What might be the real life inspiration of Oda behind writing One Piece? Does anyone has an idea about Oda's inspiration of writing One Piece?

1 Answer 1


I would like to share this after some research:

As a child, Oda gained interest in pirates through a famous television series titled "Vicky The Viking". He was inspired by Akira Toriyama, creator of Dr. Slump and Dragon Ball and aspired to become a Manga Artist. He worked as an assistant to different manga artists for a few years before finally starting out with One Piece in 1997.
