In Japan, they’re making a live-action One Piece! It’s for the stage. As previously mentioned, it’s kabuki. Now, we get a decent look at how the characters will be brought to life.

This summer, Kotaku reported that the One Piece kabuki production will follow the Summit War Saga and plans to remain faithful to the way characters talk and act.

Above is Luffy, who we’ve seen before. Below, via 2ch, you can see Sanji, Ace, Zoro and Whitebeard.
