One Piece: Crew Manifest #3

Saturday 9th November 2013


Before you set sail on the latest round of voyages for One Piece, brush up on who you’ll be encountering in this latest volume of nautical nonsense!

One Piece - ChopperTony Tony Chopper: Once a normal reindeer, after eating the Hito-Hito Fruit, Chopper gained the ability to transform into a human. He normally maintains a diminutive hybrid appearance, but can take on a more powerful form if forced into a combat role. He also developed extreme intelligence, enough to train as a doctor – a role he enthusiastically fulfils after joining Luffy’s crew. A whiz with a chemistry set, he’s able to create a wealth of medicines and tonics for his new friends, and even creates a pill called ‘Rumble Ball’ that enhances his own powers further. However, as the youngest crewmate, Chopper is naïve about the world and keen to avoid fighting wherever possible.

One Piece - Nico RobinNico Robin: A child prodigy who became an archaeologist aged only eight, Robin initially faces the Straw Hat Pirates as an enemy, the vice president of Baroque Works. Having joined the criminal organisation after the World Government framed her as a would-be world conqueror, she switches sides after Luffy saves her life. As well as serving as the crew’s new researcher and specialist in ancient artefacts, she brings a wealth of knowledge about world politics and criminal activity. Robin also has the bizarre ability to make copies of her body parts ‘bloom’ on any nearby surface, thanks to eating the Flower-Flower Fruit.

One Piece - Nefertari Vivi

Nefertari Vivi: The princess of Alabasta, Vivi is a kind and pleasant soul, always putting the needs of her people above her own. She’s also has a way with stealth, having infiltrated and worked her way up the ranks of Baroque Works, all to gather evidence of a conspiracy against her father. It’s under her Baroque alias of Miss Wednesday that she first meets Luffy and crew but, after a classic misunderstanding (read: FIGHT!), Vivi temporarily joins the crew as they journey to her homeland, and a showdown with the terrifying Crocodile – a malevolent pirate who has usurped the throne.

One Piece - SmokerSmoker: Also known as ‘The White Hunter’, Smoker is a thorn in the Straw Hats’ side from the moment he crosses their path in Loguetown. Despite being an officer in the Marines, he’s prone to operating off the radar, ignoring rules and conventions in the course of his dogged pursuit of Luffy. Having eaten the Plume-Plume Fruit, he has the ability to control smoke, even changing his entire body into it. This makes him a nightmare to fight – how do you hit someone you can’t touch, when he’s filling your lungs with thick, noxious fog?

One Piece - WapolWapol: A corpulent hulk of a man, Wapol is the corrupt heir apparent to Drum Island. Unlike his father, a king beloved by the people, Wapol is a greedy, cruel monster. Having taken a handful of Drum Island’s world-renowned doctors hostage and killed the rest, he rules with an iron fist; controlling access to healthcare to force the people into subservience. Having eaten the Munch-Munch Fruit, he can devour anything and adopt its properties into his own body, though Wapol will always rely on his underlings to fight for him before sullying his hands.

One Piece, the third box set, is out now in the UK from Manga Entertainment.

Climbing a mountain to save Nami!
With Nami on the verge of death, Luffy's crew abandons its voyage to Alabasta and goes looking for help. Their search leads them to frosty Drum Island, where the locals don't roll out the red carpet for pirates, and the only doctor in town lives atop a treacherous, snow-covered mountain.
In order to save their friend, Luffy and Sanji must survive an avalanche, duke it out with a man-eating herd of abominable rabbits, and defeat a foe who devours anything he can get his mouth on. Danger lurks around every corner on this treacherous mission, but the Straw Hats have more at stake than ever before.

One Piece. Pieces of Hate

Been there, done that, and bought the T-shirt....
Of the anime titles turned into T-shirts by Uniqlo, One Piece is the biggest – the reigning king of all the anime and manga franchises, pretty much unchallenged in the 16 years since Eiichiro Oda began the manga, and 14 since Toei Animation started animating it. But perhaps Uniqlo would have turned One Piece into a line of shirts even if the saga hadn’t been a world hit. Just look at those pirate designs – brash, cartoony, uncompromising. There’s no whiff of a committee, no hint of a five-year product plan reliant on changing a heroine’s hair colour (or deepening her cleavage). It just helps that the pictures are as commercial when they move as they are when they’re a cool static graphic in a manga, or on the front of a T-shirt.

One Piece - ninja or pirates?

Matt Kamen turns video pirate!
“Ninja or pirates?” While Naruto – representing the ninja corner, of course – has proven hugely popular, UK fans have long been unable to weigh in on the other side. With the long-awaited arrival of One Piece on DVD this May, that finally changes.

Matt Kamen finds out who’s who in the One Piece anime
Monkey D. Luffy: The founder and captain of the Straw Hats, Luffy is a carefree soul who wants to become king of the pirates. After eating the Gum-Gum Devil Fruit, he gained an elastic body, making him near-invulnerable and able to stretch but paradoxically making him unable to swim.

One Piece music: TOMATO CUBE

Tom Smith on One Piece’s TOMATO CUBE
One-hit wonders. Every country has them. And, as PSY can most likely attest, very few musicians really want to be labelled as one. Sure, it’s all fun, games and fancy dinners when that royalty cheque floats through the letter box. The one with all the zeroes from that single from yesteryear that went massive. But what about the rest of your work? It must be somewhat unsatisfying as an artist to be known for one track, while everything else remains relatively overlooked, and expectations are high for that difficult follow up single. If you’re TOMATO CUBE, you do nothing. Ever again.

Ninja Scroll

Andrew Osmond on one of anime’s holy trinity
Ninja Scroll is crammed with memorable images, set-pieces and characters. Like many of the best international anime hits, the contents of Ninja Scroll are foreign yet familiar. Instead of the future megacities of Akira, we’re deep in the Japanese countryside. We’re weaving through fog and fireflies, springing through treetops, sneaking down rivers, hanging halfway down stone cliffs.
Animation producer, director & illustrator, LeSean Thomas was our special guest of honour at last week's MCM London Comic Con. Now, we are extremely happy to share with you the teaser trailer for his upcoming project, Cannon Busters: The Animated Pilot.
The new cross-content project, nowisee, (pronounced "noise"), is aimed at young people, asking them to "question the meaning of life".
