There are still so many characters from the world of ONE PIECE that we don't know. Some have been spotted in the shadows even though they weren't officially presented, while others are just vague shadows that nobody knows if they exist. There Luffy's mother is one of those shadows, never seen or heard of in the story of Eiichiro Oda.

There are not only fans from all over the world who want to get to know the mother of the protagonist of ONE PIECE, but also the voice actress who gives the boy in the straw hat her voice. Mayumi Tanaka, historical interpreter of the character, was interested in Luffy's mother and asked the author Eiichiro Oda privately when he would appear.

This is a revelation from Tanaka in a recent interview Answer could be "never". In fact, the ONE PIECE mangaka replied that this pirate adventure is centered on Luffy, who has already left his mother's arms and the journey is entirely focused on the young man. Mama is not part of it.

We will therefore be able to learn more about Monkey D. Dragon in future sagas, but not about Luffy's mother, who so far has only emerged through unofficial fan art. Meanwhile, the protagonist's crew is preparing for the battle with the emperors in ONE PIECE 989.
