Live-Action One Piece: The Writers Want To Do One Of These Three Things Every Episode

What key elements do the writers of the live-action One Piece want to accomplish?

There are a lot of moving parts to One Piece. You can’t have a story span nearly 1,000 chapters (and counting) without this being the case. But it’s especially the case with One Piece, a show whose world rivals some of other greats in fantasy fiction. But, even though there are a ridiculous amount of elements, there are many that make up the core of the One Piece experience. When adapting for live-action, you can bet they will do their best to make sure those are retained.

But what exactly are those elements? What does One Piece need to accomplish in order to be successful? Well, it sounds like the writers have a solid idea of what they think One Piece needs to be, and they hope to accomplish it every episode. Speaking on Reverie, a collaboration between YouTube personalities, head writer Matt Owens discussed the series.

“If you try to boil One Piece down into three important elements, it makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it makes you go ‘holy s**t.’ If you have one of those moments in every single episode, we will have done our job tonally.”

Of course, humor is a big aspect of the series. It’s that particular aspect that will be very hard to adapt. In addition to being very Eastern in nature, the humor can be incredibly cartoony and childish. So, it will be this element that will likely give them the most trouble, along with fans. The crying stuff…that is the real core of the show. A lot of these heartfelt moments exist in flashbacks, but Arlong Park is another big tearjerker. I’m sure that big moment will be a huge part of the closing chapters of the first season.

Finally, those “holy s**t” moments are key as well. They come in many forms. They could be big action set pieces, Devil Fruit reveals, or world-building situations. I’d bet money that one of these moments will be the introduction of Dracule Mihawk to the show. He was already a big part of an East Blue arc, and in their desire to make the early episodes of the live-action show more relevant to ones later, I expect to see a lot from him.

What do you think of Owens’ comments? What are the big One Piece moments? Do they have the right idea of what they need to accomplish every episode? Sound off down below!
