The results only confirmed what everybody here did already knew, that most members are in their twenties and have grown up with the manga boom of the 90s/early 2000s. Can we restart the poll with narrower age groups as suggested before?
And I would add the boom happened in the 90s and early 2000s due to the fact it was this time where almost every manga was getting an anime, English Dubs arrived had arrived on the scene in big numbers at that time too.
How about from... 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39 and so forth?
21. I forgot when I started reading it but I think it was around 2006, but I was aware of it longer than that. I had the US jump issue when it was still at chapter 15. I remember distinctly because I remember seeing Zoro with his bandana and three swords and thinking "This guy looks awesome!" and proceeded to create a few characters based off of his look. Ah, those were the days.

wow someone's in the 200 range...
started watching OP around early 2000s, around my teens at the time, now im 28.. geez how time flies. hope i get to see it til the end of this awesome manga.
Started reading One Piece 2 or 3 years ago ! And I'm 30. And I'll read it until the end !!!!
I also think that a poll with different age groups will be more relevant !!
I'm also in the 19~29 group but... well, I'm a very recently newbie in the OP fandom! I started reading it this year and now I'm really hooked to the series!!!! I had watched 3 or 4 anime episodes at different times in the past (all of them from different arcs). They seemed interesting to me but I never went further. And all thanks to a friend who is an Oda's fan! She told me to try it and now here I am!
I started One Piece in 2006 and stopped at the Arlong arc since I was finding it a bit silly also at that time One Piece seemed like it would be cemented in 3rd place as long as Bleach and Naruto existed and Naruto at the time was 1st.
I watched tons of other shows and then was begged to try it again. Picked up in 2012 from Arlong arc since somehow my memory of so far was perfect and then yeah... Now I'm hooked.
Although back in 2006, the plot twists were far from fulfilled.
23 here. Although started when I was 16
Im 26 and turning 27 in few months.
Started reading One Piece when I was 21 after seeing Gia Secando AMV "Wanted"
18. Started reading it when I was 13
I only started reading OP this year, but I watched the first season back when I was 15 or so.I guess I didn't get hooked up right away. I'm 24 years old now and this year I decided to catch up on the manga. I don't regret it .
The interesting is we have like 88 ppl 19-30 and if you hear some of the way they think its like they are way lower than that which is kinda disapointed
In the main group for 5 more years, I discovered OP when I went to Japan only 3 years ago :P
