Shanks has beefed up for his appearance in One Piece Film: Red, the latest film in the long-running anime franchise inspired by the manga from Eiichiro Oda, and to match his new appearance, the man who is more muscle than pirate now will be appearing on the cover of women's lifestyle magazine anan.

The next issue of anan, which releases in Japan on August 24, also has two three-way discussions, one with the voice actors: Mayumi Tanaka (Luffy), Kaori Nazuka (Uta) and Shuichi Ikeda (Shanks), and then another with the crew: director Goro Taniguchi, Uta's singing voice Ado and actor Yuki Yamada (Eboshi), who also helped provide some music for the film. There are also interviews with Motohiro Hata, Mrs. GREEN APPLE and Vaundy, all of whom worked with Ado on collaboration songs for One Piece Film: Red.

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.
