Hmm, more than 400 episodes (including Impel Down so far) streamlined into 30 minutes of OVA. Some scene cuts were plain awkward. Quite good though. I found it far more enjoyable than watching current slow paced and uninteresting arc.

Well I watched it very quick so I´ll watch it more calmed down in a few days, is a good recap I was hoping more scenes and a little longer, the merry funeral still maks me cry, also nico robin in ennies lobby T_T

They told the most important moments from every season doesn´t go so deep and i was hoping that but well not bad after all

I'm uploading the spanisch subs to youtube, for the ones who want to watch it online.
The ova was OK I guess, the most important moments are shown, and that's still fun to watch. I think it's pretty amazing that they actually made a 30 minutes ova out of 400 episodes XD

He appeared in one scene, like for 1sec. I think it was during sanji's fight.

I just watched it, on youtube. Spanish subs. I don't think it was that great since it could be way better, but was enough to make me cry and i surely loved it.

As a recap, this was just wrongly done. Not only because it gave Luffy even more protagonism than the series actually does (it is sort of annoying that almost any scene has to include him), but the introduction of Vivi or the whole Usopp-Sogeking incident, which are VERY important to understand what happens in the arcs that are being described, were absurdly cut. And don't make me start with the depiction of the emotional moments. Just because they have to condense them doesn't mean that they have to be so sloppily inserted. Or the Thriller Bark part, I missed a lot of relevant stuff regarding the events happening. Or the fact that they include some filler arcs and ignore others.

Uh. 2/5.

He did appear in the Impel Down part...

Man the first part was hard to watch... since I re-watched the first 200 episodes multiple times.

This was a good recap though, but not enjoyable for me.

Rather decent recap - it would be a better idea to make more of them, like 1 episode for 1 arc or something.

A lot episodes for 30min. It was good but they dont show us some good scenes and everything go little too fast.
