Trafalgar Law is the user of the Ope Ope no Mi, which allows him to dismember people from a distance without harming them, lift or displace objects of any size and switch peoples’ hearts (and thus their personalities) – as long as you’re within the confines of a blue spherical space he conjures.

At the Osaka leg of Eiichiro, you can experience for yourself what that’s like.

A life-sized figure of Trafalgar Law will be exhibited in a special “Punk Hazard Arc” experience corner, not featured at the One Piece Exhibition’s original run in Tokyo, and through the use of cutting-edge imaging technologies projected onto the figure, the corner will attempt to simulate what it might be like to witness Law’s  Ope Ope no Mi (Op-op Fruit) ability in action.

Outside of the Osaka-exclusive Punk Hazard Arc corner, all of the exhibits from the One Piece Exhibition’s Tokyo leg, held from March to June of this year, will be displayed as well. Most of these exhibit installations were themed after the Fishman Island Arc that was covered in the manga series’ volumes 61 to 66.

Here are images of four of the installations from the Tokyo run. From left to right: “Comics Gallery”, “Bouken (Adventure) Panorama Theatre”, “Nightmare of Impel Down”, and “The Place Where ‘One Piece’ was Born”.

The Punk Hazard Arc, on the other hand, takes place from volumes 66 to the currently on-going chapter in Japan. Outside of the Trafalgar Law installation, concept art or original sketches for the Punk Hazard Arc will also be displayed at the Osaka exhibition.

Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece Exhibition in Osaka will be held at the Osaka Tempou Special Installation Gallery [大阪天保山特設ギャラリー(海遊館となり)] (mapfan, Google Maps) from 24 November 2012 to 17 February 2013. The exhibition is seven days a week, from 10AM to 8PM daily.

From now till October 31, fans can visit and the exhibition’s official website to vote for one of 35 shortlisted pieces of illustration taken from the One Piece manga series. Prints of the winning illustration will be sold at the Osaka exhibition.
