Nico Robin, human in a world of characters (Essay)

Can someone answer this for me please?

  • *caution you may NOT like what you read * * *

I'm trying to be unbias but,

I have always found that Robin's backstory is the most compelling of all the Straw hats. It might be the only one that was beyond Oda's ability to do justice to, simply because it is pure drama a world that always has some comedy. This is a story about a girl who is delared a sinful living being and supposed procecuted by the world. That is freaking huge, certainly darker than any other subplot in the story. In the real world, North Korea actually persecutes people this way, by jailing relatives of criminals.

Luffy is so confusing

His maturity level is so inconsistent from episode to episode that, you'd almost think he had multiple personalities.

Which Luffy do you p…

Anyone for Sabo

Yesderday Sabo made his appearance in the Zou Arc,  Does anyone else think he would make a better protagonist than Luffy.  

Oda really blew a big chance to make Luffy a better character after the timeskip, and the more that he becomes surrounded by Adult Comrades, the more immature he looks, whenever Oda turns the switch from Comedy to Drama.  Oda, has started to rely soley on the comedy side of the switch to make Luffy's progress palitable. Why is he only mature when he's deep in battle?
