An exciting musical adventure awaits us in ONE PIECE FILM RED, and we’ve safely arrived at the first destination on our way to the film’s release this summer: a breathtaking animated music video for the main theme song, “Shinjidai” (“New Genesis”)!


Ado, who’ll be the singing voice for Kaori Nazuka (Shimizu in Haikyu!!)’s Uta in the upcoming film, performs the song written and composed by Yasutaka Nakata. The video itself is directed and animated by illustrator hmng, with choreography by Mikiko from renowned dance troupe Elevenplay.



Non-Music Video Version


Ado recently shared a stunning portrait that was drawn by author Eiichiro Oda himself, which was since been applied across her social media and streaming service accounts (where you can listen to “Shinjidai” worldwide!).
