Netflix has announced the cast for the live-action adaptation of the ongoing One Piece anime. The live-action series doesn’t have an official release date. But if you are planning to watch it, it is better to get a head start on the anime. Since the One Piece anime has 1000 episodes. So were you thinking about skipping the One Piece filler episodes? Unfortunately, we have bad news or good news for you depending on your perspective.
But before we delve into that, you must understand what is One Piece? The story follows Straw Hat pirates captain, Monkey D. Luffy, and his crewmates, whom Luffy gathers on the move, to claim ‘One Piece’, the legendary treasure left for grabs by pirate king Gold Roger. One Piece has many characters with unique character designs and interesting backstories.
One Piece filler episodes
We get back to the news you were waiting for. One Piece has only 94 filler episodes which is less than ten percent of the entire anime is filler. Now, this could be bad news if you were hoping to finish the anime quickly. But this could be good news as you get more content and fewer breaks.
Fillers are a necessary tool to halt the progress of the anime, or else it might catch up with the manga series. Every anime has fillers, but One Piece has a relatively less amount of them when compared with other animes like “Naruto”, which has 41 percent filler episodes.

When will One Piece end?
As much as fans love One Piece, a part of them wants to know when will the manga end. The manga, which began back in July 1997, has already achieved a lot of feats including the best-selling manga series of all time.
Eiichiro Oda, the manga creator, keeps toying with the fans as he states, “The story is in its final stage.” In a 2020 interview, Oda said to Arashi, a Japanese boy band, that he wanted to complete the series in the next four or five years.
