One Piece Film Red opened in Japanese theaters on August 6 and currently holds the record of the 11th highest-grossing film of all time in the country with 17.1 billion yen (US$122.70 million) made. 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.
