I do not think there are any spoilers in this, but to be safe I am on episode 365 so perhaps you can decide if you wish to continue reading..but..(actually, there are so I will put spoiler tags)

Does this anime get better? I really enjoyed it up until

it's a very inconsistent anime. it has fluctuating ups and downs cycles like the economy.

The arc (Summit War) after the thriller bark arc is pretty good, imo. And now, the latest arc is just... very dragged... slow paced and annoying in general. Like I don't want to know the history of Rebecca or those little people, I don't care about them. lol.

It gets better and it gets worse. The Marineford Arc for example is extremely filled with action and drama. On the other hand Punk Hazard almost feels like an anti-drug PSA.

Yeah, usually I do not hate or anything, but I have invested a lot of time; I do not wish to continue it if it's going to drag and focus more on dumb humor. In the beginning, regardless of the humor, the battles were good. Now, they incorporate so much humor in the battles that it really just ruins it. I don't know, I feel like the humor was spot on in the beginning and now it's just..forced?

I don't know, perhaps I am aging to be a bitter old man?

It definitely gets better. I do agree that Thriller Bark is one of the less impressive major arcs of One Piece. I've gone back and rewatched through many portions of One Piece, but Thriller Bark is the one arc that I've never gone back to. I may watch it again when I pick up Funimation's One Piece Collection set whenever the Thriller Bark episodes get released like that, but that's just to hear it in english.

It's made all the worse in that Thriller Bark follows what I consider one of the best, if not the best, arcs in all of One Piece. Ennies Lobby.

It gets pretty serious after Thriller Bark though. It's hard to say this without spoiling anything, but lets just say One Piece gets a bit more morbid and darker starting the arc after Thriller Bark.
