By now I think it’s safe to say One Piece is something of a household name, especially for those interested or living in Japan as well as other parts of Asia. Not only has it become the best-selling manga and book in all of Japan, it’s spawned multiple movies, a new theme park, and even a cruise. But what do you know about the man behind all of this success?
We’ve got the scoop on a huge party One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda threw at his house last week, thanks to tweets sent out by a few of the VIPs on the guest list. Apparently even manga geniuses need to let loose every now and then!

Are you an anime fan? Do you watch Japanese anime in their original Japanese dialogue? If your answer is “yes” for both questions, then you’ve probably had the experience of picking up on a familiar-sounding voice in a certain anime, Googling to uncover the seiyuu (voice actor in Japanese) behind the character, and then realizing that you’ve actually seen quite a few titles he or she has starred in.
Twitter users in Japan have been digging through the Internet for some drastically different performances from the same voice actor/actress, and sharing their surprising finds on Twitter. Check them out after the break!

If you’re a fan of anime, you probably have a favorite voice actor or two, be they English-speaking or the original Japanese seiyuu. But how many of you are familiar with the Japanese people behind Hayao Miyazaki’s animated characters? As it turns out, professional voice actors are seldom used in the making of Miyazaki’s films. In fact, some of the voices behind the father characters aren’t even actors at all, with the likes of journalists and copywriters even being used to fill key roles.
