    One Piece-Real Pirates

    I dont know if this was posted but since i watched One Piece i came to like pirate movies so i watched a documentary about Blackbeard- he was known as the most notorious pirate along with Captain Kidd and Bartholomew Roberts.
    What i was suprised is that Blackbeard accepted a pardon with the Royal Navy that he could live a normal life if he wouldn't continue being a pirate.( He became a sichibukai :P ) but then he revolted and became again a pirate. Also his name was Edward Teach or Edward Thatch.

    I mean we could get hints about what happens in the future:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackbeard
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bartholomew_Roberts -he was .. a tall black man, near forty years of age.. also that book that he holds might not be the bible but the pirate code which he made.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolly_Roger
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Bonny


    Curently reading: One piece, naruto, d.gray-man, fma, fairytail, bleach, liar-game.

    If you have watched The Adventures of Baron Munchausen you can see some analogies between Munchhausen's crew and the Blackbeard Pirates (Sharpshooter with incredible eyesight & incredibly strong man) and so it might share some insight on what abilities Doc Q and Lafitte might have.
    It's fun to see how Oda combines his ideas with other sources.

    Oh, and you probably know it already, but a lot of character names in OP are inspired by real life pirate names or mean something related to ships/sea etc. in different languages.

    Sorry readers: taking a break from my One Piece reviews. Though I love doing them, One Piece Reviews are actually not near the top of my to-do list. Perhaps one day I'll return and do them properly.
