Ahead of August 31, a date that millions of One Piece fans mark on their calendars, Netflix is raising the hype with trailers and visuals shared regularly on social media. The excitement should still climb several notches, since a first concrete opinion concerning the show has just fallen.
The One Piece series should mark the public
The Movieweb media had the chance to discover six of the eight episodes of Netflix’s One Piece series in preview and delivers its opinion without spoiler. Let’s get down to business right away, the site describes the show as “the best live-action adaptation of an anime of all time.” Well, it should also be noted that the bar was not very high given the poor quality of live-action Full Metal Alchemist, Dragon Ball Evolution or Death Note. According to them, Netflix would nevertheless have learned from its mistakes with Cowboy Bebop.

Baggy the Clown, played by Jeff Ward, would also deliver a high-flying performance. Without saying too much, the media makes it clear to us that this adaptation would be a good surprise, especially since it does not issue the slightest criticism.
A faithful adaptation to the manga and anime
And the fights? Special effects ? The main plot? Completely evaded by this first opinion which focuses mainly on the performance of the actors and the overall quality of the One Piece series. In any case, the fidelity to the original work of Eiichiro Oda would be there, which should reassure some skeptical fans. Moreover, the mangaka’s point of view throughout the production of the series has been partially revealed by the Japanese Netflix account and we learn that Eiichiro Oda quickly realized that Inaki Godoy was the perfect Luffy , as Movieweb advance. A special site that will trace the seven years of exchange during the production of the live-action One Piece will be released soon.
