Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this showâ€s focus on violence overrides the creatorsâ€ supposed billing as a search for a lost treasure. On a recent episode, it was difficult to differentiate between the â€˜goodâ€ and the â€˜badâ€ guys, and the constant sword battles become mind-numbing after a few minutes. There is little educational value in such a show. With such an emphasis, it isn't appropriate for younger elementary school children; some middle-grade elementary school kids may not be able to process the ongoing violent occurrences as well.
If your older children do watch it, ask them what kind of value they place on the ability to yield power, a trait that the characters in this show treasure and battle incessantly over. Are there better ways to be, as one pirate puts it, â€œthe best I can be?â€?
Common Sense Review

The main character, pirate captain Monkey D. Luffy, dreams of finding the legendary One Piece treasure that was buried somewhere on the so-called Grand Line and becoming the Pirate King. He and his crewmates – thieves and liars among them -- battle their way across the high seas in search of this lost piece.
For a show that bills itself as a â€œhigh-seas adventure,â€? ONE PIECE departs considerably from the classic pirate epic. With endless sword battles and comments like â€œfreakâ€? and other sarcastic remarks dominating the show, it's difficult to find any educational, and little entertainment value. While the violence is not bloody and the language is relatively clean, only testosterone-charged tween boys might find this show appealing. Their parents will simply zone out altogether.

Not bloody, but never-ending violence.
Bad role models.
Well anyways I went to this site that has alot of diffrent shows reviewed and it had One Piece in it. Yeah it did'nt get a good grade but as you can see to why it did'nt get a good grade, I think it has to do more with the series itself than the dub. In other words, if you show them the original, they'll proboally still hate it. Critics these days don't know nothing.
