Analysis: Romance in One Piece - LuNa/NaLu veteran
Chopper freaked out THRICE about Sanji's marriage while Nami didn't LuNa is the biggest ship of One Piece so it's enough proof that many. "Monkey D. Luffy" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of .. Though, he still hints at Luffy needing to uphold his duties and capabilities as. Let talk about Luffy and Hancock * Hancock is most beautiful woman in OP her that sanji and the rest of the mates cant grasp they been giving hints alot of them i only thing I've never though about was the romance between luffy and Nami.
This is one of the most rocky moments these two have. However, what I find interesting here is that he knows Nami can put a facade in other to save herself and her friends too - and this facade is something Zoro already saw through previously. He knows Nami is pretending here again, and because he has enough of it, he charges at her in order to wipe that facade off her face. However, he is stopped by Sanji who as Zoro said, doesn't know much in the first place.
If Zoro was truly so angry at Nami for killing Usopp and he wanted to kill her, why doesn't he show to be angry anymore when Sanji asks him about what Nami previously said? Instead, he is smirking a bit, and what he states implies he didn't truly believed what Nami said either. As if I didn't say it. Besides, he already suspects Arlong is the cause and the death of Nami's parent played a role here too.
The only thing he didn't know is the fact Nami was trying to buy back her village from Arlong - but on the other hand, knowing him, he could be smart enough to realize Arlong was doing something not so good to her village. All the time during their fight against Arlong, the crew has shown how much they care about Nami, and I find a moment where Zoro shows Nami that Arlong is going down to be extremely nice.
However, the most surprising moment was when Arlong took Zoro's bandages. It is clear from Nami's face she is very worried about Zoro's wounds and she realizes he has lied to her about it earlier in order to protect her. If Zoro told her he got his wound from a Shichibukai, I doubt Nami would be able to hit him in his wound, which however would make her more suspicious to the Arlong. He knew that Nami has a soft spot when it comes to these - she has shown to be very worried about his wounds that weren't that serious like this one and if she knew how serious this one was, there is no way Arlong would be able to trust her.
After Nami saw the excess of his wounds, she must have felt guilty for hitting him there. In the battle, Zoro is seriously injured and he is shown to be unable to fight. However, when an officer Nezumi shows up, Zoro doesn't like the guy's actions at all. He catches him with ease and he tells him the guy isn't really nice for trying to ruin the moment where people were celebrating.
No matter how I look at it, Zoro was seriously angry that someone was trying to ruin the moment where Nami was truly freed from Arlong, his severe injuries weren't that significant to him at that moment at all.
To the point they shouldn't. Nami's first victim in her money schemes is Zoro who needed to borrow some money in other to buy swords. However, he definitely lowered his guard around her as he totally didn't catch her talking about interest - while Nami is very happy he fell for it what a sly move Nami-san!
Zoro is however the first and only victim who Nami happilly lended her money to without the past debts as he by that point didn't do anything he has to repay her for. A Reverse Mountain arc is a very important arc where it is clearly shown how much a navigator is needed.
Zoro pays attention to Nami as she tries to explain why is Calm Belt dangerous, but before she can get to the crucial point, the whole crew experiences it. It's not like he didn't respect her or something, he just found hard to believe a storm is safer than Calm Belt who wouldn't and it's not like he totally dissmissed what she said, as he still asks for her point.
In the first place, Zoro asked why didn't they just head south to Grand Line instead of using a mountain entrance, he couldn't know Calm Belts were dangerous before he experienced it.
Later, he admits that Nami was right and they have to use the entrance although he still finds it hard to believe. Later, they succesfully enter Grand Line and also get two new passengers onboard - Ms. The crew then sails to their next destination but along the way, they have to overcome many weather changes.
All crewmembers had their hands full of work, but Zoro alone was able to sleep through all of it. When he wakes up, he doesn't have much time before Nami mercilessly punches him for his idiocy. Although Zoro shows he wanted to go back at her It's not like he is really afraid of her or anything, but rather, he didn't even have a chance after she beat him real good.
Zoro borrowed some money from Nami. In Whiskey Peak, it is shown Nami can make Zoro do what she wants despite the fact he is very strongly against it and he even goes to such lenghts as to argue with her about it. Most interestingly though, it's Nami's sentence about the promise that actually makes Zoro do what she wants. Nami wasn't there when Zoro made the biggest promises in his life to Kuina and later to Luffy.
She wasn't there, and yet she knew what he deems as important, the fact promises are things he would never want to break. With that said, Zoro has to go even though he doesn't want. Their debt is this way wiped out and it is not mentioned anymore at least in manga.
When Zoro for example gets lost, he is very happy to see "Nami" because he knows she can help him. This is already a moment that shows he trusts her completely when it comes to navigation. That is to say, Zoro seems to sometimes still let his guard down when Nami is concerned aside from danger - he admited it himself in Baratie arc and now, he didn't really consider it might be someone else than Nami too.
And knowing him, he should have been able to kind of fight back or something and he could have probably been able to get from the enemy, IF he suspected "Nami" here, just a little. Later, Zoro, Nami and Vivi who were all captured by Mr.
There are a lot of things going on here, but I will mention only two most important things. When Zoro declares he will cut off his feet to fight the opponents, Nami and Vivi are both extremely shocked by it. However, Nami can't exactly say what else can he do, so in the end, he attemps to do it. Thanks to Luffy's intrusion, Zoro didn't succesfully do it, but when he is asked about whether they have problems, Zoro just casually says nothing at all.
Nami however finds his bleeding legs to be a problem and it is clear she doesn't like it in the slightest. This moment shows how much Nami can be worried about him a lot even though Zoro doesn't need it and he doesn't consider that a problem in the slightest. It is still nice to see Nami would worry about him and care about him even when he deems it as necessary. Knowing the guy being a fighter and if he doesn't want to seriously look for his own wounds, then someone else has to do it right?
After Nami has calmed down, she and Zoro have an extremely relaxed conversation going on and both Vivi and their enemies were taken aback by it.
Analyses of their relationship
These two somehow already reached the point where they can even talk about these kind of things as they have already gotten used to it now.
They are shown to be interacting the most despite being in such a condition, it's hard to explain, but I find it like they understand each other so well they know what awaits them. As if it wasn't enough, Oda also gave them a small moment of their interaction in the battle Straw Hats vs.
- I will follow you down to hell
- Monkey D. Luffy/Relationships
- See, that’s what the app is perfect for.
Barouque Works on Little Garden even though they themselves weren't that significant at that moment. When Vivi tells the crew about Nami's condition worsen, Zoro and Luffy are the only ones drawn to notice it. There is a big possibility he carried her inside, because later when Nami comes out, Zoro tells her he told her to rest while he take care of the rest. In the manga, there was no moment he ever told that to her directly, nor was there a moment someone carrying Nami inside - interestingly too, it seems like Zoro voluntarily chose to navigate because he is doing it and seriously, who in their right minds would put him in this position?
The only time Zoro could have said he is gonna take care of the rest navigating while she should rest is while he carries her. If anyone right minded heard him saying he will take care of the rest aka things Nami does - navigatingthere is no way they would just let him do it.
These whole moments show that he cares about her a lot and despite his sense of direction, he is willing to take her position until she gets better. He also trusts her now when it comes to navigation and he doesn't question her orders on the sea anymore. After they managed to run from the storm, there is a small snippet that could indicate Zoro took Nami inside her room after she collapsed - he is seen to be the only one rushing on the deck where Nami collapsed in Vivi's arms.
What even fuels this is simply the fact he chose to sleep in her room with other crewmembers instead of guarding the ship - which Sanji was doing. The last moment that shows he cares is also when he stayed in Nami's room and told Luffy to go outside. This again I found to be a small moment where he shows he is worried about her too. There are so many moments here, I seriously don't know where to start. I think I will start with these little moments that center around Sanji, Zoro and Nami.
There were already times Zoro got in a fight with Sanji because of Nami - the first time in Cocoyashi Village. However, in Alabasta Zoro very often retorts back whenever Sanji says anything that has to do with Nami - whether he is jealous or not, it's sure he doesn't really like it as it is shown that Nami is the only girl Sanji swoons over Zoro is more concerned about.
He can easily detect her money-like thoughts and he is also very well aware whenever she uses her flirtarious side. However, he never falls for it because he knows she doesn't do it because she means it seriously but rather in other to achieve something.
Nami usually says nothing when he practices, but she somehow must have felt his tension after they left Luffy with Crocodile back in Rainbase. She tells him to not waste his strenght on something like that but Zoro probably finds her annoying and he just tells her to shut up. It was kinda harsh from Zoro, but that still displays he isn't afraid to say something like that to her when he finds her annoying him. Again, she can be worried about him even though he doesn't truly care about it.
She didn't even comment on other crewmembers at all. She runs from them and Zoro has no choice but to worry about her and try to find her.
Nami on the other hand was questioning where the swordsman go, because she knows Zoro would be able to take care of them if he was there with her. He saves her from the certain death and seriously, this isn't the only moment he saved Nami despite being lost - earlier, he took care of some bandits that were ready to attack Nami and Usopp too.
Could this possibly mean that somewhere in his heart, he has a compass to where Nami is? I really like this headcannon, whoever it was.
Doublefinger wouldn't come after her and when he tries to warn her, she is already gone. Just a thought that Nami has to really fight when she is mostly scared of it makes him uneasy and worried. During their fights and after it, I find it very interesting that Nami and Zoro both learnt the things they will use later on from the crew the most - Nami learnt how to use Clima tact, while Zoro learnt how to cut iron; there is also a possibility he also awakened Kenbunshoku Haki here, which would be even more significant.
After Zoro's fight, he is injured but still worried about others He probably shouldn't underestimate her that much, but I can understand him though.
By that time, Nami has shown to be brave and all, but Zoro knows she isn't one of the strongest and seriously, she is supposed to face a professional assassin? He didn't know anything about Nami's staff, that's why he couldn't have possibly thought about her being able to fight and she would probably choose to run instead.
An ultimate moment between Zoro and Nami, a moment that every ZoNa shipper should remember. A very small moment but still a moment, where Zoro carries Nami despite his injuries! He knows full well she is lying through her teeth, but he still copes with it. She was seen running before she even found him. Then why is it that after she saw him, she requested something like that? I think that by ordering him something like that, she can make sure he is absolutely fine, because let's face it - his wound wouldn't seem like nothing at all.
She knew if he colapsed, it was a very serious wound, whereas if he does carry her, Zoro will prove her he is alright. There is also a pssibility of her being spoiled hahah Her leg might have truly hurt her, but it wasn't that bad to incapable her - before she found him and after he carried her, she is seen to stand and running fine too.
What is also nice to see is that although their debt was already cleared, Nami can still order Zoro around despite he doesn't really like it. It is also nice to see the original trio again. Most of the time, it shows how Zoro and Nami are both more mature and don't recklessly jump into every single thing but leaving them have to deal with their a lot more reckless captain. I think this is also an appropriate time to show Nami doesn't always just recklessly beat everyone, Zoro including.
Just like the third non-shipper states: An early introduction allows you to get the audience interested in her and rooting for her, gives you space for Character Development, and gives her relationship with her eventual partner the most time to develop organically.
Pairing up two characters without meaningful moments, emotional build-up and development, is the equivalent to lazy writing. Is he, a man who planned the ending years ago and is still sticking to said ending, a bad writer? Not only against rival ships but mainly against One Piece story and consistent development. Taking a look at Romance Dawn V. Luckily the first two non-shippers I meantioned shed some light on this subject: Even Oda lampshaped this by giving his own translation to the title: Adventure, heroism, mystery, virtue, idealism… we can find comedy and tragedy, happiness and sadness.
And among the virtues and the idealism we find companionship and love. If that story were to be elaborated futher, which two characters would had shared the most moments to become endgame? The answer is pretty simple: The golden-hearted protagonist and the female lead! But when debating, the weight of the argument depends on edvidence so we need to rely on what we can confirm.
Edvidence of this being a last minute decision remains on the first color cover: Yet as the second non-shipper noted: You might think otherwise, but I had no intention of bringing in someone new to fill that [heroine] role.
While considering stuff like lines, frogs, sweat, fire, nonexistent sexual tension, assumption of sexuality, and even assumptions of pregnancy, as legitimate proofs of a plausible outcome!
But in order to reach a conclusion that remains true to One Piece and its nature we have to rely on the very same foundation that was already described several times: Even then Nami treated their relationship as a mere business and later betrayed the crew Still Luffy always trusted Nami to the point of putting blind faith in her.
Even when given reasons not to do so. But what else makes this situation with Nami any different from others we see in the manga?
And he constantly try to reach out to her despite her harsh attitude and the fact he knew next to nothing about her past and her current circumstances. It was only when he saw her cry he got enough motivation to beat Arlong, and it was only when he got a small glimpse of what she went through that he lost it! How does Nami respond to this?
