One Piece's Sanji's Full Name Revealed!

posted on by Eric Stimson

Sanji, the suave, fleet-footed chef of the One Piece pirate crew, has long remained cloaked in mystery... until now. The current chapter in the One Piece manga, released on January 18, suggests some tantalizing facts about Sanji's past.

The panel says "The groom will be... Sanji, third son of the Vinsmoke family. The bride will be... Purin, thirty-fifth daughter of the Charlotte family!!!" Looks like this is news to Sanji. (Note that san is Japanese for "three.")

Sanji has returned to One Piece after a long absence, and Eiichiro Oda, the manga's creator, says that this year he will delve more into Sanji's back story. Readers curious about Sanji's connection with the Charlottes, and whether Purin will turn out to be more appealing than Big Mom, will have to stay tuned.
