One Piece Fillers: Are They Worth Watching?

One Piece, an anime about a young, energetic, and stretchy pirate boy, has sailed into the hearts of millions and is here to stay.

The intricate yet straightforward story takes us to a whole new world ruled by raggedy pirates and brings new adventures with every passing episode. From petty pirates lords to government conspiracies, One Piece has it all!

As of November 2020, One Piece has 948 episodes and is still ongoing. A series as massive as this is bound to have filler episodes so that the anime doesn’t stray away from the original manga.

A total of 99 filler episodes in One Piece amount to a small filler percentage of 10%.  

The fillers arcs of the anime aren’t bad, but sometimes, they could get annoying. Use the list below to skip all the non-canon, i.e., filler episodes of One Piece.

Which Fillers Can You Skip?

One Piece fillers are mostly good as they all blend into the story and don’t feel like fillers at all. However, some fillers stand out (in a bad way) and are a waste of time.

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, and has been collected into 95 tankōbon volumes.

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, searching for 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.
