Sora, Warrior of the Sea is a popular comic strip published in the World Economic Journal.[1]

PremiseEdit

The comic tells the story of the fictional Marine hero Sora, who can walk on water, and his battles against the evil armies of Germa 66. In these battles, Sora is assisted by a transforming robot and his pet seagull.[1]

According to Vito, Sora's battles are based on the exploits of real Marine heroes, to serve as propaganda to increase support for the Marine cause.[1] By contrast, Vinsmoke Yonji reveals that Germa 66 was chosen as the model for the comic's villain group because the reputation of its commanders was so closely associated with evil.[2] This has led to a widespread (and mistaken) belief that Germa 66 is a mythical organization.[3]

ReadershipEdit

The Firetank Pirates' advisor, Vito, is known to be a huge fan of the comic strip, having read it since he was a child. He also explained that the comic has a wide readership, being popular across the world.[4]

It is possible that Nami has also read (or at least encountered) the comic, as she recognized the Germa 66 name but attributed it to a "mythical evil army" that did not really exist. For this reason, she was highly skeptical, and ultimately shocked, to learn that Sanji was intimately connected to the comic's antagonists.[5]

TriviaEdit

  • In Vito's thoughts about the comic, the Germa 66 villains that can be seen facing Sora bear a resemblance to members of the Vinsmoke Family:
    • The agents wearing cloaks bearing the numbers "1" and "2" are possible references to Vinsmoke Ichiji and Vinsmoke Niji, respectively.
    • The cloaked, helmeted figure towering over the agents is a possible reference to Vinsmoke Judge.
  • The symbol on Sora's cape appears to be a combination of the Marines' and the World Government's symbols.
