Pirated "One Piece" Theme Park Planned in China

Unsanctioned project already under construction

China's coastal city of China's Dafeng is the planned site for a US$76 million One Piece theme park being built on a 133-hectare plot of land. True to the anime/manga that inspired it, it's from a city one the water, and, true to the source material, the intellectual property in question is being pirated. 

 

Initial reports were that the project had the proper connections to Japanese rights holders, but after speaking with manga publisher Shueisha, RocketNews learned that the already under construction attraction is not officially sanctioned.
