One Piece and Dragon Ball Z Design Watches Released by G-SHOCK

27.June.2020 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

CASIO G-SHOCK has announced a collaboration with the popular anime series One Piece and Dragon Ball Z, with watch designs for each show releasing in July and August respectively.

GA-110JOP: ¥26,400 (Tax Included)

The GA-110JOP One Piece watch uses the popular GA-110 model G-SHOCK which has a distinct big case. It’s covered in a black base colour and features an illustration of Luffy strong and grown up. At 9-o’clock is a motif of Luffy’s straw hat, while at 3-o’clock is the word “WANTED.” Additionally, when the hour and minute hands both strike 2-o’clock and 4-o’clock, they combine with slanted golden lines to create the “X” shape that Luffy has on his chest.

The back cover features the “G-SHOCK x One Piece” logo.

GA-110JDB: ¥26,400 (Tax Included)

Like the One Piece watch, the Dragon Ball Z one also uses the GA-110 model and is coloured in that iconic DBZ orange. The design is inspired by Goku going through training to become stronger. The lettering and logo is gold for accent. At 9-o’clock is the Four-Star Dragon Ball while at 3-o’clock is the letter “Z.”

On the back cover of this one it features the Dragon Ball Z logo.

 

Both watch designs will for sure be appreciated by fans for their detailed designs and references.

  • ONE PIECE LINE Messenger App Stamp Proceeds Donated to Japan’s Front Line Health Care Workers

    28.August.2020 | ANIME&GAME

    Johnny’s Smile Up ! Project was set up by Johnny’s Group to contribute towards society and aid in relief activities. In the past, it has helped organise relief activities following such disasters as the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, and Great Eastern Japan Earthquake.

     

    Japanese messaging app LINE supports the project’s work, and so has teamed up with it and Eiichiro Oda, Takuya Kimura, and Kazuya Kamenashi to create ONE PIECE themed ‘donation stamps’ which will be available on LINE from August 27 to November 26.

    LINE sells donation stamps every year, with the proceeds going towards providing relief during disasters as well as for children around the world. Since April this year, LINE has supported and cooperated with Johnny’s Smile Up ! Project, and in June released their first collaborative stamps together which were based on the Japanese boy band Kanjani Eight. The two companies are coming together once again to develop ONE PIECE stamps in collaboration with Japanese publisher Shueisha, the creator of ONE PIECE Eiichiro Oda, and singers and actors Takuya Kimura and Kazuya Kamenashi, both of whom are close friends with Oda.

     

    The full stamp set includes 24 stamps for just ¥250 or 100 LINE coins, all of which were sketched and/or conceived by Eiichiro Oda, Takuya Kimura, and Kazuya Kamenashi.

     

    Eiichiro Oda | Comment

    “Illustration is a place where one’s personality comes out. Kimura and Kamenashi don’t normally draw pictures, so there was some silliness, but the atmosphere and intention was still ‘Smile Up’! I had fun with them both, and I’m thankful for the size of their hearts. Be sure to try out the stamps!”

     

    Takuya Kimura | Comment

    “I am truly honoured to have received Eiichiro Oda-sensei’s approval for the Smile Up ! Project. A lot of the words that are encouraging me these days can be found in ONE PIECE, and I was able to pick out my personal favourites! Definitely take a look!”

     

    Kazuya Kamenashi | Comment

    “I am beyond honoured to have been given the chance to participate as a fellow ‘ONE PIECE x Smile Up ! Stamp’ partner. Truth be told, drawing isn’t my forte, but I put my heart into it and had a wonderful time. It was like a dream, a lot of fun. Make sure you all use the stamps!

     

    Johnny’s Smile Up ! Project will use the proceeds for the stamps to support front line health care workers in Japan.

    29.July.2020 | ANIME&GAME / FOOD

    Character-inspired Japanese confectionery series Tabemas has revealed that its next batch of sweet treats are Dragon Ball Super inspired. The sweets were released at FamilyMart convenience stores in Japan on July 28, 2020.

     

    ‘Tabemas’ is an abbreviation of the Japanese words taberareru masukotto, meaning ‘mascots that you can eat.’ It is a Japanese confectionery series that combines well-known characters and Japanese sweets made from ingredients like red bean paste, sugar and rice flour. The sweets are also made with a dough called “nerikiri” which is used in making traditional Japanese wagashi sweets.

    Tabemas Dragon Ball Super: ¥369 Before Tax | 1 set of 2

    The confection designs include the iconic Dragon Balls from the series up to Seven-Stars, as well as Shenron.

    Shenron is matcha-flavoured. Using nerikiri dough, Tabemas has brought the dragon god to life with his iconic red gaze, whiskers, and tail. Each of the seven Dragon Balls are filled with custard cream. One set of these confections comes with both Shenreon and one of the Dragon Balls, so fans can enjoy both flavours.

    As well as all of the seven Dragon Balls, there are two secrets ones too. What exactly they are requires a trip to FamilyMart.

  • Da-iCE Perform One Piece’s New Opening Theme ‘DREAMIN’ ON’

    16.July.2020 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Japanese dance and vocal group Da-ICE are set to release six new songs over the next six months. It has been announced that the first of the consecutive singles, titled DREAMIN’ ON, will be the newest and 23rd opening theme for the anime series ONE PIECE.

    One Piece is a shonen manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It began serialisation in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997, and it’s anime adaptation began broadcasting in 1999. The story follows Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates as they set off on the seas in search of the One Piece.

    The new opening theme DREAMIN’ ON by Da-iCE will hit the anime series on August 2, 2020. It’s a fast-paced rock song about friends, dreams, and having the courage to take a step forward.

     

    The Da-iCE members themselves are known as fans of One Piece. Sōta Hanamura, who wrote the lyrics, said: “Getting to sing an opening theme for One Piece, which I’ve never stopped loving for over 20 years, really feels me with happiness and emotion. One Piece was also the first time in my life that a series in Weekly Shonen Jump made me cry. When writing the lyrics, I remembered how the series is about the importance of running towards your dreams, and I was conscious of how it also uses words and phrases that are easy to understand for kids. The series also has the ‘Wano Country,’ so I added a sense of Japanese-ness in there too.”

     

    Da-iCE member and group performer Tōru Iwaoka said: “I really can’t believe I’m in charge of the opening theme for an anime series—and a manga series—which I have always and still do watch and read to this day. Even now I still think it’s a prank <laughs>.” The other band members also expressed their disbelief of this opportunity, and said they won’t believe it until they hear the song on air on August 2.

     

    DREAMIN’ ON will be released on August 26, 2020, and will also feature a cover by Da-iCE of the first ever One Piece opening theme We Are! Limited edition copies of the single will be coupled with a DVD that features over 2 hours of visual content.

     

    The single marks Da-iCE’s first release since moving to the music label Avex. The band will also be the first to perform an online 3DCG virtual live tour, entitled “Da-iCE×ABEMA ONLINE LIVE TOUR 2020 -THE Da-iCE-,” for ABEMA’s virtual stage “ABEMA Arena.”
