Jinbe continues to proudly display his influences in ancient Japan
One Piece Red is the next film that will take place in the universe created by Eiichiro Oda and will focus on Shanks “The Redhead”, one of the Four Emperors who rule the New World who was also a member of the legendary crew of Gol D. Roger , the former Pirate King. Due to its importance in the story, it is interesting to see how the Mugiwara are being incorporated into the style that they will have with Shanks as Jinbe, the helmsman.

Without a doubt, one of the most anticipated is this production that will arrive in Japan at the end of the summer of 2022 if there are no delays.
To prepare his fans, the official twitter account from One Piece Red shared an image showing how Jinbe will look in the movie, he is the helmsman of the crew and the last member to join the Straw Hat Pirates. He is a whale shark fish-man, who served as a former captain of the Sun Pirates and as a member of the Seven Warlords of the Sea.
As we can see, it maintains its inspiration in Traditional Japan, but gives it an unexpected twist. Well, in addition to his characteristic elements such as his ponytail, tattoos and clothing, add leather garments reminiscent of the Japanese motorcycle gang gangs that were very popular during the last century. If you have ever seen Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, a very clear example of this trend is Jotaro Kujo, its protagonist.
