One Piece is not only one of the most popular anime and manga series of all time, but the series has also made a Guinness World Record for selling the most comics sold. It should be a no-brainer that since the manga series is selling so well, the creator of the series, Eiichiro Oda, will be earning a lot of money from One Piece.
Eiichiro Oda’s net worth is more than $200 million, and he is the richest manga author of all time. Many of us have wondered how Eiichiro Oda spends his money, considering that he works all day and night and only sleeps 3 hours a day. Eiichiro Oda’s sleep schedule is that he wakes up at 5 AM, works all day and night, and goes to bed at 2 AM. After submitting the manuscript of the next manga chapter, Oda takes 1 day off and sleeps off the rest of the week.
Since Eiichiro Oda doesn’t have that much free time that he could enjoy a long vacation away from his office, he bought some amazing stuff for his workplace decoration. A TV interview occurred at Oda’s office, revealing that Oda owns a life-size giraffe, a Shark bathroom, a life-size statue of Terminator, and a Dragon Bath.
Eiichiro Oda started writing the One Piece manga series in July 1997 in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. The manga series has been collected into 103 volumes, and Eiichiro Oda wants to end the manga in 3 years.
As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer “Red-Haired” Shanks. But Luffy’s life changed when he accidentally ate the Gum-Gum Devil Fruit and gained the power to stretch like rubber…at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, still vowing to become the king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his adventure…one guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary “One Piece,” said to be the greatest treasure in the world…
