" Adelstein, whose credits include Last Man Standing, Prison Break, and Teen Wolf, remarked. 

"And if you're lucky, you get one like this that has such a large resonance, and there's such awareness of and love for the source material."

One Piece was a follow-up to another live-action Netflix series based on a renowned animation,
