My first review:

This OVA was made before the One Piece anime even started, so it's not the One Piece you're used to watching, but the characters and feel that is One Piece are still there.

The story is set sometime after the Buggy the Clown Arc, before they meet Usopp.
It was released a year before the One Piece anime, so it's 1998 animation, but still great. The animation is like that of the anime with the only difference being that Luffy seems to have more gelatin like movements. The crew's designs are a little different, but not too much, the only difference that really stood out read more

This is the very first piece of one piece animation. The voices are somewhat different, the faces are very different and the animation is anything but splendid, however the story that is told is still classic one piece. It is still luffy who goes on an adventure. Who saves the day and wants to become pirate king. You cannot call yourself an one piece fan without having seen this special at least once.

Both are OVA's that were shown in Weekly Shonen Jump's Super Anime Tour in 1998. The animation style/voice actors/BGM are also different from the 1999 series.
