When does animation get better in One Piece?

Oh, the Great Animation Upgrade! I'd say it kicks in around episode 207, right at the start of the Water 7 Arc. That's when the artwork and animation get a noticeable bump-up in quality. But brace yourself, because by the time you hit Episode 517, marking the beginning of the time skip (Post-War arc), it's like they cranked the quality dial to 11. The difference is like night and day, with more consistent character designs and fluid animation.

Trust me, stick around till the Wano Country Arc. The animation there? Chef's kiss! It’s like One Piece got a full-blown anime glow-up. They introduced a new director and a new character designer for this arc, and it shows. The colors pop, the movements are smoother, and the battles are just... *mwah* magnifique. You can tell they really stepped up their game to match the arc’s hype.

Animation quality? Who cares when the story is this good! One Piece could be in stick figures and I'd still watch it for the epic adventures and the bonds of the Straw Hat crew. But yeah, Water 7 and Wano have nice animations if you're into that sorta thing.

Honestly, it's not just about when it gets better, but how you get better at noticing the little things. One Piece's charm isn't just in the big battles or flashy powers; it's in the goofy faces, the tear-jerking backstories, and the way it grows on you. Sure, Water 7 and Wano look fantastic, but don't skip the journey there. Every episode has something that'll make you smile or pump your fists in excitement.
