A time skip is always good

Dragon Ball the manga did become Dragon Ball Z after Goku won the World's Martial Arts Tournament. He came back with a kid. 
   
No, man. In japan it stayed only as a continuous Dragon Ball manga. Only the anime had a Z. 
Your pals at Viz are the only ones who added "Z" in the manga in North America.

@hitsusatsu11: 
Really? I hadn't realized that. That's strange. I never followed the Dragon Ball manga.
 
@JJOR64: 
Don't be too concerned about the manga too much. Though it's one of the lower edited mangas VIZ makes. They censored the entire Skypiea Arc (six volumes) using religious values. They refused to use the word "God" through the entire story.
 
The anime by FUNimation is doing a good job. I can even suggest some places that are good to start.

@FoxxFireArt: Yes in Japan there is no distinction between the DB and Z manga

I'm unsure if you are joking, but that two year gap isn't for the manga. It's in the story. Two years are going to pass for the characters. Only a month for readers. Much in the same way Naruto had  a two year time skip. You have a month to catch up with the manga. "
Hahaha totally read that wrong then...
Okay then 1 month to catch up it is! I'll take what I can get!

I only watch the show because of the high production quality.  This saga has been an absolute masterpiece so far and I think Oda should take all the time he needs give it a grand finish.

These 4 weeks will be the end of me, but Oda DEFINITELY deserves this break. I worship him as a hero that is keeping the sinking boat of manga afloat just with sheer haki alone! He needs time to let that precious creative mind of his rest, and then we'll be back to more One Piece epicness and hijinks.

So with the two year advancement in age do you think the story would get more mature with the characters or would it still be the light hearted adventure it is now.  Naruto got a little more mature by making it somewhat darker and in some cases more brutal.  Then again Z kept it light hearted with the introduction of Gohan to still keep the story kiddy.
I'm confident that One Piece won't follow either of these scenarios and i can't wait for what they decide to do with the 2 years.  I'm only up to ep 280 and this is by far the best of the big three.

they should strike something between with somewhat older characters and mature storytelling but still some great light humor. something like they did in the Enies Lobby arc (I'm guessing you're there on the anime).

@jlanzer: 
Episode 280 is an odd time. The Enies Lobby Arc is epic. Sanji's fight with Wanze cracked me the Eff Up, then there is Sogeking. You have a while until you catch up with the anime. Episode 464 airs this week.
 
Honestly, you could skip to Episode 284 and miss nothing. The next few episodes are just recaps of the crews' pasts.
 
I actually lost interest in Naruto after the time skip. Everything just  became so emo.

I look forward to the end of the 4 weeks when it resumes. I hope that whatever happens after the time skip will be worth the wait.

I only watch the anime and don't read the manga so I don't believe this hiatus will effect me too much.  From what I understand the manga is much farther along in the story than the anime is presently, so I doubt it will really impact the anime for a good amount of time.  At worst, they'll be forced to do a filler-side story until there is enough material from the manga again.

i cant wait to see how they all mature and how strong they look i hope they all become badass and become funnier and of course stronger and maybe luffy should have a weapon like a sword make it harder with his haki,and maybe ussop should become really fast and strong and could shoot at a really long range with a new weapon, and zoro should be as strong as mihawk or stronger, nami should be able to tell the weather base on the smell of the air and the way it feel and her weapon should upgrade, robin should be so smart that she will be able to inform the crew whats happening in the new world, chopper should become taller and muscular and shud last in his transformation longer, franky should have mega upgrade to beat kuma and have many weapons, last but not least brook should learn whole bunch of songs and technique. thats what i hope no i hope for better then this cant wait.

Just like DBZ.... been astonished how much the new show which just cuts down the DBZ story into a more condensed series skips.... Then I watch DBZ and am dumbfounded the series ran so long.... 5 episodes to recap the spirit bomb attack? REALLY? God, how long was the Buu saga for that matter?

After 13 years I think Eiichiro Oda deserves a break.
