The Dark Rise of One Piece: Anime's Loneliest Creator - The Eiichiro Oda Story!
Is One Piece the greatest Story ever told? A full Essay / Video Documentary on Eiichiro Oda and One Piece. To me One Piece is a masterpiece but it took a lot of sacrifices for Oda to become the best selling mangaka of all time. I just hope I did him justice. This is the Rise and Controversies of Anime and Manga's most dedicated Creator.
YouTube Documentary:
Upvote Goal is 100 (I hope you enjoy or learn something new)
At the time this is bring made is being made Eiichiro Oda has amassed an astonishing 230,000,000 Net Worth and is the creator of the highest selling manga of all time. One Piece has sold so many copies, that not only is Oda in the Guinness book of world records for the most copies ever sold of any manga or comic but it also puts his name in the top 10 highest selling fiction authors in human history. Engraving the name Eiichiro Oda next to William Shakespeare and JK Rowling. Oda is without a doubt one of the greatest and most creative story tellers of all time.

But this level us success and talent doesn’t come without sacrifices. Odas road to success is paved with A plethora of health issues both physical and mental, arrest and loneliness. One Piece has brought joy to millions of people and its success is something that Oda has dreamed of since he was 4 years old watching anime and Disney cartoons. Will act as a celebration of oda’s well earned achievements but also the over looked acknowledgment of the sacrfises, a-lot of Artist have to suffer through for our enjoyment, and dark untold truth of the manga industry. A Mangaka who escaped the industry even referred to it as “voluntary enslavement”. with an more infamous example being when kishmoto Creator Naruto and a rival of oda, finally finished his popular long running series, he reached out to oda to brag that he can now finally take a walk with his kid on a sunny day which would send the one piece author into a spiral but also motivated him to keep working so he could take walks with his family too one day.
Oda was born January 1st, 1975 in Kumamoto City Japan. From an early age he was obsessed with all things animated and cinema. Everything from Anime, Disney cartoons and Hollywood movies. By the age of 4 Oda had already began reading manga and immediately after he found out creating manga was a career! He couldn’t believe such a cool job existed and declared he would become a Mangaka to quote “avoid getting a real job” The manga that contributed the most to this epiphany was a series called “The Monster Kid” by fukiko a fujio. A story about a kid and his companions traveling through realms battling various Monsters. Oda claims that one of the panels from this specific manga was the first that made him want to draw and he would go on to draw endless copies of his favorite panel trying to get his drawings to look as good as Fujio’s. He simultaneously had fallen in love with an anime called “Vicky The Viking”
Monster Kid
A show that told the adventures of Vicky, a young Viking who would use his Witty and imaginative mind to help his friends out of tight situations.

Vicky the Viking
Vicky would spark odas life long fascinations with pirates and plant the seed for a idea that would eventually grow into one piece. you can see Vickies influenced sprinkled through out oda’s work. When odas dad found out about his sons newfound ambitions he decided to teach him to paint as he himself was a talented oil painter. oda credited his dad for his creative side and still shows off his dads paintings as the proud son he is. Oda became quite the proficient painter as well. One of his original paintings he did for a school project still hangs in his elementary school to this day
When oda got a little older and his manga taste matured He gravitated toward the Weekly shonen Jump. A anthogly of mostly action-based manga that targets an older demographic.
Oda also had started junior high around this time but admitted that it was rough for him and that he often didn’t enjoy it. The only time he would really feel happy was when he knew their was a new jump issue coming out the next day.
He loved Everything from legendary Gag series Kochikame, to the action comedy Kinnikuman.
A popular series in the Anthology called “Capatin Tsubasa” would even inspire oda to join his school soccer team just like the characters in the show. As you can tell he was a very impressionable and remains so to this day many of odas characters and themes are based of various pop culture icons like Jim Carrey, Eminem, the terminator and reservoir dogs to name a few you might know but also various Japanese acting and historical legends.
oda never dropped his love for soccer with his favorite team being Brazil. Oda revealed in a q and a that in the real world luffy would be from Brazil so I can’t help but to think this is influenced by “Capatin Tsubasa” oda would find his biggest influences though when he stubbled apon the series Dragon Ball. He was obsessed Toriyma’s art style and reread it more than any other manga. He loved his character designs and practicing them is why he said he got so good at drawing legendary buff dudes. But the most impactful thing Dragon Ball ever did for oda was show him how impactful manga could be.
When dragon ball was first gaining popularity oda remembers going to school and just seeing how his peers would react to the weekly releases. One day he would see his school get thrown into chaos by a single chapter.
“When Krillin died in Dragon Ball, the whole school was thrown into turmoil. I remember someone kept running and shouting in the school, "Krillin died!!" with Jump in his hand."
Seeing the influence a great story could have would completely reshaped the way oda looked at manga and reenforce his desires to master the craft himself.
This feeling would last with oda and the 2nd year of jr high he would start developing his talent and began drawing sketches for a pirate based manga. Over the next several years oda would continue draw everyday in his free time even at the cost of his sleep and friends. this would be foreshadowing for how obsessive he can be when he puts his mind to something. At the age of 17 he would quit soccer in an attempt to take his mangaka ambitions more seriously. He had learned about a very prestigious manga completion from a company called shueisha. It was called the tezuka award and it was given to the best manga submitted by aspiring creators.
During the same time Oda had taken a liking to an Western American Film called Young Guns, this would go on to inspire him to work 4 months on his first full-length Manga titled Wanted! it was an action gag comedy set in a western themed world.
Oda was very proud of this creation and was excited to submit it, but he was also concerned of his parents and teachers disapproving of his decisions to focus all his efforts onto something not school related. to fix this problem would submit his work under the pseudonym Tsuki Himizu Kikondo.
Being the unknown prodigy he was he would win 2nd Place and take home a 500,000 Yen cash prize. Winning this award at such a young age would send shock waves through the manga industry. many professionals within the business started keeping their eyes on him. In early 1993, Oda would go on to get several interviews and his Manga would get published in Shueisha's Mezase Mangaka! Around this time he would drop his pseudonym and start going by his real name. Showing that he was growing a lot more confident in his work. His first professional interview would even be published in Oda’s Hometown’s most prominent newspaper. Odas life was changing fast. It was getting harder and harder for even his haters to doubt his talent. Later that year he graduated high school and entered Kyushu Tokai University under the architecture program. although he never used his architectural talents in the actual field,
I can’t help but to think in played a massive part in his unique city and island designs in one piece. During university oda would continue submitting more of his work to Shueisha. Not knowing his previous win already qualified him for a spot for a monthly off shoot of the weekly Shonen Jump.This spot is is where oda would release his next manga. “God's Gift for the Future”
Gods Gift
This manga followed a pickpocket named bran that wanted to change his way of life but couldn’t stop his bad habits. through a series of events he winds up with a magic death note book gifted from god that can not alive anyone by writing the exact date and event in the notebook. look im just gonna say it. Gods gift for the future came out in October 1993 and Death note came out a decade later in 2003. Im not saying Ohba copied teenage odas work but there are alot of similarities and I found some threads that already been disscussing the topic.
If you read all of odas work in release order, you can see how each one gets progressively better and more complex. And he defiantly has two things he was good at from the begginning. Character development and world building. Part this is due to oda admitted just loving the characters he creates and he even said cries while drawing emotional or sad scenes they have to go through.
But being the near physcoeopathically ambitious machine he was. even at a young age He wasn’t satisfied with only being in a Monthly release magazine so the following year in 1994 he decided to enter a contest named Hop-Step Awards with a Manga named Ikki Yako, Oda won first place with Ikki Yako giving him his first undisputed success as a Mangaka.
Ikki Yako
With the back back awards and victories, oda was finally believing he had an actual chance at his dream coming to fruition, so the same year in 1994 he would drop out of university to pursue he career as a professional Mangaka. Dropping out of college is a huge deal in Japan. Even if you become a success some people will look down on you as school is seen as a right of passage to many Japanese citizens. Not as a option as it is in some other countries. Japans unique out look on hard work educationally and professionally will contribute to the dark concepts we will explore in the latter part of the video. And if you remember oda specifically didnt like school and often struggled to find enjoyment while being there. With some impressive accolades under his belt and a new found freedom oda would move to Tokyo under the charge of his editor Karou Kushima this was his officially start as as a true Mangaka. Oda had gotten a job at shonen Jump as an assistant as many inspiring mangakas do. He made practically no money but it was a necessary stepping stone all mangaka have to take if they want shot of publishing there own work one day. Some work as assistants for years or even decades with never getting that chance and often break under the extreme exceptions pushed onto them by the industry.
Odas first assistant Job was for shinobu kaitani’s midoriyama police gang. It was only for the last few chapters of the series and would last just a month. But Oda claims it was extremely busy month for him and he gained an immense amount of experience about the production of a professional manga.
After his manga finished Kaitani would leave Shonen Jump, Oda was sent to another Mangaka assisting creator Masaya Tokuhiro through the final years of their Manga Jungle King Tar-Chan. Tokuhiro was also the creator of the more famous Kappaman.
Oda would work for Tokuhiro for a very long time. Tokuhiro was infamous for being very resistant with allowing others to help with the important parts of his work. This was hard for oda because the free time he got after his 12-14 hour shifts he would spend drawing cool ideas for his own stories and ideas he thought might work for tokukiros but his boss would never even entertain one idea, but oda would still learn alot during this time period. specifically improving his skills of background and crowd art. During this time oda would create and submit serval of his own stories to his editor kushima. and pretty much all of them would be immediately dismissed. This would hurt but he would try to not take the harsh criticism to heart. But this would all change when Oda would create and release his next manga Monsters!
After throughly rereading it and then going back to all of his old works he began to see many of his inadequacies. This motivated oda to work even harder to fix his mistakes. He started thinking maybe his editor was right telling him he wasn’t ready yet. Oda was now sleeping only 5 hours night and began skipping meals because they took up to much time that he could be using to improve his craft.
When Kappaman ended in Mid-1996 his new boss would also move on from shusisha and oda entered his final assistant tenure under the esteemed Nobuhiro Watsuki. Working on the best selling Manga Rurouni Kenshin or Samauri X.
This would be huge for oda! Watsuki was one of the most popular mangaka not just in shonen jump but in all of Japan! He also was known to have a way more laid back style then odas previous editors. Watsuki allowed assistants to be involved in his work, speak their mind and would even review their ideas seriously. that doesn’t mean he would improve them but he felt being involved and getting hands experience was the best way to learn not just busy work for hours on in.
Oda would thrive in this environment! and one of his ideas would actually pass all the hurtles and he even was credited in the Rurouni Kenshin Manga for coming up with the Character Honjō Kamatari. The great scythe. The was huge for oda and added alot of creditably to his suggestions moving forward. Oda would never forget the faith watuski sensei had in him and unfortunately this would come with some grave consciences later on.
Oda was enjoying his time in watsuki studio but he remained troubled by the fact his ideas for Manga drafts continuously got rejected.
Oda decided since all his new ideas wasn’t cutting he would revamp his original idea for an anime. In a last resort style effort oda began work on a pirate themed manga. He decided to call it Romance Dawn. Not feeling hopeful oda would submit it to his editor. But to odas surprise Mishima was very impressed by it and would approve for it to go into further development immediately. It would debut in a shonen jump summer special and received much praise from the readers. During the production of romance dawn oda would fall under the supervision of a new editor takanori Asada who would also believe in romance dawn. He would arrange for oda to fill the gap in the weekly shonen jump that was coming up. This was an incredibly rare and unique opportunity. Oda accepted and immediately created a 2nd version of romance dawn! Within 2 weeks it was approved by Asada as well. But a weird thing was happening. The readers Loved the unique Pirate themed story and odas handlers believed in it and saw the potential greatness in oda’s work but the higher ups where very skeptical and doubtful of Oda’s concepts and refused it entirely!
Romance Dawn
They didn’t wanna try anything new. They wanted more of what worked. Basically dragon ball 2.0s but oda specially set out to make the exact opposite, this was because of 2 of odas earlier influences. Dragon ball, He loved the fights and designs but wished it was more story driven and a much more random influence was the wizard of oz. Oda loved the adventure aspect of it and implemented it into many of his works but he hated the ending of the classic movie. He thought the “The real treasure was the friends we made along the way” troup was stupid. That fans deserve build up and pay off. Oda basically was inventing the slow burn of mangas. That pull you in through world building not just flashy fights. Lucky for Oda asada wasn’t having any of his supervisors nonsense and would wage war on them proclaiming that oda has something great on his hands and he would continue this campaign for months.
and in May 1997, One Piece had finally been approved for publishing in Weekly Shonen Jump. If you love one piece make Sure you show resect for asada because it wasn’t for him we might have never been blessed which such a great story. Remember this was odas last ditch effort and who knows what would happen if it had failed.
Soon after, Oda resigned from being Watsuki Assistant on good terms, and became a full-fledged professional Mangaka himself at the age of 22. His adventure was about to reach hights and pitfalls that he could have never imagined.
And if you wanna follow me own my own adventure to be the pirate king of YouTube. This video was suppose to be saved for my 5000 subscribers special but I was so excited to drop it I couldn’t wait!
it would be cool if you could get this reddit thread to 200 upvotes
One Piece:
This is it Oda’s obsessive nature and hard work has payed off and he wasn’t about to let it go to waste. He would double down his effort once more and from this point forward things would start moving incredible quickly.
Oda would take everything’s he learned and created over the years and start immediately drafting the first 8 chapters of One Piece. Asada would lend him a hand and help him refine his ideas and offer some advice he thought could give One Piece a higher chance of success. He gave oda the advice of spicing up the first couple chapters. He thought oda had a great concept but that it wasn’t interesting enough and needed more stakes. Something too hook people and leave them wanting more. This lead to the idea of the Shanks incident in the first chapter. I think this was a great decision and set the tone for the rest of the story.
On July 1997 Weekly Shonen Jump #34 had premiered the first chapter of One Piece titled Romance Dawn giving homage to his Romance Dawn Manga that started it all. When they finished they was pretty sure they had something great on their hands but they was so nervous in wouldn’t do well. They couldn’t shake their butterflies and when the 1st Volume released Oda and his editor would hide in a bookstore and watch the customers and when they seen a little boy buying the one piece volume they would shout with pure joy! This is the cutest one piece fact and know and definitely one of my favorites because it shows how much one piece really means to him. His passion would blend onto the pages and pay off. By the end of the 1st year one piece would sell 300,000 copies. Making it a hit.
But this is again nothing compared to what would come. only one year later this number would grow to 6 million copies sold with no sign of slowing down. By 1999 one piece had reached over 17,000,000 prints and would receive a full length anime adaption that would be an instant smash across Japan. By 2001 oda was only 26 years old and the world was at his finger tips. He was a best selling mangaka and was getting all the interviews and festival bookings he could handle. But the most life altering appearance would happen at Jump festa 2002.
Why watching the performances he would see 22 year old Chiaki Inaba a model, idol, actress, Campaign girl and Race Queen. A artistic genius in her own right. During her show she would perform in a Nami swan cosplay. Showing her love for her favorite anime character that happen to be created by Oda who was in the audience. Her beauty and talent left oda smitten. It was like a romance anime scene. He had no choice but to introduce him self later the same day. They would hit it off and her personality had him hooked. Over the next 2 years they would begin seeing each other, squeezing in dates between her performance and oda busy work schedule. In 2004 they would get married opting to have a private wedding with only their closes friends attending.
Around 2004 one piece and shonen jump was more popular then ever. Manga and anime was spreading world wide. but there was an unprecedented surge in anime’s popularity in the west. The catalyst for this weeb take over would be thanks to 3 shonen Anime. One Piece, Naruto and Bleach. That would be deemed the Big 3. A titled bestowed on the 3 most popular anime of the 2000s. 3 series that completely carried shonen jump in this time period. Every anime fan in the world had one of these 3 in their top spot. later this era would be called the “Golden Age” of shonen Jump. The gap in sales of these 3 vs other series was mind blowing. And to this day the consistency of their popularity would never be repeated.
All 3 of these mangaka where living their dreams but anyone with their level of ambition wants to be the best not just top 3. The 2 creators with most smoke for each other would be One piece’s Oda and Bleach’s Kubo.
They 2 manga titans have had a 20 year beef that have left their fans constantly comparing the 2. The origins of this entanglement actually started because of our previously mention manga award that oda won for romance dawn. Kubo had entered the same competion and felt his win was a sure in and that it would be the launch to his own professional Mangaka adventure! But after bleach was out voted by romance dawn pushing his dreams back years. Bleach wouldn’t be released in jump til 2001! Kubo would holds oda personally responsible. in a 2017 interview when asked how he felt about his rival and he would respond saying “ I hate Oda” and revealed the 2 had a hairy run in in the 1990s.
A few years later oda would have a chance to respond in his own interview during a bleach exibxit for its 20th anniversary. He was asked about Kubo and said “ years ago kubo publicly announced he hates me? Do you want to know if I hold a grudge?” “Yes I do” he went on to say he didn’t knew in kubo meant it in a perticaly rude way or in a competitive way. He said kubo has always had a competitive spirt and was a hard worker but that he does have some audacity, to to say that in public. Oda was letting everyone know he is still always down for the smoke. He would draw Kubo’s character ichigo in the one piece art style and submit it to the exhibition.
Oda Draws Ichigo
I love both anime but their lives sounding like real life anime rivals makes their series even better. It shows how much they both love and belive in their series.
Check here down
Oda and Naruto creator kishimoto also consider their self rivals but in a very different way. in 2015 oda admitted that Naruto is more popular than one piece world wide. He apricates it but it makes him jealous.
In 2016 kishimoto said he wanted to surpass one piece in manga sales but sadly was never able to before Naruto ended.
Since then one piece popularity in the rest of the world has exploded so the final results aren’t in yet. But either way
The 2 have been the dominate 2 in the world for 2 decades constantly exchanging spots.
They’re respect for each other is evident as shown Through out both series easters are hidden shouting out the others manga.
But the most wholesome but scary example happened in 2013. Oda had become notorious for his machine like work ethic. He was only sleeping 3 hours a night and often would sleep at his work desk so he could wake up and be able to get back to work faster. This would cause his health to disintegrate and he would be hospaitalized. Knowing oda doesn’t like to take days off kishimoto would show up to his hospital room to check on his friend and would be shocked to see oda working on a up and coming one piece chapter. Kishimoto understood this level of work ethic better than anyone else could as arguably the other most successful mangaka of all time. Instead of asking him to stop he pulled up a chair and helped oda with his work on which woukld relived to be the legendary Dressrossa arc. A personal favorite arc of mine as you can see my avatar is designs after the arcs antagonist. They wanted this arc to be special as to not let his fans down because of his sickness.

As of 2023 One Piece has sold more than 500 million copies. selling more copies than batman and harry potter. Oda is the best selling mangaka of all time and 10th highest selling fiction author in human history. The Anime adaptation of his manga is a smash hit and is growing more popular ever day. Olympians have stuck one piece posses before wining metals. Hollywood celebs have declared their love for one piece like averal lagive who eventual would send oda 2 songs for one of his movies, Jamie lee Curtis who mention robin as her favorite characters on several q and as, marvel director taika waititi rocked a luffy sweater on several occasions. One Piece film’s latest film release Earned over 15 billion yen making in the 6th highest grossing movie in Japanese history. The 4 year old that wanted to be a great manga would be so proud of oda but what has oda sacrificed for this level of success. We touched it own it a little in the kishimoto segment but to really understand or believe the truth that im about to tell you have to understand a terrifying concept in Japan called karoshi.
Karoshi as phenom in Japan that translate to “over work death” in Japan the work culture is alot more extreme then most people outside of Asia can even comprehend. Japan has a 0 excuse policy in many companies not all but many. In these environment you are expected to finish all the work you are giving no matter how long it takes you. Even if you do finish your work you are not permeated to leave until anyone who is your senior is finished and you are expected to go help then instead of going home to see your family.
In 2012 a documentary film maker by the name of allegra Pacheco visited Japan when she heard about the concept and was shocked to see how common this was. She would follow salavery men from their jobs and would discover dozens of them would pass out on the streets or on bus rides from complete exhaustion unable to even make it home or even move. these extreme hours leads to Japan having a high percent of work related deaths from stress heart attacks and sadly self inflicted.
As of 2022, 23 percent of Japanese workers logged more than 80 hours of over time each month. Because this 1 and 5 Japanese workers are at risk of passing away from Karoshi.
The Japanese government never even acknowledged this problem. That was until a 24 year old who had logged 105 hours of over time, wrote on social media that she was physically and emotionally shattered and leaped off a tall building to her end. Unfortunately this isn’t uncommon. Bcc said that it is the single highest C.O.D of men aged 20-44 in the country. there is even an infamous unalive your self forest in Japan that is the go to spot to do so. This forest gained world wide acknowledge when controversial youtuber Logan Paul went there for a day of vlogging and filmed a victim of karaoshi while his friends laughed.
Understand that this a different culture don’t judge them to harshly. Im not saying this work culture is okay but its a very complicated subject. There is a theory that this was Japan’s way of restoring its economy after world war 2. with a your company is your family and you should give it all to them mindset.
I dont think these traits of these phenom are a exactly comparable to oda for one reason. Oda does thing willingly. no one is forcing him to do this with his level of wealth and influence he could easy retire or reallocate the more time consuming work but instead he opts to take on the brunt of the load. This doesn’t make his fans any less concerned.
Based on odas own words and interviews with his editors Oda works 21 hours of a day. The few hours he sleeps is often not even concurrent but instead broken up into 30 minute intervals through his workday whenever he gets a chance. That way he doesn’t have to relocate and can get back to work faster. When he does sleep the 3 straight hours he aims for 2am-to 5am. That way he is still the first back at the office. Other mangaka in the industry refere to oda a machine. As even though he is producing a weekly manga his art is on pare with months release manga. as where manga like Vinland saga have entire months to work on releases oda has to come out with a chapter and episode every single week and it still competes with the season series in quality. He does all this with working with the smallest team possible so he can fill more attached to his work. This goes so far that when he has to re tell passed events. He re draws them instead of reusing old art work to save time like most artist.
His editors reportedly thinks and talks about one piece 24/7 even when he isn’t working. When his editor Naoki Kawashima joined odas team he said oda told him to “die for One Piece” he went on to insure him. If you destroy your health do to your work ethic. I will forever take care of your family financially.
Dont think of this as oda being a bad boss. Just a acknowledge of series they take what they are creating. I watched and read dozen of interviews in peroration for this video and I couldn’t find 1 of his employee that had anything negative to say about him. Everyone who has worked for oda said it it so fun and welcoming environment. That when you see how hard he works it makes you want to work hard to and do your part to contribute to the greatness that is one piece. Oda doesn’t even want fame he just wants to create a great series. In all his interviews he hinds his face or request to have it covered in post edits.
Japan loves oda. He can’t walk down the street without be swarmed by fans. In his interview grown man giggle with glee everytime he speaks. Which makes me happy they respect him as much as I do. That being said his unhealthy life leaves them very worried and oda knows his fans are concerned. even after 20 years he work schedule has eased up.
In a 2021 tv interview oda opened up about he doesn’t have time to bathe, shave or even eat. He has got so lost in work that his asstaince have to come and ask him to please eat something. He does just forget sometime but other times he doesn’t eat on purpose.
in 2012 oda said “The only way I can think of new ideas is to think about it alot without sleeping and eating. Because humans can only come up with truly new ideas when they reach they’re limit. So every time I am done with my manuscript I am completey exhausted.”
This statement is beautiful but sad to me.
Especially when you factor that oda has got moderate diabetes and goutes as a result of his work schedule and being in his work chair for so many hours at a time.
In the same interview he said he always bathes before seeing his family to wash off his work mode. but that he rarely gets a chance to see them. As we mentioned, after Naruto ended kishimoto bragged to oda he can now talk a walk with his son when ever he wanted as a flex to oda about finally finishing his series as a fellow obsessive he knew the kinda pressure oda lives under and the sacfrices he is making. Them have a personal relationship may have been a way of kishmoto pleading for oda to take a break, as they have even been to each others houses. Oda only gets to visit his home once a week as he sleeps in his studio the other 6 days. So his only sees his daughters and wife 4 times a month. One reason is he finds this necessary to keep his weekly deadlines. The 2nd but sadder reason is oda fears if he spends more time with them than that he will want to stop making one piece because he will miss his family to much… one of the only times oda wandered if he should quit one piece was on one of his weekly visits his daughter said “dad you are to busy to spend time with me”
Oda is currently Bringing in 30 million dollars a year from one piece royalties alone. He is currently the richest mangaka to ever live. So he is dedication to his craft is completly by choice as he has long since passed the threadsold of retirement wealth. Oda keeps going to make all of his fans and people who believe in him proud. In a marizine interview in 2017 oda said “My fans are worried about my short sleep but sleep is just a waste of time I prefer collecting information for manga. I want to become a robot that doesn’t need sleep. Even when I go on trips with my family I dont sleep much”
This level of obligation for his fans is endearing but it was his loyalty to his formal sensei that would cause the most damaging controversy in oda’s entire career.
In November of 2017 Tokyo Metropolitan Police lead a a raid on a residents house they had been investigating on suspicion of the sell of CP. During the analysis of the purps computer they found the evidence they needed but also a link that lead them Shockingly to the one and only Nobuhiro Watsuki. Yes the creator of rurouni kenshin and Sensei to our own Eichhiro Oda. Shortly after watsuki house and studio was raided. The investigators suspicions where unfortunately confirmed and over a 100 dvd was confiscated as evidence. With some of the victims of the tapes being as young as 10 years old. He was arrested and during the interrogation he immediately confessed and went into a unnecessary amount of detail to the investigators
“I like girls in the higher grades of elementary school to the second grade of junior High” After he was charged shuisha put his series on indefinite hiatus. This sent shock ways through Japan as up to this point he was one of best selling and most respected mangakas ever and lots of new rising talent came from his tutor-edge. His reputation was tarnished but he controversially received the lightest sentence legally possible. A fine of only 1800 $ and never served a single day in jail. People where understandably out raged when it became public.
Which is how oda stumbled into the cross hairs of this PR disaster.
It all started with a tweet from shonen jump stating oda and watauski will be doing a joint interview on April 24th 2020.
During the q and a Oda was asked what it was like working for watsuki and oda said “ I worked for him just under 4 months. Which Maybe the happiest moment in my entire life."
The fanbase was instantly split down the middle. With one side declaring that even remebering fondly about someone who did what watsuki was charged was blasphemy and that it was in away supporting him. This side even share a short lived “Cancel Oda” hash tag. The other side felt like since oda has never done anything of the sort him self and didn’t know anything about it, he shouldn’t be forced to rewrite his history that lead him to where he is now. Even Watuski wife didn’t know what he was up to. Oda has only have good things said about him from his employees and from what i can tell is a great kind person who has donated lots of money to charities and his hometown. even though i am bias as a one piece super fan. I think the truth as always lies somewhere in the middle. Oda is without a doubt though one of the greatest and most successful writers in human history but let me know what you think of Oda Sensei in the comments.

2023.05.31 03:07 NegativePast3826 Confusing / Toxic Friendship Advice (Transition to University)

Hey everyone!
I'm not sure if this is the right subreddit for this but I wanted some advice on a situation with a friend.
So background context:
I (18F) am entering university this September, and am feeling pretty conflicted about my relationship with my best friend (18F) and I don't know how to handle it. Initially, I assumed she would be going to another university, so we could just drift apart and I could maintain a casual relationship with her. However, it appears to be that we'll be going to the same university, for the same program. This program only has about 200 students, so likely our classes will be the same, and so will our social circle. Currently, we're in a program with 60 students for high school and taking all the same courses and classes. Many of our clubs and ecs also overlap because I can't go anywhere alone without making a scene. So I basically am with her all day, everyday at the moment.
The issue:
Before this friend, I used to be super social and had a lot of friends. However, she's quite antisocial, yet clingy. Previously, I would hang out with a bunch of different groups, and if I ever felt like the conversation was boring or making me uncomfortable I would walk off from the conversation and wander to another group (essentially I was a floater). Typically, groups wouldn't be bothered by me walking off. However, this friend began trailing me early in our friendship and wouldn't let me leave to go hang out with other friends on my own. Eventually, because she didn't want to hang out with other people, I would feel pressured to hang out with only her. Our high school cohort is about 60 students, so eventually people started to associate the two of us as a pair and would make remarks if I didn't hang out with her which furthered my isolation.
Additionally, she's very pessimistic and egoistic. She often looks down on others and believes she is the best at everything. While I agree that she is very competent and capable, the way she expresses this makes me feel uncomfortable. She expresses it quite directly with me, however, I think other people can tell she feels that way based on the way she acts as well. As a result, people I used to be super close with have grown distant from me because it's clear she looks down on them. I feel like I can't call her out because she'd refuse to accept it and I'd have to persuade her why she's wrong (You're being mean, or you've hurt their feelings is often met with "So what? I don't care") Additionally, I'm quite optimistic, and I like that part of me, even if it makes me naive.
However, I feel like because I'm only around her all the time I'm becoming more similar to herself, and I hate myself for it.
While I'm not soft-spoken, and will stand up for what I believe in, I try to avoid unnecessary conflict, and prefer to take a people-friendly approach. My friend is much more aggressive and often "rocks the boat" in group projects and friendships. This leaves me in a situation where I feel like I have to pick up the pieces to make amends because my own friendships are at risk. it also makes me very, very anxious, and I hate it so much. We talked about it once and she said she knows this too, which makes it worse. My other best friend (18M) previously mentioned that it's technically not my responsibility, but I feel like people view her actions and feelings about things as similar to my own, which screws over my relationships. Furthermore, she burned the bridge between her and the previously mentioned other best friend (18M), and tried to blame it on her not liking how he treated her. Eventually, this led to enough conflict last year that he also doesn't talk to me.
She's also known for crossing over boundaries, which caused one of my core friend groups to stop talking to her last year (and as a result, I've also grown severely distant). However, this is also applicable to me. We have to do what she wants if she's decided she wants to do something, regardless of what I want. I also find it quite suffocating to express what I want because she's so pushy about what she wants.
This is further exacerbated by her parents. Her father in particular is very similarly pushy and has no regard for my boundaries. Last year when we went on a trip with both families to the Aquarium, they both made decisions about what we would be doing without me. My mom's quite sick and one of the activities (a visit to the beach) would cause her symptoms to appear. I tend to do most of the planning in our house and often have to be careful to take into account my family members' conditions in this sense. However, this decision impromptu visit to the beach got me in quite a bit of trouble with my parents, as they felt I wasn't being considerate of them. This made me feel really frustrated and trapped between everything. Additionally, my friend knows of my mom's condition. While I don't expect her to take that into account when making the decision, she should have informed me or had her dad inform my parents, and allowed for a conjoint decision.
Similar things happen for other decisions such as when we go out for other activities as well.
Additionally, we're both pre-med students, which creates a lot of competition. I do my best to find many extracurricular opportunities and scholarship opportunities (especially since I'm a first-generation student and my parents are unable to support me in ways that are not financial support due to various reasons). About a year after we first became friends - we've been friends for 3 years, since grade 10 - she and another girl who we were close with at the time, reached out to form a club behind my back. I know this probably sounds very foolish, but up till this point, I had shared the majority of extracurricular activities I had researched online. Additionally, I had founded a club a few months prior, and had made sure to include both girls in a fair manner (We were all co-presidents). They had no intention to tell me, and I found out through another friend by coincidence. It really bothered me and made me feel like I was being taken advantage of. Eventually, we talked about it and came to an understanding.
This is further exacerbated by her dad once again. This year, I had compiled a database of scholarships. During a conversation, her dad had mentioned that we needed to be on top of things this year, such as scholarships. It had rubbed me the wrong way, so I had stood up for myself and mentioned I had a database of scholarships as a way to prove I was on top of things (I get told by my parents that I should work harder a lot, and it makes me upset because I'm really working my ass off). However, this prompted him to push my friend to get scholarship information from me in a very pushy manner. Initially, I ignored her hoping it would go away. About a month in from this, he called me while I was at home, and spoke to me in...I don't even know how to describe it, but it was a pretty manipulative tone to get me to hand it over. I ended up handing over a couple of simpler ones I had (because I had spent hours researching those scholarships, and the information is also available to her on the internet). Plus we had agreed that we wouldn't do exchanges in this sense because of the prior issue. (In this sense as in...something we can't repay the other for in the moment. Homework is alright because it's something that comes up frequently and often we help each other in a balanced manner).
I thought about talking to her, but she knows what her dad did was wrong, and a lot of my other issues revolve around who she is as a person so I can't change that.
Why am I still friends with her?
Well, while I am very isolated with no friends to hang out with this connection feels more real? A lot of my old connections, I would wander around those groups, and no one would notice if I left. Sometimes, it made me feel really lonely like no one cared for me. They all felt like surface-level friendships. This often made it super easy to walk away when things got toxic (which I can't do right now), however, I often felt depressed and unfilled then.
Additionally, we are quite similar in terms of SES and goals. It's quite easy to discuss familial issues with her when I need support, and from a financial standpoint, I don't feel pressured to spend with her either. Sometimes this can be stressful since she's more stingy than me, so I feel guilty for spending too (and therefore, going out with other friends and spending). But, there is the con that I don't have to spend money, and she's always down to split a coffee or find coupons with me.
Our sisters have also really hit off, and it's a nice dynamic from time to time.
Being in a similar field means she understands not having the time to hang out (especially while we did IB). This expectation from my middle-school friends stressed me out a lot.
What I think is the best solution:
I'd love to remain friends and just have a crap ton of distance between us. The type of friendship where you see each other only on holidays (like once every 4 months?). That way we can quickly catch-up, and can be there for each other if needed, but I can go ahead and live my own life. Plus, I can find myself again and be the person I like.
However, with us going to the same universities (in a city 2.5 hours from where we live now), I don't know how to get around all this. I also don't know how to tell her most of this without hurting her feelings. And even if I did, as I mentioned prior, the core of the issue is who she is as a person and how she carries herself. Just because I like being optimistic and nice doesn't mean I can force her to be that way. She's allowed to have her defence mechanisms, and we've discussed before how she believes her way of living is better than mine for her. (Her's being the pessimistic, and as she calls it "realistic" way, whereas mine is a lot more optimistic, sometimes naive, but imo it's simpler?). And no one has any right to say what is the right way to live for everyone? So that feels wrong...
What else should I do? Anyone have any ideas for how I could reach the ideal version of friendship I'm looking for? Please let me know if you need any more details.
TL;DR: Best friend is controlling, pessimistic, egoistic, looks down on others, aggressive/pushy, and rocks the boat of my other relationships making me feel anxious and isolating me. However, we connect very well on an emotional level. What should I do?

2023.05.31 03:07 ghoulfucker Kyleena Side Effects Have Worsened After Replacement (Long Post, Sorry)

Hello! I apologize for this long post, I guess I just need to rant and also wanted to know if anyone has experienced the same thing I'm going through right now. I've looked at a few old threads on here but didn't find very many posts about this, and I wanted to share my own experience.
So, I first got my Kyleena IUD inserted in January 2018. My doctor recommended it because of the low dose of hormones--I had tried the pill a few years prior and I had to quit very shortly into it because it made me feel terrible. I also have a very small tilted uterus and I don't think it would be able to hold anything larger than this IUD. Both insertions were very difficult because of this. Before I went on birth control, I had very painful periods and horrible PMS that worsened my depression and anxiety tenfold.

I don't remember noticing many side effects immediately after my first insertion besides bleeding/spotting on and off for about a month. I think a year in, I realized my mostly clear, dry skin had, over time, become very greasy, oily, and acne-ridden but I chalked it up to getting older and experiencing changes in my body. After a while I connected the dots and realized, oh, it's probably my IUD, that's the only thing I've changed about my lifestyle, and it's a common side effect that I had no idea about! However, I never spoke to a doctor about this because I didn't know for sure it was related, and I also didn't want to make a big deal out of it. If it came down to choosing between getting pregnant or having acne, I guess there's a clear winner.

My theory was solidified as the hormones began to taper off as I neared the end of my fifth year with Kyleena. My periods became more regular again and my skin was less oily than it had been. When I had it removed, the initial replacement failed, so I had a few weeks between the removal and insertion. Within those few weeks, my skin looked better than it ever had and I began to have second thoughts about replacing my IUD, a birth control method I had previously thought was perfect for me. However, by that time I had already cancelled a trip I was looking forward to going on, in order to remain abstinent between appointments, so I was pretty determined to get this thing back in my body.

Skip forward to about two months after my Kyleena replacement. I feel like it's been a nonstop ride of hormones. I've felt on edge, emotional, and very anxious almost the entire time and I'm constantly dealing with so much hormonal acne that it's really messing with my self-esteem. I'm 28 years old and never dealt with much acne as a teenager. To have skin this bad at this age is really messing me up. My skin type has completely changed. I don't remember the hormones being this bad right off the bat during my initial insertion. It was much more gradual.
I liked that my IUD helped with my periods. But now it feels like I've been on my period for an entire two months, minus the terrible cramps and bleeding.

Obviously, I went through a massive change in hormones in a very short time. I went from the lowest Kyleena dose (it had been "expired" by about 3 months when I got it removed), to NO Kyleena, to the highest dose possible in the course of about a month. I'm sure that's probably really messing me up. But knowing that isn't really making anything easier.

I'm going to call my doctor's office tomorrow to speak with a nurse about it (they told me to speak with a nurse over the phone before making an appointment). However, I am very afraid that they are going to be dismissive and tell me to just wait it out for a few more months. I guess I'm here looking for any hope that it might get better. I'm sorry for the long post. Just had to get this all this off my chest. Thank you for listening.

TL;DR: This is my second Kyleena and my hormones have been raging nonstop for 2 months since I got it replaced--something I did not experience the first time around. I previously thought this BC was perfect for me and I loved it, but now I'm regretting getting it replaced even though I went through great lengths to do so, and I am wondering if anyone else has been through a similar experience.

2023.05.31 03:07 righttoremainstupid 27 [M4F] North Carolina - Seeking a kind girl

Hey there, my name is Cody and welcome to my post. I am a 27 year old from North Carolina looking for connection in my state. Here’s some basics about me:
I’m tall and skinny and wear glasses most of the time
I love going on walks while listening to music (I do this almost every day)
My favorite band is Dire Straits
I’d say my best qualities are patience and empathy
I lean very far left politically
College graduate with a degree in Psychology
Before I say anything else about myself, I should let you know what I’m looking for. I’m interested in women around my age who also live in North Carolina and have a similar world view. I am most often attracted to white or Asian women and I really value people who are good at communicating directly and honestly. If that sounds like you, great, feel free to reach out to me 😊
My biggest hobby is gaming, I love all kinds of games, whether they be video games, board games, or card games. I even dabble in making games from time to time. My favorite board game is Twilight Imperium. Last time I played it took about six and a half hours to finish the game.
As far as my personality goes, I like to think I’m a pretty funny person. I can find humor or a joke in almost anything. As I said earlier, I am also very patient and forgiving. In relationships I like to be giving and kind and value that same sentiment in a partner. I can also be a rather private person but I’m willing to open up to people I trust.
Here’s a picture of me:
If you think we might mesh well go ahead and send me a message. I look forward to hearing from the awesome people out there.

2023.05.31 03:07 dricha36 [USA-OH] [H] MSI GTX 1080 Seahawk EK X card with Block [W] PayPal, Local Cash

Built a water-cooled PC back during COVID, and I'm just tired of dealing with the maintenance of it, so I'm selling off my watercooling components.
One of those is this GTX 1080 Seahawk EK X card that came direct from MSI with an FC 1080 GTX TF5 waterblock from EK pre-installed. No aircooler came with this card.
The card runs great. I just took it apart to give it a full cleaning and new thermal paste before selling. I noticed the nickel has started wearing off the copper block in some places, so I added pictures to show the condition of the block for full transparency.
Comes with the original box.
Timestamps -
Would love to sell local (44410) for $175 but would also sell for $200 shipped CONUS.
Comment and PM!

2023.05.31 03:06 Thin_Consideration91 Seeking Advice on Backing Up Emails from External Email Providers - Not Hosting

Hello, fellow Redditors!
I'm in need of some guidance regarding backing up emails from external email providers, and I'm hoping that the knowledgeable community here can provide some valuable insights. While I don't self-host my email, I still want to ensure the safety and availability of my emails by implementing a reliable backup solution (self-hosted).
I would greatly appreciate it if you could share your experiences and recommendations on effective ways to backup emails from external providers. Here are a few specific questions I have:
  1. Are there any third-party tools or services that you would recommend for backing up emails from external providers?
  2. What are the best practices for ensuring the security and privacy of my backed-up emails?
  3. How frequently should I perform backups to keep my data up-to-date without overwhelming the backup process?
  4. Are there any specific considerations or limitations I should be aware of when backing up emails from external providers?
I understand that each email provider may have different options and restrictions, so any platform-agnostic advice or recommendations would be highly appreciated.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for sharing your knowledge.
Note: This post is specifically focused on backing up emails from external providers rather than self-hosted email setups.

Looking for advice on how to help a cello find a new worthy home. It’s an Eastman VC90 3/4 2015. I know values can vary. The shop we purchased from told us it could be worth around $2k but they couldn’t purchase it back as they buy them wholesale, so I’m not sure on their valuation. Keep in mind this was a generic value as they didn’t actually see it.
Where is the best place to find a new home for it? I’ve posted on Marketplace and did get one interested party, but it would have to be shipped and that doesn’t seem viable.

2023.05.31 03:06 DarkHazey1 45 [M4F] #Nashville - seeking discreet and LT FWB

Hi and Happy Tuesday. Hopefully everyone had a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend.
About me: I’m a tall (6’4”) hwp male with a good build, brown eyes, goatee, short blonde-ish hair, and clean cut. I cover a 24 state territory selling scientific instrumentation into the biotech industry and academia, ranging from the Midwest (including Texas and the Great Plains, oddly) through the Southeast. I am DDF/HWP, enjoy close connections and conversation, and trading sarcastic barbs and kidding around. I’m warm, friendly, calm, and a logical thinker. I do not have any children, but LOVE being an Uncle. I’m a bit of a Science nerd, I guess, enjoy reading and landscaping around my house. I’m quiet and personable, respectful, but eager to connect.
If you’re reading this, you might be in the same situation: married but dead bedroom, ignored, cheated on, one foot out the door with your spouse or thinking about it. Welcome! It’s time to be selfish because you’ve given and given and given. Like me, you have plenty to offer but your husband or boyfriend isn’t interested and keeps taking and taking and taking. And you’re lonesome like me.
What I’m seeking: ONE lady (single or married) between 21-44, “ideally” in or about the Nashville area, but distance is fine, too, since I cover a large territory (see above). Regular communication/messaging is important, but if you are a professional like me, some delay is fine and there are times where we can’t write novels back and forth. Be DDF (420, alcohol, cigarettes are ok) and HWP. I’m not looking to change your situation and I want the same discreetness in return. I’m not looking to jump into bed soon; I’m looking to establish trust, communication, and a connection first. Please chat with me using the Chat feature; DM’s are being weird for me. We can move to a different platform if that is preferable to you. Your picture gets mine! I want to feel excitement again and see new notes from someone who is interested.
I want a tight, close FWB. Not seeking a ONS; friendship is key for me. Emphasis on “friends.” Happy to answer questions!
Thank you! Take a chance; only you can make yourself happy.

AD20.5 TI 3V SV250 carrier a bunch, guy I bought it from put a mirror edge on it which I have since dulled quite a bit but it still looks nice, he also said he installed skiffs which I can’t confirm but the action is crazy and the lockup is rock solid
Medford .75AR clone SV40 steel is unknown but this is a beast of a knife regardless, carried a few times, tumbled finish hides any wear
Full Ti Hinderer XM18 skinny sheepsfoot with flipper delete and BGM regrind and stone/acid washed blade SV450 this thing just needs a bit of love that I don’t have time to give it, there is some rusting around the thumbstuds that I never could find the right tool to clean it with, there is also a decent amount of detent lash that I show in the video. Wicked action though. Doesn’t come with og box or triway system.
Medford slim midi magnacut tanto SV500 some snail trails on the scales but other than that no real signs of wear
Vero axon FL full DLC SV250 no signs of wear and a wicked action. No og box.
SMKE scout Damascus SV110 great clone with great action and no significant signs of wear
PayPal F&F only so my money doesn’t get put on hold for a month -_-

2023.05.31 03:06 dudeoftheworld_1 Who's Your Idea Thrash Drummer?

For me it's Mean Gene Hoglan. The dude is a beast behind the drums, and he played in many great bands throughout his career.
Dark Angel, Death, Testament, Strapping Young Lad, etc.

2023.05.31 03:05 Just_Terrible78 24 Looking for people to chat with

Socially awkward person looking to be less awkward.
My goal here is to get some people I can talk with from time to time. I need help with reducing my social anxiety and bettering my social skills. Things I've been having trouble with would be: using appropriate body language, having things to say, having an interest in others (that one is new), and being consistent with talking.
I understand it’s not best to open up with why I wouldn’t make for a great person to talk to. I just want to be very clear so I get people that are 100% up for it.
I do have few friends that I feel comfortable talking with. My traits they like would likely be my open mindedness, agreeability, helpfulness, and sharing of interesting ideas.
Here's a list of my beliefs and interests:
Writing - Been working on a story that reflects my feelings about the world, set in some scifi world.
Digital art - Now mostly for world building in my story. I’ll use Blender and Krita mostly.
Wood work - Currently remaking a table for my shed-workshop.
Exercising - I was doing Free weights and cardio every other day, but because of my mood I find it easier to do just cardio (VR)
Video games - I play on PC. Stuff like Risk of Rain 2, Resident Evil games, Dark Souls games, Fighting games, and fps multiplayer games.
Veganism (I don't expect you to be vegan, but it would be nice)
Queer rights (that includes trans rights)
Most lefty stuff I guess
I live in Texas. I hope this is enough info. If you’re interested in talking to me, please say something in the comments first.

2023.05.31 03:05 4321roamer Messaging someone from the past.

About 2 months ago a girl from back in high school appeared on a Facebook friend list of one of my good buddies from high school. I had a crush on her then, but never told anyone, or her for that matter.
I was agonizing over whether to reach out and say Hello. My intent was to kind feel it out, find out about her. In the background trying to see if she was single or not.
Fast forward to last night. I log into a dating site that I have a profile on. I've been in and out lately, sometimes going months without looking. I search ladies my age (we're both 41), and she's now there! Two huge questions have been answered. Is she single? Yes. Does she live in the same city (not our home town)? Also, yes.
Seeing someone that I've kept a small flame lit for is accessible and available, I'm now excited and terrified at the same time. I've lost all capability for rational thought in regards to this. I haven't been waiting for her all these years, but I said that if i ever got a chance, I would take it. I honestly can't think how to proceed now.
If anyone wants a bit more info, I posted elsewhere a couple months ago. It's my only other post, easy to find, there's a bit more detail. Any ideas or thoughts would be considered and greatly appreciated. Thanks

2023.05.31 03:05 analysis1975 [Budgeting Help] Living on my own for the first time - how to budget for food?

I am a college student and this fall I will be moving into an apartment with one roommate, and we plan to share dinners and split general groceries. We are going to be in southern california if that helps with budgeting. We both eat fairly healthy and need protein because we’re athletic. we don’t have a preference towards organic/etc. items. what would you recommend as a monthly budget? what should we expect to spend? Thank you for your help! i’m a little lost as this is the first time i’m cooking for myself every day. also, if anyone has simple meals or recipe ideas that would be greatly appreciated!
