THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This special was quite nice. :P I like how they introduced the outfits for this special and they look very good, I only didn't like Luffy's one-piece outfit xD The upper part looked very good and it would have been a nice sweatshirt, but since it also had the lower part, it didn't look so good.

And is the guy from the navy really that stupid to randomly fire the cannon at the island? o.O He really deserved the one-handed elephant gattling in the end xD

Too bad that Luffy and Coby didn't meet, but I guess that is left for the movie or the tv episodes.

I think the special was actually really nice, can't wait for the movie <3

A great special, I loved the new flashbacks. Seeing some of the things that the anime left out was great.

I thought they changed Kizaru's VA for a minute.

9/10

I thought this was atrocious. I don't think they had any idea about what they were doing with this thing. I gave it a five for the Sanji and Coby stuff, and then one more point for ending it with Zoro staring blankly for five seconds. Everything else was a mess.

I think its great for OVA. Coby has become quite strong after time-skip, wonder when we will see him in the manga again. For a second there, I was almost convinced it was Kizaru when he speak since I have already expected it to be made of wax which turn out to be true in the end after all.
Sweet dreams are made of this

Coby has become really strong.
Sanji and Zoro being totally BA!!

But I didn't like how they made Luffy put some effort into beating that loser :(...well at least he kicked his ass in the end without any injury worth mentioning.

I actually really liked this special, especially i liked watching luffy's past memories with shanks with better art and quality ^^
And haha Zoro the cannonballs cutter 8D
The end was really funny when they almost forgot zoro and that "Oui." ... i laughed too much at this special o_o"

But it's really a shame that Coby and Luffy didn't meet at the end ;A; (And Coby~ <3 *Fangirling*)
Woah... It brings me such a nostalgic feeling listening to "WE ARE!" again.. :D

Now the only thing left is to watch One Piece film Z~ ^^

It was alright. I didn't really like Bilic that much, and they kinda made luffy look pretty weak compared to him, having to rely on such a simple tactic to defeat Bilic. But the comedy was great, The outfits looked pretty nice too! I loved the new Brooke outfit.. They should consider keeping that, since i still cant get used to his new world outfit. Zoro though, looked way too much like smoker in this Special.

Loved the flashbacks too, seeing The story of Shanks and Luffy Again made me shed a tear
And Coby turned into a badass! Cant wait to see more of him!

And ofcourse "We Are" always brings a huge grin to my face.

I don't know... I liked the original flashbacks better, BY FAR. They lost some of the charm (mainly OST), and Shanks was pretty mellow as opposed to his usual self.

However, I still had a lot of fun, it's still good old One Piece.

The definite highlight for me was when Luffy first saw all the legendary wax statues, I was left speechless at that part. Also, the story of the wax artist and his son wasn't so bad.

The outfits intro was nice, and I especially liked Nami's.

Zoro wrecking the cannon balls was probably my favourite scene, lol at the ending with him.

Oh yeah... Coby Taichou! He's pretty cool now too.

The credits at the end gave me watery eyes! One Piece!

The flashbacks had good animation and it was great to see classic One Piece with new animation although the first flashback took up so much time from this special...

But I still liked this and definitely enjoyed it. Sanji was amazing kicking that steel cage while underwater. Only he can do that, ahaha!

I also wasn't expecting Luffy's final battle against Bilic would be this great, especially when he was piloting Elizabeth which was more versatile and more nimble (obviously) than Josephine. But, well...I should have expected great things in One Piece specials from the start. It'll always be good with a satisfying conclusion. :P

I lol'd when Zoro was left behind in Hand Island. xD And all the Strawhats are wearing such cool outfits in this special!

Coby has become a Captain with Helmeppo as his subordinate! Coby sure has become incredibly strong here, which was really impressive! Surprisingly, Luffy never met Coby on the island even though Coby witnessed Luffy fight against Bilic.

Diego-san made a new wax statue at the end of the movie to add to his collection. :D

I still enjoyed it, therefore, I'm giving it a 9/10. Thank you!

Nice special.

It was quite cool how the story was sort of like the first arc where they met Zoro with the evil Marines.

Although I felt Luffy struggled a bit too much with the guy.. Coby seemed awesome though.

Great special! The fashion show was good and contrary to what many people think I personally liked Luffy's outfit.

Franky : "Perfect landing!"
Sanji : "What the fuck..."
Lmao

The 2 flashbacks gave me the chills, specially the first with Shanks, I looked like an idiot while I was watching with a big smile on my face.

Zoro and Sanji were badass, I liked the final fight too and damn, Coby is really strong now, is also official the fact that he finally learned how to use haki.

I loved the end with the old scenes. 9/10

I really disliked this special. I had very high expectations and I ended up being very disappointed. This OVA had a story on par with a filler plus the animation was not even good. I hate how most animated things related to Luffy under power him so much. Apparently Toei thinks he has to struggle against everything. I don't get it. Anyway, looking forward to Film Z. Putting my hopes in that.

This, pretty much. Easily the worst "episode of" I've seen so far; at least the other two weren't written by a six-year-old that makes Oda look like Umberto Eco in comparison. The flashback scenes were somewhat enjoyable, the rest went down the drain already with the fashion show scene. :\ Hopefully Film Z is better.

Special? Maybe movie? In any case it after a Strong World had to stop the release of something new, it is still all sad and some solid clowning gone. Is that a shortage of money, with the same kind of manga is a huge profit.

Ahh, this was a great special, but half way through, I was wondering if this was before or after the time skip, because Luffy has that scar on his chest like after the time skip, but Ussop's hair is short like before the time skip and he has his plant weapons, plus Robin's hair is also long. And also, the Navy said that Luffy had a bounty higher than 100,000,000. If it was before the time skip that would be the correct way to put it, but if it was after, they would have said he had a bounty of 400,000,000. Also, Luffy know's haki, and on that note, all of the crew can use the mores that learned during the time skip. Oh yeah, in the end, what happened to Zoro.

Coby was really badass.
But other than that, this special was boring... Also, how could anyone admire Kizaru? He's so lame...

2/5 for me

- The story was bad honestly, there was no creativity in it. "Oh my god a marine officer is abusing his power"
- The last fight with the vilain was stupid. Come on ... this guy is a total joke, he has no power nor haki and he is able to dodge luffy's blows easily with a crappy canon? Who wrote this?? Luffy has trained two years to have problems with a random guy like this?
- While I like the fact that he is now a captain and a quite powerful fighter, Coby doesn't react at all to the presence of the Mugiwaras. Though Coby is Luffy's friend, he made the promise tol consider him as a pirate and arrest him.

Much better everything than Punk Hazard.

And yes, Luffy has to struggle, as he is in New World now. This isn't a joke anymore.

Lol, Punk Hazard made by Oda had zero plot, compared to this.

Aokiji and Akainu have been mentioned, but so far we have no clue what happened to Kizaru. Maybe Cobys ignoring the question is hinting something?

I've always liked the little references and flashbacks they have in the movies, The wax figures were pretty cool but i'm pretty sure I saw Noland - he died 400yrs ago, how did the wax guy meet him?

Finally Luffy getting his scar is animated. Coby seems pretty strong now.

Sanjis kicks were well animated

Nice special here, surprised they decided to alter Luffy's past and his meeting with Coby a bit

The fashion show at the start was hilarious and fun to watch. Chopper was in PJs!

Agreed, Sanji's kicking was nicely animated in this one

A nice story with some good new characters, a dickhead villan (as usual in this series), and just good ole times with the crew!

Aww, I liked this one...even though Bilic was an awful and extremely annoying villain. I mean, that fight made absolutely no sense, what with Luffy having a bit of a hard time against such a weak Commodore given how strong he is. But, hey it's a fun little special so I can forgive it!

Everything else was great though!
We got a more fleshed out Shanks flashback, a well needed Coby flashback- finally- and more Coby in general!
Glad to see him as a Captain and that he's gotten so much stronger and cuter

Tbh this really felt like a pre-timeskip mini arc...I mean back in the East Blue Saga when the crew used to have those hilarious little in-between arcs. Had me all nostalgic ^^

+1 for that wonderful fashion show at the beginning, as well as the hilarious Zoro scene at the end XD

+100 for Sanji's glam outfit and gorgeously animation kicks.

tfw when you don't know if Kizaru's a wax statue or if Toei just got lazy lol

It was a very good special episode to me. The flashbacks bring the nostalgia, made me sad but happy at the same time. Glad to see Shanks & crew and Coby.. they are really nice characters. The main story wasn't bad, though the art & animation looked bad at times (even worse than TV version). I feel bad for Zoro though.. looks like he must live at that island for some time xD
