“Assassin”, Eiichirō Oda insulted by One Piece fans because of this character

When it comes to One Pieceit happens that some manga fans take things a little too seriously, even if it means copiously insulting its creator Eiichirō Oda.

Fans too invested in One Piece?

One Piece is arguably one of the most popular manga of all time. His track record is enough to make you dizzy: more than 1000 episodes, 1000 chapters, 100 volumes, 25 years of existence and nearly 500 million copies sold… A totally unprecedented longevity that allows the loyalty of thousands of readers, who, each week, impatiently await the continuation of the adventures of Luffy and his teammates.

Each revelation, each twist thrills the fans… so much so that some allow themselves the unthinkable: insulting Luffy’s Dad when an element does not suit them. “Assassin”, “He made fun of us”the insults are surprisingly violent on social networks with regard toEiichiro Oda. Why so much hatred towards the most famous mangaka, but also the most respected?

Luffy’s dad insulted because of Vegapunk

Attention, this passage evokes important elements of the last chapters of One Piece. If you are not up to date with the manga, we advise you not to continue reading. In the meantime, you can always fall back on the sad disappearance of One Piece.

The recent revelations about Doctor Vegapunk in chapters 1066 and 1067 highly disappoint a handful of fans. This mysterious character teased for months and fruit of many theories sees his identity FINALLY revealed… But his appearance is a real disappointment for readers.

In the guise of Einstein, Vegapunk reveals an atypical physique, a bit of a caricature of the totally mad scientist. A representation deemed too “cliché” and far from the epic, almost “badass” side that the fans had imagined:

“A lot of people were disappointed because Oda lied a bit about the design of Vegapunk. His body is not the same but really not the same at all, and we waited 15 years or more for an ugly character and way too much cliche of the intelligent scientist.”
