It's too bad One Piece didn't get picked up by a better anime studio.


The Toei animation was fine up until the Marineford arc. After that point the pacing became excruciatingly slow and the animation quality dipped significantly. It used to be that we got filler arcs whenever they got close to catching up with the manga, but it's like they don't care anymore because they know people will watch it regardless.

So, we're now stuck with a five minute intro and a five minute recap followed by a half chapters worth of content in each episode, with Toei putting forth as little effort as possible. I'll still watch it because the manga has a lot of moments that I want to see animated, but I feel really bad for anyone who's following the series via the anime exclusively.


True.I still watch the anime too.


I just hear it all the time from the fandom how Toei sucks and the anime is terrible. They wish a better anime studio took One Piece. It's rather sad.

The anime has certainly gotten slower than it used to be. For my tastes it still ranks pretty high compared to the rest of the 50+ shows airing this season. They would have run out of material at least 3 years ago if they animated a chapter per episode.

There are four main anime models:

1. 1-cour. Cour means season for anime. 11-13 episodes are made, without plans for continuing. Only if there's a very good response will a second airing be planned, and it will usually be at least one year later.

2. multi-cour. Either because the show performed well in a previous cour, or there's just that much hype about it. Sometimes if there's an extreme reaction very early into the first cour a show might become a 2-cour, or be scheduled for multi cour in coming years. If the studio can handle it on their schedule it might become a 2-cour without interruption.

3. Non-stop. The series is doing so well overall (could be combination of anime and manga, other goods) that the people in charge, including the TV networks themselves, the producing companies, (often) the publishers of the source material, and investors in all of those want to see a product reliably controlling space. When a show's between seasons, usually interest/sales die down until closer to the next season. Keeping a show running all the time (if the fans allow it, and they usually do) produces consistent revenue, maintains control of the timeslot, gives the network and advertisers a "guaranteed" 30 minutes of valuable programming and reliable merchandise.

4. OVAs come out randomly.

Toei clearly is using the third option.

While I would prefer a faster paced show, at least there's always something reliable to watch with this model, and there's no worry about a show going on break and never coming back.

I still love one piece. I’m always excited for new episodes and chapters. I burned out on naruto and bleach years before they came to an end, but have never experienced burnout with one piece

Abandon the anime, follow the manga. I only ever read One Piece because I wanted to catch up as fast as I could. The only OP media I've watched were the movies.

Today's episode was one of the best I have ever seen lmao

I don't read manga because i can never get into it but I hear it doesn't always elaborate on fight scenes which are not between two heavy weights etc. But honestly I need the eye candy or it would just be awful to me. Idk why I like to read books but comics and manga are always kinda anticlimactic to me.


either way I think the best thing to do is just take a few months to a year off or wait for the arc to end then find some website that tells you how to skip the filler and just go for it that way. Its how I watched Shippuden which was i would say a 6.5-9/10 depending on the arc or episode for me personally when I did this. Prior to me doing this I think i felt it was net 3-4/10.


I think one thing anime fans don't often get is a story which really gets to explore whatever the writer wants and feels will improve the story because its so hard to stay running. But the few shows that do stay running long enough to really explore the universe they create often get bogged down by filler. I honestly can't think of an anime which doesn't fall into those two categories.
