As spotted on a new Netflix listing, it seems like the top hit anime One Piece by Eiichiro Oda is the next anime that will be getting a live-action adaptation.
Netflix is known for throwing a huge amount of budget for an anime series adaptation. Some of their projects are the live-action adaptation of Tite Kubo’s Bleach, Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist, and the recently announced Cowboy Bebop live-action series.
Since this company is no stranger when it comes to anime adaptation, it’s not surprising to see if they are planning to create a live-action adaptation of One Piece. As reported by Resetera, One Piece live-action series Netflix page has been spotted online.
