sanji ~ chef "The Straw Hat Pirates'

Sanji (サンジ), nicknamed "Black Leg" Sanji (黒脚のサンジ Kuro Ashi no Sanji), is the crew's 19-year-old chef. He knows how it feels to starve from first hand experience, so he will never refuse someone a meal. He has a strong sense of chivalry, because of which, he will never harm a woman, even if he dies. Sanji also seems to keep this code regardless of a woman's appearance. His dream is to find the "All Blue" (オールブルー Ōru Burū, renamed "Great Blue" in the 4Kids dub), a legendary sea, containing every kind of fish in the world. Sanji is also a very skilled fighter who uses only kicks. He said that this is because a chef's hands are his most prized possessions and should not be risked in battle.His fighting style resembles the capoeira. Sanji also has the ability to employ a fire based kick, called "Diable Jamble" (ディアブルジャンブ Diaburu Janbu, spelled as "Diable Jambe" in the English manga) in which he sets his leg on fire by spinning around rapidly, this causes his attacks to be much more powerful, Sanji first used this technique at Enies Lobby. Sanji's current bounty is 77,000,000 Berries. He is voiced by Hiroaki Hirata as an adult and Ikue Ōtani as a child in the Japanese version of the franchise. In the English dubs, he is voiced by David Moo as an adult and Veronica Taylor as a child for 4Kids, and by Eric Vale as an adult and Christine Auten as a child for Funimation. Sanji ranked in the Top 5 of all three Shōnen Jump character popularity polls.
