It's been over 100 days since One Piece Film Red opened in Japanese theaters, starting the rollout that would see Uta take over the world through song. To celebrate the occasion, the official YouTube channel released a moving video looking back at the anime film's historic rise through Japan and the world, set to "New Genesis" by Uta of course.

One Piece Film Red opened in Japanese theaters on August 6 and has since made 18.04 billion yen (US$129.12 million) at the box office. Crunchyroll released the film in English-speaking countries this November, starting with Australia and New Zealand on November 3 then followed by the United States and Canada on November 4. Crunchyroll describes the seafaring musical adventure as such:
Uta—the most beloved singer in the world whose voice has been described as "otherworldly"—is renowned for concealing her own identity when performing. Now, for the first time ever, she will reveal herself to the world at a live concert.
With the Navy watching closely, the venue fills with Uta's fans—including excited pirates and the Straw Hats led by Luffy, who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance—all eagerly awaiting the voice that the whole world has been waiting for to resound. The story begins with the shocking revelation that she is the enigmatic 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 and new episodes coming out each week as they air in Japan.
