First of all, i wanna thank rickylrico (http://myanimelist.net/profile/rickylrico) for reviewing episode of Luffy, if it wasnt for him, i wouldn't have made this review or watched the Episode/Movie.

So lets begin!

Story: Its Great.. Its like a movie because it runs for about 1 hour and 45 minutes. It begins when Usopp announces the "Strawhat Crew Fasion Show", its basically just an into. Then they get blown to an Hand Shaped Island by a huge cannon ball. Then the Strawhat Crew help an old man get a special doll back to his son that is currently in the Navy and they stop an ugly, evil man/woman/other/not specified read more

The introduction the Straw Hat crew gave us at the beginning was nice and funny. ;D

The story in Hand Island was not that special, but you did get to see 'some' of the character's improvements after the two year time-skip. It was again one of those stories where the crew meets new people and helps them out by defeating some bad guy(s). Also, Hand Island is shaped like a hand.

The first flashback was great. It was about the first chapter of the manga where Shanks is with Luffy. It is just like in the manga with the story behind Luffy's scar and all. There are read more

Story: The story is good, but a little basic. I don't want to give spoilers, but a town is being terrorized by marines, and in the story you get two flashbacks of the first episode of One Piece.

Art: The art is not as good as in the anime, it sometimes looks like the characters are flat. Also the faces look sometimes kind of weird.

Sound: The sound is just as good as always, especially at the end. At the end you here a song, that all of you know, and you will get really fired up.

Characters: The characters we also know from the anime are amazing. read more

This episode really was just another enjoyable episode with the mugiwaras. Just like the Episode of Nami, this was a episode recapping on the back story of luffy. It was really a amusing plot from the beginning towards the very end. It set a reminder of how far Luffy has came and showing how much he has area of him.

With giving this a overall 10 for Story, Art, Sound, Character, and Enjoyment. Episode of Luffy is something i would watch again for the 3rd time
