Quick Post: Nico Robin

For a manga that emphasizes manliness so vehemently, One Piece sure does have some incredible women. Nico Robin is one of my favorite animated women of all time; intelligent, soft-spoken, and strong without acting like she has something to prove, Robin is a great example of a competent and capable and likeable female character.

For those who don't read One Piece, Robin's powers involve "sprouting" multiple copies of her own limbs off of various surfaces. Multiple copies of her hands, eyes, ears and feet can pop up anywhere she needs them.

In chapter 635, Robin puts her feet in center stage by making an enormous copy of them, then using them to literally stomp an enemy army down. This is one of those rare combat situations where tickling in unison would be the ideal counterattack.

Hopefully I'll be able to post some very high quality versions in the future. I can't wait to see this animated.
