One Piece is a very popular manga and anime about pirates. Takuyuki Machida, 47, and his wife were apparently pirates. How fitting.

From July 2011 and March 2012, the two supposedly sold 38 pirated DVDs that were procured from a South Korean website. The DVDs were then resold online.

According to authorities, the couple made the equivalent of US$200,000 in pirated sales since 2006. Sounds like they were The King of the Pirates...pirates.
