“Kaizoku ou ni ore wa naru!” Luffy’s quote that anyone who loves One Piece will know! This time, I will explain the meaning of One Piece’s quote and the Japanese related to it.
What does “Kaizoku ou ni ore wa naru” mean in Japanese?
Meaning: I will become the pirate king!
Romaji: Kaizoku ou ni ore wa naru
Kaizoku means pirate, and Ou implies king. Ore wa is an expression men use to mean “I,” and Naru is “become.”
What is the difference between “Kaizoku ou ni ore wa naru” and “Ore wa kaizoku ou ni naru.”
Both of these sentences have the same meaning and are grammatically correct. The grammar you usually learn from textbooks is “Ore wa kaizoku ou ni naru.”
However, in this quote, Luffy first speaks “Kaizoku ou ni” because he wants to emphasize that he will be the Pirate King.
If you want to get rich, you might say “Okanemochi ni ore wa naru” like Luffy.
