Nice finding.

 

If you read a few interviews, you will find Oda state that "The Vikings" was an inspiration when he was a child. Actually I think it says it in the first page of the first volume of the Manga

 

@ giantbiceps Thanks

 

@ Nyanko It does? I always thought he meant vikings in general. I didn't know about that movie before. :P

 

Dragonball, this: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=db7pQZdm4VU and subsequently vikings. Vicky the Viking is a show he used to watch as a kid. Source: http://www.thegrandl.../odaaeraint.htm

 

Vikings were also considered "pirates", warriors of the sea that plundered people, so he was inspired to draw pirates. The giants of Elbaf are oversized vikings so when or if the Strawhats reach Elbaf it will pretty interesting. 

 

Edit: That movie could be a source as well, he probably did some research on Vikings and looked for sources of inspiration before doing his thing. A movie called "The Vikings" seems perfect for inspiration. 

 

Ah yeah thats it. Its a bit hard when the source material is 9000km away

You know on the path we've been traveling up until now... Saying a thing like that would just get you laughed at. Although... I slaughtered anyone and everyone who had the nerve to laugh at me...!! But from here on out... we're gonna be sailing the sea where anyone without the nerve to say something like that is as good as dead...!! Let's meet again, in the New World!!

That's actually news to me. 

Wouldn't have realized Jimbei was actually Ace in a millions year. I just want to know what's the argument behind it.

no excuse not to read.

Since he/she wasn't here when either of those chapters came out, he's likely not to have read the threads back then. And that's just about as valid an excuse as it gets. You may want to be a bit more forgiving. =)

To be fair that's not foreshadowing. 

In fact that's the opposite of foreshadowing.

It's cheap, but at the same time is funny... So I'm having a bit of breakdown now.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Something just came to me. Every time people equaled Kidd as Shiki's counter part I was just confused and thought that it was just some heavy Law wank. 

But I'm starting to think that they just came to the conclusion because of how gravity and magnetism works....

Taken from MS comment section:

 

1) When Rayleigh blocks Kizaru on the archipelago, it is a direct reference to a scientific term known as Rayleigh scattering.

 

2) Another more recent scientific reference is when donquixote doflamingo blocks Fujitora's meteors, it refers to The ESA's preliminary design of a space mission named Don Quijote, that, if flown, would be the first intentional asteroid deflection mission ever designed.

 

3) Jango = Michael Jackson

 

4) Enel=Eminem

 

5) The Flying Dutchman, well I think you all know it by now.

Edward Newgate(Whitebeard), Marshal D Teach(Blackbeard. > Edward Teach was the real blackbeard.

Eustass 'Captain' Kidd - William 'Captain' Kidd 
X. Drake - Sir Francis Drake 
Jewelry Bonney - Anne Bonney 
Basil Hawkins - John Hawkins 
Bellamy - Samuel Bellamy 
Zoro - François l'Olonnais

 

6) Cavendish and Hakuba = Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

 

7) Going Merry had a viking funeral and giants in One Piece are visually connected to Nordic myth/history.

The idea of Shichibukai is the basic concept of privateers.
Skypiea has a Native American motif, right down to the land disputes.

 

8) 

1. "World Government" is believed to be USA's ultimate goal: to be the very authority that represents the whole world. 

2. The "freedom" theme that you feel in every arc, every chapter of One Piece.
Take (1) and (2) into consideration. What conclusion do you arrive ?

I had to laugh at Enel = Eminem. Not in a bad or condescending way. It's just funny as Eminem is one of my favorite rappers

I agreed all the way through (though only the Don Quixote thing was new to me, and that's awesome!!), except for the very last thing. The World Government is mainly (and clearly) a reference to the United Nations - the very top, the Gorosei, is a reference to the five permanent members of the UN Security Council. (One of them even looks like Gorbachev.) It's also heavily influenced by the Catholic Church.

I've never liked that theory. One of the Gorosei is, without a doubt, modelled after Gandhi, which simply breaks the Security Council Theory.
