According to Crunchyroll’s Japan Correspondent Daryl Harding, the newest One Piece film couldn’t beat Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: The Mugen Train’s opening record at 3.3 Billion Yen, but it took down Jujutsu Kaisen 0’s 1.6 Billion Yen record which was the former 2nd Place holder.

Toei, who is distributing the film in Japan, claimed on Saturday that they were aiming for the “highest-grossing start in the series.” It is clear to say that the goal was met.

ONE PIECE FILM: RED is now playing in Japan with an international release planned thanks to Crunchyroll this fall, and a special crossover with the anime starting on August 14th.

Uta — the most beloved singer in the world. Her voice, which she sings with while concealing her true identity, has been described as “otherworldly.” She will appear in public for the first time 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.”
