    One Piece Anime's 2-Hour Nami Special to Air in August

    Quote Quote:
    Toei Animation announced on Monday that an all-new television anime special, One Piece Episode of Nami: Kōkaishi no Namida to Nakama no Kizuna (One Piece Episode of Nami: Tears of a Navigator and the Bonds of Friends), will air on Saturday, August 25 at 9:00 p.m. (The One Piece television anime series normally airs on Sunday mornings.)

    The story segment about Nami's home village, which figures heavily in the One Piece television anime's ongoing Fishman Island arc, is recreated with all-new animation. Nami steals the Merry Go (Going Merry) pirate ship from Monkey D. Luffy and the rest of her shipmates and seemingly abandons them. Luffy and the others give chase and eventually track Nami to Cocoyasi Village (Coco Village).

    Hirohiko Uesaka, the head writer of the television anime, is credited with the special's script, while the television anime's animation director Yukiko Nakatani designed the characters on the special.

    Why wasting money for a 2hour nami-special ? I would recreate the whole anime from the beginning with all new-Animation just like "FMA Brotherhood"^^

    TemplateR, i totally agree with you.
    Toei never stop to amaze me in their stupidity. They give us a garbage "One Piece Special Edition", a shitty current serie, and yet they can waste money in things like this.

    I only hope, that it'll be a quality readaptation that we can truly enjoy.

    Don't worry. This "movie" is probably gonna be a kind of a remake of Arlong arc, like the movie 9th "Episode of Chopper plus". At least I'm sure that it's not as same as garbage special editions ever broadcasted. The directors, Tokoro and Nakatani, have much greater skill than the other regular anime staff. They have never disapointed us. This move is promising.

    It's better to spend budged on the big moments/arcs of the series than reproducing the whole series in 720p/16:9. The Arlong Arc was the best part of the East Blue saga, so I'm happy to see those instead of some random filler specials like before.

    You can watch a bit part of the movie. The drawings look great as I expected.

    Except that your so-called quality re-adaptation will probably cost them a bomb and lead to them lowering their current standards(if it's not terrible already).
    By your logic, Pierrot must be full of idiots.
    Toei is nowhere near stupid. This new special is meant to coincide with the one piece 720p re-airing and fishman island. Not to mention the fact that Arlong Park was the greatest arc in the entire east blue saga. It's not a waste of money and it's better than nothing. Really looking forward to it

    wow at the video I knew that famous voiceactors are little stars in Japan but I certainly didnt expect Luffy to be spoken by a middle aged woman! Awesome she's so cute and it's amazing to hear their character voice outside of the anime^^

    It should be a nice watch, it'll be nice seeing the fights in updated animation and lets of course not forget, the walk to arlong park. If anything, to NOT fuck up the walk!

    I don't see the point of wasting the money on this, they better get their shit together and animate FI correctly instead of wasting here... Or maybe they could remake Marinford arc

    But oh well, OP anime was always bad if I compare it with Bleach... Seems like Bleach got a lot of love from the animation team and epic moments were always well drawn

    This is not a discussion about how Pierrot fairs compared to Toei.

    You not seeing the point doesn't make it less reasonable. It's part of the rerun, which has as far as I recall pretty high numbers of spectators. It's one of the most loved ones, so no wasted money. Redoing FI, while it's still done? Huge waste of money, which only a small part would enjoy, because the arc is nowhere in the top list of fans.

    I didn't say redoing FI, I say to animate it correctly. The Arlong is done, finished already years and years ago, no need to do it again. I'm against remaking anything as I'd rather see them using that money to make the current arc and future arcs better. Besides, if it is only about huge number of spectators, they should remake the war as they completely killed it

    Also, it doesn't sound reasonable to me anyway

    Re: One Piece Anime's 2-Hour Nami Special to Air in August

    Those long running series are not lucrative, let's exclude that the number of fans may make it so, but why would they feel the need to remake something that is nowhere near being broadcasted again? DVD's are out.

    This a new product with a differetnt budget than the normal series, also the rest of the series doesn't get the DBZ Kai treatment. However we know which arc was liked and which was not[IIRC you being one of those]. They may decide to remake the war arc or parts of it, to make it as fluid as the last episodes of Bleach, but that's still far in the future.

    I'm all for stopping with the remakes and putting the money into new original projects.

    Unfortunately, I can't watch the movie - not even with Proxtube.

    But well. I hope either Zero-Raws or Leopard-Raws are recording it.
