Just because there is little to no influence from the filler arcs, you can skip them and still enjoy One Piece. You can watch the fillers later when you’re done with the series, and you crave for more one piece. 

Now let’s talk about where you can watch One Piece. The best option is Crunchyroll, where half of the world watches anime. You will find the anime divided into two parts on the Crunchyroll website, and each arc is properly shown with its respective episodes. You will need to buy a subscription to watch it without the ads popping up!

The other best option is the official Funimation, which has both the dub and sub. Mostly, people watch the anime in sub because of the authentic feeling you get while watching it, but there are some who prefer Luffy in his rusky English voice. You can find all the arcs in one piece on this website. You’ll need a subscription to Funimation to watch all the episodes in dub.
