    The New Straw Hat Pirates Bounties After Wano – Ranked

    I believe that at the end of the Wano arc, Luffy’s bounty will be even bigger than Kaido’s and Big Mom’s current bounties. It is apparent that the Five Elders greatly fear Luffy’s potential and even ordered CP0, the highest agency within the World Government, to eliminate Luffy as he battled Kaido, due to the […] More

    A Small Detail Missed in Chapter 1049!

    At the end of Chapter 1049 we see Luffy fall exhausted. If you look closely, you may notice something strange, a detail that has given rise to several theories according to which Luffy lost his left eye in the fight against Kaido. Luffy’s eyes, especially his gaze, have been consistently commented on by Kaido this […] More

    Did Luffy finally defeat Kaido?!

    In my opinion this is not the end of Wano. Kaido has been fighting nonstop for 63 chapters (he fought Big Mom for 3 days, then he fought the Nine Red Scabbards, the 5 Supernovas, then Luffy, Yamato and finally Luffy again), with incredible feats of strength and getting constantly attacked. Without eating. Kaido is extremely durable […] More

    Kaido & King – The Best Captain and Right Hand Man Duo?

    Bar the obvious usual suspects, Luffy-Zoro and Roger-Rayleigh (I also like Kid-Killer a lot) there even is a better duo than these two? Kaido and King have an incredible bond, they really are such a great duo of Captain and Right Hand Man. They share a gargantuan amount of parallels that make them unique in […] More

    What Happened to Kaido in the God Valley Incident!

    Chapter 1049 confirmed some new information and here’s what I’ve got laid out for what happened to Kaido during the God Valley Incident. Kaido’s been heavily foreshadowed to have something major happened to him which caused Big Mom to call Kaido that “thing” which implies Big Mom is afraid of Kaido. With the latest chapter, […] More

    One Piece Ending – Analysis

    With the recent events taking place it’s pretty obvious that we are nearing the end of Wano. So instead of making yet another post about how I think Wano will end I wanted to use this opportunity to talk about what the future of One Piece hold. I will make my predictions based on a couple of statements […] More

    A Small Detail Missed in Chapter 1048!

    Luffy’s fist looked much smaller compared to Kaido in Chapter 1048 than it did in Chapter 1047. I thought Oda might’ve nerfed the size of it a bit, but nope. If you look closely, the real Kaido is inside his new form Kaen Daiko. Kaido breathes a large amount of flames from his mouth, forming […] More

    Current Location of All Major Characters in Onigashima (Chapter 1048)

    On the roof, the battle between Luffy and Kaidou continues. Inside the castle, Usopp tries to keep Kin’emon and Kikunojo from drowning and the other samurai cheer for Luffy to defeat Kaidou, with Kawamatsu saying that unless Kaidou is defeated, then their long nightmare won’t end. On the Treasure Repository floor, Orochi, still on fire, […] More

    Oda’s amazing attention to details in Chapter 1048!

    Chapter 1048 is very thematic, it revolves around fire and freedom. From the start, Kaido sets himself on fire and announces that Wano’s hero burned to death. We proceed to a flashback that takes us to the burning castle, the beginning of the slavery, we are shown everything Kaido and Orochi have done to this […] More

    Oda’s Symbolism in Chapter 1048

    I understand why people think this chapter filler-like if you are not enthusiastic about culture. However, I believe Chapter 1048 is much more meaningful to Japanese readers, because it actually elaborates the cultural & historical importance of Japan Fire Festival by using the perspective of Wano background. People pray for bumper harvest, peace and health […] More

    Why it’s a still too early for Luffy to beat Kaido

    After the latest chapter, lots of people believe that Luffy will beat Kaido with his next attack. However, in my opinion, there are a few things about this “final attack” that strike me as odd, especially when compared to earlier arcs and the common patterns in other final blows. 1. It’s one-sided A consistent pattern […] More

    The Unexpected Location of Kaido’s Road Poneglyph!

    Before talking about the location of the Road Poneglyph in Wano, I must discuss why the World Government wants Wano. On Skypiea it was said that Seastones, as well as Sky Islands are created from a certain substance called “Pyrobloin”, and that this substance is ejected into the air by volcanoes. It is a fact […] More

    Kaido wants to prove that he’s better than Rocks D. Xebec

    Why Kaido keeps on fighting… and why doesn’t he dodge? Here’s my short theory on that. I believe Kaido was betrayed by Rocks D. Xebec. Rocks ran away from the fight, and it left a huge hole in Kaido’s heart as he looked up to Rocks. Now Kaido wants to prove to himself that he’s […] More

    Chapter 1046 shows that Kaido is now Resigned to Defeat!

    Oda is kinda wrapping this arc up in a rather unconventional way. Usually an arc reaches its climax with a notion of ambiguity; the Commanders are defeated but the main anatagonist is still looking like he is going to win, or is at least ignorant towards his eventual defeat, while there is still a sense […] More

    Chapter 1046 clarifies how Devil Fruit Awakening occurs

    According to Kaido, Awakening is when the mind and body are able to haness the ability. This I think, sums up awakening, because this implies that it’s a natural procedure, which means it be might possible to force, or stimulate it. In natural circumstances, the devil fruit awakens when the coditions are complete, when the […] More

    Why the Fight between Gear 5 Luffy and Kaido is so satisfying!

    So obviously recent developments in the manga have been divisive. Off the bat, this isn’t a post to decry criticism of the recent development nor is it really even an argument in favor of why people should like it. I’m just really happy about One Piece right now and I wanted to elaborate. I actually […] More

    Luffy Has a Different Personality When He’s in Gear 5 Form!

    While reading Chapter 1044 and 1045, I strongly felt like something about Luffy’s personality was off and different when in Gear 5, so I wanted to point out some observations I made. I believe that Gear 5 somehow influences Luffy’s personality. How? It might be the will of the fruit, we’ve learned that Zoans have their “own will”. It might also […] More

    Powerful Devil Fruits aren’t what make Characters Strong

    With the recent revelations of the Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika, there’s been a lot of discussion around Luffy and the “chosen one” trope. That’s fair, but it’s worth remembering that in One Piece, strong devil fruits aren’t what make people strong. Of course having a powerful devil fruit is a major strength. When […] More

    Special Episode “Luff” – What If Sabo SAVED Ace?

    Special Episode “Luff” is a three chapter “what if” storyline showing what would happen if Sabo had rescued Luffy and Ace at Marineford. It ran in the official One Piece magazine. Rushing to his brothers’ aid during the Battle of Marineford, Sabo manages to rescue Portgas D. Ace and Monkey D. Luffy from Admiral Akainu at […] More

    Will Eustass Kid replace Big Mom among the Four Emperors?

    Right now Luffy seem to be way ahead of every other Supernova, the only one able to stand up to an Emperor alone. Now that Kaido and Big Mom have both been defeated, what happens? Luffy is already considered the fifth emperor so we can assume that he will take Kaido’s place as a Yonko. […] More

    Scopper Gaban is waiting at Lodestar Island!

    During the Wano Arc we have seen the Roger Pirates reaching the last island in the Grand Line, Laugh Tale. Roger and his crew’s reaction upon finding Joy Boy’s treasure was simply laughter. This led Roger to name the island after what he considered a “funny story”, referring to whatever happened to Joy Boy. We […] More

    The Mythical Zoan Devil Fruit wich explains Blackbeard’s Body Structure

    Blackbeard is one of my favorite villains in the series, and the discussions/theories involving him had been, at least for me, one of the highlights of the One Piece fandom. I’ve seen the most popular theories about Blackbeard, especially those about his 3rd rumored Devil Fruit. While the popular consensus is that his 3rd DF […] More

    All the plot threads in Wano that connect back to Vegapunk!

    It’s heavily speculated that Vegapunk would be formally introduced during the aftermath of this arc given how many plot threads in Wano revolve around him. I am personally a bit skeptical of this and feel that we’ll only see him in his research facility, treating the kids from Punk Hazard. But irrespective of where and […] More

    The Potential Significance of Sanji’s Victory vs Queen

    One thing I love about these last two chapters about Sanji is that the duality between him and Queen, it’s displayed on so many points, I love it. First, in Chapter 1031 there’s that panel that pretty much says it all. Sanji is facing the one thing he don’t want to become, the one thing […] More
