What led you to deduce the diverse cast of actors?

It all started on Twitter, after the official production of the series in live action create a post congratulating the character Nami's birthday, member of the Straw Hat crew. And a fan responded by calling for the production to include Asian actors in the cast.

Please have a diverse cast... it doesn't have to be Nami, but I would sincerely appreciate at least one Asian/Japanese actor on the main team

In response to One Piece's official Live Action account for Netflix, it was a little "mysterious", but for those already familiar with the statement from Eiichiro Oda (One Piece creator) the answer is quite enlightening.

Highlight for the first flag, from Brazil. Which makes reference to Straw Hat Captain Luffy, who according to Oda would be Brazilian.

The Nationality of One Piece Characters

In a Q&A session held back in 2009, Eiichiro Oda revealed that if the Straw Hat crew existed in the real world, the Pirates would be from the following countries:

Monkey D. LuffyBrazil
Roronoa ZoroJapan
Nami “The Thief Cat”Sweden
“God” UsoppAfrica (continent)
Tony Tony ChopperCanada
Nico robinRussia
Nationality of the Straw Hat Pirates, according to Oda

It is worth mentioning that, Jimbe the former shichibukai who is now also part of the crew, at the time the statement was made by Eiichiro Oda (in 2009), was not yet part of the crew so he was not officially given a nationality by the author.

Despite receiving mention also during the Usopp interview, he received only one mention from the author referring to the continent of his origin, making no mention of any specific country.
