We’ve seen the characters in One Piece Film Z in black and white thanks to sketches by Oda in a manga-style color in a recent Shonen Jump scan. Now it’s time to see some of those same One Piece Film Z characters in anime-style color via Toei Animation!
From left to right are the Straw Hat Pirates – Luffy, Usopp, Nami, Robin, Sanji, Zoro, Franky, Chopper, and Brook!
And here is the former Marine Admiral and villian Z along with his crew Ain (the woman) and Bins (the guy)
One Piece Film Z is the 12th movie in the One Piece series. It will be released in Japanese theaters on December 15, 2012. The movie will be the first to take place in the New World, pitting the Straw Hat Pirates against their strongest enemy yet – a man named Z. Drawings and commentary by Oda-sensei indicate he is a human with cyborg enhancements and unreal power. One Piece Film Z is being marketed as a movie that will “surpass Strong World” and contain a “heroic battle” between Luffy and Z.
