1Currently working with his comic "One Piece". [January 2006]
2Strangely, in a recent Japanese Fan Poll, he was ranked the 48th Most Popular Character in One Piece, despite the fact that he has never included himself in any issue of the manga.
3He is a fan of rapper Eminem, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, and Tim Burton, which is reflected in his work (Enel/Eneru's design is an homage to Eminem, and Spandam's design is a possible homage to WWE wrestler Mankind).
4He originally planned the One Piece series to last for five years, and had already planned out the ending. But the story has continued far beyond his expectations, and its popularity has swelled to enormous proportions.
5He is married to Chiaki Inaba, who had played Nami during Jump Festa One Piece stage performances.
6Formerly an assistant of Shinobu Kaitani & Masaya Tokuhiro.
7His 3 favorite movies are Seven Samurai, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Young Guns.

11According to Oda in an interview for Shonen Jump, his favorite villain in One Piece is Buggy the Clown (he joked that he literally threw him together).

Looks like we don't have awards information. Sorry!

Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!

1The appearance of design doesn't need to have a practical use.
2Five consecutive weeks is too much! Two straight weeks is enough for me.
3That's why I think people who draw stories set in a contemporary world faced more challenges.
4When I was a child, I was drawing for fun and received praise for a picture. I became overblown with confidence and declared that I was going to become a manga artist. At that time, I wanted to become the best in drawing pictures. I believed that the person who draws best is the best manga artist.
5(When asked about his feelings towards Akira Toriyama) He's like a god to me, of course. He is in a different dimension. More than anything else, his drawing skills are too good to be true!

1[emotional outbursts] Always has atleast one character giving out an emotional outburst with eyes bulging out and mouth hanging down longer than normally.
2Always includes atleast one or a group of characters with strange behaviors or habits.

Looks like we don't have pictures. Sorry!
