One Piece has it's pros and that means that it also has its cons. A while back I did a post on why I would advise people to avoid starting One Piece as well as why they should start it. Yesterday I discussed a few reasons why I like One Piece and so it is only fair to discuss things that I dislike about the series. Here I shall discuss four of my core reasons for disliking the series, even though I am a fan.
As one of the first few questions I answered the question of why I think people should watch One Piece, but that did not cover what I personally like about the series. There are a few reasons why I personally like and enjoy One Piece. Here I shall discuss four of my core reasons for liking the series.
Every reader I know has their preferred medium. Some readers like the hard copy and others prefer the digital. You also get the readers that listen to their books or just do not care how they get to consume their story. Working in a book store has taught me that there are many different types of readers.
There seems to be an imagined hierarchy with some anime viewers who believe watching subbed anime is better than watching dubbed. I do not agree nor buy into that. Thus, I included this question into the series. This one is obviously only for the anime watchers. The manga focused question will be posted in a few hours.
Over the years of watching and reading One Piece, I have managed to gather some merchandise. I shall share pictures of the merch I have, I am just sad that none of it is actually licensed. The only piece of licensed merch from One Piece that I probably have on my shelves is actually owned by my brother. He purchased it and it somehow wound up at my place on my shelf. He knows it is here - probably. Although a poster or two and maybe a few other pieces of my merch.
The question of what is your favourite ability in One Piece can be interpreted in multiple ways. It can be seen as asking broadly for your favourite devil fruit or fighting style. It can also be seen as do you prefer Devil Fruits, fighting abilities or the voice of all things. So for this post I shall answer which I like of the three over all and then specifically which fighting style and which devil fruit I like.
