    Re: What do you say to people who hate One Piece?

    Go @#ck yourself. Just kidding, but I think a part of the reason the casual American doesnt like OP or likes Naruto more is because of that awful dub that was for many their introduction to OP. If they gave it chance by watching the Japanese version with the English subs or read the manga I think it would've caught on with more people. While the voices of Naruto in the english version are somewhat annoying at least it wasn't edited like OP was. Fox tried to make OP a Saturday morning cartoon while Naruto got to appear on Cartoon Network which only really cut out the language and the blood. I enjoy Naruto but there are so many unanswered questions which I'm not sure will ever be answered, also the focus on the sharingan it gets frustrating since I see this fantastic world that could be explored instead of other things. With OP I know that interesting and DIVERSE ( not everyone has a sharingan cough cough) characters will continue to pop up throughout the story.

    Re: What do you say to people who hate One Piece?

    I know this is an old thread, but I liked the topic. I've encountered it a lot too. For most people it's that it is more cartoonish, but when I remind them of their roots and talk about the creativity of it their tune changes to surprise. To me, One Piece is the best shounen manga there is. It truly captures all that the genre implies. It was a series that took awhile to establish enough to really be all that stimulating, but once it had it truly does just capture your heart. It has the spirit of Dragon Ball and so much more. The principles Oda writes with on every creative and story telling level are all I could hope for in an author. I just hope for those skeptics to give it a try and stick with it awhile if they are fans of shounen. I promise they'll love it by the time the Skypiea arc rolls around.

    Re: What do you say to people who hate One Piece?

    People who hate ONE PIECE= people who hate creativeness.


    Can someone message me an anime that's similar to d grayman or claymore or deathnote?

    Ive seen Deathnote, deadman wonderland, fairytale, shigurui, ao no exorcist, beelzebub, samurai champloo, code geass, devil may cry, Hakuouki, monster, blood plus, gantz. Basically, something with demons and gore.

    I've seen plenty of people say the hate One Piece, usually members of other shounen fandoms. Most that I have seen don't actually read One Piece. Don't like the art, too long, etc.

    It's called being open minded and not attacking people for what they like.

    I'd just make fun of their favorite series. :>

    Re: What do you say to people who hate One Piece?

    I don't really buy the "too long" excuse, for any manga/series. Shouldn't really read a series just to get to the current stuff, it's not a race to the ending. It's often more enjoyable to read chapter in groups rather than waiting weekly. That said, as long as people have a legit reason, I don't really care if they dislike OP.

    Re: What do you say to people who hate One Piece?

    Tastes are tastes.... everyone's entitled to their own. There's no need to say anything to people who say they hate One Piece; except maybe to keep their objections to themselves if it's offensive.

    Some people prefer ice cream over cake; some don't.
    Some people prefer dating nicer looking people to people with better character; some don't.

    Incidentally, bonds based solely on looks (or other shallow judgments) usually aren't very mature and don't last very long; which is why One Piece has an older, more mature and broader audience. People who just watch anime or read manga for "mature looking" art or is satisfied with something that has minimal depth in plot to drive their interest in the shounen genre just won't be interested in investing the time and effort that really has to be made before the enjoyment of something like One Piece can be felt.

    I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that; just that I know a lot of people who started watching Naruto or Bleach, for example, because they thought they were the best thing on TV and either just lost interest, or hate it and still continues to watch/read just because they want to know how they end or don't want their earlier investment in those manga to go to waste. I can't say I've talked to many (if any at all) who would say the same about One Piece.

    It depends on the level of their hatred.

    to add to this, when I finally caught up (I think during the month hiatus two years aog?) to the series, I thought it was totally worth the long read.

    To me, it depends on their experience with it thus far. If they're being prejudice I'm going to try to persuade them to see the error of that.

    Re: What do you say to people who hate One Piece?

    I never really cared. In my opinion, outright hating a product that is supposed to entertain is one of the stupidest things to do, you either like it or you are indifferent to it. If it is the latter, i just think that they miss out on a lot but i don´t really care about it, just like i don´t care that the majority of young people or people in general in my country do not watch anime or read manga, or the majority at my age does not listen to Classical Music and so forth.
