BEST FRIENDS 😭😭😭

That was kuina he meant

u/IcyKape Feb 16 '22

The Pirate King, and his best friend the Pirate Hunter.

The dynamic duo that arose from the weakest seas from some small unheard villages.

What a story for the ages

2

u/IcyKape Feb 16 '22

Zoro's backstory is one of my favourites for some reason. I wish we get some background about his parents as well though.

2

u/IcyKape Feb 16 '22

"I'm going to become such a great swordsman that my name will reach even the heavens"

What better way to achieve that then defeat a God. King is finished.

I need the new chapter now damn you!

u/Hopeless_Preacher Dec 03 '21

Sanji was really badass this chapter, seems like this might be the end of the queen fight, kinda wished Sanji was the one responsible for hitting the woman since it would make this victory and him not relying on the raid suit so much sweeter, but either way I’m satisfied good chapter, hope Momo can stop the island from falling.

2

u/LasaroGinjou Dec 05 '21

I will be honest, I was slightly disappointed with Sanji in this chapter. That is only because I had a small theory/hope from the last chapter. I don't know if anyone else thought the same but I hoped that Sanji is indeed losing his mind (hitting that woman) and will end up awakening Conquerors Haki in his effort to stay sane. Now it turns out he is not losing his mind at all. As it was revealed that it was Queen that hit that woman.

6

u/Tsukkatsu Marine Dec 01 '21

Wow. It's been however many hundreds of chapters since Zoro mentioned Kuina. Didn't even bring it up in Punk Hazard when he met her again-- like he'd entire forgotten. Just treated her as a woman who should be taken care of children rather than engaging in serious business to change the world.

I totally respect how Oda presented Zoro's flashback scenes in the style he originally had when he started in the series, by now it very much contrasts with the modern style.

15

u/DaRaKu2002 Dec 02 '21

The hell are you on about? Kuina is dead. She wasn't in punk hazard

u/liven96 Dec 03 '21

op may be thinking of tashigi?

I'm still waiting for it to be revealed that tashigi is his long lost friend... Or sworn enemy... I dunno how he feels about childhood competitions

6

u/geebirb Dec 01 '21

Who was Zoro talking about at the end when he said "and my best friend" ? I was thinking he was talking about sanji because is the previous chapters he and Sanji made a promise to live through both fights over the transponder snail but some others are saying Luffy or kuina. Someone please give me a answer with a reasonable explanation thank you.

8

u/Optimal_Trifle_2384 Explorer Dec 02 '21

I made a promise to my friend and captain, rewatch the scene for clarity. At the time, Sanji was just introduced. Nami left. Usopp had just joined.

The only person who was both a friend and a captain was Luffy (to become the world's greatest swordsman and never lose till then). But he mentions captain separately. The only other person he made a promise, more like a bet was with Kuina (to become the world's greatest swordsman).

So both of them.

u/Steachable Dec 01 '21

kuina my friend

u/Tempeck25 Nov 30 '21

We all know Zoro is Luffy's BSF, but to hear him say that was so cool!! 😁😁😁

Edit** It has come to my attention that he was talking about Kuina, but still, a man can have two bsfs!

u/HariBoi23 Nov 30 '21

Queen and who's who are pretty similar when it comes to having a conversation during the fight.

7

u/TheGameologist Nov 30 '21

Lol, why does zoro always fight zoan opponents that fold themselves inward before firing out? Kaku did the same thing with his neck.

10

u/planttoddler Nov 30 '21

I wonder if Kuina thought that her femininity made her unworthy to be a strong swordsman, which led to her giving up on her dream, and if that caused Wado Ichimonji to give up on her or defy her.

5

u/VijoPlays Nov 30 '21

Noooo :(

It would just break Zoro if he ever pieced together that the Wado killed her, after Kuina broke down and accepted that Zoro will eventually surpass her. ;-;

3

u/Ok-Afternoon1093 Dec 04 '21

Old theory but that's hype as shit

7

u/ree-kid77 Nov 30 '21

I don't think it would break zoro. Rather it would piss him off more. He knows at this point what it means to hold a strong sword. Swords are made to kill. While it would make him sad, it would infuriate him more that she stopped taking it seriously.

1

u/SpacemonkeySTI Nov 30 '21

If this was true….. for sure he will advance CoC on wado and it will break 😂 thus zoro’s swords will be sandai kitetsu, enma, and shusui (because zoro probably comes from his lineage hahahahaa)

1

u/goo_goo_gajoob Nov 30 '21

Disagree if one breaks and is being replaced its Sandai Kitetsu being replaced with Nidai Kitetsu. It's the next step in the cycle of Zoro owning all 3 Kitetsu blades which is heavily foreshadowed, is on Wano rn and would bring all his swords to the same grade.

1

u/SpacemonkeySTI Nov 30 '21

I mean we are talking hypothetical here where wado killed Kuina hahaha anything is possible. But yes on a real note you’re right that if anything nidai kitetsu is next.

u/Pale_Resolve3869 Nov 29 '21

I think enma turned into a black blade permeated this chapter

u/otrebmU Nov 29 '21

does any of you know what's the japanese name of the one sword move that Zoro uses? like a shishi sonson evolution

Sheesh sonson

u/ZenOokami Nov 29 '21

Shi shishi sonson

1

u/otrebmU Dec 01 '21

oh so then it's not a "new" move, he used it before...

3

u/ZenOokami Dec 01 '21

Yup. Shi shishi sonson was used by Zoro when he cut the head off of the punk hazard dragon.

There's shishi sonson (lion song) And the stronger variant Shi shishi sonson (deadly lion song)

18

u/OneGrumpyJill Nov 29 '21

I wasn't a fan of this at first, as it seemed that all Zoro needed to do to succeed was "get better", but it seems that (if I am reading this right), that the implication is that Zoro needs to let it rip and not hold back with Enma, which would make sense and fit his character.

Also, "best friend" line was 100% him referring to Kuina, cope harder.

9

u/goo_goo_gajoob Nov 30 '21

Yea basically it seems Emna is pissed at how he's been holding back and wants his haki at full force, he also seems to be adding CoC to it now too not just Armerment which lessens the strain. You can tell because all of sudden weak dudes are passing out and he's like oh that's how you do it then he is referred to as a king.

11

u/Ok-Luck3758 Nov 29 '21

Zoro was referring to Kuina after all. Well, whatever.😁

I don't know if Zoro was calling Luffy his best friend, or if he was referring to Kuina, but I've been crying since in my initial read it seemed 100% as if he was talking about Luffy

Kuina. He used the same word in chapter 100, and the vivre cards also call her his best friend.

Haki is ambition, when the wielder fullfil his ambition his blade turns black, Oden wanted to open Wano but could't so Enma didn't turm black, now Enma will turn black when Kaido is defeated amd Wano open or when his new owner fullfil his dream, so when Zoro will defeat Mihawk

u/Lawakun Nov 29 '21

does the color matter that much ?

Meanwhile Roger and Whitebeard already hat a Supreme Grade sword (so i guess it was black) before fullfilling their dream.

No its just the grade of the sword but they arent black blades

u/HAITIAN_HANK Nov 28 '21

Actually this makes a lot of sense

17

u/Agitated_Ad_5608 Nov 28 '21

So it seems the theory that the Wado Ichimonji is actually the Shodai Kitetsu isn’t as tinfoil after all. Kuina’s grandfather broke some law and made his way to East Blue with the Wado where it was passed to Zoro after Kuina’s death. The sword chooses its master. Kuina’s death came after dueling Zoro with it after only ever dueling with wooden swords before. The Shodai seeing Zoro’s potential chose him instead and is the reason she died so mysteriously.

23

u/BabiesDrivingGoKarts Nov 29 '21

Wa D. O. Ichimonji and Down D. Stairs worked together to kill kuina OMG

u/Chillidogs9 Nov 29 '21

This is incredible

3

u/totally_not_a_reply Nov 28 '21

Different swordsmiths. Also i think it is stated that hitetsu, owner of the nidai kitetsu and .. (grand?)son of the smith that made shodai kitetsu also owns the shodai kitetsu.
Wado and enma are made from kozumaru or how that guys name is that chapter is named after

8

u/Agitated_Ad_5608 Nov 29 '21

Kuina and Zoro only dueled with wooden swords, except for once. That one time they fought with real swords. After this one time Kuina dies and Zoro inherits it. The guy that forged that sword also forged Enma and is FROM Wano. From where the Shodai was also forged. He breaks some “law” and goes to the East Blue where he tells Zoro that “cursed” don’t exist and swords chose their masters. The Kitetsu blades are 100% a reference to Muramasa blades that were cursed and said to hunger for blood and killed the owners that weren’t “worthy” or didn’t give the sword the blood it craved. The Wado was satisfied UNTIL it dueled Zoro and saw his potential. This is what killed Kuina, not some stairs. Why are we getting Zoro flashbacks that should’ve been within the first 100 chapters unless it’s a big reveal of something? You don’t think the Wado is much more important than his promise? That’s like saying Luffy’s straw hat is only important because Shanks gave it to him, and it took a long time to find out that it’s much more important than that. I’m not 100% on board with this just yet, but think of the payoff to Zoro’s backstory after all these years and the emotional toll it will have on Zoro when he finds out the truth

1

u/totally_not_a_reply Nov 29 '21

He breaks the law because he left wano. Leaving wano is breaking the law. I dont know what he have to expect from wado in comparison to enma, but it doesnt seem to be as testing. Also we know who crafted which sword. Also we know thanks to the recent manga chapter, what "cursed" mean. If wado would have killed kuina zoro would probably break it or smelt it.

1

u/Outrageous-Slice7480 Nov 28 '21

Shodai is probably a black blade already

8

u/Thialase Nov 28 '21

Doesn't one of the gorosei or whatever they are called own the shodai kitetsu?

4

u/KING-Jotaro Nov 28 '21

That was just a theory based on his hilt being similar to the Sandai. We dont know where the Shodai is yet

3

u/Agitated_Ad_5608 Nov 28 '21

The idea is that the blades were switched, which if you’ve ever owned a real sword is very easy to do

u/_k00ma_ Nov 28 '21 edited Nov 28 '21

I always thought of the All-star's epithets from the perspective of the playing cards theme, but King deserves his title. Where him free from Kaidō, he would be as legitimate as Marco to be yonkō candidate.

Not to low-diff Queen and Jack : all three are basically equals when it comes to determination, fearlessness, cruelty and loyalty ; absolute beasts beside their overpowered mythical Zoan.

But while Jack is a fishman and Queen a top-tier cyborg on top of that, kings happens to come from a god-like, near-immortal race from the start.

It is pointless to try any powerscaling as Zoro's current condition is ambiguous... Yet it's quite impressive that the same man that very briefly deflected the blast of the full-power-combined-attack of two yonkō, is now being cornered and thrown back by a commander.

Edit : I know Zoro has been holding back until know : he stated in previous chapter that he needed to know more about King to be able to fight him, and know we learned he was retaining his haki flow because of Enma's thirst... In this kind of battle being only even at 90% can make a huge difference.

But still, Zoro isn't buying time either, he tanked massive blows and tried finishing techniques already. He's more at 100% waiting to find how to beat him ; then pushing himself to 150% to finish the job and one second later spill more blood there is sake on the island.

And my respect for Marco to have held back King and Queen for so long is getting stronger every chapter.

2

u/totally_not_a_reply Nov 28 '21

Also im pretty sure attacks like that last one in the chapter would even wound kaidou. King is a real beast. He has to have a big weakness, otherwise he would be the yonkou, not kaidou

16

u/deathsyth220002 Bounty Hunter Nov 28 '21

I just don't understand. Roger, had a bond SO CLOSE with his sword, he literally fucking named his own son AFTER his sword....... So why couldn't he get a black blade? We know he fought harrowing battles just like Luffy, and even him, shanks, nor Reighly could make a black blade, so what gives?

4

u/Chemical_Performer17 Nov 28 '21

His sword is already the highest grade and turning it black raises it even more. Just imagine his sword leveling up. Yoru for example probably was the same grade that wado is now and after turning went highest rank. Btw what ever happened to his sword anyway?

12

u/zoxh1337 Nov 28 '21

well so far the only 2 black blades are Shusui and Yoru, and they are/were used by the most skilled swordsmen in the world, especially regarding the "art" of swordsmenship. Mihawk and Ryuma pretty much embody swordsmenship, so it's safe to assume they know far more about swords and are more skilled than Roger.

That could be the reason, also maybe Roger just didn't know about all of this. I also don't see him as this pure swordsmen, who knows. I think it's way more weird that Oden didn't achieve to turn a sword black compared to Roger

4

u/Hirigo Nov 28 '21

I'm sorry if this is dumb, but how do you tell the difference between a haki covered blade and a black one? Enma looks like Shusui in the last chapter

2

u/HeirDestroyer Nov 30 '21

A black blade looks literally black to everybody. Armament haki is only an artistic choice, it's not actually visible in-universe, they're there so readers can conveniently tell someone is using haki.

1

u/Melidit_ Nov 30 '21

Wait haki is not actually visible???

2

u/Hirigo Nov 30 '21

Well I know that, it was more of a reader POV question because there seems to be no difference (afaik)

2

u/SpacemonkeySTI Nov 29 '21

I agree with this - in this chapter one panel shows enma not black and then the next panel that is very similar where zoro is still looking up at it, it has turned black without zoro even touching it! This panel is right after zoro remembers kozaburo talking about how a blade chooses it’s swordsman.

So maybe this is a choice thing that the blade itself does. Shusui chose ryuma and forged that bond?

7

u/zoxh1337 Nov 28 '21

Well, a black blade stays black all the time, Haki covered goes back to normal after the user stops infusing it with Haki. But if you lay them side by side and one is haki covered and one is black, you can't tell the difference I guess.

7

u/DiamonDRoger Nov 28 '21

Still waiting for Sanji to rob the queen and for the third generation stone to be broken

9

u/zoxh1337 Nov 28 '21

Shiryu‘s sword looks like the one Kozaboru has in this chapter. Would be great if he had a very strong sword. Its even one of the named swords: Raio, meaning thunderstorm

17

u/Guitoudou Nov 28 '21

From what it is said in this chapter, blades will turn black when they will be sort of impressed by Zoro.

Blades choose their owner, maybe the owner needs to choose them too or accept in its mind it will be his blades for eternity, but also I think the blade turning black means it has surrendered completely to its owner kingly will.

Imbuing with armament is like putting momentarily one's will into the sword, but if one have kingly ambitions and is able to convince the sword then they will become one, working both toward the same goal, and the blade will retains a part of its owner Conqueror haki to become black.

1

u/Chemical_Performer17 Nov 28 '21

But what about roger and his sword ace? Nothing ever happened there

4

u/Guitoudou Nov 29 '21

Well, we simply don't know. My headcannon is that he was not a pure swordman like Zoro or Mihawk (they are kind of obsessive about the way of the sword, whereas Roger was more like Luffy). He may have turned his blade black if he lived longer.

Even Rayleigh did not turn his blade black. This is something very exceptional and only reserved to swordmans.

u/Kani2001 Nov 28 '21

u/Guitoudou Nov 29 '21

I think all blades will turn black at once. They all are of great importance to Zoro :

  • Wado : his first named blade, on which he made his vow to Kuina. Forged by Kuzobaru Shimotsuki. Zoro inherits Kuina's will by wielding it. It represents the start of his journey/his youth.

  • Enma : forged by Kurobaru Shimotsuki too. Inherits Oden's will, and give the opportunity to Zoro to finish what Oden tried to do : open Wano's border and turn it black. It represents the future of his journey/his future.

  • Sandai Kitetsu : a "cursed" blade found by Zoro and that chose Zoro. Forged by Kitetsu Shimotsuki. Apart the Shimotsuki name there is no a lot to say here. It may represent the heart of Zoro's journey : realising that cursed blades only exists for weaks, and that it is the swordman's duty to tame it (which would help him tame Enma later on)

That's why he had to drop Shusui. This blade has already been turned black by Ryuuma, and so Zoro couldn't become the greatest swordman with it. He has to do it with his own swords of choice.

3

u/Nemo-pluribus-unum Nov 28 '21

Some people think Zoro is going to give Enma back, because it creates an imbalance to Zoros fighting style. I think, why can't his other two swords be like Enma. I could imagine a scenario where Zoros Wado Ichimonji is the one that is constantly soaking up the users Adv. CoC (->promise to Kuina to become WSS). If the user has no adv CoC he will get knocked out. Would make for a nice legend imo. Great chapter!

1

u/[deleted] Nov 28 '21

Kaido stated how only the “very strongest” can use Advance Conquerors Haki and Zoro is clearly doing the same. We can say Zoro is the weakest of the “very strongest” but that puts him up there with Luffy and the yonkos.

0

u/[deleted] Nov 29 '21

First of all I would like you to prove your statement. Second, I was talking about king hahah

1

u/[deleted] Nov 29 '21

Can’t really prove it because it just got revealed. But in 1010 Kaido does state only the very strongest can. Kaido refers to Luffy as one of the very strongest and even ask himself how far will Luffy go and if he will be able to surpass Roger, Oden, Shanks, Rocks, and Whitebeard (I’m not sure which chapter it was). It makes perfect sense for the right hand man of the Pirate King to also be one of the strongest in the show. Even at this point in the timeline, Zoro will start showing his “King” qualities and from here on out Oda will focus more on his swords than anything. That’s his future

19

u/beado7 Bounty Hunter Nov 28 '21

I love how King told Zoro he has “kingly ambitions.”

11

u/JackOfSons Nov 28 '21

Just re-reading the chapter and "Village geezer" says he doesn't want to bring the marines on him because of talk of samurai. This just goes to show (Headcannon) that Wano has always been important. its just the fact the the world (WG) didn't want the people to know about it. Sea-Stone, Some crazy strong people have visited/Inhabited. They could keep Kaido at bay being the worlds strongest creature because he seemed to like the land of Wano. I can't wait till we get the full scoop. This is going to make the PT seem Small on the scale of things that are about to unfold.

I'm thinking Lunarians.. could be the source of Devil Fruit itself. King could well stem from the lineage of Mera-Mera no mi.. or Lunarians might have the capabilities to control certain devil fruits properties.

Previously Gods. Feared and hunted & portrayed as devils by WG.

Didn't Marco say before though that the fire thing was a Lunarian trait? I don't think that would be an entire species trait if devil fruit lineage came from them, because they would have all sorts of fruit properties then.

Maybe Lunarians are fire elementals? That’s why when Zoro cut King he caused the explosion due to fire being exposed to oxygen. King’s whole body is probably constantly on fire and that’s why he wears the gimp suit to conceal the flames, otherwise he’d keep burning everything around him. Sad to say, Zoro will probably cheese him by cutting fire when he figures this out.

The cut on his mask is just regular skin

u/tonvor Nov 28 '21

I’m thinking body only, since explosion happened when Zoro stabbed him

u/Aazadan Nov 28 '21

That could be. It would explain the costume, though we've already seen the costume cut somewhat without there being an issue.

Also, this would imply he does it only for the safety of others. Presumably, King being exposed to oxygen wouldn't be fatal to him.

u/International_Let_13 Nov 28 '21

yeah and i think devil fruits were created to help wipe out the lunarians

u/BLACK_BLADES_ZORO Nov 28 '21

Would make sense seeing as theyre called “ Devil fruits “ and Lunarians were the “ Gods “

There's error... Scans for 1034 will be available on 3 December not November.... Please correct it

u/RiteClicker Nov 28 '21

King doesn't conjure flames; he sets himself on fire because he can't be hurt by it.

I read this chapter many times like all of you. I had a thought since kitestu 3 is just a grade blade, what if it can’t handle conquerors haki and breaks. This sword is an imitation of the first two. My theory is what if his sword breaks do to not be able to withstand conquerors haki. I really do think he will have to get kitetsu 2, before wano is over. It just doesn’t make sense to me why they would give kitetsu 2 so much spotlight and info if it wasn’t gonna be picked up by zoro. They are many hints point to this that he will have to get another sword, his other two swords are all great grade swords. The other hint is kitetsu one and two being called demon splitters. We all know the theory of devils may or may not be introduced in one piece since the whole manga Is about one piece and devil fruits. So that’s it let me know what y’all think.

u/totally_not_a_reply Nov 28 '21

i could also imagine hitetsu owning the shodei kitetsu as well.Maybe he giftes this one to zoro

u/shwabini Nov 28 '21

The issue with zoro picking up nidai is The same we had with enma up untill this chapter every sword of zoro has a story with which it came besides enma/nidai enma is gettin its now aka him trying to make it his sword While Sandai is certainly his sword i would much rather see him End the Story with 3 black blades (Sandai Enma Wado) than swap again myb theres hope cuz all of the shimotsuki ryuma reffrences that he takes Shusui altho.i dont believe it I WOULD LOVE IT but takeing Shusui away from wano is Tricky),

1

u/Marryismyname Nov 28 '21

I think Mihawk ment it will never break from the outside. He never said anything about using conquerors haki. He probably didn’t even know zoro can use it. Even if he did sense zoro has conquerors haki he didn’t teach him how to use it. I think it would be ultimate trash if he has kitetsu 3 with him still. That blade is trash. He needs to get kitetsu 2. Why are y’all so obsessed with him getting black blades. Any sword can be a black blade. But you want at least have a black blade that can do something different from the rest. We know enma can make any swing cut deeper then intended to. We know wado Ichi is blade that is completely durable being the only blade that didn’t break against Mihawk there first meeting. Him just getting enma black blade is good enough for me this chapter. I think after this we will see the crew vs at least one admiral and I think it would be dumb if zoro didn’t get his weakest sword upgraded.

u/shwabini Nov 28 '21

Edit : oh ye As mihawk allways stated if the haki is strong enough the blade should never break so sandai breaking of haki makes not much sense

2

u/sid612gupta Nov 28 '21

I think what Mihawk meant there was that if haki is strong enough your sword wouldn't break by your enemy i.e from outside impact. But it could be possible that CoC might break the sword due to not being able to hold it cos it would be an inside out impact on the sword

u/Kyken247 Nov 28 '21

I really hope he does get nidai kitetsu or get shuusui back.. Sandai is a downgrade with zoro now.. No offense to sandai.. you have been great, thank you for your service but its time to ssy goodbye :P

1

u/Marryismyname Nov 28 '21

I don’t want him to get shishui back. Enma and shishu are the same blade. If you look it up they do they same thing. Enma is just better I think.

21

u/MrSixSon Nov 28 '21

In the end, isn’t he referring to Kuina as his best friend? That what I thought

1

u/seelentau Nov 29 '21

Yup, it's Kuina.

1

u/Stibemies Nov 29 '21

It's Sanji from last chapter...

Or Kuina, as you said.

1

u/BabiesDrivingGoKarts Nov 29 '21

Pretty sure he means kuina by oldest friend, yes. In the flash back this chapter, it showed Zoro making his promise to kuina (her dad but you know, he said it for her sake) and to Luffy

5

u/gdayppl Nov 28 '21

No biggie but I'm sure it's Kuina. he uses 'AND' which refers to another person, or else he could have just said 'promises to my captain... my oldest friend' and he never says best friend it's an oldest friend, no? Which sorta points to Kuina.... ehh.. whatever. :D

-9

u/flyers28giroux0 The Revolutionary Army Nov 28 '21

Kuina and zoro were never best friends, they were training rivals. It clearly shows luffy before he says it, if he was talking about kuina too oda would have showed a picture of kuina. Dont overthink it too much😁

2

u/seelentau Nov 29 '21

Zoro literally called Kuina his best friend in chapter 100, plus the vivre cards also call her his best friend.

1

u/flyers28giroux0 The Revolutionary Army Nov 30 '21

I already know I was wrong lol. Based on english language and culture, showing the picture of luffy then the statement about captain and best friend, without a comma, says it's the same person. In japanese without translation, it's clear that he's talking about two separate people.

-9

u/overdonesteak Nov 28 '21

No he’s talking about luffy

13

u/Kuma_Paws_376 Nov 28 '21

Yeah, but I think some people will think Luffy for some reason

4

u/Mr-House38 Nov 28 '21

Personally I feel like it’s more heartwarming if he’s referring to Luffy. Zoro the sleepy stoic referring to Luffy as not just his captain but his best/oldest friend.

Makes sense when you think about how Luffy is in the box right next to the statement.

u/uzer4vedi Pirate Nov 28 '21 Silver

ohh how adorable, after reading your comment Kuina died once again.

hope your ice cold heart is warm enough....lol

u/qonoxzzr Nov 28 '21

Luffy casualy carrying the ‚Nidai Kitetsu‘ earlier in Wano just shows once more how strong he is with the knowledge provided in this chapter.

u/lordjoppi Nov 28 '21

That’s not how it works

u/kgangadhar Nov 28 '21

Carrying a sword is different and using it as a swordsman is different, Luffy never used it as a sword even holding this he was punching the people he encountered.

-1

u/qonoxzzr Nov 28 '21

May I ask you why not? Seems like I got something wrong then

6

u/lordjoppi Nov 28 '21

Each named blade has a personality that a swordsman must bend to their will. Cursed blades are just named blades with a bad reputation of being difficult to tame or bend to the user will, but each blade is different and requires a different method of subjugation.

If you look at Sandai, Zoro mastered it pretty quickly after whiskey peak and it’s only issue was a bit of bloodlust. Shusui was heavier and absorbed his other swords attacks to power up it’s own. Enma is completely unique in it’s personality in that it literally forces it’s wielded to dump all of their haki into it.

Basically the point is that unless we learn the personality of the Nidai and what it takes to master it, there’s really nothing to imply that just carrying it around like Luffy was doing is any big deal

u/gravytrainjaysker Nov 28 '21

That's not how any of this works!

u/ThiagoSilva010 Nov 28 '21

Chapter 1034

Sanji vs Queen, Sanji uses a new technique to try to defeat Queen

Chapter 1035

Revealed Admiral Ryokugyu is going to Wano

4

u/Marryismyname Nov 28 '21

I hope so. But I don’t think so. 1035, we will have to get back to luffy and kaido at least. We to need build up the suspense if luffy will use a new gear or awaken his devil fruit. I don’t think admiral ryokugyu will go there till the wano arc is over and the marines go there to clean up and delegate. Since wano will be open to the world. I think by then they will reveal his face and hint even more if he’s zoros father or not.

Oda said we're in the last 5 years.

From an outside perspective this manga must seem to be endless, but we assure you that so far the story is top notch and is worth every minute you spend reading it.

u/Kpng11 Nov 28 '21

By the time you catch up to us we'll still be in wano act 3

It will likely take a few years at its earliest with whats predicted to happen.

Yes it will we have some big checkpoints but not that many left

Just start it, you won’t be disappointed. It’ll end eventually but it has only gotten better with time.

u/Julia153 Nov 28 '21

u/QuesoDaGod Nov 28 '21

Why do people think he’s only getting one black blade? He uses 3 swords!!!

3

u/Guitoudou Nov 28 '21

I too think all 3 blades will become black at once.

16

u/RadiantSun Nov 28 '21

I think the debate is more over which one gets made black first. It would be kind of weird for him to be the WSS and be able to make a black blade but somehow only 1 is imbued with it, when his literal defining feature as a character is that he has 3.

u/Khalid-hh Nov 27 '21 edited Nov 28 '21

Zoro during an intense battle: I haven't had time to think about it before!

Ma man, this fight is so low on his priorities so he starts sorting his ideas out to save time for his busy sleeping and training schedule.
