Spoiler Alert: It’s probably one of the best characters of the series.
One Piece’s anime adaptation may be nearing the grand finale of the War For Wano, while the manga continues to flesh out the Straw Hat Pirates’ final plot, but the Shonen series is prepared to venture into uncharted terrain with Netflix’s impending live-action version. With several characters from the East Blue Saga already cast, young actor Inaki Godoy is poised to portray the captain of the Straw Hats.
That said, Inaki answered one of the most typical questions ever, and his answer was surprisingly very Luffy-like (that is, if Luffy himself had actually watched the show).
In a recent question and answer session, Inaki revealed his two favorite characters from author Eiichiro Oda’s thoughts, one unsurprising and the other likely surprising viewers are given the tiny influence that said character had on the series overall.
Check out the Twitter post of the One Piece fan page here:
Condoriano, for those who don’t know, is an anime-only character that has been branded the “strongest character in One Piece” while being anything but. While he never appears in the manga, it’s evident that Condoriano’s influence has spread to the fan community, since Godoy also looks to be in on the joke when it comes to the military guy.
Netflix stated earlier this year that One Piece’s live-action series will premiere this year, presenting two new images that offer us our first glimpse at the live-action performers who would play the Straw Hat Pirates in full costume, but not totally unveiled. Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji will join Inaki Godoy as Luffy, with many of the young actors taking to social media to share their excitement for their roles, and actors like Taz Skylar proving that they are extremely dedicated by focusing on their kicks and cooking.
A specific release date and/or footage from the live-action adaptation have yet to appear, but given that the series will premiere this year, we expect both to arrive sooner rather than later.
