After revealing a bunch of new information on the One Piece franchise on Monday, the official Twitter account for the upcoming ONE PIECE FILM RED anime film released a new character visual of Luffy today in a get-up that could only be described as “going full pirate.”

The text on the poster, which seems to be a response to the first character poster, reads “Never! I’m on a 183 victory winning streak!!”
Goro Taniguchi returns to the franchise for the first time since 1998 as the director on ONE PIECE FILM RED. Taniguchi, who is best known as the director of Code Geass, previously directed the 1998 One Piece: Defeat Him! The Pirate Ganzack! short for the Jump Super Anime Tour ahead of the TV anime premiere in 1999. Tsutomu Kuroiwa returns from ONE PIECE FILM GOLD to write the screenplay for ONE PIECE FILM RED. Toei Animation is producing the anime film with Eiichiro Oda.
ONE PIECE FILM RED is set to open in Japanese theaters on August 6, 2022. You can watch over 1,000 episodes of the One Piece TV anime right here on Crunchyroll.
