‘One Piece Film: Red’ Gets Anime Series Promo Opener

So One Piece Movie: Red just debuted in Japan, and this anime movie will soon debut in NA. The animated series certainly took notice. That’s why they just released a special opening for a new set of episodes that depict Luffy and Uta’s past. Check it out below:

A special opening for a great prequel?

No, this video is not NSFW. It’s only sensible in terms of potential spoilers.

Official One Piece Spoiler Twitter account has just published a special opening for the A play animated series above. As you can see, this special opening is basically a promotion of the last A play Animation Film : One Piece Movie: Red. The special opening even includes a very nice song by the main character Uta. Kaori Nazuka voices Uta, but not for her singing voice. That honor goes to Ado, and as you can tell by Uta’s song throughout the opening special, there’s a reason Ado is her singing voice. His deep, almost contralto voice is pleasant enough to listen to, and I’d be very excited to hear more of it in the current animated movie.

Now you might all be wondering: why the A play anime series is showing this special opening now? Well, according to comicsit looks like the anime has something special to promote One Piece Movie: Red. Apparently they’re taking a break from the Wano arc to focus on Luffy and Uta’s past in a series of special episodes. These specials begin with Season 13, Episode 1029. There is currently only one special so far, but more are likely on the way. You can check out these special episodes, along with the rest of the anime, at Crunchyroll Where Funimation.

One Piece Movie: Red ~ Details

If the quality of the song and that key art is something to go on, then this animated film looks good.

One Piece Movie: Red is the 15th and last animated film of the A play anime film series, part of the fantasy adventure anime adaptation manga of the same name by Eichiro Oda. You Animation (dragonball, Digimon, Precure) is the animation studio behind this animated film. Gorō Taniguchi is directing, Tsutomu Kuroiwa writing the screenplay and Eiichiro Oda himself producing. In fact, this particular anime film is the most animated film Oda has participated in, so it’s practically canon. Yasutaka Nakata composed the music.

As to what One Piece Movie: Red is about? Well, Crunchyroll has an official synopsis for that. Check it out below:

Uta, the most beloved singer in the world. Renowned for concealing her own identity during her performances, her voice has come to be described as “otherworldly”. Now, for the very first time, Uta will reveal herself to the world in a live concert. As the room fills with all kinds of Uta fans – excited pirates, the navy watching closely, and the Straw Hats led by Luffy who have simply come to enjoy his sonic performance – the voice that the whole world been waiting for is about to resound. The story begins with the shocking fact that she is Shanks’ daughter.

One Piece Movie: Red will make his first NA in the course of Fall 2022.
