Imo compared to pre-TS, currently Oda drags an arc to inefficiently because he makes more of unimportant prolonged fights against fodders in the spotlite instead of summarizing or shortening them, gags and shenanigans within war that important characters inappropriately do, empty hypes that doesn't deliver, mini-stories or mini-arcs within the arcs themselves like Wedding Cake or Fire Yokai, stuff like that. If he get rid of those and just focus the spotlite properly on important stories, important battles, important developments, every arc will be extremely good.

Wano is better than WCI, sure. But WCI is not really the gold standard of an epic story arc. Wano is barely above average. Without rooftop piece, its below average. But thats not what we were promised. According to Oda, it was supposed to be an arc that makes Marineford look cute. The readers believed in him and patiently waited for the payoff. Even tolerated Big Mom's hungry tantrums due to Oda's pre-TS track record. However, Oda delivered us Yamato, Momo, Oden's 5 years' naked dance, a soulless antagonist who ranked 65th in the popularity poll, incompetent Tobi Roppo, tons of forgettable side characters and fucking Big Mom once again!
Yes Wano has very plotlines because Oda wants to wrap everything up with Emperors before going in the end of the series.
Also why are you criticizing the good parts if you really want complain then say Tama plotline, Big Mom amnesia, Mother mode, Kinemon returning because Kaido didnt cut him good, Fire Yokai etc
How long have you been reading One Piece? "One Piece is the best selling manga" has been the go-to argument of every One Piece fan. And stfu with "just enjoy the series" shit. When fans waited patiently year after year, they have a right to vent their frustration. The decline in sales is directly correlated to the quality of the manga.
Did you even read what i wrote i said if you want to criticize the series just open a thread not make a stupid thread about sales and talking about it. I just posted my opinions and if you really dont enjoy the series then just take a break.
Quality of the manga is a factor this is true but i said "more sales doesnt mean a better series.". If quality is the only factor in sales then Monster should have the best selling volumes.
