Netflix’s live-action One Piece has taken the streaming world by storm, winning over fans and overcoming the so-called “curse” of Hollywood anime adaptations. The series was commended by critics for achieving the proper mix between honoring the source material and taking the creative freedoms required for a new format.
Unfortunately, the first season of the ever-growing series only features 8 episodes and after completing those episodes, fans are left with the big question, ‘What Now?’. Well, some talks are going on about the second season being in the works, and till then, here are 7 thrilling Shows, that every One Piece Live-Action will love.
1. Shadow And Bone
Shadow and Bone is a Netflix fantasy streaming television series created by Eric Heisserer.

The series tells the narrative of young Alina Starkov, an orphan and cartographer in the Ravka nation’s First Army, who realizes she is a Grisha, a being with exceptional abilities who has been waiting for a long time to solve a severe need in the universe.
