  • Hey, guys. My name isaki, and I play this one guy called Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece.

  • Right now, I'm currently in Tokyo,

  • and the reason why I'm here is that I'm gonna go meet Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece.

  • It's like meeting Batman.

  • I get to meet the secret identity, and it's gonna be a secret between him and me.

  • I am really looking forward to it.

  • I'm a little bit nervous.

  • aki!

  • Wow!

  • (Speaking Japanese) I'm happy to meet you.

  • I am so, so happy to meet you.

  • Why do a live action of One Piece?

  • (Speaking Japanese) Back then, 26 years ago when I started One Piece,

  • it wasn't possible t padapt a manga like this into live action.

  • But, at a certain point in time, the quality of CG and VFX really started to improve, and you could bring anything to life.

  • After seeing many such things, I decided to take the plunge, figuring that if we find a reliable team, we could pull this off and adapt it into live action.

  • My biggest worry about the live action was whether we could be able to find someone like Luffy.

  • But I was watching various audition tapes, and when I saw you, I kind of started laughing.

  • I made you laugh?

  • It's ready!

  • - What is it? - Our Jolly Roger.

  • You're just like the character I draw in the manga.

  • I intuitively thought, "That's Luffy."

  • I feel like this role was meant to be, and I want to play Luffy for a very long time.

  • I really hope you do.

  • I can't imagine anyone else playing this role.

  • I love drawing, and I made this for you.

  • "Dear Mr. Oda, thank you for creating One Piece and making so many people around the world happy."

  • "Playing Luffy is a dream come true, and I will always do my best to bring him to live action."

  • "Luffy is a friend for the world who teaches us about courage, dreams, and family."

  • "I am beyond honored to be a part of this story, and me and the entire live-action team admire you so much."

  • "Thank you for One Piece, and thank you for Luffy."

  • I love your character Luffy, and he means so much to me.

  • He makes me smile, even when it's hard.

  • I think your energy as Luffy is going to be contagious.

Hey, guys. My name isaki, and I play this one guy called Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece.
