[Theory] One Piece – Yamato And The Nitoryu Style

One Piece chapter 970 - Oden cuts Kaido

With Yamato resolving to become Kozuki Oden, could they become a Nitoryu user? Yamato has already donned a style similar to Oden’s in terms of their outfit and if they had two blades, I believe they would also wield them. Just like Oden, Yamato wouldn’t need to follow a set Nitoryu style and could develop their own. Yamato has already shown they have experience with their Kanabō and if they were to attain two blades, they could incorporate their existing fighting style through the swords to develop their own variation of Nitoryu, just like Oden.

Once Yamato and Momonosuke befriend each other, I wonder if Momonosuke will eventually bestow onto Yamato, the Ame no Habakiri. At this point in time, Momonosuke does not believe he is ready to wield it and given their current conflict with the Beast Pirates and Big Mom, Momonosuke may end up offering the blade that once belonged to his father, Oden, to Yamato as a weapon to wield against Kaido and Orochi.

[Analysis] One Piece – Yamato

One Piece - Yamato

Through the span of two chapters, Yamato has become an immensely fascinating character whose entrance beckons curiosity. Not only did Yamato arrive with a memorable and glorious entrance but the potential capacity Yamato has for development and story has left a marked impression on her as a character.

One Piece Chapter 970 – Oden VS Kaido

One Piece chapter 970 - Oden and the Nine Red Scabbards VS The Beast Pirates

Even Kaido was afraid of Oden

Based on the events that happened, it is apparent that Oden overwhelmed Kaido and if not for Orochi’s deceptive tactics, it is likely that Kaido would have suffered more than just that wound. But unfortunately war involves more than singular battles with an outcome instead decided by the overall usage of the pieces available for use. Orochi, as cowardly as he may be, took of advantage of Oden’s heart and used the Mane Mane no Mi to mentally and emotionally distract Oden. That moment in which Oden turned his back on Kaido created a blind spot in which Kaido exploited to land the deciding blow. At the end of it all, Orochi knew Oden’s heart too well and took advantage of it to give Kaido the edge in that battle. The difference between the past and the current events is Orochi’s inability to even conceive what type of person Luffy is. And that is where Kaido and Orochi have overestimated themselves, thinking that they know Monkey D. Luffy.

One Piece Chapter 965-969 – Oden And Roger

One Piece chapter 966 - Roger, Whitebeard and Oden

The meeting that would eventually lead to the age of the Pirates…

Experiencing the world and sharing in an adventure destined to change the fate of an era, Oden clears open a path forward on which the eventual Pirate King would map their journey on. The guide stones of the past left behind by a civilisation erased from history lead the adventurers subject to their voices onto a road toward a destination filled with questions to answers ultimately leaving behind an expectation on those choosing to take up “their” will. With the world against them and the truth buried within the shadows of the past motioned by strings intent on keeping whats hidden sealed away, the story of those fighting to achieve freedom find themselves purposed with the responsibility of carrying the weight of a hidden time. Along with Roger who expressed himself through his legacy, the man known as Kozuki Oden now walks forward to save his nation about to dye history with the expression of his adventure and heart.

One Piece Chapter 964 – The World Beyond The Borders

One Piece Chapter 964 - Oden's desperation to see the world beyond Wano Kuni

The desire for the unknown

Oden’s desperation for adventure borderlines Luffy’s excitement for it. Despite the price of its admission, their obsession towards such an unfiltered experience overwhelms any sort of rationale surrounding the decision. Unconcerned of any consequence, the path forward for such individuals is one solely focused on the sight before them. If experiencing the world meant leaving the nation illegally, stowing aboard a ship uninterested in taking you and holding onto a chain dragged across the ocean for three days, an individual like Oden would wholeheartedly throw himself at such an opportunity which is exactly what Oden did. That is just how much the desire to adventure means to individuals like Oden.

One Piece chapter 963 - Oden and Edward's meeting

And so the two meet and share an electrifying greeting

And so the wheels of fate turn on the path called life towards a destination intertwined with adventure, realisation, misery, sorrow and death. The meeting that set in motion the events leading up to the current events where legends were created and the hungering arms of greed motioned towards its endless desire for what it perceives as satisfaction. A meeting longed for by Oden whom sought a bridge towards the world outside of Wano Kuni. And with his overwhelming joy conveyed through his welcoming strike, he proposes his intention to join the crew of the Whitebeard Pirates.

One Piece Chapter 962 – Oden’s Journey Across Wano Kuni

One Piece chapter 962 - Oden VS Ashura Douji

What an overwhelming presence…

We all need a little crazy and in our blood and it looks like Kozuki Oden has that pumping throughout his body. To not only see a solution where others see impossibility, he has a natural charisma elevated by his strength to inspire others to want to believe in something different from their boxed perspective. Despite his obvious overbearing personality and lack of ability to conform to societal standards, when one truly looks at him, they can’t help but react to the overwhelming conviction exuding from him.

One Piece Chapter 961 – The Mountain God Incident

One Piece chapter 961 - Oden VS Mountain God

I wonder if we will see that White Boar baby in the current time now that decades have past since then

To think everything Oden did was to force his father into a corner where he had no choice but to officially disown Oden. All in order to free himself from the boundaries Wano Kuni imposes on him. Oden deliberately prevented Kin’emon from revealing the truth and bore the disdain and blame from the Flower Capital citizens affected by the Mountain God incident. Was Oden driven by some deeper purpose attached to the history of Wano Kuni and their association to the Ancient Civilisation or was Oden genuinely constricted by the borders of Wano Kuni?

One Piece Chapter 960 – Kozuki Oden

One Piece chapter 960 - Kozuki Oden

That hair style of his is seriously captivating – how does he get so flat?

Kozuki Oden was portrayed as quite the thug in this chapter, one seemingly not warranting any shred of compassion or support. I presume this was intentional by Oda-sensei as he had only revealed Oden filtered through the eyes and mouth’s of others. I would wager that exactly like Hiyori when she was first introduced as Komurasaki with an antagonistic lense, Oda-sensei is doing the exact same thing with Oden where whatever he does is viewed negatively by the those commenting on him and verbally painting his social image. Beyond such subjective analytics, Oden may very well be completely different to how he has been “portrayed” by the public of Wano Kuni. This does seem like the path the story is headed towards with Wano Kuni finally having an opportunity to see the true Oden.
