I could tolerate it's quirks before when I was younger, as a person and as a fiction consumer, now I know better and what can and is able to be done, has been done so I can't tolerate much more. I'll probably stop by when it finally ends till then I'm out. Shame too, it has a lot of good parts and is a big part of my anime childhood , still remember the first few episodes being released, pre time skip etc. It all boils down to these: Luffy is too annoying it was obvious before but with more and more episodes it's getting increasingly annoying. He's way too immature, dumb, well insults will not run out and those insults are facts since plot armour is the only reason he is alive. (Oda mentioned he gave Luffy his ability since he wants even near endgame Luffy to still be goofy hence the rubber abilities so I imagine he'll never mature, his grandfather also doesn't make it better as reference material). Luffy vs major enemy of this arc, each and every time he gets a do over, he loses first a few times, takes a few breathers and breaks in between those losses or even while losing and fighting. There's no weight to his victories as an individual vs another individual, he always gets help in some shape or form. If you make him fight the same person he beat soon after with no help he'll lose without plot armour. His hero complex of saving people wherever he goes and getting in everyone's business, I get it's for the plot for each island but still, he makes friends and gets attached and basically treats them as (temporary) crew members each and every time. And he's already a terrible captain. He sucks as an mc basically, it's not just him but most of the mcs have too much plot armour that allow dumb decisions and personalities without any backlash for their stupidity, naruto's talk no jutsu is one honestly I don't like blondey the other characters just like in one piece mostly non-team members /enemies are what make the show, the Akatsuki, the yonko, supernovas etc but unfortunately these people always get involved with the protagonist and are victims of their plot armour. Ichigo has his faults but he is the only protagonist from way back in the Big four era that I can still Stand where I'm able to watch the entire anime without skipping episodes, if I wanted to. (fairy tail no longer exists in my memory, it was taken out with the trash where it belongs) It all basically boils down to the writer, I always told people I wouldn't finish AOT since I caught wind of some things the author said about planning to kill everyone off and his main goal for his anime, I'm already attached to the main cast so I'd rather not see their tragic ending aka not a happy ending. Oda seems to want to write this fun, journey adventure with a goal at the end basically a children's tale. So it won't ever get real serious for too long. Luffy will always be a joke and the story won't change to a more serious tone but like AOT it was obvious from day one, it was just easy to forget since they are really good in the way they tell their story. You get captured by the action sequences, characters, world building forgetting what exactly you should expect when really the authors have always shown you how things are going to go. For instance sasha's death in Aot was a wake up call to jump ship for me, that's the author saying no happy ending. One piece is going to be a happy ending but it's gotten too cartoonish for me to continue. It's like a cartoon in every way with it's selling points that don't affect the cartoon like nature. Don't get me wrong some of my favorite characters like Law, Shanks, Hancock and honestly a few more are from one piece but it's too silly to wait anxiously for updates on. They haven't changed over the years it's just my tastes have evolved. It's kind of sad I can't enjoy it anymore when I used to love it so much. I guess it's just my style of reading, that's one thing that hasn't changed over the years although my taste has evolved to no idiot mcs, but whenever I watch or read anything, I always get attached to the main character since the story is based on and follows them so I'm usually on their side so them acting stupid gets to me.
