Was it not obvious what I was saying? Yes, Luffy, Zoro, even Usopp, they have all earned everything they’ve developed, regardless of who their families are. The same way I have absolutely no problems with anything Sanji did up until the RS, despite him also coming from a unique background of warmongers. I don’t think Judge had anything to do with Sanji beating Mr 2, I don’t care that Yasopp could also snipe Sugar, Ryuma didn’t make Zoro able to defeat Pica and Dragon didn’t give Luffy the power to beat Kaido. Complaining about that is like shouting at top athletes “If I had your DNA I could do that!” It’s dumb as fuck. Are people not meant to root for Luke Skywalker because his dad was also strong?
Whereas this has nothing to do with Sanji. It’s literally all Judge’s actions. It’s not even like Franky who at least experimented on himself, so we can say that a triumph of Franky’s robotics is also a triumph of Franky’s ability as a scientist.
You are backtracking on what you said here
As for the natural advantage question, it’s the difference between someone being a naturally gifted runner and someone taking a ton of steroids to get to the same speed. Life isn’t fair, some people are born better than others, doesn’t mean mad science experiments on children is the way to combat that. There’s a reason no one likes Lance Armstrong anymore.
You basically admited that some things are not earned because some are "naturally gifted" and "life is not fair".
We were comparing "naturally gifted" with Judge rigging the game to also "gift" his children.
So either way, those added benefits are not earned. KAido doesn't earn his birth as an ogre. Big Mom doesn't earn her birth as a freak of nature. Jimbe did not earn being born as a fishman 10x stronger at base.
How many of those origin stories also had nearly twenty odd years of the hero fighting perfectly well without any Nazi bullshit?
Perhaps it would have been better if we learned about Germa all those years ago alongside Zeff and it had always played a part in Sanji’s story. But that isn’t the case. Here we had an absolutely great background, gave us the reason for Sanji not using his hands, some fun anger-based powerups then all of a sudden he had a second (much, much poorer origin) and is suddenly fighting like a Nazi power ranger.
I mean some do, but that doesn't even change anything about the argument i am making. Either way powers obtained under conditions that we are not meant to root for, can lead to outcomes that we are meant to root for and benefit the good guys.
Either way, it does not validate in any way the manner in which those people got experimented on or tries to enforce the notion that it's a good thing to do. Oda's not writting a story here where Sanji's going to become an advocate of child experimentation and it's benefits, that's a hilarious way to look at this.
And because we had all those years of Sanji not using Germa tech, when we come across his shitty father and his brothers all laughing at him, calling him a failure, I’m far more interested in seeing the hero prove them wrong using all those skills we saw him develop in the years before we ever knew he was a Vinsmoke.
Instead he’s been saved by them. Hoorah for Judge. Hero of the hour. We couldn’t even get the route of Sanji stealing the RS or trying to unlock his exoskeleton himself or somethinf that at least gives him some agency in all this. Instead he‘s given it by Niji while being, again, derided by him for being too weak.
But Sanji had the agency in this. None of this would have happened if Sanji was like his family. Judge and his family alongside all of Germa would have been destroyed. All of this is only possible because Sanji chose to act entirely unlike Germa, and follow Zeff's principles.
Now Sanji's getting the type of powers Judge gave to his supposed "perfect soldiers" children, and he's going to reach heights they can only dream of because of the life he has lived, and all of the choices he has made that has separated him from Germa.
The Sanji that becomes what Judge wanted of him is Yonji 2.0. Sanji beating Queen and stronger opponents in the future is only possible because he did not live his life the way his siblings did.
Sanji needs to continue to confront his Germa roots because his end game continues to be tied with Germa. He's the one that will change the Kingdom, and use it's resources to better the world instead, as he's going to do with his newfound powers.
We know that Judge is wrong. Judge died at Big Mom's Tea Party with everyone including his children laughing at him. This is Sanji dealing with his past, and changing things for the better.
