“Shanks isn’t a perfect guy. The most important scene in Chapter 1 is where Shanks is shocked when Luffy is kidnapped. Anyone can draw a cool, handsome character, but Beckman smiles and supports him. Thanks to their relationship Pirates of the Red can exist.

So basically the sensei is specifying this without the support of his companions, especially that of Beckman, not even the emperor would have been like that. A simple piece of information, but one that confirms that Shank’s position is also due to his teammates. And you instead, what do you think of Oda’s take on the famous character?
