[Theory] One Piece – Yamato’s Saviors

One Piece chapter 1024 - Yamato is saved by the three Samurai

Yamato in his past when chained by Kaido and locked up in the Sacred cave to starve was saved by three Samurai who referred to themselves by no name but upon closer inspection, it appears they may have been prominent figures in Wano Kuni. Kaido’s comment about them being powerful swordsman and his intent to recruit them indicates the status of those Samurai. At the time of Kaido’s attack on Wano Kuni, all the Daimyo of the regions were defeated and stripped of their power. Oden and his Samurai challenged the Beast Pirates but ultimately lost to Orochi’s schemes. Sukiyuki disappeared while Orochi was present in the Flower Capital and was presumably killed. Yasuie received a message from Oden and chose to protect the Kozuki family. After losing his position as Daimyo, Yasuie then chose to remain among the people to help them through the darkness engulfing Wano. As for the rest of the Daimyo, which total three, they all challenged Kaido and lost. What happened to those three Daimyo after they lost to Kaido? Answering that question establishes the possibility of who Yamato’s saviors really were.

One Piece Chapter 1024 – Yamato VS Kaido: Spirit Of A Samurai

One Piece chapter 1024 - Yamato and Kaido clash

The fight rages. A father advances. A son weights through the multitude of emotions swelling up inside them. Illuminated by the light of a full moon, the two reflect back on their relations and expose their intentions through the actions they express. The future they each seek, conflicts. And present at such a convergence, they clash. As Yamato comes to terms with their father’s rejection of their dreams, he recalls memories of his past where he met people who not only believed in him but accepted him and his dreams. Yamato wants to be a Samurai and inspired was he by the legendary warriors that gave their lives for the future. Alongside Oden were the unnamed Samurai that saved Yamato. And on him, those Samurai placed their hope to carry their wills into the future where Wano Kuni could be saved. The burden Yamato chose to carry was not only his own desires but that of the nameless Samurai and Kozuki Oden. They believed in him and he has chosen to believe in himself too. The spirit of the Samurai burns radiantly within the resolve of Yamato.

[Theory] One Piece – Yamato And The Lunarian People

One Piece chapter 1016 - Yamato facing off against Kaido alone

Ever since King’s introduction I have wondered how Kaido came across him. How did the two meet and was King the only Lunarian member Kaido encountered? When Yamato was introduced, I wondered if Yamato’s mother was part of the same race as King. There isn’t anything definitive to suggest so but with every chapter than elapses with Yamato’s mother omitted, I grow ever curious wondering if her role within the story is being saved for a major reveal. If there was a faction that would have another Lunarian member existing within it, it would be the Beast Pirates. King is likely not the sole survivor of the race. Yamato’s mother may not be important or she may be incredibly important. What is certain is that there existed a person intimate with Kaido and Yamato that existed. She does not have to be mentioned for the audience to be aware that Yamato had a mother and Kaido a partner. The foreshadowing exist naturally with the potential to track forward in a myriad of directions.

One Piece Chapter 1023 – Passion. Will. Heart. Conviction.

One Piece chapter 1023 - Momonosuke's transforms into his Dragon form after being aged up

That chapter. My goodness that chapter. What an unbelievably incredibly electrifying read. I loved it. My body was not ready for how amped up it would now be. Ahhh, how glorious. The threads of the journey unfolding throughout the manga have now found themselves converging at a point tying together a new thread on which the path forward has been constructed. The satisfying nature of payoff is a magical experience in how something so consuming and defined can yet surprise the avenues of the mind when the moment is presented in the manner as it was in this chapter. Certain elements were expected but the way they aligned and cascaded alongside each other, such a feeling evoked is indescribable. But if a word was to be placed reflecting the spirit of its conveyance – exhilarating,

[Analysis] One Piece – The Race That Existed Atop The Red Line

One Piece chapter 1022 - Marco reveals the race King belongs to used to exist atop the Red Line

Long ago in the past, there existed people who lived atop the Red Line that could generate flames from their body. After certain events occurred, these people were ‘lost in the mists of time’ and currently the only member of this race shown is King the Wildfire. Taking into account what we know about this race, we can extrapolate a few pieces of information about this race: they weren’t on friendly terms with the Tenryuubito and due to likely not wanting to give up their home, they were targeted and brought to the edge of extinction. Few may have escaped by abandoning their home but they lost to what is now the World Government. Marijoa may also have been the location of this races homeland. Like other shadows the World Government wishes to hide, they buried knowledge of such a race in the darkness of time, omitting them from the history they wish known.

One Piece Chapter 1022 – Zoro & Sanji VS King & Queen: Wings

One Piece chapter 1022 - Zoro and Sanji VS King and Queen

The Wano Kuni Arc is building up as the representation of the Straw Hat Pirates message to the world. Once Kaido is defeated and Big Mom obstructed, the world will know in no uncertain terms that the Straw Hat Pirates have achieved what no one before them have. They challenged the Yonko and won. Ever since the great Pirate Age began and the Yonko were formed, none of them were completely defeated. Whitebeard died but he didn’t lose, not really. What Whitebeard set in motion will ultimately result in the downfall of the World Government. Luffy and the wings that support him will undoubtedly become the Pirates closest to the One Piece once Kaido is defeated and they acquires the third Road Poneglyph.

One Piece Chapter 1021 - Robin's Demon Bloom takes out Black Maria

One Piece Chapter 1021 – Robin VS Black Maria: Demonic Bloom

Vigilant one should be in the presence of a will backed into a corner. Expectations can often become the debilitating web ensnaring ones judgment. Such was the case for Black Maria who seduced herself with her own ego, delusion and power. The projection she created dominated her perspective and shackled her foresight. Caution evaporated and left imprudence to pilot her actions. So entrenched was Black Maria by her arrogance, the thought of being overwhelmed by Robin became an impossibility. And within that absence of anticipation, a blind spot was spawned. Black Maria faced impossibility and could do little against the crumbling of her judgment. She was wrong and within her psychological descent, the terror known as “Devil Child” Robin overwhelmed Black Maria. Robin has won. And the Beast Pirates suffer another critical blow.

One Piece Chapter 1020 – Robin VS Black Maria: Reflection Of Bonds

One Piece chapter 1020 - Robin and Brook evade Black Maria's atacks

Enigmatic, introverted and reserved, Robin may not always be frank with her feelings but when it comes to living the life saved by the Straw Hat Pirates, she is valorously expressive about her gratitude. It may not be in words but her actions speak just as loudly if not more so. Robin has lived a life where she was forced to detach herself from the construct of society and exist as a independent player within the shadows. Camaraderie and fellowship were nonexistent within such a world for Robin. That is, until she met Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates. Robin’s perspective and heart changed since her encounter with them. The joy she now feels is a direct result of the connections she has made with her fellow nakama. Robin realises she is not living life alone, she has others which she can live alongside. As a result, when those bonds are challenged, she won’t sit idly by and let others undermine those she cares about. Robin is aware that ignorance is bliss but she is also aware that vengeance is a dish best served cold and that is exactly what Black Maria has coming for her. The Devil Child has awakened and with it, the Lotus will bloom.

[Theory] One Piece – Yamato’s Devil Fruit (Part 2)

Edit: Chapter 1020 reveals that Yamato has the Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Okuchi no Makami.

I love how Yamato has been causing problems for Kaido since Oden’s execution. Even with being shackled, imprisoned to one Island for decades, and beaten each time after a challenge, Yamato never once conceded to Kaido’s plans for him. Rather Yamato’s actions were a constant reminder to Kaido that he didn’t defeat Oden and that he isn’t as sovereign as he would like himself to believe. Kaido confirms that Yamato had consumed a Devil Fruit that he viewed as valuable, one he didn’t intend for Yamato to eat. The visual appearance of Yamato’s current form may give us some ideas as to what the Devil Fruit is.

One Piece Chapter 1019 – Franky VS Sasaki: Unforeseen

One Piece chapter 1019 - Franky uses Radical Beam on Sasaki

Franky has certainly primed himself into a formidable force with the advancements of his research and application of his passion. It was by no means a pretty win for Franky but a win regardless. General Franky was damaged. Franken Blade was broken. Frank’s cola has been depleted. But Sasaki now lies unconscious on the floor bested by Franky. Another of the Beast Pirates Tobi Roppo has been defeated and only one more remains (not including Drake and discounting Page One returning to the fight).
