    The Gold Bug - Edgar Allan Poe

    To every OP-fan. You should read "the Gold Bug" by Edgar Allan Poe.
    Its very funny how Oda has taken inspiration from that masterpiece of a novel.
    I wont say how because i dont want to ruin the novel for you.

    But I can say that we finally get the reason for our dear straw hat capitan's strange hunt for a bug at...dont remember the name...the island before Skypeia-arc.(laughed out loud)

    Warning though, its a bit creepy, witch is predictable considering the writer




    Ps, It contains Pirates, hihihi. Ds

    Re: The Gold Bug - Edgar Allan Poe

    I just read it, and I really didn't see much similarity to One Piece. It was a great story, (reminiscent of Treasure Island, actually), but I don't think that Luffy's excitement over beetles at Jaya was a reference to this, I think it was mostly Luffy being simple-minded. I mean, Hercules and Atlas are real types of beetles, yet I've never heard of a real live beetle made out of solid gold. And he didn't find any gold beetles or treasures in the jungle on Jaya anyway. And I never thought of Oda as the kind of person who reads Poe, though that's just my impression, and has nothing really to do with fact. I still don't see much connection between the story and Jaya.
