One Piece Wants Everyone to Know Shanks Is a Ladies' Man

In the world-renowned shonen franchise, One Piece, the protagonist Monkey D. Luffy owes much of his swashbuckling prowess to the influence of his former mentor, the legendary Red-Haired Shanks. Shanks once selflessly sacrificed his arm to save Luffy's life, a moment that left a lasting impact on the young pirate. However, it has been quite some time since the two last met, leaving fans eagerly anticipating their eventual face-to-face reunion.

In a new publication, the series creator Eiichiro Oda sheds light on Shanks' true strength as a formidable force in the Grand Line. Notably, Oda also highlights that Shanks has a charismatic appeal and is quite popular among the ladies. This intriguing revelation adds depth to the character, drawing parallels between Shanks and his protégé Luffy in this regard.

Recently, Shanks played a significant role in the latest film of the franchise, One Piece Film: Red. The film introduces Shanks' daughter, Uta, who differs from her father in her pursuits. Instead of sailing the treacherous seas of the Grand Line like him, Uta is a renowned diva with a global presence, showcasing her musical talents worldwide. Though the film didn't feature the long-awaited reunion of Monkey D. Luffy and Red-Haired Shanks, it presented them teaming up to face a brand new threat, a thrilling adventure for fans.

As the final saga of the manga continues, all the pirates of the Grand Line are converging to not only seek the ultimate treasure, the One Piece but also to unravel the numerous mysteries that shroud their world. Among them, Shanks and his crew have returned to the forefront, indicating an inevitable encounter with the Straw Hat Pirates before the series concludes.

Fans of One Piece eagerly await the grand reunion between Luffy and his revered mentor, Shanks. Their meeting is anticipated to be one of the most significant events in the history of the series. As the final saga unfolds, it remains to be seen if Shanks' charismatic and ladies' man traits will be further explored, adding new dimensions to the story.

In the "SBS" column, where Eiichiro Oda answers fan questions, he addresses Shanks' appeal to women, clarifying that while the Red-Haired Pirate might not be flirtatious, he possesses an undeniable charm that captivates the hearts of many. This intriguing aspect of his character might become more pronounced as the manga approaches its conclusion.
