Yay for One Piece!
It's nice to know that in these times of Moe crap stuff like OP is doing great.
(And I bet you my Klondike bar that some overly passionate Moe fan will find the above comment of mine "offensive" and spark some idiotic argument. So, all you moe fans out there, please keep your cool.)

i seriously wonder if there will ever be a bigger manga than one piece at this point.

shonen nowadays are so repetitive, that genre seems to be on a huge downward incline. and shonen is the biggest genre, so..

In all fairness, you did just refer to an entire genre as crap. That is pretty offensive to fans of the genre. If the article was about a successful moe show, would an OP fan view the following as offensive?

It's nice to know that in these times of One Crap stuff like [insert moe show] is doing great.

Especially if the article was purely about a moe show but the commenter decided to throw a jab at OP in completely out of the blue.

Hmm, yes, even in times of "moe crap" "shonen crap" does perfectly fine. Shonen always does fine (the category itself; not everything in it).
Well, I'm glad One Piece is doing well (not like that's news), and while I absolutely enjoy it, I also enjoy my moe crap.

Unless a certain mysterious group of elite people manages to decrease the humanity's numbers by poisoning our water, yep there probably will.

And yet, Nami & Nico seem to grow into disfigured abominations with unrealistic proportions.

It's also nice to know that in times like these, we also have extremely overrated shows like OP keeping us company.

Manga of this popularity tend to come around every 10-15 years, and by the time One Piece ends (in, what, 2025?), another manga will move in and fill the gap. That's essentially what happened with One Piece after Dragon Ball ended.

Of course, if you don't believe in coincidences that's what you'd think. Not like One Piece hasn't been gathering fans for over 10 non-stop years to get this popular.
