A rather curious detail, but not surprising considering the scale of his work.
One Piece is one of the most popular works of fiction in recent years, and it is that, despite belonging to a medium that a little over two decades ago was considered minor, with the arrival of the new century it managed to break through the lists of most watched series. Yes, it is clear that we cannot say that this franchise was the one that managed to popularize the medium, but if It was one of those who continued the legacy.
Furthermore, this franchise is extremely well-known for a specific reason, and that is that we are talking about a series that already has more than a thousand episodes. Yes, of course, this is not the only one that has managed to have so many chapters, but it is one of the few that has managed to reach this figure, staying as one of the most watched series.
This is a direct consequence of the fact that we have a very long story, as well as very well spun, and with many characters. The latter makes many people, with poor memory, be unable to remember everyone we knowalthough it seems that this also happens to Eichiro Oda, the One Piece mangaka.
Fan websites are everyone’s salvation
Specifically, this information has been provided by the Twitter user known as “Sandman”which is usually a very important source of information about this series, which is considered one of the best animes in history.
In the specific tweet, he basically states that Eichiro Oda usually checks the fan websites many times, and that is that on some occasion he forgets some detail about one of his characters. This makes him decide to go to these sites, which are usually full of informationto refresh their memory, or rather make sure they don’t make any mistakes later.
As the serialization goes on, Oda sometimes forgets Luffy’s techniques and researches them on the internet. 😂 He said in 2006 that websites made by OP fans are really helpful.

It may seem, for some people, even ridiculous that an author should go to the fans to remember something about his work, but it is necessary to take into account the breadth of the One Piece storywhich is impressive for anyone, even for its own author.
