One Piece Film Red, the latest anime film from the One Piece series, unveiled an illustration of Uta newly drawn by the series’ author Eiichiro Oda on Wednesday. The illustration is the film’s new giveaway titled UTA HAPPY XMAS CARD. It will be offered to those who watch the film at theaters in Japan starting from December 17 to 25 until the stock (200 thousand sheets) runs out.
The illustration shows the diva Uta enjoying the snowy weather and snow piled on her name “UTA”. Behind her can be seen “HAPPY XMAS 2022”.
Kaori Nazuka voiced the character in the film and Ado was in charge of Uta’s singing voice.
