The Biggest Mystery Of Eiichiro Oda’s Masterpiece Of An Anime Franchise, A play, is the secret treasure that so many swordsmen have been looking for in “One Piece” for quite some time. In the final arc of the series, the Wano Arc, a flashback saw the legendary pirate and former Pirate King, Gol D. Roger discover One Piece for the first time and laugh at his discovery. Now, it looks like to help celebrate a publisher’s birthday, Oda himself has shared the secret to what Grand Line’s greatest treasure is.
Since setting sail to become the Pirate King, Monkey D. Luffy has worked on the assumption that successfully uncovering the One Piece treasure will solidify his crown in the world of Grand Line. So far, there haven’t been many clues as to what the treasure might be, but given that Roger threw his head back and laughed once he saw it, we imagine this won’t be something as predictable as gold and jewelry. That much. It’s clear that Eiichiro Oda has known the secret for quite some time, and it will be interesting if the conclusion of the Wano arc reveals what the Legendary Treasure actually is.
In a recent interview with Iwasaki Yuji, editor of One Piece manga, it’s been revealed that Eiichiro Oda once told him what the One Piece treasure was as part of his birthday celebration, with said editor revealing it was an “amazing moment” for him while avoiding the question of who would be the next member of the Straw Hat Pirates:
According to Editor Iwasaki’s interview yesterday, Oda told him about what One Piece is on May 28, 2020. It was Iwasaki’s birthday. 😊 He remembers it was a really amazing moment. The interviewer asked him whether or not Yamato would join Straw Hats, but he didn’t answer.😂 pic.twitter.com/x1FWiar79S

Luffy and his crew didn’t have many opportunities to continue their search for One Piece during their final arc, with the War for Wano pitting them against the massive force of Kaido and his Beast Pirates. While Monkey battles another would be the Pirate King in Captain of the Beasts, this certainly looks like a war that could result in major casualties on both sides of the aisle. As Oda said the finale of A play is on the horizon, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised if the secret behind the legendary treasure is solved before the series finale.
