How to Watch the One Piece Anime Faster

Spending hundreds of hours watching One Piece can seem like a dream for many fans, but it can be challenging if you’re trying to catch up. Thankfully, there are a handful of ways you can watch One Piece faster without skipping out on the most notable events and details.

1. Read the One Piece Manga (Partially)

Most fans stick to the One Piece anime, but many have found that reading the One Piece manga can cut down on time. You could catch up on the story more quickly if you at least read through the One Piece episodes that are not exactly ‘fillers’ but are not massively important either, such as up until Arlong Park.

2. Skip The Intro/ Outro

The average One Piece episode takes between 22 and 24 minutes, but the intro and outro segments usually amount to between 2 and 3 minutes per episode. It may be a task to skip through the intro and outro sections each time, but doing so will save you around 34 – 51 hours by the end of One Piece episode 1034 without skipping fillers.

3. Watch At 2x Speed

This will definitely depend on preferences since changing the speed may ruin the experience for some viewers. But, if you feel the progression is slow-paced, watching it at 2x speed may be a good way to get through all of the One Piece episodes more quickly (including fillers).
