OPLA! #2: “Playing in Oda’s Sandbox” (with Steven Maeda)

The One Piece Podcast

Sep 21 2023 • 1 hr 50 mins

This is OPLA! Our limited-run series One Piece live action podcast series. Each week hosts Steve and Vero bring you interviews with some of the talented individuals behind Netflix’s One Piece, as well as a recap and review of the series two episodes at a time.

This week, we have an interview showrunner and executive producer Steven Maeda! Mr. Maeda was previously an executive producer and writer on Lost, Day Break, Helix, and many more. We discuss the challenges and rewards behind the creation of Netflix’s One Piece, thoughts on the Straw Hat Crew, his experience with the manga, and the reasoning behind many of the adaptations to the live action series.

Steve & Vero also host their first OPLA Recap for One Piece Episode 3, “Tell No Tales“ and One Piece Episode 4, “The Pirates are Coming” — they discuss the highs and lows of the Straw Hat’s adventure in Syrup Village: Klahadore, Kaya, Usopp, and the rest.
