Read One Piece 954 Updates: What makes one piece outstanding aside from its story is the fact that the author keeps bombarding us with infinite amount of characters with amazing backstory. I really do hope oda can make each of this character shine in their own ways in battle. So much characters, oniwabansho, red scabbards, yakuza bosses, mimawarigumi, flying headliners I hope they dont end up getting knockout. Mean while, just as I thought we wont be seeing a japanese mystic fox cuz devon already has it, yet oda gave us another one with quite similar ability, im sure they differ in a way though. Lastly, its time to ride the enma and oden hype train. I was really touched by how kawamatsu and onimaru saved each other from death, and I hope that they can rekindle that bond soon. Oden's sword enma should be exciting to see, but I don't think zoro will leave wano without shusui. As for onimaru's ability, my personal theory is that he (the fox) ate the hito hito no mi, model: benkei, a devil fruit based on the warrior monk saito musashibo benkei. It seems more likely than a human eating a fox fruit. But, who knows? Maybe he's based off the kitsune from yokai folklore.

Boa Hancock

"Pirate Empress" Boa Hancock is the captain of the Kuja Pirates and the only female member of the Shichibukai. She is the current empress, known as the "Snake Princess", of Amazon Lily and rules over the Kuja tribe with her two younger Gorgon sisters, Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold. She is the main antagonist of the Amazon Lily Arc. She was first mentioned by the Risky Brothers at the end of the Thriller Bark Arc when comparing her legendary beauty to the beauty of mermaids.



Trivia
-  Given that all members of the Kuja tribe are named after flowers, it is possible that her first name comes from the scientific name for the snowberry, a plant known for its showy flowers, symphoricarpos chenaultii hancock. Her family name, Boa, comes from the boa, a group of constricting snakes.
-  She is the only Shichibukai to not be voted in the 4th Japanese Fan Poll. This is due to her character not being introduced at the time.
-   In the 5th Japanese Fan Polls, Hancock ranked as the tenth most popular character in One Piece making her the second most popular Shichibukai (aside from Trafalgar D. Water Law), the second most popular female character (Nami being the first), and the fifth most popular "non-Straw Hat" character in the series. She is also the only character on that poll's top 10 list who had made no major appearance in a recent arc.
-   In the 6th Japanese Fan Polls, Hancock ranked as the tenth most popular character again in One Piece making her the second most popular female character (Nami being the first) and the most popular of the Shichibukai and the fifth most popular "non-Straw Hat" character of the series. She again is the only character to maintain in the top 10 list while having no major appearance in a recent arc.


-  Her character has several references to Greek mythology:
-  Her tribe, the Kuja, being a nation of all-female warriors, is heavily based on the Amazons. And her relationship with Luffy starting off with malice but later turning into friendship and later love (on Hancock's half) which is a reversal of the Amazonian queen Hippolyta's relationships with Heracles and (in some versions) Theseus, both of which started off friendly but ended rather adversely.
-  Similarities to Medusa include the ability to turn people into stone (although the methods are very different), the general snake theme, and most obviously, both are one of three Gorgon sisters (though Medusa was the youngest, as opposed to Hancock who is the eldest). In some versions of the myth, she was turned into a monster against her will by Athena; similar to how Hancock was forcefully fed her Devil Fruit by the tenryubito.

-  She is also very similar to Calypso; they both have an island inhabited by only women, they are irresistible to most men, and they are quite shocked that their respective hero (Luffy and Odysseus) can resist their charm and ask for a boat to leave (although Odysseus did take part in lovemaking with Calypso for quite a long while before his departure). The situation involving Luffy being the first one to ever really resist Hancock's charms caused the latter to fall in love with him also mirrors how Odysseus' resistance to Circe's charms eventually caused her to fall hopelessly in love with him too.
-  She is also similar to Penthesilea. They are both empresses of amazon warriors, they were slaves when they were young, and they later escaped with their two sisters. Penthesilea was also a talented archer, which may be a reference to Hancock's usage of her Devil Fruit powers.
-  Her ability to seduce men is similar to the sirens, who would seduce and lure sailors to a watery doom; only Sirens used their voice rather than their physical beauty.
