Whenever people announce the live-action of some popular animes, it gets people excited with high hopes. But we know the drill now. Get your high hopes, go to the theater, get disappointed by the changes you never expected and the horrible CGI you could have lived without.
Netflix announced a One Piece live-action in the works along with the creator, Eiichiro Oda’s note.
Eiichiro Oda has announced this live-action collab with Netflix since way back in 2017. In this note, he wrote, “I know I announced the production of this back in 2017, but these things take time! Preparations have been slowly progressing behind the scenes, and it seems that I can finally make the big announcement.
Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, will be lending us their tremendous production support! This is so encouraging!! How far will the story progress over the 10 episodes of Season 1? Who will be cast!? Please be patient a little longer and stay tuned!!”
Instead of movies, the live-action will be done as a series with 10 episodes for its first season. Now, one of the best anime live-action ever was Death Note, as a personal opinion. There are several others in the shoujo or romance section which don’t involve as much CGI and action scenes.
Another one is Rurouni Kenshin which was very much applauded for amazing fight scenes, cast and storytelling.
But this update has got people like:
Anyways, they have also set up an official Twitter account for the live-action. The fans had a glimmer hope when they heard that Oda will also be an executive producer and remains close to the development of the project. We’re talking multi-billion companies working with one of Japan’s best mangaka. Let’s hope they won’t butcher it.
