Preparing to watch the anime One Piece is akin to getting ready for a marathon. It is going to take a long time to get through the entire thing, and more people will look for a way to make it easier to do. For long anime series such as One Piece, that is generally by avoiding any “filler” episodes.
The excellent news about One Piece is that the series is broken up into pretty distinct arcs, sets of episodes that deal with specific happenings in the life of Monkey D. Luffy and his companions—as such, skipping the filler episodes is pretty easy to do.

What is a Filler Episode?
People will argue about exactly which episodes constitute as filler, but the definition of a filler episode is clearer, thankfully. Filler episodes are any episodes that do not move the main narrative forward or are not based on anything from the source material that inspired the anime.
The reason for this is the anime version of a manga can often fill in the time between the manga being written and moving the main story forward. Due to the length of time it can take for a long-running manga series to be written, the animes will often come up with new stories to explore to continue having content for the show.
