The global sensation of Eiichiro Oda’s “One Piece” has fans clamouring for more TV episodes, animated movies (OVA) and even suggested the possibility of a live-action adaptation following the success of another favourite anime, “Rurouni Kenshin!” Well, that idea will be saved for later, I suppose but the manga and anime franchises of One Piece is going strong as ever.
You know the story, you know the characters but what you don’t know is now they’re also available as pop vinyls! Surprise! Surprise! There’s Monkey D. Luffy – the self-proclaimed “King of Pirates” and considered by die-hard fans as the strongest pirate captain in the entire One Piece world.
Tony Tony Chopper who, for the love of Mary, is a mutant reindeer as far as I can tell; but is a loyal friend and ally to the boy captain, Luffy nevertheless.
There’s also the pirate hunk, Portgas D. Ace, who is the adopted half-brother of Luffy and last but not least – Trafalgar Law – a sword-wielding pirate, physician and outlaw wanted by the government with a bounty of Beli 500,000,000 on his head.
Well, they certainly carry a reputation for being both mean and cool, don’t they? Two opposing attributes that makes any character likable that fans can relate to. This is perhaps the reason why there is now a world-wide cult following of the manga/anime franchise that number in millions!
But even if you’re not a die-hard fan or part of the cult, you can always buy these adorable One Piece pop vinyls and add them to your memorabilia collection.
