One Piece: RED introduces a mysterious new character

A few months before its release in Japan, the film One Piece: Red offers a (short) first teaser.

One Piece will blow out its 25th candle this summer. To celebrate this anniversary as it should, the saga offers a new incursion on the big screen. A feature film directed by Goro Taniguchi, which promises to explore Shanks le Roux’s destiny in more detail. Character adored by the public, he will obviously reveal many secrets to us.

While a first very short teaser was shared last November, One Piece: RED returns with another sequence, this time less enigmatic. These are images taken from the footage, which are particularly interested in a character hitherto unknown to the spectators.

Shanks’ daughter at the heart of the plot

This is Uta who, we learn from these images, is the daughter of the mythical Shanks. The description of the video is a little more talkative, since it places it in the universe. “Her name is Uta, the best diva in the world. His voice will change the whole world”. Obviously, the plot will revolve around a concert organized by the young woman, her first.

Among the spectators, we obviously find excited pirates, the Navy who watches over the grain, but also and above all the Straw Hats led by Luffy who come to enjoy the sound performance. However, we will probably have to wait a little longer to find out more.

One Piece: RED still gives us very little to chew on. After all, the release is not for now. In Japan, the date is set for August 6. For the time being, we do not know when it will be possible to discover it in France. We will have to hope that the film quickly finds a release window in France, and that it is not too far from the Japanese release.

Volume 101 soon on newsstands

In the meantime, piracy enthusiasts can occupy their minds with the upcoming release of Volume 101 of the saga on paper. Glénat has already announced the release date, we will have to wait until May 4 next.

Convinced that Luffy will return to the battlefield and defeat Kaido, his comrades continue the fight against the lieutenants of the Hundred Beasts Crew. Meanwhile, on the Onigashima dome, Yamato tries to make his father pay for everything he put him through.”

Note that it is already possible to pre-order it on the Glénat website, at the price of €6.90.
