    This is the summary of Eiichiro Oda's new interview with Yuzu.

    - When Oda got married in 2004, he promised his wife that One Piece will end in 10 years, then he'll take her for a world tour. But 15 years have now passed since that promise.

    - Oda is satisfied with his work but in the same time he feels worried when starting a new arc.

    - When Oda drew Enies Lobby arc, he felt it would be impossible to draw an emotional story like that one in the future.

    - Oda is confident that his audience will enjoy One Piece as long as he keeps drawing what he wants.

    - One Piece will be a lot more exciting towards the end. Oda has already made up his mind regarding most of what will happen in the future.

    - Wano arc is heading for what he didn't imagine.

    - Oda feels sorry for earning money by enjoying drawing manga despite many people working hard in their companies.

    - Oda would die in a beach somewhere rather than die in his office.

    ( Thanks Sandman )

    • Condoriano becomes Fleet Admiral after starting a successful coup against Sakazuki
    • Luffy becomes Pirate King after bitch slapping Blackbeard
    • Coby retires from the Marines after realizing he's useless

    Oda shouldn't feel sorry. There's nothing wrong to do a job person loves.

    Wow, sounds interesting :).

    My mind literally jumped back and forth on laughing at Oda/thinking he's crazy and having blind faith in him. I would have taken him blindly at his word of keeping all the breadcrumbs connected until WCI B.S. happened. Of course we will never hit low points similar to Kubo/Kishimoto with Bleach/Naruto, but damn...I can only hope for the best but brace for the worst.

    As long as Luffy gets his awakening before defeating Kaidou, I can live with anything else.

    The bit on his promise with his wife is interesting. I'm too lazy to go back and track what point of the manga that was, but there is a clear jump to "expansion" when I picked up the series in late 2005. Within 1-1.5ish years, Oda breaks his promise to his wife a creates an overall "slower" pace. The "pace" is roughly the same, but Oda expands the "One Piece universe" astronomically so we get exponentially greater amounts of minor/petty details in the chapters (Thriller Bark is the most distinct point, but I would not argue against the changes happening to the end of Enies Lobby).

    I have no idea why Oda would reveal this, but maybe that's what this modern culture seeks out.
    Of course I 100% agree. In regards to Oda sympathizing with the people of Japan/the world literally working their butts off to make ends meet, I'm super curious to see what sort of foundations/philanthropic work Oda is doing/does in the future. I have to image he does something to promote the "successors of the manga industry".

    Ah, just realized I should make this a sticky thread. If others have new/additional info as it comes up, probably tag Ryokugyu or tag me so I can edit the thread.

    Oda's time management seems off. 15 years off. :laughing:

    Thank you for yet again providing information. It’s definitely interesting. Of course, I’ll just see what happens and stick along for the ride. I, for one, am glad that he’s doing something he enjoys. It’s better for everyone involved that way. Let’s hope he’s able to continue to do so whilst caring for himself and balancing some semblance of a family life. As much as I enjoy the series, balance is important. While art can bloom from misfortune, I’m surmising that an overall happy, healthy (in all ways) Oda would be better in the long run. ^_^

    Useless? Have you already forgotten that Coby:
    • Stopped Akainu chasing after Luffy and Jinbe although he knew that Akainu would kill him
    • Protected civilians during the Rocky Port Incident
    • Rescued Dressrosa's royal family from pirate ambush

    Maybe because she is allied with Buggy who is a Shichibukai.

    You're welcome.
    Oda's definitely referenced that being married and becoming a father made him a better person and thus a better mangaka. The health issues are still trending in the wrong direction though.
    I literally forgot about all of this. This eventually has to come up, so maybe after the war against the Government.

    Maybe, but it'll be nice to see Coby get his redemption some day. :)

    Probably because we haven't seen her in a long time. I'd also like to see whatever happened to a lot of the East Blue characters. Captain Morgan, Don Kreig and Gin, Kuro and even Arlong.

    I know Arlong was sent to jail, but it'd be nice to see him and Nami meet again so she can get some sweet revenge ;)

    That's a great point. I can remember the anime having a scene of Kuro on a ship/looking out at the ocean after his defeat. Arlong had the cover story arc, but I can't recall anyone else making any appearance. I 100% agree that it would be hilarious and oh so fitting to see Nami easily handle Arlong. Luffy has to see Bon-chan again, so hopefully we get to see it happen then.

    But I guess with the story so jammed pack, Oda just can't fit previous baddies unless they are going to play some sort of role in the future (Croc, Enel, Lucci, Caesar, etc.).

    I feel bad for his wife. Though I think she probably don't mind about it that much and Oda will fulfill this one even if delayed and in a way more extravagant way than he expected (he has more money now).

    3D2Y, and Sanji and Jinbe says hi.

    I hope he won't let us down.

    The bona fide Yonko Luffy? All Straw Hats are Haki-unlocked? Expanded Grand Fleet and protectorates?

    Good point. People who do work for fun always are the most successful.
