"SMAP x SMAP" to decide the 'King of ONE PIECE' once again!


Popular variety television show "SMAP x SMAP' will be hosting a special "Entertainment World King of ONE PIECE ~Deciding Match~" episode on August 1st!

This is the first time that a "King of ONE PIECE" match will be held on the show after nearly half a year. SMAP's Kimura Takuya, the current "King of ONE PIECE" commented, "Of course, I always come full-power. As someone who everyone recognizes, the pressure to become king is pretty strong, since people who love ONE PIECE always enjoy seeing who the "ONE PIECE King" will be." He continued, "And also - coupled with the pressure of the rookies coming to steal my throne - it makes me nervous. So because of that, I won't put my defenses up only halfway!!"

Since the special began in 2010, celebrities have come together three times to answer questions about the popular anime and manga to prove how much of a fan they are. Kimura was the first celebrity to win, followed by comedian/actor Kobayashi Kendo as the second king.

The match held on August 1st will feature Kimura Takuya, Sama Chizu's Mimura Masakazu, FUNKY MONKEY BABYS' Funky Kato, Nankai Candies' Yamasato Ryouta, both members of the comedy duo Hanya, and AKB48 members Takahashi Minami, Kitahara Rie, and Sashihara Rino. Representing viewers who have never read or watched "ONE PIECE" is SMAP's own Inagaki Goro and Kusanagi Tsuyoshi, who will watch over the fun competition.

The winner of the fierce battle will win an exclusive message from main character Luffy, "Skypiea" from the ONE PIECE DVD series "Log Collection", and a collection of figurines that are sure to make any ONE PIECE fan jealous.

The "King of ONE PIECE" match will be broadcast within "SMAP x SMAP"'s normal broadcasting time on August 1st.
