The world of anime and manga was left in shock and disappointment when news broke that a highly anticipated One Piece event in Japan had been canceled.
To commemorate the release of One Piece Film: Red, a magnificent fireworks display was organized for Yokohama Harbor in Japan on October 24, 2023.
This event, which was supposed to be a celebration of the beloved series, left fans perplexed as to why it had been abruptly canceled.
However, the sudden announcement about the event’s cancellation from the official end has taken all fans by surprise. The business responsible for the festival’s fireworks arrangements apparently backed out at the last minute, resulting in the cancellation of the big event.
In this article, we will delve into the reasons behind the cancellation of this One Piece event and explore the impact it had on fans and the anime industry.
Why Was One Piece Film Red Fireworks Festival Canceled?
Film in One Piece The Red Fireworks Festival swiftly drew the attention of fans who wanted to experience the fascinating fireworks while celebrating One Piece Film: Red. Unfortunately, all of the fans’ hopes were dashed when it was reported on One Piece’s official Twitter handle that the event had been canceled.
The principal cause for the cancellation was that the firm in charge of arranging fireworks for the festival, Breakthrough Inc., was unable to obtain them.
According to Crunchyroll, the official announcement reads, “ONE PIECE FILM RED HARBOR GRAND NIGHT – Into a New Era! Breakthrough Inc., the business responsible for obtaining the fireworks, was hosting a Great Fireworks Party.
The fireworks were supposed to go out in time with the music from One Piece Film Red. Breakthrough Inc. was unable to deliver the fireworks in time for the occasion for an undisclosed cause. Those who have purchased tickets will be fully refunded.”
The Success of One Piece Film: Red
One Piece Film: Red has wowed audiences worldwide by enslaving their imaginations with the promise of fresh adventures in the famous One Piece universe.
The film was released in 2022 and quickly established itself as a respectable addition to the decade-long anime series. A magnificent fireworks display set against the stunning backdrop of Yokohama port was planned to commemorate this cinematic extravaganza.
Meanwhile, One Piece Film Red continues to attract people as it screens in Japanese theaters, with a 4K version of the film set to be released soon. While the fireworks festival’s cancellation was obviously disappointing, spectators can only hope that such an event can be conducted more successfully in the future.
