Recently, the streaming platform premiered the live-action adaptation of One Piece, which was a resounding success. Currently, the second season of this adaptation is in production.

Maeda shared, “I love SPY x FAMILY so much. It’s just wonderful. It’s funny you mentioned it, since it’s one of the IPs I’ve been chasing for a while now. I think there are many interesting stories to adapt. It’s just difficult to get them. But the anime is definitely awesome source material».
