One Piece producers have to solve a big problem before the broadcast on the Netflix platform. We tell you everything.
One Piece encountering problems! The producers still have to settle them before the broadcast on Netflix! MCE TV gives you more details.
Difficulties for One Piece
Adapting a live-action anime is a real challenge. By the way, the One Piece series of Netflix is facing a size problem. She must manage to solve the problem of rhythm of the anime at the risk of being canceled.
As a reminder, One Piece is an anime based on the manga by Eiichiro Oda. We follow the adventure of Monkey D Luffy and his pirate crew. They must all attempt to find the mysterious One Piece.
As with any anime, the fantasy world of One Piece will be difficult to put in live-action. The biggest problem is the pacing of the story.
You should know that One Piece has 1,000 episodes while the book has more than 100 volumes! Besides, after all that, the story seems far from coming to an end.
The manga author even predicted that the story will be over in 3 or 4 years. But that could obviously change. Still, anime and manga have started in 1999 and 1997! Just that.
Waiting is so great for One Piece. Besides, you should know that most of the main characters have already been cast. And the first season is even already in production. But all of this should be taken with caution.
It should be noted that fans often complain about the pacing of One Piece. Some find the pacing of the series to be far too slow. Netflix will therefore have to respond to this criticism!
What to expect ?
One Piece fans therefore often criticizet the slow pace of the series. Especially during the first acts of the anime. This is also one of the reasons why fans stop watching! Eh yes.
For One Piece to attract new viewers, Luffy needs to gather the core Straw Hat Pirates faster than in the anime. Season 1 must thus cover the arc Along Park.
This represents moreover the best qualities from One Piece. But it’s a big challenge! In addition, Netflix has confirmed that there will be no more than 10 episodes for the first season.
But this difficulty is surmountable with rather long episodes. Critics also echo how long it takes Usopp and Sanji to join the crew.
Sanji, the last of the original 5 Straw Hats, joins the team in episode 30! The arc of Syrup Village is also very important. Thus, Netflix cannot pass by and ignore them.
The series must therefore be able to speed up the first parts of the story, but without missing a beat! Arlong Park’s arc cannot be removed or botched.
Indeed, this is where the series delivers the full potential of the story. Especially with the intense fight scenes with the fishermen and the emotional stakes in the series.
The problem is that this arc lasts until episode 44 in the anime. Netflix must therefore find a way to make its episodes last for 60. By taking advantage of it to get the most out of it.
