      Ooh yes I wish you had pushed the Adam Smith/One Piece connection a bit further, especially considering how the Straw Hats crew is essentially a “mini-society” where everyone specializes in their one skill, and the harmony/growth of the whole depends on everyone’s ability to fulfill their part.

I remember when all the crewmembers re-met and both Nami’s and Robin’s breasts had gotten bigger and my immediate 15 year-old reaction was “Wait where is this anime heading?” and it turned out the best of the saga had passed.
