Netflix continues to ramp up promotion for its One Piece series. After sharing new interviews and other promo videos, Netflix released the first One Piece live-action Japanese dub trailer which features the original anime’s cast.

Previously, it was confirmed that the five Straw Hat Crew members in the show will be voiced by their original anime VAs in Japanese. Now, it’s also official that other cast members are back.

Along with this, Eiichiro Oda also shared another message to fans to further hype the show.

Unlike most live-action anime adaptations where the original creators aren’t involved at all, Eiichiro Oda has been hands-on with the One Piece live-action series.

Even back when it was first revealed, Oda has been there every step of the way, so much so that he says that the series has his full seal of approval.

Now, Oda has a new message for fans with a suggestion of watching the show on the biggest screen possible. But because it’s a Netflix release, the show can be easily watched on almost any device.

Previously, Oda shared a message about how he is braced for criticisms from viewers given that the series will have some differences from the original. He reiterated that he fully supports the show’s staff.
