For the saga that all takes place in this sea, see East Blue Saga.

The East Blue is an ocean in the One Piece World and was the setting of the first six arcs of the manga and anime and the anime only Warship Island arc. East Blue, like its sister seas, comprises almost entirely of ocean, with a few scattered islands and a border called the Red Line.

The East Blue is commonly known as the weakest of all the seas. Pirates who are considered great and threatening in this sea are regarded as low rate compared to pirates from the other seas and especially in the Grand Line. The sea's weak status was demonstrated by Dracule Mihawk when he single-handedly took out every ship in Don Krieg's fleet (except the flagship that was lucky enough to escape, which he later hunted down), recognized as the strongest fleet in the East Blue, when they tried to enter the Grand Line. Ironically, despite its poor fame, the East Blue was the birthplace of the most powerful pirate of all time, the late Pirate King Gol D. Roger, and many other powerful and world renowned characters, such as Monkey D. Dragon, Monkey D. Luffy and Roronoa Zoro.


Loguetown, the city in the East Blue located closest to the Grand Line, was the birthplace of the late Pirate King, Gol D. Roger. Twenty two years ago, it also became the place where he was executed, and it was the words spoken by Roger just before his death that set off the Great Age of Pirates.

Eight years before the start, Arlong and his crew arrived from the Grand Line to begin their conquest of the four seas, starting with East Blue as they deem it the weakest. Their plans were foiled when they were defeated by Monkey D. Luffy, who would then gain the reputation as the strongest pirate within East Blue of the time.

It became a stopping place for pirates heading towards the Grand Line, as a nearby Lighthouse lit up the route towards Reverse Mountain, the entrance of the Grand Line. This ended when Captain Smoker was placed in charge of the town's Marines, though it could very well have started once again immediately after Smoker left his post in his attempt to capture Straw Hat Luffy.

  • The East Blue is generally considered the weakest of the seas, because the average bounty for the East Blue is set at only Beli3,000,000. Any bounty that reaches over Beli10,000,000 is considered impressive.
  • The most dangerous known pirate (until Luffy came along) was the fishman Arlong with a bounty of Beli20,000,000 (however, his bounty was lowered due to bribery).
  • The biggest pirate fleet in the East Blue was that of Pirate Admiral Don Krieg.
  • The best rated swordsman in the East Blue was Roronoa Zoro.
  • Loguetown's original Japanese name is a reference to the 'logue' in the words "prologue" and "epilogue", the before and after sections of a story. So literally, Loguetown means 'the beginning and the end'.
  • East Blue is mentioned in the extra episodes for One Piece Film: Strong World. The civilians in question are old inhabitants of East Blue, now being inhabitants of Little East Blue.
  • A notorious pirate back from the Roger era, Shiki the Golden Lion, holds a grudge towards this particular sea. He deems it the weakest of the Four Blues; and yet the man who managed to defeat him, Roger, came from there, and also met his end there, preventing Shiki from killing Roger himself. Shiki was defeated a second time by Luffy, who came from East Blue as well.
