Many people wrongly view anime as a small genre, even though countless different programs have millions of devoted fans. When big Hollywood studios try to earn quick money from live-action adaptations, this very presumption causes them to lack dedication and focus. Netflix recently launched the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of One Piece, and the attention has shifted to the streaming giant.

Netflix is in the spotlight after the release of its highly anticipated live-action series One Piece. The streaming giant’s previous attempts to adapt anime for live-action have not been great. The single-season 2021 Cowboy Bepop show and the 2017 Death Note movie don’t inspire confidence. Still, Netflix has been confident about One Piece.

The series is a live-action remake of Eiichiro Oda’s iconic Manga series, One Piece, where there is a little craze about the Netflix show. Netflix’s live-action One Piece adaptation reportedly boasts a budget of $18 million per episode, making it one of the most expensive shows ever made.

The cast of the series has also received a huge salary for their performance. Iñaki Godoy, who plays the lead Monkey D. Luffy, received $320,000 for his performance. Emily Rudd received $200,000 for her role as Nami. Mackenyu, as Roronoa Zoro, received $220,000. While Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp and Taz Skylar as Sanji received $150,000 each.

The much-awaited series, which was first announced in January 2020 and aims to bring the anime craze to the world of live-action entertainment, has finally debuted. Looking at the success of the One Piece manga, which sold more than 500 million copies globally, it is expected that the Netflix series will be quite successful.

Even though One Piece is one of the most popular anime and manga series in the world, a live-action version didn’t come for almost a decade. The new live-action series based on Eiichiro Oda’s manga series One Piece is about the young straw-hat pirate Monkey D. Buffya and his quest to discover a vast treasure with his crew of straw-hat pirates. The East Blue saga from the anime and manga will be covered in season 1 of the live adaptation.

Eiichiro Oda, the man of the One Piece manga, is serving as the adaptation of One Piece for Netflix’s streaming service along with Tomorrow Studios. The cast of the live adaptation includes Iñaki Godoy, Mackenyu Arata, Emily Rudd, Jacob Romero Gibson, and Taz Skylar.

One Piece first appeared on July 22, 1997, in a Weekly Shōnen Jump issue. Since then, over 1,000 chapters and 95 volumes of the manga have been released, and it is currently in its final arc.

One Piece is available to stream on Netflix.
