Monkey D is luffy asexual

One Piece artist reveals why we will probably never see Luffy's mother

The mother of One Piece hero Luffy does not play a role in either the manga or the anime and Eiichiro Oda also explains why that is so.

One Piece has the wildest skills and craziest characters. Only their mothers play almost no role at all. At least when it comes to protagonists like Monkey D. Luffy, the mothers are virtually logged off and that should stay that way. The inventor and draftsman Eiichiro Oda has already explained why the mother of most of the characters simply does not appear.

One Piece mystery about Luffy's mother remains unexplained

What's the matter? Monkey D. Luffy must actually have a mother. But we simply don't know what it's all about. At least a little is known about Luffy's father, but things are different with his mother.

In One Piece, most of the mothers shine through their absence or have since died. Neither Zorro nor Luffy nor Frankie talk about their mothers. Ace, Brook, Robin, and Sanji's mothers all died.

That is probably on purpose: Eiichiro Oda is said to have made a conscious decision. At least the original spokeswoman for the anime Luffy explains that she has already spoken to One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda about this topic and he is not interested in this topic.

Instead, the story of Luffy purposely only begins after he has left his parents and home behind. As reported by Twitter user Soulstorm, the illustrator is said to have said the following:

"Luffy's adventure began when he left his mother's arms. I want to tell the story of this young man, so his mother is not part of it."

Apparently he doesn't seem to care much. It is possible that Eiichiro Oda simply does not want to devote himself to this topic and relationships with mothers in general. A little while ago he answered fan questions to the effect that "'Mother' the opposite of 'adventure'" be (via: Comicbook).

Can you do anything with the reasoning behind the One Piece inventor? Do you wish that mothers would play a bigger role?
