And what made you think so? Without any reasoning I can't understand what should be so bad about it? Oda introduced sky islands to us, revealed another kind of humanoid species[the wings] and introduced us further into the history of the world while giving us a hint of Rogers journey and power.
Thriller Bark. The enemies were annoying as hell, and it was one of the most boring places they have ever visited. The only thing that almost made me like the arc, was when the entire straw hat crew minus Luffy and Nami teamed up to defeat Oars/Oz. I thought it would be cool for once for the crew to defeat a very powerful villain, plus I always love teamwork battles. But in the end it was Luffy who defeated Oars on his own.
Why 7 votes on Kuro arc? It wasn't great when compared with things to come, but at the time it was pretty good. Also who voted Enies Lobby :O
a antagonist being hated means that the antagonist is good/well done/well played since antagonist are to be hated not loved

The humanoid race was nothing to go on about imo, of course this is subjective. The poneglyph and roger's message, such a small small part of the arc, was interesting but could have happened anywhere. Honestly Robin finding this stuff was the best part of the arc. I could not bare that arc. I could have lived without it. If you like all the arcs then by all means do, but it's not like that for me. Either way Oda is still a great mangaka.
haha I guess
but hate the character as antagonist is a good thing
but not satisfied of the character as antagonist is a bad thing
Well, I did like the thriller bark arc and some moria because moria have some insights of the new world and come back defeated. we also have seen a pirate that uses his powers as summon/many allied beings to aid him in power. This is what I don't like the most of all powers, summon/calling a being to fight for you so he is already have a bad impression on me.
Well what interest me in that arc is that they really depend on Luffy as the captain and Luffy needed much help against a shichibukai and not put an ass pull power from himself to defeat moria. moria is strong but not as strong as what the other shichibukai are.
jimbei is strong, can even fight on land but 50% power lol and on tie with ace even. but who would fight a fishman underwater though... oh yeah Sanji
i read the all 600 chapters in less than 2 weeks and of course i liked alot more arcs than others. the beggining isnt anything special, it is good. In my oppinion OP only started getting great when they we they got to water7 , until then it was good , with moments better than others but i kinda think that the strengt of OP his definetily the beggining. o for me it only started being very good when they arrived to water7 , arcs like davy back fight was just ...... and worse than that for me it was skypea . i think its interesting the fact that there is islnads on the sky but i dont know when i was reading i was only hoping to reach the end, cuz some parts were very annoying. Since water7 till now its being great, not counting with thriller bark of course, it was so damm boring. i think the problem of the skypea and thriller bark is that oda took to much time to do the thinks , we was slow, and that made it boring , despite the fatc that those arcs are not that bad , cuz in one SH discover and managed to get to the sky island and the other we get to know another shichibukai. the only arc that was boring and the history behind it was super weak was davy fight , if it wasnt the appearance of aokiji it would have been just terrible, but even with this said i will give the worst arc to skypea cuz oda could have made it alot alot more interesting and not as boring as almost everyone think it is

Actually I don't think that many people think Skypiea is boring, if you check here, it's even one of the favorite one. Personnaly I put it in a higher place than the marineford arc. The strorytelling and the pace where much better and Skypiea flashback is also better than Luffy's one
And davy back is not boring. You can call it uninteresting but it's not boring
Davy Back Fight and Skypeia are actually among my top 5, mostly because they focus on the SHs as a crew. The 2nd match for Davy Back Fight was my favorite part, with the Zoro/Sanji tag team; but the entire arc focused on the SHs rather than the villains. Skypeia was mostly the same deal, with the storyline as a background and highlighting how great the SHs were as a group. I feel like Thriller Bark might have had a similar purpose with all the team fights, but unfortunately the slow pace slightly ruined it.
My least favourite arc is tied between Davy back fight and Thriller bark cause I find both arcs boring and ridiculous. Nuff said. -_-

Thriller Bark really DIDN't do it for me.
I was going to say skipia arc but then i saw davy back fight arc and i went... oh its true there was such an arc.. guess it was so bad my mind tried to get rid of that memory
Why are the 4 chapters after they leave the Enies Lobby Island seperated into the "Post Enies Lobby arc"? When really it was just the wrap up of the events from Enies Lobby.
Same with "Post-War Arc" thing. That's only, what, one flashback + 3 chapters?
Just saying it seems a bit silly when you have to compare the long arcs such as Enies Lobby with these made-up short arcs with nothing in them of consequence.
And I voted Little Garden arc. Mr 3 wasnt a good villain for me (and he was teamed with a collection of c-grade villains), the giants were overrated then understated, I couldnt relate to Zoro half cutting his legs off and Ussop "saving the day" was a terrible character development. Also: Dinosaurs? Really?
Interesting how everyone's going for Thriller Bark or Davy Back fight, but I understand that really they were heavily overshadowed by the W7/EL saga which they border.
