    Watching One Piece episodes Dilemma :/

    Okayy.. So after marathoning 600+ eps im stuck with no more episodes left to watch. Waiting a week for an episode is a pain and the pacing in Once Piece is kinda slow..
    Do u watch the episode the day it releases?
    Do wait wait for 5-6 episodes to stack up and watch it at one go?
    Do u wait for an arc to pass and the watch it?
    Please share a few ideas cuz ive been watching some other anime for a while and im kinda missing One Piece. Should i wait? Should watch now? Idk :/
    Thanks

    PS: im new so i have no idea if i posted in the correct section..

    Errrr, we are not based on the Anime but the Manga here ^^

    Anyway, for me it's everyweek. I wake up wednesday, I roll my blunt and then I read the manga.
    And when there is a break, I cry.
    Some of my friends wait 1 or 2 months to read/watch it, but I don't like it. My way is to read once and then read the book in my language
    Still 15 years to go dude ^^

    I skip the anime.
    Animating in Japan is one of the world's most stressful jobs. They usually do not finish the episodes til about 10-15 minutes before it airs.
    The anime is required to be a certain amount of chapters behind the manga but it's hard to keep that realistic with Oda taking as many breaks as he does in the manga; thus we are stuck with them stretching one chapter out over 2-3 episodes and it still not being enough with all of his breaks lately.

    TLDR; the anime is slow and boring and has a lot of unnecessary BS that doesn't add to the value of the material but takes away. And it really falls onto the Japanese management culture and strict scheduling and will not change anytime soon. Read the manga.

    I am currently rewatching it too but sadly I don't have as much free time as I used to so it's at a slow pace.I recommend you watch hunter x hunter 2011 or other shounens too and wait untl the dressrosa arc ends then you can marathon it.One piece is better when marathoned each arc,so instead of waiting every week just wait until a arc ends ends airing

    Yea, i hear that oda falls sick often while working on the manga and therefore the the anime catches up causing slower pacing (well at least there isnt as many fillers like bleach lol)
    Anyway, is the manga better? Im currently reading the manga from beginning. If the manga is better, ill carry on to the current chapters. Maybe ill watch the episodes later

    Thanks renders. Ive watched hxh 2011, stopped at the chimera ant arc and waiting for the eps to stack up
    While marathoning, the slow pacing isnt much of a problem i guess

    IMO the manga is far better and has so much interesting little things than the Anime that I only watch the fillers animes which story doesn't appear in the manga.
    But man, I'd love to be at your place and begin One Piece manga again You'll discover OP real world, the one drawn by ODA !
