I'm asking this because I don't really know many One Piece fans myself and everyone I talk to watches Naruto I can guarantee that most people you talk to that like anime will point out naruto first. So do you think Naruto Shippuden is more popular than One Piece now or on the same level or even less popular than one piece. Look forward to what you guys think.

no not really, I never really got into Naruto so I don't really know what appeal it has, I still watch it though just to kill time and make jokes but never really seriously. One Piece was always more my thing with the silly style comedy.

Maybe only now with Naruto getting powered up big time pretty soon, but I'm also a realist knowing it took 400+ episodes to get good enough to watch. I've watched since episode 1 (my discovery of anime) and didn't find the series THAT good, but now that it's starting to get exciting for viewers. Not long before the series may end, but it's good now.

One Piece has never been more popular than Naruto worldwide, I think. But in Japan... One Piece >>>>>>>>>> the rest.

I think we need to make a poll for which of the Big 3 people watch.

Sadly I think there are more One Piece fans, even worldwide. The reason for this is that most people enjoy watching crap, especially when it comes to the younger viewers, which are most often the target audience. This isn't just OP hate, it's something I've come to understand over time. Naruto has it's crap too (even fillers aside), but giving honest criticism I would rate Naruto better than Bleach and OP.

Chrome is right about OP owning all in Japan. The manga sales numbers are rather absurd, and the anime gets really good ratings too.

I'll put this out there:

http://myanimelist.net/anime/1735/Naruto:_Shippuuden
Watching = 72,929
Rank = 547

http://myanimelist.net/anime/21/One_Piece
Watching: 50,808
Rank = 57

So basically, more people that report their viewing on MAL are watching Shippuuden, but they are less satisfied with it as a group than One Piece viewers.

Naruto Shippuuden is so boring, always FILLER and not funny anymore! Always serious talking and Sasuke is making me crazy,stupid brat! One Piece is far interesting and funny!
