Question: “Oda-sensei!! Boss Kyoshiro is really cool, isn’t he?!! I love him!! I want a figurine of him!! The fact that you made such a character in such a world makes me glad to have been born. Please tell me the Boss’s height and favorite food!!” P.N. Majo
*Only recently we discovered the true identity of Kyoshiro. After becoming grief-stricken over Oden’s execution 20 years ago, Denjiro’s appearance changed and he started going under the name Kyoshiro. With this new identity, he became a yakuza boss and recruited followers to form the Kyoshiro Family. Eventually, he started working for Oden’s usurper, shogun Kurozumi Orochi, as his money changer and bodyguard; he would successfully keep his true allegiance to the Kozuki Family a secret and bide his time until the day would come of the Scabbards reuniting for the final battle to take down Orochi and Kaido.
Oda: “Kyoshiro! You really get it, don’t you~? I also feel like I gave it my all in designing him!! I received several questions regarding the Nine Red Scabbards, so you can have everybody’s heights and favorite foods. While we’re at it, I included Shinobu and Izo as well.
Indeed. It seems like everyone likes ingredients that are commonly put in Oden.”
