How can ANYONE dislike one piece is beyond me, the plot, the character development, the amazing moments...everything piles up to one of the greatest shonens ever made.
the plot is amazing and well elaborated, the plot develops correctly and doesnt drop the main story like jojo's bizarre adventure,bleach and naruto(just to give some examples).instead you will find many side stories along the main quest. there are many things happening in this world and to be honest it feels more alive than any other, you wont find many moments of bias here either.
the animation has its ups and downs,you may encounter low quality early in the series but that's only because the series has been going for over a decade. the animation peaks at the enies lobby and thriller bark arcs but suddenly drops again. all in all its toei's fault for the inconsistency.
one piece has in my opinion the most appealing cast (shonen wise) ever, all characters have their own stories and backgrounds, you can feel a connection between those characters and you actually care for what happens to them, some stories will even touch your heart and others will make laugh like crazy. on this aspect one piece wont lose to any other series, sometimes i found myself watching other shonens and thinking just how cool it would be if luffy were there. it's that good.
if you like dragon ball, fairy tail,ao no exorcist, naruto and bleach just jump on this right away, it might become your new favourite! i recommend this to any shonen fan, the only turnoff to some would be either the raw ammount of chapters or the art style, but people who have actually watched it will find that the art style is something you just get used to and even like. overall its a must see shonen.
