Skip 54-60
Pick up at 61-97 (Episode 61 NOTE: You’ll see the end of the filler arc real quick, so just bear with it or skip till you see them in the storm about to cross the red line. Then while they are going up you’ll see main villian of this arc appear but then disappear.)

Skip 131-143
Pick up at 144-195
Skip 196-206 (G8 Filler Arc NOTE: The Straw Hats landed in the ocean not inside G8 navel base. G8 feels like actual cannon because the writers are very good at working things into the plot. You could watch this and it won’t be as eye burning as you might think. But as long as you understand what I said before then you can skip it.)

The rest of the series is a REAL piece of work. The writers throw in implied filler to drag out the episodes as well as slow pacing. If this bothers you, the manga is very fast paced and not dragged out. I dont know how anyone can watch this anime anymore. Manga is so much better.

You’ll notice that One Piece rarely has much filler arcs compared to Bleach where everything is half and half. Most of the filler arcs in OP are tolerable but some are just bad. G8 is by far the best filler arc in OP.
