The Straw Hat crew salvages a treasure chest from a sinking wreck, inside which they find an old lady. To get the pirates to take her home, she promises them the treasure of a golden crown on her island: Mecha Island. Upon arrival, the crew is attacked by the lord of the island but he has a change of heart and decides to seek their help to solve the mystery of the Golden Crown.
Not the most amazing storyline for a One Piece movie ever. I mean, after all, it is essentially just a treasure hunt, which is pretty exciting, but something that isn't too uncommon. It has some pretty good twists and comedy though, as usual with One Piece, which is good.
The art really is, of course, just the same as the regular One Piece series's artwork. I know some people say One Piece's art is just horrendous, but personally, I just think that those individuals aren't very open minded, and that, in fact, One Piece's art is actually quite unique, and unlike many others. So the quality of the art just lies in personal opinion I think.
One Piece has some of the greatest music and sounds in all of anime. This movie lives up to the reputation. Simple as that.
If you're a One Piece fan I'm sure you'd agree that the series's cast is just phenomenal. But this is about the movie. So, putting the main characters aside, this movie features a style of One Piece characters that make it the great show it is. An old baasan who's like 2 feet tall that's stuck in a treasure chest, a foolish, yet apparently genius, central enemy who is destined to rule the world, and two of his loyal henchmen who sport afros and mohawk things. Character has always been one of One Piece's great points, and that stands true is this film.
I would not say that this is the number one best One Piece movie that's been made, however it definitely is still good and absolutely wroth the watch. Perfect way to see a nice side story while waiting for the next episode to be released. It doesn't feel like you're watching a stupid filler either while watching this movie, if you're perhaps worried of that. Overall, definitely give it a watch, chances are you'll enjoy it.read more
One Piece Movie 7: Karakurijou no Mecha Kyohei Review
Story (5/10) Average
More Specifically (5.50/10) Average+
The story for the 7th movie is weirdly average it started off weird and random and the for entire movie it was just the Star Hat Crew messing around on this Island trying to figure out if there is a treasure that exist on this Island. It's really empty when it comes to substance and it is what it is and it is average it had a couple cool scenes and I'll some credit to them and talk about them later but yeah it's an average movie story but this is is indeed a little less on the substance when it comes it.
Art and Animation (7/10) Good
The art style and animation was good, still not movie quality because as far as my research tells me these movie were still coming out annually so as far as seeing something we have never seen before it's still not quite present. The coolest thing animation wise was at the very end of the movie when Luffy did that spinning kick move cutting through the mechanical device on top of the turtle, but other than that everything was was just good and reasonable. Oh and another thing why was there so much focus on Nami's breast in the movie? I decided to count how many times the animators went out of their way to make her tits jiggle just for the sake of jiggling and capped at 12 times. Yeah it's nice but it was indeed random because yeah we do see it in the actual anime but honestly it's rare. The most we get are just camera angles of her body (which they did in this movie also) but man like I said it felt like it was borderline Fairy Tail level and it's also weird they did it for Nami anytime she moved but not once for Robin who's body is basically identical to hers. No clue I guess the animators had a thing for Nami this time around.
Sound (7/10) Good
Sound was good nothing amazing nothing horrible.
Characters (7/10) Good
The Straw Hat Crew was present for majority of the movie doing their thing nothing too entertaining this time around just same old crew (I'm ready for Franky and Brook honestly).
Enjoyment (6/10) Fine
My enjoyment for the movie was fair. It didn't feel like the movie really go anywhere. Honestly it just felt unnecessary nothing except the ending felt like it was worth keeping my eyes open because I was indeed dozing off by the time the movie reached the hour mark.
Overall (6/10) Fine
More Specifically (6.50/10) Fine+
I thought with this movie having some sort of "Mech" theme going on that I would see something rather cool (like Franky cool) but nothing really worth it in this movie honestly the Straw Hat Crew destroy them with ease and even though the movie should have been over in a flash since the enemies could give them a decent challenge with dragged on for and hour and a half can't give this one a 7 but I do think this movie is around the 6 status.read more
It was your typical filler movie but one thing that really bothered me was the emphasis on nami's "assets". Seriously, every time she moved anywhere,even if it was a slight move, there was the 'jiggle'.
After watching the movie I must say that one thing sets it apart from the previous ones and that's Nami's breasts. They were bouncing around and jiggling, making it very hard to concentrate on reading the subtitles XD
Combined with a great animation, it was quite an enjoyable experience.
The story was okay, nothing special. If you liked the previous movies you'll like this one too.
