    One Piece General SBS Discussion Thread

    SBS - from the Japanese Shitsumon o Boshū Suru, which roughly translates to "I'm collecting questions" is a part of every One Piece volume since its fourth instalment.
    The SBS is usually found after each chapter in the volumes. There Oda-sensei answers questions of fans in his typically humorous way, sometimes giving more or less valuable information. This includes age, height, nationality and many more such data. In a special segment called "Usopp Gallery Pirates" it is also used as a showcase for fanart sent to him, respectively his publisher.

    So much for the information on what SBS is. Please use this thread to post and discuss SBS from now on~

    One Piece Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    SBS is a very interesting insertion to the manga. There are numerous things that had been "asked" by fans and one of them was the birthdays of various characters like the Straw Hat crews in which many are curious to know. In fact even us, international fans, can also participate in the SBS (Question-and-Answer") by writing in to Oda's publisher. The only requirement is that it has to be written in Japanese.

    and where can I find those SBS to read?
    22.01.2014: Vivi is going to participate the Reverie this year with King Cobra. And she'll finally join Luffy's crew.

    Possible new nakama IMO:
    Kin'emon / Momonosuke / Bellamy / Ceaser Clown / Bartolomeo / Cavendish

    Some of them got translated and you can read them on the OP wikia: http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/SBS
    The newer ones still need to get translated.

    Thumbs Up Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    That's right. Many volumes have already been translated and they are posted in the One Piece Wikia. All thanks to the translators who have done a great job.

    Let us take one volume for discussion.

    In Volume 4 for example, we have these "questions and answers":-

    D: What are the ages of Luffy, Zoro, Nami, and Shanks?

    O: At present

    Luffy is 17
    Zoro is 19
    Nami is 18
    Usopp is 17
    Shanks - I'll tell you his age from 10 years ago. He was 27 at the time he was hanging out in Luffy's village.

    ___

    D: Doesn't Zoro's name come from the famous pirate, "François l'Olonnais"?

    O: I took the name from Francois l'Ollonais, said to be the cruelest of all the "Pirates of the Caribbean". That, along with Morgan and Alvida, are names derived from actual pirates.


    D: This is about Captain "Buggy the Clown"! Is that Captain Buggy's real hair that sticks out of both sides of his hat? Or is it a decoration (like a wig)?

    O: Yes. This question has been asked several times. I believe this will answer your curiosity.

    _________

    D: Why does Luffy have so little "tension"?

    O: It must be because he's so stupid.


    D: How did Mohji's hair get like that?

    O: He was born like that. Only those 2 spots grow out quickly. If he left his hair alone, he'd end up looking like a rabbit.

    __________

    All these answers from Oda give additional information or details that have not or have yet been revealed in the manga. Some answers make me laugh. Oda-sensei does have a sense of Humour.

    ~~~~++~~~~Do You Love Me?~~~~++~~~~

    Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    Yep the SBS is an excellent source of information about characters. For example the last SBS featured in volume 75 gave the ages of DD's crew, as well as a drawing of a grown up Sugar.
    Sadly it's still not translated on the wikia, but I found a French site that gave a rough translation, and apparently Sugar looks like a 10 year old, but in reality she's 22. She's not that old.

    Green Grin Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    Didn't know that the last volume has already been translated into French. haha!

    It was kinda funny- someone wanted to be the pirate king and Oda's response was there was something wrong with his life.

    The ages of DD family was quite good. I didn't think that Sugar was actually a child though she had a child's body. But she wasn't that old either. Twenty-two years old is young and the adult look is very attractive. She looks cute.

    Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    I have a very vague memory that in one of the SBS Oda said that the average life of one piece humans lasts aroun 120 years.
    Does anyone remember seeing that or maybe even know in which SBS it was?

    Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    It's references here in the SBS:

    Quote Quote:
    D: Oda-sensei. On the cover of volume 54, you say that people can basically live to be 140, but is Kureha alright? Pen Name: O-baka-san

    O: Ah, right. Now that you mention it, she's 139, isn't she? Well, if we say that the limit for a normal person is 140 years, she's still superhuman, in the sense that she goes beyond other people. So she'll be fine. Also, old people who will die in a year do not walk around in the snow with bare midriffs.

    Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    I mean it's not really dick jokes, it's mostly a silly recurring gag where every time a new interesting devil fruit shows up, they ask Oda about the penis. First it was if Luffy's penis stretches, too, and since then it's just been used for characters like Jozu, does he have a diamond penis, etc. just stupid stuff like that.

    It's not like it's a bunch of dick jokes, again, just a single recurring gag.

    Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    I enjoyed the elaboration on the detail in certain panels you'd otherwise have missed out on. Like the time Sanji threatened to put razor blades in Zoro's food, and then Zoro's next dinner is very crunchy! XD
    It is good that he keeps putting in stupid jokey questions over serious ones, keep the comedy rolling as much as possible!
    So I said this with a belief that my opinion actually mattered at least by 1 iota!

    Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    Speaking of SBS, Greg who now has his OP column translated in english did a great coverage of volume 75. You can read the whole thing here but I want to highlight and found pretty interesting from the article is this:

    Quote Quote:
    "Dofy"

    Back when reading Chapter 682 in Weekly Jump, my eyes stopped on the panel where Vergo called Doflamingo by the nickname, "Dofy." Just a nickname, no 'san' or anything added to the end. Under most circumstances you can only do that when you've gotten to know someone extremely well over many years and, oh yeah, only if you're older or at least the same age as them.
    In some instances this rule is ignored among the Straw Hate Pirates because of how tightly-knit they are. So most of the time, dropping 'san' or some other honorific title is, well, it's kind of a big deal.

    So far we've seen four characters that can call him 'Dofy': Trebol, Pica, Diamante and Vergo. Their common threads? First, all of them are about the same age as Doflamingo or slightly older. Vergo and Doflamingo are the same age so they might even have been prep school chums (joke). Second, all of them are supreme officers in the Family. This seems to explain why other members older than Doflamingo don't actually call him 'Dofy'.

    Re: General SBS Discussion Thread

    Oda said on the SBS: Luffy (Haoshoku Haki), Zoro (Busoshoku Haki), Sanji (Kenbunshoku Haki) but when exactly will Zoro show his true mastery in Bososhoku ? Also I want to see Sanji Dodging bullets and hits with Kenbunshoku active not just hearing ladies cry from miles way .
