Eiichiro Oda Tells Editor To Die For One Piece

Eiichiro Oda, the creator of the famous anime series One Piece is reported to have a very crazy schedule. The mangaka is known for his strict work ethic which apparently he also likes to see among his Shueisha staff members working on his best-selling manga.

In an interview Shueisha published in lieu of promoting the latest One Piece Film Gold, one of the last two films that the anime has so far - this piece of information was revealed. One of the former editors of the manga, Naoki Kawashima said that he remembered what it's like working with Oda who works really hard.

Kawashima shared laughingly that one of the things that stick on him was when he was told by Oda to "die for One Piece." Kawashima shared that during that time he reacted "what, really?" but even when he said so he was moved by those words.

He thought then that Oda was such a person who works with such a resolution reports Anime News Network. Another editor even compared the great mangaka to an f1 race car while comparing him and the rest of the editorial team to common Japanese compact cars. Adding that sometimes remaining at the same pace is a bit hard for them.

The interview has garnered reactions praising Oda's work ethics. Some were amazed that he has barely puts the manga on hiatus and has rarely taken a break from it.

Kotaku adds that one of the amazing things about Oda was that aside from having such a work ethic, is the fact that he managed to maintain that schedule and has not grown soft even after the success and money he has been raking. You can feel that Oda is still working hard and so does his staff.

On another note, Oda has said that the biggest selling series is about 65-percent done and that he knows how it will already end. The mangaka hopes that he can maintain his pace and not have the so-called "Togashi Disease" which is what fans used to describe when the artist seems to no longer want to continue his manga and leaves his work on hiatus.
