Tite Kubo’s series has made a name for itself One piece And Naruto as the holy trinity of long-running shonen that emerged from the 2000s. However, it came to a point where the series fell short of the other two and was ultimately canceled in 2012 after just over 350 episodes. There were several reasons for this unsettling turn of events for fans. At this point, bleaching had pretty much caught up with the manga and so had to resort to more lackluster filler, and given the anime’s declining ratings, that just wasn’t feasible.
