    It's odd how no one has ever commented, in-story, about Zoro losing his eye.

    Does it matter? Luffy has a big X-scar in his torso and no one really talks about it either.

    Yep, people getting hammered, no matter what day, is pretty common. It is pretty much required that you go to drinking party after work, refusing is seen as rude and can seriously endanger your career, or even your position.

    This summarizes it well https://www.aljazeera.com/features/2...-drink-problem

    Which comes with the irony that Korea has a huge prejudice against other drugs like weed. If a public person is known to have smoked, their career will likely end.

    Here is my summary of the interview between Oda and Watsuki in “Rurouni Kenshin Exhibition official artbook” published last week.
    Other than this summary, they talked about manga technique about how to make good drawings.


    Shortly after OP started (1997-2000), Oda told Watsuki that Zoro would become a one-eyed character in the future.

    After hearing about it, Watsuki gave up his idea to create a one-eyed protagonist in Gun Blaze West that was supposed to be serialized soon.
    Actually he wanted to avoid the situation that some audience may consider Oda stole Watuski’s idea.

    Watsuki says he’d like to know why Zoro has become one-eyed, but Oda doesn’t answer this question

    Watsuki asks Oda about the rumor that OP will end in 5 years. Oda replies that someone over 40 years old shouldn’t draw weekly serialization manga.

    It’s well known that Oda planned to finish OP in 5 years before serialization, but according to Watsuki, Oda told him before starting OP that he would finish it in 10 years…

    When Watsuki met Oda (19-20 years old) for the first time, he felt Oda looked younger than his age, so he was worried if Oda could do a decent job as an assistant.
    But soon Watsuki realized there was nothing to worry.

    Like the assistants (ex. Takehiko Inoue/Haruto Umezawa) in City Hunter studio, many assistants in Watsuki’s studio have succeeded as mangaka now.
    This is thanks to editor Hisashi Sasaki (now working in VIz)’s plan that if he put promising young assistants together into one studio, they would compete with each other and grow up.

    Oda and other assistants didn’t complain when Watsuki scolded about their work because all of them trusted his personality.

    Oda enjoyed reading Kenshin’s fight against Garden-Keepers. He started working as Watsuki’s assistant around the time when Hajime Saito appeared. Oda worked under Watsuki for 4 months.

    Oda re-read Rurouni Kenshin before this interview, but he closed the volume with embarrassment when he saw a female character he drew as an assistant.
    The character looked so Oda-ish that she stood out too much in the crowd. Watsuki describes she looks like Nami wearing Kimono rather than Rurouni Kenshin character.lol

    This is because Oda had a strong belief that his drawings should be much different from other mangakas even when he worked as an assistant.
    Oda didn’t want his drawing influenced by other mangaka because otherwise his drawing originality would gradually fade away.

    A hotel called “Oda-ya” appeared In Rurouni Kenshin chapter, but it was an idea from another assistant, not from Oda himself. lol

    Watsuki drew Straw Hats’ jolly roger in chapter 161 to celebrate OP serialization.
    Hidden:

    Oda is glad that Watsuki calls him “genius” in this interview. When Watsuki read chapter 1, he was convinced that OP would become the best in popularity survey among Jump readers.

    Especially he was impressed at Luffy’s words “I’m going to become the king of the pirates!”.
    Watsuki explains that Japanese version of this phrase “Kaizoku Ou ni ore wa naru 海賊王におれはなる” sounds way better than “Ore wa Kaizoku Ou ni naru おれは海賊王になる” due to 7-5 pattern as seen in traditional Japanese poem although sadly this difference is lost in translation.
    (TN: Luffy’s VA mentioned this difference before as well.)

    When Oda drew chapter 1, he used a copy machine in Watsuki’s studio because Oda didn’t have his own machine yet.
    Oda moved from his hometown to Tokyo, near Watsuki’s house since he didn’t know where to live.

    Oda is only 5 years younger than Watsuki, and other assistants were around the same age as Oda.
    He says it felt like they were all “comrades” including Watsuki rather than the relationship between master and apprentice.
    Oda recalls he thought maybe it would be the happiest moment in his entire life.

    Oda says Watsuki is similar to Kenshin in that Watsuki went super-serious mode only when drawing manga.

    When Watsuki read “Romance Dawn”, prototype of OP, he gave an advice to Oda that Luffy’s behavior should be improved so that audience can feel as if Luffy is acting on his own will.

    Oda considers his drawing style of putting so much pressure on his pen is not appropriate for digital-drawing on a tablet.
    Digital devices allow us to fix drawings so easily that Oda thinks he can’t help spending too much time on fixing his drawings.

    While Watsuki appreciates Rurouni Kenshin exhibition being held, he is kinda embarrassed because he thinks his drawings are not as attractive as professional illustrators.
    This is why he has not told much about this event yet.

    At the end of the interview, Oda praises, “You have an amazing personality, Watsuki-sensei.
    People love Rurouni Kenshin probably because of your seriousness toward your fans.Fans fully understand it, so they love Watsuki-sensei.
    Hopefully you will draw manga forever.”

    *I hope my English doesn't fail to convey the heartwarming atmosphere in their interview..

    Thank you, sandman.

    So Oda made One Piece and the other assistant made Vagabond. I tried it twice, but it was lacking. The other assistant must be super jealous of Oda. Not to mention he made a sports manga, yikes.

    None of these number of years matter to me. Only the fact that he doesn't want to do it weekly while over 40 is important. I believe that more than 5 years. Oda has to be like 45-48 iirc.

    Oda wasn't disciplined enough to put his style to the side smh. Shitty assistant. He should be embarrassed.

    Everyone is impressed by Luffy's words. I don't see the issue in telling his pal about Zoro's eye, unless he wants him to experience it with the rest of the world.

    Inoue was not Watsuki's assistant. He was an assistant in City Hunter Studios.

    One other famous Watsuki assistant is Hiroyuki Takei (Shaman King).

    Luffy's "Red Roc" was originally called "Gigant Red Hawk" in the rough draft, but Oda decided to upgrade it. Editor Iwasaki confirmed Roc is based on a legendary bird.

    source: "Shueisha Weekly Playboy" published today

    According to the magazine, Oda said, "If I'm allowed to draw 30 pages each week, I'll soon finish submitting them". Editor said Oda spends much time on deciding how to cram his ideas into 17 pages.

    There are about 10 fonts in OP, all of which are specified by editor, not Oda

    Probably because everyone in the world saw precisely where Luffy got his scar from. (except for the people's of Wano and I presume Zou as well). To the point of asking about Zoro's scar, Luffy and Zoro have a quick chat about where he was whisked off to in chapter 604. I feel like the current fight would be a great time for whatever Luffy learned to be brought up if they end up doing some sort of double maneuver.
