Wonderful Adventure

As I read this I lose myself and forget everything around me. I love it. I have fun while reading this. I'm not just reading it for the treasure one piece but for each and every adventure. What they go through, what happens/ed and also for the stories he gives us for the crew, islands, and other characters in this story. Everything is one big story. One thing connects to another and it continues to do so. He even brings back some old characters. Sure it tends to repeat itself with him winning almost every battle but I'd shrivel up and scream in agony if he were ever to lose. His creativity as everyone can see is beyond words. It leaves me facing the setting sun on my knees on a cliff by the sea in tears (in my mind) everytime I see his works of art. This is my number one favorite manga.

people who are just reading this manga should be considerate. first of all. the mangaka of this Eiichiro Oda was been confined in hospital due to his illness but he still continue to draw even though he is in the hospital. 2nd of all he is enjoying what his doing right now of course I am a fan I also enjoying reading. if you have a spare time try to know why the mangaka and those who provide manga. what are they doing. sorry for my wrong grammar. thank you for reading

11/10. Really.

One Piece is, by far, the best shounen out there.
The only problem is that Oda-sensei got carried away and wrote way more chapters than necessary, which is not really bad for those who are catching up, as there's plenty of content to read. Almost nothing feels like a filler.

For the readers that are up to date with the chapters, whoever, every hiatus feels like a century (one week out of 3 won't have a chapter release, as the author is currently - as of chapter 730 - recovering from health problems).

The story was going pretty slowly, something like 14 pages each week, 2 to 3 chapters a month... But since the time-skip things are moving steadily, with lots of intertwined plots developing at the same time. At this pace maybe One Piece will end by the year... 2090? :3

A must read.

I'm not gonna lie I will not read 700+ chapters I don't care I'm not.
I would consider this series a classic anime if Oda did not just drag the whole series out; we
could at least learn how the one piece looks like, why go through 700+ chapters, when taking out the fighting you got probably 200 or 300. He sorta stick to the plot, characters are okay. so 7/10

One piece as a fantasy I will give it 10/10 Oda is one of the most creative mangakas ever, he very original I respect him for that.

(one of) the best fantasy story ever

I like reading since I was little and fantasy story is one of my favorite. I don't have to repeat all the people have said here about the series, except for one thing that this series is definitely one of, if not, the best fantasy story ever written.

the thing about one piece is that you can expect something new something different something incredible as the ship sail from one place to another. one piece scale is really vast that I have never seen any story with this magnitude before.

if you really like good story of adventure, this is it. Just bear with the art for a while and suddenly you wont feel thats a problem anymore as you travel in the grand line with straw hat and the gang. I have experienced this so I know !!!

Thugg said everything I had in my mind... but I'm going to comment the art more since some people are afraid to even start reading one piece because of it's style.

If you could stop being an A-hole and stop thinking that art = realistic or Masakazu Katsura then please, believe me: one piece art is PERFECT! It's perfect for shounen, kids and comedic action manga. every character, thing (roses, ships, machines) and scenery is drawn detailed but simply... sometimes when something looks complicated (like again, roses), oda shows us how he draws them and all we can think is "Wow, that looks so... easy!".

Narutards and bleach fanboys won't believe me but pleasea, look closer at the art. See the little details! So much in one scenary I wonder how they (assistants and Oda) have time to do all their work. It's playful, fun and again; simple but that what makes it so awesome! Like dragon ball!

The Best.

This manga is not the best because of blindness of some jerkish fans, it is the best because of it's unique and highly engaging plot. You cannot even think how the author can surprise you and how the small details can actually make you go numb. When I re-read the series what I saw was that there was some things or some details at the end of each arc which were hard to notice and those minute details went on to make a big and absolutely mesmerizing arc.

Now, moving on. About the characters. The characters all have a very distinctive art with accentuated features. It may look a little odd to begin with but the art slowly grows on yourself. The background art is detailed but I have seen better in many other series. The main thing about One Piece is the main character. I have not seen such a protagonist in any series. Oda makes you love the main character so much that though him being absolutely dumb you hoot for him all of the times.
What many point out is that Luffy does not goes any character development in the whole 700 chapters. Well, I'd say he does undergoes a character development but what makes the main character of this series unique is that his never changing character. Ask any One Piece fan, Luffy changing his attitude or any trait is simply beyond imagination and that is what Oda has sown into the minds of us readers that the main character, no matter what, will not change. As per the character relationships, you'll be damned if you get some better friendship and comradeship views in any other series. The drama, the backstory of every character in the crew of Luffy is just heart touching.

Coming on to the fights, the biggest reason why most of the fantasy and supernatural genre people don't like One Piece is that there no super mode and unbelievable battles in the series. Everything is stitched nicely with the " One Piece Logic ". What amazes me is the randomness of the fights, there is no particular form of fighting that anyone follows. Especially the main character, there is no uniform style. And this is what makes the One Piece fights natural where anything can happen. Also, the addition of the absolutely amazing concept of " Devil Fruits " in the One Piece universe serves as most entertaining element. No matter how goofy people think Luffy looks by stretching his body, believe me when you understand the basics of One Piece it would look pretty damn badass. Also what I like thoroughly about One Piece is that no " Instant Power Ups " are given in the series. Here, the strength either comes from training or devil fruit. The main character has the lowest tier of the ability and there are hundreds of people who could defeat him in a punch. But that's what makes it good and worth reading.

And the last reason why One Piece is the best. The well timed time-skip. I don't think any series has a better time-skip situation than One Piece. When the time-skip gets over, there are just so many things to look forward to that you cannot even count. Even while One Piece has rushed to 707th chapter there are many things we don't know. Time-skip has made everything more interesting, new characters are well placed by Oda and pace of the arcs have been better since then. Also, the coming back of many characters has been the specialty of One Piece. What you may judge has irrelevant and not important could be the game changer.

I think this must have cleared some doubts of the people not liking the series. Unless you give it a try you won't be in a position to judge it and I'am pretty bold to say it that there is no long-term fantasy series as good as this.

One piece is a funny adventure to read. It have wonderful and unique characters, a "road/ocean" trip across a fantasy univers who always surprise me. Each arc have an interesting story and good/awesome fight, but sometimes it tends to stretch before reaching the conclusion(the reason I didn't give a 10), it's probably the only long storyline ongoing manga that I read and I didn't get bored and I always ask for more. The art didn't impress me at first, but it really improve and it is really great now.

Trying won't be a regret

One Piece's amount of chapters and slow start can be deterring and many come in with biased view of it because of its popularity, but the majority have spoken and it is a compelling story and exceptional battles.

In a way, this is a rinse and repeat for each arc due to the set up of the fights, but each arc has a LARGE difference in each back story setting, tonality, and pacing. There is ALWAYS something new and something connecting to a previous arc.

Someone soooooo far in the beginning can show up in the latest chapters. It's the little details that make it so great.

Trying to read it won't take but a bit of your time, but if you do, investing time is something that you won't regret.
