One Piece returns to theaters with its best movie to date and we review the 5 great reasons why you should not miss it.
The wait has come to an end. One Piece returns to theaters with what could be its best and most important film to date. A film that comes to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Eiichiro Oda's work and that seems essential to better understand Shanks. A character as mysterious as it is important within it, and especially now that we are heading towards the final stretch of the history. So that you understand why it is on everyone's lips. We are going to review the 5 great reasons why no one should miss One Piece Film RED.
It has just started its commercial career outside of Japan. But One Piece Film RED is already living history in Japanese cinema. To begin with, it is his highest-grossing film of 2022, a milestone after other great releases. Such as Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero have been harvested this year.
Currently, One Piece Film: Red is not streaming anywhere online. But it is also that One Piece Film RED is also among the five highest-grossing Japanese films of all time. We repeat, OF ALL HISTORY. And as we said, this has just begun.
The only doubt that remains around One Piece Film RED is whether. It will reach that prestigious podium made up of Your Name (bronze), Spirited Away (silver) and Night Watch: Infinity Train (gold). This is already like the battle between Avatar and The Avengers. An unstoppable phenomenon that everyone will remember and of which it is worth forming an opinion. Are you going to stay without contributing to the record and without knowing who will hold it?.
He is the man who gave Luffy his straw hat. The person who pushed him into the arms of piracy. The last Emperor of the Old Era. The pirate with the highest bounty of those left alive in history (4,048,900,000 berries).
The character he doesn't want to duel with, not even Mihawk himself, the proclaimed best swordsman in One Piece. The human with the highest haki level since Gol D. Roger, aka the Pirate King. And all that without an arm and without devil fruits involved. In short, Shanks is a bad ass.
According to Eiichiro Oda, the author of One Piece, Shanks is one of his favorite. Characters and the one who inherits the most personality traits from him. According to Goro Taniguchi, the director of Film RED, he is as important a figure in the story as Luffy.
He's barely had a dozen appearances in the 25-year life of the manga, but what an appearance. Each and every one of them was burned into our retina, just as it happens with his appearance in the film.
Shanks and his gang are by far the best part of the film. They have the best confrontation of it (against two Vice Admirals!). His story with Uta is moving and contains a revelation about his person that could be key in the final stretch of the series. Spectacular.
It's official: "One Piece Film Red" is now available in theaters in Spain. Last week, did I go to the press screening that Selecta Vision set up to see the film in Barcelona? Yes. Did I go to the cinema again yesterday to be able to see it in the company of my nakamas? Also.
Because indeed, "One Piece Film Red" is a film that is really worth it. Both for the feature film itself and for the display that Selecta Vision is making, even with live performances. In the end, it has all translated into monumental success.
It is also important to note that he took the lead on a Thursday (obviously this applies to the other films as well). What I want to say exactly is that I hope that Friday will also be a very strong day, yes. It will be necessary to see if it manages to remain solid during the following days, because usually in Spain anime films deflate considerably after the initial results.
The One Piece fandom had been waiting for a long time for the new feature film in the saga created by Eiichirô Oda. And therefore it is not surprising that One Piece Film Red has become one of the most watched premieres in recent days.
One Piece Film Red premiered in Spanish theaters last Thursday, November 3, to give us joy after the end of the bridge. In just a couple of days, the new film by Gorô Taniguchi has been in first place at the Spanish box office.
These days, the new One Piece movie was only competing with another anime. Shin Chan and the Mystery of Tenkasu Academy, but the film had already been on the bill for several weeks and could not beat the popularity of the pirates.
Behind One Piece Film Red, we find Black Adam, the new DC movie starring Dwayne Johnson. And in third position is The Fourth Passenger by Álex de la Iglesia.
Many news and many revealing data are coming out thanks to the publication of the interview. With Tsutomu Kuroiwa on the Japanese portal of One Piece Film Red. This time, two of the most popular villains of the work, Donquixote Doflamingo and Crocodile, have sparked debate in the networks.
Although it sounds somewhat difficult to believe, in one of the questions. Kuroiwa reveals an idea that Eiichiro Oda wanted to include for the film. The author of One Piece wanted to include Donquixote Doflamingo and Crocodile. Kuroiwa claims that he refused because he wanted to give more prominence to the story between Shanks and Uta. One of the reasons is that this structure of having multiple major villains was already used in One Piece: Stampede.
This has divided the community a bit, as it is said that Doflamingo and Crocodile could have brought. A lot of potential to the plot due to the alleged theories related to Shanks in One Piece. However, it is understandable that the writer decided to reject the idea to differentiate himself from the previous film.
Amazon Prime is fantastic several people raise very interesting. Questions for the future of One Piece thanks to this interview. Questions that really make theorists and fans in the community think. Could this be an idea that you decide to include in the future for an upcoming movie? Does this increase the odds of a historical relationship between Doflamingo, Crocodile and Shanks?
