So pretty much I thought it'd be a good idea that we talked about everything that happened in the latest One Piece special . I was very surprised nobody brought it up really so here it goes:
- From fights
- New characters
- Older enemies
- The new animation
- And of course Luffy
Let the fun BEGIN !!!
I haven't see it, so I don't really know what it is about (tho I think its about Luffy's 2 years of training) - I'm not following anime version
it is stated tv special but is it anime or separated from anime episode? or a movie?
I don't find any video, could you put a link in your post please, I'm getting very interested !
Here: link One Piece 3D2Y
I also have this link: http://kissanime.com/Anime/One-Piece...Speed?id=79900
It's probably the best version up . Awesome website .
Good call on making a thread.
In terms of Haki use, did anybody else notice the Cipher Pol agent who looked awesomely detailed in terms facial features, managed to combine Finger Pistol with Haki to defeat Byrrndi World?
I don't think we've seen that in the series before until then.
More importantly, in the manga the strongest Cipher Pol unit in Paradise which was CP9 weren't even able to use Haki.
And we know at least CP5-9 were in Paradise.
So the Cipher Pol officers who snuck on to World's ship were obviously from a CP unit that can use Haki which means possibly CP0?
Personally, I felt Hancock got kind of wasted in this special. Her 'fight' with that ugly old lady was just... shameful. Do we finally have a powerful female fighter who's strength is respected by even Sengoku, her first one-on-one fight in the series is shameless fanservice. So dissapointing.
But that aside, it was interesting to get a glimpse of what happened during the two year timeskip.
There's720p version on torrent. Movie is great. I could say that this movie is best so far.
Lot of action. All big names are there.

Even without the fan service she had a pretty good fight, we seen her use ability slightly different then the anime .
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing and I believe world had a really cool fruit too so it was a 10/10 for me.
As for CP0, from the moment one of them was shown to be a member of the Long Leg tribe, we can be certain Oda is pulling out all the stops and making CP0 a unit filled with genuine original characters.
I haven't watch the movie yet but has a little glimpse at the beginning first few minutes in which it has a recap of Law and Luffy's childhood and their dreams.
I think I'll watch it tomorrow or weekends since it is like almost 1 hr 50 mins show. But I must say it looks great. Hmmm... perhaps the discussion here will give me an "insight" of what the story is like. hahaha!
It was decent enough, long as hell.
I disliked how they treated Boa. She was kinda ineffective in everything she did. She mowed through fodder and the cube guy, but when she fought the fishman she had trouble. Like, shouldn't she have been able to sense where he was through haki? Seems like she barely used it. Also, I didn't like her fight with the old lady. Not because of the fanservice, but because she just stood around instead of going toe to toe with the old woman. Just because her ranged fruit abilities didn't work, doesn't mean she couldn't have kicked into her ass like she does with everyone else.
I don't like that being the origin of Red Hawk. If it was so in the moment, why the hell does Luffy already have a name for it?
Why didn't World kidnap Luffy as well as Boa's sisters? She showed more concern for him than them. That would've been the move World.
If World attacked several World Nobles, why would the Government send out Shichibukai instead of the Admirals? At first I assumed it was because they were rebuilding, but then Akainu went ahead and left to confront World...wat? Why were you sitting on your ass before then? What were you waiting for Akainu. I guess he switched from Absolute Justice to Lazy Justice.
Deus Ex Mihawk. Self explanatory.
And Perona. Why the hell was she even there? I highly doubt Mihawk would want her on his solo trip.
Rayleigh just chillin' on the damn island with all this going on. The hell man? Don't you think you should help out?
I enjoyed the story for what it was. I am personally considering it non-canon for various reasons, but the story was nice, especially the character of World. He had some pretty good depth and I enjoyed his relationship with his crew. He was totally scarred when they left him and couldn't get over it. They definitely cared for him though. His brother was also a very good character. I liked their back story. The rest of the crew were kinda generic in terms of design, but their characterization was pretty cool.
Animation and fights were very good. High quality.
Fan service was mighty nice. The people that animated the females definitely had certain assets in priority.
All in all, it was a good watch.

Yeah I didn't like him having a new before using it either , especially afterward he said "Ace Flare," like he noticed that afterwards but had a new for it before hand ? It's was great animation although .
Another thing I didn't agree with . But I think World left Luffy so he could tell Boa about his her sister got kidnapped .
Hawkeyes and Perona was just extra needless characters tbh . But Perona floats so she could follow him no matter what .
Rayleigh I guess would be too powerful . He would single handle destroy World and his crew . Also Rayleigh took everything that happened as training for Luffy in the long run .
I love World myself but I don't like his crew . Why betray your captain ? Is that love to built a ship instead of trying the impossible and breaking in a impel Down ? Also all them pirates are elderly why can't they use Haki ?
The "betrayal" as it were, was understandable in my opinion. World's brother was the cautious and logical one. We could see it in the flashback that he weighed the options and went with the one that benefited everyone, which was to flee. It wasn't fair to World, true, but it was the call he made to protect the crew. Besides, it was quite obvious that World was the only one in the crew that actually had any type of power. Everyone else was far from his strength. If they stayed they would've been fighting a losing battle. Breaking into Impel Down is a no go. Luffy is the only one to have done that and most likely will remain the only one. BoJack most likely wouldn't even consider that course of action seeing how cautious he is. Besides, why risk the freedom they cherished so much on a suicide run? They obviously believed that their Captain would return as they continued building the ship. I don't know about the Haki. Kinda strange that they didn't know it.
