Episode of Chopper Plus: Bloom in Winter, Miracle Sakura is the 9th One Piece film. Released on March 1, 2008, it is a remake of the Drum Island Arc (essentially a "what if" story). It features Franky, Nico Robin, and the Thousand Sunny, who weren't present in the original version. In addition to Wapol, Chess and Kuromarimo, Wapol's older brother, Musshuru appears, with a new Devil Fruit power that allows him to produce poisonous spores. The film reveals that he too had been exiled from Drum Island and is seeking his revenge. This film was nominated for the Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year in 2008, but was beaten by Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. To commemorate the 15th anniversary of the One Piece television anime, a 2014 special edition of the movie, featuring new footage, aired on Fuji TV and its affiliates on December 31, 2014. The new footage included adaptations of the Drum Island installments of From the Decks of the World. The New Year's Eve airing also ended with a special message from the Straw Hat Pirates to the fans, to show their gratitude for the fifteenth anniversary.[1]
