It’s been so many years since I first discovered the anime of one piece and since I fell in love with the adventures of Luffy and company. I fondly remember the arc of Buggy the Clown, and not because it was one of the first, but because it was the one in which Zoro began to shine and in which Nami presented herself to the world in style.
This character has changed a lot over time, and for that reason I think it is worth collecting some curiosities that surely you did not know. Ready to get to know the Thief Cat a little better?
I cry but not much
Nami is a character that, from what we saw in the Arlong Park arc, he used to hide his feelings and avoid appearing weak before others. With the passage of time he was changing and he loosens more and more with the members of his band, although on several occasions it is possible to continue seeing glimpses of that desire of not wanting to give free rein to their emotions.
In the scenes where Nami breaks down crying, you can see how bites her lower lip. This gesture is a kind of defense mechanism that allows him not to cry as much as he would like, that is, he resists the desire.
A clear nationality
On several occasions, Eiichiro Oda made it very clear what nationalities the members of the Straw Hat gang would have if they belonged to the real world. In the case of Nami, the cat thief would come from Sweden.
I guess the author chose this country because years ago there was a big cliché that the most exuberant supermodels in the world came from this Nordic country.
A name that comes from luxury
In manganimes it is quite common that the names of the characters have some hidden meaning. Just as in the video game Kingdom Hearts its protagonist is called Sora (sky in Japanese), in one piece we have the example of Nami, which can be translated as “wave”.
When Oda was performing the first one piece sketchesone of his main goals was to create a female nakama for Luffy. Nami came with the third version of Romance Dawn, but before that there were two characters that preceded her.
The first is Silk, a young woman with blonde hair and facial features very similar to Nami’s who, as a child, was abandoned by her father, who was a pirate. while the second was Ann, a girl whose design is almost exactly like Nami’s (except for her hair color) and who had a pet bird. As a curiosity I must also say that both precursors to the Cat Thief appeared in two anime specials.
Nami’s first weapon
At the beginning of One Piece, Oda had thought that Nami would fight her enemies with an ax. However, later he changed his mind and preferred that the young woman fight using that curious “stick” that Usopp created for her. Can you imagine what it would have been like to see her carrying such an artifact?
Luffy’s weak point?
Throughout One Piece we have seen many comedic character scenes in which Nami pummels her teammates Sanji, Usopp, Chopper, Zoro and even Luffy in the head. This causes them to have large bumps on their heads, and surely you have never stopped to think about the following.
Today, Nami is the only person who has managed to beat Luffy into bumps WITHOUT USING HAKI.. It’s a bit far-fetched I know, but it’s also a very curious fact.
What power would Nami have if she ate a devil fruit?
Have you ever stopped to think about what kind of powers would mugiwaras have if they had consumed a devil fruit? Oda did think about it, and for that very reason we have an answer to the assumption that Nami had eaten some.
According to the author of One Piece, Nami would have the powers of the Goro Goro fruit.the one who ingested In the. So Nami could use very powerful electric attacks without the need to use his staffshe could even become a tremendously powerful warrior.
True Pirate DNA
And for the end I have left a rather curious fact that invites reflection. If we think of all the straw hat gang members and I ask you which character is most like a real pirateWhat would you answer me?
The correct answer would be Nami. Why? Well, because she is a person who occasionally consumes alcohol and gets drunk, she loves maps (especially treasure maps), she is obsessed with money and jewels, she is a true thief and would do anything to save her comrades .
I hope you found these curiosities interesting. Do you know any that I have left in the inkwell?
