The crew comes upon Crown Island where the animals can talk and they makes Chopper their new king. But there are human hunters there also looking for the legendary horns that will give the person who consumes it immense power. Luffy and friends must stop them from destroying this animal kingdom.
I know that only few people will read this, as One Piece is one of those shows a lot of anime watchers refuse to watch due to its length but here I go anyway. However, the movie is just 55 minutes long and you can watch it if you have seen/read at least until Drum Island arc, when Tony Tony Chopper joins the crew.
In this review I will talk about One Piece 3rd movie and first of all, I have to say that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE One Piece, but this film just pissed me off. This morning I decided to watch the first OP film
and I enjoyed it a lot, so I binged two more. I just hope it doesnt keep getting worse, as I plan to watch them all.
So the movie starts the same way the other two did: The mujiwaras go after a treasure (what?) and they end up helping the good people defeating the bad guys. I have zero complainments about that, its a long running shonen movie so I didnt expect Toei to surprise me in that aspect. Then, why am I that triggered if I didnt expect anything from Toei? Well, lets talk about it.
The film's MC is supposed to be Chopper, as he is isolated from the crew and he is proclaimed as the king of the animal island. Then, why does he end up in a second place? Does every OP story arc - or movie - need the monster trio to have a fight?
Toei missed a great opportunity to develop Chopper and they didnt take advantage of it. But if you think a little bit about it... Chopper DID receive a development in this movie but, does it make sense?
In Drum Island, we meet Tony Tony Chopper, a timid reindeer with self-esteem issues, that keep being a coward until Arabasta arc, when he gets developed after watching Ussop suffering. So, if this film takes place after Drum Island (remember that this arc is part of the Arabasta saga, but occurs before the Arabasta arc) why does he overcome his personal problems dealing with the villains? It just doesnt make sense in the OP timeline (well, only few things in this series does make sense).
I love Chopper, but if you are going to let him behind after putting his name in the fucking title and you wont respect the canon timeline, I dont want him to be the "protagonist". Just fuck you Toei.
Early OP villains arent the best of the show, but the enemies of the movies are just pathetic. First movie had a nice story and it was related to some canon characters like Woonan and second one at least had some good characters as Borodo. But if you dont have a good story nor charismatic characters, the TRASH villains take more and more importance. Dude just give the guy the violin violin no mi so, at least, he doesnt rely on improvised power-ups.
As I already said, this movie does not have good characters. You have the mujiwaras, your typical OP child with a sad backstory, 2 weird animals that can talk and 3 sad villains. The rest are just animals that doesnt even talk. Trash out of 10 for the characters.
The first thing I noticed when I started this film was: why the fuck are the strawhats shining? are they using lotions now? The art style is so bad it made me cringe for the 10 first minutes of the movie. About the OST, I cant deny that OP soundtrack is amazing, but as a guy that has seen this show twice and that listens to it while studying I can say Im a little bit bored of some pieces.
In conclussion, this is the worst of the 3 first OP movies and I cant believe that something will be worse than this piece of shit. Hey, at least it was funny, they made strawhats interactions believable.
As always, I find myself losing time in MAL in exam time, I hope that some of you made it to the end. Peace!
One Piece: Chopper Kingdom of Strange Animal Island is like watching an extended episode of the One Piece and that's why it's a worth the watch. In truth fans of One Piece will get a bigger kick out of watching this then people who aren't familiar with the anime, it's more or less made for them. The story in the film is typical One Piece affair with one thing unexpected happening, resulting in the crew trying to resolve the situation while something else happens that will interlock with the main plot and then the situation is sorted through the power of courage and friendship.
was just like watching the series except with a higher degree of animation and it is the quality of animation that makes the film shine. One Piece episodes around the time of 2002 looked okay but the movie quality allows for some really smooth character animation and richer colours for backgrounds which really adds to the overall experience. The characters in the film are just as good as they are in the series and in terms of sound and music they happen to be in good supply too. Overall I really liked the film just because it was One Piece in a higher quality animation; it's definitely worth the watch if you can't get enough of the One Piece adventures.
This is the third One Piece movie, theoretically taking place after Chopper joins the crew and before they go to Arabasta. They messed up the crew roster though; there should be Vivi in there too but they chose not to add her. Probably because she was so useless, lol. Just like all movies, it is a filler mission with a good budget and a simplistic plot. The story is just about the Strawhat Pirates getting to an island full of weird animals, were poachers are looking for some magical horns that will make them powerful and a token kid asks them to help out.
by far the most unimpressive premise of all the movies since there is absolutely nothing grand scaled going on here. Ok, supposed the bad guy is going to be super powerful if he finds the horns but even after he succeeds he is nothing before Luffy’s plot armour. Just imagine that although Oda takes ideas from these movies into the canon story later on, there was anything worth to tribute here, since everything is so damn simple in terms of themes. There are many islands with jungles and weird monsters in canon anyway.
In reality the whole movie is dedicated to the latest addition to the crew, Chopper (and his voice actress). It even tries to build a sort of drama around his personality where he finds a place to call home. There are many animals like himself there and he had the chance to leave the crew and stay there for a happy life. Ok, it is clear that he won’t in the end but supposed the drama is there to make us feel sad or something.
As unimpressive as the premise may be, the artwork makes up for it somehow by being extremely detailed and weird. I mean, damn, there are so many colours and weird animals in here to give you a seizure. The screen is constantly filled with a hundred things to look at and there is even a weird orchestra of villains that mesmerize you with their song. It all feels very quirky for a shounen adventure and I guess that is what makes this movie eye-catchy but otherwise boring for most of the target audience. The action is after all closer to crazy than cool and personally I didn’t like them at all. And the monsters felt like ugly aliens so I almost ended up hated them. So in all, it is not just another passable movie but also something you will most likely dislike in overall.
Oh and don’t miss the special short that comes with the movie. “Soccer King of Dreams” may only be 5 minutes long but has some really good jokes in it.
And now for some excused scorings.

This review does not contain any spoiler, so feel free to read it.
Let's talk about "One Piece: Chinjuujima no Chopper Oukoku", the third One Piece's movie.
This movie is like the first two movies, it only lasts barely one hour. And to be honest, it was enough...
This movie, released in 2002, is centered on Chopper which became the new king of a kingdom that is just an island filled with animals (well, except a living human among them).
The story is very basic, and suffers from an unattractive scenario that will never seduce us.
The overall humor of the movie is troublesome, and the actions performed by
the protagonists are constantly meaningless.
I've never been a fan of the art in one piece, in general, and this movie is not an exception.
It's colourful, animals are poorly drawn, and wicked people in this movie are pathetically ugly and without charisma
Best thing of the movie. Nothing special, nothing notable.
Nevertheless, I can not deny that music in general , in this movie, liberates a very nice nostalgic feeling, which make me think of an pleasant 80's OST!
(I do not talk about One Piece's character in general, but only about those who appear in this movie.)
They are all PATHETIC.
Mobambi, the main character in this film is annoying as f... and his story is just ridiculous. We don't care about him, and we'll never be.
Beside, we don't care about animals, because they're not talking, and because they are useless.
Furthermore, the wicked.... any charisma, useless, as weak as an atrophied cow.... I just want to forget them.
This movie is annoying, frustrating, boring...
I never managed to get into it , and the time seemed interminable .
"One Piece: Chinjuujima no Chopper Oukoku" is a bad One Piece movie, and a very very very bad movie in general.
Even if you want to watch every One Piece movies, I DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU TO WATCH IT. You'll waste your time, with an hideous way...
