Every other anime I watch is in full screen except OP. Anybody know what the problem could be?

Is it really a matter of being "full screen" or just the aspect ratio? Older shows (and older episodes of of One Piece) would have been created for viewing on standard TVs at the time. So now when you see them on contemporary display screens and tvs they'll be more "square" with wide black borders on the side.

Is that what's happening?

Yeah sorry, I should of used the right word for what was happening. Yes it is the aspect ratio. Is there any way to fix it? It isn't a big deal just wondering.

I believe you can change the aspect ratio in-app (at least on 360), or through your TV, but I would suggest against that, because you'd be watching the show wrong. I'd suggest just getting used to the idea of pillarboxing.

Those older episodes were produced with a 4:3 ratio, rather than 16:9 widescreen. For being able to see all of the video, you will have to live with black bars on the right and left side.
