    One Piece - To watch or not

    Hello there Fellow base members

    I would consider myself quite an Anime lover, and I've watched quite a lot.
    But one anime that I've never gotten myself to watch is One Piece.

    Now, I've seen the first 9 episodes, and although I think it's okay, I'm still not completely hooked.
    So I wanted to ask, if you will get dragged more into the story? And if so, when?

    One of the things I like about Naruto, is the character development, and how you can speculate about the jutsus, and the fights in general.

    If you got some other reasons to watch it, please do tell

    Oh.. And I've found the first 10 episodes in high res (the "Special" releases).. But do I really have to watch the rest of the episodes in 480p? (Untill the newer ones of cause)...

    Thanks in advance

    //Maaggel

    Edit: Oh.. I just found another "Shoul I watch or not" thread.. So I'm gonna look through that But I would still apreciate some pointers here, and especially about the 480p quality question

    Imo, the artwork sucks.

    But it's a great series, I recently began reading the manga. Luffy is awesome.

    In terms of charachter development, its the best anime out there.

    Overall, It is the best anime/Manga of all times . And I am being modest.

    How could you possibly be being modest with a statement like that?

    Re: One Piece - To watch or not

    At the begining I found it boring too,I don't remember when exactly I got hoocked but I can say now that is epic.The characters are very unique,everybody has a good history background and the plot is evolving in many levels.For me is a must watch.

    Re: One Piece - To watch or not

    Thanks alot guys

    And though it's mixed opinions I think I'll atleast gotta give it a try for the first 50 episodes or so..
    I've read in another thread that the first 20 are the boring ones..

    But when does the quality get better than 480p?
    I've found a download for the first 100 episodes, in 480p.. and if it's better before that I should atleast find a better quality then

    Re: One Piece - To watch or not

    watch you wont regret it

    it a bit slower in the start but the moment the crew enter Grand Line it'll be really fun and intersting

    i really cant tell much abt it without spoiling it for you

    if character development, depth in plot, twists in the storyline, are your thing then you will love One Piece

    one advice though is do not skip any episodes/chapters in One piece .....in one piece what you might think as irreverent at beginning might play important role afterwards.....
    also though anime is high quality i think it'll most probably edit out violence and lessen the blood effects and such ....so you might try the manga ...

    Re: One Piece - To watch or not

    9 episodes and you find it ok so far. Not bad. If you continue with it, it may be top 3 for you. You will start to notice a plot around episode 20ish(think 22). From there it gets much better. The animation will start to get better also after 40 or so episodes(2nd season starts). Also, there is a filler arc right before they enter the grandline. I would skip that one, it isn't the best. The other fillers are really good. Then the next two sagas are half way decent and comparable to Naruto at that point. After that, Sh!t gets real. Of course this is like 200+ episodes into the story at this point. There are so many plot twists and character development its insane. It gets out of the Bad guy appears, he is horrible, let's kick his ass, to well...., just watch it and find out.

    Re: One Piece - To watch or not

    It's good. and if your an anime lover who has already watched it, you know that it's doing it for ya (most likely). But truthfully, those people that only dip a toe in anime (those that don't watch a bunch of animes) always seem the less taxed and most happy.

    Re: One Piece - To watch or not

    its got the best character development i have seen and its great. I prefer it to naruto but but others prefer naruto so it is good. One thing you need is patience since Oda likes telling the story slowly. For example we meet a guy in the first ep but we still have no idea how strong he is

    I agree, it's hard to understand the manga.

    Re: One Piece - To watch or not

    One Piece is one of the animes you have to watch sooner or later. It's that good. Once they get to Arlong Park, it gets better from there on out. Sadly, it took me like 200 episodes to really start enjoying it. Just bear with it for now. It'll pay off.
