Just a few days later One Piece Celebrating the 25th anniversary, Shueisha unveiled a special A play series creator Eiichiro Oda’s art collection worth over 1 million yen.
The collection was recently revealed as part of Shueisha Manga-Art Heritage and includes two collections with a total of three artworks.
In case you are unfamiliar, Shueisha Manga-Art Heritage preserves manga art and releases them as museum-quality works of art. These collectible works of art are released under four labels which are divided according to the method of printing.
A video promoting the collection was also released:
The first of the new A play art collections is titled The “Red Hair” Press which is released to celebrate the upcoming release of One Piece Movie: Red. As the name suggests, this artwork showcases Shanks with red hair.
“Red hair” features a limited print of the iconic panel which shows Shanks rescuing Luffy fired from One Piece Volume 1. This is an A2 print (594 x 420mm) which features a seal signature and is printed using flat letterpress on Gmund Cotton Max White paper.
Since it is a limited edition and uses high-quality materials, the “Red Hair” print is priced at JPY 495,000 (approximately USD 3,660).
It won’t be easy to buy though as a lottery system is in place for those interested in ordering one.
The second collection is called In the sea part 1, and it consists of two color prints. The first is an A2 print of the Mermaid Cove art printed on fine art paper which served as the cover for One Piece Volume 62.
Meanwhile, the second print features the mermaid cafe art printed on A2 fine art paper which has been published on Eiichiro Oda Art Book: ONE PIECE COLOR WALK 8 WOLF.
Both prints come in a set of 2 and are priced at 297,000 JPY (about $2,200). As the “Red hair” print, the In the sea part 1 Draws will be available through a lottery system.
The lotteries of the two collections accept registrations until August 3, 2022 on the store of the Manga-Art Heritage site.
