How To Watch One Piece? Easy Watch Order Guide

My treasure? If you want it, I’ll let you have it. Go look for it. I left it all in one place.

Gol D. Roger

One Piece is the story of the Straw Hat pirates that comes from the pre-established dynamic of different characters. It brings exciting and fresh adventures along with peculiar twists with each new story arc.

The story is ever-changing while maintaining a streamlined flow with which we gradually inch towards the end of the series. For now, there is no sign of the series coming to an absolute halt.

The One-Piece anime started airing in 1999, making the show over 20 years old. The series has been producing content consistently and, as a result, has 20 seasons with 990+ episodes and is still ongoing.

The series is so long that it would take over 18 days of continuous binge-watching to finish it. Let me take you all on this long pirate journey with a simple watch order.

3. Conclusion

One Piece has a very straightforward timeline; however, some arcs are not released chronologically.

Hence, I recommend first-time viewers of the anime to follow the release order as you won’t have to jump in between episodes. If it’s not your first time watching One Piece, feel free to revisit the story by its chronology.

The specials, OVAs, and shorts can be watched at any time because they don’t follow the storyline of the main anime and hence spoil nothing.

4. How much time will it Take to Watch One Piece?

It will take you 429 hours and 56 minutes to watch all the installments in One Piece.

7. About One Piece

One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997.

The man who had acquired everything in this world, the Pirate King, is Gol D. Roger. The final words he said at the execution tower were “My treasures? If you want it, I’ll let you have it. Look for it; I left all of it at that place.” These words sent many to the seas, chasing their dreams, headed toward the Grand Line, in search of One Piece. Thus began a new age!

Seeking to be the greatest pirate in the world, young Monkey D. Luffy also heads toward the Grand Line in search of One Piece. His diverse crew is joining him along the way, consisting of a swordsman, marksman, navigator, cook, doctor, archaeologist, and cyborg-shipwright, this will be one memorable adventure.

Really glad that you found this article helpful! It’ll take you almost 2 weeks (14 days) if you watch One Piece if you watch it non-stop. Realistically, it will take you a couple of months to catch up!

how come the OVA’s and specials aren’t included in the chronological order list?
also do u know if/where u can buy the movies, specials, and OVA’s?

Hey there. Great Article. I started re watching the series on February and I am already on Dressrosa. I noticed that two things are missing from the list (maybe I am wrong). First one is Boss Luffy special (only the 5 episodes are mentioned) and 2nd one is strong world episode 0.

Thanks for this post of One Piece Chronological orders of Movies, OVA’s, Short Film and Specials based on episodes.

This makes a lot of sense for the beginners though I haven’t watch it in first episodes and started at Amazon Lily Arc. 🙂

Thank you for this list! It’s very useful! Just one thing tho- I think you guys forgot to add in “One Piece Episode 0” which I think comes before the movie “Strong world”

Hi, really loved your work. If you could, please help me in the final saga ending part, how can Cidre Guild Arc come after Wano Country Arc – Act 3 even though Wano Country Arc – Act 3 came after Cidre Guild Arc

Amazing, but shouldn’t the little east blue arc come before strong world episode 0 and the strong world movie not after them?
