Why people hate:
When i first heard of this show and saw it on TV I thought it looked like garbage. It's ridiculous, crazy, unrealistic and The animation of the characters is weird. That is how I'm sure all of the people who gave it 1 star feel. One piece is NOT for everyone. If you don't have any whimsy in your body you will not get this manga. Like adventure time, when you first read/watch it you're like WTF is this. After a bit you find out how great it is. The Biggest problem with this manga is that it starts off slow. Right now it is at its peak. One piece continues to get better and better. If you put the manga down before getting into it then you will feel displeased. If you have lots of Whimsy then you can get though the beginning despite the beginning the lowest part. If you have never giggled in your whole life, don't pick this up.

Why this is my favorite anime/manga:
HILARIOUS! I can not read latest manga chapters alone at night near sleeping people. I can not tell you how many times I've almost woken people up at night because I suddenly screamed in laughter. Sometimes they use things that don't translate well, but that's what I get for not understanding Japanese and trying to read a Japanese made product. I love all the funny characters. I love much retarded the main character is, and how much trouble he makes for everyone that follows him(especially people like buggy).

Places are wonderfully. Every place they go is very inventive. I like how inventive this whole series is and how every new place is unexpected. Some places they planed to go, the rest are places they stumbled upon and found themselves in a "willy wonka chocolate factory" type place. This manga may be unrealistic, but that's because its so inventive.

The people in One Piece are extremely diverse. If you want to read this you have to get over no two "humans" look the same. You just have to pretend that the genetic mutation rate of this universe is very high, and that the stability rate for all these new mutations in the population is also extremely high.

Story: [maybe spoilers]the story keeps getting better and better. Always mystery, like what does the D stand for in Luffy's name? What happened in the lost centuries in the history of this world? etc. The arc story is usually the same for each island, but that was because this manga has three parts with three seas. Luffy wants 10 people to join him on his adventure. Finding people takes awhile, so the way they gather many of the people is similar in that they go to a new place met someone new and bring the with them. After this the story gets more abstract and less structured in the old way because they don't need to round up more people and they can have fun.

Dialogue: I said this was already hilarious. I hate how in some mangas there are NO words. One piece has JUST the right amount of words in and out of fights. Even in deadly fights you will still be entertained by the hilarious dialogue. Never found another anime that could bring the action and comedy into the same page so well.

Animation: it is crazy, but you have to learn that it is crazy on purpose. Its an adventure. What's an adventure without something to surprise you with and keep you excited.

Entertainment: Like i said, this keeps getting better and better. One thing you will LOVE about the anime is that when there are filler episodes they are not boring. This is not bleach where you get stuck in filler arcs every other arc. They place fillers in small places. The fillers work well with the story. They never pull you out of the story into an arc. Many times when a filler episode starts I cannot tell because it works soo well with the cannon.

This manga is not for everyone, but for those that can be whimsy you will love it. Enjoy
