I like the art. I think it's more fun to look at than anything else, however, I'm sure some people would find it unappealing. Artwork has a large effect on whether someone keeps reading a series because even if the characters and story have their merits, if they are constantly distracted by artwork they simply don't like, then I can imagine they probably wouldn't last long enough to see how good this series really is (things like female body shapes and how wide characters open their mouths can especially be unappealing to certain people . . . my mom for example dislikes how wide the mouths open at times and my sister dislikes how the female bodies are drawn).

Protracted Conflict
Aside from individual arc-to-arc conflict where the main protagonist is up against a particular villain character (and other characters fight, stuff happens, etc.), there is an overall story that is going on, that is introduced from the beginning of the series, and is constantly built up and I think it really holds up this series. Pretty much everyone who reads this series can agree with me when I say that the pacing slows down tremendously in the middle of arcs, for better or worse. However, even if there were a few times that I wanted to drop the series (or at least put it on hold), I continued reading because I keep wanting to find out what happens next, what certain things mean, etc. There is a lot of foreshadowing in this story. There are also really cool flashbacks and just as we learn more about the present world and as events happen in the present and future of the story, so do we learn about the world's history and about events that have happened in the past. I think that's really cool.

A lot of stories like these just focus on the battles and while they might have some depth to them, it isn't enough to carry the series for very long, or if the series does continue, it starts to lose its appeal (e.g. Bleach, Fairy Tail, Naruto, etc.). One Piece might have certain flaws when it comes to its pacing and other minor details throughout, but there's just so much that keeps you wanting to find out more. Even after 800 chapters, the story continues to get better and better. You'd think that after 83 volumes, it would have gotten pretty dull, right? But that's not the case at all. In fact, the two most recent chapters, 834 and 835, are some of the best chapters in the entire series. By the way, when I said that there were a few times where I wanted to drop the series or put it on hold, I literally meant a few times. And for a series with over 83 volumes, that's actually pretty damn incredible.

3rd Best Shounen

This is a great manga. I just want to get that out there first. Before I read One Piece for myself I heard some people saying it was a Dragon Ball ripoff and while I can see where they're coming from sorta (Luffy does remind me of younger Goku quite a lot) One Piece is by far its own thing, and a pretty amazing experience.

I won't lie though, the series certainly has problems. For one, (and some people willl probably hate me saying this) but I think the series is just too gosh darn long. I know it's a shounen and it's popular so of course they're gonna stretch it out, but at some point I think it just gets kind of crazy. One Piece has hundreds of chapters and anime episodes, and like a dozen movies. While it does make the series epic in scale, it also means that some plotlines just take forever. That and One Piece also has lots of characters. Tons in fact, and they don't stop being important to the plot when they leave so sometimes you have a break of 300+ chapters before a character returns. This is fine for the most part because it helps build the world but at the same time it's clear this story will be going on for a couple hundred more chapters at least. This means they'll be adding in more characters and it's already making my head spin. Heck there's 10 main characters in the Straw Hat crew, and in some of the later chapters the story starts to buckle a bit trying to keep the reader informed what's going on with everyone. Also while there's all sorts of varied character designs throughout the series, after a certain point nearly every woman becomes the same basic template (enormous tits, tiny waist) which isn't a huge deal because hey this is for teenage boys but does make me wish he tried harder with the female character designs.

Mostly this is just nitpicking though. I mean the story is over 800 chapters by now, if you see that and you're still interested you're probably going to be cool with a little complication. Since I've been following the story for the past five years or so I don't think much about the length at this point but it will be one of the biggest hurdles for someone coming into this series fresh. If you're willing to put in the time however you'll be greatly rewarded, One Piece is just a blast to read. There's a lot of incredibly creative powers, awesome fights and some fantastic moments of friendship. A surprising amount of emotions here as well, at a couple of points during the story I shed some tears or smiled in pure joy. I think this manga is primarily about the joy of life, about friendship and love and fighting for what you want.

Then there's the setting for the world, which really lends the series a wonderful sense of mystery and adventure. The island setting lets each new location be as crazy and varied as Oda wants, and since they reveal bits of the plot over the course of the story you always want to read more to find out if they talk more about one of your favorite plotlines. I really can't wait to see the end one day, just so I can see where Luffy's story concludes.

I really recommend this story. Sure there are some parts that aren't as good, but this is one of the most popular mangas ever for a reason. The story is fun, the characters are memorable and you feel like these people are on a real adventure.

P.S. - The best shounen is Fullmetal Alchemist and the second best is My Hero Academia in case you're curious.

for short, the plot have no process at all, random scene pop up, random character pop up. The plot is simple and repeated itself. Character nice at first half but keep remain forever. Main lead is super hero but simple minded, kind but air head and stupid. Only have fist-solution.

Seriously !!!!! over 800 chapters and the plot is still a mess !!! Droooooopppped !!!!!!!

still I give 6 overall. Maybe I will come back when it finished. Or maybe not

I love One Piece and can say that it is my number one manga. The story telling great, each character is unique, and the world is brilliantly design. Honestly the drawing style is unique and I say that it just bring out a better manga. I am sometimes baffle of how many manga drawing styles are quite the same nowadays and One Piece unique design is great.
The story is yes at times sure rinse and repeat, but how many manga done this before. But way how the story is told is great. I love how Oda makes the characters react to one another and how sometimes comedic scene appear at very intense moments that lets you take a step back and get ready for some more action.
The characters are all unique, you can't say that any of the Strawhat crew are the same. Each one adds to the story in their own way and I can't say anyone of them are useless. Also another thing that is great about One Piece is how many different island there are. There should be way more island out there that Strawhats hasn't visit because there are many routes to take to get to One Piece and well that is awesome. That mean there could of had been other great adventure to enjoy.
If you haven't read One Piece you are missing out.

For sure in my top 10 mangas.

Had some really nice reads with One Piece , but it's time to start wrapping things up...the history it's starting to get very repetitive, i expect ODA can freshen things up a little on the next saga.

At least i wanted more histories on the side characters that for me make this show so amazing , the villains , marines and other pirates.

This manga will not suit everyone's tastes, and you definitely need a lot of patience to get through this entire manga. The art is particularly strange for the shounen genre. However, it is worth the temporary pain.

Some may call this manga's different arcs repetitive or dumb upon slimming them down to short sentence descriptions, but that is applicable to every story in existence. What matters in the end is the story's execution, and this is where One Piece excels.

The characters actually come to life in this manga despite the distasteful art, and I've fallen in love with each and every character--even the villains! ( except one...) As the story goes on you begin to see the formation of a close knit crew of amazing people called the Straw Hat Pirates-- and you will go on a bizarre but unforgettable journey together with them on their ship. I love OP for making me laugh with the silly characters who always seem to tackle life as it comes--they are SO carefree that I am infected with their enthusiasm and optimism.

I love the idealistic portrayal of this particular group of pirates: (they are more like sailors) Their ambitions, dreams, loyalty, and hilarity have made me a huge fan of OP. I cry when any of the main characters cry, and love everything Oda has pieced together.

Get ready to board the feels train, folks. You're in for an amazing ride. wink

I started following this manga/anime when I was a little kid and I still enjoy it a lot. Many people thinks that it's getting repetitive and boring, but for me it's not like that at all. Every arc of this series has it's particular charm, or that's what I think. Maybe it's true that at first it was more of an "adventure story", but the plot is too developed fot it to remain as a story that simple. And personally I think it would have been a mistake for it to still be only that, because even if it's funny and enjoyable the "adventure thing", a manga with this many chapters has to have some deep plot.

I don't think that the art is getting worse, every long manga suffers from "art changes". Too many years have gone by since Oda started drawing this, obviously his art is gonna change... It's different, but I don't find it better nor worse.

Obviously, even thought One Piece is a "must-read" for many of us, not everyone is gonna like it. It's just impossible. I won't say that this is the best manga, but I assure that I enjoy, laugh and cry reading the manga and watching the anime. I find the story very inspiring; a story with absurd arcs and situations but also with very emotive and sad ones. I like this diversity, and I hope I still do as time passes and Oda draws more chapters =)
