. One of the crew members we’re introduced to is Roronoa Zoro (Mackenyu), and he wasn’t an easy person to recruit.

Zoro is called the Demon Pirate Hunter and is the most feared pirate hunter in the East Blue. When he was younger, he made a promise to his childhood friend that one day he’d be the world’s greatest swordsman. This is a goal that he plans on achieving by any means necessary. When he meets Luffy, he makes it clear to the young pirate that he doesn’t want to join his pirate crew. But he ends up changing his mind after being swayed by Luffy’s charm and determination.

Luffy, Zoro, and the rest of the Straw Hat Pirates set sail on the high seas in search of the One Piece, but it’s not a smooth sailing journey with several different pirate crews after the same thing and the seaborne military forces, the Marines, hunting them down. Do the Straw Hat Pirates find the legendary treasure in the first season? Find out by watching One Piece on Netflix.
