One Piece: Oda Finally Tells Fans About His Favorite Character

One Piece: Oda Finally Tells Fans About His Favorite Character

You must be very familiar with the figure of the mangaka Eiichiro Oda. 

He is the creator of the One Piece series and is a person who has been drawing the manga for more than 23 years. 

Oda Sensei's genius in concocting various story formulas, often gets recognition from his fans. 

And thanks to that genius, the series has become the most popular series in the world with various other brilliant achievements that have been achieved so far.

One Piece itself yesterday celebrated their biggest achievement so far, which is being able to release 1000 chapters, and it will continue to grow. 

For more than two decades, Oda Sensei has presented many new stories and new characters. 

Many fans might think that Monkey D. Luffy or the characters from the Straw Hat crew are the favorite characters or favorites of Oda Sensei.

However, it turns out that Oda Sensei's favorite character is not Luffy or other popular characters. 

In fact, Oda Sensei's favorite character is a minor character, which most of you may have forgotten. 

The figure is Gaimon. 

This information emerged from an interview with Oda Sensei in One Piece Color Walk 1 which appeared in 2001.

One of the questions that later arose in the interview was related to the favorite character of Oda Sensei. 

Oda also said that he liked the figure of Gaimon. 

According to him, Gaimon is a figure who has been trapped in a treasure box for 20 years. 

And he couldn't think of any other characters to be his favorite.

"I like Luffy. But the character I like the most is Gaimon."

"It's hard to think of a better character than him. "

"He (Gaimon) is just a man trapped in a treasure box for 20 years. 

I think it's something really extraordinary."

For those of you who forget the figure of Gaimon, he is a former pirate who now lives on the Island of Rare Animals. 

In the manga version, Gaimon first appears between the Orange Town arc and the Syrupp Village arc. 

Meanwhile in the anime version, Gaimon first appears between the Syrup Village arc and the Baratie arc.

Gaimon's Origin

When he was young, Gaimon was a pirate who was quite greedy for treasure. 

But over time, his greed began to slowly disappear although not all, because Gaimon began to feel alone on the Island of Rare. 

Therefore he begins to value peace and friendship, which are of greater value than anything else.

Although Gaimon initially tried to attack the Straw Hat pirates, but Gaimon ended up befriending the Straw Hat pirates after he told him about his past. 

The Straw Hat Pirates then tried to help Gaimon to get the treasure chest he wanted. 

Luffy also once offered Gaimon to join the Straw Hats, but Gaimon refused and preferred to live with the animals on the island he currently resides on.

Gaimon is one proof of the uniqueness of the characters that appear throughout the One Piece series. 

It's interesting that at the end of the story Luffy will meet Gaimon again, where after he destroys the World Government and becomes the pirate king Luffy will help Gaimon. 

For example, by making the island where Gaimon is now easily accessible to people.
