Shownotes

Continuing our annual theme of Religions in fandoms, we are discussing the deities and beliefs around deities in the One Piece universe! James Demmel, TJ Blackwell, and Elizabeth (Pang) Clyde discuss the Nika Nika fruit, other mythological devil fruits, and characters who are considered gods either by themselves or others in the One Piece world!

.

What does the Nika cross mean? What is the history of ICXC Nika? What is the Nika Nika fruit? Why is the Nika fruit rubber? What is Luffy actual Devil Fruit? Did Joy Boy have the Nika fruit? Is Joy Boy stronger than Roger? Did Shanks know Luffy is Joy Boy? Who is the 9 holy knights in One Piece? Who are all the nobles in One Piece? Are the 5 elders celestial dragons? Who are the 4 gods in One Piece theory? Who is the real god of Skypiea? What are the four god devil fruits? We discuss all this and more in this one! Join in the conversation with us on Discord now!

Systematic Geekology

Our show focuses around our favorite fandoms that we discuss from a Christian perspective. We do not try to put Jesus into all our favorite stories, but rather we try to ask the questions the IPs are asking, then addressing those questions from our perspective. We are not all ordained, but we are the Priests to the Geeks, in the sense that we try to serve as mediators between the cultures around our favorite fandoms and our faith communities.
