    The Meaning of Dreams in One Piece

    Ones ‘dreams’ is a central idea in Eiichiro Oda’s ‘One Piece’. Every Strawhat Crew member joins Luffy in pursuit of their individual ‘dreams’. The One Piece story ultimately revolves around Luffy and his dream of becoming pirate king. However, in doing so, Oda includes the varying dreams of the other members as well as that of the villains. Throughout One Piece the idea of dreams is conveyed over and over and the important question of "what makes a dream or goal good or bad?" arises. There is clearly a noticeable discrepancy between the portrayal of say, Crocodiles dream of creating a utopia versus Luffy’sdream of becoming pirate king. What makes them so different? How does the way in which characters in One piece pursue their dreams differ? Should one have a seemingly unattainable dream?

    • I think this is a really good point, however I feel that Oda gives these characters dreams is simply for plot and character development. I do not believe that the question "what makes a dream bad or good?" really arises but rather who is going to fight for their dreams the most. The crew members join Luffy to fight for their dreams and they collaborate until they reach Raftel or complete each of their dreams. – MazerBlade 2 weeks ago

    A character analysis on Luffy in One Piece

    Analyse the main character of One Piece. describe his character, narrative arc, themes, beliefs etc.

    • I would suggest to flesh out the topic and to provide some focus on the exact concept that should be discussed with regards to the character while using the character as a platform. – Locke 9 months ago

    • This could be too broad. You could probably do a character analysis focusing on just on just beliefs, narrative arc, etc. Do you favor any of those aspects of Luffy? – AbeRamirez 9 months ago

    • This may be a bit broad considering the length of the One Piece manga itself. It may be useful to analyze how Luffy grows as a protagonist within each given arc. – amy 8 months ago
