- The VFX artists emphasize that one of the anime’s greatest appeals is its action and the way it tells the story through subjective images.

VFX artists break down the live-action battle between Luffy and Buggy One piece, which explains why it doesn’t match the energy of the anime version. Netflix has often had problems with its anime adaptations, with TV shows being canceled after a short period of time, and with films that failed to catch on. However, the adaptation of One piece proved to be an exception, finding favor with those who enjoyed the source material and receiving a quick second season renewal.
In a new video for the YouTube channel Corridor crewVFX artists collapse One pieceis the big fight between Luffy and Buggy. In the video below, the trio praise the adaptation for somehow reflecting the energy of the source material. However, there is also a lively and detailed discussion about how to do this One piece in live action cannot provide the same enjoyment as the source material due to the work with real actors and the fundamentally different storytelling medium. Her quotes are described below:
My only criticism here is that I only see great visual effects, but I see some really strange choices in camera work and direction and so on. This screams the opposite of anime to me. Maybe it follows the same narrative rhythms, but it has none of that kineticism and impact. So you don’t feel the energy in it. I feel the story. I feel the effects. I don’t feel anything anime-like about this at all. [I’m] I’m not saying it’s bad, it’s just not an anime. Is One Piece a live-action TV series or a live-action anime? What I see here is not a live action anime, it doesn’t feel like a live action anime, and if it was marketed as such… I would be disappointed.
Yeah, so far it’s just been a crazy fun adventure live action TV series, it’s cool. One of the biggest appeals in anime is the action and the way they tell the story of the action. This allows you to use subjective images to convey something that would be impossible in real life; Similar to how music picks up arbitrary frequencies and converts them into emotional signals. Animation records arbitrary movements and converts them into emotional signals. What makes anime so special to me, and when you’re doing an adaptation, you’re not going to try to achieve the same intensity in terms of liking, shot selection, and composition. It is a visual medium. Each anime frame is a painting or drawing. This is how you get that serenity. They focus on the individual image telling a story.
Apparently they got Netflix to pay them a lot of money to make another live-action version of it. The One Piece adaptation looks fun. It seems like a super fun show to watch. It’s nice to see an anime adaptation from Netflix that still has some movement, some kineticism, and plenty of action […] So it’s like trying to refine the tone and the shooting style, especially finding the balance when using real actors.
The One Piece adaptation is faithful in other ways
Because of their area of expertise, VFX artists are great at explaining why One pieceLike many other live-action adaptations, it doesn’t attempt to reach the level of its source material. Either because it doesn’t want to scare away new viewers, or for logistical and narrative reasons One piece The series is narrower in its efforts to visually mirror the anime. At the same time, an attempt is made to honor the original in a different way.
The adaptation had great difficulty casting protagonist Luffy and ultimately landed on Iñaki Godoy. It’s an acknowledgment of how important the character is, and it takes cues from a relative advantage of live-action adaptations. By investing time and effort into casting the right roles, actors like Godoy are able to bring a level of authenticity to their performances that serves as a further nod to the source material. Although live action doesn’t always match the visual style of the film One piece In anime, the way each character is portrayed can add another level of fidelity to the adaptation.
Ultimately, these are two different media. While anime gives complete freedom to create stunning visuals, a live-action series can involve experienced actors to build a bond with the audience. There are two different ones One piece Worlds, even if the Netflix version does a commendable job and pays homage to its predecessor.
