Nami betrays the Straw Hat crew and steals their ship and treasures, escaping to Arlong Park. Luffy and his crew follow her, only to come face to face with the infamous pirate Arlong, a ruthless fish-man who has taken over Nami's home island with force and Naval bribes. As opinions clash and the Straw Hats attempt to convince Nami to rejoin the team, her true motivation behind the deception will be revealed at last.

First of all, I really enjoyed watching the "Arlong Park" arc all over again.
I like nami background story the most and seeing old characters like Genzo and Nojiko was really nice. Also, seeing it now had a great rewatch value (which I will talk about later).

I'm sure many agree that the Arlong Arc is when One Piece gets serious and as such I had high expectations for this special. ...
