Eiichiro Oda Shares An Update on One Piece Live-Action Series, Confirms Episode Length


If you were wondering about the current status of Netflix’s One Piece Live-Action series, you aren’t alone. Luckily, the streaming company has provided a new update on its status.

The update was a message from the manga’s creator, Eiichiro Oda, who also serves as the show’s executive producer, stating the show will still air in 2023, but it will not air until he is satisfied. Furthermore, he added that Each And Every Entity Involved Is Working In Sync. He clarified that the series will consist of eight episodes instead of the ten that were previously reported.

In this writer’s opinion, this will hopefully fare better than Netflix’s previous attempts at adapting an Anime Property. The company is still reeling from the recent criticism regarding Cowboy Bebop.
