Which Is Older One Piece Or Naruto

Two of the biggest titles to have ever been published in Weekly Shonen Jump are One Piece and Naruto. Few other titles have remained popular over a decade, let alone maintained momentum for so long. The two series are primarily the visions of two creators: Eiichiro Oda and Masashi Kishimoto, respectfully. While the fandoms had competed for the Shonen Jump's top spot, the creators shared a friendly rivalry that has continued even after Naruto's conclusion. However, like most great rivalries -- including the ones that wound up in the pages of both shnen manga -- the rivalry helped push Oda and Kishimoto to create iconic, unique franchises that could stand the test of time. The rivalry, it turns out, shaped the series in ways you probably didn't expect. Naruto first appeared in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, two years after One Piece started. Kishimoto had grown up with Weekly Shonen Jump and felt incredibly satisfied with the fact his comic graced its pages. However, even though Naruto became immediately popular, Kishimoto had a rival for the top spot: Oda. By the time Kishimoto started writing Naruto, Eiichiro Oda had been a Weekly Shonen Jump veteran for a while, having worked as an assistant on another incredibly popular manga: Rurouni Kenshin. By the time Oda started One Piece, he had a decent amount of experience with the pressure and constant work it took to produce a major shonen manga.

Had Oda not changed Sanji, however, Kishimoto would have renamed his titular character.

Oda had plans to introduce a new character to his series around the time Naruto was about to be published: Sanji. However, Sanji was not going to be named Sanji originally. Rather, Oda wanted to name him Naruto. Oda realized that, if he created a character named Naruto the same time a manga called Naruto came out, audiences might be confused, so in order to avoid creating a conflict with Kishimoto's new manga, he changed the name. Had Oda not changed Sanji, however, Kishimoto would have renamed his titular character. Naruto's name is a reference to ramen, so Kishimoto would have found another ramen-centric name. One of the names Kishimoto considered ended up being used as an antagonist for the ninth Naruto film. This was the start of a supportive rivalry that pushed both creators onward throughout the rest of their careers.

It is incredibly difficult to write a manga for Weekly Shonen Jump. Chapters must be prepared every week for publication. It is grueling work, both physically and mentally. For many manga, especially long-lasting ones, it's easy to fall into traps and issues when struggling to come up with material. It's a popular theory that Tite Kubo created characters for Bleach whenever he got writer's block. Oda and Kishimoto often helped one another out creatively, however, spurring one another to continue to create new material in exciting and clever ways. They regularly talk online and traded ideas. Many of the two's ideas ended up spurring on one another's creative ideas. Oda cited Naruto's Camouflage Technique as the inspiration behind his character Absalom's Clear-Clear Fruit. While Luffy's Giant Pistol Attack is logically in-line with Luffy's normal repertoire of attacks, Oda said one of the sources of inspiration for how he drew the attack was Choji from Naruto's Akimichi Clan body expansion techniques. Oda frequently told Kishimoto that he was "copying" from his manga. On the other hand, while Oda drew from Naruto as a source of inspiration, Kishimoto went out of his way to avoid copying One Piece. Whenever Oda did something for One Piece, Kishimoto went out of his way to figure out a creative path to avoid doing the same thing with Naruto. This forced Kishimoto to think creatively for his own work, making him re-examine his creative process and the direction Naruto's plot would take to avoid being predictable to his and Oda's shared audience.

One simple but massive impact of this decision was that of setting. The Straw Hat Crew are always on an adventure, which means every few chapters, they relocated to some new, imaginative area. To set his work apart, Kishimoto deliberately kept his work centered in a singular location. While Naruto and friends go out to the world, they always return back to Konoha Village. While this didn't stop Kishimoto from introducing new locations, it kept the story grounded in familiar territory. In addition, while Luffy gathers his crew over the course of many chapters, Kishimoto from the beginning established the majority of Naruto's supporting crew at once. How Did This Help Both Titles? These differing storytelling techniques and styles helped further distinguish the two titles. Because both ran at the same time, they ran the risk of being too similar to one another. Kishimoto's decision to avoid repeating One Piece's narrative techniques allowed Naruto to escape One Piece's shadow, which proved to be a brilliant decision, as One Piece became one of the biggest titles in Weekly Shonen Jump. If Naruto didn't make itself distinct, it might not have survived as long as it did. On top of that, Naruto helped inspire Oda, which kept fueling his creative fire while crafting his shonen epic. Rivalries often have a way of pushing greats to become even greater. While it's clear that Oda's rivalry with Kishimoto benefited Naruto, it's undeniable that the same rivalry helped Oda push onward with his epic. One Piece is only now nearing its final arc, but it's clear that Oda is in debt to his friend and decade-spanning rival for pushing him to make the show the epic that it is.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.

She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.

When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her.

When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.

When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.
