Most of the fans of One Piece have started to know that lately, the One Piece anime has been lacking in quality. The anime is created by Toei Animation, the same company responsible for series such as Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, Sailor Moon, and Digimon. But it’s two most popular and current series, Dragon Ball and One Piece, are really all that it has left. If you were to say that the One Piece anime isn’t good, that would be a general statement. If you said that, you would be including everything pre-timeskip. Most of the fans miss how they animated pre-timeskip One Piece, and people wonder why they can’t give the quality animation style they gave the Enies Lobby arc. The answer the community has come up with is this. It’s One Piece. It’s the best-selling manga of all time. People come back to watch because of it’s popularity. And so Toei got lazy and started to work less and less on it. Sure, there are those few episodes where they can do it good. But keep in mind, you will actually get a few good episodes now and then. Just a few. First off, the opening plus recaps takes five minutes. Five. That leaves about 17 minutes left. And worst of all, they extend scenes that shouldn’t be extended and use a lot of stills just so they can get a one chapter and episode pacing. Fans have been asking to make up for this by adding more fight scenes. Now hear me out. I am not saying that the show needs to be an absolutely 10/10 perfect episode every episode. Animating is a hard and complicated process. You deal with things like time and how many shots are needed an episode. But when compare Toei to other companies like Studio Perriot and Madhouse who animate series like bleach, naruto, hunter hunter, and one punch man, all on average budgets, it makes you wonder, are they really working hard. Doesn’t Toei have massive amounts of money after all the series and movies Dragon Ball and One Piece brought? Do they use any of that money? One Punch Man had an average budget, but because of the hard work and care the producers put into it, they really put a lot of effort into making it good which led fans to believe that they have an incredible budget for the series. Can’t Toei do the same. They have the money. Well, anyone who has seen the movies know the detail put into those movies. Yes they are movies and you can’t give that type of animation weekly, but think about it. They have much time and effort put into them. The anime caught up to the manga so a break would give them enough time. And if they choose the right people, they can give their best effort to make it good. Studio Perriot took a 3 week break and has been animating the sasuke novel of Naruto with near movie-like quality. As I said before, it doesn’t have to be perfect a bad episode can happen every now and then but great episodes can happen more often if more work is put into making it great. But hear me out. There is 1 person in the world who works the absolute hardest on One Piece. And that person is Eiichiro Oda, the creator of the series. He has been said to die for one piece and must have high expectations for his staff. The same should go for the animation team. Being a mangaka is a grueling task but he pushes himself to bring the best. The Wano Kuni arc will be a heavy workload on him. One Piece has about 8-10 years of story left and the YonKou saga of One Piece can bring back the anime. So that is more than enough to have the anime get back on track.
