    Alabasta
    The final fight had almost no supernatural stuff. Luffy vs Crocodile was awesome. The ending episode playing "Memories" was great. I mainly liked the instrumental part.

    Too many! It's more fun with a bit of careful picking.

    I watched the beginning ones and I'm now at Mr. Croc. I loved Arlong's one especially and to think he's nothing compared to Mr. Croc. Not to mention Black Beard and the other amazing characters out there.

    The Goat island arc wasn't that bad though for a filler arc.
    Quite enjoyable.

    Enies Lobby Arc - The whole scene where the strawhats stand on the battlements and declare war on the World Government, while CP9 observe from above. That scene was just so beautiful. What a work of art. I even had that image as my desktop! Human vocabulary is just too limited to comprehend how beautiful that scene was.
    Marineford Arc - Everyone just comes back prior to Impel Down. And now they are all fighting in a war. What could be more awesome? (More of the older characters to return.) X]
    Thriller Bark Arcc - I love the whole Gothic horror scene. After watching this arc, Gecko Moria became my favourite character.
    Captain Kuro Arc - Captain Axe Hand Morgan sucked. Buggy was mediocre. Captain Kuro was the main man! The whole plot of the arc and major battle on the slope was what really got me hooked onto One Piece. I thought Kuro was an excellent villain.
    Arabasta Arc - It was between this or the Impel Down Arc. However, although Impel Down was great, it had too much running and talking. I like Arabasta because Crocodile was a pretty cool villain with a brilliant plan involved. He was great at manipulating an exciting war and nearly got his way. I thought the final battle with him and Luffy was pretty intense. Never cared much for the other strawhat members and their battles besides Sanji and Mr.2 Bon Kurei. Plus we see more of an insight to Smoker.

    Well since this is the anime section, I'm relating my judgement based upon the anime. I sadly have not read the manga. And I'm not denying that Arlong or Baratie were good arcs. I simply prefer the arcs I listed more than the arcs you added.

    1. Enies Lobby & W7 : EVERYTHING I Love about One Piece was absolutely here. I doubt any arc will ever top it.

    2. Impel Down : Bon-chan made the arc. I'm glad this site did him some justice in the past character tournament.

    3. Arabasta : amazing ending(the "X" farewell) and great villain(Croc)

    4. Skypiea : it has the manliest flashback ever.

    5. Marioneford : the tension, Whitebeard's awesomeness, and the death of ace

    1. Water 7 & Enies Lobby - Things really went in an unexpected direction, and it rocked me!

    2. Arlong Park - This early favorite really showcased the burning fury of Luffy, made Nami one of my favorites, and simply ruled in general.

    3. Thriller Bark - Just completely entertaining and unique, the whole thing felt like a huge movie. And every character had time to shine. Plus added bonus for the epic unexpected bit at the end (with Zoro).

    4. Saboady Archipelago - Really cool, and introduced tons of memorable characters.

    5. Kuro arc - Memorable villains, especially Jango, and a fine time for our heroes.

    1.) Water Seven/Enies Lobby- Introduced a lot of great characters and had a ton of epic battles and great conflicts as well as reviled some of the great secrets of One Piece.
    2.) Marineford- More awesome fights and battles as well as more secrets and some unexpected deaths.
    3.) Alabasta- A lot of funny and incredibly strong foes were introduced plus it had a great storyline.
    4.) Sabaody Archipelago- Introduced us to the Eleven Supernovas and the Celestial Dragons, plus through us all for a loop at the end of the arc.
    5.) Luffy's Flashback- Showed us how Luffy and Ace first met and how they became brothers as well as showing us that there weren't just two brothers at the beginning.

    1. Water 7 - The whole thing was just so brilliant. Very emotional with the Luffy/Usopp fight and the decay of the Going Merry, suspenseful with the CP9 agents and the Iceburg incident and Robin disappearing, and this all under the impending doom of the Aqua Laguna. Besides being so brilliantly put together, that arc showed sides of all Straw Hats we didn't see before.
    2. Baratie Arc - To me, Baratie was what I think Arlong Arc was to many OP fans. It's what got me really addicted to One Piece, I'd stay up till 2 AM to watch episodes consecutively. It had that silliness and humour which made me like it at the beginning, but it also was the part where the series got a lot more interesting, with Zoro vs Mihawk, the promise of the Grand Line and Sanji's story which I really liked. I also loved the cooks at Baratie.
    3. Loguetown Arc - Same effect as Baratie, the story got more interesting, I loved the whole "connect the past with the present" thing. Bit by bit we got to know more about the legend of Gold Roger (which has been done throughout the series and is one of my favourite motives in it), and at the same time it foreshadowed Luffy's greatness. Also similar to Water 7, with the storm and the threatening atmosphere, and then finally the beginning of the legend, entering the Grand Line. Everything that happened at Loguetown made me so excited to find out more about the past and know what would happen to the Straw Hats.
    4. Marineford Arc - Although I really missed the Strawhatness and humour etc, the whole thing was just too epic. After watching the separation of the crew in the anime, I stopped watching and switched to manga only, which turned out to be a very good decision. I sat on the edge of my chair the entire time, flipping (clicking) pages like crazy and gasping for breath everytime something happened. It showed that despite the first half of the adventure and the Grand Line being over, there was still so much more to come, that Oda really has shown us only half of what he can do yet, and that the New World will be so much more than just a continuation of the Grand Line.
    5. Arabasta Arc - Pretty self-evident. Amazing story, the way it was set out was great aswell, the pacing was perfect. I loved the individual fights of Straw Hats against Baroque Works members the most. Pell should have died.

    I hope this doesn't seem like too crappy a top 5 :)

    I have been meaning to go into more detail about my choices. So, here goes.

    Skypiea - To me this arc represents what makes One Piece so incredible. This is a great adventure. The setting is beautiful and is strait out of Oda's imagination (with blatant Heaven imagery and references - regardless). In my opinion a lot of what makes great arc's are the villains and the setting. Skypiea is tops in terms of setting and I will always loved Enel as a crazy villain - his priests weren't the best henchmen but they were still plenty enjoyable. The Norland flashback is one of the greatest One Piece moments ever. For me Arabasta always feels a tad long winded so whenever I read threw One Piece in it's entirety volumes 24, when the SHs leave Arabasta and start making their way to Jaya (and effectively Skypiea) it always feels like such a breath of fresh air. It's a wonderful adventure - and that is what One Piece is all about.

    Water 7 - I think Oda's story telling abilities shine brightest in this arc. I regret not following the series weekly at the time because I could only imagine what a roller coaster of possibilities were going on in the minds of the One Piece faithful. Usopp leaving the SH's? Is Robin (who was always an enigma) friend or foe? Can Iceberg be trusted? What of Gallery La? Who the hell is CP9? Are the Franky Family really that much of a threat? Is Merry really done for? There is so much suspense and uncertainty in the arc it's really juicy and interesting. Personally I don't mind if W7 and Enies Lobby need to be bunched together. I am not one of the detractors of Enies Lobby. Despite the general notion I quite like Lucci as a villain and thought his fight with Luffy was epic. Kaku is still my favorite henchmen (if he can be called that) in the OP verse and his fight with Zoro is a long time favorite. Sanji fight with Jabara (?) was decent, nothing more. Monster Chopper was cool. Franky's fight with the round baby is one of the most underrated OP fights ever. It cracks me up every time. Nami's fight was garbage as usual - Kalifa should have been able to stomp Nami with no problem (it was OK if you are in the mood for some fanservise). Both Robin and Franky's flashback were very emotional and well made (especially Robin's.) Merry's funeral was heartbreaking. I don't love some things. I always felt the Sea train ride went on way to long and I always hate Sanji's fight with that fucking annoying noodle guy. All in all, one of Oda's best.

    Drum - As I said earlier an arc, for me, is often as strong as it's setting and villain. While Wapol is not exactly the most inspired villain in the One Piece canon the island known as Drum is one of Oda's most beautiful settings. Luffy carrying Nami and Sanji up a 90 degree mountainside in sub zero temperature as his fingers were bleeding to save their lives was inspired. I am not going to make any bones about it - a lot of the reason that this arc places so high on my favorites list can be attributed to one man. Dr. Hiruluk. He is undeniably one of Oda's finest creations and his last moments of life where he declares Chopper his son and thanks the heavens for what a wonderful life he has had as he tries to stop the man that is destroying the country that he holds so dear is one that always brings a tear to my eye. Chopper becoming a strawhat was great and Dr. Kureha's emotional send off for her little adopted stray was beautiful. As cherry blossoms fell on a reborn kingdom she shed a single tear.

    Baratie - As the poster above me stated so nicely - the Baratie arc was for me what the Arlong Park was for most fan's of the series. I love the setting of the Baratie. A floating restaurant. Zeff has always been hela cool and the fighting chef's are just awesome characters in general. Krieg, for me, was the first truly dangerous villian. Luffy had never had much hardship defeating past villains but Kreig was more formidable. Also Krieg had an air of, how should I put this, seniority? experience? When Krieg and his men called him the greatest pirate in the East Blue and the strongest in the world I believed them (when I first heard the claims made - well before I had any real grasp of how vast One Piece was.) I think Sanji's flashback is one of the more underrated ones in the series - as people tend to say that Nami's was the first great flashback (and indeed hers was better). Still Sanji's past and his history with Zeff was shocking and far-far better than previous flashbacks (Zoro's, Usopp's were very weak. If you count chapter 1 as Luffy's flashback then it challenges Sanji's I suppose.) I have always loves Luffy's battle with Krieg and his willingness to get hurt to utterly defeat him. Gin and Pearl are the first henchmen of the series I actually really like. More than any of that - the reason that the Baratie arc scores so high on my list is that it is the first time that the One Piece world really starts to seem like a big fucking place and that feeling I am talking about is almost entirely attributed to the entrance of Hawk Eye Mihawk. Zoro, up to this point in the story, was a formidable and talented guy and Mihawk made him look like a child. The guy sliced a fleet of ships in half for fun. He is such an exciting addition to the arc every time I read it. This is not something Toriyama would never do. Goku would never be fighting Frieza in an epic clash of giants only for Majin Buu to peak in and show them just how insignificant and weak they really were in the grand scheme of the universe. But that is exactly what Oda did, and I love him for it.

    Marinford - I put SA in my top 5 and not Marineford? Screw that. I love Marinford because it is the accumulation of the entire first half(ish) of the series clashing on the most epic battle field imaginable. Whitebeard will forever be one of the most awesome characters in the series. When you take the warlonds, the admirals and the whitebeard pirates and you throw them all together you get a wonderful clusterfuck of beautiful violence. I think it is a testament to Oda's ability that when we, the reader, hear something as simple as a rank, like Admiral, we go 'oh shit!, this is going to be awesome!' It would have been so easy for Oda to make the Walords seem weak and inconsequential at this point in the series (as the SHs have already defeated two) but that is not the case at all. Ace'es death and it's effect on Luffy will have implecations for the rest of the series. I love that way back in Arabasta Ace gave Luffy a piece of paper and Oda - over hundreds of chapters managed to snowball that into one of the most important events in the canon. I can't be sure, but I am pretty sure the events that have happened at Marineford will be of huge significance in the New World.

    Honorable Mention.

    Sabaody Archipelago - Love the setting. The Supernova's are awesome. Kizaru and the Kuma bots wrecking the place was a lot of fun. Kuma breaking up the SHs was very emotional and important. Rayleigh - nuff said.

    Arlong Park - Arlong was the first truly despicable villian. He mangled Bellemere's arm and then shot her in the face in front of her two young daughters. I am on my third read threw the series - this last time I read it was the first time I truly understood why so many people love this arc so much. Luffy fighting so hard for Nami was beautiful. Nami asking for help was unforgettable. Nami's flashback still stands among the best.

    Fishman Island - The current arc is stacking up to be a monster. In a way it reminds me of Water 7 a bit. I am dying to see what happens next.

    ^^ the above were based more on the manga rather then the anime - because that is what is freshest in my mind. ^^
