The special will revisit the childhood past of the three sworn brothers Luffy, Ace, and Sabo, when they all dreamed of becoming pirates. In addition, it will depict how Sabo originally came into the kingdom of Dressrosa (which was not depicted in Eiichiro Oda's original manga or the television anime), as well as his reunion with Luffy from his point of view.

The special will air on Fuji TV on Saturday, August 22 from 9:00 to 11:10 p.m. (The One Piece television anime series normally airs on Sunday mornings.)

The One Piece "3D2Y" Ace no Shi wo Koete! Luffy Nakama to no Chikai special celebrated the 15th anniversary of the television anime last August, and it ended with a shot of Sabo standing at a place pivotal to the story.

Before that, the One Piece Episode of Luffy: Hand Island no Bōken special and One Piece Episode of Nami: Kōkaishi no Namida to Nakama no Kizuna special also aired on Saturday evenings in 2012.
