  1. Looking At Female Characters in Anime and Manga Through a Western Feminist Lens

    Well, here it goes.

    The portrayal of female characters in anime and manga is a complex discussion, not only because of the various tropes that exist but also because of the cultural perspectives through which they must be filtered and digested. While the subject of female characters in anime and manga is not as frequently written about here at The Mary Sue, it nonetheless has become a topic of discussion not only by the Japanese consumers but those like myself.

  3. Weekly Shonen Jump Theme Park Coming to Japan, Otakus Squeal with Delight

    Put down those mangas and listen up, anime fans sadly living on the western side of the world! Namco Bandai Group has recently announced that Japan will be playing host to a Weekly Shonen Jump indoor theme park in the summer of 2013 -- a veritable Xanadu for the avid otaku, featuring attractions and costumed mascots based on the manga anthology's most popular franchises: Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, and One Piece. Buying a one-way plane ticket to Japan may mean cutting back on your ramen and exorbitantly overpriced anime collectibles budget, but getting the chance to embrace an apathetic minimum wage park employee dressed as Monkey D. Luffy will be worth the trip!

  5. Jörg Sprave Makes the Kabuto Slingshot from One Piece a Reality [Video]

    Jörg Sprave, the mad genius millionaire and slingshot maker, certainly refuses to get stale. After building slingshot cannons, and more recently a slew of zombie killing devices, he's turned to comic books for inspiration. His latest creation is the Kabuto, a slingshot staff featured prominently in the One Piece series. Of course, in the hands of Sprave it's not just a slingshot: It's a throwing spear, a stabbing weapon, a zombie-grabber, and a slingshot!

  6. One Piece Anime Gets Themed Restaurant in Japan

    Fuji TV announced they'll be opening a restaurant themed after the popular One Piece anime on December 11, 2010, and it will remain open until May 31, 2011. Named "The One Piece Restaurant Going Merry-Gō," the restaurant will be decorated like the interior of the anime's Going Merry ship and will feature dishes that appeared throughout the show and manga.

    From Anime News Network, regarding the menu offerings:

    The menu includes the main character Luffy's favorite piece of meat (complete with the bone that he is often seen gnawing), Sanji's "terrible" soup (as seen on page 99 of the eighth manga volume), and Nami's Fruit Macedonia (as seen on page 31 of the sixth manga volume).

    Hey, if the restaurant is successful, they can always open up a second one themed after the Thousand Sunny.
