Woonan is the legendary Great Gold Pirate, earning the nickname after accumulating about 1/3 of the gold available in the world. Even after his disappearance, the tales of his gold being stashed away in a remote island continue to persist, a juicy target that other pirates lust for.

One of the pirates going to great lengths to attain the treasure is El Drago. He and his crew have hunted down Woonan's former crew members one by one, and along the way, they find the map that will take them to the hidden island.

The map is not all they come across; they also manage to come into contact with the straw hat pirates. After a short battle, Luffy and company are robbed and separated from one another. Now they must find a way to make it to the island before El Drago does and take the legendary treasure for themselves.


One Piece (Movie) was aired in theaters as a double feature alongside Digimon Adventure: Bokura no War Game as part of Toei's Spring 2000 Anime fair.

Story: This OP movie is pretty basic, its a just a treasure hunt. Its pretty decent but nothing special.

Animation: Its just the basic one piece style.

Sound: Its very good, acoustic music done perfectly.

Character: Luffy, Zoro, Ussop, and Nami. Great characters and every thing that is in the show is in this movie.

Enjoyment: Decent enemeys and a story about pirates, how can this not be good.

Overall: Watch this if you like One Piece and haven\'t seen it yet

The first One Piece movie, I must say, is more like a set of combined episodes than a movie. It does has the "movie feel," in that you can see how the plot is going to move. You know, the gang runs across some seemingly unnecessary characters, whom later turn out to be important to the plot. They arrive at an island, explore a little, the villains show up. Nothing exciting, nothing surprising. The main enjoyment that I got out of this movie, was not the plot or the action, but the characters. Because let's face it, a huge part of what makes One Piece read more

This is the first One Piece movie, theoretically taking place after Usopp joins the crew and before Sanji is introduced. Just like all movies, it is a filler mission with a good budget and a simplistic plot. And indeed, the story is just about the Strawhat Pirates trying to find a great treasure before an evil pirate crew does. Why? Well, the adventure sounds like fun and there is a kid asking for their help, so how can their shounen hearts say no?

As simple as it all sounds though, I must say the premise is quite far fetched for the point in the storyline it read more

The first One Piece movie was a bit of a surprise. I went into it, expecting a basic, unremarkable side-story featuring the cast of the show. What I got instead was an entertaining pirate tale which stands on it's own as a movie and manages to be well written on top of that.

Characters: 8/10

The characters from the show are in top-form here, all bringing along their trademark personality quirks, and being written just as well as they are in the main series. The new characters that get introduced aren't quite as well written or well designed as the main cast, but they're no slouches, either. read more
