One Piece by Eiichiro Oda was first published in 1997 and has been adapted many times over the years. The most recent live-action adaptation by Netflix is a successful translation of the beloved manga.
One Piece is the epic adventure of pirate Monkey D. Luffy, who, together with his crew of ‘Straw Hat Pirates,’ travels the Grand Line in search of a mythical treasure (the titular One Piece) so that he can become the next pirate king.
The manga’s popularity is due to its tight storytelling, world-building and art, as well as its characters and humor. It seems that these elements were translated successfully in the series, which is popular with and enjoyed by both new and old fans of the manga. Even people who have never read it will enjoy the show, as it was not only produced for die-hard One Piece fans.
