Following the special we had around Nami, FujiTV announced that a television anime special, One Piece Episode of Luffy: Hand Island no Bōken (One Piece Episode of Luffy: The Hand Island Adventure), will air on Saturday, December 15 at 9:00 p.m. One Piece anime airs on Sunday mornings.
These specials serve as a tie in for the upcoming movie One Piece Z, which premieres also on December 15. Author Eichiro Oda is supervising the scripts.
The story of the Hand Island no Bōken special is set a little before the events of One Piece Film Z and depicts a major "Hand Island" incident during the New World storyline. The story is set at "Cannon Town" where a parent and a child work as craftspeople. The incident revolves around them and a commodore of a marine base. The special will also have a flashback scene to the story in the first chapter of the manga, but with new animation.
The British tabloid newspaper Daily Mail reported on Friday that a 14-year-old Russian boy committed suicide after seeing a character in the Naruto Shippūden anime die. According to the paper, Leonid Hmelev leapt more than 100 feet (30 meters) from an apartment building and died instantly.
The newspaper reported that Hmelev was devastated after seeing the death of the character Itachi Uchiha (The death first appeared in the original Naruto manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2008.) Daily Mail said that Hmelev left a message about "planning an ending" on a social networking site.
After his parents reported him missing, they and their neighbors searched for him and found his body two days later on November 1. The Daily Mail reported that his 38-year-old father Ivan said, "I always told him he spent too much time watching the TV - he didn't know what was reality and what was fiction anymore."
UNICEF and The New York Times reports that Russia has the third highest rate — 22 per 100,000 — of teenage suicide after Belarus and Kazakhstan.

There are cases, and then cases of cases, I guess.
The official website for Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Blade magazine has announced that Taishi Tsutsui's (Esprit, Fukashigi Philia) Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no Sweets Honey spinoff manga will return to the magazine in a new manga titled Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no Sweets Honey Final.
The new series will premiere in the magazine's January 2013 issue shipping on November 30.
The tone of the series is slapstick comedy compared to the more serious overtones of the anime, but even the anime had its great funny moments :D
