In 2019 the news portal AnimeNewsNetwork (also known as ANN) published an article about the franchise One piecewhere various information about the manga and the author was written, Eiichiro Oda. One part in particular was the origin of a story that remains to this day, a story that says that «Oda will change the One Piece ending if the ending of the story is ever known».
The excerpt from the article reads: «Oda mentioned that she had thought about the end of the manga since graduating from college, and asked Sanma Akashiya, the host of the show What would he do if a fan deduced the ending that Oda wrote about? Oda replied that he would change developments if this situation occurred». Well, this story has turned out to be completely wrong in part.
In fact, to avoid confusion, Oda said he would change the ending of the story if a fan guessed it, but ... during the last installment of the show One Piece TV talk show, the former editor of Eiichiro Oda, Isakimentioned that the story is not entirely true.

According to Isaki, Oda never meant it The author has long planned the ending and he obviously wouldn't throw away all of his years of planning for such a useless reason like a fan deriving the path of the narrative. In summary, it is now evident that The story, circulated as absolute truth, was nothing more than a joke from the author.
