Mexico. For some time we have known that when Netflix runs out of ideas, like Disney, it chooses to do Live action of some famous productions, such is the case of the failed Death note, which premiered in 2017 and left a lot of discontent among fans of the anime series.
The news of this release has not generated good expectations due to the past of the streaming platform with these live action tapes, so see Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, and all the other pirate crew in real life may not be that good.
It was through a tweet that Netflix released the news about this series, through a photograph where you can see the script, the logo and the name that the first chapter will bear:
Radiance Dawn. In addition, he also announced the scriptwriters of the project, who are Matt Owens, who has worked in Luke Cage de Netflix, y Agents
of S.H.I.E.L.D from Marvel; and Steven
Maeda, who worked big series like Lost, The X Files and CSI: Miami.
The photograph was accompanied by the phrase: “No matter how difficult or impossible it is, never lose sight of your goal”, which is one of the most memorable phrases of Luffy, the protagonist of the original anime series.
The original series coming to Netflix is based on a popular pirate manga of the same name, it was written and illustrated by the mangaka Eiichiro Oda, and due to its great popularity, it was decided to adapt to anime by the company Toei Animation, whose first episode premiered in Japan on the day October 20, 1999.
To date, chapters of the anime continue to be broadcast, the series is about to reach 1000 episodes, Well so far nothing more and nothing less than 988, and that in an environment as competitive as the world of anime, speaks of a great quality in this work, so much so that it has managed to transcend time, becoming one of the anime classics that you have to see.
Here are two soups, whenever Netflix recreates a live action series Either it turns out very well, or it turns out very badly, but almost always the balance leans towards the latter, So the announcement of the new production based on one of the anime most loved and known by all those otakus at heart, has not caused great emotion among the fans, on the contrary, it has unleashed the fear that another iconic series will be vilely destroyed, as was previously done with Death note.
So far Netflix has not given more details about it, such as when will be its premiere date, the cast of actors or how many chapters this first season will have, which we hope, is not of the quality to which the streaming giant has us accustomed with their live action of our favorite animes, and that if it is difficult and impossible, better if they lose the objective of carrying out the series in real action.
