Over the years, Eiichiro Oda has proven to be a versatile writer, with a great passion for mythology, both Japanese and non-Japanese, which shows in many of the narrative situations ONE PIECE. The Maestro also has other interests, both in other areas of entertainment and in mobile gaming, according to an interview.

In fact, as you can see in @OP_SPOILERS2023's post reported at the bottom of the page, Oda-sensei said that he spent a lot of money on some apps downloaded on his smartphone and in particular on any of the available Gacha games related to ONE PIECEin which he laughingly admitted that he spent quite a bit of money to get a super rare Shanks.

In the second part of the post, which changes the subject entirely, it is underlined how the editor Sugita, excited by the delay in the delivery of the chapter, was surprised and moved after reading the pages sent by Oda. It was about them Chapter 757 where Rebecca meets Cyrus. The mangaka himself later admitted that he cried while drawing these panels, saying that unless the author weeps or is touched, readers would never be touched.

Finally, we remind you that Zoro has been immortalized in a precious collector's figurine facing Kaido with the Nine Swords technique and we leave you a beautiful Boa Hancock cosplay disguised as a bride
