Recently, One Piece mangaka Eiichiro Oda made his first television appearance in a short interview with Fuji TV’s Daijirou Enami. For One Piece Film Gold, Oda and Enami met one again, this time for a longer interview. Enami also revealed that Oda has told him one huge bombshell during those interviews.
According to Enami, when he asked Oda if he has already laid plans for the final panel for the One Piece manga, Oda reportedly answered “Yes!” emphatically. The legendary mangaka also assured that this final manga panel would be “very cool.”
In Oda’s first interview, he chose to hide his face, to the amusement of his fans. The mangaka is mostly secretive due to his busy schedule, though he periodically makes his opinions heard every now and then.
