Why, Toei? Just why?
>728 episodes of this shit
1-400 episodes weren't that bad, especially thriller bark arc, or ace vs blackbeard arc, etc.
just after marineford arc everything get screwed, and dressora is a fucking joke
She isn't official™ best girl™ of Shonen Jump™'s One Piece™ for nothing!
One Piece is one of the most fucking popular anime. Why the animation of OP is so bad?
Just look at Bleach, which is shonen like One Piece, and also long as op.
This opening is fucking masterpiece, it's just example.
I don't get it, how this popular anime like OP, could have so bad animation.
Toei doesn't get better because a goreillian people still watch it regardless of their inability to animate.
I'm sure they have some contract, I doubt Oda can just up and dump them.
Meanwhile in a show for little girls also animated by Toei.
>cute girls in pretty dresses all out brawling
This is Pretear isn't it? I've always been interested but the earlier designs look so unsightly I just can't bring myself to watch.
Toei has a bad habit of fucking over their animation team (generally outsourced to Vietnam or the Philippines). It's not that the Flips and Charlies can't draw, Toei just doesn't give them the time. During Sailor Moon: Crystal one of the animators complained that they would get orders in the middle of the night that were due the next morning.
Not only children. And jesus fucking christ, even Naruto or Bleach which is also for children, doesn't have so bad animation.

And I am fucking pissed off, because since Timescip, One Piece became more childish.
of course, Precure does have a lot of shitty quality as well, but usually the midseason and finale has really good animation.
Also the movies.
I hate you so much you don't even know
Fuck this ugly anime.
Why is this popular with normalfags and middle schoolers?
They simply try to see how bad/cheap they can do animation until the complains show up on the bill. But they realised that people will watch the anime regardless of qulity.
So, to maximise their profit, they just shit out the episodes and are not bound by good animation since it's not a requirement to bring it under the people
Also, as someone pointed out, it's for kids.
I've re-watched some things from my childhood that I loved at the time, and never noticed how less than polished it was because I was too busy being entertained.
The pacing is what really killed my drive. I guess Japs don't mind slow things, I mean, just look at their roller coasters.
Yes, you're right... but if you are an anime studio, you have to do things right. If you do things right, you'll have better reputation. If you'll have better reputation, you'll have more money from sponsors, investors, and you'll make bigger profit. That how it works.

G's face freaks me out.
It looks hollow.
That fucking extra backflip for no reason.
His momentum was perfect if he'd kicked him during that cartwheel thing.
>implying you can kick a bad motherfucker like that if your leg isn't on fire
Breaking joints is a legit animation technique used to get more "snap" into a movement - it's only present for one or two drawings so the viewer feels it without registering that it's off-model.
This is not how it's fucking done.
You've all heard it enough by now
Let's put this in perspective
The anime is now over 100 episodes in.
It is currently halfway through chapter 787.
They still have easily more than 10 episodes left to cover.
Well over 110 episodes will be the end result.
Less than a chapter average in a full length episode.
It's not the full G defeat animation but I'll take it
I love one piece's pace. There's not a lot of good shows out there and here's a consistent fantasy anime that delivers almost every single week.
I love the character interactions and the atmosphere, so the brief pauses and recycled frames are just an extended cut to me.
This. I can deal with poor quality because I just want something to relax and watch after work, but when. 22minute episode is 15minutws of recap and 5 minutes of "next time" it's really hard to watch
