    Eiichiro Oda and Kohei Horikoshi ( My Hero Academia's creator ) made an interview. Here is the summary of it : ( doing my best to translate this from Arabic, if i see anything new i'll add it to this thread )

    - Horikoshi says that Oda was always his top inspiration since he was 16 years old. ( he's 31 years old now )

    - In Volume 23 of ONE PIECE ( during Alabasta arc ), Horikoshi, who was a highschool student at that time, participated in the making of that volume by sending a drawing. Oda liked the drawing and accepted it to be published in the volume. Horikoshi couldn't believe it and he told his mom about it.

    - Horikoshi says he loves Arlong Park and especially the dialog between Luffy and Nami.

    - Oda says that Horikoshi is the future of Shonen Jump and will be the leader of the next generation of manga artists.

    - Oda says that his daughter sings My Hero Academia's songs in the bus. At home, his daughter often asks him " Dad is One Piece gonna be alright ? ", because she's too worried about One Piece.

    - Horikoshi says that at first he tried to draw a protagonist like Luffy but he couldn't.

    - Oda watched My Hero Academia's movie that just came out.

    - Oda : How many volumes will My Hero Academia feature ?
    Horikoshi: I think 30.
    Oda: then make it 50.
    Horikoshi: I don't think i can go that far ...
    Oda: regardless of whether you can do it or not, that's the only way you can reach that number. ( 50 volumes )
    Horikoshi: What about you Oda-san ? Have you already decided on how many volumes will ONE PIECE feature ?
    Oda: I did, but i'm sure the number will end up being more than i planned.

    - At the end of the interview:

    Horikoshi: I'm gonna do my best to surpass ONE PIECE !
    Oda: I'm not gonna lose !

    It's adorable. Horikoshi is inspired by One Piece, and Oda's daughter loves it a lot!

    Oda now has his bet for the next generation. That Shanks-Luffy feels.

    One Piece might not be perfect, but I personally think no mangas/animes could beat it in terms of the plot, characters, and story development. Well, putting aside the WCI arc of course...
    During the interview in which he said One Piece was 70% complete, he didn't even sound confident lol so I'm not sure whether we can really trust his calculation or not.
