One Piece RED, the Shanks movie
The synopsis of One Piece RED reads thus: “The Straw Hats, the Navy and millions of music lovers from all over the world gather to enjoy the voice of Uta, the star of the Elegy Island Music Festival. But what was going to be a normal concert will be transformed into something completely different when Luffy appears on the scene and it is discovered that Uta is actually the daughter of Shanks“.
The film will focus on the mysterious figure of Shanks and Oda himself has referred to her in these terms: “If Uta is the daughter of Shanks, why isn’t he with his father? What kind of life has he had? Maybe it’s being time to discover several truths about the so-called “Great Pirate Akagami no Shanks”. Isn’t Oda paving the way for Shanks to become the final villain of One Piece?
Will the mangaka have been able to mark a Naruto and Hinata and will he have left the reunion with Shanks to show it on the big screen? Will the film raise blisters by being canon and essential to the story? Knock on wood and hopefully not, but there is little left to find out.
