5 Reasons One Piece is Horrible

One Piece has been hailed as one of the greatest manga ever for a while now. Well, let me tell you, those people are wrong. One Piece is horrible and I can sum it up in five easy reasons. I'm telling you right now there are spoilers so don't get on Twitter complaining about them.


1. All the women look alike: Oda does a great job of designing cities, towns and even unique attires for characters. He's got one short coming, he can't draw women. Not at all. He's got 3 faces and 3 body types for women. Everything else is mix and match from then on. It's been over a decade so you'd think he would have it down by now. Instead he's taken on the idea of bigger breast means nobody will notice all the faces are the same.


2. Almost everyone gets a happy ending: Ace is the only one who has died that didn't get a happy ending. Whitebeard died, and he was happy he finally got to see all of his children together again. We thought Pell died, but he made it out okay and the kingdom is doing great. Soldier finally got his real body back and was reunited with his family, also the kingdom is doing great. Nami escaped slavery and Robin finally has friends. Chopper found a place where he belongs. It's all good in the end.


3. Death is Rare: Ace died, Whitebeard died, nobody else died in the present. All the other deaths were in the past. That's if Zoro didn't kill Monet because we haven't seen evidence as to if she survived or not. Probably just paralyzed. Some creators have an itchy trigger finger but not Oda. Nobody is dying so it's okay.


4. Too long: I'm not talking about overall the story being too long. I'm talking about just some of the arcs. Did you know in the time it took the strawhats to get from Fishman Island to Zou that I started college, graduated college, got a job in the field I studied and put in 8 months to qualify for my 401K with about a month extra to spare. But, only about a week has passed in the story. Longest week ever.


5. Too much exposition: Exposition is one of the strong points of One Piece. However, sometimes there's just too damn much. Sometimes we get backstory for characters we will never see again. Characters that will not have relevance to the story in the future. Cutting some of this out would probably help shorten some of these arcs. Like we got more information on the war on Sky Island than we did about the background on Enel, a key character.

  1. you forgot how much time they waste just to show new material..In every new episode they waste well over five minutes with the theme song, previous episode review.. and now they feel the need to to tell you the names of every crewmate.. honestly they only show 15 minutes worth of material every week

    1. that has nothing to do with the story of one piece and shouldnt be a reason to call it bad, but ignorant people will be dumb. Nothing i can really do about it.

  3. what the heck...??
    i accept that each episode can be spent more on telling the story but if you look back at the 700 episodes there has been so much magnificent story told even with the wasting parts.

  4. How does any of this make it horrible? None of the points you make take away ANY bit of the entertainment excitement and emotion the story brings to manga readers or anime watchers. Also I have seen no talking characters have the same face except for male marines

  7. dimas, Eichiiro Oda's wife did not married him because of his face, she married him because of his personality and how he is not of his face, that comment was so low.

  8. some of the points you made are all okay except that its too long i agree its too long but the rest are fine whats wrong with a happy ending or no one dying that how the show is if you dont like it dont watch it some of the points are what makes it such a great anime and i think no one from the straw hat crew should die.

  9. those are valid reasons as far as I can tell, but they are far from the MAIN reasons one piece sucks (well except the nobody ever dying one, which ties into the main reason, which is...) POWER LEVELS. they are all fucked up. I only got like 30 chapters into it, but Luffy is obviously the generic overpowered shonen main character, who can defeat anybody he wants without breaking a sweat. the same applies to all members of his group. in the whatshisname the cook vs pearl fight, that guy gets crushed, punched in the face etc. and isn't paralysed or even loses a tooth. damage is just brushed off as if they have instant regeneration. that means NOTHING is ever at stake! which in turn means all the action is completely meaningless, and there is NO EMOTION. compare e.g. dragonball z, where characters including the main die quite a lot (ok they come back easily but still, fights are a lot more exciting when you know that somebody can actually DIE there). luffy is literally invincible. can't be cut, can't be pierced, can't be bludgeoned. you won't find a single enemy like that in d&d, cause that is UNBALANCED. also, he starts at epic levels instead of level 1. it's hard to find a more overpowered main character outside of fucking Toriko!

    second reason is that literally everybody in the onepieceversum is completely and utterly retarded! peg-leg cook cuts off and eats his own leg? chest-guy doesn't try to break the chest he gets fused (wtf) with? btw the chest should make him very buoyant, so he would be able to escape the island). pirates let a newbie guy eat a 100000 currency units devil fruit and laugh it off?! when somebody has a "dream", even if it's a fucking DOG, luffy instantly bonds with him and goes to extreme lengths to invoke some twisted sense of morality. however, sometimes that randomly doesn't happen when guys are "evil".

    third, nothing makes any sense. one piece is said to be ALL the treasure in the world. which means nobody else has any treasure. so what do all the pirates fucking sail the seas for then, when there's nothing to loot. also, nami has a chest of valuables at some point, which means (obviously) one piece is NOT ALL the treasure. what a fucking stupid claim to make. another example: luffy swims in a barrel, straight into a whirlpool. when he surfaces, the barrel is nailed shut. so did he nail himself into the barrel FROM THE INSIDE!?! there are tons of examples like that. axe-hand would never work like that and hurt like hell to use when the shaft is literally wedged into your arm stump! more things: ridiculously overcomplicated attacks that never hit, or when they do hit, do no damage whatsoever. shouting out attack names, in-universe. wow how stupid is that. tons of other things. I even did a few chapter reviews on my blog picking apart the first few chapters but got so disgusted I stopped. literally the only actually interesting thing I encountered is the incongruous Kunia flashback, which actually features an interesting character for once! alas, she inexplicably dies after a few panels and zorro doesn't really learn from it either. btw, you see her father' silhouette smiling (!) when she's dead. talk about poor quality control. and I bet in the next 1000 chapters of this dreck there were at least 5 women who were strong fighters, in other words what she killed herself for doesn't even make any sense in the onepieceverse. enough

    1. My dude, watch more one piece. I dont blame you since you are only 30 chapters in, but if you didnt say you were 30 chapters in I would look at you as if you were some ignorant nobody. Also ima correct you on everything you got wrong. Luffy, not overpowerd, neither is his crew once you enter the grand line its a whole different story as you might have seen with Mihawk. Also yes everyone in this show can take a huge beating for some reason, but that becomes normal. Also luffy can be cut and pierced, he even says so himself. Also Peg leg dude did it to stay alive so idk what you are mad about there. Chest guy COULDNT break the chest, idk where or how you got the idea of how he could. Also buggy was on a "special ship" (no spoilers) so the captain of the ship doesnt care about money. Also Luffy sometimes can bond with ememys, very rarely tho. Also idk why you mad about luffy bonding with a dog? No one knows what the one piece is, nor did it say that is was all the treasure in the world. Also come the fuck on, you are getting nitpicky on how the barrel was shut? I think the initial implant of the axe hurt but looks like it would work to me. Also theres no complicated attacks that i know so far, so im not sure what ur talking about. Explain to me what Zoro was supposed to learn about a rivals death? I did notice the father smiling which i thought could have foreshadowed something. Also I dont know where you got the idea that she killed herself? I think the main problem you have is you think very negativly, and with the misinformation you get, it doesnt help. I recommend to watch the anime so you dont get misinformed again.

  10. BRUH IF YOU DONT LIKE IT DONT WATCH IT THATS YOUR OPINION THINK ITS TO LONG IDC

  11. Ok then... *cough cough* where to even start (ripping your post to shreds)...

    1. Women in one piece look alike... ok, you're not 100% wrong on that, but there are differences in many. I mean you can find online a game where someone took many of the faces of female characters (and jokingly a few males) and made you guess who they all were. Where it's hard to tell some, many are very noticeable and very easy to decipher who is who. That being said, you can't say everyone is "identical", similar to the semi-racist approach that "all Asians look alike", which is also not true.

    2 (and 3 even) Everyone has a happy ending... and NOBODY dies... hmm, well... lets start with most characters having a terrible past. On top of that you add Roger (the main reason for the story) is executed near the start of the series, Ace is Dead (the authors FAVORITE CHARACTER!), Whitebeard is dead, and seeing all his children together is HAPPY? His commander Ace is murdered which starts the war, and then he himself is impaled multiple times before finally succumbing to his own injuries and dying himself, not sure which part of that is HAPPY. Kuina Zoro's friend as a child dies at a young age. Corazon dies saving Law because he didn't want to give Immortality to Don Flamingo. Newest chapters (SPOILER ALERT) we learn of Odin from Wano who is literally BOILED alive to save his comrades. Also in the Newest Chapters we see Orochi die (probably one of the most GRUESOME deaths) in all of One Piece, for basically being selfish with Kaido. but you know... all ends happily for them.

    4. TOO LONG?! If you're talking about the anime... yes it is, but that's because of FILLERS, but fillers are done to wait for the Author to create more, or give them time to write more story to actually write so there isn't a 4 year hiatus because of catchup. That being said, the manga is impressive with how much there is. Do you realize how much time it takes to A) write a story, and B) draw all of the story boards, shading, writing the dialog, positioning, etc etc. (Meanwhile waiting for it to be translated from Japanese to English on top of that!?). Eiichiro Oda spends almost ALL of his time dedicated to his craft, drawing, writing, (erasing it all and starting over, or fixing mistakes). Yet the man needs breaks. Also why if you keep up with the series you'll usually see "sorry next week One piece is on a BREAK" because it's nice to have a week off from writing once in a while. The man is human, not a superhuman anime character (though superhuman is a decent description of the man).

    5. Exposition is too much? You want less explanation of characters and why they are the way they are. So you want a villain to show up and be BAD just because they're bad? Who cares what makes them tick? So in Batman, you want the Joker to blow stuff up, and cause havoc, but don't care WHY? "He's just a deranged man who has a weird fascination with Batman, and is evil" is enough for you. That's so boring. What purpose is there to care about a character if even the author makes you not care about them. Also the reason Oda explains or does a lot of background of characters is to give you history, sometimes hidden mechanics of the "world history" are in some of the flashbacks. There is a lot of depth, and a lot of history and LOTS of pieces to one piece, that I feel gets lost.

    One piece itself is very similar to Homer's 'The Odyssey', it's an EPIC. A tale pulled out, long, and full of whimsy and wonder, and has a lot to it that you have to pull apart bit by bit to see the whole.

    Sorry you don't enjoy it... good luck finding something with as much depth and story as this series. I'm honestly impressed this anime had me graduate highschool, college, and go through multiple jobs as an adult, and still going strong and just as interesting as it was from the day I started reading it.
