One Piece Anime’s Wano Arc made Eiichiro Oda cry
The One Piece anime is said to have brought manga author Eiichiro Oda to tears.
Despite the manga author’s seemingly cavalier attitude, this latest report is not the first time Oda’s health has suffered problems due to the nature of his work. Earlier this year, it was revealed that Oda had suffered from chronic sleep deprivation due to the harsh demands often placed on manga authors. The report said he often slept only three hours a day and suffered from both diabetes and gout. He also often skips meals to continue working on One Piece.

Togashi had to pause his work several times during the manga’s publication process due to debilitating chronic back pain and impaired function in his right hand.
