Arr! It be Talk Like A Pirate Day! For this year's celebration, I'm looking at a manga turned anime turned live-action pirate show, One Piece. Watch ONE PIECE | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Free Yourselves. Take to the Seas. The Journey to find the ONE PIECE begins August 31. Only on Netflix.That looks like a lot of fun. It also reminds me that when I was reading the "One Piece" manga 20 years ago, I didn't feel like I was reading a comic for pre-teen boys until I got to the end of each chapter, when the author would put in a bit of history about pirates. Those felt like he was talking to a younger audience. The story itself was fast-paced, engrossing, and enjoyable for all ages. It looks like the live-action adaptation is succeeding in adapting it to the TV screen.
With his straw hat and ragtag crew, young pirate Monkey D. Luffy goes on an epic voyage for treasure in this live-action adaptation of the popular manga.
That's all I feel like sharing today. Stay tuned as I return to my regular programming tomorrow, whatever that is.
