Yes. Read the manga. The manga for OP is far and away the best possible way to experience it. The art is beautiful, there are colored scans, reading 1000 chapters is way faster than watching 1000 episodes, and the pacing isn't absolutely horrendous. The anime has one very very large problem, and that is that none of the people making it are willing to do anything but keep pumping out episodes every week of canon content. They have long since gotten to a point where they are only adapting one chapter into an episode, and when most anime take 3-4, that completely shoots the pacing. They have to add, like, seven minutes of credits+recap and then when they get to the episodes, they're a mix of actual canon story, reaction shots that are reused five times or more in the space of a single scene for seconds at a time, and elongating fights that were really short in the manga and thus making characters essentially feel threatened by what is a joke in the manga. The worst part is that if they did what OTHER anime do, and add filler arcs, this wouldn't be an issue. People could skip over the filler, the filler could potentially be good (because OP's anime actually has one of the best filler arcs ever made and with Oda recently taking direct involvement in the movies, he could also get involved in filler content for the anime), and the pacing for the actual story would be a million times better. Not to say the anime doesn't do some things right, when it does a scene good it does it REALLY good, and the voice acting is perfectly on point, dub and sub. But I wouldn't say it's worth it to go through the whole anime just for that. My heartiest recommendation is reading the manga, preferably the colored scans because they are beautiful, and then watching clips of really good scenes in the anime on Youtube. And watching the G-8 filler arc, that is very important.
