Author's Notes[]

Author's Notes
Oda's Avatar SBS Volume 62 I often hear that the characters of your manga are like your children. As a manga artist, I think, Really? That important? But I'll be honest: When I hear complaints about my characters, I'll get a little ticked off. When they say, "This guy's a wimp," I started to get swayed by that opinion and think, "Fine, I'll make him really tough!!"

When characters aren't popular, I struggle to find ways to make them more likable. It's like they take form somewhere between the thoughts and messages of the fans, and my response to them. So if they're "children," then they're not my children alone.

Thank you for all of your support.

Chapter 503 I drew this when Brook the musician was still fairly new to the crew and I wanted to create something that would make you feel the music. Now, they didn't eat laughing 'shrooms.
Chapter 516 In the first volume, Luffy left for the sea alone. By volume 50 he's got a crew of nine. Suddenly splitting apart the entire crew made me want to draw this piece. All of their meetings are miracles to be treasured.
Chapter 526 I really like the Edo-era artist Kawanabe Kyōsai. I wanted to draw some old Edo art. All that stuff is in the public domain, so I'm free to copy it. I found out that drawing with a brush is hard. What do you of One Piece, Edo style?
Chapter 540 It's dark in the jungle at night. Robin reads an ancient story by the light of a phosphorescent plant. Brook plays quiet accompaniment, and a chorus of birds joins in. Even the animals of the forest have come to soak up history. Robin's mellifluous voice and music make the perfect lullaby for pirates.
Chapter 547 A whole assortment of unique and quirky scoundrels bursts past the enemy formation with one goal in mind. In their hearts, it is the period of Warring States. Real men don't turn back.
Chapter 553 I can't help but draw summer scenes during the summer. Ice cream, swimsuits and water slides. Why does that skeleton have a tongue?
Chapter 566 I went to Shirakawa-go, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and whipped up this illustration afterward. It's one of the few times I've used watercolors. The water was so pristine here.
Chapter 578 Man, I love T-shirts. I'd been thinking how great a really stylish one is, so I drew a bunch of different ones. Then I added Luffy and the gang too, just for good measure.
Chapter 588 Thanks to the recent movie, the entire world is all about Alice in Wonderland now. Even the pirates are visiting Wonderland. This refined, graceful tea party is going to be a raucous celebration before long.
Chapter 595 These nine. I thought I'd never get the chance to draw them like this again. So while I'd typically have them cavorting with some kind of animal, this time I drew just the nine of them together. This is where the story hits a major turning point, and we plunge two years ahead in time. A final illustration of Luffy as a 17-year-old.
