[Analysis] One Piece – Kurozumi Orochi: The Mastermind Of Wano’s Ruin

One Piece Episode 927 - Orochi in his Yamata no Orochi form

Despite being Shogun, Orochi never sought to rule Wano, his intention was always to bring Wano to ruin while enjoying himself in the process. And in that regard, he was immensely successful. Orochi brought the Kozuki name to the point where it was ridiculed and vilified. When you really look at how Wano fell into devastation and had its peoples’ resolve depleted to the point of hopelessness, you come to recognise how systematic Orochi was in deconstructing the aspects of Wano that represented its identity. From the nations honor, to the pride of its people, to the symbolism of the Samurai and to the hope embodied within the Kozuki name. Orochi was the antagonist Wano created. And when he came into power, he desired revenge.

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 106 – Selene VS Ignia: Distortion

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 106 - Selene arrives to stop Ignia

Ignia’s abrupt entrance within the conflict between Fairy Tail and Diabolos reveals itself to be based on an alliance comprised of Ignia and Dogramag. A plan set in motion between the two sometime before Dogramag’s fall with Dogramag taking it upon himself to utilise the magic of Elefseria’s human heart to move forward the intentions of Ignia. Dogramag didn’t have the opportunity to share his ideas with Ignia before he died but Ignia eventually sensed a disturbance and paid the Labyrinth of Dogramag a visit. Ignia discovered what Dogramag left behind which at this point does not appear to require the human heart of Elefseria anymore. Selene confronted Ignia but was unable to stop him from destroying the heart and when she expressed her reasoning behind her opposition to him, Ignia retorts with the Age of Dragons is “only just beginning”. This response from Ignia suggest the plan Dogramag and he constructed involves a potential revival of Dragons. What did Dogramag do with Elefseria’s heart and how does Ignia intend to revive the Dragons?

[Analysis] Edens Zero – Labilia: The Girl Who Lost Herself In Her Affection

Edens Zero Chapter 178 - Rebecca reaches out to Labilia as a friend

I was indifferent to Labilia’s character initially but after chapter 178, I began to see her in a completely new light. That chapter not only highlighted Rebecca’s embracing self but it also recontextualized the entire relationship Labilia and Rebecca share.

Since their first time interacting with each other, they were bonded as B-cubers. The relationship may have been a toxic and negative one on the surface but with Labilia’s side of the story now being told, we have come to understand to an extent what was really going on with her. Labilia never meant malice through her actions but her love had just become too twisted from her confused mind. She couldn’t comprehend Rebecca and within that fog, she began to express her feelings for Rebecca in unorthodox ways.

[Analysis] One Piece – The Okuchi No Makami And Its Role As Guardian Deity Of Wano

One Piece Chapter 1025 - Yamato defends against Kaido

Zoan Devil Fruits have been charactertized in a different context relative to their Paramecia and Logia counterparts. Rather than just possessing and imbuing power, Zoan Devil Fruits also possess a will of their own and are able to express themselves in ways impossible for the Paramecia and Logia Devil Fruits. Due to having a will, inanimate objects or lifeless mediums possessing no will of their own are able to become host for the Zoan Devil Fruits such as guns, swords, teapots or gaseous slimes. Life is able to be established within these mediums due to the nature of Zoan Devil Fruits. Further, it is also implied that the Zoan Devil Fruits have some power over deciding who consumes them. The Nika Fruit evaded the World Government for over 800 years because it did not want to fall into their hands. With that in mind, could the Okuchi no Makami Fruit have chosen Yamato to be its user for specific reasons?

[Theory] Edens Zero – How Witch Can Return Using The Chronophage

Edens Zero Chapter 164 - Witch cover page

One of the most fascinating and creative aspects of Edens Zero are the existence of Chronophages which presents a unique spin on the time-travel mechanic popular in science fiction stories. Rather than tethering space and time into one encapsulating concept where time overarches all space, the Chronophage distort that reality and detaches time from the overall space, restricting it to just the space in their proximity. What this allows for are time-travel instances that don’t drag the whole world setting along with its momentum. It introduces a more manageable mechanic existing outside time paradoxes that is just as fascinating as general time travel if not more. You can have two version of a character present in the same time or a planet saved from the corruption of insatiable greed by turning its present state into a past form. Additionally, another event that is theoretically possible using the nature of the Chronophage is having a fallen character return back into the story i.e. Witch.

[Theory] Edens Zero – Was Pino Created On Granbell?

Edens Zero Chapter 179 - Holy notes Pino's relevance

Pino is one of the most mysterious characters in Edens Zero. In addition to her lost memory, there is also her enigmatic origins and the reserved focus Mashima-sensei has been handling Pino with throughout the story so far. It has been stated that Ziggy created her but if that was the case, why has Ziggy not created any more anti-bots? He is an android, so he surely must know the process involved in creating an anti-bot unless there are reasons he cannot create anti-bots.

[Theory] Edens Zero – Holy: Blooming Life

Edens Zero - The mystery of Holy

The positions in which Holy and the Edens Zero exist conveys a relationship dyed in antagonism. Holy is an agent of the Oración Seis Interstellar which by extension of their affiliation operates in opposition to the Edens Zero whom is commanded by the most recent addition to the Oración Seis Galáctica, Shiki. The disapproval in the weight behind Freedom over Order is what creates the division between the Oración Seis Interstellar and the Oración Seis Galáctica. Yet for all of the division, could there exist a member of the Oración Seis Interstellar that perceives a path beyond the surface level conflict? And could this member be Holy who may potentially be older than anyone else realises?

[Theory] One Piece – The DEVIL Fruit Of Legend

One Piece chapter 978 - Onigashima Island with the massive Ancient Giant skull and the massive blade stuck in the ground

With the revelation in chapter 1037 hinting toward a Legendary Devil Fruit that brought much concern to the World Government that they sought to hide it’s real name from the world and its history, certain elements in One Piece are now painted in a different light. Specifically elements that involve certain beings and Islands. Why did the World Government seek to erase this Devil Fruit’s name and why are they so afraid of it “awakening”? Do they fear this Devil Fruit as a weapon the Ancient Civilisation of the past used? The development leaves many questions but it also establishes the a very real connection the current events in the Wano Kuni Arc have to the wars engaged between the Ancient Civilisation and the World Government of the past.

Edens Zero Chapter 174 – Feather: Meeting Shiki

Edens Zero Chapter 174 - Shiki and Feather meet

The mechanics behind the Eye of God power leaves much mystery in it’s wake. How does it function? How does it analyse information? And how does it assist in constructing a path forward for the user? It’s natural operation seems straight forward – it receives information and uses that to predict the future. When defining the type of information it uses in its analysis, it becomes incredibly more fascinating – what form does that information take? Does the Eye of God power act on general information or specific? It likely overlaps between the two with seemingly more emphasis to the general interpretation based on the overarching nature of the power. The fact that Shiki was able to escape Feather’s “sight” implies the rigidity in its interpretation. A reasonable person may have behaved in the manner Feather predicted but after her meeting with Shiki, she now knows that Shiki isn’t someone ordinary. Feather’s Eye of God power going forward will continue to stumble when attempting to predict Shiki’s next action.

[Analysis] Edens Zero – Rebecca Bluegarden: The Girl Who Leapt Through Space, Time & Reality

Edens Zero - Rebecca Bluegarden by Hiro Mashima

Within the story of Edens Zero, one of the major devices tying together the numerous threads existing, is, alongside Shiki, the girl who saved him from his secluded fate, Rebecca Bluegarden. Together, as the mysteries within Edens Zero unfold, the relevance attached to these two characters increase. Their stories move forward as the core driving force to the eventual revelations involving Mother and the enigmatic cliff-hanger volume one of Edens Zero left the story at with it peaking at the world 20,000 years in the future. Threads that have been set-up in past arcs are slowly revealing their connection to the present and future events. Through Rebecca and through Shiki, impossible will become just a door to step through.
