Netflix Announces New One Piece Anime Series

One Piece is starting a fresh journey.

Netflix announced on Sunday that the popular manga series is being adapted for a new anime show, The One Piece, which is currently in production.

The One Piece team said in a statement that the new adaptation will be distinct from the TV anime series that has been broadcast for over 25 years. The upcoming series “aims to provide viewers with a fresh yet familiar experience, utilizing cutting-edge visual technology to reimagine Luffy’s adventures through the beloved East Blue saga,” the production committee revealed.

Written by Eiichiro Oda, One Piece has sold more than 510 million comics worldwide and has been published weekly in Japan since 1997. The manga series follows the exploits of Monkey D. Luffy, a young pirate with special, rubbery abilities. With the help of his gang, the Straw Hat Pirates, Luffy seeks the elusive “One Piece” treasure in the hopes of someday becoming the King of the Pirates.

A live-action adaptation debuted on Netflix on Aug. 31 and was renewed for a Season 2 in September. The series, starring Iñaki Godoy, landed in the No. 1 spot on Nielsen’s U.S. ranking of streaming originals the week of Aug. 28, amassing 1.3 billion minutes viewed across eight episodes. It also landed at No. 19 on TVLine’s year-end list of 2023’s best TV shows.

Netflix is also adapting another Oda manga, Monsters 103 Mercies Dragon Damnation, which premieres in January. According to the anime series’ description, it follows “Ryuma, a samurai entangled in a world disrupted by an ominous force — a dragon capable of unleashing catastrophic destruction upon the land.”
