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.

How can this be considered a masterpiece? No development in 600+ chapters, terrible fights, and the same Shounen loop with some minor tweaks over and over again. Then again, this seems to be one of those manga, where how much you like it directly correlates to how dumb you truly are. Read all the 10/10 comments and tell me I'm wrong. Although I could be wrong, maybe I'm stupid for denying it. I could be missing what makes it so "fantastic" completely, but it could also have no redeemable traits at all, and all the fans are just retards. I don't know, there's too many fans to truly say there's no content to it.
I'll give it a 5, although I hate it, it has a big enough presence that it cannot be so easily dismissed.

My first encounter with One Piece was 4kidz... Absolutely destroyed the series for me for years. I got into Manga 4 years after that, read everything, and avoided One Piece like the plague. Suddenly I got nothing to read, and was like, "what the hell, I'll read this garbage". BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE! I fell in love and One Piece has became my instant favorite. I LIVE for One Piece, unlike other series, their is just sooo much detail in the story, everything connects so well. I just can't get enough.

Also to bleach-No1-manga... Bleach is the MOST overrated series of all time. No plot, jack all for character development, and it's the same crap over and over with with absolute no meaning. Unlike One Piece their is a grand scheme, and everything is being set up for the end. For example, he goes place to place, kicking ass, making new allies where he goes. Everything connects! He fights Shichibukai, Marines, other Pirates. Declared war on the World Government, Big Mom, Doflamingo, pretty much all the Yonko, we seen the war at marineford, and the kind of force it took for even a Yonko to try and fight them. His dad also leads an army of revolutionaries, Oda is setting up for a HUGE battle, bigger than Marineford, with all of Luffy's allies. Just so many little tidbits in every chapter that lead up to huge parts of the story.

Bleach on the other hand.... I'll sum it up for ya and why it's bad.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
1. Ichigo becomes a shinigami
2. Meaningless stuff happens.
3. Long training arc.
4. Ichigo gets Bankai.
5. Meaningless stuff happens.
6. Long training arc.
7. Stupid crap about Bounts
8. Meaningless stuff happens.
9. Long training arc.
10. Ichigo becomes a hallow...
11. Meaningless stuff happens
12. Long training arc
13. ICHIGO IS A QUINCY?! NO WAY!

Yeah it got beyond stupid there... First hallows are the main threat, then soul society, and hallows lose their importance, than bounts, than arracars or whatever, then he is protecting hollows from the quincy. I seriously don't see how someone can put Bleach over One Piece.

one piece is just a masterpiece. no more, no less. Like some people said, Oda created an incredible and unique world, his creativity is just incomparable. I've read so many mangas that I can't even remember the names of most of them (that shows how useless those manga were...) and one piece is definetly my all time favourite. Obviously, like everything, it has his faults, but I think that its qualities make me forget its repetitiveness or whatever fauls you may appoint to one piece.
I just hope I don't die before it ends. (or Oda doesn't...)

It's just as perpetual said.
And to add to that, the cliche repetition of losing fights once before winning is there for a reason (when it does happen) unlike in other mangas. Unlike many, Oda thinks everything through and doesn't do something as pointless as that just do that to elongate the series, nothing is done without a reason.

For example: Luffy was at first beaten by crocodile but was rescued by Robin, which ultimately made her join the straw hat pirates.

Yeah this manga gets repetitive sometimes, but that's just fine i mean it is pretty long, allows me to stop reading and wait patiently for the chapters to progress some. In the end it's just an amazing world, and you just gotta love luffy's i-do-what-i-want attitude.

btw just wondering. What's the plot of Bleach in your opinion Bleach-No1-Manga?

I can tell you that I have read 600+ manga and the truth is that One Piece:

do not have the best art
not the best characters
not the most mind blowing plot twist
not the best jokes
not the most epicness fights
not the most emotional moments

But level of creativity in its fantasy world the richness of the plot stand in a level far above any manga in history, it's somewhat like the phenomenon happened to Harry Porter. And this quality alone pull One Piece to the unreachable top of Shounen Manga.

Overrated? Really? If One Piece is overrated, then Naruto and Bleach are so overrated that it transcends the boundaries of human comprehension and perception!
Yes. One Piece is just that good.
It's different from the other top shounen mangas--the quality is constent; good, unlike the drastically degenerating plots of other mangas (you know what I'm talking about). In fact, One Piece just keeps getting better and better.


The miniscule little plot hints dropped during each arc is gradually building up an amazing new world. It just keeps getting more and more exciting--it's like watching a totally new world with its own unique laws and dictations (governmentgovenmentgovenmentsecrets&conspiraciesomgthetension) unfurl right in front of your eyes. But you have to pay attention to some of the details and the foreshadowing going on to grasp the enormity of everything.

And everything DOES develop; mysteries are beginning to unravel and we're starting to see the whole picture and stuff. Character development? Yes. I see some... However the characters are already almost fully developed from the moment their backstories (which will make you cry) are revealed! Sort of like stock characters. Chracters do learn things, but it's subtle. You can't have characters suddenly changing personalities, right? I'm pretty sure in other mangas like Naruto and Fairy Tail the characters all still have their own rooted personalities and mannerisms. The character development is still there, but not as obvious.

Regarding the overused and repetitive plot aspects of One Piece--aren't all shounen fighting mangas repetitive? It depends on how you view it: shounen mangas pretty much ALL involve the main protagonist fighting and defeating an enemy, fighting and defeating another one, and another one: constantly one-upping and fighting new enemies...
One piece has fights, yes, but the fights are thoughtful and planned and there is a whole lot more going on than 'just a fight'. Mm. Revolts, subterfuge, religion, friendship, corruption, power, sacrifice-- all these intricate and interesting ideas are blended into each fight to create a delicious and enjoyable smoothie of awesome. Yummy.

Anyways. I love One Piece. But it might not be the one for all (...it is the one for me, though...), with inspirational & developed characters, action and adventure, an interesting art style (hey, the art is somewhat atypical in the sense that characters can look very different from each other smile, provoking stories (some characters' backstories made me cry...) and an epic plot to boot.

Recommended for all (hmmm... 12+?)
