Luffy is the pirate-wannabe who can’t swim. He is fairly immature despite all the experiences he has encountered reaching for his dream of becoming the king of pirates. He ate the Gum Gum Devil Fruit, giving him the ability to stretch his body and use it as an almost indestructible weapon.

He grew up in a town named Fuschia Village. He was inspired by the pirate captain “Red-Haired Shanks” to pursue the same path plus obtain the Pirate King Gold Roger’s legendary treasure “One Piece”. He believed that whoever becomes the Pirate King would gain the most freedom.

Luffy is often seen as an air headed kid. He’s too carefree to be looked at seriously. His huge appetite is also something that has made him notorious more than being the captain of his ship.

Yet in every struggle, Luffy always transforms into a very loyal captain who’s willing to risk his own life for others’ safety.

Eichiiro Oda, creator of One Piece once said that during the creation of Luffy’s character, he thought about “manliness”, since he felt Dragon Ball had done all the things that a child could be happy about. Luffy’s unusual ability was the result of Oda wanting to see a silly fighting style, so as to relax the reader, no matter how tense the situation gets.

Who is Pepesan?

20 something year-old otaku from the Philippines. I love making up articles around the topic of anime and would love to be a part of a local anime magazine and so I put up this blogzine to try to hone any writing skill I have. Also, the Pinoy anime community is in much need of help right now and so this is but a small contribution from me. Thank you for the support so far!
