One Piece Film: Red


One Piece Film: Red isn't the only work topping charts right now, with one of Uta's songs from the film "New Genesis," performed by award-winning Japanese artist Ado as Uta, topping Apple Music's Global Top 100 charts, making it the number one song in the world! Ado's official Twitter account announced that the single was on the top of the rankings tonight (as was separately confirmed in a different region), beating out songs from Beyoncé and DJ Khalid.





Remember, this ranking is the global charts, not just Japan alone where One Piece Film: Red is currently screening.

One Piece Film: Red opened in Japanese theaters on August 6. Crunchyroll, who'll be releasing the film internationally across the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand sometime this fall, describes the seafaring musical adventure as such:


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 reveal 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.


The One Piece TV anime is also still going strong, with over 1,000 episodes of the series streaming right here on Crunchyroll, with new episodes coming out as they air in Japan.
