The creator of
One Piece, Eiichiro Oda is a genius story-teller and dubbed to be the best foreshadower in the world of anime.
One Piece is full of awesome plots, amazing plot-twists, and story-anticipation.
Though the One Piece anime may seem childish, the storyline isn’t.
Many viewers were tricked to reckon that One Piece is meant for younger audiences due to its cartoony aesthetic (compared to other classic animes like
Naruto & Bleach).
Contrary to popular belief, the storyline is loaded full of intense, emotional and heartbreaking moments that will bring tears to viewers’ eyes.
The emotions are so strong that they allow viewers to connect with the characters extremely deeply despite their aesthetic.
This explains why there are so many fervent and hardcore One Piece fans today (including yours truly) even when the show has been continuously airing for more than two decades.
No anime has done as good as One Piece in terms of
loyal fans and longevity. Further reading:
