I have only seen about three episodes of the One Piece anime, and I have never read the manga. I always felt like I would love it if I just dove in, but I didn’t have the time to invest in the long-running series. From the first trailer for the live action adaptation though, I knew I would be watching it. And holy crap, I absolutely loved the first season. It’s so earnest and heartfelt, and the themes of friendship and following your dreams are ever-present. It reminds me of the Paddington movies, which I adore. I cannot wait for season two.
