One piece: red plans to take to the high seas this fall, and fans are already eager to dive into its story. It’s not everyday that anime tries to introduce Shanks’ child, after all. Not too long ago, the movie confirmed its original heroine to be none other than Yonko’s daughter, and new art has surfaced online showcasing the diva.
The artwork was shared on Twitter courtesy of the official A piece page. This is where fans saw several sketches of Uta as a child, and the girl looks absolutely adorable.

With their loose hair, it’s easy to make out the red-white coloring of Uta’s locks. In this new art, the girl covers her ears with a pair of headphones with her name on them, and her smile mirrors that of Shanks. The look is complete here with a simple long-sleeved dress, and Uta paired the casual outfit with a pair of flat ankle boots.

As you can imagine, A piece fans are wowed by this new piece of art, and Uta is quickly becoming a netizen favorite. The girl sparked buzz when their design was first revealed months ago, and many wondered if she would be related to Shanks in some way. After all, One piece: red promised to focus on the Yonko since his first announcement, and Uta’s red hair looked suspicious. The hunch was confirmed this year when a trailer revealed Uta to be Shanks’ hidden daughter, and fans will learn more about the heroine once One Piece releases its final film this fall.
