    RE: Quotes from Oda's Interviews

    Here's something Oda said before.

    Oda doesnt want OP (what's been shown in the story) to be perceived as a man-made work, Straw Hats' journey is like a 'real fiction' happening in a parallel universe, what we're reading now is mainly what the Straw Hats' have seen and done, it's their unique experience and it's Straw Hats' style to enjoy the scenery all along the way, so we see many so-called 'side characters' and 'subplots' as well as many other small things. Oda wants to build up characters with rich emotions and relationships with other characters.

    In the end, Oda is more of a story teller than a creator, there'll be something that's not so relevant to the main story, but it's there.

    To get maximum enjoyment and satisfaction from OP (or from reading every single chapter of OP weekly), there's a lot of small things for you to find out other than pure fights. A small example is those devastated people on the street in the background panels in many Dressrosa chapters, if you pay a bit more attention to them, there's somewhat interesting thing that you wont otherwise notice. Why pace matters? No, it doesnt matter. Any you-thought-to-be-unnecessary things have their own meaning in the story. Read it slowly. That's what I would say.

    However, just like Oda said:

    All up to you.

    RE: Quotes from Oda's Interviews

    It certainly is amazing reading the thoughts and words of the mangaka himself. Thanks for this @"Rio.D.Kaneki" -san :)

    On another note...I find this thing about Luffy's mother so hilarious!
    She'll be nowhere near (the nurturing) Portgas D. Rouge but I really am curious on her role and overall personality (if she appears in the series.).

    RE: Quotes from Oda's Interviews

    (Thx sandman_AP for the info.)

    The interview between Oda and Kisimoto will be revealed in the new Naruto book called "Michi" (it means way/road). I think we'll have the chance to read it at the end of this month.

    [​IMG]

    By the way, in the latest interview of Kishimoto in "da Vinci", he said, "I tried to defeat ONE PIECE, but it was an extremely strong opponent. All mangakas should try to defeat it."

    The full interview will be available at Naruto Event that will be held soon.

    - At first Oda intended to defeat Naruto, but after he met Kishimoto and found that Kishimoto was a very nice and kind guy, Oda began not to care if his manga won or lost against Naruto.

    - Oda was frustrated that Naruto was more popular than ONE PIECE in foreign countries. At the same time, he appreciated it.

    RE: Eiichiro Oda's Past Interviews

    Credit: sandman_AP

    Weekly Jump editors department was introduced in the TV show tonight.

    - The current ONE PIECE editor Suguru Sugita (25 years old) was introduced.

    [​IMG]

    - Oda gets annoyed when the editor calls him Oda-sensei. Oda doesn't want to be respected too much.

    - Oda listened to the editor's advice that Cavendish should get more angry when his horse was defeated.

    As read these interviews I got to know Oda-sensei more and now I admire him even more... a really great man both as a mangaka and person, the only thing that annoys me is his sleeping hours... yeah maybe one can say he's a really hard worker and all but this just isn't right... no wonder he was hospitalized sometimes before, Oda-sensei should be more concerned about his health because it'll all meaningless if he dies before ending the story (but I'm aware that anyone can die at any giving moment so being too worried won't help much :P ), anyways; stay strong Oda-sensei :) .

    See i read this and i just can't believe ussop is the weakest straw hat, especially if there is a plan for another time skip, i would think he would become one of the top after this. He can take hit's and he was able to somewhat stand his own aganist luffy in water 7. then again we never know what Oda is planning.
