It has been more than two decades since the One Piece series began to be released to the audience. During that time, many mysteries have been solved, although there are still many big question marks waiting to be answered. Obviously, creating such a complex world and developing characters with depth is not something that everyone can do.
This has been confirmed and honored when recently, the author of One Piece – Eiichiro Oda was recognized as one of the 10 most influential people in the present time. One of Japan’s most prestigious universities – the University of Tokyo conducted a survey to select the top 10 geniuses of the “Reiwa Era” (from 2019 to present). The results of this survey were published on Fuji TV.
The list includes a variety of athletes, actors, businessmen, and only one cartoonist made the list. That artist is none other than One Piece author Eiichiro Oda. This is really something to be proud of for the One Piece author in particular and the manga/anime industry in general.
Here is a list of the top 10 geniuses of the current era:
1. Shohei Otani, baseball player.
2. Fuji Souta, Shogi player.
3. Ashida Mana, actress.
4. Narita Yusuke, economist.
5. Son Masayoshi, CEO of SoftBank.
