As a movie tie-in, it takes some beating. One Piece Film Red has been released as the manga comic strip on which it is based celebrates 25 years of existence and its 1000th published episode, every one of which has been authored by Eiichiro Oda, executive producer of the new film. Think about that. There are people who have grown up with One Piece which has also run as a weekly television series since 1999 — and there have been 14 films in the franchise before this one.
That adds up to a tremendous number of characters with bizarre back stories – and many millions of fans, not all of them in Japan. One Piece Film Red has topped the Japanese box office for 12 weeks, is the biggest movie of 2022 there and just opened at number two in North America.
