Oda answers us about Luffy’s possible attraction to Nami!

When Luffy saw Nami’s naked body thanks to Mr. 2 and later in Chapter 213 thanks to his happiness punch, he reacted and got excited. But on the other hand, when Luffy saw Boa Hancock naked, it didn’t make him react at all. Why was Luffy amazed by Nami’s bodybut not by Hancock?

2 different reactions for 1 answer

As stated by Eiichiro Oda, Luffy reacted to Nami’s naked body (in volumes 18 and 23, and both times it happened Usopp was with him) because when he is with Usopp, who is the same age as him, it’s like a child on a school trip: his bad side comes out! The culprit is therefore Usopp!

In other words, when Luffy is alone, his reaction to Nami is the same as Hancock. He is interested, but he is not bewitched by her.

Here is Oda’s response in SBS Vol 54:

Oda: Wow, I got a lot of questions about this. Is that what you pay attention to? Don’t just read manga all day, go study some more! OK ? Well, I say that, but I’m just drawing manga. I noticed that when we were drawing it, but if Luffy had had a nosebleed seeing Hancock’s body, I think you all would have said “Ehh!? “. This is not the Luffy we know. I believe Luffy reacted to Nami’s naked body twice, in volumes 18 and 23, and both times it happened, Usopp was with him! He is the suspect! In other words, when Luffy is alone, his reaction is the same as with Hancock. He is interested, but he is not bewitched by her. But when he’s with Usopp, who is the same age, it’s like a kid on a school trip: his bad side comes out! Yes, both sides of Luffy seem fair to me, so the culprit is definitely Usopp! !!
