One Piece Characters Sport Jeans in New Campaign
posted on by Carlos Cadorniga
The Strawhat Pirates (give or take a few crew members and fellow pirates) are rocking some fashionable denim courtesy of Banpresto toy company.
The pirates of One Piece are being featured as jeans-clad figures as part of the special campaign known as Jeans Freak. Characters like the majority of the Strawhat Crew (minus Chopper, Franky and Brook) along with companions and rivals like Nefeltari Vivi, Boa Hancock, Portgas D. Ace, Perona and Rebecca proudly sport some stylish denim apparel as part of the campaign.
Each character will see an eventual release as arcade prizes, with two color variations each. The first to come out will be Monkey D. Luffy, who will see a release in December. Nami and Nico Robin will follow him shortly after in January. The rest of the release schedule is unannounced as of now.
The Banpresto official Twitter will also hold a special Twitter campaign, where followers that post with the event hashtag "JeansFreak" (in katakana) and retweet about the event may receive a Jeans Freak Luffy figure as a special present.
Over the summer, a special campaign was held that let fans could vote on which jeans-wearing pirate they like the most, divided into men and women. At the end of August, it was announced that Trafalgar Law was the best looking among the male pirates while Boa Hancock dominated over the women.
