He who finds this treasure would be granted the title "Pirate King". Amazed by this news, the young Monkey D.

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.
This is mostly for people who haven\'t already become a fan.
If your a fan already you don\'t need to read any further as you\'ve made up your mind.
One Piece has a massive set of lovers and haters, many started watching the series young and unlike pokemon which hasn\'t grown with it\'s viewers One Piece does. The downside is that it takes a huge while to get into, I\'ve had friend tell me \"oh it gets good after episode 250\" and frankly I haven\'t had time nor the will to get that far and it\'s not really an anime you can just jump into the middle of, I don\'t want to give spoilers to explain this but it\'s hard to do.
So the pros and cons of this anime.
It\'s long, I don\'t think it\'s going to end anytime soon.
Characters are very well done.
Comic relief is great
Fights are Dragon Ball Kind of Epic
Getting into it is so dam hard, partly because of the Pros list.
Animation is just dire, sadly as with Naruto the animation only gets worse with time, this is a big disappointment, however if it is a issue the manga is just as good.
The manga is better, seriously I\'ve watched some of the newer episodes they are slightly animated frames from the manga that drag on for 20 minutes for something which you could read in 5 minutes.
Overall, 3/5 animation takes it down a huge chunk for me as Anime is about the animation, the strong characters and stories keep it afloat however and die hard fans are always around.
ONE PIECE!!!!! This one of my favorite anime,i grew up watching one piece its has great characters and a good story.Its about a 19 year-old named luffy who wants to be the king of the pirates and fine the greatest treasure of all time : one piece,deeper in the story he meets people who join his crew and sail with and have great adventures with.The main characther monkey d. luffy is when of my favorite anime characters he\\\'s funny and powerful he has beaten many foes and foes that can break you with a single punch. Its has good action and good humor and in my opinion thats what anime needs somtimes.Some anime try to do both but fail but this anime has the best of both. The other characters are good to for examples roronoa zoro the swordsman. just like luffy he has dream and that is to be the greatesand the strongest swordsman in the world ! zoro is also a funny character when he argues with the cook,sanji.Sanji is the cook he makes the best food for everone on the ship and he\\\'s very powerful too and he fights with he\\\'s feet a master kickerhis dream is to see the all blue where the the fish all over the world is in one place.

One Piece is the longest anime I´ve ever watched. Though I´m still watching this dragged out, on-going pirate adventure it has never been boring. Everything about this anime is probably been said already but I simply have to say it myself. This is the best anime I have ever watched!
The manga is fine but I´m not reading it. I find it difficult to read because of all the pictures and text in every page. Its to crowded in my opinion. But the overdrawn manga gives the anime much to work on which is very good. This reduces the amount of fillers and keeps the story on-going. The anime producers does a splendid job making episodes every week and they manage to surprise me every time. The anime is original, exciting, humorous and well-drawn.
But what I find most impressive is the story. The story is mostly about a crew being formed by their captain Monkey D. Luffy who strikes to be the greatest of all pirates. The crew goes through hardship, pain, joy, happiness and an unbreakable bond of friendship. They show true meaning of friendship and what true strength is. This doesnt even cover one fifth of it, but it would take too long to describe everything this story has to offer. If you love fighting and humor, combined with adventure and friendship you will definitly like this anime. Though this is a fight-based anime, it will not contain love. This can be hard to accept though i find it fitting for this anime. It doesnt really have any obvious pairs and it wouldnt be needed in my opinion. Though you miss it sometimes, the anime has so many other great values. If this sounds interesting to you, do give it a try. Take your time watching it and enjoy this great masterpiece Eiichiro Oda has to offer. I guarantee a good experience !
