Storyline

Luffy, Zoro, & Nami are drifting on their boat without any food to eat. Right until a sea dragon attacked their boat and took Nami away. Luffy & Zoro washed up on shore on a small island. Where they encounter a girl named Medaka. Who tells them, that her island has been taken over by Pirate Ganzack and his crew. Ganzack has enslaved all the men on the island, including Medaka's father. And she'll do any necessary task to save him. To make matters worst, the food on the island is scarce. Which makes Luffy disappointed, but learns that if Ganzack is defeated, he can have more food. So he, Zoro, & Medaka infiltrate Ganzack's base to free the prisoners, find Nami, and defeat Ganzack.

First & Earliest Animation of One Piece.
19 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unlike the TV series we all know are enjoy. This direct to home video release is how you would say different. Made by Production I.G.(The makers of Ghost in the Shell) and containing an entirely original plot.

The story starts with Luffy, Zoro, & Nami drifting on their boat. With no a crumb of food to eat. Right until a sea dragon appeared and attacked the boat and took Nami away. Zoro & Luffy wake up on the beach of a small island. Where they discover that the locals of the island are all prisoners of a pirate who's seen as a crab according to Luffy. In order to the free the island's imprisonment and save Nami, Luffy will have to defeat the a whole pirate crew. But he's only doing it, so he can have a bite to eat.

With different animation, music, and voice acting. This one feels like watching a pilot episode to the series. I wouldn't say it fits perfectly into the storyline. But despite it's differences, it's a worthy OVA. It was only a year before Toei Animation started their version of One Piece.

Worth checking out, as it's currently the only OVA of One Piece.
