one piece passed the 1000 episode mark at the end of 2021 and as the show continues, fans are eagerly awaiting the new episodes of the oda anime series. One of the original “Big Three” anime series, One Piece has an ever-growing fanbase and is among the most popular anime series in the history of the genre. In this article, we are going to talk about One Piece episodes.
Anime episodes can be classified as fillers and canonical episodes. canon episodes are taken from the manga, while filler episodes are anime-only original content not present in the manga. filler episodes have a different function, depending on how and when they are aired, but that is not going to be the subject of this article. instead, in this article, we will give you a list of the One Piece filler episodes that you can easily skip.
episodes 54 to 61: the warship island arc
This Arc takes place right after Luffy received his 30,000,000 Berries bounty at the end of the East Blue Saga, and before the Straw Hats arrived on the Grand Line. The Straw Hats found a young girl named Apis floating in the ocean. It turns out that she escaped from Navy warships. So Luffy’s crew agreed to return to his native; Warship Island, but will be attacked by Nelson Royale’s fleet along the way.
After successfully escaping from the marina, the pirates and the girl realize that they have landed in the quiet belt, where they meet the sea monsters. Then, narrowly escaping the latter, they left the quiet belt and then continued on their way to Apis’s home island. after arriving at the warship island, they discover that apis has a devil fruit ability that allows him to talk to animals, it is later revealed that he used it to befriend a thousand-year-old dragon on the verge of death, a species dragon that was believed to be extinct. she wants to help this sennenryu to return to his family, but they found two problems.
first of all, the naval fleet is also after the dragon, as it can be used to make a powerful and valuable elixir, which grants immortality. His commander (Commodore Nelson Royale), has hired Erik (a devil fruit user, the Kama Kama no Mi) to help him obtain the sennenryu, but he intends to disobey and keep the dragon for himself.
Secondly, they don’t know where the dragon nest is, the gathering place of all living ancient dragons. This arc chronicles the efforts of the Straw Hats to bring the Sennenryu home, make the Apis the happiest, and stay out of Erik’s reach.
this is the first filler arc in the entire one piece anime and in all honesty its not worth watching. nothing happens in it and while it’s pretty intriguing in and of itself, it doesn’t really contribute to the overall plot in any way, so we think you can skip it.
episodes 131 to 135: the post-alabasta arc
This arc contains five standalone episoes:
- episode 131 – the first patient! Rumble Ball Anecdote: Reaching an island that appears to be deserted, the Straw Hats set off in search of food, while Chopper is left alone to guard the ship. On the boat, he remembers the first time he did the rumble ball and his first patient, Kureha. He shared this story with Nico Robin, a new member of the crew at the time.
- Episode 132 – The Navigator’s Mutiny! For an Unbreakable Dream!: Nami buys 1,000 sheets of extremely durable paper from a strange vendor. she is trying to transfer some of her old maps to this new document, which will be the beginning of her world map. the crew constantly interrupts her, but she will eventually get it done.
- Episode 133 – Legacy Recipe! Sanji the Curry Expert: The crew accidentally sails between ships and tries to sneak into the mist. An apprentice cook named Tajio falls, then is rescued. After eating his food, Sanji asks if he could visit some sea kitchen. he boards a ship with tajio & luffy until dawn when the fog clears. Sanji hides between several critical food boards and escapes just in time with Luffy. With Sanji’s help, Tajio managed to make his superior curry stew for him.
- Episode 134 – I’ll Make It Bloom! manly usopp’s eight-shaku ball: the team arrived on an island, where they are preparing a big party, with a magnificent fireworks display. Usopp befriends Kodama, who is the granddaughter of the director of pyrotechnics. she wants to set off a giant firework, which killed her parents the year before when they tried to put it out. In the end, her grandfather achieves it all with the help of Usopp, further determining the sniper to become a great warrior of the seas.
- Episode 135 – Infamous Pirate Hunter! The Wandering Swordsman, Zoro!: While resting, Zoro had a flashback to when he met Johnny and Yosaku and then confronted (to come to his aid) Dick.
This is probably the least good among all the filler bows. all five episodes are self-contained with individual storylines and not only don’t contribute to the overall plot in any way, but the episodes aren’t really connected to each other either.
episodes 136 to 138: the goat island arc
The Straw Hat Pirates arrived on Goat Island, and spot a young goat nearby. As Sanji, Usopp and Luffy tried to capture her to eat her, the latter ran off, luring them into a trap where the crew got surrounded by other goats. Zoro and Sanji prepare to fight back, but are stopped by Chopper. From the conversation with the goats, Chopper discovered that the trap was set by an old man, who was hiding nearby.
After finding the old man, the latter got scared and wanted to run away, but was quickly stopped by the bush. Zoro uses his katana to cut the branches and free the old man, but he was unconscious. The crew thought the man passed out due to Zoro’s katana. when chopper checked on zenny, he was shocked to find that the man’s heart had stopped.
they asked the goats to lead them to the abode of the latter. zenny woke up a little later and to make up for this act of “violence” she started ordering the crew to do chores around the house. Zoro set out on a journey to the mountain to look for food. he finds a pirate ship on the mountain and informs the rest of the crew. while the crew wondered why it was a pirate ship, they decided to leave the island; no longer wanting to want to do the old man’s chores.
However, Chopper insisted on staying, as he discovered that the old man had passed out not because he had a weak heart, but because he only had 3 days to live. the next day, the crew decided to treat zenny better, doing everything he asked and eating for him. they also helped build the pirate ship, which turned out to be theirs. he said he builds his own coffin. Meanwhile, Minchey discovered that many years ago Zenny, the money-lending pirate, was lost in these waters after robbing pirates and should be “ready to die” soon.
Therefore, he decided to set a trap so he could get hold of the treasures, but also zenny and luffy’s crew. Back on the island, Zoro realized that three days had passed and the old man still looked healthy. chopper then commented that it might be a bug. once again the crew decided to leave the island. Nami told them they couldn’t, because she lost her joy to the old man in a game of chess and is still trying to get it back.
zenny says that they would have to work for him for 10 years on the island before they could get his ship back. Usopp suggested to leave quickly, but Luffy refused, as he said that he didn’t want to break a promise. At that time, Robin won against the old pirate at chess to get the ship back from him. the old man said that he had never seen such pirates. During the night, they began to have a celebration.
nami tries to get zenny to tell her where he hid his famous treasure, but the old man reveals that he was zenny the loan shark. he tells the crew that his dream was to be the pirate king, but now he is too old to go on the adventure. Luffy commented that it will never be too late to start his adventures. The next morning, Chopper woke up and alerted the crew that the Marines had arrived on the island.
zoro prepares to fight, but minchey convinces them that they can’t do anything when they only have one ship. Usopp headed up the mountain to inform Robin of his departure. With the help of Luffy, Zenny and his goats were able to attack the Marines. the Straw Hat Pirates then arrived as reinforcements. Meanwhile, due to his heart, Zenny weakened, giving Minchey an attempt to capture him.
the commander was about to hit the old man, when suddenly robin, who was in zenny’s boat, threw his abacus at minchey. then minchey straw hats are tied. Nami then asked Zenny where her treasure was hidden, then she replied that when she landed on the island with her fortune turned into cash, the goats had eaten everything she had, so she mentioned that the goats were her treasures.
Luffy then threw Minchey onto Captain Moore’s ship, who stripped Minchey of his title after discovering his betrayal. the two pirate crews say their goodbyes and split up for their own adventures. To thank the pirates for capturing Minchey, Moore allowed them to choose their battle location. Luffy pointed out the foggy area, which once again caused the loss of the captain’s fleet.
Now this is a very interesting filler arc. if you like goats. if goats aren’t your thing, then you won’t find much material on this bow. It’s not bad, but it’s just not that intriguing and doesn’t connect to anything else, so you can safely skip it without feeling guilty.
episodes 220 to 224: the ocean dream arc
One night, while moored near an island, the entire crew began to fall asleep. Only Nico Robin stayed awake to finish reading a book, while a mysterious young man blew underwater into a seahorse. The next morning, Robin greeted Nami, who did not recognize her. In the boys’ room, Tony Tony Chopper was the first to wake up, and jumped when he saw that he was surrounded by humans.
When the other people finally woke up, they tried to figure out what was going on, because they had no idea how they got there or why so many people were around them. They only remembered the events that happened just before monkey d. Luffy entered their lives. (in luffy’s case, before being on alvida’s ship).
later, usopp tells them that they are all part of his crew and lost their memory in a fight against a giant whale. however, sanji quickly sensed the lie. he decided to prepare breakfast for everyone and the pirates went to the bow of the ship. Sanji, seeing Nico Robin and Nami, fell in love. They soon noticed Chopper, who was hiding behind a barrel, having no idea what he was doing there.
robin says that they were on a pirate ship, which scared everyone, especially nami, who still hated pirates (having lost her memory). at that moment roronoa zoro appeared, and usopp began to get scared seeing that he was the great pirate hunter. Nami had returned to her room and found a picture of her, Belmer, and Nojiko.
so, zoro decided that he had no reason to stay in their company any longer and went to the island. Nami arrived in a town to find a diary, which serves as the residents’ only source of information, as they too have lost their memories. Nami tried to find a boat that he could use to get back to Cocoyashi, but the boy from the night before showed up and explained that all the boats that docked on the island had been shipwrecked.
In the ship’s mess hall, Robin explained that they were in the same crew, but as the last member, he didn’t know the circumstances under which they all joined this crew. he then recounted what had happened the day before and said that he had heard a strange noise. With a whistle from the kettle, everyone with memory loss realized they were all having the same dream of a boy playing an instrument, which Robin hadn’t because she stayed up.
they concluded that the boy was the cause of his memory loss. That night, the boy called again and was surprised to find everyone awake. Luffy attacked him, damaging his seahorse horn and all the memories of him returned to him, but the boy escaped. Luffy reminds everyone of his role in the crew, then he too wants to bring Zoro and Nami back, but Robin convinces him to wait until morning.
the next day, they arrived at the island and immediately confronted nami and luffy forced her to help them find zoro. On their way, Robin reads an ancient scripture and, realizing the true cause behind the memory loss, he tells everyone to go to the “Palace of the Sea God”. Meanwhile, the boy hypnotized Zoro, to put him on his side.
Then, the seahorse reveals its ultimate technique. first it makes everyone see, in the form of an illusion, their loved ones, and it makes them see all their enemies, which makes them vulnerable. as he does so, he grows larger and larger and begins to float in the air, stating that he is now a sennenryu (Millennium Dragon), just like he always wanted.
Despite having lost all his memories, Luffy decides to ride the seahorse and inadvertently uses his devil fruit powers to wrap his arms around it. This caused Luffy’s memories to be expelled by the seahorse, so he decided to defeat the seahorse until he restored everyone’s memory, only to send him off the island.
The crew then arrive at the village, where they thought they were rewarded for returning all the memories to the villagers, and are instead attacked. Noko, the boy who was hypnotized by the seahorse, misunderstood the situation and thinks that the Straw Hat Pirates were the ones who took all the memories and warned the whole town. after that, the crew is forced to run towards the ship and speed away.
this arc is really good in terms of plot, as the general idea was quite intriguing and it was actually in conjunction with one of the video games, which was great. why skip it then? because it has no influence on the plot: once it’s done, the characters return to their normal selves and everything continues as if the plot never happened. journal.
