I was really enthusiastic when One Piece came out.
Today I keep up to date with it, but it's definately not my fave.
It has its ups and downs these days (I liked CP9, but not Thriller Bark), and am excited to see the what happens in the new merman arc.
It's just getting to long in the tooth, I'd like to see it wrapped up in the next two years, but that's unlikely to happen.
I don't want to say Oda is milking the premise, since I think he's truly passionate about his work, but as I stated before it's time to move on.
One piece has some really memorable characters, and very cool action sequences.
I'd like to see it end well.
