Luffy is notified that the Sunny survived and all the mirrors have been destroyed, per his orders. Nami notifies him that they are on their way to Cacao Island to meet up with Sanji, Pudding, and Chiffon, who are busy working on the replacement cake. Luffy is told to find a mirror that leads to Cacao Island after defeating Katakuri. Shortly afterwards, Katakuri traps Luffy with mochi and makes him fall, swallowing the shard. Katakuri then repeatedly kicks Luffy around and the latter narrowly escapes from getting smashed into the ground. After spitting out the pieces of glass, Luffy tells them to hurry. He struggles to stand up as Katakuri taunts him. Bringing his trident out from within his mochi, Katakuri predicts what Luffy will say and asks if he is certain he wants those to be his last words, with Luffy declaring regardless that he will not die here.
Boy, the Reverie arc sure is getting slammed by the filler gods. I was wary of something like this happening since we're bringing together a plethora of characters who haven't been seen in ages and some catch-up is appropriate, but there's definitely an upper limit to what they can get away with. There are scraps of canon material between these two episodes, so they can't be skipped entirely, but there's hardly a meal's worth to talk about. To be completely fair to the anime, this is far from the worst this series has ever gotten. Remember when they paused the action in the middle of Enies Lobby to do five straight weeks of clip shows?
The conceit is that we're spending time with the upper echelons of the Navy as they recount the entirety of the Impel Down/Marineford saga. The stars of this episode are Fleet Admiral Sakazuki (formerly "Akainu"), former Fleet Admiral Sengoku, and Admiral Kizaru. Since Kizaru was voiced by the late Unshō Ishizuka, this is our first time hearing him being performed by Ryotaro Okiayu, who serves as a remarkably close voice match, if considerably softer-spoken. The specific story arc being recapped is a weird choice, since it informs very little of what's actually going to happen at the Reverie outside of being Navy-centric. I'm getting itchy because I know there are going to be more openings for clip shows in the future, and if they're already reaching this far off the bat, then I worry about the kind of reputation this arc is going to suffer.
Even though the majority of the filler episodes do not contribute to the plotline, there are some important filler arcs that give charm to the anime. In this article, we sorted out the best list possible out of the astounding 965 episodes to weed out the important and unimportant Fillers or Anime-only episodes to maximize your One Piece experience!
One Piece is an ongoing anime series that started in 1999. So far 965 episodes of One Piece have been aired. With a total of 99 reported filler episodes, One Piece has a very low filler percentage of 10%.
While One Piece is among the most popular and beloved anime worldwide, it inevitably has its fair share of bad episodes, given that it has released 1000+ episodes in 23 years. Unsurprisingly, most of these are filler episodes, which fans sometimes think are a waste of time. Whether they don't move the plot forward, feature nonsensical conflicts, or simply aren't entertaining, some episodes are better left only watched once.
This episode occurs on Jipangu, an alternative reality modeled on feudal Japan, where the Straw Hat Pirates and the Buggy Pirates live. The Buggy Pirates' captain, Buggy, tries to sell Rika as a slave to act as payment for Pandaman's debts, believing Pandaman to be Rika's father.
It is a filler episode and is a part of the 2-episode Boss Luffy Historical Arc. Fans are disappointed at how this episode is suddenly put in the middle of a heated battle during Ennies Lobby Arc, right after Chopper started rampaging in his battle against Kumadori, a member of a group of betrayers, CP9.
As its title states, this episode is a crossover between One Piece and Toriko. In this episode, Luffy and Toriko meet up on Hungry-la Island. where there exist animals exclusive for this episode only. They also eat the Multi-fruit (a fruit from Toriko's world), after they rescue Komatsu and Nami from the Cocoalas who kidnapped them.
While it is cool to see characters from other anime in One Piece, the episode doesn't really have any significance to the overall storyline. A likely reason as to why the episode was rated poorly was because it is released right after the Marineford War, where fans saw the death of two fan-favorite characters, Ace and Whitebeard (and Luffy nearly died).
Several occurrences occur in several locations on the floating Onigashima Island in this episode. On their way to the Emperor, Luffy, Sanji, and Jinbe fight their way past Kaido's minions. Queen infects both allies and foes with a virus that turns them into ice monsters. The scabbards hit Kaido with a weaker version of Oden's hallmark technique together, which didn't do much.
While the episode seemed to have improved its infamous pacing as compared to the previous episodes, it still felt a lot slower even when compared to the manga. Some scenes deemed unnecessary and filler by fans are still present in the episode, particularly when the scabbards attack Kaido together, and flashbacks of their time with Oden is shown repetitively..
Luffy confronts Cidre in this episode, who is equipped with his most powerful carbonated gear. After that, Luffy is invited to the Pirates Festival, and the former Cidre Guild members offer the Straw Hats countless barrels of cola for free. The Straw Hats travel to Delta Island for the Pirates Festival, where they learn that a race for Gol D. Roger's treasure would be held.
Alongside Episode 895, this is another filler episode that serves as somewhat of a prequel to One: Piece Stampede. It is put right after the events in which Luffy Meets Tama, a girl Ace once met on his travel to Wano. Fans didn't really like having this episode released out of nowhere after an emotional scene in Episode 894 where Luffy reveals Ace's death to Tama.
The narrative of the episode takes place at New Marineford, where Sakazuki, the new Fleet Admiral of the Marines, discovers that Admiral Fujitora has gone to Mary Geoise. Admiral Ryokugyu, the mysterious admiral, is then ordered to send him away. Meanwhile, ex-Fleet Admiral Sengoku describes the events of two years ago at Impel Down and Marineford.
While the episode cannot really be considered a filler episode, it also doesn't add much new information to the series. While the beginning contains fresh content, the rest of the episodes are just pure flashbacks of events from previous arcs- albeit animated better. This left fans bored, especially those waiting for Wano Arc to come.
This is the first episode in which One Piece, Toriko, and Dragon Ball have all collaborated at the same time. Multiple characters from the three animes compete in the Tastiest Under The Heavens tournament held by the International Gourmet Organization in order to win the legendary Carat Sizzled Cattle. They must survive multiple obstacles filled with traps and monsters in a Winner-Take-All survival race to obtain the meat.
Aside from the protagonists, supporting characters such as Toriko's Sunny and Komatsu and Dragon Ball's Vegeta and Piccolo have appeared in the crossover episode. While it is fun to watch a crossover episode between several anime, it is completely skippable, and some fans think that it is a waste of time, which caused its low ratings.
Like several Wano Arc episodes, fans have complained about how slow this episode is. Reasons include several scenes taking way longer than necessary (such as Queen's dancing), redundant flashbacks about Oden being shown again, and several minutes of scenes that didn't even exist in the manga taking place in this episode.
In this episode, Yamato still rushes after Shinobu and Momonosuke to convince them about being allies. On the other hand, Shinobu is concerned that as Kaido's daughter, she would endanger Momonosuke. Meanwhile, Queen is continuing to infect foes and allies with his virus.
Again, fans generally didn't like how little manga content is adapted in this episode (although it is more here than in some other episodes). Also, despite the title having Chopper's name on it, Chopper actually only appears for a minute in this episode, and it wasn't even during its climax. These factors contributed to its low rating.
The Grand Mochimaki Race, a celebration about catching a Mochimaki with a great treasure within, takes place in this episode, but Buggy has a plan to steal the treasure before the festival begins. Zoro eventually obtains the treasured Mochimaki, but he discards it.
It's a filler episode, just like Episode 291, and it's part of the two-episode Boss Luffy Historical Arc. Fans are dissatisfied with how this episode is thrown into the heart of a hot battle during the Ennies Lobby Arc, just after Chopper went on a rampage against CP9 member Kumadori. Thankfully, its next episode is a canon episode of Ennies Lobby Arc.
In this episode, Chopper Man and Namifia are both cash-strapped. Meanwhile, Dr. Usodabada devises a scheme to bring down Chopper Man while gaining renown and forming a new crew to replace his uncooperative partners, Sanjilops and Zorogilla. His objective is to seize control of the television station and broadcast his demands live.
The episode happens right before one of One Piece's weirdest arcs, the Thriller Barc Arc, where the crew meets Brook for the first time. Aside from being a part of an 11-episode filler episode sequence, the reason for the low ratings is that fans think that the episode is somewhat cringy and childish and that it is an utter waste of time.
The machines were a product of the old age, before humanity took to the seas and the skies in search of real estate. Now people made their habitats deep in the Drift or high in the Up and Out, on Mars and beyond. The old makers broke down or were salvaged for parts, and almost none remained intact but for the museum piece outside Irkutsk. 781b155fdc
