Many unpublished details have been revealed, but it was one of Oda’s answers that has surprised all his readers.
After the publication of the latest chapters of the “One Piece” manga, thousands of fans witnessed Luffy’s new transformation, the ‘gear 5’. But the curious thing is how this form gave the protagonist very cartoonish characteristics, something that the readers noticed and through their social networks said that it reminded them a lot of the drawings of yesteryear.
In the middle of the conversation between Oda and Gosho, the author of “One Piece” revealed that he was inspired by a cartoon to bring Luffy’s famous ‘Nika’ form to life. The cartoonist confirmed that he used Tom and Jerry as inspiration; That is why Mugiwara always appears laughing, with bulging eyes and changing his body in an exaggerated way.

What is “One Piece” about?
Wealth, fame and power. One man had obtained everything in this world and he was the ‘pirate king’, Gold Roger. But, before he died, his last words inspired the planet to venture out to sea: “My treasure? If they want it, it’s theirs. I have hidden everything in that place.”
Thus began what is known as the Great Age of Piracy, which launched hundreds of pirates into the sea to find the great One Piece treasure.
