Artist Tite Kubo once said “I hate Oda” in an interview in 2017 and recently, the author Oda also answered about this issue.
Accordingly, in 2017, during a radio talk, Bleach author Tite Kubo caused a stir when he openly said “I hate Oda”.
When it comes to his relationship with Oda, Kubo sums it up as “I hate Oda”, the reason is because Kubo’s first series has been pinned down by One Piece since its release. For those who don’t know, Kubo’s first work is Zombiepowder and Bleach is the second and both series are published in Weekly Shonen Jump as One Piece.
Accordingly, since the debut of Oda and Kubo’s work, Zombiepowder has always lost on the Weekly Shonen Jump chart. Around that time, One Piece and Zombiepowder were two series that were considered quite promising and also found a top position in the rankings, each of which was the work of Tite Kubo who was always behind One Piece.
And recently, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Bleach brand, author Eiichiro Oda sent a commemorative picture as well as feedback on Kubo’s comments about himself.
“A few years ago, Kubo-san said on the radio, ‘I hate Oda’. Someone asked me if I still remember that. Yes! But the content of what he said didn’t mean that bad.
On top of that, Kubo-san dares to speak openly like that so I can’t hate him (laughs).
I still clearly remember when Kubo-san first debuted since we were almost the same age.
“Oh, he draws so well! The visuals are also good and there are interesting ideas as well. Just looking at the pictures, you can feel his overflowing confidence.”
I got the same comment so I clearly stated, “He works really hard so he’s definitely the type of person who hates to lose.”
You must be embarrassed, right, Kubo Taito? (laughs) You are such a hard worker.
Happy 20th birthday of BLEACH. Let’s go make some drinks together!
In fact, the saying “I hate Oda” by author Kubo has more humorous and ironic meanings, anyway, my series is being “ridden by One Piece” all day, it is more or less “spicy”. yes. As for the real life, the author Oda and Kubo themselves both have certain interactions with each other, so although the above sentence has been really shocking for a long time, the heavy impact is not there. Because the two are inherently colleagues (also rivals), it is quite normal to say sarcastic statements about each other.
