The Straw Hat Pirates enter the rough seas of the New World in search of the hidden treasures of the Pirate King, Gol D. Roger-One Piece. On their voyage, the pirates come across a terrifying, powerful man, former Marine Admiral Z.

Z is accused of having stolen the "Dyna Stones", weapons believed to have the power to shake up the New World. The Marine Headquarters believes Z is about to use it to end the pirate era, and with it, the lives of many innocent people. In fear of such a phenomenal event, marines start to take action against the former admiral.

Even if it means stumbling upon marines and the navy, the Straw Hat Pirates decided to chase after Z and stop him from causing havoc. As they continue to embark on their ventures, the pirates bump into new and familiar acquaintances.


A limited dual edition ticket for both One Piece Film: Z and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods sold for the screenings of both movies at ¥2,600 the year they premiered, which contained special art by the mangaka of both series.

Regular editions of the DVD/BD in Japan included one of nine different holographic stickers, while the deluxe edition included all nine stickers as well as other bonus material.

Goda strikes again. I can't express in words of how amazing this movie is. All I have to say is go watch it for yourself.

For this review it will be broken down into four parts: Music, Animation, Characters and Story.

If you watched the trailers, you know that two tracks of Avril Lavigne would be played in the movie but you won't hear that until the credit rolls. First half was "How You Remind Me" and then "Bad Reputation" played after that. The original soundtrack was brilliant. It was different while at the same time maintaining that One Piece feel we all love; high tension read more

I'm a pretty huge fan of One Piece. Usually I can forgive anything that I find hard to swallow because it'll be followed up by something that's 100 times more awesome and kickass. Hell, part of why it's probably shounen series.

That being said, let's talk about this movie. I was excited when I first heard of it. They were projecting it to be better than Strong World, and Oda was going to have a hand in it (which meant the possibility of something canon) I couldn't contain myself the first couple months it was in theaters in Japan.

Then life kind of got in the read more

This was probably the best one piece movie (I haven't seen them all though I stopped after movie 6). But even though it was really good in comparison with it's uninteresting predecessors it still had some flows. The story was interesting as a plot but it had some minor problems with the development (some scenes could been cut off like the second batle between Luffy and Z). The good thing is that it had some points of the original anime that we are not seeing now and I at least had miss like the appearance of the admirals especially Kizaru's or the sea read more

One Piece (Movie 12) Film: Z Review

Story (9/10) Great

Film Z's story was great as it is the first movie set in the Shinsekai and it bring a good original story. Due to the similarities shared with One Piece Film: Strong World, this film's canonicity was often subject of discussion. However, Eiichiro Oda himself and, later, Chapter 700 of the manga confirmed that it is not canon. With that being said this can be looked at as the highest tier of non-canon.

Art and Animation (9/10) Great

Some scene were a little iffy and I do think that Strong World is probably still the best read more
