After suffering great personal loss during the battle of Marineford, Monkey D. Luffy finds himself stranded on Rusukaina, a treacherous island crawling with huge and dangerous creatures. There, he has committed himself to a two-year stretch of training to learn "Haki," the energy that combatants can use to grant themselves a variety of abilities in battle.

Luffy is jerked away from his otherwise peaceful training by the abduction of Sandersonia and Marigold, sisters of his friend and ally Boa Hancock. With Boa's aid, Luffy seeks to track down the infamous pirate responsible for the kidnapping, a man whose recent prison break is the result of Luffy's own reckless actions. Luffy must use his developing grasp of Haki to defeat this new foe while coming to terms with his overbearing grief in the process.

One Piece 3D2Y: Overcome Ace's Death! Luffy's Vow to his Friends is not about what the title suggests it is, but the side story presented is engaging (at least on some level) to any fan of One Piece.

There is a lot of re-animation of previous events in the show, especially in the beginning of the special in which the Marineford Arc is condensed to a few minutes in an almost comedic manner. Though it is cool to see older scenes in the alternative animation style of the special, all of the rehashing was unnecessary in terms of plot and good storytelling. Besides that, the plot read more

Following the events of Marineford, Luffy is in the midst of training with Rayleigh when a pirate by the name of Burndy World arises after escaping from Impel Down. With the intent of kidnapping one of the seven warlords, World ends up taking Boa Hancock's sisters as hostage. Luffy and Hancock team up to take down Burndy World and save Hancock's sisters.

Story: 8
From the original synopsis, I was under the impression that this would be a movie depicting Boa as a damsel in distress for Luffy to come and rescue from the hands of an evil pirate. I was so pleased that this was read more

Note: This is my first review..

One of the best special ep.. Its almost like a movie rather than a special..the story talks about friendship "nakama" and the hardship they've been through and brotherhood betrayal.. Fight scenes are EPIC as always .. Those flashbacks brings back the good memories of the times when i watch anime while they are still on grandline.. Boa hancock is as hot as ever. It give me more reason to like her. Luffy's antagonist devil fruit is quite bad ass. And some hilarious and bad ass character are in this special episode too. So overall if you love one piece read more

One Piece 3D2Y: Ace no shi wo Koete! Luffy Nakama Tono Chikai Review

Story (9/10) Great

With a story arc that takes place during the time-skip of One Piece where Luffy goes to Amazon Lily Island to learn and train his Haki with the assistance of Rayliegh, I thought this episode special fit in quite well. It doesn't break off and do it's own thing that would hinder the cannon story of One Piece which I don't think this is considered canon but like I said earlier since it happens during the time-skip i wouldn't see why it shouldn't. Execution with the plot that was given was read more
