Wanted! – Romance Dawn

『ONE PIECE』のプロトタイプとなった作品です。「ROMANCE DAWN」の題名で描かれた作品は『WANTED!』収録作より以前にもあり、こちらは『ONE PIECE RED』に収録されている『週刊少年ジャンプ』1996年Summer Special掲載。いずれも『ONE PIECE』とは設定が若干異なっており世界設定を共有してはいないが、主人公ルフィが食べると特殊な能力のつく木の実を食べてゴム人間となっている設定は既に両読切で固まっている。

『週刊少年ジャンプ』1996年41号掲載。『WANTED!』に収録。尾田が『るろうに剣心 -明治剣客浪漫譚-』のアシスタントをしていた時期に描かれた作品。
