One Piece live-action is a commendable effort by Netflix in adapting this famous manga and anime series to the big screen. The film has bright spots in terms of image, sound, and script.

She is Nami’s older sister, who has survived many hardships with her. Nojiko in the manga has blue hair, pinkish white skin, and a pretty and gentle face. She also has a poppy tattoo on her left shoulder, symbolizing her love for her mother Bellemere. Nojiko is a good older sister, she always cares for and protects Nami, even though there are sometimes conflicts.
In the live act OP, Nojiko is played by Chioma Umeala, a black actress. Chioma is beautiful and talented, but she is not suitable for the role of Nojiko. Her appearance is not similar to the manga, with no blue hair or poppy tattoo. In addition, the script also changed Nojiko’s personality, making her selfish, cold and insensitive towards Nami. Makes the audience feel disappointed because it is dishonest and incompatible with the original.
2. Ben Beckman
In the live-action version of One Piece, Benn Beckman’s appearance surprised many fans. In contrast to the manga, a pirate is cold and cool, has a neat and toned body with romantic, wild hair, always carries a rifle and has high intelligence. Benn in live-action looks a bit like a normal neighbor with droopy hair. The actor playing the role also did not accurately reflect the cold and cool look of the character in the original.
Although the actor is beautiful, Benn Beckman’s appearance and expressions in the live-action version did not meet the audience’s expectations. It can be said that the makeup team made a mistake by not being able to recreate Benn Beckman realistically and in accordance with what fans expected. That’s why Benn Beckman is one of the most disappointing characters in One Piece live-action.
Makino was the one who took care of Luffy when he was a child on Foosha Island. She is a beautiful, gentle and courageous girl. In the manga, Makino has long black hair, white skin, and a youthful and cute face. She is also a close friend of Shanks and the Red Hair Pirates.
In the live-action movie, Makino is played by actress Emily Blunt, who has played roles in many famous movies such as The Devil Wears Prada or A Quiet Place. However, Emily Blunt is not the same as Makino in the manga. She looks a bit older and much more serious. She also cut her hair short and wore unattractive clothes. Additionally, her way of speaking is also different from the original, making her less friendly and warm towards Luffy.
In the live-action version of One Piece, a talented cast and quality script recreate the pirate world. However, changing too many details in the original has made some characters less attractive and memorable. This makes many audiences feel disappointed, especially longtime fans of One Piece.
