    His head is huge because he's based on a mythical figure with a huge forehead, but without it he's a weird fusion between Enel and Ohm.

    He must've eaten a devilfruit sometime after the flashback.

    What "devil fruit"? It could easily be just a " natural phenomenon" like Chinjao.

    Cool Chapter. The visual of Oden's boiling and him dying while the city finish his sentence is cool. The snippets worked for some of the scabbards. I really like them hitting the ground running. If it's going to be his last words I probably would have gone for Oden always introducing himself with the born to boil line every time so that it feels recurrent and has more weight when he does it the last time.

    The 5 year thing is still creating a disconnect and feel out of place in all this. Im curious how the whole flashback read in one sitting.

    Bunch of ingrates. That poor old woman gave Orochi the throne and handed Kaido an easy win and all she gets for her trouble is death.

    I read Oden discussion with Kaido as sarcasm which made it fun. Shinobu chose an odd time to claim they gonna win.

    Moving to baggy pants was an understandable decision. Kaido looked kind of ridiculous in the flashback, a lot more like a typical One Piece character and less like he's ripped straight from a Tekken game.
    Indeed on point with your comment.

    Kaidou somewhat has brought a slight strike of a real japanese shogun in my mind.
    Everbody knows that a shogun does not always have to be loved by his citizen, things like execution of good guy bringing justice had came multiple time. Like that goemon story that oda used as a reference, for example.

    Before he put Oden to rest, he admired Oden's one hour show of spirit and madness, and like somebody here pointed, he wasn't specifically cared about the scabbard escaping, as he was so focused to this man.
    Deep within, Kaidou must have a desire to test how strong he was compared to Oden, if it was another condition, but in a scenario of death execution, it would be weird too to perhaps put the boiling to end and wait for several weeks and put another rematch, just the two of them.
    It just doesn't fit in that condition.

    And he's a criminal after all (a real bad pirate comes to my mind), so getting rid of a huge enemy with potential risk of destroying his plan is something he ought to do. He's not a fighting maniac.

    The last page of the official says 973 drops on March first, but then Mangaplus (the site listing) says it drops on the eighth?

    I thought the guy who shot those arrows was one of the Oniwabanshu, but I checked and is not in the team, so could it be... Tenguyama without his mask

    I've changed my favorite part from Orochi calling the people "trash" to Asura being astonished by how extremely childish Orochi is. 5/5 chapter - Orochi Fan Club President

    When reading: "the Kosukis closed Wano to protect it from an external great power...", the feelings were: "it's Im", and "the closure was in the void century or right after"....

    It's crazy to think that Kaido killing the hag for interfering in the fight is what will lead to his downfall in a certain sense. If he never did that, Bon-chan wouldn't get her fruit and cross paths with Luffy, later helping him escape Impel Down.

    She was still too old, could've died of natural causes easily.

    Nah... we're not even close to that yet.

    The raid on Onigashima has to fail, then Luffy has to grow some more, more people have to make their way to Wano, the Marines need time to find a reason to properly invade...

    But it already failed. Luffy already had 9 days to grow and train, now it's time to win and not have WCI all over again.

    We're less than halfway through the arc, and there's no way Luffy can beat two Yonkou at his current level.

    Have you accounted for the mid-fight growth?
