“There are a lot of flashback scenes in One Piece, but that’s because there is a special feeling I want to convey through them. I’d like to think that by showing you the characters when they were children, they could become like your childhood friends. […] As you watch over their growth like this, I feel that a deep bond has been formed between all of you and Luffy and his friends.” - Oda Eiichiro

I have been like this my entire life. People gush to me about how attractive someone is and I’m just like “?????”
