Is Luffy only attracted to Nami? Oda gave us the answer!

[ad_1]

When Luffy saw Nami’s naked body thanks to Master 2 and later in Chapter 213 because of her happiness punch, was reactionary and excited. But on the other hand, when Luffy saw Boa Hancock naked, it didn’t affect him in any way. Why is Luffy affected by Nami’s body and not Hancock’s?

2 different reactions, one answer!

As mentioned by Eiichiro Oda Luffy it was a reaction to Nami’s naked body (in volumes 18 and 23, in both cases it happened, Usopp was with him) because when he’s with Usopp, who’s the same age, he’s like a kid on a school trip: the bad side comes out !! So the culprit is definitely Usopp!

In other words, when Luffy is alone, he reacts with Nami as he did with Hancock. He is interested, but not intrigued by them.

Here is Oda’s answer on SBS Vol 54:

Oda: Wow, I have a lot of questions about this. Is that what you guys are paying attention to? Don’t just read manga all day, go study more!! OK? Well, I say so, but I do nothing but draw manga. I noticed this when we were drawing it, but if Luffy had a nosebleed when he saw Hancock’s body, I guess you’d all be like “Eh!?”. This is not the Luffy we know. I think Luffy reacted to Nami’s naked body twice, in volumes 18 and 23, and both times it happened, Usopp was with him! It’s suspicious! In other words, when Luffy is alone, he reacts the same as he did with Hancock. He was interested, but not intrigued by her. But when he’s with Usopp, who’s the same age, it’s like a kid on a school trip: his bad side comes out!! Yes, both sides of Luffy feel right about me, so the culprit is definitely Usopp!!
