Monkey D. Luffy is synonymous if anyone discusses the manga series One Piece. It wouldn’t work without him as its main protagonist, whose unique personality makes him stand out among the many Shonen Jump characters we’ve followed throughout the years. Now, Inaki Godoy has the challenge of taking on this iconic role. In an interview with GamesRadar from before the strike, he acknowledged the pressure of taking on this role.

Of course! Of course! Of course there was a lot of pressure. There is a big responsibility to honor the work of more than 20 years of a man, you know? He’s been writing this since he was 17. Not only just honor Mr. Oda, but honor the anime too. Mayumi Tanaka, she has been performing this character for so long. And the way they’ve been doing the anime for so long too, and there are so many people who have grown up with Luffy, and the Straw Hats and the world of One Piece. So you want to respect that, and you want to honor that.

Though, he goes on to highlight that his own experience from the manga also carried him through the experience. All that pressure became excitement as he took on the challenge of becoming Monkey D. Luffy in Netflix’s adaptation.

But if there’s one thing that I have learned from One Piece, it’s that even though things are challenging, you have to find a way to have fun. So yeah, there was a lot of pressure, there was a lot of anxieties, but there was also a lot of fun! And there was a lot of love. And just like any adventure, it was exciting. You know, I was so excited to get to be a part of something this massive and so incredible, and it’s an exciting adventure.

As Usopp actor Jacob Romero highlighted, the production had a lot of heart involved that could make it stand out from others. It seems that everyone involved with the production knew that this wasn’t going to be easy and the wait isn’t long until we can see if all their hard work paid off.
