Fans of One Piece have constantly debated on which arc is better between Marineford and Wano Saga. Though Wano Saga was highly anticipated, some One Piece fans have argued that it still pales in epicness when compared to Marineford. On the other hand, some fans have favored Wano Saga, citing that Marineford is lacking in terms of complexity of story.
Marineford was undoubtedly epic in terms of its fight scenes. Many legendary characters like Garp, Sengoku, Tsuru, Shirohige, and the admirals Akainu, Kizaru, and Aokiji joined forces with the strongest fighters from the Navy. The Seven Warlords, Mihawk, Boa Hancock, Gecko Moria, Kuma, and Doflamingo, and two former Warlords, Jinbe and Sir Crocodile, also appeared. Lastly, the Commanders of the Whitebeard Pirates all proved their strength in the war. The plot of Marineford also stirred emotions from fans with the deaths of Ace and Shirohige.
Meanwhile, fans of Wano Saga argued that it’s just as epic as Marineford, with the appearances of Akazaya Nine, Tobi Roppo, and Kaido’s Three Calamities. The surprise factor of Luffy, Law, and Kidd’s Awakening of their Devil Fruits has also been a fan favorite. Moreover, the satisfaction of seeing the defeat of two Yonkos, Big Mom and Kaido, is something that Marineford didn’t offer. Additionally, many mysteries were unfolded in Wano Saga about Oden’s past, Wano’s connection with Poneglyphs, and the existence of the ancient weapon Pluton.
It’s entirely subjective as to which saga One Piece’s fans prefer. Nonetheless, it’s important for both sides to continue supporting Eiichiro Oda’s ongoing adventure of Luffy with the Straw Hat crew.
