    STORY

    Pirates, Marines, and millionaires from around the world gather at the world`s largest entertainment city -- the floating casino Grantesoro owned by the "Golden Emperor" Gild Tesoro. With his vast amounts of wealth, the casino king is a power beyond the control of the world government. Friends and foes alike refer to him by the nickname "Monster". Gild Tesoro`s agenda soon becomes clear... world domination. Despising those without money and believing that those with less have no choice but to be controlled, he vows to take everything that the Straw Hat Pirates have fought to protect. As Monster makes his move, will Straw Hat`s future become one of domination? Or freedom?
