When Netflix subscribers boot up One Piece, they’ll witness some of the wackiest stories ever to hit the streamer. Luffy’s world is an ocean full of pirates, outlandish creatures, and some of the silliest superpowers ever created. Still, underneath all that craziness, is a story about friendship and standing against anyone who threatens to squash your dreams. If you can’t fall in love with the buffoonery, maybe the show’s themes will still tug at your heartstrings.
That’s what Netflix is hoping for with its adaptation of One Piece, which currently holds the record for the best-selling manga of all time by a long shot. Hell, even the anime exceeds over 1,000 episodes. With such a dedicated fanbase, there’s no telling where opinions may fall after audiences view all eight episodes. For everything moving forward, stick with us below.
Will One Piece Return For Season Two?
After Cowboy Bebop and Death Note, Netflix doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to live-action anime adaptations. Even with awkward pacing and some haphazard special effects, simply watching One Piece play out with live actors may be enough to satisfy viewers. With some luck (and fan approval!), One Piece may see a Season Two renewal.
What Will Happen in Season Two?
The first season of One Piece covered an ambitious amount of material—tackling 100 chapters in just eight episodes. At that pace, Season Two will most likely adapt the anime up to around Chapter 218. Next up for Luffy and friends is an island of giants, the search for a doctor to join the crew, and the fight against a criminal organization of bounty hunters threatening to destabilize the desert nation of Arabasta. It’s one of the best arcs in One Piece, and the first to really establish the journey moving forward. It may just take a massive fan campaign to get us there.
