Netflixwoche, the German site for Netflix, shared shocking and exhilarating news for One Piece fans.

According to Netflixwoche, the episodes of Netflix’s One Piece Live Action were more expensive than the episodes of the critically acclaimed Game of Thrones.

The HBO series had a per-episode budget of 14.79 million USD, whereas the same for One Piece Live Action cost 17.27 million USD.

However, Netflixwoche does not specify if it is referring to the overall per-episode budget of Game of Thrones or just for the final season, season 8.

This becomes more important as the numbers for the per-episode cost for season 8 are very similar. with the overall budget being roughly 90 million USD across the six episodes of the episode.

However, this is purely speculative, as no confirmation has been issued about the same.

The One Piece live-action series will start airing on August 31 on Netflix.

Matt Owens will be the show’s writer, while Becky Clements and Steven Maeda will serve as executive producers.

Adelstein revealed in a video message displayed at Jump Festa in 2017 that the live-action television adaptation of the One Piece manga will commence with the ‘East Blue arc’ and extend it from there.

Netflix will exclusively stream the live-action series. The first season will have ten episodes. Eiichiro Oda will serve as an executive producer.

Netflix has been substantially investing in animation and live-action adaptations. The corporation has announced a Yu Yu Hakusho series for 2023.
