The first half of the DVD takes place during the Warship Island arc, a filler that takes place just before Monkey D. Luffy and his crew enter the Grand Line. The story focuses on a girl named Apis whom the crew found floating in the sea. Her goal was to return back to her home in order to help a dragon named Ryu return to the Dragon’s Nest.<o:p></o:p> It may not seem to be problematic for those who enjoy the show, but the filler arc is uninteresting thanks to the rather cliché storytelling of a “legendary dragon” and the many plot holes that arise much later in the One Piece main storyline.
