The fastest way to watch One Piece: One Pace project.
There is a fastest way to watch One Piece anime. A good news is that there is a project called One Pace. It is basically a fan made faster version of the anime where a lot of bullshit has been cut out. Some people really like it and some people don’t because they believe it cuts out some vital parts of the anime. Judging from online forums, I think there has to be a system to watch this anime.
- Watch till right before the battle at marine fort as part of the original anime
- Switch to One Pace during the battle or keep watching the Original if you enjoy being pressurized a little.
- After the battle of marine fort, you can basically switch to One Pace completely.
As much as I know, One pace also cuts out filler episodes so you might want to keep switching between the Original and One Pace in case you want to watch the fillers. If you are ready to put in this much effort, then One Piece is surely worth watching as it is, even with the shitty pace, one of the best Anime I’ve ever watched.
Is One Piece worth watching?
Of course it is. One Piece’s greatest strength is the characters. It’s really an ensemble show – while Luffy is the protagonist, his crew, known as the Straw Hat Pirates, are every bit as important to the journey as he is. Among their varied personalities, strengths, and ambitions, any viewer is sure to find one or more they deeply empathize with and root for. Furthermore, none of the main cast feels wasted. As the story stretches on, they have important roles, even if some of them occasionally leave the later arcs. The crew makes the story incredibly endearing.
Should I continue watching One Piece episodes?
What helps keep One Piece focused are the mysteries Oda has woven into the narrative. The true nature of the titular One Piece and even the location of the island it’s on, Laugh Tale, are both completely speculative. Other mysteries include the Void Century, a period in history with no records, and the Will of D., a mysterious destiny for people with the initial “D,” including Luffy and some of his greatest foes. Very little is known about these mysteries, but they’re sprinkled throughout the narrative like breadcrumbs, popping up often enough to remind viewers that One Piece does have an endgame, that it is building to a climax, no matter how long it will take us to get there.
Why One Piece anime is not worth watching.
One Piece is one of the best Anime ever made. For the first 250–300 episodes it feels freaking awesome. Then, it starts to slow down in pace. The story is still freaking good. By the time you get to the Battle of Whitebeard vs the Navy, the anime has slowed down a lot. This battle the most epic large scale battle that I’ve ever watched in an Anime, nothing even comes close. The problem is that it takes literally 2–3 episodes to finish a simple dialogue between 2 people during this battle. It is extremely slow.
At about 600 episodes in, you get to the Dressrossa Arc. Believe me, you will want to murder the creators and start to hate the anime so much because of the pace of this arc. It is slower than a bored sloth. In short, the anime slows down to a point of unwatchability. So if you hate slow animes and don’t want to regret starting this anime just because you cannot keep up with the crappy pace later, don’t watch it.
6 Reasons why you should watch One Piece anime.
- The characters: An Idiot captain, the badass first mate, The perv cook, the greedy navigator, the lying sharpshooter, the queer archaeologist, the reindeer who is a doctor, the cyborg shipwright and the dead singer!Their boat scenes are an amazing watch.
- The backstories: The backstories of the main characters have tore its fans into tears. Why just the Straw Hats, even the villains at times have crazy back stories. These help associate with a character to such an extent that you feel you are in the story itself.
- The villains: The villains in this story are just too amazing. Extremely unique characters and picturization ( you actually start hating them), great side characters and exquisite story build ups… Each villain has tested Luffy till his limit until he has come up with a very creative way of beating them.
- The Fight scenes: I will never forget Enel’s face when he realizes his powers are useless against Luffy. Or the first time Luffy uses gear second against Blueno. The way Luffy comes out of the Dolphin’s mouth and punches Hordy. When Zoro cuts Daz Bones, man of steel. When Sanji kicks Vergo to save Tashigi. I can go on and on and on.
- The Epic Scenes: If I were to describe One Piece in one line it would – ‘One Piece is a collection of Epic Scenes’ and I wouldn’t be the least bit wrong.
- Dialogues: This is like the garnishing of the dish. As if everything else wasn’t perfect, some of the dialogues hit the right note every single time.
