Names[edit | edit source]

Many names are translated from their original Japanese forms to Swedish. For example, Kokoro is named Hjärta (Heart) in Swedish and Mr. 2 Bon Kurei is named Herr 2 Hägg 'o' Syrén which means "Mr 2 Bird cherry 'n' lilac". The latter's name is in fact derived from the Swedish expression "mellan hägg och syrén" ("Between bird cherry and lilac") which refers to a time of the year between the blooming of bird cherry and lilac. This is meant to correspond to the character's Japanese name, Bon Kurei (Bon Kurei being a night in the Obon festival). Also, some of the characters' names are spelled differently in Swedish, for example, Luffy is named Ruffy. Several characters are re-named for seemingly unknown reasons (such as Brook becoming Brukk–however, this can be because "Brukk" in Swedish is pronounced the same way as "Brook" is pronounced in English–or the Supernova Apoo becoming Pao).

Manga[edit | edit source]

Swedish Volume 66 of One Piece, "Vägen som leder mot solen".

In Sweden, One Piece has been published as a manga since 2003. As of volume 36, its publishing house, Bonnier Carlsen, decided to publish One Piece at most six times a year to not catch up with the Japanese release of the manga. The editing of the manga is sometimes viewed as careless.

The Swedish manga expert and translator Simon Lundström translated the first 54 volumes from Japanese to Swedish. After that, Swedish manga translator Magnus Johansson took over the translating job, and has translated all the volumes up to Volume 65, before Simon Lundström started translating again as of Volume 66 after he had won the Manga-case.

SBS is translated as well, but it is renamed "LBFJ" ("Läsarbrev från Japan", meaning "Reader mail from Japan").

The Swedish volumes uses the German cover designs and even sound effects, since the publishers edit the German translation rather than the original Japanese version and only a few sound effects are translated into Swedish. This is because the publishing house Bonnier Carlsen cooperates with the German publishing house of the same name. However, the manga is translated from Japanese rather than from German (unlike the Swedish version of Dragon Ball), and with an exception for Luffy, the names of the characters are not the same as in the German version.

The Sweden publishing of One Piece has ended as of Volume 66 due to strong declining sales.[citation needed] Initially it was planned for the whole series to be translated, but the assumption that this would be possible was made during a period of time when manga sold well in Sweden and the publishers didn't anticipate the eventual length of the series.

Anime[edit | edit source]

The anime is yet to be shown on TV, and it is unlikely that it will ever happen. The FUNimation DVDs (as well as Movie 8) however, are being released at some stores, the most known one where the DVDs are being sold the most is Science Fiction Bokhandeln (The Science Fiction Bookstore). The DVDs are currently at season 3.
