    Luffy's Journey (How Long Has it Taken?)

    I don't know if there is already an existing thread about this but as far as I know there isn't one. If I somehow missed the thread, please delete this one. Now on to the topic.

    While reading some of the other threads, it has been mentioned by some of the members that Luffy's voyage has took only about 70 days (manga, not anime). There is a French site listing the length of days it took for each of their adventures. I can't find the link but I'd appreciate it if someone provides it.

    I haven't been really thinking much about how long Luffy has been adventuring since he left his village but I was surprised that it took only 70 days or so to get to where he is now.
    So far, there is strong proof that this is indeed the case.

    I was thinking though if these lists considered the voyages across the sea as only 2-3 days long. I'm not too familiar with sailing but is it possible that the whole adventure (so far) longer than around 70 days, like 100+?

    I cannot discuss further since I do not have the timeline yet.

    EDIT

    Here's the link from the French site: http://www.volonte-d.com/details/temps.php

    Thanks Akainu for providing the link.

    imo it took longer but as we don't have any evidence but a lot of indications we'll have to wait 'till Oda tells us !?

    Re: Luffy's Journey (How Long Has it Taken?)

    I wonder if someone asked Oda about this.. Alot more interesting than Nami's/Robin's Bra size.. or is it?


    Luffy: Sanji, prepare the lunch-box!
    Sanji: Lunch-box?
    Luffy: Yes. A pirate's lunch-box!

    Re: Luffy's Journey (How Long Has it Taken?)

    It can be more than 1 year because WB told us that roger's death was 22 years ago. And at the beginning of the manga, it was also 22 year. The strange thing is the physical evolution we see with kobby and hermep.

    The french site is , like I said before when i was the first to post it , very convincing.

    They took the data book and they used the distance between each country to estimate time of travel between each town.

    One piece is not a coherent manga and never was either. Weird weather , weird geography , weird primes, weird power-up , weird timeline , ... One piece is fun and we don't care about all the incoherences.

    Re: Luffy's Journey (How Long Has it Taken?)

    yes, i agree OP is very very hard to explain.and doing so may take out some of the fun, but the time line that would be something i am shure i would love to have, and ode SBS well since he is a know jokster and very sarcastin i dont really take much of his answers seriously just the ones that u can tell he did thougth about that, and he is not just fireing answers out of his butocks with all do respect
    cuz if he thinks that i know that he is thinking what i think he is thinking then he thinks i know he thiks that, but he dont know that i know that he knows...savy

    That's what I was thinking too. I know it's been said that Luffy was becoming a dangerous threat to the WG so quickly but 3 months? That seems absurd. But then again, OP is absurd and we still love it.

    Puberty??? More like Mutation. I've seen puberty do some neat shit, don't get me wrong. But nothing that drastic in less then 3 months. Even taking into consideration fictional exaggeration.

    Re: Luffy's Journey (How Long Has it Taken?)

    I find it hard to believe too, only 3 months?? I think they might have been sailing between islands longer than we thought... or would it be that luffy and zoro got lost for so long before nami joined them... well, they might have just take it slow on east blue for all we know, since the sailing time is really the one thing you could stretch a lot of time of. I mean, without counting the halt, they almost travel half the planet, so isn't three month a little too fast?

    Re: Luffy's Journey (How Long Has it Taken?)

    I say maybe 6-8 months. It's just that alot of that time is just sailing in between islands, and Oda-sensei doesn't show most of that because it'd be boring. He just shows a little for the purposes of comedy and character development, and the rest just skips. Time between Syrup village and Baratie, that was a week or two in the space of like, 5 pages or so. Time from Cocoyashi Village to Loguetown. Time between Alabasta and that ship falling from Skypiea, time between leaving Skypiea and the Davy Back Fight, time spent on Skypiea after defeating Enel, it all adds up, it's just usually only shown in a few pages, because otherwise it would be boring and tedious.
