Our Expectations With The Movie:
I can’t wait to see How Shanks Fights? – Fans in 1997 and 2021
Our wait to see Shanks with the closest than ever is going to end soon.

The movie will be based on Shanks but and we have already covered a detailed article on this topic. You can read it from here.
Moreover, we personally think that One Piece Red will surpass every other anime film out there, including Mugen Train, because fans have waited for 20+ years to know about this character, and now finally, he is going to make a move. If production and distribution are done right by the officials, this movie will break all the existing records and set the new story of glory in anime archives. We believe that you will be as excited as us for this movie, so our appeal is, please support the creators and don’t watch the film with Piracy. Go to your nearest Cinemahalls, and enjoy the show to the fullest. If you somehow won’t be able to visit the movie hall, the movie will definitely make its appearance on Legal streaming sites. So please watch from there.
