One Piece is one of the most popular anime series ever, with 986 episodes aired thus far and only 95 filler episodes. I am sure you are not surprised to learn that One Piece has a very low filler percentage, just 11% – which means more time for what is really important: piracy! …err… That does not sound right… Support the straw hats, the mangaka Eiichiro Oda, the One Piece anime and the anime industry as a whole by not pirating!
Gol D. Roger was a fearsome pirate king, and he had everything-until his capture, that is! He proclaimed on the brink of , “I left One Piece somewhere on the Grand Line,” provoking The Great Pirate Age.
One Piece is a world full of all sorts of weird and wonderful things. There are some strange fruits, but the strangest one out there by far has to be Devil Fruits! Paramecia, Zoan and Logia are three types of Devil Fruit. Paramecia is a fruit that can materialize your body into something like water or sand; Zoans give humans animal-like abilities such as the ability to turn into an elephant, for example, but without any of the added benefits you might get from being one in real life; those with Logias manifest some element – fire and ice and so on.
The anime revolves around Monkey D. Luffy aka Straw Hat Luffy, who ate the devil’s fruit and now wishes to become King of Pirates. He goes on an adventure, gathering all kinds of strange people for his crew, The Straw Hat Pirates!
Filler Story Arc List
One of the most interesting aspects about anime is that they often have filler episodes. These are usually independent of the main plot and consist of less serious content with a lot more comedy thrown into it. With hundreds of episodes and running for more than a couple of decades, it is understandable that One Piece has filler arcs.
