One peaceful day, Luffy and his crew happen upon an old treasure chest which holds a skull with a message: ‘Plunge into the Ocean’s navel; therein lies the secret to making your dreams come true…’ Intrigued by the note, Nami, Sanji and Usopp are lowered into the abyss to explore – and hopefully snag some treasure - but they get more than they bargained for when they are attacked by a giant octopus! Meanwhile, Luffy and Zoro are swept away to a derelict town that is plagued by giant sea creatures. They soon learn of the notorious Captain Joke, a man who broke the seal on a nearby mountain and brought forth the wrath of God. Intent on repaying the villagers in exchange for a free meal, Luffy and Zoro head to the mountain hoping to defeat the monsters and free the village of its curse. However, as each beast’s defeat aids Captain Joke’s resurrection, Luffy and the gang may have bitten off more than they can chew!

Cons: Another Santa... read more
