Eiichirō Oda Apologizes After Two Big Mistakes Fans Found In The Manga

One Piece is one of, if not THE most popular manga of our time. But with no less than 103 volumes published, Eiichiro Oda gets lost in his own story and some errors slip into the manga.

WARNING. If you are not up to date with the adventures of the Straw Hat Pirate, we recommend that you do not continue reading, since this article details important passages from One Piece Chapter 1062.

Eiichiro Oda’s Two Dumplings in One Piece Chapter 1062

With the multitude of cross stories and characters, Eiichiro Oda has embarked on a titanic work since the beginnings of One Piece in 1997. It’s no secret that the mangaka lives at a frenetic pace sleeping only 3 hours a night to keep delivering on time the sequel to the adventures of Luffy to thousands of fans around the world.

With more than 700 characters and 1,000 chapters, Eiichiro Oda sometimes struggles to navigate. So much so that errors and inconsistencies creep into his work. This is the case in the very last chapter 1062 which contains two blunders concerning Vegapunk n°5 (Atlas) and another concerning a Kuma in Seraph mode. The mangaka also apologized through a press release to the fans. But can we really blame Luffy’s dad?

Errors on Vegapunk and Kuma Seraphin

Posted on October 10th, Chapter 1062 reveals that Vegapunk was not the young woman who appeared in the previous chapter, but in reality a multitude of other characters. The scientist managed to divide his astral body into 6 satellites and each of them harbors a different personality. Vegapunk #1 aka Shaka representing logic, Lilith (#2) representing evil, Edison (#3) representing flair, Pythagoras (#4) representing wisdom, Atlas (#5) which represents anger and Yoke (#6) which represents desire. On page 15 at the time of the official presentation of Atlas, Oda got the wrong number by associating it with 6 when it was supposed to be 5.

An embarrassing little mistake, especially since she’s not the only one in this chapter. Indeed, fans spotted another mistake on page 17, when introducing Kuma in Seraph mode. As a cyborg, the latter is supposed to have the White hairs… which is not the case of Kuma who appears with black hair. Through a statement issued via the official Twitter account of One PieceEiichiro Oda indicated that these errors will be corrected for Volume 107 due out on December 7th.
