i still haven't dropped one piece but i came this close to dropping it so many times that i lost count.

the only reason i kept going is because of the shit load of praise it's getting from my friends, youtube etc...

since we're talking about the reasons on why this show bored the hell out of me to the point where i keep the video running and check my facebook until the story progresses let me just turn this into a rant on how boring one piece really is because it intrigues how can people love this show so much when i find it very average so let me find out more opinions about it from you guys.

alright the usopp arc was just garbage it took a lot of episode and it could have been done in 2 or 3, the art back then was unsightly and it felt like watching a cartoon made for 5 year olds.

but i kept watching and i came across the the barratie arc with sanji and zeff, the fights were average but sanji's story was beautiful and it had a lot of epic/emotional moments that kept me wanna watch more of one piece (the scene where sanji is leaving then remembers to say goodbye to zeff and he kneels before him and starts thanking him for everything, then we get zeff saying "you idiot real men part way without a word, let alone tears" so yeah this kind of epic moments is what got me through the boredom of one piece.

along arc was great only felt bored a few times but it kept things interesting. after finishing arlong i thought to myself one piece is only gonna get better from here on now and boy was i so wrong, let me just say this alabasta arc and the pre alabsta arcs were a piece of garbage i still can't believe i made it through all of that (at this point i almost dropped the show but kept going with 1 episode a day because it got utterly boring) do i even need to elaborate on this arc? oh god...vivi was a boring and un interesting character that i never cared about, the whole thing with crocodile and his plans took years to unravel, borroque works agents where hideously designed that i couldn't even come close to liking them, only mr1 was somewhat interesting and fun to watch. point is i barely got through this arc in the hopes of finding epicness oh and the encounter with ace i really did enjoy that. so the only things i enjoyed were zoro vs mr1 and the whole thing with cutting steel and the rhythm of objects, and the farewell to vivi when the strawhats turned their back and raised their hands. other then that this arc was a complete waste of my time it was just garbage



i also can't tolerate when there are some bullshit in the fight and there are a lot of bullshit, how the fucking does that chandolian guy from the skypea arc get so many injuries/ attack and still can stand up it just take him a little time thats all ,he used 2 dyles the normal one and the one thats said to kill the user but he lives on to get shocked like 3 times by eneru with over 300million volts he's still manages to be be perfectly fine only his skin seems to be darker then usual that's all. and i hate how they try to get you to worry about certain character dying as a form suspense but each time they live, eneru electrified the whole island including the blonde girl's father and the chandorian girl (they made this scene very dramatic) yet every single one lived despite the scene where they were electrified which was portrayed very dramatically and blown out of proportion. there's not need to mention this but skypea arc was just boring + bullshit with the never ending conversation and the events that never seem to pick up...complete waste of my time.

i'l rant more about one piece if i get replies to show some of you actually read all this haha
P.S: im currently in the thriller bark arc so no spoilers please :)
oh and if you can convince me otherwise or state your own opinion i would love to hear some earnest and elaborate responses on why you've enjoyed these arcs or at least thought of them as watchable. lastly pardon any typos or missing words i didn't double check, thank you.

You shouldn't watch anything you don't like because if you don't enjoy then there is no point and that way you will only feel contempt towards the series and that will only grow non-endlessly. No shame if One Piece isn't for you, to each his own.

I've only watched a FEW episodes, not enough to really even have an opinion on the show, but it just seems like the typical shounen anime to me. Like Bleach or Naruto.

This. I stopped Gintama just because I don't like it.
Don't let people tell you what you want...and I'm telling this even though I'm hooked to OP for like 8 years already and still going.

well i think that invested so much time in this series that can't easily drop it because iv grown to like the characters and the atmosphere and i would hate for all this potential to go to waste so i get really frustrated when stupid/boring things occur in one piece.

If you will put it that way then I say go for it. You really don't lose anything anyways

There's always going to be slow, boring parts in a super long anime. Just gotta keep going like you have been. lol
Unless you really don't like it anymore, then continuing isn't worth it.

Dislikes One Piece because of supposed bullshit moments during fights

Has an avi of Attack On Titan where the main character gets eaten and somehow turns into a titan because of his "will to survive"



A big ******* K for you sir

Sorry can't bring myself to read long posts but I saw that you are at Thriller Bark, it would be really cruel to yourself if you stopped at that arc. It's in between the Water 7/Ennies Lobby arc (my personal favorite) and the ********** arc (most legendary OP arc). Thriller Bark has some funny and cool moments but it was really boring overall for me. I'm not the sorta of guy who feels the need to convince everybody to watch his favorite show but trust me Thriller Bark is not where you'd wanna stop watching One Piece. I heard some people even skip that arc sometimes.

I never could get into One piece. I dropped naruto and never really bothered to watch bleach. And since naruto and bleach's manga are ending pretty soon, I guess this year is turning out to be better than imagined.

Bleach-the anime- is already over. I haven't heard anything about them animating the last arc of the manga yet.
And as far as Naruto goes, I don't think Shippuden should have ever been made. I want my ninjas to be little chuunin's again.

It's a long-running shounen battle manga/anime, you know what you're getting yourself into well enough to avoid pointing out the obvious.
