Realy it is because 4kids Let me explain what 4kids did to One Piece.This is more or less what happened. 4kids got the rights to dub, air on television, and sell DVDs of One Piece. 4 kids ruined the whole series with what a terrible job they did with censoring and dubbing the whole series. With the censoring the took out all bad words, took out cleavage, changed guns to super soakers, deleted all the blood and made Sanji's cigarettes a f!@#$ing lolly pops. They deleted Ace's tattoo for like one seen, Americanized the food like turning rice balls into doughnuts, deleted all Japanese words in the series, and changing names. The most offensive and racist thing they did was turn a black character into a white character. The dubbing that they did was half a$$ed. The dubbings dialogue was awful, it was very bad comic book style lines. Another problem with the dubbing was the voices were bad, Luffy had a piercingly high irritating voice, Zoro sounded constipated, and I don't even want to talk about Usopp. They skipped huge parts of the series. The entire Little Garden Ark was cut as well as many other episodes. After Mutilating the One Piece series they tried to air it on the WB and Cartoon Network. They f!@#$%ing made it unwatchable and they didn’t understand why they weren’t getting good ratings. NO ONE could watch it. After getting terrible ratings the show was canceled after a brief run. That is the ridiculus things that 4kids did to One Piece. If 4kids had never gotten their greedy hands on One Piece then the Anime could have had as much success and as many fans as Naruto or Bleach.
Luckily for us Funimation has it now and is doing a good job with the series. You can even go to funimations web site and watch a bunch of episodes, that are dubbed. One Piece!! 4kids ruined One Piece for the mass audiences.

All around every One Piece arc gets better and it has better characters and a better plot and a the art gets better.

One Piece is a way better show. It is the best because It has more dynamic characters, more original settings, more unpredictable story lines, NO training episodes, No long winded explanations, and more humor and drama. One Piece is a better show.

Naruto and Bleach aren't more popular than One Piece, lmfao. You need to stop reading shit on yahoo.

One piece is the most popular anime.

NOBODY watches English dubbed. Because, well, that's just plain retarded. Naruto and Bleach dubs are ridiculous too, you know.

BELIEVE IT.

Erm.. one piece isn't as popular or as good as naruto.
Bleach has always been cool, but bleach is just the retarded cousin of naruto; cool sometimes but just kinda derpy.
I have never liked one piece.. but that has nothing to do with me saying it isn't as popular.

One Piece is more popular than Naruto, whether you like One Piece or not.
Can't go against legitimate facts just because you don't like OP personally.

Ofc One Piece is one of the most popular anime atm. But its true that Naruto is more popular in some countries though, cuz of the reasons you stated above.
Like here in Brazil that Portuguese audio sucked so much. :sick, wich make the anime at all look so bad.

Luck I was persistent and still looked for the anime with japanese audio, Now its my fav anime. :cheesy

OP is better than Naruto and Bleach because its unpredictable. But OP is way to different very very very unique plot. For me its like a little pokemon type xD, they got a lot of devil fruits and i think they are categorized i think into 3 types. And OP is kinda funny and when you watch it, sometimes i can feel goosebumps which i cant feel in naruto and bleach. But the important thin is how the writer balance each char. Its like the main character is not Luffy but the whole Strawhat Pirate. Not like Naruto and Bleach, Each focuses on the only main char, Naruto (ofc) and Ichigo (im not sure with this cuz i think bleach is kinda boring).

This is only in japan but you still get a good idea

So even though naruto has been going through this war arc it still lost to one piece. I believe the main problem with naruto are the flashbacks a good example are the current chapters where they are having a flashback during a flashback and the fact that half way through one fight it just leaves it to go to another fight for 4-5 chapters then comes back to it.

Generally Naruto and Bleach are more popular than One Piece but in North America One Piece is without a doubt the most popular anime.
Either ways a like all three anime a lot but in my opinion Bleach is the best

I don't know about America and dub cuz' I don't watch anything dubbed, but in Japan, One Piece is the most popular anime/manga, and there's no debating this fact.

Only the latest One Piece film Z made 70 million yen, and that's like x4 times more then what Naruto's Road to Ninja movie made.

Volume's of OP manga are selling like 50k more then the 2nd place, either it's Naruto, or KuroBasu, none can top OP in manga sales, plus they are respecting the author of OP like he's some saint.

I never liked the concept of One Piece. The pirate stuff just seems retarded to me.

Actually, Bleach dubbed is pretty damn good. Whoever dubbed Naruto failed. As for One Piece, I've only heard a few of the characters speak and one of them was fucking Piccolo - talking for Zoro, so it can't be that bad.

Anyway, Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach are pretty much the same anime just reskinned. They're mainstream, predictable, full of colorful characters, and all about the main character becoming the best that ever was. The only difference is their theme. If you like pseudo ninjas - watch Naruto. If you like Soul Reapers and super-powered Germans - watch Bleach. And if you like pirates watch One Piece.

That being said, those three anime are the Big Three. They all get their share of the spot-light, so it doesn't matter which one is the most popular.

BELIEVE IT.

I'm going to politely tell you that you are wrong. I watch English Dubbed Anime because I don't like having to read everytime I'm watching something. I'd rather listen to it in my own language than be forced to watch subbed. I only use subbed when I have no choice but to use it. My brother prefers it too, but here's the problem: Barely any anime does English Dubbed Anymore, despite people liking English Dubbed. People rather like hearing things in their own language than another. It's just common sense.

Anyway, One Piece got ruined by 4kids, but Japan never saw 4kids, so that still makes it #1 in Japan.
