One Piece Film: Red is officially a hit at the Japanese box office, but the promotions are far from over. The latest campaign has the film teaming up with lingerie brand Peach John for some special nighttime attire inspired by One Piece. The photos include Japan’s top cosplayer Enako dressed up as Uta, Nami and Robin, so check out a quick peek at the line below.
Considering the fact that it’s lingerie, you should expect some very mildly NSFW images.
Special Chopper bag:
Currently up for pre-order from Peach John’s mail-order site right now, the items will get a full release on September 21.
One Piece Film: Red stars Shanks’ daughter Uta, who is voiced by Kaori Nazuka (speaking) and Ado (singing). The theme song “Shinjidai” (translated as “New Genesis”) is also sung by Ado.
The movie will eventually make it to American theaters sometime this autumn, where it will be available to watch both dubbed and subbed. Crunchyroll will also be releasing it in theaters in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Creator Eiichiro Oda is involved with One Piece Film Red as the executive producer. The movie is directed by Goro Taniguchi, who previously worked on One Piece: Defeat The Pirate Ganzak! The screenplay was written by Tsutomu Kuroiwa, who has also worked on One Piece Film Gold and One Piece: Heart of Gold.
One Piece is the most successful manga ever, and it’s spun off into an anime series and multiple movies. VIZ Media publishes the original manga, and gave this description of the first volume:
“As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer ‘Red-Haired’ Shanks. But his life changed when Luffy accidentally ate the Gum-Gum Devil Fruit and gained the power to stretch like rubber…at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, still vowing to become the king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his adventure…one guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary ‘One Piece,’ said to be the greatest treasure in the world…”
