My thoughts on the new remake of One Piece
I think this was one of their best decisions because we all know that in this day and age, it’s hard to watch anime with low animation, especially when it’s not even in high resolution. resolution 1920×1080.
This will be the best opportunity to attract the new generation audience who only watch anime with flashy animation like Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan, Demon Slayer, etc. You can say animation doesn’t matter much to me when the story is good, but I think it affects me a lot.
Lately, I’ve been wanting to watch Evangelion, but I’m having a hard time adapting to its animation style since I’m now used to watching anime with great animation, so interspersing an old anime it was hard for me to adapt.

How can One Piece Remake succeed?
This isn’t the first time an anime has been remade/remade. We have seen many anime remakes, like Hunter X Hunter, Full Metal Alchemist, Fruit Basket, etc.
In most cases, remakes are becoming more popular than the originals because they have new flashy animations, and Hunter X Hunter, Full Metal Alchemist, and Fruit Basket are the best examples of that.
One Piece’s remake, The One Piece, may not be as popular as the original, but it will certainly bring a new audience to One Piece, and this could be the right decision in the long run if it works. done properly.
