    It's a moving target. OP will be finished in 5 years from any given point in time.

    Re: Chapter 991: Let Us Die!!!

    Thank you, I already knew that, but it really is a stretch. There were alternatives, anyway: for instance, what we saw from Denjiro suggested he's a more competent swordsman than Kin'emon.

    Re: Chapter 991: Let Us Die!!!

    I see almost no problem concerning power levels: Jack was always going to be pawned by Inu and Neko, and Usop+Nami vs. PayPay+Ulti is going to be hilarious.
    However, I can't understand at all how...

    However, that theory doesn't suggest Toki and Oden to be related by blood. Instead, Toki would be from the original royal family of Wano, and while the Kouzuki became shogun after Toki's family left...

    Sure, but how do you feel about people saying "anything can happen, but at this point the Mihawk vs Zoro final battle looks way less likely than it was until Sabaody"?

    Re: Chapter 923: Emperor Kaidou VS Luffy

    Correct.
    To me, BB is essentially nega-Luffy: outpowered by many (at least pre-TS), but potentially greater than anybody else. Very fascinating, but in a completely different way from Kaido.

    Btw, wasn't it Oda himself who said that he didn't know how Luffy would manage to beat Kaido.
    Something about designing Kaido as "too strong".

    Re: Chapter 914: Okobore, the Town of Leftovers

    Wano was probably one of the allies of the Great Kingdom. They must have decided to cut relations with the rest of the world after losing the war with the World Government.

    TBH I'd rather want Wano to be the Alabasta of Part II.
    (W7 was much more enjoyable than Dressrosa, anyway...)
