Volume 47 SBS
[SPOILER]Chapter 450 (Page 26)
D: When reading the SBS, please make sure the room is well-lit and that you are not too close to the page. When finished reading, please close your eyes and move them up, down, left and right to give them some exercise. (You too, Oda-sensei) by Tada-san
O: Aaack!! It's the usual "takeover squad"! Wait... huh? No... Oh! Now that I read closer... Such kind words. I'm sorry, I thought I was being screwed over once again! Thank you for thinking of everyone's health and well-being, Tada-san! There's plenty this volume to make up for last time, so here we go!! START!! THE S-S-B...!!
D: What should one do if Ener shoots down lightning bolts? by Pacchon III
O: First, guard yourself by ducking at light speed, then give him that golden right with a bit of rotation!! If you can't hit him, cover your bellybutton, cry and surrender! He's tough, folks!!
D: Question for Oda-sensei! Tell us the ages of the members of CP9. Please, Shigan! (I'm sorry! Don't dodge, Sensei!) P.N. No. 1
O: Yow! ...whew, that was close. Good thing I dodged, wahaha!! You can't touch this!!
D: I have a question, Oda-sensei. What would happen if you picked your nose with Shigan? Please test out this query. by Prince
O: Okay. AAAAAAGGGGHHH!!!
Chapter 451 (Page 46)
D: I always love reading One Piece, Oda-sensei. By the way, about those 200 Marine HQ captains and commanders that fought the Straw Hats in Volume 44. One of them had Devil Fruit Powers that were like a bunch of balls, remember? What's the name of that fruit, and what are the powers, exactly? It showed up in the anime, but I didn't hear what it was. Also, please explain the Sabi Sabi powers that showed up in the same scene. P.N. Mugi-mugi
O: Okay. Well, these powers were all described in the fanbook called One Piece Yellow, but for those of you who don't have it, I'll explain! There were three powers revealed in that battle scene.
Captain Verygood (Beri Beri Fruit): A grapeman. The parts of his body turn round and puffy like grapes, which he can rearrange as he likes.
Captain Shu (Sabi Sabi Fruit): Rustman. He can rust any metals he touches. This is the man who ruined Zoro's sword, Yubashiri.
Captain Sharingle (Shari Shari Fruit): A wheelman. Parts of his body turn into wheels and spin wildly. High attack strength.
(Note: Beri stands for "berry," sabi means "to rust," and sharin means wheel.)
D: What are those THINGS on Cocoro-san's chest, shells? Or an evolved form of scale? A NuBra? Pen Name: I Love Grandma
O: Hmmm... ummmm... Oh!! I'm sorry, I was groaning without realizing it. This is quite a question. I suppose I can't just answer "I don't want to think about it"? All right, here's your answer. It's KIND of like a "NuBra." And you'd better believe that suction is bearing the fate of world peace! Hang in there, shell "NuBra"!!
Chapter 452 (Page 66)
D: To Oda-sensei. By the way, yeah. My question is, why does Chopper say, "I'm not interested in naked women," in Chapter 446 (Volume 46)?! Your approximate age is 15, Chopper! Please ask him that for me, please. (18, Female ❤)
O: I see. Well, you might want to read it closer. He says, "I'm not interested in naked HUMAN women." He can speak human words, but he's still a reindeer! Which means, he can fall in love with a human because of his mind, but he won't be aroused by her looks. He just might be smitten with a really beautiful reindeer, though.
D: Hello, Oda-sensei!! I am TOTALLY in love with the new manly looks of Coby and Helmepp in Volume 45!!!! ❤ They are so hot! Tell me their birthdays! How about May 13th for Coby (Co = Go = 5, B looks like 13) and July 16th for Helmepp (Nana-hikari musuko, aka "idiot son," Nana = 7 and hi+mu being 16)? by Kukri
O: Well... You answered your own question. Works for me.
D: Hello, Oda-sensei! ❤ (murmur murmur (outdoor sounds)) By the way, how do you respond to the charges that the Oda Clinic performed a full plastic surgery on Coby?! (hands two mics over) We'd like to get a comment from Coby, as well. P.N. Mayuko Wakayama of the OP-Loving Saitama Citizens Group
O: He's hit his growth spurt! Haven't you ever seen a boy who comes back from summer vacation looking like a different person?! Boys grow in an instant, you know! He just tightened his muscles up a bit with some good discipline. Right, Coby?
Chapter 454 (Page 106)
D: Okay, so in Chapter 412, Volume 43, Nami rips Califa's clothes in search of the key! And like, right in front of Franky! That's ***ual harassment!! Who's going to want to marry her now?! Oda-sensei!! CAN I HAVE CALIFA?!
(P.N. I Would Die With Happiness If I Had a Secretary Like That)
O: Ready, set... WHO SAYS YOU GET HER?!
D: Is it true that you're half-made of naughty? P.N. Travel-loving Sights
O: Yep, that's right. I guess the other half would be stupidness. It's funny, there's really no worth to me being alive, but I'm pretty sure that if aliens invaded Earth and wiped out humanity, I would still be alive and well.
D: Oda-sensei!! My brother says that the order of the manga in Jump is decided by popularity. Is that true? (by Yasumo)
O: That's a fitting suspicion for a Jump reader. Since I get these fairly often, allow me to answer. To be precise, not quite. The order is decided every week by the Jump sub-chief editor. But it's true that the most popular series are placed in the front of the magazine. Also, sometimes he decides, we're pushing THIS one this week! I guess you could say it's the "order you could enjoy the magazine in." But of course, the only TRULY correct answer is to read it in the order YOU want.
D: Is Califa's Awa Awa Fruit really Paramecia, and not Logia type? P.N. Fruit Punch Samurai
O: Califa creates bubbles with her body and still retains her normal body, so she's Paramecia. Rub her, and the bubbles come. Handy, isn't it?
Chapter 455 (Page 126)
D: My question is about the rich-looking young lady with the binoculars in Chapters 436-437 from Volume 45! What exactly is she looking at?! I know Franky's a pervert, but I think SHE must be, too. I would like to know what she looks like, and what her name is. Good luck with your work! P.N. Gengerous Zone
O: I see... You found her. Then allow me to introduce the lady Marmieta ("I can see all"). Her manservant beside her is Yamenahare ("Now you stop that"). She is the only daughter of Bimine, the mayor of the "Gourmet Town," Pucci, which is connected to Water Seven via the Sea Express. This young woman is most ignorant of the ways of the world, and therefore quite the curious one! Having heard of the damage from the Aqua Laguna, she came here to deliver emergency supplies, and found herself witnessing the most extraordinary event!!
D: I've always wondered... Is Robin supposed to be based on ME? P.N. Nico Aya-chan
O: ...Uh, yeah.
D: Wait a second!! Oda-sensei!! You know that scene in Volume 45, where Robin squeezes Franky in a very important place? CAN SHE FEEL WHAT SHE'S SQUEEZING? You simply MUST tell me!!
O: Yes, she can. All the arms and legs she sprouts are part of her body. She feels the things she touches, and when she's hurt, that damage is done to her own body. So you see... She really DID grab his balls!! Girls, NEVER DO THIS. They're very tender!!
Chapter 457 (Page 166)
D: What would Franky's pirate symbol be? by Sen-chan
O: Well, let's see. Since everyone seems to need their own pirate symbol, how about this?
D: Question for you!! Is the swordsman "Ryuma" who was once said to have defeated a dragon the very same Ryuma that starred in the short story "Monsters" from your collection volume entitled "Wanted!"? He is, isn't he? I'm so desperate to know, I can't brush my teeth. If I get a cavity, I'll tell the dentist it was your fault. P.N. Satoru-pyon
D: Greetings!! I cracked open "Wanted!" for the first time in ages and re-read "Romance Dawn," which prompted me to notice that Luffy's grandpa in that story was basically the same guy as Vice Admiral Garp! Does that mean that Garp was once the captain of a crew of pirates? P.N. Nao
O: Well, here are two questions about my old short story collection, "Wanted!" I'll tackle Ryuma's first. The zombie Ryuma appears in Chapter 450 from this volume, and he is indeed the Ryuma who starred in "Monsters." In the world of One Piece, he's now a legendary swordsman who died of sickness. I wouldn't have minded if this had just slipped through the cracks, but I was happy to see that so many people noticed. Next, Garp. He appeared as Luffy's grandpa, and a pirate no less, in the one-shot that served as the basis for One Piece. He might look the same, but I want you to see these as different stories. Grandpa Garp from THIS One Piece is a true blue Marine, from birth till death!!
Chapter 458 (Page 186)
D: Oda-sensei! I've always wondered, aren't the Marine salutes kind of backward? I thought you saluted with the SIDE of your hand against the forehead! Explain please! P.N. Like That
O: Oh, right. After all this time, I can't remember ever answering this one. Yes, it is a bit different than what you'd expect, but there's a reason. Sailors have pull all sorts of ropes on a sailboat to make sure it can sail, and the tar on the ropes makes their hands filthy and black. It would be rude to show those blackened hands to a superior officer, so they salute showing the back of the hand. It's the kind of courtesy you'd expect from the Marines.
D: Hello, Oda-sensei. I know you're busy watching Iitomo (Waratte Iitomo, "You Can Laugh" a comedy program), but I hope you'll answer my question. What does it mean when people mention directions like 9 o'clock or 12 o'clock in your manga? P.N. **-kun Behind You
O: Well, just imagine a clock with you in the middle. 12 o'clock is right in front of you, 6 o'clock is right behind you. You just think of the ship the same way. There's no east west north south, you just use the directions you see.
D: Hello, Odacchi. OP started when I was in 1st grade, and has now reached its 10th anniversary. I've decided that I should step in and let you know how many panels you've drawn in 45 volumes! After a two-month investigation, I've found the result is 40,971
panels!! Round of applause! *silence* ...W-well, keep reaching for 100,000. I'll check in again when you hit 500 chapters. Bye-bye baby, shap babaloobap badap bam boom bang crash thud! P.N. Mr. 9's First Apprentice, Tatsuya *
O: You really counted 'em. So, I've drawn 40,000 panels. Hmmm. It doesn't hit home. But I appreciate your effort! Thanks a lot!! See you next volume!!
No SBS. [/SPOILER]
Volume 48 SBS
[SPOILER]Chapter 460 (Page 26)
D: Ding dong. Delivery! I've come with those ****o magazines you ordered. But I'm not giving them to you unless you let me start the SBS. What? You just want your ****o?! So I can start the SBS, then?! Here goes!!! "START THE SBS!!!"
...And enjoy your ****! P.N. Tani-san
O: You know, folks, when it comes to me, there's only one thing more important than three meals a day, one thing more important than the SBS, and that's ****O MAGS. This one's pretty good, too. Wow, that is one HOT curve. And look at those BAZONGAS!! I mean, they're just busting out of the- HOW DAMN HORNY AM I SUPPOSED TO BE, ANYWAY?!
Stop making me look bad!!
D: Hello, Odacchi! I have a question; will you hear me out? ...Oh, you will? Thanks! Here goes. In the song the Straw Hats sing called "Family," they have a line that goes "We're not acquaintances, we're not friends, we're family." If the Straw Hats really were an actual family, who would be the dad, and who would be the mom? P.N. Nashi
O: "Family" has been aired on TV, and it seems to be the most popular out of all the character songs. I really love it, too. My answer would currently be something like this.
• Dad: Franky (Thug)
• Mom: Robin
• First Son: Zoro
• Second Son: Sanji (Punk)
• Daughter: Nami
• Third Son: Usopp
• Fourth Son: Luffy
• Youngest: Chopper
D: Tell us Flame Fist Ace's height and weight! Personally I think January 1st would be great for his birthday! What do you say?! BY. AI ❤
O: Yeah, since an ace is worth one in cards. That works. He'd be about 185 cm tall.
Chapter 461 (Page 46)
D: Question for Oda-sensei, chapa! Is Captain T-Bone a General Zombie? Or is he just another boney man like our friend Brook? P.N. Chapapa Village Resident
O: Ooh, good question. Well, if you want to solve this by a process of elimination, he's not a Wild (animal) Zombie, and he's not a Surprise Zombie. Soldier Zombies are those without weapons, but since Captain T-Bone is armed, that would mean that, as you say, he is a General Zombie. (NOTE: ACTUALLY A HUMAN.)
D: Horohorohoro... "NEGATIVE HOLLOW"!!
Swiiishh... You're a little too bummed, Oda-san!! What would you like to be when you're reborn? P.N. Coby's classmate
O: ...I can't... I just can't do it. I don't have the will to go on. Time to die... But... If I had the chance to be reborn... I'd be... well... a stain. A stain on a rug. A very... persistent stain.
D: Oda-sensei, I realize you're very busy, but I do have a question. Nami's shorts changed between Chapters 445 and 446, in Volume 46... What happened? Thriller Bark is such a mysterious place, after all. P.N. Makigon
O: ...I can't do this... I'm sorry... I suck sooo much... Time to die. But... That might have been a pair of shorts made from an easily-bleachable fabric... No, no, that would just be making up excuses. If I'm reborn, I'd want to be drool... A very... dribbly drool.
Chapter 462 (Page 66)
D: Odacchi. I love your manga. I have a question. What happens if Chopper eats four Rumble Balls? I've always wondered about that. Draw a picture, please. Nickname: Hama-chan
O: Very good, sir. →
When he eats three, his Devil Fruit Powers go wild, but if he eats FOUR Rumble Balls, the author goes wild.
Chopper: It's on me, I insist (catchphrase)
D: Hello, Oda-sensei!! This is the first time I've ever sent you a letter! On p.161 of Volume 46, the chapter titled "Moria," there is a zombie with the number 767. And yet, on p.173 of the chapter titled "The Four Spooks of Thriller Bark," the zombie in Hogback's lab says 741. Why is that? Did you... MAKE A MISTAKE?! Give me a serious answer!! P.N. Snowdrop from the Drum Kingdom
O: You really pay attention to detail! So what you're asking is, why is the zombie just being created given a lower number? As a matter of fact, it makes perfect sense. This is because zombies get purified all the time, leaving empty numbers behind. Since zombies are constantly being lost when their shadow owners die, intruders purify them with salt, or Moria simply uses them like disposable pawns, the newer zombies must be created to fill those holes in the numbering order. So it is quite often that zombies with lower numbers are created. You also might be interested, though it's of no real consequence, to learn these specific number ranges.
• Wild Zombies: 0-199
• Surprise Zombies: 200-399
• Soldier Zombies: 400-799
• General Zombies: 800-899
• Special Zombie: 900
The zombie army is maintained by filling in the empty ranks according to this chart.
Chapter 464 (Page 106)
O: It's game time! Answer's at the bottom, so no peeking!! Thank you, P.N. Nyaokichi-san!! Now find the two keys!!
Look for the secret keys! The clues are these three photos. Also, it looks like the weapon storeroom key from Dr. Kureha's castle is here, too!! Can you tell which one it is?!
To be included at a later time
Nami: Where should I hide these once you've found them?
Answers:-~[[BR]] ~-Secret Key -> D-4
Storeroom Key -> C-8
Chapter 465 (Page 126)
D: Sensei! When Absalom says "Being mean to Kumacy must fill you with ecstasy. Ecsmacy?" and "So cruel to Hogback. Cruelback." Is that just because he likes bad jokes?
O: YES. EVEN HIS SENSE OF HUMOR IS INVISIBLE!!
D: Hello, Odacchi. I'm a high school senior re-reading Volume 47. About Ab-sama's wild and cute mouthy mouth, did that belong to the lion Nami saw from the carriage in Volume 46?! Did they switch faces?! Like plastic surgery?! I guess that chin of his must have had some mental complex that kept him from getting married! Let me hear the truth from YOUR mouth, now. P.N. Failing Exam Student
O: I see, so you noticed that... I'm afraid I will keep my mouth shut, however. Yes, it is true that that lion's muzzle was transplanted to Absalom's face by Hogback. However, there's no proof that the human mouth the lion has originally came from Absalom. There might be a different zombie with the same scars. I'm keeping my mouth shut, for the few Absalom fans out there.
D: Greetings, Odacchi-sama. In one of the volumes (I forget which one), the topic of voice actors came up, and you said you'd make a list. So make that list already!! P.N. Voice
O: Yes. Voice-kun here wants to be an actor. I remember my promise. I said that I'd introduce the voice actors to you. However, in the various OP-related publications that are out, we HAVE done just that. I thought it might be redundant to do it again here, but I have a good idea! How about a special SBS-only Let's Ask the Voice Actors section?! I don't have their permission, of course. But I think it might work out! If not, I'll answer for them. First entry is the Straw Hat Pirates' actors. Write up your message or questions and address them to the person you want to ask, then send it to the SBS Usopp Gallery address listed in this book. They're good, funny people, so you can ask anything.
Chapter 466 (Page 146)
- Luffy: Mayumi Tanaka
Zoro: Kazuya Nakai
Nami: Akemi Okamura
Usopp: Kappei Yamaguchi
Sanji: Hiroaki Hirata
Chopper: Ikue Otani
Robin: Yuriko Yamaguchi
Franky: Kazuki Yao
Chapter 467 (Page 166)
D: Mr. 4's gun "Lassoo" had the "Inu Inu Fruit, Model Dachshund." CP9's Jabura had the "Inu Inu Fruit, Model Wolf." So the Devil Fruits don't have the same type twice, but they CAN have different models? P.N. Hito Hito Fruit, Model Beautiful Girl ❤
O: In the case of Zoan-types, a different "model" is basically a different fruit. Just like those Inu Inu Fruit examples, there's also the Ushi Ushi Fruit Model Bison (Dalton) and Model Giraffe (Kaku). Just think of them as entirely different fruits.
D: Excuse me!! May I pose a serious question to the typically-vulgar SBS?? In Volume 46, Usopp said that the same power doesn't exist twice. But this doesn't make sense with what you said in the Volume 45 SBS... If the Gomu Gomu Fruit was in a book of fruits, then Luffy HAD to have eaten at least the SECOND known example of the fruit! Now, most beautiful and intelligent Ei-chan, explain it all! ✩ P.N. Takafi
O: Very sharp of you. But I'm cool. I haven't made any mistakes. As a hint, let me rephrase what Usopp is saying. "The same powers don't exist twice AT THE SAME TIME." How's that? For more detail, you'll just have to wait for a certain professor to make his appearance in the story, and explain exactly what the Devil Fruits REALLY are... Eventually.
D: Oda-sensei, greetings!! I've made a sudden discovery! When you take off the dust cover of Volume 46, the person popping out of the snake looks an awful lot like the sketch of the "Unforgivable Mask" character from Color Walk 2! Just who is he, anyway? Tell me!! by Hiromu
O: Whoa!! You've gone too far! You're in danger!! They'll come for your life!! Okay, look, this is all I'm gonna say. He's Pandaman's rival!! He's been hired by Tomato Gang!! Later!! See you next volume!!
Chapter 468 (Page 186)
