Back on Saturday, Fuji TV aired the latest One Piece movie - "Strong World". According to the One Piece Wiki, Strong World had a Dec. 2009, theatrical premiere, but the really big promotional push seems to have been during the summer when the DVD came out.
Initially, I avoided paying attention to One Piece because I thought the story was silly, and I didn't care for the character designs. I had seen a few of the early episodes of the TV anime in Austin, Texas, when the owner of a Mexican coffee shop would play them for his occasional Anime Night Mondays. It wasn't until this Fall, when I had yet another student tell me that his favorite anime was One Piece that I sat down and read the 594 (at the time) chapters of the manga. When I was finished, I had to admit that the story gets pretty overwhelming at times, and there is a lot of imagination at work. So I made sure to record Strong World when it aired, and finished watching it the following night after I got back from work at midnight.
If you've seen it, I won't bore you with the details. If you haven't yet but plan to, then you're going to like this one. If you have no interest in One Piece, then I suggest you read over the above Wiki description and try checking it out anyway. The artwork's great, the action is off the wall, and the entire film is one long roller coaster ride. Three thumbs up.
