Foreign versions of the manga:
I'm always on the lookout for OP printed in other languages. Let me know how I can get a hold of them!
So far I know the existence of a Thai version, two Chinese versions (one for within Singapore) and a
Spanish version... as soon as I get ahold of them, I'll put info up about it in the
There are so many, I lost track. I knew I would lose track as soon as Animate entered the picture...
Items available through various means (and none are easy outside Japan) include miniature figurines (realistic
or super-deformed, SD ones can come with scenery or not), collectible stickers, a CCG (collectable-card-game), trading
sticker-postcards, trading cards, lami-cards, pencil boards, keychains, jigsaw puzzles, posters, tapestries,
suction signs (i.e. what you stick on car windows), pencases, zipper mascots, cutlery, notepads....
I guarantee that if you try to collect every last bit of OP merchandising, you will go broke unless you're a
millionaire -- and you probably won't be able to collect all of them if you can't go to Japan every 2 or 3
months... I myself have only a small fraction of the vast amount of merchandising ^^;
Artbooks and info-books:
I am desperately seeking someone with an extra copy of the second anime artbook.... lemme know if you have one to spare (T_T)
Fate or not? When a manga becomes an anime, games usually follow. So far, one game for WonderSwan, one game
for Game Boy Color, and two games for the PlayStation have been released, with more on the way.
I'm in the process of attempting to write walkthroughs or FAQs or whatever you call those things for the games. Any
info that can be provided would be great; and just for that purpose I reworded the fanfic contribution board to make
a walkthrough creator's board for the two PSX games and the GBC game (the WS game will be last, as that is the one
handheld that is least likely to be had by non-jpns gamers)....
Also, you can use these boards to ask questions you may have about getting through a tough situation (i.e. you want
out when you're stuck somewhere)... that is, if there is someone out there that can answer the question for you.
* Grand Battle! walkthough board
* Creation of the "Dream Luffy Pirate Fleet"! walkthrough board
* Jump Out, Pirate Fleets! walkthrough board
Where there are games, there are strategy guides. without fail. from shueisha, even. so I'm sure these aren't all of them.... ^^;;
