Ado wants everyone to look forward to their future activities, starting with the United States and then focusing on expanding around the world.



If you want to hear Ado bring Uta’s songs to life in One Piece Film Red, Crunchyroll will be releasing the film in English-speaking countries this November, starting with Australia and New Zealand on November 3 and then the United States and Canada on November 4. Crunchyroll describes the seafaring musical adventure as such:


Uta—the most beloved singer in the world whose voice has been described as “otherworldly”—is renowned for concealing her own identity when performing. Now, for the first time ever, she will reveal herself to the world at a live concert.


With the Navy watching closely, the venue fills with Uta’s fans—including excited pirates and the Straw Hats led by Luffy, who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance—all eagerly awaiting the voice that the whole world has been waiting for to resound. The story begins with the shocking revelation that she is the enigmatic Shanks’ daughter.
