Unfortunately, we do not have a more exact date, although we imagine that after this first contact, new news will be arriving more fluently in the coming weeks. What we do know is that, unfortunately, too much time has passed since that first official announcement in 2017. Although if all this time invested is for a better result, the wait has been welcome.
Of the little we do know about the series, is what stories this first season will adapt. And it is that throughout the presumable 10 episodes of which this first approach will consist, will adapt the entire saga of East Blue with their respective bowssuch as Romance Downthe one of cheapness and others we previously reviewed here on super fiction.
As to whether the series will live up to the source material, we don’t know anything either. What we do know is that the author himself, Eiichiro Odahas been directly involved and that his feelings are not only very positive, but he is also visibly excited about the result. Be that as it may, the challenge of translating the work into a real image must have been daunting and, regardless of its outcome and whether or not the result convinces the fans, It is very difficult to become a profitable product as we told you a few months ago.
