One Piece Film Red


One Piece Film Red continues to sail through Japanese theaters each week, staying at the top of the box office rankings and enjoying its historic theatrical run. To give back to those going to see the film, over 200,000 versions of Film Red Shanks Onepi no Mi figure will be given out to theatergoers. While the figure may be small, it’s still unable to contain the hulking body that is Film Red Shanks. 


To celebrate the announcement, a new bounty poster of Shanks drawn by Eiichiro Oda was also released.

One Piece Film Red opened in Japanese theaters on August 6. 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.


The One Piece TV anime is also still going strong, with over 1,000 episodes of the series streaming right here on Crunchyroll and new episodes coming out each week as they air in Japan.
