    Deku would probably look more like Coby than Luffy if Oda drew him.

    I think it's my first time reading Oda like a normal mature human being...

    Quite a surprise. Horikoshi shocked about Oda being on the cinema's queue for his movie was just lol xD.

    There's always some chatter about the inaccuracy of Oda's predictions of the series' length when they come up in interviews. Here's a Reddit post (not mine) on the topic that offers some interesting insights, despite the slightly hyperbolic title. Oda's predictions are actually fairly consistently putting the end of the series between 1100 and 1200 chapters. While that is a two and a bit year window, which feels pretty broad, it's really not that much within the scope of such a huge series, and it feels pretty reasonable for the amount of content we have left. We give Oda shit, but as always he has things better planned out than anyone expects

    I estimate chapter 1050 should be about the end of the Wano arc. Can't see the manga ending before chapter 1400.

    That's a huge exaggeration lmao. My guess is that Wano won't even be Dressrosa long. It's a good arc to start the story accelerating towards the endgame, what with how much of the cast are established characters who've been built up all through the second half of the series as opposed to most of them being introduced in the arc the same way Dressrosa and Totland had it. This'll go faster than we expect.

    How do you know that we won't see tons of new characters and their development in this arc ?

    Do you know what's funny? Wasn't Oda around Luffy's age when he first drew those One Piece one shots?

    Lmao what? Wano has been brewing since the dawn of time. It's literally the culmination of everything we've been building up to in the New World. Whole Cake Island was the 2nd longest "island" arc (since some get triggered when you don't consider Water 7/EL Lobby an arc, and he planned to finish that earlier. Wano will easily be the longest arc in One Piece.

    Think about this way. We're 4 chapters in, and we're still getting shadowy appearance of lowly ranked crew members like Holdem. Imagine getting to Queen, King, the Shogun, Kaido, learning about Wano. We haven't even reunited the Straw Hats yet. It literally hurts to think how long Wano will be. Be strapped for the next 3-4 years minimum.

    Beside the fact that calling someone else's guess an exaggeration because it's not in line with your own is silly, it seemse sensible to think that the arc that every New World Arc has been building up to may be one of the longest thus far, unless most of the storytelling of Wano or about Kaido had already taken place, which I highly doubt.

    The exaggeration was more for the 1400 number than the 1050. 1400 is a lot, especially for a story that's 80% done at 900. I'll go a little further into why I think Wano will be short below.

    Wano is obviously the penultimate battle of the series, leading into the endgame, and the culmination of everything post timeskip so far. And that's why it's gonna be a bit shorter. The focus isn't on introducing a ton of new characters like Dressrosa's gladiators or Big Mom's kids, it's about Kinemon's samurai band, and the minks, and eight out of eleven Supernovas, and the return of the Whitebeard Pirates, and Jimbe finally coming back to fulfill his promise and join, and the grudges forged against Luffy in his previous encounters with the underlings of the Emperors. That's a lot, but it's all been set up in advance. Dressrosa and Totland spent nearly half their runtime each on setup and establishing their large new casts, and my thinking is that Wano is better equipped to streamline the setup phase and get right to the fighting than any arc that's come before it. Just look at how short the actual battle of Marineford was once the fighting started, and if you count up all the named Whitebeard captains and Navy officers and escapees involved there were more than 100 named characters present. And the rapid pace of the Reverie and how quickly we've seen three towns and the capitol of Wano in so few chapters makes it feel like the story's only going to keep accelerating. And at 80% plot/length complete, it's a good time to start speeding up, structurally.

    I know it's easy to go on about how long-winded and slow paced the story is and complain about the amount of time spent on recent arcs, but taking a step back, I think a relatively quick, sub-100 chapter Wano makes a lot of sense, and I'll defend the idea until Oda proves it wrong.

    since some get triggered when you don't consider Water 7/EL Lobby an arc


    That'd be me. It's a complete story. Divisions by geography are arbitrary and only work most of the time. The series' sagas are more important than its arcs.

    And if geography is so important, why do so many people default to Whole Cake Island for an arc that spends nearly 40% of its runtime on Cacao Island, the Mirroworld and miscellaneous Totland Waters? Is it because despite the movements from one island to another, the events make up one larger storyline? Huh, how about that.

    3-4 years, wtf? We get 40 chapters per year, that would be 120-160 chapters then. No way Wano is gonna be 160 chapters at a minimum... Hell, Dressrosa has 102 chapters and I think Wano is gonna be within that range (+- 20%, likely shorter than longer though). Oda spent years (since the timeskip) setting up the story/characters for Wano and Dressrosa was a part of that and he built a ton of characters there. But here in Wano we basically know everyone with the exception of Kaido (and his calamities) and the shogun. The way this was set up makes it so that Oda can jump straight to business in Wano, instead of having to spend a shit ton of chapters to introduce a shit ton of new characters like Dressrosa did

    Today Oda sent a message to farewell party of Momoko Sakura, who passed away at the age of 53 on August 15, 2018.
    She is the author of famous manga/anime "Chibi Maruko-chan". Here is my translation of his message.

    Oda: "The more I talked with her, the more i was attracted by her personality. One day, she showed me a video of her funny dance at her house, which made me laugh.
    I thought, "What the heck is she doing? Is she really that great author!? Her funny personality was exactly the same as Chibi Maruko-chan.

    She didn't allow me to treat her as senpai mangaka, saying it's just that she was born 10 years earlier than me. She is one of the few people who understand me.
    "Chibi Maruko-chan" is the fruit of Sakura-sensei's hard work. Even if mangaka dies, his/her characters keep living instead. All of us will never forget you.

    Momo-chan. Since you didn't want to meet anybody during the fight against the disease, you are still smiling in my memory. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.”

    Oda said similar thing in author's comment in volume 25;

    "The cover page of chapter 233 is black as a mourning of Gin Shinga, my mangaka comrade.
    Someone said that even if mangaka dies his/her characters keep living instead, which made me think mangaka may be a happy job."

    Oda and Momoko Sakura held an interesting interview at Sakura's house in 2014. Oda gave us a hint about the ending of ONE PIECE. You can read the summary by OnePiecePodcast.
    http://www.onepiecepodcast.com/2014/07/27/oda-reveals-what-the-one-piece-isnt/

    Not only Oda but also his wife and daughter(s) visited her house on that day. Sakura recalled their visit, "It felt like my house turned into rose color."
    Momoko Sakura has been a big fan of ONE PIECE. When she heard that Oda's daughter was a fan of Chibi Maruko-chan,
    she came up with an plan that Oda might give her his autograph if she sent her autograph to his daughter. This is how Oda and Sakura's friendship started.

    Famous korean illustrator Kim Jung-Gi signed and sketched one of his sketchbooks for Oda.



    Kim Jung-Gi got famous for his particular style, his crazy perspective and speed and everything without an under-sketch. His fame mostly boosted through youtube in the past years, where famous western Artist took notice of him and kept inviting him to events to the west. He's well beloved by many fans, but even more by many artists. He's friends with Otomo Katsuhiro and Terada Katsuya (released a book with him, same guy who did a cover for the Acel Novel Vol. 1), and many people say Kim Jung-Gi reminds them of Moebius. His sketch for Oda was made at Kaigai Manga Festa in Tokyo - but I have no idea wether Oda went there in person or not. But it's still interesting to see that Oda seems to be a fan. Maybe KJG will do an illustration for one of the future novels.
