Next One Piece Movie Must Break Anime Canon Rule
Netflix’s One Piece will likely only cover what’s canon for the manga, and there’s a good reason why the next movie should be one of them.
There’s a new A play movie titled One Piece Movie: Red on the horizon, and with the next A play Leading Netflix Series, Red must break the biggest rule anime has about what is and isn’t canon. Details on Netflix A play are currently rare, but what is known about them gives a good idea of what will be covered in the first season. RedAs an animated movie, it’s unlikely to make it into the series, but depending on what happens in the movie, that’s bound to change.
The general rule of thumb for anime adapted from manga is that anything not in the original manga is non-canon filler. Naturally, animated movies, which are usually just extra-long episodes, almost always fall into this category, except for rare examples like The Last: Naruto the Moviewhich served as a canon epilogue to narutoand the my hero academia films which, according to the author, are all canon. The A play the films, however, are more typical of non-canon animated films; Shiki and Daft Green from strong world are canon, as is the Laugh Tale spelling of stampede, but the actual events of these movies are not explicitly. Because of this, the movie, or any of the filler arcs in general, are unlikely to make it into the next Netflix series, as they’ll likely try to stay as close to canon as possible.
That being said, it would definitely be Netflix A playis advantageous if One Piece Movie: Red broke this trend and was the canon of history. This is due to the fact One Piece movie: Red will focus on a new character named Uta, who is not only Shanks’ daughter but also Luffy’s childhood friend. Red hasn’t been released yet, but Uta has bound to have a significant impact on both characters, so making movie canon could be an easy way to further develop the characters of Luffy and Shanks for the live-action series.
One Piece Movie: Red becoming canon could also open the floodgates for other filler elements to be incorporated into both the live-action series and the general canon. The G-8 arc, for example, is held in high regard by people for how likable new characters are and how different it is from a typical character. A play story arc. As for movies, Baron Omatsuri and the secret Islandrealized by BeautifulMamoru Hosoda, does a great job of setting up the idea of Luffy losing all his friends, and strong world, Zand Stampede all provide much valuable worldbuilding with their stories. Many filler stories could add a lot to the Netflix series by being canon, and Red going canon might help start that.
Animated movies tend not to be true to the stories they’re based on, but Netflix A play the series would greatly benefit from the next One Piece Movie: Red against this trend. Uta being Shanks’ daughter and Luffy’s childhood friend means she will likely be the source of a lot of character development for both of them and being canon could end up adding a lot of material for the show to use, in addition to justifying other A play filler stories being incorporated into the series. There’s no way to tell which direction the next Netflix series will take A playbut something like this would definitely be a great way to start.
