The first-ever ice show, One Piece on Ice, will be inspired by Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga this summer, according to an announcement made on the comic's official website on Monday. The announcement gave no additional information.
On July 19, 1997, Oda started serializing the One Piece manga in Weekly Shonen Jump. Monkey D. Luffy, the main character of the manga, is an aspiring pirate who, like many other pirates, dreams of obtaining the fabled "One Piece" wealth that a legendary pirate left behind. Along the journey, he faces off against other pirates and government navies as he organizes a crew, equips a ship, and traverses the Grand Line in pursuit of the loot.
In August 2022, the anime movie One Piece Film Red made its debut in Japan. In November 2022, One Piece Film Red was made available on Crunchyroll in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. In terms of both the quantity of tickets sold and the amount of money made at the box office, the picture has emerged as the highest-selling and highest-earning film entry in the franchise. The movie is now the #5 highest-grossing anime movie in Japan, surpassing Howl's Moving Castle. The movie also has the eighth-highest lifetime box office earnings in Japan and has the largest number of tickets sold in 2022.
The manga is being adapted into a live-action series by Netflix, which will premiere this year.
