    Lightbulb Theory on Bartholomew Kuma

    Hello everybody. My name is Kelvin, and I would like to share with you a theory that I've had for a while about Bartholomew Kuma. I've searched around, and I didn't find any similar theories, but I'm sorry if you've posted it before.

    You can find a copy of this theory on my Tumblr.

    I've had this hunch for a long time. It just came to me one day; I don't know if this has been posted before, and I hope no one steals this:


    When English words are introduced to the Japanese language, they can become corrupted when they are shortened or mispronounced.
    For example in English, the acronym VIP has each letter in the acronym pronounced (vee-ai-pee), but in Japanese it is pronounced as it looks: vip (as in it rhymes with the word tip).

    Now on to my theory-

    Consider this about Bartholomew Kuma:
    1. He carries around a book entitled Bible
    2. He pushed the StrawHats to seemingly non-random locations in a deliberate manner.
    No consider these facts:
    1. The word Bible can be read in Japanese as biburu (like bee-boo-roo).
    2. The One Piece term Vivre Card is read in Japanese as ビブルカード or biburukādo
    I believe that the book that Bartholomew Kuma carries around is an index of Vivre Cards of important and significant people. Notice that when he asks people where they would like to go, he is flipping through his Bible. When looking through it, he is confirming a target person's location so he can send the individual in front of him to that location with a certain degree of accuracy.


    That's just my stupid theory. I think it'd be pretty fun if I was right.

    Now that is a theory! That would explain his accuracy.

    Didn't think you guys actually cared about these fun theories, which most of the time could happen. Aohige_AP's translations he say's stuff like this all the time. Since he understands english and Japanese quite well and on top of that is a fan of OP unlike mangastream's turd translator.

    Aohige_AP mentioned this before, year or so ago when the chapter came out, but didn't go further into like you did. Well thought out man. I'll start adding Aohige_AP's little thoughts into the translations now being on how some people are interested on it.

    I didn't before because most people are against Kuma knowing where they went so didn't want to start a annoying argument that had no solid proof on either side.

    Don't count one person as all of us. Notice how I'm always against theories. It's because these new wave of theories that they are just plain stupid. Please bring back the old theories, Like the one above. If Aohige_AP thinks that way, I would love to read them.

    I Love You!

    Haha wonder who that one person is ! Jokes aside.

    Will do man, actaully been thinking why do we have to make a thread for every theory? Think we should just have a theory thread to throw everything in there.

    It's because we want our own theory section like Naruto. Besides we had a theory thread but it got graveyarded because it is what gave birth to the new theories. Mods saw the future and desperately tried to destroy it before it was too late.

    Alright I was under the notion that the mods wouldn't like more threads being develop, on every theory. But if isn't that big of a deal making a thread on a theory then alright with me.

    I don't know if I mentioned this one, when the chapter came out revealing the first half of the grand line to be paradise. Aohige_AP mentioned some of the translations way back being said during the baratia arc. Zeff telling Luffy before he left "you know what they call the grand line? It's paradise!"

    I don't know the details of the argument about it but it ended up just showing on how far back Oda still had this whole story figured out. Since the baratia arc came out nearly 12-13 years ago.

    Isn't reading Bible in Engrish more like バイブル which would come out as Baiburu or Bai-boo-roo?
