We don’t give a damn about the skin color because he’s going to be made up the same color as arlong I think and then I find that he has a rather thin face so it could go well with the arlong character Given that his face is cut Year V

Well, a lot of completely devastated people in the comments. It’s crazy how a skin color and a pronoun can make people tilt. What an increasingly shameful community… It’s such a shame

It doesn’t look great except for garp but hey, we’ll see with the costumes and everything that goes with it + very embarrassing pronouns

Stop pretending that you don’t care who plays an ultra secondary character to justify your phobia of people different from you when the whole of this adaptation will be a monumental crap thank you

People freaking out because the actor who’s gonna play Arlong in the live action One Piece is black, aren’t you tired of being racist as soon as you can? He’s a fucking blue fish man with a saw as a nose, what’s your problem????

BAHAHA I’m hallucinating they put “their” pronouns just below the people they’re going to play what the shit again

The cast is heavy in real life, they all go well

I don’t really like Baggy’s choice, after for the rest I have nothing to say. Arlong’s choice is logical, given the context of the fish men, but what we want is the images of the costumes, the makeup

Apart from koby where it sucks, I find that this casting for the series #ONEPIECE is quite well chosen.
Especially for Garp and Alvida because we would say limits the characters of the manga.
For Arlong taking a renoi is quite logical since it speaks of the rarity that we undergo fish men. pic.twitter.com/ymLGYnRLwq
