10  Easter Eggs From Netflix’s One Piece That Will Blow Your Mind

preview for ONE PIECE | Official Trailer | Netflix

THE LIVE ACTION adaptation of One Piece is full of exciting fight scenes, plot lines that are accurate to what viewers of the anime and readers of the manga remember, and an intriguing finale that will lead to an interesting Season 2. And, of course, one of the most exciting things about watching a show that has so much source material is looking out for all of the Easter eggs that pop up throughout the episodes. The decision to add in a bunch of clever Easter eggs was purposeful, as production designer Richard Bridgland revealed when the series premiered.

“The show is full of Easter eggs. I really urge fans to look deep into the background of all the sets because there are so many easter eggs that we put in. For instance, in the Bartie restaurant, if you look on the walls, there are all these paintings. Every single one of them is one of the places in the One Piece world that Zeff might well have visited,” Bridgland told Decider. “We know he visited some and we thought he could well have visited the others. I got these landscape paintings made and put on the wall. They’re quite unique. They’re not in the manga. It was just something to give some more depth and detail for fans of the show.”

Chances are you’ve picked up on some of these hidden details on your own, but if you’re having trouble picking out the rest, keep reading.

Here are 10 One Piece Easter eggs that you might’ve missed.
