news culture One Piece Red: A great start for the most anticipated animated film of the year in France!
The fifteenth movie of the One Piece saga has just hit theaters in France and we are lucky enough to be able to discover it in cinemas just a few days after its launch in Japan. French fans reacted massively to One Piece’s reputation!
A rushed and then celebrated start
If no one doubted The success of the fifteenth animated feature film dedicated to the One Piece franchise promises to be even more memorable than expected. However, not everything always went smoothly at this event launch, because the impatience of some fans sometimes turned into collective hysteria. The day before the film’s launch, some screenings turned into a disaster right after the previews by causing unacceptable rudeness and outbursts. Cinemas therefore need to attend sneak previews before things get out of hand so that the vast majority of viewers can enjoy the event in peace. Happily, Fans continue to respond and most screenings are spared from overflowing
A nice birthday present
Not satisfied with celebrating the 25th anniversary of the manga, the movie One piece red also promised fans of Eiichirô Oda’s work to bring some important revelations as the series prepares for its final installment. The manga’s author had actually announced that the story would soon be entering its final stages, so fans are on the lookout for the smallest little element that could enrich the franchise’s universe. One Piece Red is particularly interested in the case of Shanks le Roux’s daughter, although that parenthood has never been mentioned before.
