Last weekend was talking to somebody during Play expo Pack up about anime and that (Its was between me or him about who would get that giant Dragonball Xenoverese marque)

He asked
"Is One piece worth watching?"
Considering that its been going for BLOODY YEARS!! (700+ episodes)
And it has next to NO FILLER
and that filler is actually entertaining and kinda fits in with the story

I still had to say "no" as its a long investment
But it is ok turn off brain stuff

Same here I watched it as Black Ridge recommended it to me and everything he's given me in the past has been brilliant.. The man in the mask was cool and had a awesome looking mask but they hardly used him.. Mostly focused on those two annoying girls and all the supernatural stuff from the first episode went out of the window..
Well that has inspired me to carry on watching it... :lol:

I think I just find the main guy too whiny and whilst I don't mind slow burners with only twelve episodes I thought there might be a little more faster pacing. I might just keep it on the back burner for when I'm in the mood for it or have a spare twenty mins for an episode.
If it's only 12 episode I will give it another try.. Liked the masked man on Ep1 but 2 and 3 focused on those 2 girls who i just didn't give a damn about and no supernatural stuff.. When you watch more let me know if it improves, I think I can't really enjoy anything at the moment..

Started watching Assassination Classroom last night and only 3 episodes in so far but it's wickedly funny and looking forward to the rest of the show. Great, madcap fun :)

Sat down at lunchtime and decided to give it two episodes and if not improved sack it off. I'm now on episode eight. Episode five quickly resolves some stuff and opens up/pushes along the story. Also has a hell of a fight in it.

I would say if it hasn't grabbed you by episode five then don't bother with the rest.

Finished Tokyo Ghoul.

Massively improves but has pacing issues and the ending was damn annoying but can see why it ended there with it having a second season.

Rewatched some series I have. Girls und Panzer is still a fun watch. Also first ep of Keijo, because it seems like the sort of thing somebody made on a dare. If they play it straight as a serious sports drama, it could be hilarious.
