Being a manga author is very demanding, and you must sacrifice a lot of time for it, including your personal life.

Oda sensei’s health comes under scrutiny once again due to his hard work on One Piece

Oda sensei is a very diligent worker who always tries his best to make the series better and ensure that the fans are satisfied with what they get.

However, being the manga author of such a big story is quite troublesome, as it takes a toll on your body.

Oda sensei has also been in the news due to his health issues, but he keeps pushing his limits and continues giving his all to his beloved story.

A recent revelation depicts that Oda sensei’s blood pressure is very high, and even the doctors have advised him to be careful. He only slept for just three hours every night from 2-5 AM, as he himself revealed back in 2012.

Meanwhile, other staff, such as his assistant and others, get around 5 hours of sleep due to the tight deadlines they need to work with.

Several authors are forced to take a hiatus because they prioritize their story above health until it becomes a severe issue.

Health issues of manga authors in the industry

Even though being a mangaka is a dream job for many, only those working as authors know how troublesome and complicated it is.

You are constantly bound by deadlines, fan expectations, reviews, etc.; authors rarely take a break due to their busy schedules.

Many authors are forced to take a break due to their health issues, such as Gege Akutami, the author of Jujutsu Kaisen, Masashi Kishimoto from Naruto, and even Kohei Horikoshi, the author of My Hero Academia.

One prominent example of health issues is Yoshihiro Togashi, the author of Hunter X Hunter, who has been on hiatus for several years due to a continuous decline in health.

Manga authors are forced to work long hours without a schedule and without taking any significant breaks, which causes a lot of issues when they get older.
