The live-action One Piece series may be gaining some real momentum. Maybe. It’s unclear. It’s all one big question mark. Okay, so I probably need to do some explaining. A couple of Comic-Cons ago (because I measure time in Comic-Cons), it was announced that there would be a live-action adaptation of the long-running shonen manga One Piece by Eiichiro Oda. It’s been over a year since then, and there has been limited to no updates on it.
However, recently, some Twitter accounts have noticed that the show One Piece has popped up on Netflix with an official, undecorated page. Now, one would naturally be inclined to assume it could be a harbinger of the long-running anime adaptation making its way to the streaming service. However, it’s categorized under “US TV shows,” bringing us to question two things: are they making progress with this show, and did Netflix buy the rights to said show?
Check out the tweet below.
Netflix now lists One Piece, which appears to be for the live-action series considering the genre listed at bottom as 'US TV Shows'.

As of this writing, there has been no update on the development of the show and whether or not anything has been done. So as it stands…this could be a whole lot of nothing, but the existence of this page is indeed suspicious. I’d say this falls in line with the whole “where there’s smoke there’s fire” adage. Something is happening, and it’s just a matter of finding out what it is.
