Many love shipping and that is perfectly fine. However, I’ve never had any interest in shipping in my life and I always prefered to look at things for what the author really wants to display. I often don’t like romances because they’re “cute”, but how they can cleverly tie within the narrative. This is a canonical take on what One Piece has to offer in terms of love and what are my opinions and speculations on it:
However keep in mind: I AM NOT A SHIPPER and I have no personal interest in shipping. I respect whoever wants to ship but it is not something I like myself. The following is completely unbiased and seen from a more objective and literary-narrative point of view.
Please do not post any comments saying “ONE PIECE DOES NOT HAVE LOVE IN IT” because this article is not interested in tackling that. Also DO NOT START ANY SHIPPING WARS, this is for canonical unbiased reasons only.
I am not trying to sink any ships, and I’m sorry if this ideas contradict your ship, but please keep this shipless.
This is also just my own point of view and not necessarely that of Oda.
Just don’t take these as personal shippings or personal preference, just what the most probable story outcome might be. In other words, just imagine this as a glorified theory.
Please be respectful in anything you discuss!
Take care! ^^
