I love reading One Piece's manga, but I don't like One Piece's anime, anyone feel the same with me?
In One Piece's anime series, the battles carry on much slower and contains too much talking, you cannot imagine how they discuss so long during the battle. Besides, the fighting in manga is much more attractive than that of anime. 
I'm One Piece's fan, and I want to listen to other One Piece's fans opinion.

I don't really watch One Piece, but I'd say that's usually the case with manga-to-anime adaptions. Take nearly any given franchise with both a manga and anime, and 99% of the time the original will be the better of the two.

I agree. But as AgentJ said, this is how I feel with almost ALL cartoon adaptations.

One Piece is probably the prime example. Very early on until much recently, the cartoon seemed to be somewhat ashamed of how rounded and cartoony (and good) Oda's drawings were, and it's very clear from the get go that they tried their best to bland it up as much as they could. It doesn't help that like every other major ongoing series, the animation team needs to pad out scenes or create filler in order to stay on top.

The comic is superior to the cartoon in seriously every way it possibly can.

That said, during the best saga of the entire series (Whitebeard War), the cartoon took a very noticable step up in terms of overall quality. The drawings started to get much closer to the original drawings, and the animators added dynamic, exciting, and creative new sequences to different scenes that played off of animation's strengths to accomplish what the comic couldn't. That's what the cartoon should have been doing from the start.

That said I am a sequential art major, so I'm very biased.

I watch One Piece mostly to heat Zoro talk and hence, I say anime>>>manga...

But as a general rule, always Manga>>>anime unless it's a gag manga in which case I say it will be better if it's animated...

Yeah, Bobobo's drawings are pretty terrible.

There ARE a good deal of cartoons that actually look better than the comic it's based on, but they're still pretty rare among the stuff I read.

of course , the adaptations are not good most of the time.

I think this goes with the phrase the book is always better than the movie.

I haven't watched most of the anime but from what i have seen it was really enjoyable, that being said i prefer the manga.
