I'm at the very, VERY begining, only watched 6 episodes so far, so I know shit gets crazy later. But fuck, I'm enjoying theese first few episodes, and years ago as a kid I read a couple of random manga chapters later in the series and remember certain parts being really cool.

I never thought I'd get into something this egregiously long and ongoing, but fuck, it's already a lot of fun.

Fuck.

On episode 14 now; I'm already having a blast. Love the characters introduced so far, and knowing that it gets absolutely crazy later, seeing then at the very start of their pirate career is really cool.

If you like the start youll love the series.

if it helps One Piece is a show that seems too long. But there will come a time were you binge it and youll wish it was longer

The walk to Arlong Park is where people usually get sold on the series. So if you already like it, by the time you get there you'll be hooked.

Its fine, the anime doesn't start showing the first bad signs of pacing issues until episode 200 something/the start of the water 7 arc. You can see how they started catching up to the manga a bit once anime enies lobby starts. After that short bounty hunter family filler arc, thriller bark is when they start kicking you in the nuts with blatant pacing issues, lol.

It then gets worse when marineford pops up, and "oh my god please end my suffering" when dressrosa anime happens.

Up until that arc (or swapping to reading once thriller bark starts) anime watchers should be good to go.

I remember when I first discovered one piece the anime was just getting to the end of the water 7 episodes and going into the enies lobby arc......watched 260 something episodes in the span of what, 6 days I think. God damn was I hooked something serious.

If theres one single anime I should try, what is it? I liked Cyberpunk and Arcane a lot.

I considered this show, Avatar, a couple others but a lot have an absurd amount of episodes.

Difficult question, depends on the kinds of media you like in general. I can give some generic recommendations?

If you dislike anime and long series altogether, the studio ghibli movies are a good entry point, assuming you havent seen them.

Other movies that technically count as anime but arent like, anime would be paprika and akira.

You'd maybe like Ghost in a Shell. And then moving towards more anime-anime, you have cowboy bebop, samurai champloo, sword of the stranger...

Most anime series have somewhere between 24 and 30 episodes.

Cool, I'll look into it. I actually saw Akira years ago and liked it, but I can count on one hand how many others like it I've watched.

Wife is getting into it more, shes watching something called Demon Hunter, so I figured I may as well explore it a bit if she's getting into it.

Demon Hunter is cool but it is peak anime. Like all the cliches, it has all of them.

There's a genre of anime called "shonen" (which technically is more of an age/gender group than a genre, but anyway) - and that is what most people think of when they're talking about anime. Things like One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Demon Hunter, etc. Cool teenagers defeating monsters with their chosen one abilities, the power of friendship, etc. It's usually some self-insert fantasy story.

You might like the seinen category, which tends to be a bit more mature in its themes. Monster is a great example of this.

Still a lot of cliches in that genre though.

Different generation and amazing animation, is my guess. Bleach was super popular too and that entire thing was basically invented because the author wanted to draw cool stuff, lol

I wouldn't personally count Avatar as an anime, but it is a great show that I highly recommend.

Yu Yu Hakusho is one of my all time favorite shows, and if you want a silly and just straight up fun anime movie, Redline has become an all time favorite for me personally.

Arlong is the moment where if you still don't like it you should probably quit, and if you liked what came before it makes you love the series
