Guests Ride Mini Train at One Piece Creator's Swank BBQ

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

One Piece creator Eiichirō Oda is one of the richest people in the manga business, earning millions in royalties each year from his smash-hit franchise. Maintaining that kind of popularity is no easy gig. Oda reportedly sleeps only three hours a night and expects similar determination from his editors. No one can fault him for cutting loose on occasion, and when Oda parties, he goes big.

Partygoers shared images from a Takoyaki party at Oda's home earlier this week on Twitter, revealing that not only does the man possess a huge barbecue grill, but there's also a miniature train ride inside his house. Singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu shared this image of the cake.

Voice actor Toshio Furukawa (Portgas D. Ace) is shown grilling enough meat to feed the Straw Hat crew.

More pictures from the party where shared on voice actress and voice of Luffy Mayumi Tanaka's blog. Kotono Mitsuishi (Boa Hancock), Yuuichi Nagashima (Brook), Katsuhisa Hōki (Jimbe), Kappei Yamaguchi (Usopp), Akemi Okamura (Nami), and singer Yusuke Kamiji were just a few of the attendees. The blog notes that Kappei is definitely drunk.

Riding the train is singer Maki Otsuki with Japanese professional wrestler Minoru Suzuki.

Voice actor Tohru Furuya (Sabo) posed with his wife, voice actress Satomi Majima.

Kazuya Nakai (Zoro) poses under a giant giraffe with Tomoko Naka (Miss Fathersday/Belladonna).

Oda's house is definitely huge, and by the looks of it, the guy throws the best parties.
