In America we’ve seen manga take over the hearts and minds of a large portion of younger people, but it looks like the manga One Piece is taking it one step further on a train route to Akihabara. Japanator.com‘s Dale North posted pictures of this unique occurrence and talked about his experience, saying:
Right above my head, next to me, and all around this entire train were One Piece images. Every spot where advertising would usually be was filled with One Piece manga art, blown up to epic sizes. They were done in such a way that you couldn’t gather too much content from them, but at the same time, they were entertaining on their own. I walked my entire car and onto others, finding that the whole train was packed full of awesome One Piece art and happy onlookers.
North continues to say that the exterior of the train also had color One Piece artwork near each door, and the monitors inside the train played several “fun multiple choice One Piece quizzes.”

Let me just say this — NYC is home to many comic companies, as well as subway lines. Someone talk to the transit authority. Come on, Spider-man saved one of your trains in Spider-Man 2!
