From the anime One Piece, Monkey D. Luffy is man made of rubber after eating a devil's fruit called Gum-Gum Fruit, and from that he acquired it's unique rubber ability. Luffy is also the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates. A crew hand picked by him to accompany him along his journey to the Grand Line for the One Piece that allows him to claim the title "King of the Pirates". Shanks an old friend of Luffy's from his childhood gives him his straw hat in which Luffy holds as his most treasured item.

Why I like him: Carefree and lovable, yet knows exactly what is going on around him. When he is on screen he never fails to make me laugh. He's always willing to take on a fight for what he believes is right and will stick up for his crew no matter what. He likes to eat a lot as well. I love characters that are always stuffing their face with meat bones and other assorted typical foods.

Why I hate him: It's really hard to hate any character from One Piece (except Ussop), but if I really had to pick something about Luffy to hate I suppose it would be what I love about him as well. His carefree attitude at times is rather annoying and makes me question what he's really thinking. Blonde moment I suppose. Or a super clever trick to confuse enemies! Perhaps it's the typical good guy attitude he gives off as well that gets rather irritating.

Overall: Luffy would be second only to Chopper for favourite character and followed closely by Sanji as my third choice. One Piece also has 10 movies out which Luffy was in them all. Being the star of the show that's to be expected. With 431 episodes and counting One Piece shows no signs of stopping and for that I'm happy. I generally get bored with Shounen series but this one has kept me glued to the screen even through fillers (which are quite short in comparison to other anime). It will be a pleasure to see where Luffy's adventures take him and his crew as this wonderful anime goes on. YARRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrr.

  1. XD Thanks, I always learn a new urban term for something with you. That afro screenshot is amazing. I really don’t know if Luffy is cool or not and not going to complain about him, I just can’t take shounen… Probably Gintama, Yaiba and BLEACH are exceptions but the genre doesn’t fits with my preferences

    Luffy is one of my favorite anime characters because he reminds me of myself – headstrong, unafraid, and unabashedly manipulative.
