Oda is really good, but I gotta give it to Togashi.

They're both really amazing at what they do. I find that Oda is a lot more creative with his world building and characters, which makes the entire manga seem more alive and authentic. While Togashi on the other hand is really good at making you emotionally invested in the characters and story. Togashi can express raw human emotions through his story, it's really beautiful.

it's really hard to say, but when we take artwork into consideration as well, Oda wins. I'm a big fan of both but I gotta give it to Oda. Again both are legends.

Togashi by far. If is art work was any where near op and he did not take breaks this would not even be a discussion. Also his Works have had a lot of influence and IMO chapter black is in the top 3/5 of best manga arcs ever. Is hard is bad at times and sub par and he still has two of the greatest manga of all time. Also he is probably the only person that could take that many breaks from jump as long as he does still have a series. Also I feel a lot of people will pick oda because of number of chapters art and what have you done lately.

When I read my first 'One Piece' manga (borrowed from a friend) my first reaction was: "Wtf... MC's art looks horrible!". Even when I gave it a try on the anime that opinion didn't change and dropped the series at its third episode.

Sadly, my own aesthetic tastes sometimes lead me to drop a series way before the plot perks my attention... I say sadly because I haven't really gave 'One Piece' the try it really deserves. Especially since it seems to be so popular in Japan and western countries.

With that being said, Togashi, even tho he's a slacker (for w/e excuse he might be using, lol), his 'Hunter x Hunter' art is great and has an amazing plot. So, yeah, I’m totally towards Togashi.

This is a little difficult for me just because Togashi isn't in the same boat as most manga creators. He takes breaks, and from that he has extra time to really sculpt his story and think of plot threads a good deal ahead of time (One of the reasons I think the Chimera Ant arc took so many breaks, there was a lot of details to focus on) compared to most manga creators who have weekly schedules and has to balance art/Story/planning with numerous other tasks.

I'm going to have to pick Togashi. His work on Hunter x Hunter has been excellent, and worthy of all the attention it has been getting over the last few years (even if the fanbase is turning into whiny children). His attention to character and arcs (whether they be character arcs or story arcs) are just impressive as each arc tackles an idea that gets bigger, and more complex. Just think how the series started and now how much the tension is resting on politics. People may complain about his art, but I love it for the simple reason that it evokes so much emotion out of me. Heck, he made a full chapter that was absolutely black with only speech bubbles and I was bawling like a baby.

Oda definitely is one of the best today, but recently (or more accurately since the time skip) I've been wondering exactly what he's been doing. Like Togashi I felt that Oda had a very good understanding of character arcs (especially in the beginning) and structuring his story so that each story arc built upon the last while we progress with character arcs. That's good storytelling, and up until the time skip I found One Piece to be great. After the TS however I'm not so sure what he's up to. I understood that the Fishman island arc was an homage to the beginning of OP and it allowed him to tackle racism again, and since he's had acclaim he could go deeper with it, but post-TS OP has felt very plot point heavy for me. Almost as if he was trying to rush and get the story out in the simplest way possible. Or, because OP is going to end up becoming so long it's his way of making the work easier for him, I don't know, but until recently it felt like the characters hadn't overcome much, and the story arcs themselves had interesting ideas but I didn't like how they were executed compared to his previous arcs.

So, I have to go with Togashi for his slightly superior quality and consistency even though one can argue that he has an unfair advantage.

I think it's unfair to judge oda on part 2 of Op because to me he is still setting it up and doing a great job of doing unlike another manga... anyways it will be fair to judge it in about 3 to 5 years because to me part to have been set up for the last third of the manga. I think oda wants to write a story with no un answered questions and no or vary little plot holes. You also forget to oda is saving a lot of his good charters for latter like BB, Red head, Kido, the fire admiral, hawk ( which i think the rematch with Zoro might be the best fight in the whole manga.) Sn: edit this later I am tried and am typing on my phone.
