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 ...

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
This was a fine movie overall, but it never really engaged me. The plot setup itself is pretty boring, and the first bit of it is mostly a quick recap of certain events, which was nice to see some of the scenes reanimated but not really necessary. The main villain got some development towards the end, but it felt kind of hollow, and I didn't really care. The dialogue is pretty one-dimensional and plain, which also just makes it unable to engage me.

Besides that, there are some nice moments with Buggy, Hancock has a handful of nice scenes, and with the little bits of fight ...
