Oh please, do feel free to send me anything One Piece related.
I was anime only (but avoided any filler episodes) but stopped watching midway Dressrosa arc (during Luffy vs Chinjao). Picked it up again this august and caught up in about 3 weeks. Then I continued with the manga since I figured that once the series ends I'll probably be spoiled before it gets animated. I noticed how superior the manga was and then just started reading from Chapter 1 till our current 974. Gotta say, binge reading the manga was soooo good, much better than binge watching Dressrosa-Wano.
kek ye,anime dressrossa sucked.I was really tempted to drop the anime mid-arc and pick up the manga from there,but I somehow managed to carry it through till the end,and picked up the manga at the start of zou.I haven't binge read the manga from the beginning yet,my plan is to do that once the series ends.
as for one piece content,main thing you can do is follow Artur on twitter.This man is a treasure,the work he does for the community is amazing.Feel free to browse through his blog,the library of ohara(same link posted above with the fanmade chapters),there's ton of cool stuff on there(like all the translated info of the vivre cards databook).
Other than that,if you have a lot of free time and want to really get into the fandom,here's some youtubers:
Tekking-does disscussions about literally anything in the story,and also chapter reviews
RogersBase-does chapter live reactions/reviews,plus a bunch of other anime and video game stuff(mostly shonen jump and nintendo)
KOL-does chapter live reactions,and some disscussions when he feels like it.Content is more on the meme-y side.
Library of Ohara-Artur's yt channel.He usually posts stuff he wants to talk about in his blogs but works better in a video format.
Official Youtube channel-the official channel for one piece,run by (I think?) some of Oda's editors.For now it's mostly just product commercials,but since it's official I thought I'd post it.And also that channel banner was drawn by Oda!And look,Vivi and Jinbe are on there too!(according to Oda Vivi's still a strawhat)
Yonko-this guy is mainly an anime news leaker on twitter,follow him on there if you want to get very early hints about upcoming anime related stuff(like manga getting anime adaptations,or new seasons of stuff being announced).He's also a big one piece fan,so I thought I'd mention him.
I guess check'em out and see which ones you like.Also if you want,I think all of them other than sawyer have an active twitter account,so you can follow them on there too.
Twitter and yt are the main sites where I get my info from.Other than that,if you didn't know already,official translations of chapters are available for free on Viz if you live in an english speaking country(or use a vpn :P),or on Mangaplus if you live anywhere else(Personally I don't like the official translation that much,but it's the best we got since the 2 main fan translation groups got shut down after being given a cease and desist)
And since you just caught up recently,in case you haven't seen them,here's the recent cup noodle promo commercials that have really good animation and a lot of easter eggs(Artur has easter egg videos for them on his channel):
i mostly watch tekking because the dude is funny to watch plus he brings alot of energy when he talks, i stilll say one pice needs wayyy more time than 5 years to finsih off , id say no later than 2030 atleast.

I wish I had your patience :( I used to wait for the actual chapter to be released but since the Oden Flashback's started I couldn't wait a day longer so I just looked up at the spoilers.
And yeah on the 1v1 fights. I just remembered that Orochi had his own Task Force. So most Straw Hats can take one of them at a time, barring Zoro and Sanji for bigger threats. I need a 1v1 Zoro and King in my life.
Are you one of those who think that the Grand Fleet will appear in Wano or one of those that think it'll appear on the Blackbeard/WG/Final arc? I think I'm the latter. But the sheer fact of Big Mom being in Wano makes me think that Jinbei should arrive in Wano at some point and another part of me wants Jinbei to bring the grand fleet with him >.<
I mean,I feel like they have to?It was teased that they'll take part in the greatest war,and that's what kaido wants to make.It just works.
As for jinbe,I still subscribe to the homie theory.If that's not true,then his introduction in the arc will just be a repeat of his whole cake introduction,just saving the strawhats in the last minute,and that seems boring.
i jus want him to come back and stay with the crew already like he jus joined and left, and he had really awesome moments in whole cake especially when he surfed a freaking tidal wave. but i feel after wano stuff will die down and resolve itself, cause after wano theirs 2 warlords left, well 1 if luffy and shanks team up to take out blackbeard, then after that 1 final showdown with the marines at laugh tale then series done imo but well have to do alot of resoulton and wrap up cause oda cannot be dropping anymore hints cauase we have enough as is
Side note,but my manga app posted a different translation from the one I read yesterday,(which was also a lot better than what I read)and after a bit of digging I found out that it was made by cupboard scans.Their translations seem to be the best ones we got right now,so try to follow them for now if you were using other sources.
That Kinemon gif is extremely accurate. I just find it so amusing that Oda made him look so serious at that panel.
And aaaah, X-Drake, my once favorite supernova. Seeing that fanart reminded me that in One Piece world it's been a week since the Marines tried to aprehend the Shichibukai right? I wonder if we get any updates on that in between Acts 3 and 4 or if they straight up leave it for after Wano as a whole.
couldn't find anything specific,but I remembered that right before the part 2 end we had a mini timeskip where we just zoomed by the last 4-5 days till the raid in a few panels,so I guess it could work out.
I actually really liked it.After having all of those flashback chapters where the pacing was really fast,it's nice to have a slower-paced chapter that focuses on the details a bit more.I also especially liked the dialouge between momo and luffy,it's nice setup for the climax of the war,and it sorta gave me Robin Enies Lobby vibes.Just really good all around.
And Jinbe is back!!And with that,the homie theory is proven wrong.But now,I have to wonder,what was the point of making him stay behind a second time,instead of him joining up at the end of whole cake? Maybe he brought the rest of the charlottes with him? I'd be cool to see katakuri take part in the war.
Jinbe's smile in the last few panels is precious. Hmmmmm. Idk about him bringing the Charlottes (I'm a firm believer that Katakuri and co will stay in WCI only for Blackbeard to invade while Big Mom is in Wano). But, I could see Jinbe gathering some of their other allies like renmants of Whitebeard (along with Marco and Ino) and Germa 66 (they were together in WCI after all). This would leave the Grand Fleet for later.
I mean ye,most likely.Just imagine the double page spread of the scabbards entering kaido's mansion in onigashima.
Speaking of stuff that Oda will make true,I like the idea that the symbol they used on the pieces of paper to tell people a rebellion is happening will actually be Luffy's face in gear 4,the shapes line up too well for it to be a coincidence.
