From Celluloid to Canvas: Netflix’s ‘One Piece’ Cast vs. Anime

The One Piece cast on Netflix ultimately stayed pretty true to the original anime and manga concept. One Piece has long been one of the biggest and most well-known anime brands thanks to its vibrant cast of characters, imaginative combat scenes, and plots that get more and more epic with each new volume. Every new entry in the One Piece series has received a staggering amount of care and consideration, and the Netflix adaptation was no exception. Although only a handful of the One Piece live-action cast members are well-known, most of them have roles in other films and television programmes that are definitely worth checking out.

As executive producer of the live-action series, One Piece author Eiichiro Oda was determined that the cast had to be the ideal match for the characters he created. Since Oda personally participated in the series’ creation, it makes sense that the live-action One Piece actors would have earned his endorsement, which would also account for why they were able to capture the charm of the original anime characters. This undoubtedly assisted the Netflix live-action One Piece ensemble in capturing the attention of manga and anime fans. Take a look at each character from the Netflix live-action One Piece adaption and see how they stack up against the originals.
