When does One Piece start to get good quality?

Honestly, One Piece is solid from the get-go, but the Alabasta Saga (episodes 62-135) is where things get real serious. That's when the animation starts getting better, and the storytelling dives deep. It's all upward from there!

I’d argue the quality of One Piece isn’t about the animation or art—it’s the story that really shines. Sure, the animation improves over time, but even early episodes have that magic. Stick with it, and you’ll see.

One Piece starts off with a bang, but if you're looking for when it really hits its stride quality-wise, I'd say around the Arlong Park arc (episodes 31-44). The storytelling depth, character development, and animation noticeably improve. However, the real game-changer is the Water 7/Enies Lobby arc (episodes 229-312). This is where One Piece truly becomes a masterpiece, combining incredible emotion, epic battles, and stunning visuals.
