It’s not everyday that you get a peek into where one of Japan’s biggest manga is created, let alone its creator’s truly spectacular restroom. Trust me on this one.

On Japanese sites like Itaishinja and web forums like Oro Jackson, images of Eiichiro Oda’s studio have been circulating. The stills are from a recent issue of Jump Ryu magazine which focuses on One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda.

The magazine comes with a forty-minute DVD that gives folks an inside look at Oda’s studio.

Make that, his shark-infested toilet.

If you live in Japan or plan to import, this issue looks like it’s worth picking up.
