Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Director: Naoyuki Itô
Cast: Hiroshi Naka, Chikao Ohtsuka, Keiichi Sonobe, Naoto Takenaka
Runtime: 115 min
Our first of three highlights today is one of the latest One Piece movies to touch down on Netflix in the US. While Netflix Japan still has the superior One Piece library, we’re happy to see new movies (and hopefully new seasons) join ahead of the eventual release of Netflix’s live-action adaptation of the manga/anime.
Here’s what you can expect from Strong World:
“Legendary pirate Shiki reappears in East Blue planning to destroy the World Government. When he kidnaps Nami, the Straw Hats confront a strange land.”
Adam by Eve: A live in Animation (2022)
Genre: Anime, Music
Director: Nobutaka Yoda

Runtime: 58 mins
Anime, live-action and music by cutting-edge artist Eve — all weave together into this dreamlike sonic experience inspired by the story of Adam and Eve.
It’s not the first musical special we’ve seen with music spliced with anime. Three years ago, we saw the release of Sturgill Simpson’s Sound & Fury onto Netflix.
Catherine Cohen: The Twist…? She’s Gorgeous (2022)
Genre: Stand-up, Comedy
Director: Steve Brill
Cast: Catherine Cohen
Runtime: 61 mins
Finally, a new stand-up special arrives today which is the ninth Netflix Original stand-up of 2022 for the service.
It comes from the relatively unknown comedian Catherine Cohen who employs a cabaret-style to her stand-up. In the special, Cohen “serenades about looking for love, the absurdity of marathons and burying someone alive.”
According to an interview with NPR, it’s taken six years to produce the special since the comedian started putting pen to paper.
