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!Read More

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.
