I'm not even a One Piece fan, and I would tooooooootally go.

Looks kind of like a fancy semi-expensive restaurant though. I hope kids aren't too disappointed.

For the band, they should hire those CreditReport.com guys in pirate costumes. Laughing

Happy that they went with the Going Merry instead of the Thousand Sunny.

This is really neat. I'd like to see pictures when it's open.

Why, so they can eat the food before it gets to the customer? Laughing

Now, Nami, Robin, and Vivi cosplayers, all dressed in different outfits from the show, for the waitresses...I'm all for that. Wink

Wonder if they'll play 4kids' One Piece opening. Wonder what the costumers would look like.

Nami cosplayers will absolutely need to wear highschool uniform.
Robin cosplayers will definitely need a cowboy hat.
...
Usopp ones will need an old man by his side.
And Luffy will have to be a rubber sex doll.

What's their mascot? A live deer? Because that could also symbolize Chopper. Actually, this is how Chopper would look like if he were real.

Isn't that a white tailed fawn? Chopper would look like a reindeer calf. Or a teenage reindeer, whatever that is.

I was ready to read all of the "milking ONE PIECE" comments, but surprisingly there aren't any (not trying to start the trend) Smile .

Even if this was/is an attempt to get a few extra bucks, let's be honest.. EVERY manga fan in Japan would probably want go there at least once!

This is so cool! I'm not a One Piece fan, but this is awesome! Japanese restauranteers are so good at coming up with pop-culture themed places to eat, in which a fan can live out a fantasy. Maid and Butler cafes, manga-themed fancy restaurants (even if they're temporary).

Where are the American themed places? Besides the Hollywood Cafe and ESPN Zone, I can't think of anything that even comes close to this! Maybe a few eateries within amusement parks, but a restaurant that focuses on a single comc series or TV show as a theme? Wow!

It's not an actual ship? That sucks Sad

You know what Japan needs? A One Piece-themed pancakeship. You know, a floating restaurant that sells pancakes. Kids will love it.
