Eiichiro Oda puts to bed the speculations of fans about Sanji’s changing eyes by providing a definitive answer to one of the manga’s most intriguing mysteries.
Fans are now aware of the reason Sanji’s famously curly eyebrows have been shifting in recent One Piece chapters.
A report by Anime Dork has revealed the fact that One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda has spoken up about the brow changes made by the Straw Hat cook. This proves that the character’s arc was deliberate. Sanji’s right eyebrow had been spiraling towards the end of the show. But chapter 1031 witnessed its shift towards the inside like the Germa66 brothers. Sanji’s eyebrows reverted to their normal position in chapter 1044. This was to the annoyance of some of the readers. But Oda explained that the swirl was a reflection of Sanji’s transformation which occurred in the course of his fight against Queen. The process triggers the awakening of his abilities as a superhuman.

The audience learns the story of Sanji was born into the Vinsmoke Judge family. His father conducted experiments on his children to transform them into super-soldiers. Both Sanji as well as One Piece fans believed that Sanji did not possess the powers he had acquired through transplantation as well as the emotional numbness that came with the same. But, Sanji was able to gain those powers in his fight with Queen who was the Beast Pirate’s main character in the way shown in the animation. Sanji’s character changed too as he became more brutal and colder than his brothers. It was apparent during Sanji’s battle with S-Shark during the ongoing Egghead Island anime arc.
Sanji could be able to provide more
Sanji’s eyebrows changed with his personality while they were engaged in battle with his fellow fighters, the Jimbe Seraphim. This is an omen of Oda’s explanation of the design modifications. Since Luffy’s appearance alters when he utilizes Gear powers to enhance his appearance Sanji’s eyebrow could be a sign that Luffy the Straw Hat chef is using his Germa 66 abilities. Oda advised readers to keep an eye on Sanji’s story even though there’s changed a lot in Sanji’s personality. This indicates that there is more to be learned about the character before the story ends.
