One Piece - The Man in the Straw Hat

While the main storyline features Monkey D. Luffy (Iñaki Godoy), Nami (Emily Rudd), and Zoro (Mackenyu) being taken prisoner by the clown pirate Buggy (Jeff Ward), the episode's title comes from the flashbacks to young Luffy's relationship with Shanks (Peter Gadiot) and the series of events which led the pirate to leave his hat with him (and provide the episode with its most notable CGI sequence). The big top pirates fit right in with the wackiness that we've seen and working to escape them helps bring Luffy, Nami, and Zoro closer together (although one is keeping a rather large secret from the others).

Memorable moments of the episode include Shanks saving Luffy from the Lord of the Coast, the introduction of more characters who have ingested Devil's Fruit and acquired unusual powers, and our triad working together to cage the individual parts of Buggy and free the town. The episode is also notable for Koby (Morgan Davies) who joins the Marines, has his past with pirates exposed, but finds a place at the side of Marine Vice Admiral Garp (Vincent Regan) who plans to hit the high seas with the new recruits in search of the pirates.
