An exclusive anime prologue to One Piece Film Z with an original story penned by manga creator Eiichiro Oda.
So I finally managed to find this english subbed so here is a short review. The animation was good. The characters all look brilliant and the colours are bright.Unfortunately from the get go this short packs in fan-service. Now don't get me wrong, the whole 10-11 minutes is not just fanservice but is is very noticably there in force. This is a shame as One Piece really doesn't need that kind of treatment. The story for what it is has the straw-hats milling about on Sunny during a warm and lazy day. It is mostly light hearted fun as they use there imaginations to entertain themselves, go swimming and laze around doing things they enjoy.Overall it was a nice interlude which was enjoyable enough to watch, yet lacks a grab-factor to make you want to revisit it often. The fanservice may appeal to some but it goes a little overboard at the beggining (well overboard for One Piece). I would recommend watching Glorious Island if you are a fan of the show and want to watch everything, or want something short and light-hearted rather than a full episode. I would not recommend this to people wanting to see what One Piece was about.
