Weekly One Piece Newspaper Runs for 1 Month
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
For four weeks, Nikkan Sports Shinbun-sha is publishing a special Shūkan One Piece Shimbun (Weekly One Piece Newspaper) for 300 yen (about US$3.60). Each issue has about 28 full-color, tabloid-sized pages with child-friendly content. The first issue includes an extended interview with the manga's creator and One Piece Film Z executive producer Eiichiro Oda, a "tell-all" discussion with the manga's editor, voice cast interviews, and oversized illustrations.
The first Shūkan One Piece Shimbun issue went on sale on Thursday at major Japanese convenience stores and train station newsstands. It is also sold at the One Piece Mugiwara Store located in Tokyo's Shibuya ward, the Mugiwara Store Osaka at the One Piece Exhibition that opened at Osaka's Tenpōzan Gallery on November 24, and ASA outlets nationwide. Issues are available via mail order for a higher 450-yen (US$5.50) price.
