[Anime] One Piece

One Piece


*This impression is based on the first 746 episodes of the show.

One Piece didn’t particularly impress me in my teens, but unlike Naruto and Bleach, I actually ended up watching it into adulthood and learned to appreciate its imagination and the sense of adventure it provides despite its dumb and superficial storytelling and a lack of genuinely emotional moments.

Fascinating, vast setting full exotic places and eccentric characters
Superficial, dull, and static main cast
Great sense of adventure
Protagonist’s mentality makes any serious commentary impossible
Can be pretty funny sometimes
Slow, dragging pace
Some cool fights
Full of cringey facepalm moments
