In the first movie installment of One Piece, we're told of a tale of Great Gold Pirate Woonan. A pirate who obtain 1/3 of the world's gold. Over the years, Woonan's existence has faded away. And a legend grew on his gold located on a remote island he settled on.
Luffy, Zoro, Usopp, and Nami got involved in the hunt for Woonan's treasure after meeting Tabio(a kid who admires Woonan) and a group of pirates lead by El Drago. El Drago is a tall Aztec Indian like man who's mad about gold. And wants every piece of Woonan's treasure.
As the hunt begins on the island, the Straw Hat Pirates must stop El Drago from stealing the treasure. But El Drago's crave for gold makes him dangerous to go up against.
Takes place between episodes 18 and 19. This movie is well thought up for being the first for the ever popular One Piece series. The animation and style are the same. And 51 minutes running long makes it feel like a double episode special.
Never a dull moment with the action, comedy, and character development used throughout the movie. A must see for those who like the anime. Only available on fan sub. Which is as easy to find on the internet as %0
