A Live-Action One Piece Series Is Now Listed On Netflix’s Site

Netflix is quickly becoming the It-place for original series and live-action takes on classic franchises like The Witcher and Death Note.

The streaming service is going hard when it comes to their live-action adaptations, but here comes one we thought we’d never see – One Piece, the zany manga-turned-anime with millions of fans all over the world.

Over on Netflix’s website, a listing has cropped up, reading: “One Piece:

“Monkey D. Luffy sets sail with his trusty crew to find the One Piece treasure and become the ultimate Pirate King! Based on the manga by Eiichiro Oda.”

The series is listed under “Action & Adventure Programmes” and “American Programmes,” – yup, American Programmes.

The reveal has been met with some controversy, as Netflix didn’t exactly knock it out of the park with its live-action movie version of Death Note.

Right now, next to nothing is known about the project, including the cast or when it’s going to be released.

Do you think Netflix can tackle One Piece, or should they have stayed clear of this adaptation…?
