Is Luffy only attracted to Nami? Oda gave us the answer!

When Luffy saw Nami’s naked body thanks to Mr. 2 and later in Chapter 213 due to her happiness punch, he reacted and got excited. But on the other hand, when Luffy saw Boa Hancock naked it did not affect him in any way. Why was Luffy affected by Nami’s body, but not by Hancock’s body?

2 Different Reactions, 1 Answer!

As stated by Eiichiro Oda Luffy reacted to Nami’s naked body (in volumes 18 and 23, and both times it happened, Usopp was with him) because when he’s with Usopp, who’s the same age, it’s like a kid on a school trip: his bad side comes out!! So the culprit is definitely Usopp!

In other words, when Luffy is alone, his reaction with Nami is what it was with Hancock. He’s interested, but he’s not entranced by them.

Here’s Oda answer in SBS Vol 54:

Oda: Wow, I got a lot of questions about this. Is this what you guys are paying attention to? Don’t just read manga all day, go study some more!! Okay? Well, I say that, but I do nothing but draw manga. I noticed this when we were drawing it, but if Luffy had a nosebleed when he saw Hancock’s body, I think you would all be like “Ehh!?”. That’s not the Luffy we know. I believe that Luffy reacted to Nami’s naked body twice, in volumes 18 and 23, and both times it happened, Usopp was with him! He’s the suspicious one! In other words, when Luffy is alone, his reaction is what it was with Hancock. He’s interested, but he’s not entranced by her. But when he’s with Usopp, who’s the same age, it’s like a kid on a school trip: his bad side comes out!! Yeah, both sides of Luffy feel right to me, so the culprit is definitely Usopp!!

Oda explained how he draws females!

Zoro is going to surpass Oden!
