    Thanks to Sandman from Arlong Park for translating:

    Here is my summary for an interview with successive 3 ONE PIECE editors, Asada, Habuta and Sugita. It was revealed a few days ago on the official website.[​IMG]

    - Editors meeting in Shueisha turned down ONE PIECE several times before its serialization. Asada recalls he hated his boss because of his inability to grasp the awesomeness of ONE PIECE.
    One day, Asada got so mad that he made a rebuttal statement for editors meeting.

    - An old envelope was shown to Sugita, on which opinions from various editors were written about an early chapter in ONE PIECE.
    Sugita was surprised to read that some editors were against OP since he thought it was already very popular among editors since the beginning.

    - When Asada finished his career as OP editor in 2001, he shed tears and said to the next editor Habuta, "I'll leave the rest to you about ONE PIECE, Habuta-san!"

    - Chapter 1 between manga and anime are pretty different. In anime, chapter 1 started in Albida arc.
    This was because anime staffs claimed that they should focus on Luffy's current funny and interesting personality rather than his backstory.
    Asada had a controversy with anime staffs about it since he thought audience would not get hooked until they know the reason why Luffy became a pirate.
    Asada says he can now somewhat understand their opinion, though.

    - Sugita has been admiring Oda so much that he kept calling him "Oda-sensei" unintentionally for a month despite Oda having told him not to call him Oda-sensei.

    - All 3 editors in the interview agree that Oda's personality is great in that he has been friendly and far from conceit despite him being very popular mangaka.

    I wonder if jump could have ever filled the void with something else.

    Hmmm, that also happened for Pokémon: Nintendo turned down the idea of "Pokémon" because they "don't understand the idea". Until Satoshi Tajiri had the chance to meet Shigeru Miyamoto and told him his idea. Of course did the creator of Mario, Zelda, Star Fox, Donkey Kong understood the concept so that GameFreak got the limited support of Nintendo to bring their game on the "dead" gameboy. At the end we saw how successful it became and that was the same with One Piece...

    At the end we know the average boss of big companies: "Their non-gamer/reader opinion matter, not the opinion of someone who has experience in this topic... The same happened to the digital camera and to the telephone (Digital Camera (Kodak): At the beginning their first prototypes were pretty bad and they though that it will never become a success so they sold it for a few thousand dollars to an another company.|Telephone: The patent-owners of the telegraph also owned the patent of the telephone but though that the telphone could never beat the telegraph so they sold it to another company.)... We can expect the same for future games and books.
