Umm One Piece is more popular in Japan right now. I'm assuming that you are talking about the US dub. It's only the America dub that is generally directed to a younger audience. In fact, the Japanese one has a lot of adult situations that are not appropriate to younger age groups. That's why OP had the major edits to it.

Naruto is only attracting a larger target audience outside of Japan because it has less edits with more references to sex and alcohol. All references in OP have been completely removed by 4kids entertainment. Your information is skewed toward an American viewpoint because of the media here. Although Naruto is popular, it has not risen to the level that OP has achieved worldwide.

In regards to simpleness, the only thing I see in the story for OP is maybe the drawing style for the anime. The quality of the artwork is a lot higher in the manga and both storylines have the general idea about friendship.

Yay, Jamehze, thanks that was what I was trying to say. . . .Naruto is great and has a lot of followings but One Piece in itself, is also a great higher quality (only by my opinion anyway) anime. . .

ONE PIECE. . .by the way, Sanji with a lolipop major edit. . .LOL I hate 4KIDS they totally ruin one of the best animes ever. . .plus all the jokes and puns that One piece has 4kids had to edit them cause the contents weren't good for kids. . .the drinking and smoking in One Piece is like all over compare to Naruto. . .And the sexual innuedos that Sanji and some other pirates always crack me up. . . .by the way, One Piece Jokes are superior to Naruto if you watch the japanese version. . .

maybe im stupid but i dont find naruto predictable at all (a couple of people mentioned that) . case in point Naruto manga 343, you can predict who's going to win (its fun betting on it) but you dont really know what's going to happen because there are so many twists and turns. and i have seen One Piece manga. whoever said its artwork is higher quality, well i just want to say that's total bollocks imo.

so naruto still gets my vote.

One Piece. Naruto is probably more popular than one piece because it didn't get dubbed by 4kids. Get them to do it and one piece will overtake them in no time.

Well, I have to disagree,

One Piece has been the most popular manga in Japan for several years running. This quote is from http://www.brainfart.org/naruto/anime/anime.htm (Toriyama World's Naruto site). Naruto, a ninja manga series by Kishimoto Masashi, began in Weekly Jump #43, 1999. Since then, it has become one of the most popular series in Jump, giving One Piece a run for its money in popularity. Meaning it is not more popular.
And you're also wrong about internationally. It is extremely popular in European countries such as Germany, France, and Italy.

One Piece's plot twists are undeniably better. For those who have claimed Naruto was more unpredictable, Naruto isn't that unpredictable at all. It's very straightforward and explains with no real twists. With the whole Sasuke situation in the story right now, I would definitely wouldn't call this a "twist". Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke were all modeled after the Legendary 3 anyway, everyone saw it coming. Naruto and Jiraiya, Sasuke under Orochimaru, and Sakura and her medical stuff under Tsunade, although I think its kind of too late to give Sakura any kind of way to get rid of her "useless" title (but maybe this hurricane Series will change my image of her)
Hardly anyone saw it coming when Robin joined the Strawhats, and even less would've thought that Luffy would even accept her. She was one of the main villains in the arc afterall, Mr. 2 has a better chance at joining the Strawhats than her. Water7 Arc anyone? CP9 was definitely unpredictably shocking. It even reduced hopes of two characters chances as staying/becoming a main character. Changing our previous perception of that Arc altogether.

One piece is better . Reason, its creativity is almost limitless , the laughter, the serious situations, the bizareness, its so a absurd yet so amusing. Oda took a gamble by leaving the traditional art style and producing something wacky yet amusing to no extent. The fights might be cartoony, but you still have the feel of a serious situation cause the pain the villains usually caused others, you want their asses to be kicked. The comradeship and the unlimited trust/respect/loyalty the straw hat crew shows to each other is almost enough to make a cold bastard like me melt. Comparing it to naruto, sakura for instance is just damn annoying, theres almost nothing to love about her, Sasuke is a pretty flat character actually as well. And Naruto is more annoying then funny, while luffy is just funny and when he needs to be , he's also cool . Of course naruto is also great at times, but too many times its mediocre and sometimes even bad. Naruto lives off the fights, while one piece is even great when absolutely nothing happens and the crew is just chillin on going merry .

Okie, I am bias so I'll stop my babbling now. . .But I had to take exception to those peeps out there who can't appreciate something like one piece due to its appearances and bias. . .You can never judge a book by its cover. And those of you are interested I need to tell you to at least watch up to episode 30 and if you still don't like it. . .You'll never will. . .But to those who do. . .It gets better and better as each arch is being drawn and animated.

I watched a lot more of One Piece than I did Naruto. I think the art in Naruto is better than OP, but I think the stories in OP were more interesting. Eh. Whatever. I stopped watching both altogether cause I never REALLY got into it. -0-;; But, if I had to pick between the two, it'd be One Piece. ^^;

Oda sensei took a gamble by drawing one piece different from the usual animes because he wanted a fresh look which he got. . .Only people aren't use to this so they coined this anime, cartoonish and not up to par with, example, Naruto (which all fans have to admit that the art in itself is not consistent. One episode great and the next horrible.) and Blood+. (Oh well, you get what I mean.) Anyway, once you watch One Piece you will get use to it because it is a world different from others and it has its own story therefore the style is unique and that is why it is still one of the top selling Manga and Anime in Japan and worldwide. . .Except here in the U.S due to 4KIDS raping it and cutting it up. . .I will never forgive them.
