I don’t think you get it.
when your series gets a crossover with Dragon Ball….nobody can ever fuck with you again. and anyone who says One Piece sucks is basically wrong because the godfather of anime and manga equals infinity votes to your one. sorry. you CAN say you’re not cool enough for it yet. that works. but that its a bad series? yeah no. its enough that DBZ inspired Oda to BE a mangaka, and the creator of DB, Toriyama, is his idol, but the fact that his hero also loves One Piece and wanted to do a cross over…yeah, Oda, you won the game of life, bro.
that’s like you being inspired to draw from watching Miyazaki movies and then Miyazaki asks you to do a movie with him. or Disney if he was still alive.
yeah. that’s fucking incredible. I still can’t get over how amazing it must be.
