Ok for real though…has One piece always been trash? Has it only declined somewhere around the timeskip or has it been a great story throughout all his time?

Honestly, whenever a series drags out for that long it's going to be trash.

The more it goes on,the more you notice the lows of it,and the more opportunities for Oda to fuck up,so on average,it became worse.
DO NOT watch the anime tho,I don't care that the music and the voice acting is good,the pacing is so bad it makes you wonder why you're even bothering.

Trash in what sense?
One Piece is about wild moments, weird powers and creatures and corny shit about friendship and determination. And I think it's pretty funny.
It's never been good at pacing, or subtlety, or nuance, or maturity, or whatever else you expect from stuff that doesn't get labeled "trash". And it's very formulaic. Like another anon said, this stuff gets more noticeable and frequent the more it goes on, but it's always been there.
Point being, even at its best fighting shonen will only ever be cotton candy and it's never "well written", but as for whether it's actually gotten *worse*, I don't think so at all. I actually find Dressrosa easier to binge read than something like Skypiea because at least it feels like things are always moving somehow.
But if you wanna judge it entirely within its genre, there's probably a reason (beyond mere nostalgia) I still read One Piece but can't handle stuff like MHA or AoT or even Naruto. And honestly, I think it's that Oda just embraces how trashy it is. It's always very cartoonish and even the more "serious" moments tend to have some humor or ridiculousness to them.
And I make this point because I think it's easy to scoff at shonenfags who cream their pants over every minutely "hype" moment achieved by violating good taste and common sense, but One Piece seems different because it is very much aware of what it is without descending into outright cynical parody. This is one of the things the first Dragon Ball actually got right, so it's a big plus.
So it's trash, yes, in the best way, which still might not be enough for some people. That's fine.
And yes, I just wrote a whole reply to a post that's forty days old and I'm not even gonna bump the thread. Fuck you.

I partially agree with
so I'll summarize that Pre and Post Timeskip are sort of like 2 very different series, similar to how Naruto and Shippuden took differing directions. However it is largely true that Post TS is worse in many regards than Pre TS because it flanderizes the small issues that the Pre-TS story had and makes it boring. The anime has become worse than the manga in most regards, with DBZ tier pauses and discount supersaiyan fights, so compared to the more grounded yet silly adventure story that initially began, it's lost it's tempo.

Nami'd kill for a money making scheme like that - it's in her style, using temporary living ona-holes essentially to make money (and get pleasure) from places they stop at, while remaining squeaky clean herself.
Also on a less sexual note, the Strawhats could make a lot of money (and infamy) by selling clones of Nico Robin, to marines for bounties (in disguise) and then having them go *poof* leaving the marines having nothing.
I also got an idea about Robin making a clone that goes rogue and becomes a nymphomaniac, with the original one feeling everything that happens with the clone and having to hunt it down, before it messes everything up.

Yamato Not Trans Anonymous 2021-10-14 (Thu) 03:26:47 No. 10817 >>2059 >>2058 >>2053 >Yamato's Intro Box says she is the DAUGHTER of Kaido >Openly admits she's merely LARPing as Oden <tvitter libs and the LGBT community: Hmmm, this means he's trans! Finally we have representation (NO, FUCK YOU, KIKU AND THE NEWKAMA DON'T COUNT SHUT UUUP!)
I'm really not liking this idea that Kaido was such a horrible motherfucker that he beat his daughter and made her and his underlings refer to herself as his 'son', since that means Yamato later latching onto the Oden LARPing can be directly blamed on Kaido himself for mindbreaking his daughter into referring to herself as a boy, since he wanted a son. Then again, judging by the fact that Kaido is so petty that he locked an 8 year old Yamato in a cave with 3 samurai for Oden LARPing, when he could have easily talked her down suggests that Kaido really would do something that fucked up for his own pride.
I find it both hilarious and sad that some people try to make this into a "Yamato is trans" argument and it's kinda dumb as fuck. This is despite her reasons for calling herself a man (A: Kaido refusing to acknowledge a female and so coping by calling her a son and B: her childish idea to become Oden) directly hurts the transhumanists own cause since it just seems mentally ill and abusive/trauma-based. I get wanting representation, but this is actually silly, and frankly there is much better representation in the series (the Okama like Bon Clay, Kiku and Emporio Ivankov).
The reactions to Yamato's male declaration (and Oden LARP) is that Momo is confused as fuck and Luffy is too, but they just roll with it, since it's a minor matter and that's probably the best part of this entire debacle.
Yamato wanting to be Oden is not the same as Kiku wanting to be a woman - it's about presentation, not actual reality; she directly says her reasoning is
>if Oden is a man, then I'll be a man too
This suggests her wanting to be a man is completely dependent on Oden and not how she sees herself. Yamato calling her self 'son of Kaido' is something Kaido forced on her even before she met Oden. That she put herself as 'son of Kaido' in context of the samurai hating her due to her dad suggests that even before Yamato decided to 'become a man, like Oden', she was already being raised not to act like a girl, by her dad. That would definitely explain why Kaido calls her his son, when he hates her Oden-LARPing guts. The only question is why Kaido does this; it's not humoring her, since he's instructed his underlings to do the same. I have no doubt Kaido's reasons has nothing to do with him respecting her 'wanting to be a man like Oden' and everything to do with his complete and utter absolute disdain for the fact that he had a daughter instead of a son.
Also it seems that Oda just got inspired by another media (as usual) in this case Rose of Versailles
>Yamato seems to be inspired by Oscar François de Jarjayes, from the shōjo manga The Rose of Versailles, who is a woman raised by her father as if she were a boy in order to succeed him as the commander of the Royal Guard at the Palace of Versailles. >Additionally, in the Chapter 945 author's comment, Oda talks about reading The Rose of Versailles for the first time and being surprised to find out Oscar was a woman.

Also as an aside, translators can and are biased, example being pic 1, translating an interview of the VA for Yamato and using male pronouns, despite actual translation using female pronouns. Pic 2 is the original.
> You were chosen to play the role of Yamato, who is popular all over the world, but what is your impression of Yamato? < "I think Yamato's charm lies in the fact that she single-mindedly believes in her feelings so much that she calls herself Kozuki Oden or says "I will become". For Yamato, gender and blood relations are secondary, and the most important thing is what Oden, whom she admires, was like. That's why she refers to herself as Kaido's "son" and why she aims to open up the country even if it means attacking her immediate family member, Kaido. I feel that the impulse of her childhood, when she witnessed Oden's way of life and read the "Oden Adventure", are what keep Yamato alive."
Here's the Japanese text in case anyone wants to check it.
> 世界中から人気を集めるヤマトの役に抜擢されましたが、ヤマトにはどのような印象がありますか？ < 自ら光月おでんを名乗り「なる」と言いきるくらい、自分の気持ちを信じている直向きさが魅力たど思います。ヤマトにとって性別や血縁は二の次で、一番大切なのは憧れのおでんがどうであったか。だからこそカイドウの”息子”と表現したり肉親のカイドウを討ってまで開国を目指したりする。おでんの生き様を目の当たりにし、「おでん漫遊記」をよんだ幼少期の衝動が、ヤマトを生かしているのではないかなと感じています。
Also an alternate translation attempt
> You were chosen to play the role of Yamato who is an extremely popular character all over the world, so what is your impression of Yamato? < Hayami: I believe her charm comes from her so earnestly believing her own feelings which results in her proclaiming herself to "be" Kozuki Oden. You see, for Yamato her gender and her blood relations are secondary. What's most important is her admiration for Oden and the man he was. That is the reason why she calls herself Kaido's "son" and why she want to open Wano to the world by defeating her own father Kaido. I believe by reading "Oden's Voyage Log" and becoming witness to his way of life gave Yamato this urge in her early childhood. I feel that this must be what kept her alive.

Maybe, I'm not sure, these translations aren't mine, though I tried to check them for accuracy before posting. That said I think that it may be a case of something like "san" that is technically neutral but reads as female or male depending on the use (see the part about Yamato and compare to the part about Oden's way of life.
But again it's late and I'm tired so I may be mistaken in the translation.
