    Urouge! Reveal yourself as a LuffyXNami shipper and be done with it!

    Personally, I'm all for Luffy+Nami and Tashigi+Zoro, but still...that scene with Kuma meant nothing. No subtle tones of anything except desperation. There was more subtle romancy stuff in the scene where he tells Nami to hold onto him or their trip up Giant Jack together.

    Luffy sometimes backs off protecting Usopp, because he's trying not to damage his pride as a man. As a guy, he can understand not wanting to crush Usopp's ego(this has been mentioned b4 in OP), but as a guy, he also just assumes every women in danger wants/needs to be rescued. Every female strawhat has been the damsel in distress at one time or another and Luffy has stepped into the White Night role.

    It's a joke played up even by ODa or whoever does the character polls that Nami is the strongest strawhat because the Monster trio has all the muscle, but Nami's clearly the one in charge of the them/the crew. She's definitely got Luffy, Sanji, and Zoro wrapped around her finger.
    Err, I didn't mean to imply anything about romance. Oda himself stated there'd be no romance within the crew. If people were making a big deal about that, I wouldn't know since I wasn't active here back then. I don't think of it as a "big deal" myself, but I also don't think that Oda picked her name out of hat for that flashback.

    The only thing I was trying to describe was how Oda uses Nami to symbolize Luffy's protective side. Nami was the only person in the flashback, how else am I supposed to take that other than that she was a symbol for his desire to protect his nakama?

    EDIT: I don't really want to get into the last part here. It's a farfetched theory that appeals to me is all. That's for another thread I think.

    I guess some of the marine ideals rubbed off on him. Heck even way back with the mayor in buggy's arc. He let guys have their shot, but he always take the hit for the ladies.

    Why are you comparing it to cultural engravings and burritos.

    Sorry as much as I prefer Sunny over Merry, Sunny just isn't in the same league in terms of having what it takes to enter a character popularity tournament, yet.
