Note: I have not watched One Piece since like 2006 or 2007. I have also only read bits and pieces of the Manga, nothing fully through.


That said: I am a bigger fan of Manga usually. But that is perhaps I like reading more. But everyone has their own tastes obviously.


Since people in the west don't buy as much manga/anime as in Japan and do most of it online, I'd recommend the anime on here for your first time experience, but after you become a fan switch to the manga, but its your choice, If you choose the manga route, I recommend the physical volumes over the websites because there scans don't get good until Thriller Bark range like I said above.

ok to make it easier lol XD, just watch all of part 1 in the anime then switch to the manga in the Fishman Island of part 2, part 1 of One Piece ends at episode 516.

So the anime is good all the way to 516? XD then I might as well finish up to 635 having gone that far.

So I'll watch the anime first, then read the manga from the beginning.

I like reading the manga from the start despite watching it already - so it's good.

Yes it does stick to the manga, however the pace is sometimes slow in the anime which does tend to get annoying.


Btw im watching Gintama, what episode does it get good? or consistently funny and enjoyable?

The early episodes are kind of rocky for gintama. (I disliked the first two episodes that is fully filler)

I don't remember when it fully hooked me. But once it does, it's a non-stop trip of fun for me.

The popularity of the One Piece manga has a huge influence on the Anime. The Anime eventually moves to a "frame by frame" adaptation of the Manga after a certain point. It's just so popular, that's all the work they need to put into it. Now of course you have plenty of Anime-only related things, including a few filler arcs(which are horrible, they barely ever fit into One Piece at all)

Overall however, the main problem with the Anime tends to be it's timing. The Arc people get talking about is an extended arc in which the Crew are reoccupied with a huge string of events. So around 100+ episodes are dedicated to it, with little to no room for filler episodes. So the pacing get a little wack around there, with "Alternate Reality Filler Episodes" popping up a few times out of shear need.

Being able to marathon it however, stick to the Anime. You can go to the Manga if you wish, but I didn't. I didn't feel the need to jump into the Manga side of things, as the Anime is an accurate portrayal.

Despite this problem and the fillers, the anime is enjoyable you'll say?

The anime is enjoyable. It just takes time. Plus the anime is on adult swim at 1am in English but it's on the water 7 arc which is far ahead from the beginning. I'm enjoying it both in English and Japanese after time :D

Another anime that took a lot of time for me. I had to make time for Hunter x Hunter 2011 after I couldn't take the cheesiness of the first arc and dropping it. Picked up after the past two years and ohhhhhh it's good. It's better than Naruto Shippuden

Watch the Anime then hop over to the manga to get to good parts that the anime hasn't covered, or I don't know how your time schedule is but if you can kill two birds with one stone, Watch during the day and read during the night. personally I didn't watch anything but One-Piece for 3 whole months, 600+ episodes. No Regrets. Don't worry about the OP fillers they're not that bad unlike the Naruto series fillers (Which are a waste of time). For the manga I'm in the same boat as you I have yet to start it but want to but me personally I'm a completionists so I want to start from the beginning to see if I missed anything that the anime didn't include. The manga is currently at Volume 70 here at the states either way which ever you pick they're both going to take about 2-3 months to complete.

OR

You can watch the anime by itself and sometime in the later future if you ever decide to re-live the series instead of re-watching it you can pick up the manga because it might be a pain read and watch at the same time since you'll be reading/watching the same story. ( I reccomend this route)

Well it doesn't really matter, One Piece is a series that will make you want to reread and watch over and over, now its on Crunchyroll!! which makes this process alot easier, rather than resorting to illegal sites or Hulu ads lol, so yea if ur a first time viewer go with the anime, but once your a fan in the end it doens't matter, but to point out the pacing of the anime gets bad once part 2 begins because the animators didnt want to catch up with the manga, so in part 2 the manga is alot better but the anime is good, for instance Dressrosa is pretty cool in the anime so far, but I'm mainly on the manga daily now. Although I am pumped to rewatch Part 1 on here again!

Thanks for your thought. It's jsut Im not one to stop an anime once I watch. So even if its slows down in part 2, Ill still watch.

And I plan to do both, so I won't miss out.
