One Piece: Loguetown Arc is the first of the series' tie-in books, a novelization of the Loguetown Arc. It was written by Tatsuya Hamazaki (浜崎 達也, Hamazaki Tatsuya?), and released on July 17, 2000 in Japan. A re-release, under the Mirai Bunko imprint, released on March 1, 2011.

Tsunemasa Takahashi (高橋 常政, Takahashi Tsunemasa?), an artist with experience working on book covers,[3] is listed as a copyright holder in the novel; whether he worked on the cover art is unclear.


While the novel primarily retells the Loguetown Arc (with several expansions and minor changes), it also draws material from every previous arc of the East Blue Saga, mainly for exposition on the Straw Hat Pirates' backgrounds.
