On December 18th on the ninth floor of the mall Shibuya walking tour In Tokyo the special exhibition for the twentieth anniversary of the beginning of the publication of the manga, written and illustrated by Tite Kubo, BLEACHING. There (where no pictures should be taken) various authors have created illustrations of the franchise with a special message dedicated to the author and his work. One of them was Eiichiro Oda, Manga writer One piecewho left Kubo a strange message:

ยซYears ago, Kubo publicly announced on the radio, "I hate Oda-san." Do you want to know if I hold a grudge for Kubo? Yes I will! Other than that, I didn't find his entire statement to be particularly rude. I actually don't like Kubo considering his boldness to make such a public statement. I remember Kubo's debut manga as we're about the same age. I thought, โ€œWow, this new mangaka has good drawing skills. Your idea is good too. His drawings eloquently tell us that he's a pretty safe guy. Now that you've mentioned me, I am posting here with 100% confidence that someone like Kubo is a super competitive worker. You must be embarrassed now, Tite Kubo. You are a very hardworking man! Congratulations on the 20th anniversary of BLEACH! We'll have a drink together soonยป.
