Most recently Netflix released a live-action adaptation of the hit manga and anime series, One Piece. One Piece premiered in August to critical acclaim, with the show scoring a four-star review from NME.

Mark Beaumont wrote for NME: “For hour-long episodes, One Piece rattles along at a sprightly pace, stacking drama points like teetering towers that all tumble in synchronised perfection. If it’s teen-friendly romps that virtually binge themselves you’re after, climb aboard and strap in tight.”
