Thread: The Secret of ONE PIECE: ひとつなぎの大秘宝

    Default The Secret of ONE PIECE: ひとつなぎの大秘宝

    English-speaking fans may not realize that sometimes, Oda has characters in the know refer to One Piece as "ひとつなぎの大秘宝" while having the furigana for “One Piece” written above.

    For example, Whitebeard uses it when referring to One Piece in his final words.

    This, in essence, gives the phrase “One Piece” multiple meanings in Japanese. Moreover, "ひとつなぎの大秘宝" can be translated a few different ways and may be the key to understanding what One Piece is.

    "ひとつなぎの大秘宝" - “One Incredible Hidden Treasure”

    "ひとつなぎの大秘宝" - “The Incredible Hidden Treasure that Connects People”

    "ひとつなぎの大秘宝" - “The Human Jumpsuit Hidden Treasure”

    "ひとつなぎの大秘宝" - “The Hidden Treasure of One Calm Sea”

    Speculate away, but this context should be helpful to a lot of you theorists out there.

    Edit: It may also be worth digging into homophones like “Won Peace.”

    I like the potential of "ひとつなぎの大秘宝" - “The Human Jumpsuit Hidden Treasure”.

    Well a Jumpsuit is a One Piece garment of clothing, so we solved it! One Piece is a Jumpsuit and a Jumpsuit is a One Piece.

    It'll be interesting to see what it turns out to be. I like that it has multiple interpretations but it should be something that can unite people (something the world government doesn't seem interested in happening anytime soon).
