"Aisa" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.
Aisa is a small Shandia girl. She wears a fur dress and cap. In the manga, her dress and cap are yellow and in the lines are white. The side cloth of her cap is also green. She has short brown hair, which Laki suggests she should grow out to become more ladylike. In the anime, her dress is brown, and her cap is yellow-white, with white cloth on the sides. In the anime she runs around in bare feet, but in the manga, wears sandals and is only barefoot while receiving a haircut from Laki. She also carries a tan satchel, with yellow buckles.
Sometimes, in the manga or anime, she wears a yellow dress with matching sandals, and has her hair accessorized with a hairclip.
Two years later, she has grown significantly. She is much taller and her wings have become slightly larger as well. She is seen wearing a Rubber Band Land cap. She also followed Laki's suggestion as her hair is now longer and in pigtails.
Since she was born, she had the ability known as "Mantra". Because of this, she hates it when people die and will try anything to stop it, even rushing into danger without any plans on what to do. Aisa wants to be a strong fighter like everyone else but was afraid of Wiper, though she warmed up to him eventually. Aisa is a bit of a tomboy as she reacted with disgust when Laki suggested she grow her hair longer because it would look cute on her.
Aisa is good friends with Laki and tends to bring her gifts like bags of dirt, which are considered holy and are called Vearth in the sky. Laki may actually be her cousin since she calls Aisa's mother "aunt" (おばさん obasan?), although the term is often used out of respect for elderly.
Straw Hat PiratesEdit
When Aisa first met the Straw Hats, she thought they were a threat to her people, so she was ready to fight them. During the war against Enel, she warmed up to them, especially Luffy, when he and the others risked their lives to save everyone. After Luffy defeated Enel, Aisa saw them as heroes, just like the rest of the Skypieans and the Shandia, and saw Luffy as a role model and dreamed of becoming a warrior like him someday. After the Straw Hats ran away after a misunderstanding, Aisa was the only one that got to say goodbye to them and she thanked them for saving the island.
Abilities and PowersEdit
- Further information: Haki/Kenbunshoku Haki
Aisa was born with the ability known as Mantra (later revealed to be a kind of Haki), which gave her a sixth sense of the world around her. She can sense when people die as well as the feelings of others. She was able to tell where Enel was, despite him traveling at lightning speed.
Sky Island SagaEdit
After collecting Vearth from the Upper Yard, Aisa returned to Shandia. Kamakiri warned her not to do so anymore, but she replied that he still could not defeat Enel and then ran off. She peered into Wiper's but Braham warned her that Wiper was angry. Hiding behind Laki, Aisa told Wiper that with her Mantra, she felt two voices be silenced, and he took this as a sign to begin their attack. As the warriors headed out, Aisa warned Laki that there were other people, besides Gan Fall, fighting the priests, and Laki asked for Aisa's purse in which to collect more Vearth for the girl.
After hearing so many voices disappear, Aisa tried to make her way back to the Upper Yard. Her Waver broke and she was attacked by sky sharks but was saved by Pagaya and Conis. They brought her to the Going Merry and the Straw Hat Pirates. As Nami tested her repaired Waver, Aisa sat on the deck, listening to her Mantra and crying over the disappearing voices. Later Aisa jumped off the ship, wanting to save her friends, but Nami stopped her and pulled on to the Waver. Nola lifted her head out of the sea and stared at the Going Merry, and when Monkey D. Luffy started hitting her from the inside, the giant python began thrashing about, scaring Nami and Aisa and chasing them into the forest.
The pair are then chased by some Divine Soldiers. When Nami and Aisa reach the Upper Ruins, they are saved by Wiper, Roronoa Zoro, and Gan Fall and Pierre. Gan Fall dodged Wiper's attack and grabbed hold of the two girls, and while carrying them to safety, they are swallowed by Nola.
Within the python, they encountered Luffy. The group was shocked when they realized Luffy was the reason for Nola's erratic behavior, although when Nami took her frustration out on Luffy, the python once again twisted about in pain, sending the group in his stomach tumbling. When Enel appeared and attacked the Upper Ruins, Nola fell down and Nami and the others used that chance to escape. Aisa held on to Luffy who grabbed hold of the Waver's exhaust pipe, causing the pair to be left when it blasted off. Gan Fall sent Pierre back to save Aisa and Luffy. They escaped through the python's mouth when it yawned. Aisa was shocked to see Shandora and rushed over to the fallen Wiper. Nico Robin revealed that Enel planned to destroy all of Skypiea and had taken Nami, and Luffy asked Aisa to lead him to Enel.
When Luffy confronted Enel, Aisa and Pierre stayed hidden and, like Enel, were shocked that Luffy was immune to Enel's lightning. As the Ark Maxim lifted into the air, Aisa rode Pierre up and debated whether or not they would be in the way if they boarded the ship. After Enel encased Luffy's arm in a large ball of gold and kicked him off the ship, Aisa and Pierre tried to save Luffy but Enel called down El Thor on them, sending them crashing down. Aisa landed on Pierre, who was knocked unconscious, and Luffy pulled himself out of the ground and declared that they were heading to the Golden Belfry. Pulling Pierre by his beak, Aisa directed Luffy on how to roll his way toward Giant Jack, but he kept losing control and crashing into the ruins, much to Aisa's anger. When they could not find the others, Aisa pointed out that they had already climbed the beanstalk, so Luffy threw Aisa and Pierre up. Robin caught the two and Aisa was taken aback by Robin's extra arms. Robin asked about Nami's location, and Aisa thought she was still on the ship but could not hear her up there. Suddenly Nami and Usopp showed up riding the Waver, and Aisa hugged Nami. However, the group was shocked when multiple lightning strikes began destroying Skypiea.
Nami told the others to return to the Going Merry and went up the beanstalk after Luffy. Wiper stood up, to Aisa's surprise, and stared at the destruction raining down, while Aisa tried to get him to move away. Wiper climbed the beanstalk to get up to the belfry but was struck by a piece that broke off, and Aisa pleaded for him not to try again. A giant leaf fell down and Aisa pointed out that Nami had written a message for them to cut the beanstalk so that it would fall westward.
After Zoro, Nola, and Usopp failed to fell the beanstalk, Aisa stopped Wiper from going out there, but when Robin revealed that the Straw Hats had met Noland's descendant, Wiper used his Reject Dial to topple the beanstalk. Aisa watched as Wiper stood defiantly against Enel's storm, and Usopp had to hold her from going down to Wiper.
Aisa stared in awe as Luffy defeated Enel and rang the golden bell. She cried when Laki emerged from the forest with her purse. While Tony Tony Chopper tended to the wounded, Aisa asked if he would help Wiper and called him a civet. Later that night Aisa joined in the celebration.
Aisa told the Straw Hats goodbye before they ran away with treasure taken from within Nola. As Laki trimmed Aisa's hair, she commented that Aisa no longer needed to keep her hair short or to carry weapons because of the island's peace. While the Straw Hats descended, the sky islanders rang the bell and cheered the pirates on.
