One Piece episode of Sabo... Overall I enjoyed it, but definitely have some complaints.

For a special called episode of Sabo, there really wasn't enough Sabo. Like, the majority of the special is the Dressrosa arc in hyper-speed or something, and most of it just feels like padding. Counting all the new material this probably wouldn't have even been 15 minutes long...

As I just mentioned, the pacing is way too fast, and full of stuff that's really irrelevant to what most of us want. Like the Law, Fuji, and Doffy bits felt so slapped in there.
Again, another issue with the pacing is some stuff felt read more

I was really disappointed by this special. They marketed it as a special about Sabo with "content never seen before in the anime/manga." This is about as far as you can get from that, being almost entirely recap of Dressrosa with a couple new scenes from Sabo's perspective. That's it.

What I really wanted was some sort of side story featuring Sabo and some of the other revolutionaries like Koala and Hack. They could've done a continuation of Robin's separation story in Tequila Wolf and had them do some sort of mission together. I don't care if it ends up being non-canon, it's not a whole read more

Great, enjoyable movie. An special all about one of my favourite characters Sabo. The updated animation on the dressrosa scenes are really well done. However it seems like there was much too content to fit into one film and as a result seemed like it would be a bit confusing to people not watching at some points and let some characters have very few scenes still it was very enjoyable overall

OP Episode of Sabo focuses on 2 main things:
1. The childhood memories of the legendary 3 brothers.
2. The Dressrosa Arc until Sabo gets the Mera Mero no Mi.

So, if you want to re-visit the captivating and heart touching moments of Luffy, Ace and Sabo's life and also want a recap of Dressrosa with respect to Sabo's point of view, you will definitely enjoy it.

Story: 9/10
Of course the story of Sabo's return is great but at this point it's nothing new for the One Piece fans. Still, its feel nice to go through it again with Sabo's face fully exposed during the whole episode. xD

Art: 9/10
