    Oda said that this marks the halfway point of the series, so basically another 10 years of one piece left

    I wonder if Oda just wants more episodes than Shin Chan or Lupin the Third. lol
    Unfortunately though though, Yoshito Usui has died about a year ago. X.x

    To Lunami I would like to say: No.

    For starters, Lupin the Third has like, 200 episodes, so he already crushed that. And Shin Chan is absolute garbage...so. Yeah.

    But the real reason is: If you knew anything about One Piece and were following the story, you'd know that they really are only about halfway plotwise in about every aspect possible. They are halfway across the grandline, afterall.

    So yeah. One Piece will probably be well over a thousand chapters when things are all said and done, which would leave only Detective Conan to really rival it in terms of size. And in terms of popularity the series has really no rivals, at least in Japan. Especially with Naruto and Bleach slowly dwindling in their popularity.

    So no, I don't think Oda is just trying to have more episodes than Shin Chan...

    I never liked Shin-chan and don't understand why it was so huge. To this day whenever someone calls it anime, I have to raise an eyebrow.

    Yup, right on Lupin. That was a total brain fart on my end. lol I wonder if I meant Detective Conan, they have over 500 and going last I checked.

    Shin Chan has 670 some odd episodes. While you may not like it, it's still an anime, and still counts regardless. While we only got 52 episodes in the states, I hear they are still making more in Japan, as his people are supposedly going to continue it. And lastly, were you talking about it being "garbage" as far as art, or story? Because they reworded a lot of things in the dub to make it more interesting.


    I haven't watched it since the... oh... I think Alabasta arc? And yeah, One Piece was really popular over in Japan when it started. I heard something about a mall having an entire floor or two dedicated to One Piece.

    Shin chan still counts, regardless of whether or not you like it. It may not be as popular as One Piece, but it's still popular. In May of 09, it was even more popular than One Piece was.

    I wonder how those rankings represent the people?

    How many teenagers liked On Piece more, but how many children liked Shin-chan who do not like One piece or are not allowed to watch it (maybe like 6-7 year olds I'm talking about)

    and how big their ratio is to each other.

    It is maybe comparing a popular kids tv show to a popular adult show, but with more kids watching their show than adults, the ratings are not really valid, since that adult show may be the most popular adult show, but because there are more kids, it gets a lower score

    Shin Chan? Who knows. It would depend entirely on what time it aired at, which I can't seem to find. But I can't see where it'd be seen as more of a kid show than just something to watch and laugh at? (lmao just learned that Brittany Spears liked Shin Chan)

    Anyway, my point was toward how does it being garbage at all reflect the popularity of a series, the American version being changed intentionally, or it simply "not counting."

    If it's the art, then maybe they just can't draw? Just lazy? Maybe they just wanted to draw things quickly like that so it could be turned out faster? It doesn't have to look amazing to be great.

    If it's the story, then originally it was typical stuff, but again, changed in the English version.

    http://espanol.video.yahoo.com/watch/1260259/4421075 <<< Episode 52 subtitled, part 1. Can't find the rest. X.x

    If you compare the above to the episode 52 we received, you see a large difference.

    A lot of people liked that it was something from Japan that was different. A friend of mine HATES anime. She made the only exception for Shin Chan, knowing full well where it was from. It was funny in a perverted way, and that appealed to a lot of people. Anime, it still is, even if it doesn't fit the graphical standards other anime have set.

    A lot of people didn't like Reign: The Conqueror simply for it's artwork.

    I must agree that the art isn't appealing. But Shin-chan doesnt seem to fit into the anime category in it's story style and presentation, either.

    It seems more like a comic book cartoon thing.

    Also, those ratings are for Anime, but when I said One Piece was number one I was more referring to Manga. And Anime News's ratings is very weird when it comes to stuff like that. I don't really trust it, just because it has said that these stories that no one I know has ever heard of are just wildly popular and I'm like, "um?" As Amaterasu said, I think it takes in a huge ratio of kids shows, but when we think of Anime we think of those aimed more towards teens, and Shounen Jump etc. So it makes it hard to figure out.

    If Shin Chan is considered Anime, yet looks nothing like Anime, then why can't shows that we make in America to look like Anime and act as Anime, be considered Anime? Just a question for thought.

    Fuuuuurther, when I called Shin Chan garbage, which I was right in doing, I was just doing that. Calling it garbage. It has nothing to do with your original question, which was is Oda trying to have more episodes than that. Which Oda isn't.

    Also note: I just looked around and Anime News does it's best series by votes from people on the website...Or so it seems. A more accurate way to see what the best series is to see by sales total.

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-12-04/2009-top-selling-manga-in-japan-by-series

    One Piece is so popular in fact, that it is more popular than Bleach and Naruto.

    Combined. At least in terms of sales.

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-05-12/oricon/one-piece-no.57-is-best-selling-book-since-2008

    And One Piece Volume 57 is the largest selling book ever published in Japan, beating out Harry Potter.

    Which is why I said One Piece was the most popular. ^^

    One last Edit: Wasn't One Piece doing filler back in May, when Lunami took that rating? I am just asking, because I remember it had a filler arc a few months ago?

    Anime is any animation that comes out of Japan. A lot of anime come out that don't fit the usual way of art. Reign for example fleshed out the lips. Besides, remember it's called "Crayon Shin Chan," I don't think it was meant to fit the usual style to begin with, perhaps to imply it would look like something a kid would draw with, as most people use crayons growing up until they get colored pencils.

    Fuuuuurther, when I called Shin Chan garbage, which I was right in doing, I was just doing that. Calling it garbage. It has nothing to do with your original question, which was is Oda trying to have more episodes than that. Which Oda isn't.

    One Piece is so popular in fact, that it is more popular than Bleach and Naruto.
    This I'm aware of. I'm not claiming that One Piece isn't popular, I'm merely stating that there are a lot of popular shows in Japan. In the end, it's all opinion, as no one will watch things they don't wish too, and the fact that Shin Chan is watched at all still shows that people like it.
    Combined. At least in terms of sales.

    In any case...
    1. Bad Publicity.
    2. Quite a few people here don't have jobs, let alone the money.

    When I mentioned shin chan not being anime-ish, I meant in almost every aspect possible - not just the art style. The storyline (is there even really a storyline??) isn't right, either. I suppose you can make anime out of anything, but man....Awful.

    Again, the storyline was changed DRASTICALLY when they made it to the American version. You'd have to watch it in Japanese in order to know otherwise.

    On what basis is it garbage? And it wasn't a question so more as a rhetorical thought.

    Also note: I just looked around and Anime News does it's best series by votes from people on the website...Or so it seems. A more accurate way to see what the best series is to see by sales total.

    One Piece is so popular in fact, that it is more popular than Bleach and Naruto.
    This I'm aware of. I'm not claiming that One Piece isn't popular, I'm merely stating that there are a lot of popular shows in Japan. In the end, it's all opinion, as no one will watch things they don't wish too, and the fact that Shin Chan is watched at all still shows that people like it.
    Combined. At least in terms of sales.

    And One Piece Volume 57 is the largest selling book ever published in Japan, beating out Harry Potter.

    Which is why I said One Piece was the most popular. ^^

    One last Edit: Wasn't One Piece doing filler back in May, when Lunami took that rating? I am just asking, because I remember it had a filler arc a few months ago?
    No idea, likely though.
    Thoughts in red.

    And thanks Ama.
