I thought I'd reblog this for people who didn't know this little awesome tidbit of news. (I certainly didn't find out until last week.)
EDIT: If you click on the names of the magazine's they now link to their official sites. I tried put all that I could find.
To celebrate the 200 millionth copy of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga in print, the manga's main lead Luffy will "hijack" the covers of all the magazines that Shueisha publishes between January 31 and February 28 of next year. That includes all of Shueisha's manga, literature, women's and news magazines. The announcement was made in next year's combined 3rd/4th issue (pictured at right) of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, which went on sale on Monday.
During the campaign, all of these magazines will include original One Piece goods such as postcards as bonus supplements. They will also offer mail-away presents such as reproductions of original manga art and signed shikishi (sketch boards) to their readers.
The following magazines will be part of the campaign:
- Weekly Shonen Jump (9th issue)
- Business Jump (5th issue)
- Jump Square (March)
- One Piece Volume 61
- Margaret (5th issue)
- Subaru (March)
- Men's Non-No (March)
- Weekly Shonen Jump (11th issue)
- You (5th issue)
- Shōsetsu Subaru (March)
- Weekly Shonen Jump (12th issue)
