    For the most part you can jump between them & get the same awesome experience, but the extent of the filler content in the anime is a really big shock, and I don't just mean straight-up filler episodes. I didn't truly realize how pervasive the additional/extended scenes were until I started reading the older manga chapters (I'm currently up to the battle at Alubarna).

    Pretty much agree with the above statements. The anime is great up until the New World like NK mentioned, where it just slows down waaaaay too much. And avoid fillers too. But for the most part it's really well done. That being said the manga is pretty fantastic too and some of the spreads and chapters Oda draws are just stunning in how detailed and full they are.

    You guys made my decision even harder lol.

    Maybe I will do anime for a while then switch to manga, and just do anime after that for certain fights and experiences like I wish I did for Naruto and other Mangas.

    If you are buying the actual volumes or have good scans to read I definitely recommend reading the manga over watching the anime.

    I've re-read OP a few times now just on scans and the quality of the scans early on is not great. I would say look and see what you can find and if you can deal with that. Even with crumby scans I personally would still rather read the manga but I know that's not for everyone.

    It honestly takes until like... Water 7 for the manga to have accurate names of stuff and that's downright embarassing.

    If I was going to go back and rewatch, I'd stop after Enies Lobby but probably hit up some parts of Impel Down/Sabaody/Marineford.

    I have the vivid memory of Luffy and the Tenryubito(without spoilering)being a very epically portrayed moment in the anime. I stopped watching it after Marineford and only stayed on manga since then, but I would say at least up till the war it was great to watch.

    Thriller Bark is also really well animated. Both the manga and the anime are funny and both do the comedy well. So yeah, coin toss there lol.

    Post timeskip though, outside of maybe the first 2 episodes, just stick to the manga for the majority of it and maybe watch the anime for the big fight moments. Like, Mermaid Island is slow as fuck in the anime up until 10 vs 100,000, but then that part has a couple episodes that are worth watching as it just shows off the crew post-skip.

    Tbf I found Mermaid arc to be a bit dull in general, and even a part of Punk Hazard too.

    I totally agree. 10 vs 100000 was the best part purely because it showed off the crew's new abilities from the time skip training. Outside of that and some bits of plot development towards the end of the arc, it was a little boring

    Things didn't really pick up post time skip until around midway through the Dressrosa Tournament when you know who came back. After that the shenanigans started happening and we got an amazing development in a character

    I mean, there were fun moments here and there, but the consistency wasn't there beforehand is what I mean

    Fishman island and Dressrosa were mostly ass. Dressrosa had some crazy moments but both were pretty long and drawn out and fairly underwhelming. Punk Hazard was ok (Minus the cool yeti brothers), and WCI arc is so far pretty good.

    Yeeeep.. the entire thing hinges on the cake making BM call off her family. Not a great gimmick, but it's what fits the situation.

    The thing is even if that happens, is Luffy gonna just stop in the middle of a fight with someone tougher than him? That feels like it just goes against his pirate honor or something.

    Dang. This is starting to get close to Summit War in how tense it's getting. I really am curious how they plan to get Luffy out of this.

    What was Luffy grinning about? Were his hands stuck to hit mouth there from the mochii? Seems like he figured out a way to fight him.
