Slam Dunk Inspired One Piece Prequel Monsters | The Spaghetti Code

It seems that classics never die and serve as inspiration for others, as was the case with Takehiko Inoue’s Slam Dunk, which was a big hit for all basketball fans and those who don’t know about this sport, but left a big mark on someone else.

That’s right, according to the curiosity of user X, Sandman_AP, this work by Inoue-san served as an inspiration, no less than Eiichiro Oda, for the creation of Monsters, the prequel to One Piece.

Everything has an origin, and before Slam Dunk was published, Inoue-san worked on a short sketch called Kaede Purple, in which Kaede Rukawa was the main character, but over time she made him a supporting character in the main story.

This led to Eiichiro Oda being able to create monsters, and how was that possible?

This all ties into the fact that the main character of Monsters is Ryuma, Zoro’s ancestor, and, well, the green-haired boy was supposed to be the main character of One Piece, but once its serialization began, it turned out that he went on to be a supporting character, much like what happened to Rukawa in Slam Dunk.

While both Zoro and Rukawa are characters who managed to gain relevance at some point in their stories, they were overshadowed by their respective protagonists, but they certainly left a large and important mark.

Thus, Eiichiro Oda was able to form what we know as Monsters, which already has an anime series on the Netflix platform and which is a great success.
