One Piece Film Red becomes the highest grossing anime film

After decades on the air, the anime has over a dozen movies under its belt, and entries like Dragon Ball Film: Z gained big when it was released. But in just ten days since its release, One Piece Film Red is now the highest grossing entry in Japan.

As for other international markets, One Piece: Stampede grossed almost $14.5 million, so only time will tell how the new One Piece movie will fare with its share at the box office. Previously, we shared a beautiful cosplay of Boa Hancock from One Piece: Stampede.
