I had seen on Instagram that Asuka Kawazu was cosplaying Rebecca, and it seemed sort of random and out of nowhere. Now it all makes sense.

In general the women of One Piece became quite sexier during the timeskip. Still no Mashima levels.

Does japanese Playboy feature nudity? If it does, w̶h̶e̶r̶e̶ ̶d̶o̶ ̶I̶ ̶b̶u̶y̶ ̶i̶t̶?̶ what do people say about a manga aimed at teens collaborating with a mainstream adult magazine showing people cosplaying in the nude as characters from said manga?

Why does Playboy magazine has to commemorate One Piece's 1,000th published chapter? Is it a common occurence in the Playboy magazine in Japan to celebrate manga-related stuff? I'm just being curious here x)

No, no nudity in Japanese Playboy.

I doubt anyone in Japan cares. They plaster half-naked girls on the covers of shounen magazines all the time in Japan. And sexualizing manga characters isn't a big deal given all the scenes we've seen with Nami and all the other One Piece ladies already.

Weekly Playboy celebrates a lot of manga collabs, yes.

It's weird to me to see a TV announcer take part in a collab like this. You wouldn't see something like this in the US; maybe in Mexico though lol.

Mexico would definitely have no problems with something like this.

According to Wikipedia, US Playboy dropped nudity for a year in 2017, then hastily brought it back.

Honest question is whether US Playboy can even be said to exist anymore. They stopped publishing the print magazine last year.

At first I was bit disappointed at Nami, but then i remembered that no woman has a 10 inch stomach.

the teens who started reading one piece in 98 are now in their 40s.
