katana-s:

  • Age differences = Variety. And characters actually look their age.
  • NO FUCKING ROMANCE BETWEEN MAIN CHARACTERS, which would typically lead to unnecessary drama or brings the main character down.
  • Old enemies and friends don’t just disappear once the arc is over, they come back, we see how they’re doing, enemies become possible allies. Ex. Hachi, Buggy, Mr. 2 and Mr. 3, Crocodile, Boa, Perona, 
  • CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IS TOP NOTCH.
  • No useless female characters that just drag everyone down. So far most, if not all, female characters have been able to support and take care of themselves, and don’t just sit in the sidelines crying.
  • The fights are BOSS.
  • They don’t just forget about what happened in the past. Ex. Usopp and Chopper use their knowledge from defeating Miss Merry Christmas in the Alabasta Arc (Ep. 92-130) and apply it to try to defeat Daruma in the Fishman Island Arc(Ep. 523-571).
  • Every. Single. Character(700+) has his/her own story, own background, own relationships, and own uniquely crafted personality.
  •  The relationship between the Straw Hats is amazing. They understand each other, they listen to each other, and they follow each other without question. 
  • I don’t know how else to put this, but things connect. It’s like a puzzle piece and the more knowledge we gain, the more connections we form. Before meeting an enemy or a location, we have some sense of background knowledge about it. We meet Laboon in Ep. 62 and then we meet Brooke in Ep. 337 and their stories are connected.
  • Even though it appears to be a comical anime(which it is at times), One Piece has tones of dark themes and as much depressing scenes as it has funny scenes. 
  • Most series who have 100+ episodes usually get worse and worse, but OP just gets better and better and I don’t know how Oda does it but the fact that he has kept this series continuously interesting and has kept the story going at a smooth and smart pace is amazing. 

Whew, so that’s all my main reasons on why this series is so great, but the list is really endless. If you feel like I missed some things, feel free to add to the list! 

  • I also like the fact that there are a lot of stronger characters than the main guy(s) in the series. Luffy actually has a hard time defeating someone who is introduced as a powerful character (take Crocodile, Lucci or Kuma), Oda gives him a reality check 3 times in a row (the crew’s separation, the War, post-War situation when he realizes that they need to power up if they wanna stay alive).
  • Also, there are arcs with some really serious messages behind them. Alabasta shows what desperation does to the masses of suffering people. Shows a country’s downfall. Skypia teaches a lesson about people who blindly follow a person who decided to take the place of a God. Water7, Sabaody and Gyojin arcs’s morals are pretty clear I think. Oda, using fictional characters, teaches about real life problems such as human trafficking or discrimination/racism. So when someone teases you because you watch “cartoons” even in your twenties, thirties…sixties, just tell them to have a closer look and kindly f*ck off.
