So how many disagree when I say OP is one of the best. Saying things such as "it's too long" really confuses me. I'm up to date on the series and have now had post One Piece depression since smashing through it. When you watch 2-3 episodes a night before going to bed you literally become a member of the straw hat crew. I know people have their preferences but this one is just an anime/manga must watch. The story is brilliant and art is fantastic, such a perfectly structured piece of shounen.

Picture related: its mfw people tell me its trying too hard to be like Fairy Tail. That is a criminal thing to say for multiple/obvious reasons

I second this

The manga is good, the anime is dog shit. How do people sit through the anime without putting a gun to their heads? Shit animation, shit pacing, Toei is cancer.
>>
It's a really fun series. Glad to hear you enjoyed it, OP. If you don't mind reading the manga I you should give it a go. The anime has been pretty bad since water 7 with horrible pacing and overall bad quality.
>>
>>101672317
They make good stuff too.
They just won't dump any unnecessary money into a guaranteed success.
>>
>>101672317
The anime is still good until Water 7 although they change a few details.
>>
>>101672367
The pacing was good until Water 7 and alright for Enies Lobby, but took a nosedive ever arc after that so I dropped it and stuck to the manga. I tried getting back into it during the Punk Hazard arc but just couldn't. Animation is horrendous now also.

lmao in what fantasy world are you living.
It has some one the worst character designs, art style ive ever seen.
and I watch shit like Kaiji too.
>>
>>101672096
I can't deal with the fact that people never die, the empty over sentimentality at times and the formulaic way they act on most islands. Not to mention the fillers are just painful to read.

find island -> make friends! -> fight baddies -> turns out there's some secret

Another thing that just annoys me about the whole thing is how everyone seems to have the mindset of a child. When I was a teenager I liked the show quite a bit.. but now its intolerable.

Also, the anime is trying to drag itself out really hard at this point, it's not even watchable.

I'm not a pissfag, stop getting mad at things you don't enjoy. I already mentioned that the story is shit. The arcs are totally hit or miss. The one thing it does great is the word. You just want to be fucking there in this world on the strawhats ship having fun.

Personally i can't stand OP art.

With colors and movements, in the anime, is much better but everytime i look at the overcramped and horribly drawn manga i just can't go on.

Fairy Tail has a lot of issues and OP is surely better, i'm not going to argue at all.
But you can't deny that Mashima is able to draw everything much better, while still having the "gag" Oda style in it.
>>
>>101673849
>i look at the overcramped and horribly drawn manga i just can't go on.
I agree with this, water 7 had big panels and the art was a lot better because of it, now it's small panels and small drawings

OP here

I heavily agree with that. Fairy Tail was one of the biggest disappointments for me simply because Its art gave me extremly high expectations and then the story was less than mediocre. Mashima rushed his way through the arcs and it felt like i knew nothing about any of the characters even after catching up to the up to date chapters. I watched about the first ten episodes of the anime and stopped. One Piece obviously doesnt have the best animation but it shits all over Fairy Tail's tweenfest animation.

As for OP having bad animation, I did notice a drop after a certain point in the series however for a 600+ episode series you have to cut it some slack. It would be horrendously difficult to maintain a high quality of animation every week for 14+ years. Its not like they were just bumming off 25 eps and saying goodbye.

Yes it is very friends based and has the whole "oh wow he's dead..... loljks" element about it but for me thats a selling point. Its a world where they are on a pirate ship that is fuelled by cola which can shoot its "lets get the fuck out of here" cannon which is captained by a guy who is made of rubber. The last thing you should be looking for is realism. Its a light hearted show that can still change the audiences emotions only to have Luffy or another member come along and satisfy your craving for vengeance. If I wanted blood and death id go looking for another anime/manga but this one keeps you smiling and I like it for that reason

Whatever, One Piece is good, one of the best on-going shounen, but it isn't the best thing ever since sliced bread like OP says. Also,
>people tell me its trying too hard to be like Fairy Tail
It's your fault if you hang around with low powerlevel plebs.

Things i hate about one piece :

-Horrible body proportions. Not temporary ones for comedic effect, but pretty much every character has terrible body proportions. It makes everything look ridiculous....you know that screencap of xxxholic where the characters have super long legs? Yea its like that.

-Shit formulae for every island.

-Pretty much only 1 on 1 fights with the strawhats being matched up against opponents that they can perfectly counter, the only time group fights happen is against mooks or when the strawhats are getting their asses kicked by someone like an admiral or kuma to show how strong their opponent is.

-No character of any significance dies. Im tired of seeing strawhats fight opponents way out of their league, get smashed, then get lol rescued or left alive because "he's interesting...!!!" Whitebeard and Ace were background characters literally made to be killed for plot development. Sabo couldnt even stay dead, neither did bellamy.

-Really cliched lines like "That person...!!!" or repeating someone's full name for dramatic effect.

-People actually treat the strawhats seriously as pirates when all they do is sail from island to island beating bad guys and fighting marines. They have never done a single pirate thing in their life (such as attack a town or rob a ship). As it is, they are basically a gang of delinquets who pick fights with the cops.

-They never seem to have money problems despite not actually having any job besides fighting "bad guys" and having to maintain a ship.
>>
>>101678499
I can understand the other things but
>-People actually treat the strawhats seriously as pirates when all they do is sail from island to island beating bad guys and fighting marines.
This is the result of gubmint propaganda. Your average joe thinks that a guy with a 300 millions bounty is pretty much Bin Laden.
>-They never seem to have money problems despite not actually having any job besides fighting "bad guys" and having to maintain a ship.
They actually plunder their enemies.
>>
>>101678179

I know, and he wouldn't want to piss off Akainu because he will get burned.
>>
What if Eneru is the 3rd admiral?
Would it be a shocking experience?
>>
>>101678499
-Instead of interesting explanations for powers or strategies, there is way too much handwaving using "this guy is strong...!!!" as an excuse. Can cut a canonball with a sword? Was the sword special? Nope. Did the wielder have a devil fruit ability? Nope. He was strong. Thats it. Handwaving.

-Haki = reiatsu = powerlevel = chakra. Finding the weakness of a logia is no longer necessary....just increase your haki level to the point where you can hit him. Thats all you need.

-Robin/Nami serving as nothing more than blatant fanservice by dressing in revealing outfits (nami is practically in underwear all the time) and being pretty much useless in fights.

-Generic "i want to take over the world/get money/get power" one dimensional villains.

-Zoro always fights some sword guy, sanji always fight some martial arts guy, etc, etc...the pairings are so obvious and repetitive.

-Screaming attack names to warn your opponent in advance.

-Sword fights consist of people smashing their swords against each other, edge first.

-Almost everyone uses katanas instead of cutlasses.

-Guns and canons have zero relevance because everyone of note can just dodge bullets or shrug the shots off with ease. Despite their ineffectiveness, they are very common weapons. It would make more sense if they were only ineffective against logia and most characters had to be careful when facing guns.

-Islands with marine garrisons dont bother to station any marines at the port to check for pirates on board ships. So ships full of notorious pirates like the strawhats just sail in and nobody gives a fuck.

The body proportions is highly subjective. Oda's not going for realism at all. Calling it terrible is misnomer. I think maybe offputting is the word you were looking for.

Fair point although I think the details of each arc such as the story and locale design make up for a bland formula.

The series does have few group fights but having an enemy that requires more than one person to beat would be a little insulting to the Straw Hats involved. Although it seems like you haven't read Thriller Bark because there are a ton of group fights in that arc.

What is the point of death? To create some artificial danger factor? Usually defeat means something more than the loss of the fighter's life such as the death of friends or loss of their dreams. I really can't stand claims that call for more death in One Piece. This is just not that kind of series.

It appears you watch the anime...

The rob enemies all the time. They most likely don't plunder civilians because Nami kniws what it's like to save up all your cash and just taking it because you're stronger is wrong.
>>

>watching the One Piece anime
Go to hell.
>>
>>101673712
This. Out of all the filler arcs they could do, it never occurs to anyone to ask Oda for an outline of what occurred during the 2 year training gap, that they could then evolve into a complete training arc for each character?! Why not make filler that fills in the blanks, for once?! Stupid Toei.

>>101680952
The 2 year skip is a convienient way for Oda to pull things out of his ass and barely have to explain it. If he details it too much, he loses wiggle room.
>>
One Piece will have approximately 1000 episodes, if not more when it's over.
Conuting 20 minutes for each episodes, it will take a little les than 14 days of watching to go through it.
Is there anyone ITT that palns to watch it from the beginning once it's over? I am, but I'm knid of intimidated by it.

He used to make people believe he was God. There's no way he'd submit to the navy as on e of its officials. Maybe as a Shicibukai, but definetely not as a marine.
>>
>>101682262
bump
>>
>>101682333
Now I'm not saying that Eneru is an Admiral because that would be pure fanfiction, not speculation. All I'm saying is that experiences change people, look at Bellamy. I'm sure that if Oda wanted to make him an admiral he could give a valid reason to him wanting to be part of the Marines.
>>
>>101672159
Woa, watch out for that edge, you may hurt someone.
>>
I don't mind the anime but mostly because we watched with friends while skipping all of the filler. In all honesty its set up with horribly short episodes that are mostly consumed by a stupidly Long op followed by an overly long recap. Then the episode is cut short by a long ED and NEXT EPISODE. The actual sequence of events are entertaining brook was better before time skip but the anime just drags things out.
>>
>>101672539
Thriller Bark had amazing animation, albeit a slow pacing. It was a decent adaptation until around episode 400.
>>
>>101672678
nigga did you really just complain about kaiji's character designs
>>
>>101685245
You can't be serious. The long Openings came after they got rid of the Endings. And you can't skip all the filler, because it's everywhere inbetween actual content, that's how they adapt one chapter an episode or even less.
>>
>>101685387
>can't skip filler
We were watching it with someone who had already gone through everything. He wanted us to watch and skipped the vast majority of the filler for us. Also I'm not going to keep track of when ops and eds were longer or shorter. My point is the amount of actual episode was laughable. Yeah I know they want to keep it to 1 chapter an episode but it was still bad.
>>
>>101672159
I agree with you.

>>101685366
I was mearly giving an example, that I watch all type of shows. So I dont hate OP cause its different but purely cause its bad.

Punk Hazard was okay. So skip Fishmang Island and the filler. Then just watch Punk Hazard and Dressrosa.
