One Piece review

First of all, I started One Piece in 2014 after finishing Naruto which was the first Manga/Anime I got into. One Piece for me at first cartoonish as if I was watching a cartoon on a Saturday morning when I was a kid. It didn't have the serious Story line Naruto had at first or any cool aspects about it. The only thing that kept me watching/reading One Piece was out of curiosity of what randomness was gonna happen next. I took it as a comedy series more than anything. But the more and more you read/watch it starts getting more serious and an actual story line sets in over time that lasts multiple arcs and possibly is the final story line of what One Piece is. A lot of people got hooked on One Piece during the first 40 episodes but for me it took me a long while, more like 400 episodes...and people always ask me why I still continued reading/watching after it took so long to get hooked...most people would of given up I assume. For me though I just continued out of being bored mixed with the funny stuff happening in the story.

*****************SPOILERS BELOW***********************

What really finally got me hooked to One Piece was the moment after Thriller Bark when Kuma appears and Zoro takes all of Luffy's pain, I thought this was for sure the most intense moment so far for me watching/reading the series....and after that I really loved One Piece and started considering it better than Naruto, at that time I thought Naruto was amazing. But after I watched many other series I started seeing Naruto as pretty average. Anyway, now One Piece is my favorite manga and I'm caught up reading weekly and occasionally I re read a lot of arcs and a few chapters. I really enjoyed the Summit War saga which was the Sabaody, Amazon Lily, Impel Down, Marineford and the post War arcs... This stretch of Arcs are probably the climax of One Piece so far.

Now the World Building in One Piece is the best in any manga and possibly any fictional work. There are so many Islands they have been to and so much World Building so often that it feels like One Piece is a real world. I love how Oda does the cover stories to show what a few other characters are up to and it makes it feel even more real cause it shows how other characters are doing their own thing while we follow the main cast too.
