"I don't want to conquer anything. I just think the guy with the most freedom in this whole ocean... is the Pirate King!"

One Piece fans will probably get a chill running down through their spine when they remember this dialogue quoted by Mugiwara Luffy towards pirate king first mate, Silvers Rayleigh. Though the talk is of Straw Hat's, the mastermind behind his character is One Piece creator, Eiichiro Oda. Along with the world's best-selling manga series One Piece, Oda-sensei has authored several mangas like Wanted!, Romance Dawn, and Taste of the Devil Fruit.

His manga series One Piece follows the adventure of a fictional young pirate named Monkey D. Luffy who has eaten a devil fruit 'Gomu-Gomu no Mi' and has a goal to succeed Gol D. Roger as a next pirate king.

Two Kids With Former Cosplayer Wife

One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda is a married man. His wife Chiaki Inaba is a former Japanese model who worked as a cosplayer. Oda-sensei met the woman of his life in 2002 when Chiaki played a role of Nami during the annual party convention, Shonen Jump Fiesta. After two years of dating, the couple had their wedding in 2004.

In their family, they welcomed their two bundles of joy. One of their kids, a daughter was born in 2006, and when Oda got blessed with a son, he remained worried. Due to his anxiousness over his son's birth, the manga artist created the backstory of One Piece character Portgas D. Ace as a son of Kaizoku-O', Gol D. Roger.
