Banpresto began streaming a stop-motion animated video for its "One Piece Cry heart ~children's dream~” line of crane game prize figures on Monday. The short recreates the famous "Oath of Brothers" scene from Eiichiro Oda's manga and anime:
Unlike most figures, Banpresto's "Cry heart" figures is deliberately designed to encourage people to create their own stop-motion shorts. The figures come with multiple faces and flexible joints, and fans can use them to create animation with smartphone apps or other means. Both sets of figures will be released in Japanese arcades in June.
The first "Cry heart" short featuring Chopper premiered earlier this year.
