Fans Cautiously Optimistic As One Piece Live Action Cast Actually Looks Good

The One Piece Live Action series, which has been a near-constant rumor, finally has it’s live action cast revealed. As part of the media hype surrounding One Piece’s 1000th episode, which is rumored to include a new animated movie as well, the live action cast for the series has been revealed. The characters and their live action counterparts are: Inaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Emily Rudd as Nami, Mackenyu as Zoro, Taz Skylar as Sanji, and Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp. While at first the fans were skeptical of another Netflix Adaptation, many agreed that the casting choices at least looked like a good fit on paper. At the very least, fans were happy to see that Luffy appears to be taking his part seriously, and that Eichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece, is at the core of this series, so it should be more faithful than previous Netflix adaptations.

While there were plenty of fans giving the series a chance, there were plenty who wanted to make memes about the casting. Common memes were poking fun at Taz Sklyar, who honestly does look like Eminem did when One Piece first got published, or just trying to announce other characters within One Piece and who could play them.
