Oda is particularly famous for rarely killing characters. Most die in flashbacks but not in the present timeline. What’s more, he even brings those back to life after giving them fatal injuries.

He explains that he doesn’t like killing off characters because he loves to end all sagas with banquets. However, if people were to die, then holding a banquet shortly afterwords wouldn’t feel right.

He further explains that a big party is his ideal form of friendship, and he wants to end One Piece in the same way. Therefore, it’s certain that the series will draw its conclusion as the Straw Hats and their friends enjoy a big banquet after completing their voyage.

The significance of banquets in the series


After every major battle, the Straw Hats attend a banquet and kindle their friendship with the inhabitants of the islands they visit. It also helps lighten the mood after a lot of struggles. However, these banquets aren’t just for fun.

These banquets serve to complete a significant theme in the narrative, in which the people of a newly liberated island are allowed to live freely and luxuriously for the first time in a long time.
