One Piece Live Action Season 1 Episode 3 Tell No Tales Review

One Piece Live Action Season 1 Episode 3 Tell No Tales Review: The latest animation to live-action adaption on Netflix, One Piece, brings the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy and his pirate crew to life, based on the manga by Eiichiro Oda.

At the outset of this episode, Usopp storms through Syrup Village, shouting that pirates are on their way. But even seven years later, Usopp hasn’t stopped sounding the alarm. His reaction to them is uneven, but Kaya still shows an interest in them.

In the third episode of One Piece Live Action, titled “Tell No Tales,” Luffy and his gang visit Syrup Village. Usopp, an active little kid infamous for getting into trouble, lives in this sleepy port town alongside a shipyard and a bustling market. Usopp walks about town, warning everyone that pirates are approaching; at first, they believe him, but after a few false alarms, they start to doubt him.

After spotting an excellent ship at the shipyard, Luffy persuades Usopp to accompany him there, claiming that both the ship and the shipyard belong to his buddy Kaya. Kaya is exceptionally kind and inviting when they get to her house, but Klahadore is hostile and tries to force them away.

Luffy sees a vessel he likes and wants to buy at the shipyard. Nami proposes they steal one, but Luffy is adamant about asking the owner for permission to buy one legitimately. Nami bets Luffy that he can’t persuade her to allow them free use of her ship, but Luffy decides to try anyway.

At long last, we see the Going Merry, Luffy, and his crew’s legendary ship. The music rises as the camera frames its famous sheep figurehead, establishing the tone for the episode and showing how much the program values its place in pop culture.

As the episode proceeds, the characters begin to battle as we discover more about their backstories, including that of Koby, the mysterious head of the navy, who has made quite an impact since his live-action debut and whose storyline seems poised to continue throughout this season.

Those interested in One Piece should not miss this live-action version. If you’re a One Piece fan and want to binge-watch the first season, this program will keep you entertained. It’s neither the best nor the worst live-action version of the series. The animation is crisp, and the voice acting is spot-on so you won’t lose interest for a second.

One Piece on Netflix features a live-action dramatization starring Jacob Romero Gibson as the fan-favorite character Usopp. When Usopp overhears the Straw Hat Pirates chatting about how much they want their ship, he offers to help them find one. Usopp then transports them to Kaya, an heiress who cares for her disabled son in her house with the help of bodyguards and a butler named Klahadore.

Usopp has always had feelings for Kaya, but she has never returned them. Even though Kaya enjoys listening to his tales of daring and pirate escapades, her minders advise that she not spend too much time with him.

Zoro and Nami have seen that Usopp and Kaya’s dad are getting along better as they speak about their childhoods, and Usopp admits he may have had a love for Kaya.

When they get to Kaya’s, she greets them with open arms and offers to cook them dinner. Later, Usopp gifts Kaya and tells tales of his heroic exploits, which makes her laugh at first, but she ends up coughing, on which Usopp tries to calm her nerves by feeding her some weird-looking blue tea.

The anime does a good job toning down Usopp’s worst flaws, although his brash nature is still in evidence. The Straw Hats are often in stitches thanks to his stand-up comedy, although he constantly interrupts and thinks he’s a shipwright. Usopp’s expertise as the lone mechanic on his team makes him an essential player.

While the new One Piece TV series has advanced the story, it has alienated some viewers with certain nitpicky adjustments. In addition, it is careful not to make each episode about Luffy alone, giving viewers a chance to see other characters without them feeling like an afterthought. This is especially true of Klahadore, the villainous butler whose true intentions are never revealed to the audience, making him more of a tease than a formidable foe.

When Zoro gets suspicious of Klahadore, Kaya’s chief butler, he stands out from the other pirates visiting Kaya’s hamlet. Zoro concludes that Klahadore is a member of the Black Cat Pirates since he has five blade marks on his chest, and he tries to tell Kaya of this, but she invites them all to dinner.

At dinner, Nami brags to her friend that Kaya can hardly eat since Klahadore has so much power over her. Zoro’s skepticism is unwavering, yet he keeps his guard up. Zoro discovers a suspicious-looking Klahadore in her room after dinner with Kaya and Merry. Zoro tries to convince Klahadore that he has business there, but she still won’t allow him out of her apartment.

Klahadore wakes up in the middle of the night to talk to his butler, Merry, who expresses anxiety that Klahadore will hand over the estate and funds to him. Unfortunately, Klahadore shows his true nature by killing the butler in cold blood, exposing many hidden blades.

After supper, Zoro and Usopp travel below the wine cellar, where Zoro runs across Kuro of the Black Cat Pirates and observes five slash marks on Kuro’s body. Zoro discovers a suspicious-looking Klahadore in her room after dinner with Kaya and Merry. Zoro tries to convince Klahadore that he has business there, but she still won’t allow him out of her apartment.

The two are about to engage in sword combat when another member of the Black Cat Pirates interrupts them. While Luffy is distracted eating a big pot of poisoned food, Kuro’s group knocks Zoro unconscious and throws him into a well. Meanwhile, Usopp rings the bell to rally the town’s citizens but has little luck. No one helps him until Coby shows around.

In this episode, Nami spends time in Kaya’s wardrobe choosing dresses for their dinner date, demonstrating her awareness of the possibility that Kaya’s financial situation is less rosy than it initially looks. During their conversation in Kaya’s room, Nami also tells her friend that she shouldn’t allow anybody to boss her about and that she has more strength than she gives herself credit for. It was a sweet moment that made me think more highly of Kaya and lowered Nami’s defenses.

In this episode, Fishman Arlong, looking for Nami’s whereabouts and a Grand Line map, interrogate Buggy the Clown. He later explains to Arlong that Luffy is the one who disrespects him on the East Blue.

Actors’ work thus far has been excellent. Fantastic, too, is the way Koby and Garp’s friendship has blossomed. When Koby beats Garp at Baduk, Garp recognizes his superior strategic insight and rewards him with a high-profile position. We won’t know how this will affect Koby’s growth as a character until further episodes air.
