really? the alabasta arc was one of my favorites. once you hit sandy island. it becomes epic. crocodile is one of the best one piece villians. there is much manipulative bastardy. and some very awesome battles.
Thriller bark and skypeia arcs both bored me. almost left the series slogging through thriller bark. Their main villians just didn't do it for me and the motivations were generic villiany.
then Sabaody went up and bam! then it was epic chapter after chapter till the latest break.
i rank the arcs:
Impel Down arc
Water 7 arc
other East Blue arcs
Thriller bark arc
Davy back fight arc
