What's the general consensus on One Piece here at /a/? I stopped reading it after the Arlong Park arc, and considering its length, I dunno if it's worth catching up on.
The consensus is generally that it is the best out of the Big Three. Whether you should read it depends on how much you like perpetuals.
Despite running for almost 20 years old, it has the more coherent plot out the "Big 3".
It's shounenshit for autistic fedoracore brony edgelords, it's a fucking pleb-tier entry level meme anime
It's okay, there are much better manga out there and it has been going downhill since the timeskip.
Worse than Naruto in my opinion.
Very good weekly action/adventure Shounen.
Oldfag opinion ahead:
The era from Arlong Park to end of Water 7 is probably OP at its best, even though all the transition and world-building arcs like Sabaody or Jaya are god tier.
Oda had problems adapting to a more modern style, panelling and (a bit later) a partially new fanbase nad their demands as well, so the manga loses a lot of its qualities from Imdel Down to Punk hazard, but is slowly getting back on track again.
Overall a decent 7-9.5/10 title depending on your preferences in the genre.
The consensus it that people who open a fucking thread to ask such a pointless question even annoy someone like me who likes the series. Theres a fucking general, what is so hard about lurking and fucking realizing that people keep discussing the series? Why do you think they do so? Because its disliked?
One Piece is honestly the only one of the big three that I enjoy. Naruto I felt was mediocre at best, and had too many unlikable characters. Bleach was okay in its early years, but then pretty much shat on itself after a while.
IT NEEDS TO END ALREADY
Thanks for the insight guys. I think I'll give it a second go.
informative posts that I won't find in OP discussion threads (like the one above you) is the reason I asked.
I have no idea how I will even respond to One Piece ending. It has probably been the most consistent thing in my life for around 10 years. Every week, without fail (except for around New Year's) there's a new episode. Not having a new episode every week is going to be pretty jarring when it happens.
>watching one piece
Its been poor quality for a long time, but the last few episodes have been redeeming. Essentially, I can either read a chapter per week, or watch a chapter per week. I find watching it more enjoyable.
Why is Sleeping Beauty so damn pretty?
One piece fans are like atheists. They think they are enlightened and euphoric but in reality theyre way more obnoxious than naruto fans.
It's a bad manga. /a/ only likes it because it's socially acceptable to read it in Japan. I can't understand the people who shit on Bleach, Naruto and even Toriko yet don't see OP for the garbage that it is.
Same here. I'm about halfway through with the episodes of the Punk Hazard arc. The manga art is pretty decent, but holy hell I hate that every other panel is loaded with a paragraph. Even with the economic animation most of the time I still am finding it more enjoyable than when I was reading it.
It and Hunter x Hunter are easily the best long running shounen of all time.
I find it hilarious when religious people (nee: murican christians) attempt to make fun of atheists.
You literally believe in magic bro. You loose in the "enlightened" argument by default.
Part of why I dislike the anime is that its pretty much one chapter per episode.
10-20 page chapters don't exactly translate into a 20 minute episode of animation very well, resulting in slow pacing, and filler moments. Dragon Ball Z did the same thing, and it ended up with a 5 minute fight becoming nearly 20 episodes long.
I actually don't mind Toriko.
And I liked Bleach when it was in its earlier days, before Kubo stopped caring.
This is actually the most compelling argument to read One Piece I've seen on /a/.
>but holy hell I hate that every other panel is loaded with a paragraph.
Overrated shit with a vocal fanbase that can't argue and just suck Oda's cock all day long.
Same can be said about Evangelion and Anno's cock.
I like Evangelion, btw
If you like adventure you'd probably like One Piece
That goes with every fanbase though.
Yes, that's why fans aka fanatics are fuckwits.
It's pretty good but it has the worst fanbase out there. I honestly think /a/ has the best fans and that's not saying much.
>a-am I f-f-fitting in y-yet?
I'm laughing so hard right now
buzzwords for days
I kinda hope they do a "Kai" of some sort sometime in the future. Like maybe reduce the first 516 episodes to just around 200. And then again for the second half, once OP finishes in 10-15 years time.
