It's a little late for that. Naruto is getting close to ending, but Kishimoto keeps pulling things out of his ass. It pisses me off. If I didn't read the series out of obligation Good friend of mine is a Narutard. I like knowing just what the hell he's talking about. , I would've dropped it a long time ago. One thing I hate is how Kishimoto had Sasuke return saying, "I'm gonna be Hohkage". I see what he's doing. He's going to make it so Naruto and Sasuke end up in the same position as Madara and the First Hohkage. But you can't all of a sudden do this now. YOu need to build it up. Hint at it. One Piece is doing this right now. Hell, the whole IDEA of Luffy traveling through the Grand Line is supposed to mirror what Gol D. Roger did, and this started waaaaay back in Loguetown. See, this kind of **** is what makes me like One Piece more than Naruto.

Basically everyone gets insanely strong (I mean unbelievably strong) and at some point Luffy decimates 90 000 soldiers by just shouting. The bad guys get really crazy too, it's still interesting after 627 episodes, would recommend to keep watching!

I'm gonna need you to speak in terms of someone who only watched like the first 60 episodes. They just reached the grand line and luffy is already fairly infamous. This is the place where One piece is supposed to be. I realize its a big place but tell me what the **** they've been doing for 540 episodes. Like seriously are they just putting it off because the writers have no idea how to end it? Is the One Piece friendship?

Oda has stated that one piece was originally supposed to only last 5 years.   
but he ended up falling in love with the universe and decided to keep it going for 20 years. He said he will stick with the original ending that he chose but he wanted to expand on the universe.   
Well some of its filler.    
But they don't reach the new world (the second half of the grand line) until after episode 516. Which is after the timeskip.    
But before the timeskip a bunch of **** goes down and a lot of characters show up and luffy puts his goal of finding one piece on hold for a but. So they are doing a lot. But you'll see.   
Water 7/ enies lobby arc is my favorite (pre-timeskip) and you will see why when you reach it.   
Also i suggest skipping filler, because it is unimportant and doesn't overarc.

As a person who doesn't watch anime but is looking to get in to it, can you state what a filler is? I see it used on anime posts all the time, especially Naruto, which I watched when I was younger on Cartoon Network.
Is a filler just useless episodes to fill space to get to a main part of plot?

filler is when an anime catches up to the original manga and then cannot continue a story line and so has to make some separate story up to "fill" in the episodes so the anime does not stop showing as it has very good ratings and is making tons of money.

A filler is something that is non-canon.
Canon = story.
This doesnt apply to shows that dont have a source material like a manga or light novel.
But basically when a show catches up to its source material it needs to slow it down.
So its more of a pick your poison ordeal.
Filler.
Slow pacing.
Seasonal Breaks.
They all suck, but personally i prefer seasonal breaks because it gives time for the studio to make the pacing and animation better. Things arent dragged out and I dont have to painfully wait for the story to become relevant again.

I just finished the Enies lobby arc and it was kind of a disappointment. I'm trying not to spoil anything for people who might be reading it but It was soooo slow and took like 20 episodes for luffy to actually fight, then like another 4 episodes to win, and on the way there were like 5 flashback episodes of the crew joining him....I like the universe and think some of the elements are interesting/unique but the show takes forever to get anywhere. Plus the majority of it feels like filler.

The pacing for the anime is horrible. When you catch up (or if you want to now) red the manga. Its much more enjoyable in my opinion. Although i still enjoy watching my favorite scenes animated.

So the next 540 episodes is just wacky adventure time on the grand line? Im absolutely fine with that.

One last question, does any overarching plot ever come about? or is it just going to stay as an arc to arc kind of thing?

First of all, the video contains spoilers, but it's a great video that captures what's great about the series as well as summarizing the story.    
   
And to answer your question. Yes and no. After they enter the Grand Line, the story starts to have sagas. Each individual island will have it's own arc, but it is part of an overarching story. For example, the series of arcs that start from when they enter the Grand Line up until they're finished with Alabasta is what is known as the "Baroque Works Saga"  though the wiki will say Alabasta Saga despite only a portion of it being on that island. . Then it's the Sky Island saga lasting only two arcs. After that, it's the CP-9 saga  Which is pretty much everyone's favorite at this point. . Then comes the Thriller Bark arc that stands on it's own. It introduces Brook as a character, and another character that causes something that has a lasting effect on the crew. I won't spoil it. After that is the Whitebeard War that even now, the full effects of it's conclusion are still being revealed. Then they had the two year time skip, and they've explored two islands already. The first being Fishman Island  Arlong's hometown. , and a secret government base. Now they're on their third, and are taking on one of the Shichibukai  One of the Seven Warlords of the Sea if you're watching the dub. .    
   
WHen you get to the Davy Back Fight Arc though, I suggest skipping it. It's 100% filler. The worst part is that its canon filler. Actually, skip any filler you can. There's no real point to watching it if it doesn't have any impact later in the story.

I just find the idea that anyone would actually honour the agreement to leave and become a member of a diffrent crew to be absurd.

I mean, Zoro even ******* says, half of them became pirates specifically for Luffy, so if they leave his crew, why stay pirates?

doesn't help that the bad guy of that arc has the most powerful devil-fruit power of all ******* time, and uses it for cheap gimicks instead of to become a total ******* god.

Yeah, his noro noro beam is pretty cool but it's not the most powerful... Devil fruits have their own weaknesses and all that and if you want to call one the most powerful then...whitebeard's tremor fruit? How about blackbeard's darkness fruit or Akaino's magma?

all those are cool and all, but Foxxy can literally stop time.

besides, power of the fruit seems to be directly linked to power of the wielder.

luffy has rubber, but he's pretty strong, because he would be strong without it.

If Foxxy had the tremor fruit, it would probably be limited to minor earthquakes that only serve to upset your balance,

if Whitebeard has the noro noro fruit, then he'd probably be able to freeze then entire Marineford battlefield in a single shot.

darkness seems to be gravity + some other ****
tremor is quakes, powerful, but only because the person wielding it is powerful, magma is just another burny-type attack fruit.

let me put it this way.

forget about punching the rubber guy, hit him with the beam, then immediately stab him in the throat.

bam, main-character down, and there's basically nothing he can do about it.

It's an ability that makes your enemy completely helpless for the duration of the timestop.

It would work just as well against anyone from Sengoku to whitebeard, assuming you can freeze them before they get their Armament defence up.

darkness fruit is more like a black hole.

strongest fruit imo is the Light fruit. Cause the wielder is moving at the speed of light. kicking at the speed of light and shooting lasers at the speed of light. hence his catchphrase "speed is weight".
but then again the phoenix fruit is also OP. instant regeneration + immense strength cuz it's a zoan type fruit AND you can fly.

eh, lightspeed is powerful, too.

not that he actually MOVES at lightspeed, otherwise nobody would have been able to block him, and it's happened atleast two or three times.

I'd go for light fruit, just because it gives you more versitility than the noro noro.

they both serve the same purpose though.

one slows your enemies down, the other speeds you up.

superspeed is the most broken superpower, because if you move fast enough you can do whatever you want before the other person can even react.

shame all we ever see it used for in Western comics is "run rings around the guy, then trip him up" or something.

anyone skilled enough in observation haki gets atleast 0.5 seconds to react even to the wielder of the light fruit.
examples: Phoenix-dude, Old dude (gol d rogers bff), and Z(zephyr).

I am really tired so i can't remember any names. I know phoenix name start with either b or c and old dude is with R. light dude starts with B

I know who you mean, but even if you see it coming, it's still too fast.

how many times do you think lightspeed-dude could attack in ten seconds? even if you see each one coming half a second ahead of it hitting. I dare say it's more than anyone can block.

even if you see them all coming, assuming he's not an idiot he could just throw hundreds of attacks at you continuously until you die.

he never does, because nobody ever presses their advantages in one-piece.

Yeah, the closest is his magatoma move... Kizaru is badass of course and while above it said it depends on the user, that's definitely true. I don't know if it can actually freeze time though and foxy had a small range to actually slow time with...that would improve but darkness fruit cancels it. And while you can slow/freeze time you still have to do a lot to kill 100,000 people where darkness and quake fruits can take em down easily.

I know it's all respective and all that but I can't help but remember how whitebeard split the seas and the very atmosphere itself.

get the noro noro beam wide enough, and you could probably slown an entire army.

then just have your own guys open up with rifles.

sure, bullets might be meaningless to most superhuman, but if they have to stand there and take it? not able to block or dodge?

thing is with the noro noro beam is that say he is fighting akainu and he stops akainu from moving using it he still cant hurt akainu cause he cant use the haki of armament and thus even if he punches akainu during this time he is still punching magma and thus wouldnt hurt akainu. so even though it may be a powerful fruit since the wielder itself is not strong enough to hurt the devil fruit user then the power of the noro noro fruit becomes invalid. but it doesnt mean there isnt potential there

true but seastone is pretty rare to get it seems. u need either a ******* of money (aka crocodile had that seastone cage but he was rolling in cash) or be a part of the government (their ships and the smoke smoke guys weapon). so maybe it is improbably for him to get seastone.

anyways it doesnt have to make sense anyways cause its a anime

and also even though the light fruit is powerful we should take into account the lightning guy. Oda said that if that mantra guy was to have a bounty it would be as large as like Whitebeard or something (like 600 mil or something) which would make him the most powerful being they have faced so far. it just happened that luffy was rubber which directly counters lightning...

The overarching plot is about Luffy finding One Piece and becoming the Pirate King but One Piece is at the end of the Grand Line which you have to follow a chain of islands to reach. So it's in arcs but they do progress the overarching plot simply by going to a new island.

You are right. However, Kishimoto was mainly inspired to create Son based on the character with the same name from the manga series Dragon Ball. In addition, its design is based on Goku's Ōzaru form and his inherited dragon ball that has four stars in it.

Naruto is my favorite anime. I'm not a fan of anime really but for whatever reason I really like naruto. I've watched DBZ, Naruto, Yu-Yu-Hokashow or however the **** you spell it, and that's pretty much it. Pretty basic in the Anime department.

Oh and ALWAYS dubbed. Can't watch that **** subbed. ******* hate Subbed.

I've tried watching Subbed. It's terrible. If i'm looking at the bottom and reading I miss the action that's going on. You can't focus on 2 things at the same time. I want my attention to be on 100% the action.

Also what's so wrong with just listening and watching the show? Why do I HAVE to read if I don't need to?

"Why do I HAVE to read if I don't need to?"

Because in 90% of the cases a major part of the weight behind the words (context, gravity, etc) are lost because it's not the original voice

Voice actors get paid to be able to put emotions into the words they speak. I've cried a few times during Naruto. Many sad emotional parts. I'm sure i'd cry from the subbed as well. It doesn't make a different. The emotion was there regardless of the language it was in. I'd rather listen to what is being said instead of having to read it. That way while i'm listening I can watch what is going on instead of splitting my attention between the 2 things.

Just to give you a perspective, when I was little I caught Star Wars: A New Hope on TV. On ************* PRO SIEBEN (PRO7).
Imagine Darth Vader dubbed by a German. THAT is the kind of sacrilege dubbed movies commit.

For ****** sake, even our country have caught up a bit with the dubbing, especially for kids' movies.
So imagine what it's like to pay to see a movie in which one of the original voices was Morgan Freeman, only to be replaced with a local voice actor.

And yet somehow us, Romanians, even the most elderly of us, with impaired vision, have been successfully doing it EVER SINCE THEY STARTED BROADCASTING DALLAS, BACK IN THE ******* 80s!

Here, EVERY (foreign) movie is subbed. Because we ARE NOT THAT RETARDED TO A LEVEL THAT WE ARE NOT ABLE TO WATCH A SCENE AND READ A ******* SUBTITLE AT THE SAME TIME!

From Hollywood movies, Spanish/Mexican/Columbian/Brazilian soap operas to Bollywood stuff (roflmao at the idea of somebody attempting to dub their ridiculous singing scenes), EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US who is NOT A COMPLETE ILLITERATE poor soul can understand and watch them perfectly while reading their subtitles! Even the 6 year olds, who barely start to learn how to read, can partially do it!

Yes I have the ability to read the subtitles, that doesn't mean I want to. I'm much happier watching the movie and listening to the lines instead of my having to read them.

Vader would say No, I am your father but the subtitles will still ******* read No, yo soy tu padre. So the audience will think that is what Vader is saying AND IT ******* IS WHAT HE'S SAYING. Stop being so god damn nit picky.

Ok I watched 2 episodes actually in order to get a bigger sample size. One episode was an emotional one and the other was an action packed episodes. Both of them I preferred the English dubbed. I felt a lot more emotional from the English dub during the episode. I have no idea what you're talking about with the Japanese voice actors get the emotion across better because I completely disagree. Also I noticed that the conversations were slightly different. Same basic topics but small differences.

I noticed that the Japanese voices are A LOT more high pitched for whatever reason and I did not like that. The female characters just sounded more annoying to me because of this.

The action episode was just terrible. Looking at the bottom, middle, and sometimes even having to look at the top of the screen in order to read what the **** was going on WHILE these 2 characters were in the middle of fighting was just awful. It was annoying as **** and I missed a lot of actions as well as lines.

They're a distraction ESPECIALLY in action packed animes where things are happening VERY quickly. You look away for a second and you'll miss something.

You look down to read, your focus is then split between 2 things. Would you read 2 books at the same ******* time? No. You wouldn't. You actually seem to be the one with issues paying attention. You can't focus on 1 thing at a time. You need to look at 2 or 3 things at once. What is so wrong with giving 1 thing your undivided attention so you can feel more encompassed by it? I want to hear the characters voice say the lines, not my own inner voice reading them.

It's not the same thing, for the love of god!

"You look down to read, your focus is then split between 2 things."

It's NOT split, because we have this wonderful thing called PERIPHERAL VISION!
You literally only need to catch a glimpse of the subtitles to read them in less than 1 second. It's literally an innate and basic thing to do.
That is, if you're not too ******* lazy to even think, let alone read.

That is, if you can actually READ fluently.

You're kind of right, but now that I finished reading your comment I noticed that Naruto made a shadow clone into a Shuriken. I didn't notice that while reading your message. I thought he just threw one, not that it was one of his clones. Those are the QUICK split second things I'm talking about that you miss sometimes if you aren't paying attention.

Also is this gif sped up? Because if it's real time there is no way in **** I would be able to read those subtitles. They aren't even up for a second. Like the ones where naruto does the hand signs and his clone appears. There's a good sentence there, not just 1 or 2 words, and i'm not sure who could read that in their first look.

THAT IS THE ******* POINT! That some things CAN'T be translated and that you can at most approximate/get close to the original thing.

"Dattebayo", for instance, means nothing in particular, it's a catchphrase of sorts. The thing is he uses the suffix "ttebayo" in many sentences, thus creating a jargon that the character uses (some sort of "street talk")

For instance, try to imagine translating the slang from "A Clockwork Orange" into Italian. Or, heaven forbid, German!

eh, the anime drags on a little bit, and has no blood in it, which looks pretty silly when you KNOW there was gallons of the stuff pouring out of Zoro in the first season, but Manga can make it hard to see what's going on it fightscenes.

Actually, it's worse than no blood, it wouldn't bother me if they just made up their minds, but it seems to vary from episode to episode or second to second. you see luffy bleed a little from punches and stuff, but the guys zoro chops up don't spill a drop.

I remember Decken got impaled, it cut to blood dripping on the floor, then cut back to his body, he was holding his hand over his chest, but there wasn't a drop of blood on his shirt, in the next scene he removes his hand and he's completely unmarked.

where have you seen up to?

I'm pretty sure 4Kids gave up really early on, but I'm watching a sub i found online, looking at episode 600ish

like i said in my first post, the really early stuff, like arlong park, had tons of blood, but the later stuff gets...strange about it.

some people bleed and some don't. heroes bleed from cuts and scrapes, but the guys that zoro blasts away with his magic blue sword lasers don't seem to spill a drop.

The anime is pretty ******, tho, to be honest.

You'd be surprised how often the story is toned down for the anime version of some manga. Not to mention, manga rarely has filler.

At least it has better fillers than Bleach...

Also, the original Naruto had one of the best soundtracks of all the time

I suppose you're right. Actually, I just hate the fans.
And while we're talking about soundtracks, One Piece (One of my favorite Anime/Manga) has some of the WORST songs Ive ever heard.
