Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece, opened his house to the television show Honmadekka!? TV. The TV crew visited Oda’s house and interviewed him(his face was always covered by a Luffy picture). The show aired yesterday(January 9, 2019) on Fuji TV.
Here’s what was revealed about Oda and One Piece:
·Oda’s workplace is attached to his house;
·Oda has about 10 assistants. When he’s concentrated working, he needs total silence and doesn’t even speak;
·Oda said the One Piece is not going to be about “family”, or something that the Straw Hats will “find inside themselves” like the end of the Wizard of Oz. Meaning it’s gonna be a real reward (he had already said this in an interview years ago);
·They ask him if Ace is ever coming back to life and he says no;
·Oda has the end of One Piece already in mind. He said One Piece will be over 100 volumes;
·Oda sleeps from 9 to 12 in the morning. His staff sleeps from 5 to 12 in the morning;
·If someone predicted the end of One Piece, would he change it? Yes, he would;
·Oda was planning to do Amazon Lily later in the story, but then decided to do it earlier before his daughter went to school;
They also showed all the crazy stuff he has in his house, like a shark mounted in his toilet(walls and light make it look it it’s in ocean), a crane machine, a 100 inch TV (had to break a wall to get it in!) and a real size Terminator figurine(and tons of others).
