My Inspiration WR#10

I don’t necessarily have a someone who inspires me but since we can look from anywhere I decided to choose someone choose one who came close. I chose a character from a japanese manga/anime that I watched called One Piece.


That is Monkey D. Luffy. He is around the age of 16-18 and from the wanted posted you may or may not tell that he is a wanted pirate but for all the wrong reasons. In the world of One Piece pirates exist who venture for gold, booze and of course women. At a young age of maybe 10 Luffy became friends with a powerful pirate named Shanks and made a promise that he would become the greatest pirate. He also ate a Devils Fruit. They are fruit that give you powers of the devil. The fruit Luffy ate called the Gomu Gomu fruit which means rubber. So as you guessed he’s a rubber boy. The down side to these devil fruits is that you cannot swim a big set back for a pirate. His dream is to find the treasure One Piece. A treasure hidden away by Gold D. Roger in his final words before execution.

Now onto the part where he some how inspires me. Luffy is a carefree optimistic teen. He doesn’t let anything stop him from becoming the greatest. From his personality some think he is not considerate of others but he is. He cares for the people he calls his family. You ask for help he will be there to help you all you have to do is ask. Luffy also has a right of justice. He helps those who he thinks are living a unfair life or is being tormented by a pirate. He fights for the things he believes and does not budge an inch no matter how many times people try to persuade him. Being captain of his ship he isn’t the most intelligent haha. Everybody in his crew knows this but they still follow him and call him captain. I think that shows a lot about him. For someone who isn’t that intelligent, does everything head on, and is still able to have a crew makes him a born leader. There is never a dull moment with Luffy and I love it.

With this portrait Luffy is worth 300,000,000 Beli(there currency) from my description it is hard to believe he has done enough damage to be worth so much. The fact that he is smiling in a wanted post is also a bit humorous. Being worth that much is a very big deal but he doesn’t seem to care. He actually wants everyone know he exists and will be the one to find the treasure One Piece.
