Even though details like ethnicity do not affect the plot in any way, fans believe that casting someone different from what they were shown in the One Piece manga and anime will ruin the series.

Some even pointed out that the series might be drifting away from the original source created by Eiichiro Oda.



While One Piece fans are worried that Live-Action season 2 may be ruined, it all depends on the acting of the actors who will play these characters and the series creators who have promised a great experience in the upcoming season of one of the greatest anime and manga series of all time.
