Nico Robin

Sometimes, it is good for you to spend time alone for it gives you the chance in discovering your true self. Also, it is better to be by yourself than to be with others who don’t even value you. Instead of showing everyone how you feel, you just shut them out just like how Nico Robin does most of the time.

A reserved, and quieter crew is what distinguishes Robin from the other One Piece characters. Although you might think of her as a “him”, her name just suits her personality. She seeks refuge and freedom in studying the world’s mysteries just as what most of the male crews do.

She has this adult charm about her for she has always shown her maternal care for others. But despite this quite demure personality of her, she has a somewhat hideous side of her that often points out morbid facts, which might just disgust you.

Although she is a relaxed type of person, she has a lot to show off as she possesses an outstanding amount of knowledge, especially in history. Moreover, in spite of her looks being so matured, she seems to have a child-like imagination, might as well just like you do too.

Among Robin’s most distinct characteristics is she doesn’t fear any situation for she is usually radiates positivity and cheerfulness. She has only shown fear in very few cases as she would never want to let others see who she really is.  

You might be alone at the moment with no one to trust. You might be pretending to be someone you are not just to avoid people. But someday, you will finally find someone whom you will share your thoughts and dreams with. For now, being alone might sound great. But always remember that no one is born in this world to be alone. You will find someone, too.

Franky

You know that there is this one person in your circle of friends who is not that normal. You have that weird friend of yours who is far from a bad thing. Sometimes, he might be a bit pervert but not to the point that he would be sexually harassing others. Although sometimes embarrassing to be with, you still love him and would not trade him for anything for he is the clown of the group. Being that friend is what Franky gets to be entitled of.

Franky shows up in the anime One Piece as a perverted weirdo. His suggestive dancing and language make him one of the weird ones of the crew. He is even addicted to cola, which would make you think of him as a walking refrigerator for always holding a drink. To him, it drives him to his machine gun hands, making him one of the unique characters in the series.

His real name is also as weird as his personality. You might not even remember his real name, which is Cutty Flam. That is why it was changed to Franky by his old companion, Iceburg, for it sounded weird.

You might think of him as an idiot at times, but he is exceptionally skilled at what he does building and fixing ships. He is also a helpful inventor. He is one of the strongest members of the crew not in skill but in actual strength being able to stop an elephant with only using his strength.

Although Franky is a weirdo, you might also be like him who can be an easy-going person but knows how to be serious when needed. Tom once said, “When a man makes a ship, he makes it part of himself with a don.” Just like Franky, of all the various ships he had built, he gave a part of himself wholeheartedly. And most importantly, he values his inventions as if they have their own lives.

Usopp

Faking something is the most painful lie but it might be your most effective way to hide the pain you are dealing with. Sometimes, lies are your best medium to at least run away from your sorrow. Usopp is a living proof that you can wear any mask to cover your feelings and thoughts.

In One Piece, Usopp has been already cowardly, known to always lie. He enjoys sharing tall tales among strangers and friends. He is considered as Straw Hats’ comic relief and the crew’s weakest member. In spite of his constant lies, he still shows his unselfishness and compassion. And just like any other crew, he pushes himself to become a great pirate and to make himself a better man.

Usopp is also a hard working person who always keeps the crew safe. Most importantly, he is generous in helping any fellow crew member to accomplishing their own visions, not just striving for his own.

Nevertheless, despite his jolly personality, he is a sentimental and short-tempered pirate who cries when distressed. He used to be anxious, easily frightened, a compulsive liar, and insecure. But as time passed by, he was able to put aside his cowardice and insecurities.

Most of his lying was just his way to make him feel better. Some of his lies actually even helped and inspired other people. This is because sometimes, you have to fool someone for them not to get hurt. There are even times when you need to lie to yourself, just to ease the pain. But one thing is for sure. You might fool others, but you cannot run away from yourself. You will not find happiness anywhere, unless you become true to yourself. Do not get too harsh on yourself because showing what you really feel, is what truly eases the pain.

Nami

The journeys to one’s success are never easy. You have to deal with a lot of failures at first before being able to achieve your dreams. It is through hard work, passion, and drive that would bring you to your goals in life. Just as how “Cat Burglar” Nami does as the navigator of the Straw Hat Pirates, you must always be that well-driven person who never stops until you get to where you want to be.

Another character of One Piece, whom you might get related with is Nami. Even as a child, she showed a keen interest in drawing maps as well as navigation, and drawing a complete world map is her ultimate dream. Nonetheless, she doesn’t have enough money in buying navigation books. Thus, it had often led Nami to steal from her village’s bookshop.

If it were not because of what she did in the past, she would not be able to get where she has always wanted to be now. Her past was the reason why she sees money as freedom. You might be thinking that it is easy to say that money cannot buy happiness, but for her, it does.

Even though she is addicted to money, she also values friendship. She is a very appreciative person in a way that what you give her is always kept to be always reminded of you. Aside from being physically attractive, she also possesses a sweet and loving personality.

But what would surprise you is the fact that although Luffy is more powerful than her, she is the only one who can beat him up because she can beat his spirit up. Since she is a persistent and determined person, she always gets what she wants.

According to her, “Life is like a pencil that will surely run out, but will leave the beautiful writing of life.” She is known as the best navigator as she sees life like it. The way you see the world is how you live it. So always see yourself like her, who conquers everything to get to the finish line. Always keep going until you get there, Nami.

Roronoa Zoro

In life, you will meet someone whom you can either share your laughter with or shed your tears with. You will find someone who will have your back when things got rough. You will have someone who neither leads nor follows, but walks with you. And sometimes you will know when you have found them even if you have not yet met them. Just like how Luffy found his Zoro, eventually, you will find yours, too.

From the start of One Piece series, Luffy was able to recruit 11 members to join the Straw Hat pirates. His dedication is strong to ensure his crew is cared for and well protected. Until one day, he learned from his long-time friend, Coby, of Zoro’s formidable repute. Instead of getting scared, the excitement filled Luffy in the possibility of locating him and be able to recruit him. Thus, Zoro is the only crew that Luffy wanted to invite before even meeting him.

Roronoa Zoro can be considered as one of One Piece’s strongest and prominent characters. Just like Luffy, he is a well-driven person whose goal is becoming the strongest swordsman in the world. That is why he is the perfect choice to serve as Luffy’s right-hand man on his journey to become the Pirate King as they get along as best buddies.

Zoro, as what you might call a true a friend of Luffy, also has the same traits as him. Aside from being strong, he is also powerful and famous. As Luffy’s right-hand, he is such a trustworthy and loyal person that even when the crew breaks up, he will be the only one who will stay with Luffy. That is how he treasures friendship.

However, his way of thinking is juvenile as he always wants to win an argument about whether he is right or wrong. But when it comes to women, he has his perspective that you should not treat them differently than you treat men, because, for him, gender should not decide how you treat a person.

Moreover, aside from his attractive looks, he is also smart and good in business. He is also helpful and generous as he gives small sessions for the whole crew to teach them basic skills in weaponry and hand-to-hand combat as an alternative in case, they could not use their abilities.

It is so rare to find someone who will stick with your side no matter what happens in today’s generation. So, if you are able to have a person like him, keep and cherish him. If you still have not found him yet, just wait or better yet, be like Zoro in a world full of traitors.

Brook

As the saying goes, “No matter how old you are now, you are never too young or too old for success.” There is no age limit on going after what you want. As long as you pursue with your dreams in life, nothing is wrong with it. Be like Brook who might be the oldest Straw Hat, but still kicking with his inspirational quotes in life.

There is no doubt that Brook of One Piece is already at the old age of 90 yet still has a great Afro. Aside from it, he is also the tallest despite being old. He has been the last member to join the Straw Hat pirates and he takes the position of musician.

Brook’s devil fruit is the yomi yomi no mi or what you might know as the revive revive fruit. This can bring back the user from the dead. However, since Brook’s Soul could not find his body for a year, what his soul returned to was his Afro and decomposed body.

Unluckily, he died but what is good about his attitude that you might want to adapt is his optimism. According to him, “What keeps me alive in this world is neither bodily organs, nor muscles – it is my soul!” To him, it is not the tangible things which matter but those intangible ones which can never get replaced with.

Another quote from him which might move you is when he said, “No matter how deep the night, it always turns to day, eventually.” You might not get what you want now. You might be experiencing a lot of problems in your life. But there is the assurance that one day, you will get to where you want and should be. Whether you are old enough or still too young, you’ll get through it. You just have to trust the process. Keep on dreaming.

Who is Luffy’s Mom?

Luffy’s mother wasn’t mentioned in One Piece ever which makes the matter more than just intriguing. However, there are two main possibilities. She is either covering up, which is more probable or she is dead which some of you may believe. Now is the time to actually give the answer to the oldest question we can think of. It is probably one of the most important questions as well.

Here who Luffy’s Mom is: The answer you have been looking for

If we take a look more closely, we can see that Oda mentioned the fact he will draw the parents in the Volume 44 SBS volume. Here we can also see that he revealed his father in part 440. On the picture, you can clearly see a man with the African hairstyle and the eyeglasses over it. On the other part of the picture, you can see another character which gender we can’t tell.

An interesting fact is that 150 parts after, Oda drew the same characters again, which was difficult. The real question is why? We believe that this is done because one of them is actually Luffy’s Mom. The claim is more than just accurate if we take a look at the fans who share the same opinion. Their number has been growing in recent years and it is increasing even today.

So there is the answer to the question from the beginning. Now you know who Luffy’s Mom is and how we were able to find her. It was difficult but we managed to do this and we are proud to reveal the truth. The secret was in the details and it may be hidden on this was so only the real fans can discover it.  We are true fans and now we know the truth.

Luffy’s 5th Gear

The captain of Strawhat Pirates is well-known Monkey D. Luffy, as you may know, that already. The second fact you may know is that he is Devil Fruit user and his fruit is Gomu Gomu no Mi which turned his body into rubber. The main ability is stretchiness and it is impressive. We must add that Monkey D. Luffy is the most powerful pirate in the New World.

All 5 gears explained

One of the reasons why Luffy is so powerful are the gears. Basically, these are abilities that allow for him to be stronger, faster and more powerful. The first gear is actually called Gear Second. In this form, he can pump the blood faster through the body which allows him to move super-fast.

The third gear allows for him to push air through the bones and make a giant out of himself. Basically, he will increase his body significantly.

The fourth gear is similar. Basically, he will increase his muscles and make his body more than just powerful. We all liked that considering that the first two gears lacked the power (first) or speed (second).

We agree that Luffy needs the 5th gear. He will probably find the ability of awakening. At the moment we know that he can stay a long period of time in the 4th gear. We also know that he used Haki in order to keep the power under control. All combined we can tell that the 5th gear will be the most powerful till now. Maybe he will be able to turn the entire surrounding into rubber, which offers unlimited possibilities.

For some of you, the 5th gear will be more than just appealing, but for all of us, the combination of the gears is something special. Add the fun factor and we can see plenty of interesting situations.

How Old Is Monkey D. Luffy? (Luffy’s Age)

Monkey D Luffy is one of the most important anime characters and the one that is very popular at the moment. As a matter of fact, he has been well-known for decades. One question recently pops up which was a bit difficult to answer. How old Monkey D Luffy is? Luckily, we will give you the best possible answer.

The base answer is in the first series

Some of you will recall that the age was mentioned in the first series. Luffy is 17 years old, or better said he was 17 years old. Then, we were able to see a time-skip of 2 years. We are interested no in the time frame between these two times.

We all know that the journey between East Blue through the Grand line took some time. According to our analysis, we will say that it took between 8 and 9 months. The next clue we were able to see is hiding in the new series. Since the beginning, Stawhats has been traveling through the New World. We say that he has been traveling for 2 months. All of these are clues that will help us determine the actual age of Luffy at a precise moment.

Luffy is 19 years old, but soon he will be 20 years old. We also know that he will be 20 years of age at the time Strawhats finally reaches Wanokuni. In One Piece birthdays are not celebrated, which isn’t an advantage of the series, definitely. Anyway, we were able to calculate the age of Luffy using simple math and our knowledge of the anime.

In the end, we can say that this was an interesting quest. We only hope there will be more of them in the future so we can test our anime knowledge and help the fans.
