Just to start something interesting here. OP might not be a romance manga, but who knows what ODA might stir up later in the series.

Anyway, So many combinations, if your choice not there, pls give some interesting suggestion.

Some crap suggestions I herd fr other forum was Chopper and Sogeking (haha..Gay) , Zoro and his sword....hahahaahah :)

well, honestly i dont think there will ever be any romance in OP. its not that kind of story but if i were to guess: Hina and Smoker, Vivi an Koza. cause i cant see any of the main characters get romanticly involved. Sanji would love to but he's a lot funnier single :D

I agree with BoffenJL here. If there are romance scenes in OP, it would just be like seeing eyes to eyes. No flowers (except Sanji), candlelight dinner or gifts. But for this time, I would say Zoro-Robin, Vivi-Koza and Sanji-NOTHING. Yep,for the sake of the continuation of some of those zany comedies, sanji should not get one. Oda should let him constantly crazy over Nami for nothing.

:nuts Where was this stated? :nuts

I can't really think of OP having much romances in it at all. But I do have crack parings in mind. XD Zoro/Robin, Smoker/Tashigi (snorts), Luffy/Nami, etc.

It's fun just looking for small hints and stuff too. XD

okay! i get it. but i really don't see a basis on why would you pair up zoro and robin.

the possible couples here in one piece IMO is Ussop and Kaya and Vivi and Koza but nontheless it won't be explored in the manga (at least in my perception)

Haha... I'm a fan of Zoro-Robin pairing too :p
Well, both of them are wiser than most of the crew and most of the time they're making sense instead of saying nonsense. They are serious but do smile and laugh from time to time. Eventhough we see Robin is like straight all the time, but I can imagine she can be a very good wife...

Not making sense am I? Haha... I'm just a fan of those two... :p

It's more of a crack pairing based on small scenes. XD

When Zoro saves Nami, its always because she's a friend, and he jsut saves her...normally I guess. But that scene where he stops Robin from falling when Enel eletrocuted her was definitely different. XD

And...also what baxteristic said. :p They're jsut too cute to not pair. XD And those scenes with Robin trying to make smal talk with him, while he gets annoyed of her because she still doesn't trust him. XD It's a popular pairing in Japa too, with all the fanarts I've uncovered. >.>;

:loool i get it! well when you all put it that way, it would seem that they do have a thing. yeah! i remember that moment when zoro was furious and sad at the same time when Enel struck Robin with lightning.

:D i've looked at it as Zoro's machismo kicking in.

Exactly! XD

I like how you explained it. XD Zoro's machismo. KEKEKE 8D That's why I was waiting for the very moment they finally all got together. XD And I just like the dynamics between them. Zoro always not caring, but he probably is.

Like in one of the latest chapter, Zoro tells her to stop talking about thanking them and stuff. XD

Another favourite Zoro/Robin moment was when Robin introduced herself to the others, and Zoro was the only one who didn't trust her. The anime made it even more adorable. XD You should watch it. XD

watched it! :D but still not convinced though. i dunno why? maybe it's just me.

i just remembred Zoro's words when Robin was bolted by Enel.
"She's a woman." kinda reminds me of FPJ because of Zoro's voice.

:Haha

totally agree with you. but i realized people here in this thread are just having fun on pairing up couples and telling how cute they go along with each other.

This is really amusing :rofl Look into the far future, after all the SH adventures ended. Can you see what I mean?

Anyway, if there is romance in OP, it will happened after they finally reached "One Piece". Looking at current developments, it's impossible for them to have romance on the ship. Storywise, we maybe got to see the buildup of that romance, but not the true one before they reached their goals. This is only if Oda wants to addup this kind of thing into OP IMO.

Dragonzair
October 14, 2006, 03:03 AM
Another cute crack pairing would be that bartender lady back in Luffy's hometown, and Shanks. :p

And as for Chopper and Robin...besides stating the obvious (XD), another horrifying thing is that Chopper is the youngest of the crew (about 15, methinks), and Robin's the oldest.

That calls for paedophile. >_>;

*cracks up some more*

Agreed very much. The only canon couple I can see for now is Ussop and Kaya, and probably Kohza and Vivi. And it may be possible that there may have been something that had happenened between Smoker and Hina. Otherwise, I don't see why she was willing to save Smoker's ass from being kicked out of the Marines a long time ago.

If Oda is going to add romance, it's at the end. Maybe a glimpse of the future, or just there and then. Or possible in two/three volumes before that. For now, he'll just put small moments and whatnot, methinks.

Exactly. But no romance. XD

Awww...Tashigi's leading the polls. Although, I do see that as another possiblity, but I'm not that fond of it...for all I want to believe, Zoro found Kuina as an older sister/best friend/opponent to beat/etc. XD It is still funny to see those to in a scene together, but I can't imagine Tashigi with a pirate just yet.

Better look again DZ. That Usopp and Kaya pair has just regain the poll crown again. I guess other than Vivi, Kaya is the only girl that seems to admire her man. So, I can see where this is coming from.

Brave warrior of the sea and a doctor. Hmm... Not a bad pair for romance in Op I presume.

bakashijinsan
October 14, 2006, 10:30 AM

not with all the "justice" and fanaticism about swords that she got as of the moment. she'll forever see Zoro as a criminal unless they have a small talk.

Kaya looks up to ussop in a girl-who's-in-love way and you can guess very well on why ussop is so attached to going merry so much since it was given to them by Kaya. so they're pretty much the ones that we'll see that'll have a romantic ending.

Vivi and Koza of course is a pair that can be tied up but we all know what's going on between those two so no exploration needed.

It doesn't mean that Oda couldn't use Tashigi's character as someone who could annoy Zoro, or at least scare him away. And there was never anything between Zoro and Kuina. XD

Untill I see Tashigi forgetting all about her 'Justice' that she totally believes in, I won't see her as a person falling for a pirate, moreso for Roronoa Zoro. The person who she has the most vengeance against. Although, this vengeance thing can be proof of something that might happen later, but I'd rather stick to the safe side for now. XD

What I can see in the future though, is that she develops mutual respect for him in the end. I can see her jsut like Smoker. Both of them into moral justice, rather than absolute justice. So she'll probably have a sort of friendly relation with Zoro in the end? XD

I always thought that between Tashigi and Zoro there was a misunderstanding. And Tashigi knew that was Strawhat crew which saved Alabasta nation from Crocodile, who was protected by the governement.

October 17, 2006, 10:10 PM
Well look at how both tashigi and smoker reacted to the fiasco in arabasta, It's obvious that thier "Justice" and the World Govt. "justice" don't mingle or coincide.
Sadly thou it's not as obvious as the fact that both tashigi and smoker are a long .... looonnnng ... way away from being on any sort of friendly terms with any pirates let alone .,... romance.
I wonder why smoker hates pirates so much when he obviously admires the Pirate king gol D. roger soo much... but alas that is for a different topic.
I say Smoker @ Hina is about 5000x times higher probability than smoker @ tashigi thou.. they seem to have more of a platonic relationship.. more like Father daughter... or Older Brother + Baby Sister.

She said she hated Roronoa Zoro for being a cold blooded killer, and is on a quest to gather all the swords from criminals. I think before she met Zoro, she didn't know he was a pirate, so I'm jsut wondering why she hate this agenda against him. But now that he is, that is what makes him against her.

And yeah. That's why I said towards the end they'd probably develop mutual respect for each other. Since her and Smoker knows that the SH crew helped overthrow Crocodile, and possible, more in later chapters. I'm still wondering what Smoker wants with them though, since him and Tashigi are still after them, plus he even gave Aokiji a message to give Luffy. But I'm going off topic, so never mind. XD

Mutual respect, yeah. Romance, not yet. 'Yet' is the key word, actually. XD Until Oda actually shows much more scenes with Zoro and Tashigi interacting in any other way than shouting at each other's head. XD


I wonder why smoker hates pirates so much when he obviously admires the Pirate king gol D. roger soo much... but alas that is for a different topic.

I think it's because he's always wondered why the Pirate King smiled when he was killed, much the same way Luffy did when he was about to be executed. From the way he talked about Gl D. Roger, it seemed obvious that he actually saw the execution itself. Which means he had lived in Logue Town since he was probably a young man, possibly child. Seeing Gol D. Roger smile made him much more interested in him. Much the same way he is now with Luffy.


I say Smoker @ Hina is about 5000x times higher probability than smoker @ tashigi thou.. they seem to have more of a platonic relationship.. more like Father daughter... or Older Brother + Baby Sister.

Yeah. I agree with you on that. Even if I like that crack pairing much more than Smoker/Hina, it's just not meant to be. But the father-daughter relationship is hilarious though. XD Smoker/Hina is deifinitely a high probability. They've both got a differnt sense of Justice, yet Hina helped stop Smoker from getting kicked out. o.O

I think Tashigi said she hated Zoro because he use the sword for bouty hunting in the beginning. It seem she dont like the way he misuse the sword (using sword to get money). So later on she will know that he use the swords in good way.

October 18, 2006, 01:16 PM
I think alot of tashigi and smoker's resentment toward the mugiwara's extends from the fact they they were able to step up where both of them failed .. .stop crocodile and save alabasta. So if anything tashigi is suffering from a case of wounded Pride.
And lets face it unless they've done some major training and powering up tey wont be able to even face the strawhats now.

this is off topic but i have to say it. smoker would still stand a big chance against luffy. luffy may have his gears but if you cant hit your target, what good does extreme speed or strength do for you? nope, no good at all.

zoro vs tashigi would probably just be embarrasing for her if she hasnt done some SERIOUS training.

i forgot about foxy and none of the baroque works count as pirates since they were a secret organization operating covertly. So they aren't pirates just because they work for a former pirate.
I was just saying apparently women pirates are as rare in op as they were in real life.

Damn right. Romance and One Piece should not be combined.

if there is any romance in OP it can be at the end.

or example showing luffy after he is a pirate king and he has a son with his strength and let's say nami's brain.

Yeah, it would be hard for One Piece to have romance in it because of its comedy and plot, until the very end at least. I don't expect any until the last couple of chapters. So let's hope that it won't come up in the near future. XD

Yeah but When any manga does that it's always like ... well lets give them something to shut them up... so it feels out of place. I think that if one piece is going strong for over 430+ chapters and in my opinion is better than it has been for a while ... well it might be a long ... long time before it finishes. They have only been to one of the four seas and one of many paths through the grandline. Sooo ... anyway Long story short as much as the temptation is there I'm 100% against Two main characters having a relation ship.
Plus why isn't anyone stating the obvious Robin + Franky... I mean Robin's already gotten to 3rd base with Franky ... (See chapter 437) But not in a good way! XD

good point but why does he get the crap beat out of him by nami even though it's comic relief. so far the only person luffy really listens to is her. even though she is a "golddigger " as you said luffy if going to be pirate king

i'm am thinking more to zoro n nami while sanji with robin, ussop with kaya

i'm no really sure bout luffy, franky, and chopper

here is my explanation for my choice :
1.zoro n nami > zoro is already the cool type while nami is a little bit short-tempered...so they can neutralise each others characteristics :amuse
2.sanji n robin > these two is perfect since robin is much more elegant and graceful than nami which kinda suits sanji since he declares himself as a prince : :p :p :phahahahha :Haha
3.ussop n kaya > just ussop's personal feeling from the start i think :tem

I say Zoro & Tashigi and Ussop & Kaya for sure. Zoro and Tashigi seem to have a connection, she's interested in him because he famous and she wants to hunt him (for love hehe) and Zoro seems interested because she looks like her childhood friend. Kinda obvious that Ussop and Kaya will be together. Luffy seems too much of a "dunderhead" to get a girl. Nami doesn't seem to have any HUMAN love (thats right, money love) right now. Sanji's practically a pimp/player. Robin doesn't seem that interested in a love life. And what about Chopper? Why not pair him with some human who ate the reindeer fruit heh?

OP_overlord
January 02, 2007, 09:41 PM
that would be crazy if some ate teh raindeer DF and they could fly and stuff (they would help santa and what not) but that would be kool for chopper and sanji is a wanna be pimp now of teh girls like him back he is like to cute for him. robin has just had some issues in her life with trust and love i thnk that the more time she spend the more she trust and loves (she isalso the oldest in the crew) she could go out with aokiji but he is older then her to and more like a father fiure to her (with teh protection in the ohara insident) teh two sword fighters would be a good match they could train together and nami is all about the money and orenges and she doesnt care about people, and luffy is to dumb to know about girls he just goes with the flow

But I'm pretty sure that in one piece romance is legend, oda could change that there is so many thing that can happen but i im my humble opinion don't really think so.

Goku married Chi-Chi coz when they were kids she asked him to promise her that they will marry each other, and when they met as grown-ups, Goku (being as innocence as he is) forgot all about it, but he married her so he won't break his promise. :D

I don't think Luffy is capable of doing so.. :p He aint that naive/innocence :p He's a bit more realistic.. Not to mention, I dont see Luffy and Nami getting along as husband&wife.. I said it once, and I'll say it again.. Nami's Scary!!

At the beginning of manga I thought also about LuffyxNami, especially after Arlog Arc, but now I'm not so sure because it hasn't any development at all.

NoOoOo.. :eek ZoroxTashigi is just so wrong!! How can they be leading?!?! *calls out to all other zoroxrobin fan!!* Zoro deserves better than tashigi XD (psst, that's the fangirl in me speaking) Besides her swordsmanship and appearance, she's nothing like Zoro's childhood friends.. whom I can't seem to recall her name.. -.- I prefer a ZoroXRobin pairing though.. Both my favourite characters ^^ They are better suited for each other IMO But, I frankly don't think there will be romance in OP, maybe we get hints and vibes.. (like the one we get between robin & zoro :p) but not actual "romance", it would ruin the whole nakama thing that OP is all about.

:faint robinXchopper.. you have gotta be kidding me.. that scene during the davy fight back in the anime is really a show of motherly love XD or sisterly love.. if ya get wad i mean..

P.S My few postings in OP discussion although I'm a big OP fan (I watch anime then, read manga) coz it's a pro-manga fan here. :guns I'm kinda wary of these threads in case I bump into any Spoiler Monster that lurks around..

Zoro + Tagishi would just be to lame, most people think this is going to happen (if there was romance in one piece) but it would just remind him of the dead of Kuina. :noworry
And just because Kuina made a promise with Zoro doesn’t mean it has anything to do with Tagishi.
Zoro + Robin is much more likely in my eyes.

Imagine the look on Sanji’s face if that would happen :smile-big

Maybe I say this cause Zoro is my number 1 fafo char and Robin my number 3 but o well this is my opinion. (BTW if my nr 1+2 fafo chars would match up it would just be wrong (Zoro and chopper) :p

Robin seems amused by EVERYONE's behavior. Thats why she's awesome.
Plus if you think about it ... I don't think Sanji could settle for any one woman. And also Nami doesn't really pair up as well with sanji as he does with her. Because Nami just takes advantage of sanji at every opportunity, If nami is going to pair up with anybody one the crew it'll be Luffy. Thier personalities compliment each other, plus they have a really good relationship where they support each other. Nami was the first to offer to help luffy climb giant jack in skypeia. She wouldn't put her self in that kind of danger for just anybody.

I think that Luffy and Nami will end up together because they look so right together.

There has been several hints by the author:

1) When Luffy carried nami up the mountain during the chopper arc.
2) When Luffy wore Nami's jacket during the chopper arc.
3) Nami is always the one who holds luffy's hat.

Ussop wore it during the Davy back fight against foxy.
But that pairing really sucks so i'll run with the whole luffy nami thing... It works.
Robin will have to pair up with zoro. Look how they react towards eachother when robin joins up. He's pretty much the only one she doesn't try and manipulate. Plus he got really pissed when enel attacked her. That was out of character for zoro. Unless there is a reason he was mad. He didn't get visibly mad when arlong was mean or hurt nami, Luffy did. But not zoro. I'm just saying ...
Sanji ... he can have alvida. He definitly deserves the boobie prize.

Just to start something interesting here. OP might not be a romance manga, but who knows what ODA might stir up later in the series.

Anyway, So many combinations, if your choice not there, pls give some interesting suggestion.

Some crap suggestions I herd fr other forum was Chopper and Sogeking (haha..Gay) , Zoro and his sword....hahahaahah :)

Interesting enough i was thinking about this excat same thing "Love triangle's of One Piece".
I'm just going to start of and just kick Sanji out of the competion he hits on like every pretty girl he mets up with lol.

Zoro and Tagishi:- Hmm? Possible if since Oda put her in the anime for some purpose for Zoro, she might have a Love impact on Zoro later on in the anime, but then again this anime isnt really about Romance is it ^.-

Zoro and Robin:- This makes me laugh, Robin and Zoro i cant really see them together an i think someone wrote that he got angry when that bastard enil zapped robin well of course he cares about her and doesnt want her to get hurt. But there is that case in ep.130 when robin was looking at him he turned his head away kind of blushing >;o Maybe he was thinking bad thoughts.

Luffy and Robin:- Lmfao highly impossible unless oda wants to suprise us with some kind of love twist. Robin is smart, and is like 100% always serious, Luffy >...> need I say more dont get me wrong i love Luffy to death he's herioc, honest, funny, but seriously can anyone picture robin and luffy together? @>@

Luffy and nami:- This is one relationship i can see happening ( the other one being Zoro and Tagishi. I mean sure everyone else in Luffy's crew were saved by him but in Nami's Case she's the only one he trusts his hat to and asks only her to fix his hat when ever it gets damaged. Another point is that Nami's happiness was trusted to luffy might be something there.

Vivi and Cosa:- >.> Who cares about that bum Cosa

Usop and Kaya:- lol Its ovious these two are going to get together, she becomes a docter so that she can heal usop internal and external injurious if u know wut i mean ^.-

Tagishi and Smoker:- >;o hmm? Never really thought about this, its possible though.

Hina and Smoker:- >;o maybe they already have something going on ^.-, if not its still possible they will.

Vivi and Luffy:- Don't think this will ever happen she's a princess he's a 300mil wanted man soon to be pirate king lol.

Anyway tthis is my little tthoughts on some love twists in one piece. I did want to point out one other thing if u notice lol Luffy is 18 (19 now i think) and was 0 sexual urges same with Zorro lol they only think about being the best so ....


[br]Posted on: March 07, 2007, 06:00:14 PM_________________________________________________

yeah that would be great

change my choice now bout robin....she's with luffy while nami still with zoro


How in the world can Nami be with zoro? >.> And Robin saved Luffy cause she obviously saw that he was the only one that stood any chance of beating that sand bastard. Luffy and Robin together? @.@. I'm sorry not downgradeing anyone but seriously if u think about it can u even begin to see fun adventureing Luffy and book reading Robin together(doesnt help that either that Robin has a good 10 years on Luffy D;)? lol. Another think i like wut one guy said about Zoro and Robin how like oppsites attract. 75% of the time Zoro is serious i think him and Robin would be a good match up.

But that would be a very quiet relationship, since Robin will be busy with his books and Zoro will be sleeping and practicing all the time XD

Luffy will be intimidate by Nami, since Nami is way stronger than he is ^^

but that is why the relationships would work they wouldnt be all up in each others face all the time and they could do there own stuff and then have fun together (the way it should be)

and that would mean that luffy was in an abusive releationship

(hi ahem I'm new to this thread and I'll gat started now...)

yes! the number one pairing for me is Luffy-Nami...like others said before, Nami almost always holds Luffy's precious hat, among a lot of other stuff already mentioned. It's really the strongest never-actually-shown pairing.

And honestly I don't think we should consider marriage and tying the knot and how the characters'll look or be compatible when that happens. I mean, it's One Piece. As Oda said (SBS), "They're in love with adventure!" and therefore romance will probably show if at all at the very end. I don't think he's gonna give it an "and they settled down and lived happily ever after" ending.

Other than that, i'm fine with Zoro-Robin or Zoro-Tashigi, Usopp-Kaya, and...if ever there's a new Mugiwara babe, which I bet there will be, then I'm all for a love quadrangle between her, Zoro, Robin and Sanji. Sanji for now just seems so...impermanent.

I really don&#180;t think that romance will ever get a place (its a german turn of speech, so i don&#180;t know if it is right in english) in One Piece. But of course it is fun to speculate. Usopp and Kaya is probably a match in my eyes. Also Hina and Smoker. I can&#180;t imagine a clear relationsship within the strawhat group. The only thing regarding the development of an special relationsship is in my opinion between Robin and Chopper. But of course not as an pair but as mother and child. I think it is pretty obvious and also sweet. Chopper was so frightened at Robin at the beginning and now look on his face everytime when Robin does something no matter what: He beams with joy. In my opinion it is the only new relationsship that is intended by Oda directly and not only by our imagination.

@natsu0427
Please Please at least try to explain in one sentence why do you like the Pairing. I don´t think someone can imagine your opinion just because of "tashigi and zoro"
I don´t write that to intentionally diss you but 3 word posts aren´t popular and they don´t make sense for you and for the other forum members. You simply cannot start an proper discussion on that. sorry but i had just stayed uo all night finishing a research paper so i lacked the ability to form sentences but mainly my reasoning for ashigi and zoro is gonna be the same as anyone else who thinks that an i didnt feel like i needed to repeat the same thing over again

Isn't this for humour too? Oh wait, it's for plot. I hardly want to discuss it, because it won't happen and it will be completely one sided love, but this is what you call a crush. I refuse to discuss it any further than it won't happen, because then I'm just one step away from those crazy people who make fanclubs dedicated to pairings which haven't happened. Might as well start an "Admiral Smoker" fanclub, since that's the prediction I'm looking forward to most.

Well she's always called herself the pirate empress it's somewhat fitting that she should fall for the pirate king.:amuse

As for Luffy, i just expect more moments like when he walked into Boa's chamber. "Aw.. no food, huh....Hey! What're you doing all naked and stuff."

One thing is for sure Sanji is going to experience jealousy on a whole new level.:XD

November 17, 2008, 05:53 PM
I think there is going to be a massive misunderstanding and there is going to be a one sided platonic love between luffy and boa.
As much as they are the perfect fit (pirate empress and piratre king), luffy wants to be the freeest man alive which means hell will freeze ten times over before he is comited to any type of romantic relationship.

But one thing must happen for those two be together, Luffy became a man. Because right now he is neither a man or a woman! But the quiet one is the one that woman should be afraid!

I dont think romance actually fits one piece. Wouldnt it be stupidly wierd to see luffy in love? Or imagine zoro running of with tashigi, or nami/robin actually returning sanji's feelings. it is just not right, doesnt fit the mood or characters in the story IMO. Chopper in love would be errrr cute/ridiculous, specially since he doesnt find human girls attractive meaning he would end up with something he stole from a zoo or pet zoo(chopper with a sheep would be hilarious though). Ussop in love? Thats even more ridiculous than chopper with a pet zoo animal....
WB? He is too old and doesnt fit his character in the least bit.
Shanks in love? No way, almost as ridiculous as luffy in love.
Garp in love? Given that luffy exists it is clear that there was some women in his life. Dispite being very similar to luffy, he is one of the few characters I could see with a lover.
Dragon? Probable, but not in the current storyline, maybe a past where luffys mom mysteriously disappeared because of the WG.

Overall I dont think OP was made for romance.

some people think luffy will gain a crew member from the amazon place ._. but what if he gains the entire amazon pirate crew just because hancock likes him enuf to be on his crew. That would make his bounty jump so freakin high and he would be the second most wanted person in the world(numba one would be his dad) o_o giving luffy shicibukai status and probly the best crew anyone could imagine(aside from sanji hitting on most of the amazons)

kkck
November 20, 2008, 12:23 PM
^Sanji wouldnt hit on most of the amazons though. He doesnt hit on women, he hits on "beautiful women", meaning he would only hit on the few rare beauties in Amazon lili. Remember that the info boxes at the introduction of amazon lili said beauties were rare in amason lili.

November 21, 2008, 11:20 AM
I don't speak Japanese, so i can't be sure, but the English phrase "rare beauty" typically means "beauty that is rarely seen anywhere else."

As in "That girl is a rare beauty."

That's what i took that text box to mean. It would also go much better with the surroundings because clearly their were plenty of beauties on the Kuja island. Besides if it was trying to say there weren't many beautiful women there are many better ways to say that in English.

Kaiser Will
November 21, 2008, 02:11 PM
Concept of beuty is very subjective, just look here (http://www.onemanga.com/Fairy_Tail/5/18/) and here (http://http://www.onemanga.com/Fairy_Tail/5/19/).
As you can see one should think that Lucy is hot, but others not the concept depends from every person.

But in One Piece the Risky Brothers said that mermaids are more beutiful than Hancock. And Margaret said that Hancock is the most beutiful woman in the world.

But who would imagine that sameone so important like Hancock could fall for Luffy.

Hey, I'd say if Hancock plays her cards right she has about the same amount of chance with Luffy as Chi-Chi had with Goku in Dragonball.

bittman
November 26, 2008, 11:18 PM
Really GoldenOrbs? They'll have kids by the end of the ten year flashforward? Oh wait, One Piece is long enough already.

Luffy doesn't get women, don't know why things would change miraculously for Hancock. Luffy see's women as men with a different body shape, so I can't see how a "Romance in OP" topic can even see Luffy as romantic.

And I'm kind of over people comparing Dragonball and One Piece. This is somewhat off topic, but though Oda's inspiration is indeed DragonBall, he doesn't, before writing or drawing, think to himself "How would it happen in DragonBall?"

But yeah, on beauty: it is of course very subjective. Look at the davy back "Most beautiful pirate" thread. Lots voted for Hancock, but I didn't because to me she's just sexy and not beautiful.

November 27, 2008, 12:02 AM
I don't even see the comparison between Luffy and Hancock and Goku and Chi Chi. In Dragon Ball, Goku won Chi Chi's hand in marriage sort of by the way, and she became enamored with him and eventually chased him down to force him to fulfill his "promise". Goku basically didn't wanna renege on a promise, so he went with it. Here, Luffy did absolutely NOTHING but impress Hancock with his willingness to defy the World Government, and she's become so lovesick that she's physically ill. The difference is, there's an actual disease this time, and there's nothing for Hancock to hold over Luffy's head to force him to marry her, like Chi Chi had. Not to mention that considering the situation, Luffy can't afford to have a fangirl who is also a rival pirate captain, an empress, and a Shichibukai hanging around his crew fangirl-ing, Hancock wouldn't fit the crew. As of now, I'm keeping "Hancock joins" as the "Dumb Theory of the Month". About two months ago it was "Haki is All-Powerful", last month it was "Haki is All-Powerful/Marguerite Will Join", and we see where both of those have ended up as of now...

kkck
November 27, 2008, 12:34 AM
The chichi-goku comparison isnt used as much about the circumstances but rather because of the characters actitude towards it.
Goku simply went along with his marriage and never truly got an real understanding of what being married meant or being a father; the hypothetical situation in which some people think luffy ends up with boa in somewhat similar. Luffy could end up in a relationship with hancock, yet dont really understand it or even have a clue that he is in a relationship.
While I dont really see hancock joining the crew, I do think that Pirate empress and Pirate king are a good match. And since oda is a DBZ fan, he might as well make it happen...

November 27, 2008, 01:44 AM
Lol. I would really love to see Hatchan x Caimie. Those two are a natural pair. Rayleigh's female friend who owns that bar saw it immediately. "Are you Hatchan's lover?"

Hatchan responded calmly, but Caimie was like "Me? Hatchan's lover? I can never be!". That was such a cute scene. Caimie loves Hatchan so much, and is so grateful to him for saving her so many times, and for providing a home for her and Papagg, that she doesn't think she "deserves" to be Hatchan's bride.

But yes. I think Oda might grant us that. Or at least, the next time, when the Strawhat finally reunited on the Shabondy Archipelago, they will see Hatchan and Caimie hand in hand. They already make too much physical contact anyways. :D

Oh. And about Zoro's comment when Enel bolts Robin. I found Enel's respond a lot more hilarious.
Zoro: She's a woman!
Enel: I noticed.

Or at least, that's what I think. :D

I'm really getting tired of all this LuffyxMeat crap... just because he doesn't doesn't show an interest in woman doesn't mean crap that what makes me like his character so much
Luffy obviously knows what makes a girl a girl and what makes a man a man he just thinks with his stomach most of the time.
Luffy is mature in his own way.

Example Man who loves his work so much that when his secretary puts the moves on him he just asks her for the paper work or w/e he has to get done.
Now if someone can show me one panel where Luffy looked at meat in a affectionate manner without it being just for comedy value then it's LuffyxGirl/Guy

No, Hancock fits with the SH... imo.. and I'll keep saying it untill Oda say she isn't going to join. You have theories and you have the stick with it. You can't agree with the opinion of someone else. Ok, but it doesn't mean because you don't like the idea it is dumb.

There were more theory's some came true some weren't..

But we shall see. If she joins, she joins. If she isn't she isnt.

Reason she could join is for example, her bitchy attitude against little animals. *She doesn't going to like chopper =(*

Oh well, we jus shall see.

EDIT:

Luffy knows what women are, when he saw Nami naked in Arabasta, he also got a bloodnose... if he really didn't get what women are, then he didn't had one v_v

Haha, Luffy doesn't know anything about women. Sure, he knows there are women, and why they are different to men. But if Luffy really knew anything about women, he would have picked up on Hancock's personality shift instantly.

Point is, Luffy knows "of" women. Not "about" women.

Oh, and who wouldn't get a bloody nose at naked Nami? Even a child probably would.

I've already said, how Luffy doesn't grow his interest toward womanship because mostly of Nami influence. As you know Nami a bit exobist, like to charge anyone who see her. In alabasta Luffy did initiate a peek at woman tub, he also got nose bleed with Nami "Happy Punch" :p. But recent development show that Luffy doesn't put interest in woman body anymore, like shown in passage to Enies Lobby and Kuja. Nami put crews into these situation (but Usopp, Franky, & especially Sanji and Brook still considered normal [the last 2 are total pervert :D]) But it save Luffy in Kuja anyway :tem. About Hancock hatred toward pet, did someone say any theory before? My theory is because what Tenryuubito pet did to her when she was enslaved (just look what happened to pirate on SA, imagine that happened to her). About Chopper, I guess he won't be kicked if he in human form. Hancock done that because she abhor weakness. A man should act strong, and that should chopper do :):amuse

Somehow I just dont see love happening in OP. The manga just isnt cut out for that. As much as boa is in love with luffy, luffy is way to dumb to actually ever do something about it or even something as simple as understanding it. You could sit luffy down, and slowly explain boa's feelings towards him and he still probably wouldnt get it. Zoro in love is as much as unlikely as luffy in love. Sanji is always in love (I know it is not love, but I dont know what else to call it...) but the odds of him getting some are very slim. Ussop, I wont even bother elaborating on him. Chopper isnt attracted to human women and the odds of him finding a creature such as himself are low. Franky is a middle aged liberal cyborg, no love for him IMO. Nami is young and way to interested in her carrier and money to bother with actual love IMO. Brook is an OLD perverted bag of bones, I dont see him getting some either.

robin-->luffy (she said twice she's interested in luffy, plus she used to call only luffy by his name in the past)
nami-->luffy (no particular reasons but she owes him a lot)
vivi-->luffy (same as above)
aisa-->luffy (she admires luffy)
usop<-->Kaya (it's the only obvious pair imo)
tashigi<-->zoro (although they are enemies they are uneasy with one another)
hina<-->smoker (they are old friends all right, but damn don't they really suit each other?)

So there's also a possibility that if only Hancock join, there's Luffy will end up with all of them :D. But I think if only a girl make direct approach (confess her feeling/make some sort of move, what I mean is tried being lovey dovey or something) I don't thing the other girl won't stand idle. There's could escalate to a fight :s. Scary!
