The producers of One Piece have to tackle a big problem before the work is released on the Netflix platform.
The broadcast of One Piece could never take place. The creators still have a huge puzzle to settle before it airs on Netflix.
The difficulties faced by the producers of One Piece
Applying photorealistic animations is a real challenge. Additionally, the One Piece series of netflix faces a big dilemma. She must solve the problem of rhythm of the animation at the risk of being canceled.
One Piece is an anime based on the manga by Eiichiro Oda. You will follow the adventures of Monkey D Luffy and his pirate crew. They must all try to find the mysterious One Piece.
As with any other anime, the fantasy world of One Piece would be difficult to bring to life. The biggest problem is the progression of the story. You should know that One Piece is 1000 episodes and there are more than 100 volumes.
The cartoonist even predicted that the story would be over in three or four years. But of course that can change. However, anime and manga started in 1999 and 1997.
Most of the main characters have already been cast, and the first season is already in production. But all this must be done with caution. Fans often complain about the speed of One Piece. Some think the series is too slow.
Season 1 should therefore cover the Arlong Park arc. This represents one of the best arcs in history. But it’s a big challenge. Additionally, Netflix has confirmed that there will be no more than 10 episodes in the first season.
This difficulty can be overcome with fairly long episodes. Critics also reiterate how long it took for some members to join the crew. The last of the original 5 Sanji Straw Hats, joins the ship in episode 30.
The series should therefore be able to speed up the first part of the story, but not miss the beat. The Arlong Park arc cannot be removed or damaged, as it delivers the full potential of the story. In particular, the intense battle scenes with fish-men and the emotional lines of the drama attract attention.
The problem is that this arc lasts until episode 44 of the anime. Netflix must therefore find a way to make an episode last 60 minutes without making it boring.
Netflix is dealing with a big bet
One Piece is one of the most popular cartoons today. Published in 1997, it is the flagship work of Weekly Shonen Jump, a reference Japanese magazine published by Shonen (literally “adolescent” to designate the editorial target of a manga) for more than 20 years. Eiichirō Oda’s masterpiece currently has 100 volumes, with over 1,000 chapters and has already surpassed 1,000 episodes in animation.
Suffice to say that Netflix has no room for error. More than 480 million copies have been sold worldwide (25 million copies in France), and the Mugiwara adventure is awaited. Based on careful analysis, countless theories are relayed on the networks each week when a chapter is released. Some YouTube channels (like Mont Corvo with over 500,000 subscribers) are entirely dedicated to it.
Additionally, the platform streaming of the Japanese science fiction animation Cowboy Bebop having failed to be transformed into an action film, this practice, severely criticized by fans of the original work, was questioned, because canceled after one season in December last year.
