I try to keep respectful of other people’s opinions, but one take I’ve seen does bother me, and it’s that Boa Hancock is a “sexual predator” and unsympathetic because of her “arrogance and cruelty”. Before anyone gets up in arms because of me, let it be said that Boa is a fictional character and at the end of the day characters in fiction frequently do things that would be unacceptable irl, but people laugh at them anyway.
Hancock’s attraction to Luffy is never played seriously, and it consists of her acting like a schoolgirl experiencing her first crush, which makes sense given that she actually likely has no idea about how romantic relationships. She actually thinks Luffy hugging her is marriage, that’s Shirahoshi levels of innocent.
This is why it feels “off” to call her a “predator”, because her idea of a relationship is so childlike, she’s not trying to take advantage of Luffy or anything.
Copypasting the specific claim here:
“ Notice all the major movie villains personalities? Their obsession with strength & getting away with whatever they want because of it? Boa’s literally the same character type, just obsessed with her own beauty & ability to exploit people for her own gain. “
Saying that Hancock is “obsessed” with her own beauty and ability to exploit people is only a small part of the truth, and it does her character no justice in my opinion.
Hancock was a literal slave, she and her sisters spent years living in terror and hopelessness as children. Her culture values strength, and by their standard during her time as a slave she was anything but strong. She acts the way she does because she doesn’t want to seem weak or be ostracized by her own people.
And despite declaring that anyone would forgive her no matter what she does, Hancock doesn’t even actually believe this. She still lives in constant anxiety over someone discovering her secret.
EDIT: I remember the statement “trauma isnt an excuse for bad behavior” being said in regards to Hancock, and to that my reply is that it might not, but it makes some things more understandable. THere’s a reason people generally hate Spandam, Wapol and certain other characters more, and that’s because they dont have sad backstories to make people more sympathetic to their pain.

Age: 20 (Post Timeskip)
Epithet: “Dancing Fiend”
Currently a member of the Strawhats and in a relationship with Zoro
Her mother was a pirate and her father was a Marine. They were murdered ten years after they had her. She managed to escape and was later raised by a member of her mother’s crew.
She uses a form of martial arts that resembles dancing called Akuma Uta. In order to learn Akuma Uta Emiko had to train her body to be flexible and agile.
Interrupting Zoro with The Baby has become a Thing and the rubberband boys find it hilarious.
Oops this took longer than intended. Tbh I should have just colored it given how much grayscale coloring I did. I never claimed to be good at backgrounds and the crow’s nest is a special challenge.
ace’s death may have been painful as all hell, but at least he had a satisfying character arc, and his death actually made sense thematically speaking, which is more than you can say for some characters
in other news i got into one piece
