It's like the difference between listening to Future vs Kendrick. One excels in whats mostly an extremely shitty subgenre vs true artistic talent that adds artistic value to the respective media.
You misunderstand.
I mean category as in level.
OP is 2Pac. Magi and Fairy Tail are Pitbull and Soulja Boy
They shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath

Naruto and those other series are shallow as fuck and too idealistic whereas One Piece is more complex but also more grounded.

Doesn't take much to notice those differences.
Youre describing differences within the same structure. At the end of the day its still #poweroffriendship and #lovewillwinall. The difference in dynamic between Luffy and Sangi and Alladin and Alibaba makes almost zero difference when at the end of the day the cliche is still fulfilled. Naruto had its own little twist between Sasuke and Narutos frenemy relationship but again that makes no difference when Naruto defeats his opponent or some huge trial with #poweroffriendship.

What things do Naruto, Luffy, Alibaba, Rin, Gon all have in common? Some deeply flawed character with tremendous potential after some almost unreachable goal that make a group with other deeply flawed character who win and get better by #poweroffriendship. Filling in the little differences here and there dont make much of a difference they still follow the same structure.

OP is higher in that shitty genre than most anime people watch. I have no problem admitting that

One Piece very rarely plays a friendship card because that's not the emphasis of the series. It's not like Naruto who constantly wants to save Sasuke because he's his childhood friend or characters getting a bs powerup because their friend is in trouble.

And it does make a difference. A series who constantly has to play the friendship card shows laziness and lack of creativity. Oda is the opposite of that and it shows through not only his art style but his writing as well.

Oh dude I agree 100%

OP = FT = Magi

I just wanted to know what some other posters felt about this

Sorry dru, but your taste is still stuck in the late 90s. The samurai and ninja have been replaced by cucks-stuck-in-video-game settings, the big tits have been replaced by lolis and traps.

Perhaps you should consider upgrading your plebeian taste to a more patrician level, perhaps explore the endless possibilities of the "cute girls doing cute things" genre?

If by this point you are not watching school girls practicing World War 2 era tank warfare, here are some samurai/ninja/tits classics not on your list (you've probably watched or heard of these):
  • Basilisk (ninja, very action heavy, very similar to Ninja Scroll)
  • Hellsing (vampires, not Twilight, watch the 2006 Ultimate series)
  • Trigun (Kenshin but with guns)
  • Black Lagoon (modern pirates)

Some more modern stuff:
  • Darker than Black (assassins with superpowers)
  • Tokyo Ghoul (ask Allan)
  • Psycho Pass (GiTS vibes, RnB favorite )
jammin's extra special recs (might be out of your... comfort zone):
  • Baccano (closest thing to a Tarantino flick)
  • Prison School (tits, ass, humor, tits)
  • One Punch Man (humor, really great art)
  • School Days (masterpiece)
