In order to promote their latest crane game figure prize series “One Piece Cry Heart~The Cherry Blossoms That Fall on Winter Island,” Banpresto has released a five minute stop motion animated short and posted it on the web for fans of the series. The short features a stop-motion version of a famous scene from the 17th volume of the manga, “Hiluluk’s Cherry Blossoms.”
There’s no dialogue, but even if you’re not familiar with the scene it should still be fairly easy to understand. Besides, even if you fail to grasp the meaning of the short, it’s still enjoyable seeing Chopper in stop motion form. You can check out the video below:
The first set of the Cry Heart figure prizes will be launched in the second week of March. A second set will be released a week after.
