Thread: Nami > Robin

  1. #1

    Nami > Robin

    Ever since I started One Piece, I have always thought Robin>Nami though I liked both.

    At the start of the timeskip I didn't like Nami much anymore.

    Lately however, I have started to like Nami more than Robin.

    Does my change in preference mean anything?

    Ever since the timeskip started Robin has been reduced to just giving exposition dumps on what the poneglyphs are saying, a glorified background character, even being denied the fight with Gladius that got set up on Dressrosa; which would have been her first notable 1v1 battle since Yama on Skypeia.

    Whole Cake Island is focusing on the Strawhats that missed out on Dressrosa, so now Nami has gotten a bit of spotlight while Robin is out of the picture entirely. That's not to say Nami has been killing it with a ton of notable moments, but she's felt like more of a presence to me than Robin at least.

    Robin is the better character but Nami has more notable screentime post-skip yes. That probably change with Wano though since i probably wouldn't say that if this were before WCI.

    Nami annoys me. Robin is just there, so I guess Robin is better. I just hate that Robin is so overpowered.

    I'd say without their captains the Whitebeards would be slightly stronger than the Red-Hairs and with their captains they'd be significantly stronger.

    It's pretty obvious no Emperor was a real threat to Whitebeard. He just had too much power and influence.

    Raigou apparently can't even destroy an island, which Whitebeard can do easily.

    Obviously it was because of Whitebeard, but the crew even without the captain is still highly exceptional. If you take away the captains, the Whitebeard's would beat any Emperor crew decisively.

    Thing is I have rewatched the anime recently and I find Nami overall more appealing than Robin when before it was the other way around so it's not just because we see more of Nami and haven't seen Robin in a while. I especially like Nami's character in this arc.

    I'd say Robin's redesign hurt her appeal as well. Pre-Skip Robin had more flavor, now she looks like Hancock's identical twin.

    Robin is better but she has been reduced to a fanservice character. As irrelevant as Chopper....

    She used to be tanner too.

    Of course they do, they pick up shit like psychology, philosophy and art, because they can't finish any decent major. They can't contribute to society in any way. Freeloaders, nothing else.

    That CUNT SpiRo can get the fuck out. The act of watching graphic stuff like that is not in and of itself bad. Ive always had a fascination with snuff and disturbing films. If youre going to argue that im not a good person or whatever because of that, then i guess every single person who likes action movies, manga, sports or anything that contains physical combat and violence must also be the same. There is a distinction between having an INTEREST in something and ADVOCATING or APPROVING of it.

    No swordsmen can beat Doffy. The guy can stitch his internal organs after taking a Counter Shock hit, sword wounds are a piece of cake for him. Vista's Mihawk level Haki and base stats would probably push Doffy to high-difficulty though.

    No swordsmen can beat Doffy with a sword. Plain and simple. It's same like beating Buggy with a sword or Jozu with a sword. It's impossible, use your brain.

    Akainu, by some luck, didn't fall into the sea, he probably caught a piece of ground and cling onto it until he regained his consciousness.

    Also we know that BM already defeated Kaido at least once or even twice.
    DreX the "Intelligent" earned a special spot for all his remarkable claims

    October 6, 2007: Chapter 473: Kuma appears and obviously uses his DF ability.
    September 8, 2008: Chapter 513: Sentoumaru explains Kuma's ability.
    April 24, 2017: DreX has a THEORY how "Repelling gotta be a part of Kuma's Devil Fruit ability"
    DreX the Asswiper. Is a pro who wipes asses with a Don!

    okey.
    So, Shanks is the protege of the PK? and Mihawk is the protege of the Apes king ? both of them were on the same ship idiot, not even a hint on who Roger preferred from the both in the manga, and when did i fucking say that Shanks has no potential, didn't even say that he falls to Mihawk in that aspect, i'm merely saying that we can say who.

    Monkey, Mihawk said that he ain't fighting Shanks in that specific meeting of their, and it was in a sarcastic way of denying because he didn't come for fighting unlike usual, he came for showing him Luffy's poster.

    Nami has been the main fanservice chick since the timeskip.

    They are both fanservice. Nami has actually done more than Robin. At least she was necessary against Cracker. Robin was relegated to sidelines even against the seats.

    The problem is not that she is a Boa Hancock twin, is that her main clothes look like a fucking hipster gypsy... Her cowboy style was way way better

    robin will probably get some more love in the future since she's going to be the target of kidnapping like the dukes pointed out

    really can't complain about her design, i personally like it

    Everyone is basically telling me I like Nami more because Robin became boring.

    She is not though, her character is no different personality and screentime wise as she was Thriller Bark and Sabaody.

    The point of this thread was really me asking if my change in preference has to do with my own change as a person compared to how I was back when I got into One Piece, of course you could never know better than me but I was hoping to get some insight into what changes preference in someone other than outside factors.

    Too deep for this thread I know, 2008 before I started getting into One Piece Zoro was my favorite character, since I've gotten into it though Luffy has become my favorite character of all time in any series.

    So the above is where I hoped the discussion would go.

    Robin doesn't really have "main clothes" like some other characters, she switches things up every arc. The blue jacket + beach towel was a one time thing and she's mostly been wearing dresses since. Same with the cowboy getup pre-skip, she started out in that for Alabasta then moved on to casual clothes then to leather and so on. Nami is somewhat similar though she was stuck in a bikini top + jeans phase for a bit.
