I got ~300 chapters in and that moment came in. I continued reading because I kept hearing good things about it but the show is just boring characters doing the same old boring shit on new islands. I thought I was getting another HxH but I was tricked. Oh well.

The tl;dr on why enies lobby is the best arc hands down.
>>
>>161408059
The problem is that majority of the cast has had their arcs so now only side characters like Law get any development.

zoro and luffy get thrash by bellamy at the bar(I watch since the beginning with 4kids,but one piece was just someone I watch to pass time because nothing else was on,but when it got switch to cartoon network and funimation dub,I didn't understand why everything suddenly got so dark,I couldn't tell the difference back then since I was probably 8,after the show got cancelled back in 2006,I decided to go watch it online,watch luffy vs enel in portuguese sub,couldn't find water 7 and majority of enemies lobby,watch luffy vs lucci in german sub,I didn't understand a single thing)
>>
>>161408607
>Fisher Tiger's backstory

Fishman Island is one of the three best arcs in its entirety. Everyone who shittalks it hasn't read through it at least a few times. Only then can you really understand what the whole point of it is.

Also Oda did a good job of making the New Fishman Pirates dangerous while at the same time making them less experienced than the Straw Hats. The drug was a good plot point.

If any speed readers need me to explain why FI was one of the best arcs, just behind Skypiea and Enies Lobby, I am here.
>>
>>161409168
As for the moment that really sold me to OP, honestly, it probably wasn't until the first encounter between Luffy and Enel. When we find out that Enel can't affect Luffy with his lightning, and when Luffy just casually kicks the shit out of Enel after him completely stomping everyone else so easily beforehand... that's when I knew this series was going to be good.
>>
If I wanted to get into this, is manga the way to go?
>>
>>161409298
Yes
>>
>>161409225
The thing that I like about that fight is that Luffy didn't even really win, Enel just tossed him off the ship and fucked off to the moon
>>
>>161409298
yep

Toei is garbage
>>
>>161409298

Tough to say... I started with the anime and I didn't transition to the manga until I caught up to the most recent episodes, and that was only because I couldn't wait when I knew I could get more story through the manga. That being said though the anime starts to noticeably get bad after the timeskip.

I will say start with the anime and go until you start to get annoyed with it (skipping the filler, mind you; use Google to find out which episodes are filler), then switch to manga. It's personally a much nicer experience to do it that way as the VAs for the anime are spot on for every character, the music is phenomenal, and the animation at times (before the timeskip) is amazing.

>>161409364

Luffy clearly won. His goal was to stop Enel from destroying Sky Island and he accomplished it. Enel gave up like a cuck and went straight to the moon because he couldn't beat Luffy.

Luffy crying and say goodbye to Ussop
this is were it got extra serious as an anime

I always enjoyed when Luffy tanked Wapol's cannons while he tried to take down Chopper's flag

>>161405758
There were many but I think a very underrated one is when mr 3 makes lots of clones from his candle shit and says Luffy can't win the fight because he's a musclehead that acts by instinct, and Luffy just hits him the first time he tries. When mr 3 asks how he did it, Luffy just says "Instinct". That was very cliche shonen but done in such a nice and hype way and probably a foreshadowing of observation Haki now that I think about it that I couldn't help but like it.

The absolute best moment for me was the first Luffy vs Bellamy fight, with Blackbeard's words setting it up.

I had a different perception of what One Piece would be before I went in, I thought it would be a lot more tame.
When Lucky Roo (the fat guy on the Red hair crew) shot a man in cold blood I was fucking sold. I didn't expect it but it set the tone of the series perfectly and really stuck with me especially since it was one of the first things to happen.
>>
>>161405758
What got me into it was the arlong arc.

Arlong Park really is the make or break point where new readers decide if they want to read the entire series.

For me Shanks saving Luffy and giving him his hat was enough to get me hooked.

Nami's arc is probably the best in East blue saga, but another great moment is Sanji and Zeff trying to survive on that rock in the middle of the ocean. It's one of those moments that feels more like a traditional pirate kind of story.
>>
>>161418430
Speaking of that moment, why did the anime change how Zeff lost his leg?
I thought him cutting off his own leg to eat was way cooler
>>
>>161418451
Even Japan has a line dictating wat they can show on kids TV, and apparently self-cannibalisation crossed it.

When luffy used coating the first time on Kraken i thought it totally fit.
Because rubber is actually capable of vulcanization, he can literally transform his body into a bowling ball. It would´ve been an excellent non-gear way to expand on his devil fruit.

...and then everyone was capable of steel-hard nigger fists because muh willpower, godammit i was so angry.

I really wish it would've kept being invisible, just like during the war of the 'BEST'.
Now it's just a wasted potential asspull.

Luffy even has lots of trouble fighting others with coating.

It's kinda understandable, when I read his past in the manga, I didn't really feel much.

But when I watched it in One Pace, damn, my eyes poured out like a socket. Same goes for some Kyros moments in Dressrosa. I guess having the voices and ost really help with making you feel the emotions.

For manga readers, I highly recommend watching the One Pace edits for post timeskip. It's a worthwhile experience.
