    Re: Oda is planning on retiring after One Piece finishes

    I have no idea what the OP says, but for the title.. I understand him. He's been doing this since 97.
    I would be tired after so long (assuming one piece will last ca. 6-8 years from now).
    I mean, a mangaka doesn't really have that much free time, it must be hard for his kids and wife? It's good that he has his break every 6th or 7th week, or else he migth have lost the will to write?

    Re: Oda is planning on retiring after One Piece finishes

    Well considering that it turned out to be more "epic" than he originally planned, I think I could understand why he would want to stop. I wouldn't blame him if he didn't want to do another manga. He will have made his "magnum opus" and he will have deserved a rest.

    Re: Oda is planning on retiring after One Piece finishes

    i think he's fulfilled pretty much every mangaka's dream, and has made enough money

    I just hope he finishes OP. 10 years is a long time

    it's amazing, his first published series and it's already such an epic, and retiring after this one hit

    I understood that he would do a Robot Manga if I'm not mistaken. Maybe He will take a break but retake after some time.

    I thought I read somewhere that he took that idea and made Franky from it?

    Re: Oda is planning on retiring after One Piece finishes

    he's been drawing One Piece for 15 years,since 1997,so it's comprehensible,especially since his work won't finish by 2015,he himself stated,last year,that it would long other 5 years,more or less. Well,I don't care whether oda will retire or not,I just want him to finish his job in an awesome way

    Re: Oda is planning on retiring after One Piece finishes

    I wouldn't blame him if he really does retire after One Piece is over, I'm honestly surprised he's been able to keep his creative mind intact having worked on One Piece for as long as he has. Wouldn't be surprised if he's a Haoshoku haki user.

    He's left his mark in the manga world and I say he deserves a good long rest once he's done with One Piece.

    Re: Oda is planning on retiring after One Piece finishes

    If One Piece really ends in at least 10 years from now, I think Oda statement is acceptable. He has been doing this at least 15 years now, and he already gets enough profit, recognition and widespread criticall acclaim from it. But honestly I hope he only needs a long break (5 years or so) to rest his creative mind and makes comeback
    to Manga industry later on.

    i think one piece is enough though

    it'd be smart for him to back off

    everytime u do something a second time, u try to do it better to surpass your first efforts

    in that sense, his 2nd manga could easily last way more than 30 years (if it's worth doing passionately, it's worth overdoing)

    with that in mind, that would be adding an unnecessarily huge burden in his life, not to mention the low odds of him matching one piece (something he based on his childhood obsession and planned for years before he started) and the odds of him finishing the manga (the older you get, the more likely you're gonna 'go')

    Re: Oda is planning on retiring after One Piece finishes

    I remember reading somewhere that he wanted to do a Cyborg/Robot manga after One Piece, but once now since it's going on longer than initially planned he's incorporating the idea into One Piece (hence the Pacifista's and Franky).

    Re: Oda is planning on retiring after One Piece finishes

    It does make sense,considering that Oda's next manga will never near as popular as One Piece.Furthermore,OP's world is big and crazy enough for Oda to let his creativity run free,so I would not be surprised if he simply ran out of good ideas after it finishes.
    Gotta give it to him,this man knows when to put an end to things...Well,not really.His arcs are often dragged,but at least he does not add anything unnecessary to stretch the manga due to popularity,so I'm also glad about him retiring and continuing with short stories/one-shots.

    Re: Oda is planning on retiring after One Piece finishes

    Well, I think we all can easily think that there won't be such a huge new project. Toriyama had two big hits: Dr. Slump and Dragon Ball. One Piece is more successful than both (manga-only, when we're talking about anime and merchandise Dragon Ball should be still far off). Oda is the currently most successful Mangaka by selling far more than 250 million volumes.

    Even though I hope, he'll create a small side story to wind up some holes (if there are some left in the end) I think he'd deserve to rest. Who knows, maybe after holding himself back, he'll do some ecchi seinen afterwards (if the Tokio ban wasn't tightened)

    yeah,also this arc at its beginning reminded me a cybernetic place as Metal Slug's world. so I think he will do a mix,to include every aspect of fantasy in One Piece.
