I was wondering if anyone thought One Piece might lose he #1 spot if Oda doesn't come out with a hit like Marineford or something of the likes. And please no spoilers past Water 7 that's what I'm on, and I've just heard Dressrosa is pretty bad.

Dressrosa isn't bad at all it just feels like it drags a little because it splits the plot into at least three different groups and switches between them. One of which is a fighting tornament that Luffy isn't even fighting in half the time. So for those of us caught up and watching it week after week it got a little aggravating having our episode for the week go by and barely anything of note happening. But if you aren't even there yet you can watch it at your own pace.

I doubt it all hit manga's/Anime have their dry period's ,One Piece will endure. Besides everyone will stick around to see what happens at the end of the Dessrosa arc. What will happen to the country of Dessrosa? ,Daflamingo? ,Law? ,The Royal Family of Dessrosa? ,what will the Revolution army do after the battle is over? ,will Dragon make a early apperence? Most importantly what will be the next arc? So fans are going to want to know what will come next. That's what One Piece is its a story that keeps you wanting more and has a twist at every turn.

I actually think Dressrosa is the best arc so far.

Why would you make a thread like this if you're not even caught up with the current arc?

It gets better. Plus everyone has their own individual tastes.

I don't think so because every manga has its stale points it's just a matter of if it'll endure. The fights with the emperors that are bound to happen in the future are going to raise sales for sure just because of how long fans have been waiting for these fights. Also, I've seen some people compare some of the arcs such as Dressrosa=Alabasta 2.0, so maybe we'll have the last arc be Marineford 2.0

I think one piece will stay at the top for quite awhile. Dressrosa isent bad either imo anyway.

Dressrosa is a very good arc. Very long, but very good. The frequent breaks don't help (I'm totally fine with it though, his health comes first), also, Oda has been juggling a LOT of characters too (some of which aren't that great to be honest).

Also, I think most people have been waiting for that amazing, multi-chapter, top class fight (e.g. the often mentioned Luffy/Lucci). I'm sure that this arc's finale will deliver though and don't forget the post-arc fallout. Should be good!

Dressrosa arc in the manga is alright. the anime its god awful dont even watch it unless you enjoy entire episodes on Rebecca and different angles of her tits and body. i give the manga 6/10 for the arc. for the anime 3/10. it could be better if toei wasn't doing the adaptations
thus far that is

Not any time soon. One Piece ships 4 million copies a volume. They usually sell over 3 million weeks after they go on sale. Nothing even comes close to that.

OP did sell well the last 5 years, but I don't like Dressrosa or the post-timeskip that much. I feel like it went from a great "best seller" to an average "best seller".

People do realize that One Piece sales went down in this arc and the last one right? but not that much to even be surpassed by upcoming mangas, so no, one piece will still sell despite of having shitty arcs

The latest volume has sold over 2.9 million copies, so its basically in line with the sales it was having before. The Dressrosa Arc isn't shitty but I'd definitely feel like I was purposely subjecting myself to torture if I watched the arc in the anime. Spreading one chapter into a full episode? I've got better things to do with my time.

Granted, the One Piece anime has been like this since the Thriller Bark Arc.

In my eyes, I'd give Fishman Island a 5/10, Punk Hazard 6/10 at best, and so far Dressrosa has been 7-8/10. It's a slow progression but a progression nonetheless.

Apologies for not actually discussing the topic, but I feel it's already been addressed.
