Hello! I'm Foxy and today I feel like asking a question that perhaps we can discuss a bit, if anyone is interested. So, first a bit of background on me, I've watched anime for a long time. I started when I was ten and stumbled upon a back to back marathon of One Piece. This spurred me on to watch others, such as Inuyasha, Cowboy Bebop, Soul Eater, Blue Exorcist, Black Butler, and read quite a few others. Needless to say, the next nine years of me watching and reading anime I got into the groups and circles of friends who also liked these things. But recently I've noticed something...the lack of lover's for One Piece. And it may just be that I haven't found anyone, or that the series has gone on so long that some people have abandoned it or it simply isn't that fun to discuss anymore. I'm not sure. But I haven't seen that many people around me who seem to like it. So my question(s) is this; has the One Piece fandom withered? Is there still a large amount of people that I just haven't run into that do love One Piece? Is there some sort of reluctance to embrace the One Piece loving side of you if there is one? If so, why? I'm also curious if other's believe that One Piece has gone on for too long, I've heard this said about Bleach as well, so I'm wondering if people are just not in for the long haul of watching or attempting to catch up to the amount of episodes and chapter's of One Piece. I know why I managed to keep up with the episodes and that's solely because One Piece was what introduced me to the world of anime. It's my all time favorite (please don't think this means I think it's the best anime out there) and I love the characters because I grew up watching them. So I don't mind binge watching if I get behind, but some people don't like doing that. So I'll ask you guys what you think on this. Has the fandom for One Piece crumbled? Or have I just not found the community of the other One Piece lovers? I'd also like to know how you feel about this series! Though I do ask that you be polite if you wish to tell me something you believe is wrong with the series. So, what do you guys say? Up for a One Piece conversation?
