So, let’s take a look at the responses from Carrot, Wanda, Brook, and Luffy fans.

According to one of them, when they use a translator or subtitles for the Japanese, they don’t show Garchu meaning because apparently, it’s not Japanese. To that, a homie replied, it’s Nepali. And in the Nepali language, it means I love you. Although some of the fans are of the view that since it is used at the ending of the sentences, it could mean Goodbye or farewell.

So Can We Say That It Is A Made Up Word?

Oh well, that is a question for the creators but yes, it’s safe to assume that it is made up. Just like many other languages, words, and terms used in anime, video games, and comic books. The nonsensical themes, unique outfits, and strange characters are close to people’s hearts and that’s what all matters.

If a rabbit named carrot is a sweetheart for thousands, who are we to disagree. When fans put their trust in the power of their favorite characters, there’s nothing that can change their minds. And in a sense, it is a positive thing, allowing people to meet others with the same interests, ideas, and thinking. Any community which doesn’t talk about negativity is great and is worth sharing. So if you haven’t had the pleasure of reading Manga or the One Piece, go ahead and try some. Maybe you’ll love it, so much so that next thing you know, you are also a part of a Reddit thread of questions.

And on the other hand, if you didn’t like it, there’s no harm in it. You tried a thing, you didn’t like it, no big deal. It’s the same as trying a new food item at a party, if you like it, you can ask for a recipe or order from your favorite place. If you didn’t like it, you can save yourself from spending your money and time in the future. So good luck with knowing another kind of carrot or maybe falling in love with its cute little action, the Straw Hat pirates await you!
