Should I watch One Piece?

Recommended Posts

So I want to know some things first:

Have you or are you watching One Piece?

Do you like it?

Should I watch it?

I am kind of on the edge but over like 700 Eps. I want to know if its worth it, like naruto you had to have patients to get into the good stuff or bleach...

In order...

Yes.

Yes.

That depends. I've been watching it for a pretty long time now and I love it, but it can be a bit repatative. Every Arc pretty much starts out the same. New place, big baddy and his crew, each Straw member fights a person on that crew. There are little differences here and there, but I think that's what keeps me coming back. After awhile you start to enjoy the character progression that each Straw Hat brings to the crew, making each one of them vital to the shows progression. Anyway, this is just me. I think the show is awesome and I'm going to watch it until the very last episode.

Just as he said, One Piece is great, every episode matters and entertaining. I'm at episode 719 and it's still entertaining, the plot is still growing though.

I personally cannot stand One Piece. It's more than clear that it's doing everything Bleach did that got it cancelled, but it's getting away with it. It takes about 100 episodes just to get all it's characters introduced, back stories done, and finally try to move to forward, only to take steps backward with stupid amounts of filler episodes. Also, I can't help but feel like the more recent episodes and the manga as well, are just trying to see how crazy they can get before people finally say enough is enough. I feel like any passion for the show has long since been left behind, because 21 years of working on it's manga, and 19 years of working on the show has drained people who have been a part of it for too long. A lot of people don't see what I see, but a lot of people also take a look at everything through biased eyes, where as I try to look at the show subjectively, and with that in mind, I cannot recommend it to anyone.

@Greeneyes-san, here are my answers according to the order of your questions.

  1. I was watching One Piece, and I got up to 100 episodes. But I had to drop it since my exams are basically in 15 days and it's a miracle I'm typing this reply right here and now.
  2. Yeah, it is pretty cool.
  3. The beginning may seem boring, with the pirate stuff and all, but when you force yourself to watch the first ten episodes or so, you start to like it. If you're patient enough to watch boring pirate-ish stuff for about 240 minutes, I'll highly recommend it for you. If not, well, have you tried Himouto! Umaru-chan or K-On yet? Both are awesome, and I'd highly recommend those if you enjoy comedy anime.

Edit: Oh wait, I just realized that you're done watching about 700 episodes. Oops, my bad!

This is a good question. One Piece is an amazing anime since it's an adventure anime with humor added to it. I am having second thoughts though because the anime is soooo long and I find it hard to catch up with animes. Not to mention that I might get bored with watching a long anime despite of how the anime develops.
