‘One Piece Film: Red’ Reaches JPY 19.7 Billion for Domestic and 31.9 Billion for Worldwide Box Office Revenue! Oda Eiichiro Comments “It’s Time to Close the Curtains.”

Date: 2023-01-31
"One Piece Film: Red," the latest theatrical version of the "One Piece" series, has grossed 19.7 billion yen with more than 14.27 million viewers in its first 177 days of release. The worldwide box-office revenue reached 31.9 billion yen. "One Piece" is a maritime adventure based on the boys' manga by Oda Eiichiro, which has been serialized in "Weekly Shonen Jump" since July 1997. It is a popular work that has spawned numerous cross-media works and merchandise, with events being held without interruption. In 2021, the work reached 1,000 episodes in the anime and 100 volumes for the manga, with July 22, 2022, marking the 25th anniversary of the series. The latest film, "One Piece Film: Red," released on August 6, 2022, depicts a story that begins with the shocking revelation that the world's most beloved singer, Uta, is Shanks' daughter. Opening on August 6 with a rocket start, the film drew 1.57 million viewers and grossed over 2.25 billion yen in the first two days. The film continued to break records without slowing down, and on August 25, the 20th day of its release, it surpassed the 10 billion yen mark at the box office. The film ended its run on January 29, 2023, with box-office revenue of 19.7 billion yen and an attendance of 14.27 million viewers in its 177 days of operation. This record ranks 8th on the all-time domestic film box-office revenue list. The overseas box office totaled 12.2 billion yen (as of January 27, at 129.48 yen to the dollar), bringing the worldwide box office total to 31.9 billion yen. To commemorate this milestone, Oda Eiichiro, the author of the original manga, released a visual celebrating the 31.9 billion yen mark at the worldwide box office, with Luffy covering his eyes with his hands and a big smile on his face. Having run for six months, the film held a grand finale party on January 28, the day before the end of its run. To express their gratitude, the Straw Hat crew including Tanaka Mayumi and Nazuka Kaori, who plays Uta, gathered for the event. On January 29, the last day of the movie, many fans went to the movie theaters. Some expressed their gratitude and sadness to the end of the movie on social media, "Thank you for such a wonderful six months! It was the best movie ever! I hope it will be premiered again someday," and "This is the first time I've been to the theater 18 times to see the same movie. It makes me sad that I can no longer see it in theaters…" (C) Oda Eiichiro/2022 ‘One Piece’ Production Committee

natsume, the Chinese cosplayer with 220,000 followers on Twitter, charms in a voluptuous costume! She is Akatsuki from "Lost Decade"

Date: 2020-06-30
The Chinese cosplayer natsume-san is one of the top cosplayers who has reached 220,000 followers on Twitter by showing many sexy costumes. She actively participates in events in Japan such as Comic Market, and has always attracted a lot of attention. However, due to the current situation, she lost touch with her Japanese fans, which is regrettable. This time we had a direct interview with Natsume. She also shows us some of her latest unpublished shots for her Japanese fans. --Were you planning to come to Japan in May? natsume: That's right, I was supposed to be there in May for the Comic Market to show my new costume, but unfortunately the event was canceled... --What kind of cosplay works are popular in the Chinese cosplay world at the moment? natsume: "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba". I've heard it's incredibly popular in Japan, but it's also very popular in China and in other countries! There's a lot of cosplay as well. --What are some of the Japanese works that you're into? natsume: There are a lot of them, but "Kaguya-sama: Love Is War" "Persona 5", and "Final Fantasy VII" are always my favorite! --In terms of cosplay, what kind of characters have you recently made? natsume: Recently, I've been working on Pecorine from "Princess Connect! Re:Dive", Enoshima Junko from "Danganronpa", Android 18 from "Dragon Ball", and Akatsuki from "Lost Decade". Most of them are already on Twitter! --This time you have published a shot of Akatsuki, can you please tell us how was working on it? natsume: Akatsuki was a very difficult costume to put on because it had a lot of detailed decorations. It took me about an hour and a half to finally get it on with the help of my friends. But the shoot went really well, it only took 30 minutes and it was fun! --What do you like about cosplay? natsume: Like for all the works I've just mentioned, when I come across works and characters that I like, I want to cosplay them. And there are also a lot of works that have become my all-time favorites because of cosplaying (laugh). --Finally, please tell us your future goals! natsume: I want to work hard to make money for doing cosplay. When the current situation will be over, I definitely want to go to Japan with a lot of my cosplay works, so I'll do my best. I look forward to seeing you at the Comic Market this winter!
