Synopsis

Gol D. Roger, a man referred to as the "King of the Pirates," is set to be executed by the World Government. But just before his demise, he confirms the existence of a great treasure, One Piece, located somewhere within the vast ocean known as the Grand Line. Announcing that One Piece can be claimed by anyone worthy enough to reach it, the King of the Pirates is executed and the Great Age of Pirates begins.

Twenty-two years later, a young man by the name of Monkey D. Luffy is ready to embark on his own adventure, searching for One Piece and striving to become the new King of the Pirates. Armed with just a straw hat, a small boat, and an elastic body, he sets out on a fantastic journey to gather his own crew and a worthy ship that will take them across the Grand Line to claim the greatest status on the high seas.

Preliminary (1115/? eps)
One Piece is not like any manga out there. If you can get past its length, and find the characters likeable, it's dang near perfect. One Piece is one of the only mangas that have had me pulling all-nighters just because an arc is THAT good. One Piece seems like a goofy pirate adventure, but it turns into this emotional master piece 400 or 500 chapters in. From the start, you're immediately teased with what is to come. Just from the East Blue, you can tell that the Straw Hats will definitely be on a grander journey than the one in the first 100 chapters. ...

It's a pretty good manga. It's just not for me. And that's fine, if some people enjoy it, they enjoy it.

However, I will say my piece. The beginning starts off great, with the East Blue saga being a pretty good introduction to One Piece. We saw our first group of characters, Nami got her arc, and it was well done. The entire series is done fairly well. So why don't I like it. It is just far too long, with little to no stakes. I get that the journey is the point, you're supposed to derive enjoyment from just watching the gang have fun ...

People will always ask "when does this get good?" and answers will vary. My answer to that is around 450 chapters in. I don't understand how people can claim that One Piece is a god-sent masterwork from Romance Dawn. It's slow, obnoxious, repetitive, predictable, and unbelievably annoying. The identity of the series is also steeped in juvenile misogyny that gets gross pretty quickly. Dragon Ball did it for a couple volumes. One Piece did it for 20 years.

The Story is basic but fine. Clear motivations, clear goals. Nothing wrong with that. The art style is sometimes overwhelming. You get used to it and it's ...
