Tite Kubo, the author of Bleach and Burn the Witch, once stated that he “hates” One Piece author Eiichiro Oda on a Japanese public radio show.
sandman (@sandman_AP) shared the information on Twitter. In 2021, Oda talks about Kubo declaring “I hate Oda” on the radio. The One Piece author did not take it as a personal disagreement and instead complemented Kubo’s artistic talent. As the tweet mentioned, Kubo drew an illustration of Monkey D. Luffy for the 10th anniversary book One Piece Treasure 10, released in 2007.
Kubo’s statement made in joke
Twitter user Craftsdwarf Fantasia (@Craftsdwarf) provided more context for Kubo’s “controversial” claim. When Kubo’s editor asked him to make his manga more like One Piece, he responded with a statement that he absolutely hates his fellow mangaka. The radio host laughed after Kubo gave a humorous answer, clearly showing that Kubo was joking. Like Kubo, Oda has also publicly expressed his frustration with the editors. Oda revealed that when he first started his career, an editor told him that his girls weren’t “cute”.
While Oda was preparing for the final One Piece side story, Kubo ended Bleach’s story on August 22, 2016. However, the anime series produced by Studio Pierrot ended its original run on 2012 without adapting the final plot in the series. Ten years later, Bleach: Thousand Years of Blood is now its own animated series, giving anime fans a worthy end to the Bleach they’ve been waiting for a decade for.
Despite the hype for Bleach: A Thousand Years of Blood, an animator working on the One Piece anime believes the pirate-themed series will provide a greater sense of suspense than any other anime. any other images released this year. Engage in friendly banter like Kubo did to Oda. In addition to Kubo, Oda also had a friendly rivalry with Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto while working on their respective weekly series for Weekly Shōnen Jump.
One Piece is available on multiple streaming services like Crunchyroll, Netflix, and Tubi.
