This is the fifth One Piece movie, theoretically taking place after the Navarone arc and before they go to Water 7. Yes, exactly, it takes place around the same time as the previous movie because the anime started to slow down considerably. The formula so far was to make one movie taking place after a new crew member joins (the first after Usopp, the second after Sanji, the third after Chopper, and the fourth after Robin) In this case, the anime took hundreds of episodes until the next member (Franky) was added, so they went for a tiny gimmick. They though “hey you guys, we read more

I am a huge fan of One Piece, and I know for a fact that many people also love it! But something I really hate is when a bad movie is created using "One Piece" as the title. That's exactly what happened here with "One Piece: Norowareta Seiken".

This movie doesn't even compare to the awesomeness that One Piece offers. I'm guessing that whoever wrote the script for this didn't really have "One Piece" in mind. They very well could have just written a script and thrown the cast of One Piece into the roles.

It's necessary to be harsh with this movie because it read more

Obviously if you are watching this movie you have seen the series, and have in all likelihood seen the first 4 movies, so I will save the talk about having to be a fan to see this first. So I will just jump into it section by section.

Story: Not bad. One piece has had some pretty terrible storylines in the past, and so this movie was easily forgiven by having a passable story, and one that focuses on one of my favorite characters Zoro. I didn't love it, I didnt hate it, so it gets a 5.

Art: Very One Piece style. read more

2/10 - thank god the original isnt like this.

1. the story is cliche - and not just a bit but way way way too lame. the thing about one piece is that it manage to give ordinary cliche settings a big twist, which is why i love the anime - but this totally failed to happen here. most lines are expected; plot extremely predictable. i was hoping they might turn the whole demon-sword concept into something interesting, but that's so not happening here.

2. characterization was off - personal opinion here, but sanji and zoro's characters are wrong (what did you do to my read more

Both involve evil swords that can possess, good fights. Don't forget how both swords are cursed and can bring the world into darkness forever. If you saw this movie or the one I'm suggesting you must see the movie attached to the suggestion!
