Interest Nami's Mikan Oranges From One Piece Manga Sold in Real Life

Nami's prized mikan oranges, as seen in Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga and anime, will actually be sold in Japanese supermarkets and department stores in October. A farm from Japan's Kumamoto Prefecture is offering these official One Piece mikan. "Nami's Mikan ~Premium~" stand out from other mikan oranges with their sweetness — they have a sugar content of 12 percent or more.
The official website for the oranges already began taking pre-orders on Friday. A set of five will go for 1,050 yen (about US$13), 10 to 12 will go for 3,150 yen (US$40), and 30 to 32 will go for 6,300 yen (US$80). Naturally, each set comes in a package with a different, brand-new anime illustration of Nami, the Straw Hat Pirates, and Nami's mikan trees aboard the Thousand Sunny ship.
Not incidentally, the two-hour One Piece Episode of Nami: Kōkaishi no Namida to Nakama no Kizuna special will premiere in Japan on Saturday.
Update: Number of mikan in medium set corrected. Thanks, d_ace_shines.
