We’ve known early on that Eiichiro Oda was heavily involved with bringing Netflix’s live-action adaptation to life. It’s his baby since he published the first chapter back in 1997. The series has gone on to pass the 1,000 chapter mark and its Anime followed shortly after with 1,000 episodes. The latest volume, 101, has finally been released and included a cute page all about t Netflix’s upcoming series.
As shared by @OnePiecePodcast, the latest puts an emphasis on the upcoming cast of Inaki Godoy, Emily Rudd, Jacob Romero Gibson, Taz Skylar, and Mackenyu. It’s a big sign of trust in these characters that they are highlighted in the latest volume and is another sign of proof that the productions are working closely with the original team behind the series. Sadly, it doesn’t include any details outside of the cast announcement.
Probably the biggest highlight is also the detail put into this reveal. The upcoming series will adapt the East Blue Saga throughout ten episodes and, as such, the character designs are taken from that timeline. So, here’s hoping the show can live up to the expectation and also the wait for the first look at these actors as the respective characters won’t take too long.
