Anime NotesEdit


Episode of LuffyEdit

Episode of ZoroEdit

Episode of UsoppEdit

  • This special shows Mornin, the mayor of Syrup Village, for the first time since the manga.
  • Episode of Usopp is the only section in which the title character's childhood is not shown.

Episode of SanjiEdit

  • Although not directly stated, Zeff is implied to have eaten his own leg as in the manga. In the anime adaptations of the flashback in Episode 26 and Episode 801, the events were censored so that Zeff cuts off his leg when it gets caught in wreckage while diving to save Sanji. However, in Episode of East Blue, these scenes are not shown nor recalled by Sanji. Instead, Sanji simply leaves his sentence incomplete when he sees that Zeff has lost a leg, rather than explicitly asking if he ate it.
