One Piece creator celebrates Bleach’s return with surprising and emotional letter

Eiichiro Oda seems to be a huge fan of Tite Kubo’s work

The return of Bleach has been a long-awaited event in the anime community, after many of the fans of Tite Kubo’s Shonen series believed that his work ended too soon when it was involved in both the anime and the manga. The arco Howl from the Jaws of Hell might be one of the most loved by the fan community, so it has had the attention of other great Mangakas, specifically Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece, who shared his thoughts on the return of the Soul Society along with some trimmings from Mangaka Tite Kubo.

In a question and answer session that Sandman shared on Twitter, mention was made about Bleach and Tite Kubo specifically, so Eiichiro Oda made mention of the rivalry between the two Shonen creators who have made names for themselves within the anime world:

“Years ago, Kubo publicly announced on the radio that he hate Oda (the creator of One Piece).” Do youDo you want to know if I have a grudge against Tite Kubo? Yes, I do! That said, his entire statement didn’t seem to be particularly rude to me.. Actually, I don’t dislike Kubo considering his audacity having made such a public statement. “

Eiichiro Oda then took the opportunity to praise Tite Kubo and his work, acknowledging the hard work Mangaka has put in over the years. in his works, especially in the story of Ichigo Kurosaki and the Soul Society:

“I remember Kubo’s debut manga, since we are around the same age. I felt, Wow, this new Mangaka has good drawing skills. Your idea is good too. His drawings tell us eloquently that he is a pretty confident guy. Now that you mentioned me that way, I announce here with 100% confidence that someone like Kubo is a super tough competitive experiment. I’m sure you’re feeling embarrassed now, Tite kubo. You are a hard working man! Congratulations on the Bleach 20th anniversary! Let’s have a drink together in the near future. “

It seems that the creator of One Piece is also looking forward to the triumphant return of this great work. While one piece might be winding down in the next five years, Bleach’s return to weekly serialization in the Shonen via the new Howl from the Jaws of Hell arc could bring plenty of great celebrations.
