Posted on

The creator of One Piece, Eiichiro Oda, revealed in a special Q&A column called SBS in the manga that although the anime and characters were created by Japanese creators and animators and the characters speak Japanese, not all of them are of Japanese nationality. In fact, only one of the Straw Hat Pirates is actually Japanese. Let’s take a look at the nationalities of the rest of the crew!

1. Monkey D. Luffy – Brazil

The rubber man himself, Monkey D. Luffy, is actually from Brazil according to Oda.

2. Roronoa Zoro – Japan

Zoro, the skilled swordsman and only member of the Straw Hat Pirates from Japan, makes perfect sense given his status as a samurai.

3. Nami – Sweden

With her orange hair, Oda said it would be fitting to say that Nami is from Sweden.

4. Usopp – Africa

Based on the color of his skin and his physique, it’s not surprising that Usopp is from Africa.

5. Vinsmoke Sanji – France

Who would have thought that Sanji, with his suave personality and cooking skills, is actually from France?

7. Nico Robin – Russia

One of the powerful female members of the crew, Robin is actually from Russia.

8. Cutty ‘Franky’ Flam – United States

As evident by his name, Franky is definitely not from Japan. He hails from the USA.

9. Brook – Austria

Despite his skeletal appearance, Oda revealed that Brook’s nationality is from Austria.

It’s interesting to note that only one member of the Straw Hat Pirates is actually from Japan. The nationalities of the other members are a mix of different countries from around the world. One Piece continues to be a beloved anime and manga series with a rich and diverse cast of characters.
