Eiichiro Oda’s masterpiece, One Piece is gaining fame not only in manga and anime but also in the live-action series by Netflix. Since its release, it has broken a lot of records within the first two weeks. The series has received the same love from the fans as they have for the manga series and anime. This has resulted in making the Netflix live adaptation of the series.

The live-action One Piece version on Netflix is reportedly budgeted at $18 million for each episode, making it one of the costliest shows ever produced. And each episode was worth its penny. The biggest expenditure of the series was the salaries of the star cast which were way higher than that of many of the leading characters of other famous series. Mackenyu, the actor who plays the role of Zoro, has made nearly 4 times more than the lead actress of She-Hulk Tatiana Maslany.
