22 years ago, the legendary pirate Gol D. Roger, departed the world leaving behind the treasure One Piece for any who are worthy enough to find it. He who finds this treasure would be granted the title "Pirate King". Amazed by this news, the young Monkey D. Luffy sets out on a journey to find a group of pirate comrades, towards his goal of attaining One Piece and becoming the Pirate King. Based on the manga by Oda Eiichiro.
Once it gets into an Arc where everyone is doing a battle, the story progresses very slowly and once you catch up in episodes it gets even slower because you can't go to one episode to the next. ¬†There is a shit ton of flashbacks for every character nuance, they re-use a lot of their earlier art.
I wish they released 1 hour episodes and not 30 minutes, but that's too much work for once a week.¬†
Stop posting stupid review battles. ¬†You're wasting everyone's time here. ¬†If you don't like it put it into an actual review instead of hate spam. ¬†you know what I means like, rate the art and soundtrack and characters and explain why they aren't good. ¬†You can only really do this if you've watched the show which is the only time you should post a review. ¬†
Also, stop posting back at these fools because that only starts stupid wars like this. ¬†Everyone is being such a fanboy or hater that it is just stupid. ¬†If you like it write a good review, if you don't like it write a bad review, but explain why in either way. ¬†In any case stop posting stupid reviews that don't help anyone at all, there are forums for debating like this. ¬†You aren't posting anything constructive here. ¬†Go away. ¬†
I have to agree with¬†Scorpionking428 here.This is one of the most boring anime/manga i have ever seen which is drawn out for no reason at all.Plot is really childish like the Main Character wants to be the pirate King but doesn't have the balls to kill people and acts like a saint.I think what¬†Scorpionking428 was meant by Disney getting their pirates right is that Disney's pirates acts like pirates and doesn't act like Saints like Luffy does.
Also, He is right about no character development.Even after hundreds of episodes/chapters Luffy, still acts like a [email protected] Zoro has shown any character development.
I think the reason that One Piece has slow pacing is cause mangaka doesn't want to give up all the money it brings and wants to draw out this story as much as he can.Else there is no reason for him to bore his readers to death when the so called plot is really childish.Magi, a manga that make One Piece looks like Fairy Tail and has more depth and character development in every chapter than One Piece has in it's entire series doesn't bore it's readers for the sake of story.Every chapters of it's is entertaining.One Piece's mangaka really need to really from it's example.
¬†It's just the same story every arc, strawhats crew uncovers a truth that needs fixing, and main arc characters have tragic past, rinse and repeat and the worst part is that it's happening for 17+ years. ¬†
How about you scrubs actually try watching an anime series give it 1-2 episodes hell maybe even 10 episodes, if you don't like it after you watch it you don't. Instead all you little twats can do is cry over how much you hate a series when there are forums for this shit.
The show is good, there is character development YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE FUCKING SHOW TO SEE THAT.
It isnt' dragged out with retarded fillers like Naruto. The artwork improves, and the storyline progresses at a steady rate developing its own world rather than just a one shot hey we live in Tokyo 12 episodes later boy + girl date, or 12 episodes later, man or woman defeats evil entity show series ending.
These days fucking children can't appreciate a good storyline. I read a review below this saying "disney can get their pirates right but japan can't"
The fuck pirate has DISNEY ever gotten right? Peter Pans pirate was a fuckwad, Pirates of the Carribean pirates were mostly inspired by other books from a bunch of ¬†various reviews, and even though it was succesfull people don't seem to understand Japan wasn't a pirate nation, they were a feudal nation with many wars on land not sea. Japan isn't spread apart by the ocean to the point where they needed immense naval battles, though I'm sure there were some pirates it isn't their biggest forte.
Though who am I to say it's not like i research this shit. Then again if you really compared one piece to Pirates of the carribean or any other "pirate" shit, its just about the same with added super powers from a mythical fruit from the sea devil or whatever the premise was it's been too long to remember.
So again before you watse your time bitching about how you think a show is terrible, try watching the fucking series a bit it doesn't progress in five minutes it actually takes time to develop like a book would.¬†
Great series This might be the only long going series with a good plot, I know that arcs are basically a new enemy appeared and then defeat him type (normal shounen thing), but at the same time there is a lot more in this series. There are many secrets which are yet to be unravel and there is a long journey ahead. Plus, this series has episodes above 600 and just by watching even 100 episodes of this series a person can never predict its overall development. Art is average, but still it is not repetative. The animations seems to be ruined a lot lately, but the story is getting really interesting and amusing. It might be childish for some people, but still what is childish to begin with? We all watch anime even though many people think it is some lame Chinese cartoon for kids and it might be right for them, but for many of us these so called lame Chinese cartoons are lot more amusing than many of their so called good movies and dramas and sometimes¬†I do think that this series is kind of overrated just like Naruto, bleach, fairy tail and dbz.
