Netflix has announced that Monkey D. Luffy’s adventures are far from over with a new anime adaptation of One Piece. Entitled The One Piece, the anime series will follow the same story as the manga, starting with the East Blue saga.

Produced by the WIT Studio (SPY x FAMILY, Attack On Titan) in collaboration with Shueisha, Fuji Television Network, and Toei Animation Co. Netflix has said it hopes the series will ‘provide viewers with a fresh yet familiar experience, utilising cutting-edge visual technology to reimagine Luffy’s adventures through the beloved East Blue Saga’.

Based on Eiichiro Oda’s bestselling manga series, The One Piece follows Monkey D. Luffy, an aspiring pirate who sets sail with his Straw Hats crew in search of the mysterious One Piece treasure. Luffy isn’t just like any pirate, however. With limbs that can stretch like rubber, his unique skills help him take on the dangerous villains and rivals that he and his gang encounter at sea.

Published in 1997, the manga series was adapted into an anime series in 1999, which has been running for 20 seasons. Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Oda’s epic pirate adventure premiered in August 2023.

The East Blue is the introductory saga of the manga and 1999 anime series, where fans first meet Luffy. Named after an expansive ocean, the East Blue is the birthplace of the infamous pirate Gold Roger, who inspires Luffy to become a pirate himself and find the One Piece treasure. It’s in this chapter where Luffy meets his ragtag pirate crew, dubbing them the Straw Hats.
