About Zoro

Ronoroa Zoro is the earliest crewmate of Monkey D. Luffy. With his title as the vice-captain and the swordsman of the crew, he joins along with Luffy’s journey to become the king of the pirates along with his dream of becoming the greatest swordsman in the world after making his promise to his late childhood friend Kuina. The spinoff is an anime adaptation of the One Piece light novel.  

Before his pirate life, Zoro used to be a pirate hunter for a living until he became one after meeting Luffy. Together with Monkey D. Luffy and his crewmates, they embark on a journey to find the great treasure called One Piece - a treasure that gives someone a pirate king title - that was left behind by the legendary Pirate Gol D. Roger. 

What To Expect From One Piece Spinoff

Despite how far the One Piece series is right now to the point of reaching the final saga, some fans are still left unsatisfied regarding the characterization of Zoro because there are still myriads of mystery surrounding his character, especially his backstory. However, with the upcoming spinoff release, this could be a great opportunity to explore more of his character and who knows if we might get answers about his upbringing and ancestors.
