Love the art of the manga.

I am proud to say I have never watched a single second of One Piece in my life.

Same here!

I'm pretty sure of something, One Piece will never never reach the more than 8100 chapters of Sazae San..

That’s because Oda is finishing it. Sazae is an epitomy of a culture too afraid to move on and let go.

The prejudice here is pathetic.

Let's go Oda!

It’s too bad that a lot of people can’t get past the cartoony character designs. The world building rivals anything on western TV. I heard someone describe Oda as having the imagination of an elementary schooler and the storytelling abilities of Tolkien. And despite the childish gags, when the story gets serious, it gets genuinely emotional. Every time a character’s backstory starts, I get ready for heartbreak.

Don't worry, most commenters here are just expats, they unironically watch western movies in Japan LOL

While the world watch anime.

Naruto is by far my favourite anime and has a special place in my heart. So I naturally started to watch One Piece ......and gave up by 200th episode. SO MANY FILLERS!

You should read the manga. There are no fillers (Well... unless you count the Foxy Arc) and the pacing is way better.

One or two more years and this ends..

manga ending in 5 years ig..

@morbius

One piece doesn't have as many fillers as Naruto tho. if I recall, it's got like 90 filler episodes so far out of which more than 50 are before the 200 episode.

@Sindhoor

But Naruto's fillers are more palatable and weave into the main story better. One Piece has good filler stories, but they drag on too much for too long and go off on a tangent from the main story. That can be a turn off for some people.

Or maybe its my age bias, becuase I watched Naruto when I was like 12 started One Piece when I was 18.
