In 2016, an earthquake struck the city of Kumamoto, causing over 5 billion yen in damage. However, on that occasion, the capital of the prefecture of the same name received quite significant donations from a person none other than Eiichiro Oda, the creator of ONE PIECE

Kumamoto is indeed the hometown of Sensei, and when he heard about the earthquake, he took it to heart, primarily providing economic aid to the community. Oda tore up two checks in favor of the territory 300 and 500 million yen (2.3 million euros and just under 4 million euros) to help the city recover from the natural disaster.

To thank him for the donation, Kumamoto Prefecture paid homage to the author by placing a ONE PIECE themed statue in the most damaged areas, more precisely the members of Luffy's crew. There are now few Mugiwara missing, while the last one revealed in the past few hours was dedicated to the occupation archaeologist. Nico Robin. You can take a look at the statue in question thanks to the photo that was taken at the inauguration and flooded at the end of the news.

Instead, what do you think of this new statue made in honor? Eiichiro Oda, you like it? Please let us know as usual with a comment below.
