Together, they eagerly anticipate the incredible journey ahead to fulfill their dreams and work together to make Luffy’s dream come true. Throughout his journey he had to suffer and get caught in many problems there were also moments where he was bound to feel helpless and powerless which made him work harder and harder to become powerful and save his friend from these problems.

The anime has many things that need to be appreciated like the character development, the choreography of fighting scenes, comedy, emotional moments, and so on.

The fighting scenes of the series are amazing and we fans have witnessed how Luffy has evolved over the years and how hard he has worked till now to get to this point where he is now with amazing fighting skills and the thing I liked the most about the series is that every character has their own story which has given no. of episodes time to show to the public.

One Piece’s win on the grand stage of the Crunchyroll Anime Awards as the Best Continuing Anime has proven that the series possesses the skill of maintaining a lasting appeal to the audience through its extraordinary storytelling.

The best part about the show is that just when you might feel the series is stretching too much, there is always something amazingly interesting waiting for you.

Meanwhile, the comedic punches of Luffy and his crew will keep you engaged, not letting your attention wander elsewhere. The series consistently demonstrates its ability to attract an audience by providing more and more interesting plots each year.

Winning the Best Continuing Anime in both 2023 and 2024, the anime has solidified its status as a legendary series that anime fans worldwide love to watch.
