One Piece is a manga series that began on July 22, 1997 and was created by Japanese writer and designer Eiichiro Oda.

He is not alone in his adventure and as the story progresses he is accompanied by more and more characters, each crazier than the other. Building on his success, an anime adaptation was quickly made in 1998. At the moment (November 2021) the manga is not finished and will soon even begin its 1000th chapter. The ending still seems to be gradually taking shape, according to the words of some experts, including the author, but knowing that the new arcs seldom last less than a year we need to be very patient. A habit for One Piece fans.

Eiichiro Oda is the mangaka behind One Piece. Whether it’s the drawings, the story, the unique universe, everything comes from him and his overflowing imagination. His passion for manga started when he was 14 years old and for those of you who are already interested in Vic the Viking, he knows he gives a lot of references to it in One Piece. In fact, Oda is a huge fan of Viking history and piracy. So these two elements gave birth in his head to this adventure that is known to almost everyone today.

The project may have been unveiled more than 4 years ago, and filming didn’t really start until September 2020. It took place in Cape Town, South Africa. However, casting issues related to the pandemic delayed the project for several months. As a result, the site had great difficulty moving forward. In March 2021, the director returned to the spotlight to reveal a code name: Project Roger. Specifically, it was a simple message for fans with the sole aim of reassuring them. Let us now come back to the present. The actors and actresses were certainly revealed, however the release date is still a mystery. However, a future announcement can be expected in the coming weeks or months.
The One Piece series will actually be available in the Netflix catalog. In Japan, this already applies to the episodes of the animated series, which just celebrated its 1000th episode. A luxury of which the French version of the SVOD platform is unfortunately private. However, this live-action adaptation is not affected by the rule that applies to the Japanese animation series.

As a reminder, the episodes of the live-action cowboy bebop series were broadcast without delay.
What is the plot of the One Piece series?
In order not to lose viewers who do not know One Piece, a decision has been made: to adapt the first adventures of our favorite pirates. Hence, the series is expected to start with Luffy as a child and dream of becoming the pirate king. Logically, we will see him leave his island as a teenager to look for future comrades in piracy. Anyone who knows the manga or the anime already knows what to expect, as long as the series produced by Netflix stays true to the basic material: the release of Zoro, the recruitment of Usopp, Sanji and finally Nami. .

It’s a sequence of storylines in which our favorite pirate recruits the first members of his crew. It remains to be seen who exactly will be affected by the 10 episodes. The key players’ search notices are up and everything indicates that the workforce will grow over time. We’re not immune to a last-minute surprise that would set the stage for a (hypothetical) second season.
