Storyline

It was another peaceful day on board the Going Merry. Nami yelled at Luffy for whizzing in the ocean. As it'll just contaminate the fish that are swimming. Luffy was on fishing duty, but he was using sponges for bait, which he sees them to look like hamburgers. Nami couldn't believe how naive Luffy is, until he caught something big, that it dragged the ship backwards instead of forwards. The fishing line ended up at a rocky crater with a chest being chained to it. Luffy was disappointed that it wasn't something to eat. But Nami was more interested in finding out what's inside the chest. She opened it only to find just a skull inside. Usopp read the back of the skull, which engraves about a treasure that can make anyone's dream come true. It lies deep in the ocean's naval. Then a large hole began to form near the crater they crashed into. So Usopp, Nami, and Sanji prepared themselves in a diving barrel to explore the cavity in the sea. Luffy was put in charge of the rope crank. It was ... Written by J LeGault

The first TV special of the successful One Piece.
9 March 2007 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

This is the first TV special of everyone's favorite pirate Anime. Aired after the Loguetown Episodes.

The story talks about a group of pirates lead by Captain Joke, who invaded a place called the Ocean's Naval. They trespassed in an ancient temple that holds a gem that is said to grant any person on what they desire. Unforchanitely Captain Joke's crew abandoned him and went to claim the gem. But when they got close to the gem, it awaken the 4 guardian monsters of the temple. And since then the Ocean's Navel has been over run by the monsters since then.

10 years later on board the Going Merry, Nami was yelling at Luffy for not fishing right. Right until something was caught on the fishing line, which drew the ship to a large rock in the middle of the ocean. Nami went to check what it was. It was a chest which contained nothing but a skull, which had writing on it about the Naval Gem. After opening the chest, a large hole began to appear in the middle of the ocean next to the rock isle. So our heroes decide to journey on down to search for this gem that Captain Joke tried to steal. Only to discover that the Ocean's Naval is a wet and scarce place with the 4 aquatic monsters roaming the place with all the locals hiding in fear. As well as a laughing talking bat who gives out info on what they must down in order to get the gem. Will they be able to defeat the guardian monsters and restore peace to the naval itself? Like the first movie, it's more like watching a 2 parter episode. Contains a good use of CG animation and some humorous scenes to lighten up the story. If it were longer, there probably would of been more to tell about some of the side stories mentioned in this 50 minute TV special.

But nothing gets better than the laughing bat.

Overall, it's pretty cool for the first TV special. I'm sure other One Piece fans will like this one. Only available in easy to find fan subs.
