On October 8, One Piece will occupy all of Times Square
One Piece Film: Red debuted in Japan in August amidst much unrest, including 2 big apparel brand tie-ins, and moved on to dominate the box office for 9 weeks in a row. Yes, it has generated 15.8 trillion yen (US$110 million) to date and is still the top movie in Japan, but as the saying goes, you haven't made it until you've made it in New York.
Therefore, One Piece will take care of it as well this weekend.
The area will be totally covered in visuals from the enduring anime and manga series from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. using the intersection's several big digital signboards.
These pictures are renderings of how Times Square will appear that evening.
One by one, throughout the hour, huge animated representations of the movie's main characters will appear on the screens.
Characters that are expected to appear
But first, 6 arcs will be synced together and displayed as montages on the displays. For some One Piece sensory overload, the Marine ford Arc, Fish-Man Island Arc, Punk Hazard Arc, Dressrosa Arc, Whole Cake Island Arc, and Wano Country Arc will all receive their gigantic screens simultaneously.
A few examples of what is displayed
It will undoubtedly be remembered because it is the greatest international advertising campaign One Piece has ever undertaken. It's also a wonderful opportunity to get ready for the North American debut, which was slated for 6 October at New York Comic Con, which will take place approximately a month after the North American cinematic run on November 4.
Since we already know that chances like these might not be available for very long, anybody in the neighborhood should stop by and check it out to be a part of One Piece's history.
