Cover painting One Piece chapter 1005 this week shows Katakuri sharing milk, donuts and cakes to a bunch of hungry pets. This shows that when not observed by others on the island, Katakuri is always ready to return to his warm and kind nature. Another interesting detail is the name of the Devil Child chapter or the demon child even referring to Robin, but in fact when Big Mom’s children see Katakuri’s torn mouth, he was also called. the child with the face of a demon, quite in the same situation as Robin.
At the beginning of the chapter is a scene where Black Maria traps Nico Robin with a silk called Hard Gum. Oda’s skill names always have two layers of meaning and this move is no exception. When writing Hard Gum in kanji in Japanese, this skill also means “My Own Melody”.
While waiting for Robin to be trapped, Black Maria had a very savage torture on Sanji. Leaving aside the noticeable details, let’s take a look at Black Maria’s lower spider body. So far, there has been no plausible explanation for the fact that a Zoan type like Maria possesses two different body parts similar to the Gifters. The most likely theory is that Black Maria used spider silk to create a clone for herself. However, when looking at the spider’s enchanted Sanji below, it was difficult to say that this was a complete clone controlled by Black Maria.
Let’s talk more about an expensive detail in chapter 1005, which is the scene where Sanji decides to ask for Robin’s help. First of all invite you to review this image.
After this image, a lot of criticism broke out, mainly about Sanji’s “badness”, since being a cool guy or “carrying team” is now so devastated that he has to ask for help from a girl. However, in my opinion, those are just superficial insights on the Sanji development process that Oda has built up over the past time.
Previously, when Robin was taken away by CP9, she refused any help from the Straw Hats, denying anything related to the Straw Hats for fear they would have to be for her to oppose the world government. . However, after that, the crew still ignored Robin’s abandonment, but chased after her as far as Justice Island and willingly burned the Government flag just to bring her back to her side.
Currently, the Sanji case is similar. In Whole Cake and Zou, knowing that his family was looking for him and knowing he had become a piece of a Yonko, Sanji went to Whole Cake by himself. Later, also out of concern for his teammates’ safety in front of a mighty Yonko like Big Mom, Sanji even fought Luffy once, said murderous words to him, then left and cried alone.
Both Robin and Sanji once chose to leave their comrades with the thought of not wanting to involve them, and then were helped by those same comrades who did not mind difficulties. Sanji shouted to Robin to save him, precisely because Sanji has accepted that a human being will have weaknesses, and there are things you can do and can’t do. Luffy doesn’t have any life skills, Zoro can’t walk alone, Nami is attracted to money, Usopp is easily scared … Sanji’s weakness is a woman and Sanji has accepted that fact. .
When he called out Robin’s name, it was when he began to trust his teammates completely and felt sorry for not having faith in them at Whole Cake. In the opposite direction, Robin used to live in an organization that did not trust each other. Therefore, the fact that Sanji believes in her is what she wants the most. The feeling of being a family, fully trusted, able to rely on each other is wonderful.
It can be said that the last chapter is an “maturity” of Sanji. In this arc, we will probably see more moments like this in the other members of the ice, such as Nami in front of Ulti’s threat, is also one like this. Don’t judge Oda’s performance in just a few pages of the story, but take a look at the character’s entire history, to see how good Oda has given each member of the Straw Hat crew.
