One Piece Author Slandered On Twitter After Revealing Bonney’s True Age

This is kinda complicated, in my opinion, but it seems for now, Oda isn’t beating the “pedophile” allegations.

Anime Explained

One Piece is hailed by many as one of the finest stories of modern times, and yet, even it isn’t without its fair share of criticism. But this time, it’s much more serious the “Is Yamato male or female?” debates that has been going on recently.

Series creator Eiichiro Oda is accused of sexualizing a minor once again as he revealed the TRUE AGE of Jewelry Bonney, also known as the “Big Eater” to be actually 12 years!

When Bonney was first introduced in the story, she was supposed to be about 22 years old. This age was discussed in Eichiiro Oda’s SBS segment in the manga. After a two-year gap, her estimated age was raised to 24.

However, One Piece chapter 1098 changed all that by providing additional information on Ginny, Kuma, and Bonney through Bonney’s backstory. Bonney is revealed to be Ginny’s offspring from an arranged marriage to a Celestial Dragon. Kuma adopted Bonney as his own after Ginny passed away from a rare sickness.

Apparently, Bonney has the ability to change the aging process of objects or people, including herself, through her Devil Fruit, the Toshi Toshi no Mi (Age-Age Fruit).

Oda foreshadowed her TRUE FORM when she saved Zoro in an earlier chapter.

However, this revelation got Oda under the radar once again, as he’s accused of sexualizing a 12-year-old in her old form. This is kinda complicated, in my opinion, but it seems for now, Oda isn’t beating the “pedophile” allegations. And the fact that he once worked as an assistant to the infamous mangaka of Rurouni Kenshin, Nobuhiro Watsuki, doesn’t make matters any better.
