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.

Fantastic arc, the special is good but I don’t think it hits nearly as hard as the O.G anime series as the anticipation and emotions were not as strong due to the shorter length of the special vs the anime series. Also the recap at the beginning wasted a bit of time that could have been put more towards the arlong/nami arc. The special is great as a recap/highlight for people who have already viewed the arc in the anime but I don’t think you should watch this special as a first time viewer. On a positive note the animation in the special is amazing ...

This is a compact version of Arlong Park Arc from the anime.This one haven't useless scenes,it's the story,the fight and the drama.

The story is about one of the Muggiwara team,the navigator nami,and how he lived before meeting Luffy and Zoro.The story is pretty sad,and i'm cried the two times i watched(in the anime and in this ova),the art,song and characters is the same of the anime.But i liked this one the most because the story is cleaner and faster,so you can enjoy the fights better.

And that's all,i haven't a lot to say about this,its good,and if you haven't the patience to the anime slow progression ...

Luffy's hat is way too big, -10 points. No, but seriously, his hat looks like it's bulging or something instead of resting comfortably on his little dummy head. In fact, you can see it on the cover for this page, Nami could be hiding a sandwich under there.

Anyway, to the review. For some context, I'm currently on episode 208 or so, just beginning the Water 7 arc. I discovered this special when watching an AMV with the first ending song, Memories. 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. ...
