Achieving Enlightenment the Otaku Way

Osu!  I wish you a happy new year, shokun!  Last time I shared with you “10 Inspiring Must-See Anime/Manga Series For Chasing Your Dreams” to help with your preps for your New Year Resolutions.  I hope that watching those 10 super inspiring anime helped kindle the fire of your dreams.  Today’s lesson is the first of the Fujinsei Kempo series this 2016, and what better way to start off the new year but with my favourite series ONE PIECE by the genius mangaka Oda Eiichiro (尾田栄一郎).  I dedicate this post to all of you amazing ONE PIECE fans.  Are you ready?  Let’s begin.  Osu!

10 Signs That You’ve Watched Too Much ONE PIECE

1. When you’re sick, meat is your medicine.
Similarly, when someone’s sick, you show them how you care by sharing your meat.

1. Monkey D. Luffy (ONE PIECE)

2. When everyone’s complaining about the horrible weather, you disinterestedly tell them:  “This weather is nothing. Wait till you see Grand Line.”

3. Instead of saying:  “I can’t swim.”, you say:  “I’m a Devil Fruit User.”

4. When you’re being forced by your mom to eat a fruit you absolutely hate, you tell her in your most serious voice:  “I can’t. I’ve already eaten a Devil Fruit.”

5. YOHOHOHOHO! when you’re happy. YOHOHOHOHO! when you’re sad. YOHOHOHOHO! when you’re angry. YOHOHOHOHO! even when you’re scared to death.

6. Your friend lost her beloved phone and wallet.
You: It must be the work of fairies. Let’s just laugh it off.

7. You channel your inner Usopp whenever things go wrong. You say:  “All according to my plan.”
Similarly, when wonderful things happen that absolutely has nothing to do with you, you take credit. For example:
Friend: Oh, look! A meteor shower. Wow. Lucky!
You: All according to my plan.

8. You channel your inner Boa Hancock whenever someone dares to act like a total a-hole to you. You look down on them so much that you’re looking up.

9. When you punch your friend in the face because he’s being an a-hole, you don’t say sorry but say instead: “No one can defend against the fist of love.”

10. Instead of giving them your phone number, e-mail, or Twitter handle, you rip a piece of paper and say: “Here’s my Vivre card.”

How many of these references did you understand?  If you know all of them, EXCELLENT!  As expected of my otaku student.  Now let’s watch some more ONE PIECE.  Class dismissed!  Osu!

    1. Oh my gosh! High-five, fellow ONE PIECE fan! Yes. I forgot about that line. How in the world? Well, next time I’ll include that when I’m not too lazy to write a second edition of this post. Thanks a lot. Cheers!


    1. Ahahaha! Maybe I should try doing that in real life, too. “All according to my plan.” I also want to try “Yohohoho”. It might make me look crazy to other people, but it’s hilarious. 😉

      1. That sounds funny. If I did that my friends and family will think I am weird. Still, totally worth it. Just like Usopp, I usually say “it was my plan from the beginning” in funny situations. Hear I thought, Aizen from Bleach uses this “according to my plans” routine haha.
        Yohohoho, Skull Joke!!💀😱😂

      2. Chopper is just so adorable. He’s so gullible, just like Luffy although Usopp won’t be able to fool Luffy since he knew him from waaaaay back. Unlike Chopper who knew him after they crossed Reverse Mountain.

      3. Chopper is quite lovable. I like him and shy behavior. Yeah I think Luffy is not that dumb to fall for Usopp’s lies. He is still tricked into believing that Usopp and Sniper King are two different people and the Sniper King is a superhero haha.

      4. Ahahaha! That was hilarious! Chopper and Luffy are the only ones who believe that Usopp and Sogeking are two different people. Usopp suddenly became so cool when he transformed into Sogeking. Enies Lobby will always be my favourite before the timeskip.

      5. I like Marineford Arc, too. That was heartbreaking, but since it was only technically Luffy who got involved in the actual war and the others were separated doing their own things, I personally prefer Enies Lobby where the Straw Hats really bonded together.

      6. I agree. The war was mostly focused on Luffy and realizing that the enemies are too strong. At Enies Lobby, it was amazing to see everyone fight their way to save one friend.

      7. Exactly! That’s why it’s my fave arc before the timeskip. Anyway, I was just talking with sindyblue (you know her, right?) about how this year it’s going to be the year of Sanji. I think you were the first one who told me about the speculations that he might be a Celestial Dragon, and I did some searching and I saw that there actually are people who are thinking that this might be the case. I’m still leery about this idea, but hey, this is Oda-sensei we’re talking about so we should expect the unexpected. I’d be totally floored, though, if Sanji ends up being a brother or a cousin of Doflamingo. Now THAT will be something shocking. XD

      8. I remember that post. I feel like Sanji will definitely get some screen time in the series. Sanji and Doflamingo? That sounds scary when you think about it. I have a feeling, something worse as Celestial Dragons is approaching.

      9. I’m proven wrong with this theory. Have you heard the latest revelation. Sanji’s not a Celestial Dragon but a son of a famous family of assassins. Kind of like Killua Zoldyck from HUNTERxHUNTER, I guess. This is so freaking cool, even moreso than the Celstial Dragon theory, I daresay!

      10. I know, right? Well, they’re supposedly a famous family of assassins so that must mean that they are filthy rich. Maybe travelling through Grandline and the four seas is no big deal to them. Can’t wait to know more.

      11. Hmmm. Indeed. But he learned from Red Leg, but maybe he was already interested in cooking even before he was still living with his assassin family? We can just wait and see. Well, his dream was to see All Blue so maybe he left his family to pursue that dream. I don’t know. Maybe.

      12. It would make sense. Based on his dream, it looks like he would rather cook than kill. Strangely, it almost feels like Sabo’s backstory when we found out he was actually raised by rich parents and he hated that life and tried to escape.

      13. I know, right? And it’s so entertaining because we’re not the only ones speculating. Just looking at my Twitter timeline, it’s flooded with various speculations and theories about Sanji’s past.

      14. I can’t wait until Oda-sensei gives us more details on Sanji. Strangely enough, after the recent news about him, I am starting to question about his backstory and his family. I wasn’t this curious but now since this is up in the air, I want to know about Sanji.

        Liked by 1 person

      15. Yes! Me, too! Oh well. All we have to do is wait for more chapters to come and read more about him. I wonder what his family’s like. I want to know if his family has something to do with how he acts around women. I gotta see what his mom is like.

        Liked by 1 person

      16. Maybe his past will explain why Sanji love women. It would be a twist to see if Sanji, at first, didn’t care for women until something drastically happened to him that changed his mind hahaha.

        Liked by 1 person

      17. Ahaha. Maybe his mom is like a force to be reckoned with. Or maybe a damsel in distress type that needs to be protected by the males in the family. Or maybe his dad loves his mom so much or something. Well, it’s revealed that Sanji’s the 3rd son (I think). I wonder what his siblings are like. Can’t wait!

    1. Well there are two good reasons to watch it: the series is not going to end any time soon, and it’s entertaining and funny to watch. If you’re struggling to find something to watch or are bored just start watching One Piece, you’ll like it.

      1. Ahahaha. It’s up to you. It is a big time investment. 700+ episodes and counting. I’m not trying to scare you, though. Just stating the facts. As an OP fan, it would be awesome if you watch and end up liking it. Then we can discuss its awesomeness. But of course, I also know that many people are intimidated by the sheer number of episodes. Good luck!

    2. Well, watching ONE PIECE is a BIIIIIIIIIG time investment. It’s up to you. I think you’ll need to watch at least 100 episodes to appreciate the series as a whole. It can be a bit slow at the beginning, but I think it’s worth it, as long as you have the time to spare to watch it. But as a huge ONE PIECE fan, I’d say go ahead and try watching it. I hope that you like it as much as I do. Cheers!


    1. Cool! High-five! And thank you. It’s my favourite anime and I just love writing posts about it. I never tire of it and I hope that I never do. Keep on watching it, as well. Hope we can have more ONE PIECE discussions in the future. Cheers!
