With One Piece Film Z right around the corner this holiday season, Toei is ramping things up with a new One Piece special. This time around, the focus is on Luffy in this tie-in that supposedly leads into the new film. That makes a lot of sense considering it's set to air the same day that the film hits theaters, December 15.
Like with the film itself, One Piece scribe Eichiro Oda supervised the story and production of Hand Island Adventure (Hand Island no Boken). I would have loved to see him take a more hands on role as in Strong World, but we can't have everything, right?
Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think. I'll be catching the film on opening day, so stay tuned for a full review when the time comes.
