Ishigo Shitemanna

Ishigo Shitemanna is an appraiser in Water 7.

Appearance

Ishigo is a pale man with short black hair and a large, pointed mustache. He wears a white shirt with purple overalls.

History

Water 7 Saga

Water 7 Arc

When Monkey D. Luffy, Nami, and Usopp brought him their Skypiean gold to exchange for cash, he quickly grew excited at its sheer quality, but deliberately undervalued it at 100,000,000. Though Luffy and Usopp were easily satisfied, Nami was suspicious of the appraisal, and warned Ishigo of Luffy’s bounty before threatening violence. Ishigo was instantly intimidated and exchanged their gold for its rightful cash value: 300,000,000.

Anime and Manga Differences

In the anime, he claims to have been an appraiser for twenty-five years.

Translation and Dub Issues

His name is a pun on a Japanese phrase roughly meaning “You did a good job” (いい仕事してまんな?)—possibly meant as an ironic joke on his needing to be threatened into performing competently. In the 7th popularity poll, it is adapted as Verree Finework.
