When Does One Piece Animation Get Good? Answered
While the answer may vary depending on who you ask, as diehards will likely tell you the animation has always been good, the majority of people tend to agree that things increase gradually as the series goes on. This makes complete sense, as animation improved year by year since One Piece debuted in 1999.
If you want an actual numbered episode to go by, Water 7 Arc, which starts at episode 229, is where you’ll start to notice a lot more quality in the animation for One Piece. Alternatively, a lot of other people will also say that One Piece reaches its prime animation around episode 600, as the quality reaches the peak animation standards that we have today, especially when it comes to some of the sakuga devoted to Luffy’s fights.
It is also important to note that when it comes to visual quality, episode 44 is a common benchmark that many note where the visual quality isn’t an actual deterrent.
