Well, that lost straw hat in the bottom doesn’t look ominous at all.

One Piece Film: Red ~ Details

I love musical films, and this is apparently no exception judging from Uta’s incredible voicework.

One Piece Film: Red is the 15th anime film in the One Piece anime film series. Said anime film series is part of the anime adaptation of the manga of the same name by Eiichiro Oda. This particular anime film features Gorō Taniguchi as the director, with Eiichiro Oda himself as the executive producer, character designer, and script reviewer. In fact, this is apparently the most active Oda has ever been part of any One Piece anime film. Lastly, Toei Animation is producing and distributing this anime film.

As for what One Piece Film: Red is about? Well, Crunchyroll and Toei Animation have an official synopsis for us today. Check it out below:

“Uta —the most beloved singer in the world. Renowned for concealing her own identity when performing, her voice has come to be described as “otherworldly.” Now, for the first time ever, Uta will herself to the world at a live concert. As the venue fills with all kinds of Uta fans —excited pirates, the Navy watching closely, and the Straw Hats led by Luffy who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance —the voice that the whole world has been waiting for is about to resound. The story begins with the shocking fact that she is Shanks’ daughter.”
