"ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION 10000th Anniversary Memorial 'LIVE MEMORIAL TOUR'" Photo Exhibition Review!
Tokyo One Piece Tower celebrated its 10000th performance of "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION" on Feb. 1st.
From this memorial day, a photo exhibition, "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION 10000th Performance Anniversary LIVE MEMORIAL TOUR," started.
At this exhibition, we have gathered and displayed various historical photos taken by our guests and fans,
and have reflected the history of "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION."
Unfortunately, due to the temporary closure of Tokyo One Piece Tower, this exhibition had ended its display on Feb. 27th.
However, for the sake of guests who had planned to visit the park, we would like to recreate photo exhibition here, at this Tongari Column!
Off to our Journey of Memory!
Photo Exhibition took place on the 4th Floor of Tokyo One Piece Tower. The exhibition was displayed in a format where you had to go around the area in a big circle.
At the starting point was a message about holding this Photo Exhibition:
――――――――――――――――――― In order for our guests to fully enjoy the world of "ONE PIECE",
Tokyo One Piece Tower has continued to perform "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION" for 5 consecutive years, ever since the park's opening on 2015.
And now, as of February 1st, 2020, "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION" has finally reached its 10000th performance!
In order to celebrate this memorial record, we will hold a "LIVE MEMORIAL TOUR" that reflects back the past series from
"ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION～Welcome To TONGARI Mystery Tour～" (2015) to the current act "MARIONETTE" (2019).
Within this 5 years, 5 types of adventurous acts were performed by a total with 72 cast members (including 7 casts appearing only in video).
In order to continue everlasting journey, we have decided to take a moment to reflect back the 10000 adventures that took place
with the valuable records that our supporting fans have kept, in a form of photo exhibition.
To all fans who have shared us your valuable pictures for the exhibition, as well as for all guests who have visited our park,
we greatly appreciate your kind cooperation and continual support.
At the same time, please stay in touch with Tokyo One Piece Tower "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION,"
as we will continue to place great efforts in satisfying our valued guests with services beyond expectations.
Now, the time has come.
Let us begin our Journey of Memory
Remembering the past "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION"
The Photo Exhibition begins from the area near the photographic spot of Logue Town's scaffold (area on the right side once you go up the escalator to the 4th Floor).
The outlines of the past 5 acts of "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION" is displayed.
On the display panels are the key visual, outline, involved cast members, and performance period & number of each act.
「ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION～Welcome to TONGARI Mystery Tour～」
「ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION〝2（second）〟」
「ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION〝3〟『PHANTOM』」
「ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION『PHANTOM』」
「ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION『MARIONETTE』」
The route of this exhibition was guided by the characters created by the author, Eiichirou Oda, designed solely for "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION".
Diva Ann: Tongari Island's famous singer who can create illusions of any images she touches with the power of "Vision-Vision Fruit"
Parrot DJ: DJ personality of the live house in Tongari Island
Puggy: bodyguard of Buggy's Delivery with a bounty of 200 million berry
Let move ahead! ...but wait!
There seems to be a familiar sentence written at the starting point of this Photo Exhibition...
*translation: "The time that passed is something like an illusion"
Keep this in mind because we will explain what this is to you later.
Numerous pictures decorates the Photo Exhibition
The display of photos begins in the restroom area, with various pictures of Luffy! Definitely, it's the "Wall of Luffy" !
You can't get your eyes off from Luffy's various facial expressions and poses is shown here. In fact, have you noticed that there are pictures from the same scene but with different expressions?
Even within the same act, there's numerous movements and faces that Luffy shows us. This tells us that all of the scenes that everyone photo shot is a one-time-only act that you can never watch again on real live.
Now, let's take a look at the wall in front of "Zoro's Soul of Edge" and "Brook's Horror House" attractions.
The first part is the "Straw Hat Crew" Photographic Zone.
The highlight scenes of each crew member is as awesome as anyone can imagine!
Everyone's shooting methods and techniques just like a professional photographer, makes the Live Show more vivid and amusing!
Let's see what is displayed next.
Another highlight point of "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION" is the combination acts and the conversation between various characters.
During the live show, each character is continuously moving around, so there may be scenes in which we didn't know!
In fact, I feel like I might be able to hear Luffy and his crew's conversation from the pictures!
There are other characters indispensable for the story.
You may have been excited to know who the next side character that will be involved in the each acts.
Projection Panel: the place where numerous scenes are shown.
In a slideshow format, the photos were projected on the wall, and we saw many guests stopping in front of the wall to watch the slideshow.
Now then. There is a little trick on this display panel, but have you noticed what that trick is?
Let us zoom in on the panel.
*translation: "Just thinking about it, makes the past a phantom"
Looks like some kind of sentence is written on it.
*translation: "You definitely have your feet on the ground"
*translation: "The path we each had walked up to today will lead us to the future"
*translation: "There will definitely be a day when the clear blue sky spreads ahead"
As the Photo Exhibition draws to the close, you will find one display panel that will conclude the exhibition.
*translation: "No need for goodbyes. Let's meet again"
These are the lyrics from the song "PHANTOM ~ promise ~" (written and sung by GReeeeN), used as the ending theme song for the live show "PHANTOM" and "MARIONETTE."
We hid the lyrics of this song on the display panels throughout the exhibition, hoping that our guests can enjoy the Photo Exhibition as many times as possible.
Were you able to find all the lyrics of this song?
How many tricks within the Photo Exhibition were you able to find?
As for the design-related tricks, please look closely on the flooring sheet designed with the logo marks of each "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION" acts. As you can notice, each logo design differs, but moreover, the sheet itself was designed based on the motifs of each production.
For "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION～Welcome to TONGARI Mystery TOUR", for example, ancient-like designs were used in relation to "Heart Stones" and "Mystery".
"ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION〝2（second）〟" was designed with images of "Light" (in relation to Kizaru's "Glint-Glint Fruit") and "Key."
Diva Ann's "Microphone" and Parrot DJ's "Feather" is the motif for the sheet design of "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION〝3〟『PHANTOM』"
"ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION『PHANTOM』" is designed with the image of Ace's "Flame" and "Accessory."
As for "ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION『MARIONETTE』", the theme of "Marionette" and Caesar's "Gas" was used for its design.
The color of each sheet's lighting also has a meaning.（Even with the lighting on "Wall of Luffy"!）
Furthermore, phrases from "PHANOTM ～ promise ～" were hidden on the flooring sheets as well. Did you notice?
*translation: "This world will continue to move"
*translation: "We are here 'cause we have lived in the present, so let's keep smiling, let's keep smiling."
If you look veeeeeery closely, the song phrases were hidden within as if it is part of the design!
Which means, the complete lyrics of "PHANTOM ~promise~" was hidden both on the wall and on the floor.
After walking through while looking down, let us now look up to the ceiling...
You'll find the pictures displayed in the film-like design!
You're gonna want to take a close look at each picture, even if your neck gets hurt!
In fact, there is an individual theme for the selection of photos for each film.
If you know the storyline of each production, you may be able to figure it out!
Let's lit the stone! Lighting Stone Spot
And now, the 10000th Anniversary Memorial message board/photo spot designed by our guests was a great excitement!
This display panel first started with the lighting stones lit be the current 18 performance cast.
On here, more lighting stones were added with special messages written by everyone, and ...
...the lighting stone panel was lit up very brightly!
This area became a heartwarming spot created by the WARM messages and illustrations written by our guest celebrating the 10000th Anniversary!!
Thank you very much!!!
