The lights are on
Maybe you can't read Japanese, but you don't have to in order to appreciate anime or to hang out here. Talk with others about your favorite manga, movies, and artists.
I just started watching again, and it hit me.
It's hilarious, has great action, and dare I say moving drama.
This show is golden, and yet doesn't make a single wave in pop culture here.
I have to listen to western animation fans about how amazing Fim and Adventure Time are[Never seen FiM, but adventure Time is pretty good]...
In my opinion, neither are even close to being in One Piece's league. And yet, nobody cares.
I'm just speechless that two terrible dubs can completely devalue what is surely one of the greatest animated series ever concieved.
Really?! I've only heard great things about it from my friends.
My pull list
Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit.
But that's what I'm saying, it is only known among anime fans. I'm saying it deserves more by the quality of it's material.
The main reason i've heard people bash One Piece is because of the art. I've never had a problem with the way One Piece looks and i think it's a fantastic anime with great characters, awesome fights, and an interesting story. Also don't get me started on the soundtracks :)
One Piece is the #1 anime in Japan and it's the second most watched on hulu plus
I like breath and exist and stuff
I have tried so many times to get into it...I like the premise and the character but I cannot stand the lack of blood in the fight scenes. It makes the fights lack substance and realism. The cheesy dialogue is overly used sometimes but thats not what stops me from watching; its the disappointing fights
