When asked who his favourite One Piece Villain was, he mentioned Buggy the Clown.


His favourite Devil Fruits are the Bara Bara No Mi and the Hana Hana No Mi.

Oda-San married Chiaki Inaba in 2004. Chiaki Inaba was a model and One Piece fan who cosplayed Nami during Jump Festastage performances in 2002. It is during this time that they met and started dating. They had a daughter born to them in 2006.

That’s my tribute to Oda-Sensei… May he be blessed with good health and a long life.
