However, according to producer Steven Maeda, interviewed by TVLine, it seems unlikely that their relationship will develop beyond friendship. The producer said: «One of author Eiichiro Oda’s conditions for the live-action adaptation was that there would be no romance between the cast members. As long as it’s a manga work called One Piece and a live-action adaptation of it, it’s hard for the Straw Hat crew to have a romantic relationship. Therefore, a romantic relationship cannot develop between Zoro and Nami.».

And he said: «It’s just that the chemistry between Mackenyu and Emily was good, there was no intention of making it like a romantic element.. You are free to read and feel what you want from the series. That’s the fun of watching a TV show».
