Is the pacing better and faster in the arc/saga after the "Sky Island"? The pacing is so slow and although I like the action scenes animation rather then reading pages, the action are so very few in between and uneventful. I should have stopped watching during the Alabasta Arc since that has been the slowest pace in anime I've ever seen with nothing happening for a couple of episodes (outside of the fillers). I'm struggling and almost finished with the Sky Island saga and wondering if the show gets better withing a reasonable time frame.

It gets slower and slower, until you reach the New World arc it became one episode per chapter... So basically it still have that very long intro and recap, and dragging the episodes longer with running and running around but hey, it's still awesome. You can skip the filler arcs if you want but they're decent and enjoyable too. If you find alabasta slow paced.... Well maybe just stay with manga (:

Just go read a summary of the series instead, it'll save you hundreds of hours.

Don't skip G-8 in anime. It's one of the best short arcs and the best filler arc in anything ever.

You can always read the story to speed things up while watching the battles animated.

Ouch! It sounds like that after I struggle to finish the Sky Island arc, I should just stick with Manga only afterwards.

The pacing gets worse. Definitely switch to reading.
