Have you had a chance to watch the live-action One Piece series yet? Chances are good that a lot of you have, because it continued to dominate in its second week of rankings on Netflix. The live-action voyage came out in first place once again in the global English TV rankings, taking the spot in 73 countries and the top 10 in 93 countries. 

In the United States specifically, One Piece was just behind Virgin River season 5 in second place. In total, One Piece has secured over 19.3 million total views, 145.7 million hours watched and a 7:34 hour average runtime.

Debuting on August 31, all eight episodes of the first season of the live-action One Piece are now available to stream on Netflix. Eiichiro Oda’s original manga is available in English through VIZ Media, which describes the epic yarn like so:

As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer “Red-Haired” Shanks. But his life changed when Luffy accidentally ate the Gum-Gum Devil Fruit and gained the power to stretch like rubber…at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, still vowing to become the king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his adventure…one guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary “One Piece,” said to be the greatest treasure in the world…
