The last chapters of the work by Eiichiro Oda has had some of the most interesting revelations of the last plot arcs, however not all the eyes of the fandom are on there, as the anime will resume soon and the One Piece live-action reveals more and more details about its progress. Now, thanks to the internet, we know what the Going Merry, the mugiwara ship, will look like.
While Kaido will surely take a lot of damage after Luffy’s last attack in the manga and may finally show us the true power of the tyrant of Wano, it seems that the production of the live-action One Piece has also had its own problems. In their case, they are facing conflicts to adapt some of the cartoonish elements of the franchise such as Luffy’s devil fruit powers or some enemies and even his ships.

In the case of the Going Merry, thanks to the Huge Twitter accountwe can see that there are some differences with respect to the original model of the ship. The production of the One Piece live-action has chosen to give the Straw Hat Pirates ship a more realistic lookmoving away from his characteristic cartoonish appearance.

Despite this, there is a part of fans who prefer to see it as an improvement, the Merry looks like a smiling ram complete with neck that blends into the shape of the ship. Beyond this forward part of the ship, everything remains relatively the same. In the coming weeks, we may see a sneak peek of this project that shows what the entire crew will look like in it.
The Going Merry and its history in the One Piece live-action
As we see in the One Piece live-action, the Going Merry was the first ship of the Straw Hat Pirates. It is a caravel-class ship designed by Merry, financed and given by Kaya to the Straw Hats as a reward for saving her.. Over time, the ship became much loved by the crew as a home and as a friend, so much so that she literally took on a life of her own and became as much a part of the crew as any of them.
Unfortunately, the Going Merry took an enormous amount of damage during its “life as a gang member”, losing several pieces of wood, being knocked over, burned in the Skypiea Saga, and has even had its main mast broken multiple times. Eventually the Going Merry could go no further and was given a Viking funeral after the Enies Lobby arc. We doubt that the first season of the live-action One Piece will reach this point in history, but it would be interesting to see it adapted.
