Netflix’s ‘One Piece’ has made an impressive debut as it claimed the second spot in the original streaming series rankings just one week after its release. Suits, meanwhile, continued its 11-week reign atop the overall charts. One Piece, the live-action version of the manga of the same name, made its premiere on August 31, during the last four days of the viewership period. Within this short time frame, the show accumulated an impressive total of 1.3 billion minutes of viewership. Adding to the show’s remarkable popularity, it includes a more diverse audience than its competitors, with 25% of the viewers being Hispanic and 19% African American.
