Although he was coldly received by French fans of One Piecethe film One Piece Red was a hit at the Japanese box office. But beware, it is far from being the favorite film of the Japanese. And it’s not either Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero !

One Piece Red : adored film or shunned film?

2022 is a very special year for the license One Piece. At the start of the year, there were already more than 516.5 million copies of the manga sold worldwide.. It was also this year that we had a hack of the Toei, which broadcasts the anime One Piece. The pirates promised, against ransom, not to broadcast the episodes still unreleased at the time. Since the release of volume 100 in December 2021, the pace has accelerated considerably and the plot has progressed at breakneck speed. It is becoming increasingly important to protect yourself from spoilers. So when the RATP releases a huge spoiler without pressurefans naturally expressed their anger.

However this is not the series that fans of One Piece in 2022. This is indeed the release of the highly anticipated film One Piece Red. This film will be a colossal success in cinemas in Japan and France, with overflows as important as those experienced by the film Demon Slayer at his time. A controversy had also erupted, believing that fans of One Piece were unable to stand. On his side, the management of the Grand Rex declared to “assume” the overflows in its rooms, defending the spectators. And yet, with the hindsight of the retrospectives of this end of the year 2022, it is not One Piece Red that fans have chosen as the best film from a manga released in 2022. In Japan, the media Anime! Anime! launched a major opinion poll in order to elect the favorite film of the fans. Without further surprises, here is the ranking in its entirety:

Manga: surprisingly successful films?

So it is indeed the film Detective Conan which wins the prize for the best animated film from a manga in 2022 ! One Piece only arrives 6th, but fortunately ahead of that of Sword Art Onlinesaving his honor. The Bride of Halloween is the 25th film of the license Detective Conan. If the episodes are available in France, almost all of the manga’s success is in Japan. The license is as big as One Piece -102 volumes currently- but sometimes ranks well above other Shonen in Japanese preference rankings. For example, the literary medium davinci considered it in 2012 as the 5th best manga ever published. The complex characters, the often well-crafted plots and the more “mature” character of the manga are the main qualities highlighted.

To explain the classification ofAnime! Anime! (in full and in Japanese here), we can be interested in the public who participated in the survey. Of the 313 people interviewed, 71.9% are women. And 40.3% of voters are under 19, 15% between 20 and 24, 12.5% ​​between 25 and 29 and 32.2% are over 30.. The survey remained open for ten days, from December 2 to December 13. It is therefore mostly adolescent girls who participated in this survey. This may explain the high presence of licenses Uta no Prince-sama, The Quintessential Quintupletsworks with a fanbase composed mainly of women.
