“One Piece Film Red” It opens very shortly, so very soon that it will be next week in Japan. Yes, in the rest of the world we will have to wait as usual and in fact for Spain we already have some first details about it. However, and although it was predictable to a certain extent, what absolutely nothing had been said was how the premiere of the film was going to affect the weekly anime of “One Piece”… to this day.
This is how the premiere of One Piece Film Red will affect the weekly anime
Next I leave you with the tweet from the hand of NewWorldArtur which has been responsible for collecting, in effect, the impact of the premiere of the feature film on the episodic broadcast:
Thus, what is explained in the tweet in question is as simple as the following:
- Basically, it has been confirmed that episodes 1029 and 1030 of the One Piece anime will be filler chapters in relation to the story of One Piece Film Red. ❗
- In Japan, the film opens on August 6, while these episodes will be broadcast on August 14 and 21. ❗
- Namely, in Japan they will have already seen One Piece Film Red and will have the necessary context to better understand what the episodes explain, while in the West… well, no. ✔️
- at least it is known the title of episode 1030: ‘The promise of a new era! luffy and uta‘, so at first one seems to be able to assume that they will be contextual episodes about the past relationship of both characters. ✔️
In case there are doubts, at first everything that is going to be narrated in “One Piece Film Red” will be taken as NOT canon, since it has been the trend with 99% of the content of the films of the franchise to date. Obviously, it’s curious that this movie and the Shanks brand come when the character is being used so much to promote the final stretch of the manga. At first I would stay in that position, but I would not be surprised if the opposite was eventually announced.
