    Default One Piece VTUBE: Mayumi Tanaka and Kappei Yamaguchi put on an act!

    To help promote the upcoming One Piece: Episode of Skypiea television special, Mayumi Tanaka and Kappei Yamaguchi put on motion capture devices and went full virtual with their One Piece characters. From ANN:

In the final charade about "Who" is "Doing What" "Where," Tanaka correctly guesses "In Skypeia, Vivi is imitating a Celestial Dragon."


    Goofy stuff but quite funny:

    Honestly give it the time and technological improvement we get after the end of One Piece and this is One Piece kai material.

    As an engineer working with those stuff I can assure you that CGI has a bright future (or present, look at Land of the Lustrous).
    Hell the One Piece "mugiwara chase" special episode is already a good example.

    Anyway this was pretty fun XD

    I don't know why I was expecting Mayumi Tanaka to go all out for that Hawk Gattling lol

    LOL! Just trying to see Tanaka pull off a Gear 2nd while wearing that motion capture getup was worth it alone, even if she couldn't do it.

    It is the biggest craze in Japan right now after the success of Kizuna Ai and it has helped open the door for a wide range of possibilities for anime characters to interact with real people.

    I would love to see what other wacky possibilities the Japanese can come up with.
