One Piece live-action became one of the best and most successful live-actions of all time, breaking several records and achieving worldwide recognition. The series was #1 in 84 countries when it aired, which shows how vast and spread-out the One Piece fanbase is.
One of the significant and intriguing aspects of season one was the inclusion of the backstories of several characters; the show expanded more on them than the manga, and the source used for it was the Q&A in the last pages of the chapter from the One Piece manga.

Live action has been a sour topic in the anime community due to its long and frustrating record of not meeting fans’ expectations and becoming the year’s top 5 most trending TV shows.
Majorly every live-action managed to disappoint fans more and more until Netflix’s One Piece live-action came out and took over the scene.
The series depicted the hard work of everyone involved in the project and looked like something made for the fans rather than for money.
One of the most exciting changes the series made was to include the characters’ backstories in the first season to connect the audience with the characters.
To depict them according to their lore, the source was Oda’s sensei’s SBS and Q&A at the end of the chapters.
Q&A included questions about characters’ preferences, such as what they like to eat and what they prefer to wear, as well as more details.
The Netflix team integrated all these details into the season, and the result was fruitful, with fans receiving the series faithfully and going wild over it.

What’s next for One Piece?
This is just the beginning for One Piece fans, as the second season of live-action is already confirmed to be in the works. However, no release date for the series has been revealed yet.
Following the years that went into the production of season one, it is safe to say that the second season is still a few years away.
On the other hand, One Piece is being rebooted by none other than WIT Studios, who are widely known for their surreal animation of Vinland Saga, Attack on Titan, and others, and it would be exciting to see how things turn out.
Fans are excited about this announcement, as WIT is known for its fast-paced episodes, which One Piece never got to experience due to TOEI’s slow-pacing episodes, which feel dragged out and unnecessary.
