Grading all of One Piece's arcs

Mr. Black Leg

The Ordeal of Love
Romance Dawn Arc: a slow introduction, honestly I've seen far better and far worse, so I'll have to give it a 7/10.

Orange Town Arc: first actual big fight (Alvida and Morgan don't count), with the three of them (Nami, Zoro and Luffy) as a group, badass enough and it has repercussions to this fucking day (Buggy being a fucking crewmember of the fucking PIRATE KING) 8,5/10.

Syrup Village Arc: first actual intricate plot arc. Many badass memories, some nice fights, 8,5/10.

Baratie Arc: Zeff's flashback is so fucking good and Sanji coming in, Gin and Don Krieg, and then FUCKING MIHAWK??? First 9/10 arc.

Arlong Park Arc: if I have to explain why this is 10/10 material, then you are lost. 10/10.

Loguetown Arc: Smoker was a BADASS in this arc. So many iconic shit, Buggy trying to execute Luffy, Luffy "Sorry, I'm dead", FUCKING DRAGON, and the best part of the entire arc "Sorry little girl, it seems my pants ate your ice cream". Good enough, 8/10.

Reverse Mountain Arc: LABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON. And fucking Crocus man. MOTHERFUCKING CROCUS. "Don't. Or someone will die.", "And who that may be?", "Me.". Comedic gold, possibly the best joke in the entirety of One Piece. 8.9/10

Whisky Peak Arc: Luffy's and Zoro's little fight? ZORO FUCKING UP EVERYONE BY HIMSELF (I have to mention Zoro overpowering Miss Monday, one of the best Zoro scenes). AND THE INTRO TO VIVI and the start of the unreveling of a huge plot with Alabasta. 9/10.

Little Garden Arc: SO MUCH BADASS SHIT and an amazing set up arc not only for Alabasta but for the One Piece universe in general, we got to know so much shit in this arc, amazing world building. 9/10.

Drum Island Arc: HILU-FUCKING-LUCK. It wasn't all that amazing, IMO, but by virtue of Hiluluk and Chopper, this is 8.5/10. Fun fact: first arc I've watched of One Piece as a child.

Alabasta Arc: 10/10, don't have to explain why.

Jaya Arc: amazing set up for Skypiea. Blackbeard being there and being one of the big bads (If not the big bad) and being introduced as a perfect foil to Luffy ... That arc is amazing as what it tried to be: a set up arc. With amazing moments (One punch Luffy), sure, but it was a set up arc and it delivered it's mission. Also Noland/Calgara. 9.5/10.

Skypiea Arc: so many badasses scenes, an amazing plot, emotion through and through. 9.5/10

Long Ring Long Land Arc: set up arc that is in and of itself quite weak plotwise, but as a support/set up arc it kinda works (Not only to Water 7 and Robin, but to the fucking strength of Admirals), Kuzan being introduced is what it saves this from a score like 6/10, this is a solid 8/10 because of Aokiji and Aokiji alone.

Water 7 Arc: 10/10.

Enies Lobby Arc: 10/10.

Post-Enies Lobby Arc: GARP? ACE AND BLACKBEARD??? FRANKY ??? THE YONKO??? Solid 8.5/10.

Thriller Bark Arc: This is an arc that gets way too much shit and I think it's just amazing. Comedy gold (Luffy putting the zombies back??? Trying to tame cerberus? Luffy saying "that old man with a big wound"? FUCKING DOCKING???) and the whole mysterious/horror movie theme throughout the arc? I loved it. Not to mention Kuma, THE STRAWHATS FIGHTING AS A GROUP and "Nothing happened". Honestly? Solid 9.5/10.

Sabaody Archipelago Arc: Honestly this is like, I know people don't say it's a bad arc, but people don't talk about how good it was and that in and of itself irritates me. This is one of the best arcs in One Piece. Alabasta level. Think about how a fucking SET UP ARC (Which is essentially what this arc is) IS FUCKING ALABASTA LEVEL AND BE GRATEFUL WE HAVE ONE PIECE AND ODA, WHAT OTHER FICTION YOU CONSUME THAT HAS AN ENTIRE ARC THAT IS A SUPPORT ARC THAT IS 10/10??? BECAUSE THIS IS 10/10.

Amazon Lily Arc: eeeeeh ... Didn't like it very much, I loved the Boa Hancock sob story (It was amazing) and some things with Haki and all, another set up arc, 7/10.

Impel Down Arc: 10/10.

Marineford Arc: 10/10.

Post-War Arc: a little slow, yeah, but many things were answered and Haki getting explained ? Nice. 8/10.

Return to Sabaody Arc: expected much, much more, and build up a decent amount of hype 8.5/10

Fish-Man Island Arc: FUCKING HODY JONES AS THE FIRST VILLAIN AFTER THE TS WHEN WE WERE FUCKING HYPED UP TO THE HIGH HEAVENS????? This shit would be a 7/10 if it was a normal arc, but for being an arc that we waited for such a long time. When was the first mention of Fishman Island and the first indications we would have an arc there??? FOR HOW MANY YEARS DID ODA MAKE US WAIT FOR THIS LITTLE SHIT??? And to deliver this, after not only hyping FI but hyping the return of the SH's??? 6.5/10.

Punk Hazard Arc: also disappointing, but not as bad as FI, 7.9/10.

Dressrosa Arc: also disappointing in some parts, too many fucking panels wasted on dwarves and not enough one Luffy vs Dofla, Law vs Dofla, Law vs Fujitora and Dofla. 8/10, could've been Alabasta level.

Zou Arc: OUR BOY ODA DID IT AGAIN: ANOTHER SET UP ARC THAT IS 10/10 ALL DAY EVERYDAY.

Whole Cake Island Arc: Luffy's fight with Katakuri saves this arc and makes me obligated to give this 8.5/10. This would be a 6/10 if it wasn't for that amazing fight.

Levely Arc: other than being waaaaaaaaaay too small, this is the most perfect fanservice giving us everything we ever wanted, could be like 11/10 if we got to see the fights tho 10/10.

Wano Country Arc: up until now? 8/10. Has the potential to be a 10/10.

Subject to change....
Even if you absolutely adore One Piece, surely there must be an average 5/10 arc that you're weighing the others against
