The Giant Mechanical Soldier of Karakuri Castle movie relies on more jokes than the previous movies since the villains are rather weak here. The Straw Hats crew are still made up of Luffy, Nami, Sanji, Usopp, Robin, Chopper, and Zoro. The movie took place between season 8 and 9 from the TV. Not only are there more jokes in this movie, but it is also more sexualized. Within the first 5 minutes of the movie, I swear Nami breasts must have jiggled 15 times.
I believe this is the first time we got a clue of Luffy second gear from this movie. There was an attack that compresses Luffy in the same way when he activates second gear. He seems puzzled at his increase in power. The villain was underwhelming to say the lease. If you don’t mind reading a lot of dialogs with more jokes than combat, then you may enjoy this movie.
This movie is only recommended for One Piece fan. The anime contains strong graphic violence and moderate suggestive themes/dialogs.
