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.
One Piece is one of the bigger animes and has 600+ episodes out and still not being close to the end. It's about a boy around 17 years named Luffy D Monkey that set sail as a pirate to find the legendary treasure, left by the infamous pirate Gold Roger, which has the same name as the title of the anime; One Piece. Along the way Luffy meet people who join his crew, explore all kinds of islands and fight people that stands in his way. Even though Luffy is a pirate he's actually quite friendly and help people around the world.
The anime have been going on for 14 years and reflect that in the animations were you can cleary see age of the first episodes, but that doesn't take away from the series. However in the later years every female that is somewhat important to the plot hvae huge boobs and slender bodies, which looks quite odd. Also the general childrens heads has grown big.
The soundtrack for One Piece could be described with one word: Epic. It fills it role in enhancing the moments of heat, but also when they're just goofing around.
The series still has it's flaws. One of them is that some side-plots feels like they just get abandoned in the middle of it, leaving you wanting more of that in a bad way. I would also like to point out that the series get really drawn out later on, which can sometimes be frustrating. They would maybe do good for One Piece to have some fillers so they can pick up the pace again. The lsat thing about one piece worth mentioning is that in the close to live episodes it seems like the crewmembers have started to lose some of their "charm" and I really hope that it will not continue, as that would ruin the comedy part of One Piece.
In the end I would rate One Piece 3.5 out of five (rounded up to four on the star rating) At this point it can become better, but there's also a risk of it falling a little more.
One piece was one of the very first Anime after Dragonball that I watched. It was once my favourite Anime, but since seeing other Anime like Hunter x Hunter 2011 and specially after reading the manga of One Piece I couldnt ignore the flaws of the Anime. My main concern is the boring and low Animation that hinder One Piece to shine, the soundtracks are top notch but there is a lot of filler stuff added. Filler are generally ok but if you make a canon Fight longer by adding filler in it and letting Luffy seem much weaker the he really is ( Hody was beaten in 3 frames in the Manga after crasing into the noah, in the Anime he managed to outspeed Luffy and imake it seem like he is an hard opponent lol ) the as a One piece fan I wont like it. If Madhouse would do the One piece Anime it would deserve more than 5 stars but thats sadly not the case....
But If you dont like reading Manga at all then I recommend watching One piece, but the Manga is in my opinion the better choice, even though I normally prefer Anime over Manga ( Hunter x Hunter 2011 by Madhouse)
One of the best anime ever
One Piece is one of the best anime ever . The start is not very good but the story gets better with time and you will fall in love with this anime after first 50 episodes . Many people dont like to start it because of the 600+ episodes but believe me , all those episodes are truly worth a watch . It has one of the best drama in any anime i have seen till now . It has loads of epic scenes , awesome fights , awesome comedy etc .... Watch it . Its truly awesome .
i know what you are thinking by watching the first few episodes but believe me, i promise you that you will fall in love with this anime after first 40 episodes. at the beginning it would seem like old school animation work, well it is.
since its been on broadcast since 1999, for past 14 years its been on air and named best action and fun filled anime ever. the animation gets better little by little as you keep watching.
