Assignment #2

Creative Idols? Yeah I got one.. :)

Have you ever wonder that why cartoon or anime in Japan have been so popular and vastly known by people, even though they are not like the anime much? So from my point of view, anime is an art. But above all, the creator of the piece of arts is beyond creativity, take for example Oda Eiichiro, a Japanese artist, creator of anime One Piece, as well my respectful Idol.

Let me tell you a little about Oda Eiichiro -

Oda Eiichiro(尾田 栄一郎)

Born 1st January, 1975 in Kumamoto City, Kumamoto Prefecture

At the age of 17, Oda submitted his work Wanted! and won several awards, including second place in the coveted Tezuka Award. That got him into a job at the Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine, where he originally worked as assistant to Shinobu Kaitani's series Suizan Police Gang before moving to Masaya Tokuhiro on Jungle King Tar-chan and Mizu no Tomodachi Kappaman, which gave him an unexpected influence on his artistic style. At the age of 19, he worked as an assistant to Nobuhiro Watsuki on Rurouni Kenshin, before winning the Hop Step Award for new artists. Watsuki also credits Oda for the creation of the character Honjō Kamatari who appears in Rurouni Kenshin.

Uniqueness of Oda :

Japanese manga artist, best known for his series One Piece, which is the highest-selling manga series of all time. One Piece's popularity resulted in him being named one of the manga artists that changed the history of manga.

This is one of the characters in Oda's anime manga, Monkey D Luffy, in One Piece. 

In the world of animation and manga, Oda have create his name to be top of manga artist, basically a genius. The manga, One Piece that he create, have changed my perception toward life. I always thought that my life is better being alone, but one piece thought me about nakama, means friend in japan. Oda creativity of art, touch all the senses in human reality life, about being friends, sorrow and happy, we share together, overcome it together. When I first watch One Piece, I can say I had a good time watching it, and it make me think who is the creator of this anime, and at that time,I just knew it and I made my mind that this person shall be my Idols of all time. :)

All I can say is, I recommended you to watch One Piece, I believe you will understand what I try to say in this section.
