    So it's irreparable huh? I'm fine with it. How can a pirate ship make you crap yourself with a sheep head on it?

    Awesome. Just the right amount of time for you to see the big reveal. If you're not interested by then, then yeah, you may as well stop.

    So the strangeness, humor and setting exploration in the show hasn't been cutting it for you so far, huh?

    So far, they took three episodes to get a ship repaired. And I barely had any reason to care.

    Though Ussop's unusual fascination with large cannons was interesting.

    Because you don't know what Going Merry means to them. Also, there was a good amount of world-building and character introduction (though, again, I can't deny the slow pace).

    Things will pick up. However, it will likely be until next year (mostly due to OP taking December off for movies) when the more interesting parts begin to show.

    For now, the current episodes' focus is to set things up for the arc, and there's a lot of things that need to be set up here.

    The Merry being beyond repair is what really gets things interesting.

    Alright, that sounds interesting. I'll bite, what makes the Merry special?

    Things do sooner or later come full circle or have it's significance. Though the show does assume to some extent that you have all the emotion care for what the main characters of the story have gone through in all the arcs prior to this one. I'll just say the whole "needing to fix the Merry", issue has been brought up since at least the Jaya arc (a little under a hundred episodes back) and couple of interesting things regarding the Merry have happened since that will come back full circle later in the show.

    So I can't blame you if you find it hard to care without knowing any of that stuff prior. Not to mention in spite of how much weird interesting stuff happens, the plot can take it's time to reveal anything that'll come full circle (even the manga as much as I like it is like this every arc). Basically if you watch One Piece, you'll either you'll find the characters and world too interesting to have the plot feel slow or you moan and groan wishing the story will get to the point already. That seems to be the split feeling with the show whenever anyone watches it.
