Again as I sort through my piles of accumulating 'stuff' from Japan I find more things I originally obtained for OP fans.
This time I've got a bunch of movies. These are taken from my TV because I have no software or hardware to put analog tapes to a common digital medium. Big deal, you'll enjoy just the same.
PLEASE download and save these just once. I can't keep bringing out cool shyt if I'm over b/w. If some of you want to trade amongst each other that'd be cool too.
The oft-rumored DBZ/Astro Boy/OP crossover "animation" This is just a 30 second clip mind you. And although I'm comfortable playing the role of ignorant gaijin who can pretend not to understand when I'm told not to film something (like this) I'm not going to be an ignorant STUPID gaijin and hold my camera up in front of everyone. This IS shot from behind backs but you can clearly see the floating Arlong Park 2, Merry and hear the characters.
Here's that 'real' Going Merry cruise ship at Odaiba. Again, sorry for the shitty filming but since it was pouring rain and I had only an umbrella to guard the camera, this is as good as it gets. Note the attendants with Luffy hats.
The live OP show from Jump Festa when I was in Tokyo in 2003. Note the woman playing Nami. She's Oda's wife as some may recall. And of course a closeup of Zoro.
Running around doing shit on stage at the OP show. Jango!!!!!
Smoker running around, Luffy saying his famous line and Buggy cackling.
Some OP merchandise, stand-ups from the cruise in the summer and cosplayers.
OP live show again this time dancing to the first opening.
The following are taken from the OP Live Stage where both Luffy and Chopper's VA acted out Chopper's origin. Lots of cool movies, some not so cool. This was yet another event where any filming was strictly prohibitted and I was NOT getting kicked out before Oda came on stage, which he eventually does, macked out in a Bo-bobo mask. Nami's VA also pops in as a surprise guest and in the end everyone sings "The Blue-Nosed Reindeer" and Oda unleashes a massive amount of confetti on the crowd.
Another Para Para thing. This is the special remix performance at the end of Para Para Paradise 5. This is the section with the English 'Believe' or rather 'Dreamin' of You'.
