Luffy and crew go to an island searching for a legendary sword, said to be the most expensive in the world. Soon attacking marines and beautiful maidens split the crew. Zoro betrays the crew to help an old friend, Luffy and Usopp wander through a cave, and the rest help a village fight marines. When Zoro defeats Sanji he takes the sacred pearls that are the only defense against the evil sword that will plunge the world into darkness.

I agree with one reviewer that it does seem to be a movie with one piece characters written into it. With that being said, I thought it was a good movie! You had some memorable characters, Saga & Maya, & Esp the Old Lady she was great.

You get met with a few inconsistencies (as per usual) for the canon. The ones that I noticed include them saying they came there to find the treasure. You can't just head to islands unless you get an eternal pose, so saying they came there for the treasure doesn't make any sense. They did this in the third ...

As the rating suggests, this one was... fine. I'd even say good, overall. It just wasn't particularly moving or fun. It's a pretty standard standalone movie plot.

(Though their description of Saga just "drifting" along the Grand Line until he reached this village after seeing just how hard it is to enter and navigate grated on my mind a bit...)

Unfortunately, this entry is guilty of one of my all-time least favorite standalone movie tropes... The villain being an old never-before-mentioned childhood friend of one of the protagonists. Thus explaining away any motivations said protag might need ...

Well, that was a semi-fun movie. It had a decent premise going for it but missed a ton of marks.

Story/Plot - 3 - It's premise is decent, albeit cliche. It was relatively interesting and had plenty of potential, however, I feel like it was wasted. The first problem being the way it was presented, and how the whole thing started off. Zoro just flat out betrays his crew at the beginning... that's bullshit! Especially considering how deeply he cares for his friends! Talk about awful character writing! I found it dumb how Zoro didn't get the slightest clue that Saga had ill intentions until the ...
