Man this is really why I think Arlong was such a badass villain in the One Piece universe, he was just so brutal. I really like the way they redid the fight scenes, alot more fast paced and pretty too look at with the great visuals and animation. Got to say for an HD remake, this did not dissappoint. 9/10 for me

This was really, really well done. The only thing I would add is the scene at the end of the arc when Nami is in her old house, saying goodbye. The part where Bellemere pushes her out the door was soooo touching

What a great story!! It was very good to remember old good episodes. This and Arabasta are my favourite arcs, I'm glad to be able to see those sad scenes in HD.

I watched an anime RAW for the first time, and I'm proud I understood everything. Watching anime is a great way to learn Japanese.
Also Japanese commercials were very funny to watch.^^

The only minus was the few funny scenes that were cut, but it can't be helped in a retelling. Other than that, perfect. 9/10.

LOL on the repetitive Ussop Hammer use. I've watched the anime TV broadcast of this a loong time ago I forgot the details of it all. In the TV series, I remembered Nami or somebody pulled Luffy's head and stretched his neck out of the water so he won't drown or something. Ah well, I'm getting senile.

8/10 for juggling my memories again. XD

I put this one off for a while. Did I really want to bother re-watching the Arlong arc again? I know the story well enough and it wasn't really a favourite of mine.. But I finally decided to watch it if for nothing else the new animation, which was very nice.

But despite not expecting much, I enjoyed this far more than I expected. Whereas I have just watched the new fish man arc and have already watched the original Arlong arc, I found them both ok, but a bit slow and dragged out overall.

This special however was obviously much shorter and this made it for me at least very enjoyable. All the emotional parts of the arc were brought out perfectly and I never realised how touching Nami's story really was before watching this. Although the majority of the action took place in the last 30 minutes and usually I am just eagerly waiting for the action, I liked it like this is this special and just really enjoyed the story, it brought out all the emotion and summarized perfectly exactly what Nami went through and made you realize how she must be thinking visiting the fish man island and meeting Hordy.

Just watched it yesterday and man was this awesome! I've seen the arlong arc about 3 times now and this one did not dissapoint. The new animations were superb, and it was allot more violent too, like Bell-mère's death. Really loved seeing this arc again. Hopefully they'l do a skypiea arc too... After Arlong, that was probably one of my most favorites.

When this was aired in Japan, did they even show the crew after the time skip? Just wondering. I'm guessing the manga did, but what about the anime?

Awesome Dejavu I had there. And Nami's past and her determination still made me tear up, really really good!!

And DAT epic OST when the 4 of them where walking to the park gives me goosebumps every time.

Also the scene where Nami stabs her self and asks Luffy for Help is so emotional. Really great special :D

Amazing! Great! Awesome! Quite a few things missing but the fights were way better, especially Zoro's Tatsumaki and Sanji's fight. Dam thing made me tear up again T_T

8.8/10 = 9

Beautiful.... this rekindled my love for One piece! East Blue was ALWAYS my favourite, and as much as I love the entire crew and continuation, I say it was the most balanced when it was only these original 5. (That said, I can't imagine the story without the rest)

This movie is a perfect intro for all the sorry people missing out on One Piece, due to it's length/early series art, having no patience, or just plain ignorance.

A biased 10/10! One Piece is truly magical... :)

The tears were shed, not only Nami's if you know what I mean. Very good special, the only thing that bugged me was the Walk to the Arlong Park and Nami's stabbing herself - it was far more emotional in the original series. 9/10 from me.

The Arlong Park arc was one of my favorite One Piece arcs. This TV special did as good of a job as the tv episodes.

I know that this is Luffy's,Zoro's character, but not wanting to learn about Nami's past ... that bothers me a bit ... and i also can't remember if it went like that in the anime too... ( too lazy to check )

The action looked awesome in this special!
I'm glad they skipped the part where they throw Luffy into the water, it was boring.
Also, did anyone notice Zoro's "enemy" from the current arc(gyojin island, the one with a bulb on his head) in Arlong's crew?

Such a great special, if only the normal anime would have this kind of quality!

This was definitely one of my favourite arcs and it was really great to see this witth the new animation, and that redo of We Are at the end was really great too

8/10, although I didn't like Belle reasoning for letting herself get killed, that kinda ruinned an otherwise great story for me.

Having just read this part of the manga, this was a real nice watch

This movie was great! The first time I got interested in the One Piece series was the Pirate Warriors game that covered the beginning until the time-skip. This was actually my first exposure to the anime franchise and I'm looking forward to taking on the main series very soon.

The fight scenes were superb and I was surprised at how graphically painful their injuries actually are. Nami won't give her arm a break lol. The emotions I got from Bellemere's death and Nami's eventual freedom from Arlong were very intense ;~;

The comedy scenes especially with Usopp's hammering were hilarious xD I wish that I could've spent my childhood watching and growing along with the Straw Hats.
