And quality should be constant. Last 2 arcs of One Piece were mostly crap, with a couple of awesome parts. That's just not good enough. I blame it more on bad direction than on animation to be honest.
Of course, some other popular animes have the same problem.
EDIT: Lol, imagine what Jet Gatling could do now.

There's nothing to discuss about altering fillers being inappopriate changes to the storyline, and it's something extremely different from how an episode's conception is realized in general (aka drawing style, animation and pacing). And yes, IMO such fillers can crap the whole arc. I've stopped watching Shippuuden and Bleach because of their fillers, and halted OP for the Amazon Lily arc because of Naoki Tate.
It's one chapter per episode, for quite some time now and whining about that won't change anything, since for Toei and Fuji there's absolutely no need to change that: One Piece is #3 of all anime TV shows in Japan thus the most successful modern anime TV show.
If you take your time to read a chapter with all its details, you'll easily take a quarter of an hour too, don't you? At least I do, because I want to enjoy reading and watching OP - what altering and ooc fillers just simply disrupt. (And yes, as a Hancock fan I hated the fillers in episodes 470 and 471)
I just started to compare "canonical" episodes and chapters to list up the changes for the German One Piece wikia - and believe me, I'm pretty much pissed about that starting with Robin's wrong color of eyes and the more I go into details...
Maybe it's because I just didn't swept over the images in the manga noticing many shocked characters but looking into each one's facial expression to feel their horror. My bad one...
Dragon Ball video on Youtube. Compare it with the quality of any One Piece episode. The difference is obvious.

Yeah, but if the quality is good but the animation is crap why bother watch it and in times where we have HD and 3D the quality shouldn't be an option it's an obligation to attract people.
Edit : This is a shōnen where we have fights. ^^

Also, I've been repeating I prefer Dragonball. Fuck DBZ, especially after Namek. That video you pulled out is crap.
On topic here we're not getting any one on one fights. I see where you're getting at I miss those too. But this is the marineford arc. Of course it's gonna look somewhat sloppy. Very few fights last five seconds. I mean they could put in work but personally it would be wasted effort. But one can dream.
Shabaody archipelago had good animation, but the drawings were awful... :3
One Piece is lacking good animation, and is not becuase of staff, if you see movie 10 you'll see.
Its just because of budget... crisis affects every market!
It still can't compare with Enies Lobby, in my opinion.
As I said, I realize there's no place in this arc for one on one fights, and that's not what I was getting at. With just a slightly better direction, every episode could be great. Ffs, it takes a real genius to fuck up an arc that shows a giant battle. Oda gave them EVERYTHING!
It's just being ruined by all the forced stalling, giving me the same feel I had watching Bleach "Winter War". You feel like everyone's taking it easy there, especially retarded Boa. If she started throwing her underwear at Luffy next episode, I wouldn't even be surprised.
I hope they pick up the pace now when Whitebeard is on the move. No time to fuck around now, just show us the battle.
It's not just crisis. It's the lack of creativity.

Did I hear "best animation" ? Water 7 was animated the best imo. Big buildings, huge skylines, lots of flowing water. Just beautiful.

Yeah, not sure what the animation staff is thinking, especially since it's been proven that they can do much better. These episodes were made a few months before though (Iva's VA was arrested in July IIRC, we didn't see the voice change till a month ago), so back then the anime was really close to the manga. They might just have opted to 'waste time' in favor of making good episodes.
Still doesn't explain why they were so lazy though...
This WK episode was ok still alot of talk about Sqaud and WB and family stuff, etc... Other than that I thought the fight scene through out this arc was well animated...well some part but it could have been better.
Some ppl complain about this arc not having 1 on 1 fight well I think it's better Oda didn't have every single one of those characters in a single battle because other wise this anime/manga would become Bleach. It's fast paste, and a lot of interruption going on around just like a real war. This arc would still be going right now if it did have 1 on 1 fights.
