I don’t know if there are plans to take author Eiichiro Oda’s highly popular manga, One Piece and amp it up to a live-action theatrical telling since Universal Studios Japan launched a live-stage show version this year. At any rate though, the manga has seen its way to the screen via original video anime and other installations of the manga, all of which have drawn a considerably large fan base.
Of course, that could only mean inspiration for artists within the fan community, including the folks over at Woonsa Studios in their latest collaboration with Korean martial arts sports team, K-Tigers featuring two of its members, Kang Min and Hyung Kyun as Luffy and Sanji, and a special animated appearance by Tony Tony Chopper at the end. The description on the K-Tigers page says the video was shot in a little over three-and-a-half hours between two days while Kyun was in the middle of getting over a pretty bad stomach issue, which I personally commend him for as I imagine it’s not easy to do all that kicking while sick.
Moreover, hopefully we will see more of the K-Tigers on screen to showcase themselves as memorably on film as they do on stage. I’ve written about them before and anyone who has seen or heard of them will have no reason to argue against any of their accolades.
