New One Piece movie + bonus gift!

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Japanese movie-goers who see this year's One Piece Film "Strong World" will receive the "0th volume" of Eichiro Oda's One Piece manga. Oda launched his manga about the young captain Monkey D. Luffy in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine 12 years ago in 1997, but the manga in the upcoming "One Piece Kan-zero" bonus gift will depict the world of One Piece from 20 years ago. Oda was only a junior high student 20 years ago when he thought of the earliest concepts that would become the popular manga/anime that One Piece is today.

Munehisa Sakai's One Piece Film "Strong World" is the 10th film based on Eiichiro Oda's manga. For the first time, Oda will be personally overseeing the film's production. He created the story and has drawn over 120 pages of rough drawings for the production of the movie.

Naoto Takenaka (actor, Aikou Kaitou (TV host) and Kousuke Kitajima (Olympis gold-medal winner) are among guest voices for the cast. The movie will open in Japan on December 12.

Here's One Piece Movie 10 - "Strong Hold" trailer:

I have to say, I have never watched an episode of One Piece anime or read any of the manga^^; but I hear it's a great and the movie looks awesome! For all those who are fans, you must see the movie when it comes out!~
