The Wano arc proves that Sanji is the best written and best developed character!

A brief overview of Sanji’s arc:

He uses the Raid Suit against his Pride, saving the citizens of Flower Capital, then Nami, Robin, Shinobu, and Momonosuke.

Black Maria and her group of women pose as women being attacked by an evil man, so Sanji tries to save them but gets caught. After getting caught by Black Maria, he shows his character evolution by asking Robin to come and save him. He learned that he doesn’t have to carry all the burden himself and can ask for help from others.

Due to using the raid suit, his latent Germa genes awaken, giving him an exoskeleton like his siblings. Queen literally swings a sword at his throat, and the bird shatters into pieces as Sanji is unimpressed. This causes him to throw a tantrum, as he risks becoming emotionless like his brothers.

He gets lost in thought and it is implied that he accidentally hit a woman (although this most likely did not happen). This causes his spirit to fall even further.

So far, Sanji’s journey has been more about supporting his friends than finding his dream. And even at this point in life or death, he thinks about Luffy. What will he want? A perfect scientific soldier or an “imperfect” man? !

It is obvious that a soldier is more useful for a King, than a cook/man – who is useless against women. But ! But not for his King. Not for his friend! Even through a million torments, he knows that Luffy will want Sanji to be just himself. So Sanji makes a decision and destroys the raid suit as he doesn’t want to transform into his brothers any more than he already has.

He calls Zoro through Den Den Mushi and asks him to kill him if he isn’t himself at the end of the battle.

He is extremely pissed at Queen (who pestered him to use the Raid Suit, because he was working with Judge) and hits him with Hell Memories.

sanji vs queen

We love his bow. We love the care Oda took in writing Sanji. In our opinion, he is the best written character in One Piece. What do you think ?
