One Piece: Red is set to hit theaters in Japan on August 6th, though the fifteenth film of the Shonen franchise has yet to reveal when it will be hitting North America, but that isn't stopping fans from the West in sharing their thoughts on the upcoming movie. While the movie is introducing the daughter of Shanks in Uta, the "ultimate diva" is far from the strangest character that is set to debut as it would appear that Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates' ship, the Thousand Sunny, is being brought to life.
The Thousand Sunny isn't the first ship that Luffy and his crew have found themselves sailing over the course of One Piece's story, though this will certainly be the first time that their vessel has come to life. While the details are still mysterious when it comes to how Luffy's ship comes to life, the ship given life seems to have the same head as the masthead for the vessel, which makes it look surprisingly like the reindeer doctor of the Straw Hat Pirates.
Twitter Outlet New World Artur shared not just the look of the new iteration of the Thousand Sunny but also started the debate when it comes to whether or not this new One Piece: Red character is a good idea and how its design compares to Tony Tony Chopper and the other Straw Hats:
I love how half the fandom finds Sunny-kun to be incredibly adorable while the other half finds him utterly terrifying pic.twitter.com/C4u3ACyPLc— Artur – Library of Ohara (@newworldartur) May 18, 2022

Just Another Day
Finding out about Sunny-kun was interesting nonetheless. Sure I think he’s kinda cute. Is it weird for a ship to become this “thing”? Not really. To me I’m unfazed considering all the other weird shit that goes on in the world of One Piece. Just another day.— Theodore M. – DarkFusion89 (@DFusion89) May 18, 2022
Kind of Cute
He's kind of cute, but I want to know why we are getting a chibi Sunny-kun and how it applies to the plot of the film.— Heidi Malagisi (@HeidiMalagisi1) May 18, 2022
