I read the manga up to little island before taking a break, this series is fairly good if I think the battles to character sections were a bit uneven at times(although it might just be Shonen cliche by now) but I think once in awhile someone other than Luffy should deal with the main baddy of the arc especially in the Kuro arc which honestly I think had wasted potential

As for the voice acting, Japanese is AWESOME for most of it and I like certain touches that were lost in some of the dub(though weirdly some of the performances were present in the 4Kids dub only like Arlong's dramatic flair)

Odex well... usually they are closer to Animax quality in voices, poor acting, a bit blandish voices but passable enough but here there's quite a lot of cringe inducing voices particularly Luffy, Ms Valentines Day, Usopp's first voice and Krieg's but there were a few good sprinkled every now and then

4Kids, I have a love hate for this dub, I really dig a lot of the voices especially villains, 4Kids really know how to make them unique and memorable and can take subtle hints though they too had their stinkers like Tashigi and Yasopp but the translation was really extremely censored like their later Pokemon dub and Mew Mew Power but the PS2/Gamecube games redeemed them... if only they had a better ADR...

And that leaves us with Funimation, I know almost everyone loves it, it was more faithful than 4Kids without the weird voices that bogged Odex but I'm kinda love hate with this too they didn't sanitize the show but sometimes there are places they tried to be more edgy instead and I don't like it at all, the voice acting was mostly solid but some of the more notable villains particularly Arlong and Crocodile just sounds so booooooring and this was something 4Kids was very good at

In my mind, the One Piece anime is kinda average simply because the dragged out pacing often dulls the impact that the source material has. The manga is definitely one of the best shounens out there, but after Water 7, the anime pacing slowed to a halt to milk it as much as possible without having to do much filler.

Despite this, voice acting in both English (Funimation) and Japanese is great. I slightly prefer some of the English voices, and I think Funimation does a pretty stellar job from the parts I've heard.

(After watching 4Kids dub as a 11 year old)
Me: Yay! They defeated Arlong! Now to rescue Bellmere... They're leaving the island? Where is Bellemere?

(Watching the FUNi dub years later)
Me: Okay now Arlong will put her in the dungeon and...
(BANG!)
...oh

@itsmedeadpool Wait a minute. This is One Piece: Heart of Gold they're recording. Guess we'll know earlier who's voicing Gild Tesoro in the Dub.

People do moan about TPC Pokemon a lot but keep on forgetting that One Peice has 3 bad dubs which are bad in different ways.

1 is censored bad, 1 is plain dreadful all round and 1 is just only mid par voice acting.

Funimation and Unofficial subbed versions only for me all the voices are fitting, the story is great, it's all round fun with darkness, completely uncensored, exactly what One Peice should be.

I guess if I were to pick a least bad dub thats so bad it's good rather than plain bad or dreadful it's the one by the same people as my preferred subbed experience Funimation of course.

@TEOL Well I respect your opinion, but I will always prefer the Funimation dub. I tend not to agree with the voices in the Japanese versions for Toei series'. Especially for Goku and Franky. But that doesn't stop me from watching the Japanese version. Well except for Dragon Ball Z/GT/Z Kai/Super/end of Ball.

@Ichigo341578926 er... I won't get myself involved in Goku argue, but what's wrong with Franky's voice? Not to mention that it's not Toei's choice. Character himself was created by the author with Kazuki Yao's voice in mind

@AntonKutovoi I'm most certain that the whole me not agreeing with the casting in the Japanese versions of Toei series' is more coincidence then Toei's fault. But as to Franky's voice I feel it's too goofy. Like they took the appearance and just left that out as a factor when casting him instead of giving him a goofy but still strong sounding voice. Also, whenever it gets to a serious scene with Franky in the Japanese version It's hard to take seriously when he sounds like that and it end up killing the scene for me. And it's not like with Pica where they at least acknowledged that their voice was weird either. Also I feel Japan casts Kazuki Yao as stronger looking characters way more than necessary. Especially since I don't think he's well suited for them. I mean I'm willing to give him roles like Sidoh in Death Note,
Zamielmon in Digimon Fusion, Yoki in Fullmetal Alchemist, Kao in Inuyasha: the Final Act, Mr. 2 Bon Clay and Jango, or Stinger in Zoids: Chaotic Century. But other roles like Franky I just don't think he's suited for.

@Ichigo341578926 but Kazuki Yao was not casted as Franky. Franky was created specifically for Kazuki Yao.

@AntonKutovoi Then that makes me find the casting even weirder. Why would Eichiro Oda do that and not acknowledge that he's supposed to have a goofy voice? And I'll still never agree with it by the way. It sounded wrong when I first heard it three years ago, and it still sounds wrong to me know. And I'm just going to mention this I heard his Japanese voice first. So it's not a matter of me having heard the English voice and didn't like the Japanese because I was comparing the two.

Honestly, I'd probably be more interested in watching this show if it wasn't OVER 700 EPISODES LONG.

I might be able to handle it if I discovered it at a much earlier time (and by that I mean more than 2 years ago), but man it's just too much for me.

@Zillah Yeah that's one of the reasons why I've never particularly commented to watching it fully either. Kinda wish I didn't drop out of watching it a few years back but oh well.

@Zillah When it comes to long shows, my method of watching them is to do so by arcs. Watch up to the point you get tired, then take a break, and tackle another story arc or two when you feel up to it. It takes a while, but it's a lot less overwhelming. And if you stick to the FUNimation dub, that's close to 300 less episodes to worry about. The FUNimation dub has a slower release rate too, which also helps.

@1dbad Honestly, I grew up reading the comics, which are straight-up just a better medium for this story, & even though I stopped at volume 30 back then(now at 48, there are like 75 volumes)...it's a helluva lot easier than watching the show.

There's just so much Dragon Ball Z-like dragging out of the animated series (they also reuse sound effects, because cheap Toei)...IMO it's just prefereable to read the comics.

@huzaifa_ahmed Understandable. I actually think an animated medium works well for the story, because the music, voice acting, etc. all adds to the experience for me. That said however, I am starting to see what you mean. I'm up to Enies Lobby now, and there's a very noticeable difference in how they're adapting the series now. Recaps are longer than ever, and we're even getting filler/flashback episodes mid-story. Toei's adaptation has never been perfect, but they used to do a lot better job.

I have yet to read the manga, but I definitely plan to do so. I am curious to see how my opinion will change once I do that. (and I'm looking forward to seeing the differences)

@Zillah I believe TOEI & Oda to an extent is to blame for why it's so long. One Piece moves at a snail pace and most of it feels like filler. It's enough to turn people off from One Piece. That's its major flaw.

@Zillah You could maybe check out the comics? They themselves are over 70 volumes, but it's still faster to read a volume than it is to watch a DVD's worth of episodes.
