I like naruto's art style better but one piece has a better plot(even though it has seven hundred episodes) so one piece is my choice (currently on ep 58)

There's a reason One Piece is the #1 best-selling manga in the world (and has remained so for the last 7 years) and recently broke a Guinness World Record for the comic series with most number of copies sold.

The plot is undoubtedly OP's strongest area next to characters. Anyone who has truly paid attention to the series will realize the amount of intricacy put into the events of the OP world, and how they inter-connect with each other. I will need several pages to go over it in detail, but I will refrain from doing so.

One Piece also has a wider variety of characters with new ones gracing the screen for each new location. Just about every personality you could think of is covered, and the several dreams, goals and motivations of the characters intersect to create an intriguing tale. The Strawhats are the star of the show and will probably be the first mentioned when it comes to bonds shared among characters. Some of the series' best moments are simply the Strawhats interacting with each other, and each is so unique in appearance and personality you can't help but be entertained by their antics. Each Strawhat also has an emotional backstory that fuels attachment to them, and some are among the saddest in fiction. The secondary characters also carry great import and are no less memorable. From the Shichibukai to the Admirals to the Yonkou and Supernovas, there is much variety to be found. The characters fuel the funniest moments as well as the saddest. Naruto also has great characters, but many are relegated to the back seat and fan favourites hardly get any time to shine. There are of course many characters that have moving stories, but those in One Piece outshine them in both number and impact.

The setting also allows for greater variety than Naruto simply due to the premise. Each new land has a fair amount of focus and the exotic locations fuel the sense of adventure. Each land has unique features that distinguish them in memory. The different levels of advancement on the islands also allow for variety in items and weaponry. The organization and balance of power also gives a greater air of stability than Naruto. The Marines, Shichibukai and Yonkou and each affiliated organization pose the greatest challenge any protagonist could face, "you against the world!" Naruto allows for little variety in location due to its structure, and time spent in other places allows for little exploration. I am yet to see anyone even contest that Naruto could possibly be better than OP in that regard.

Next is the variety of genres provided. One Piece provides a healthy dose of both comedy and sadness. Some of the funniest moments of all time in anime can be found there, and conversely, so also can some of the saddest. This contributes to one of the biggest reasons why people love the series. It can be seen on polls of both the funniest and saddest series, while Naruto just doesn't offer enough to compare. One Piece also has a strong mystery and suspense component. Everything from the Poneglyphs, Ancient Weapons, Void Century, Will of D, Raftel, Revolutionary army, Devil Fruits and the mystery of the One Piece itself keeps you coming for more.

I do not care so much for the more superficial aspects, colour, soundtrack, animation etc, as they tend to be more subjective and fruitless in discussion, but I will say that Naruto has many great tracks (Girei, Orochimaru's theme, Heavy Violence, etc), and so does OP (Difficult, Overtaken, etc). I don't really prefer one artstyle over the other as each suits the respective series well. Both have inconsistent animation due to the nature of long-runners, but I'd say Naruto is better when it comes to the best moments of both series.

I can't stand one piece. Before people start saying that I don't know what I'm talking about or that I didn't give it a chance just know that I stopped reading one piece around chapter 325 so I have a great deal of understanding about the show. I stopped watching, not because the plot was bad, but because the fighting was all over that place and there was so many characters that it kept introducing and following. I literally found myself skipping full page of fights because I only wanted to read about the fights that really mattered and the whole think felt like a filler. As soon as I started skipping pages I had to convince myself to stop because no manga deserves to be treated like that.
Anyways I think my point was that I hate One Piece.

Both have their flaws, but they're both cool. What I don't like about Naruto are the post-Pain arcs and as for One Piece the new arc, Dressrosa, which feels kind like Alabasta all over again. Heck, Marineford was way better than that and the Fishman Island saga.


I feel like Oda is trying to show parallels?

One Piece is far better overall imo. At least the main character isn't trying to find his estranged friend that only tried to murder him a few times.

Is really not for you,

its good on logical reasonings, lessons in life, their hilariousness bcos laughter is entertaining and lively, some lessons are also related to our daily lives so I can relate to it.

I personally not looking on fight scenes, it's how the plot goes on, the story telling and how the characters can relate to the other.

Indeed they add characters the whole time but I can relate to them since they can relate to the characters around them and they can keep the lively atmosphere.

OP is not for you

If you like serious and cool fights, serious plot why dont u try dgrayman or shaman king or soul eater

No, its not the level of seriousness that I don't like about it. It's how it lays out the fights. I just don't like how wishy wash the perspective is. Like I'm okay with a few fights going on at the same time but the way OP does it just drives me nuts because it'll have like 3 chapters for one fight then 3 chapters of a random flash back and then it'll skip back to a fight that was happening 20 chapters ago. I don't know if its because I read it that it bored me to death but I just can't stand OP in any state now.

GO to www.mangapanda.com OR www.mangareader.net and see by yourselves .the most popular manga in the entire world is #1 Naruto ,#2 Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage , #3 Bleach then one piece. END of the discussion .
One piece is a repetitive stories has no interest main plot even the comedy is annoying most of the time and Oda just drawing boobs to make the best selling manga.
