I could talk alot about the series is general. If you have the time, check out my review. I went into some pretty good detail there. In regards to the slow moving plot, I always tell people that one piece at its core is a very character driven story, as opposed to like naruto where its more driven by its core themes and overarching plot. The characters in of it self is the driving force behind the series progression and much of the lingering mysteries and world building take kind of a back seat for a while but eventually come full circle at the appropriate time. If you look at one piece from that point of view and realize its not necessarily the "destination" that is important but rather the journey and the adventure, you may enjoy it a bit more. The END goal won't come any time soon but the characters will change and evolve in pretty exciting ways which will then cause certain "events" to take place and it will envelop and become part of the grand story.

There is certain other characteristics i would love to mention about one piece like lots of variation and diverse locations, beautiful gorgeous environments and an immense scale to its world with great detail abstract details, growth and development of characters, music, forshadowing and interconnecting past, present and future events and many other things but if you read my review, i cover all those bases. Not the greatest writer in the world but you can understand a reason why i have such an unbound passion with one piece and this coming from some one that is not specifically a huge shonen fan due to a genre with lots of flaws. Consequently i am more into like space opera, mecha and scifi, but i digress. one peice is a clear winner in my books when compared to all the other shonen out there. So i hope you enjoy it and find some appreciation out of it perhaps after what I said it might give you a different perspective on things.

I believe anyone can tell you that many of the villains pre arlong is probably the weakest link in the series. Arcs are also introduced quite a bit differently and develop in different stages depending upon where you are in the story. Many of the early arcs in the east blue saga have a typical "monster of the arc" type of villain scenario but what is worse is none them really amount to much of anything outside of their specific self contained story. Arlong actually has a pretty big part in the over all plot, but it doesn not become apparent until much later, same thing with Crocodile. The moment you jump into the "grand Line" the importance of these characters changes dramatically and they will become a larger focus and even re-appear in the story at different times. Even further beyond the first half of the grand-line the format changes yet again and suddenly you have villains that are interconnected to multiple story arcs in a more cohesive overarching narrative. So as you progress through the series, the plot will gradually tighten its grip and start to connect many events. There is also some of the largest set piece moments in any shonen that i have ever seen. The final arc is set to be such a grandiose conflict, that it will dwarf some of the largest historical wars in japanese history. One more thing i want to address and a specific issue i have with alot of shonen series is the lack of "threat" imposed by many characters or villian archetypes. For example fairy tail is often told in a way that many fights are one sided because the fiary tail guilds always wins at the end of the day and it becomes this typical generic type of antagonist characters that don't amount to much let alone the larger story. This is absolutely something that DOES NOT happen with one piece and although it does seem that way now. Some of the enemies that are introduced in one piece have such an impressive threat level, that at some times you wonder if the author just wants the good guys to never win. There are some serous big timers and "monsters" in the world of one piece and i think this is something you may appreciate as you watch it. Versus other generic cookie cutter one dimensional type of villains like shown in bleach and fairy tail.

A series like one piece you have to have patience. One of the things i love about this series though is its honestly one of the perfect shonen's due to the fact that the author builds upon plot devices and stories early on and seamlessly connects things together in a way that is just mind boggling. I have seen my fair share of shonen and one thing they all have in common is inconsistency where a story may derail off point or just completely be deconstructed into a whole new type of narrative where certain mechanics are not relevant any more, for example naruto to naruto shippuuden or fairy tail or even bleach. This won't happen with one piece, the author is heavily committed and has planned out the entire final story arcs many years before he started the manga. This is why certain mysteries and hints are subtly dropped as you continue through the adventure.

Anyways I would honestly recommend you continue and if you still don't enjoy it much by like the end of the arabasta arc or the water 7 arc, then its quite frankly just a series that isn't for you. But seeing as how you are a shonen fan, my recommendation is to stick with it. It gets much better.
