- Warning: Major spoilers ahead for Netflix’s “One Piece” season one.
- The season one finale of “One Piece” appears to tease a new antagonist for season two.
- Based on that tease, here’s where the story might go in season two if it sticks to the source material.
Netflix’s “One Piece” dropped its first season on Thursday, and many fans are already clamoring for season two news.
The new show is the first live-action adaptation of “One Piece” and closely follows the first saga of the anime and manga, the East Blue Saga. In season one, we meet a goofy and heroic pirate named Monkey D. Luffy (Iñaki Godoy) who seeks to become King of the Pirates by finding a special treasure called the One Piece.
Before he can get to his prize, Luffy first collects a crew of misfits with equally-big dreams: Triple-sword user Roronoa Zoro (Mackenyu Arata), who wants to become the greatest swordsman in the world; thief and navigator Nami (Emily Rudd), who wants to draw a map of the world; kickboxing chef Sanji (Taz Skylar), who wishes to find the legendary sea All Blue; and compulsive liar and sharpshooter Usopp (Jacob Romero Gibson), who wants to become a brave warrior of the sea.
The group defeats numerous evil pirates and are hunted by the Marines, including Luffy’s own vice-admiral grandfather Garp (Vincent Regan), on the Netflix show. The season ends with the crew finally heading to the Grand Line, a special part of the world where the One Piece was hidden long ago, after Luffy finds out he has got his first bounty.
Netflix has yet to renew the series for season two, but the season one finale’s ending teases a new antagonist — and suggests that a potential second season would focus on the Arabasta Saga from the original manga.
