[Analysis] One Piece – The World Government’s Move On Wano

One Piece Chapter 1028 - The World Government moves to claim Wano

With World Government’s move to claim Wano in the case of Kaido’s defeat, they have revealed their fear for the nation that has remained independent for the past 800+ years. The World Government have sensed an opportunity and wish to exploit it. With that said, how do they seek entry into Wano Kuni? Do the ships intend to enter from the front – Mogura Port – where defense is thinned or from the back?

[Analysis] One Piece – Onigashima: Straw Hat Pirates VS Beast Pirates

One Piece Onigashima - Straw Hat Pirates VS Beast Pirates

The underlying theme behind the deconstruction of the Beast Pirates is the realignment of their forces allegiance. What initially began as a group of fighters that constituted two pirate crews, a few Samurai, a ninja and the Mink turned into hundreds than an army of thousands before the raid on Onigashima. Such a theme carried forward through the story of Onigashima with it still continuing. The disparity in numbers between the two forces continues to close with the Samurai Rebellion on the path to growing larger than the Beast Pirates force. It has been set-up to happen. And it will happen. The whole Onigashima story has been building up toward Luffy taking Yamato away from Kaido.

[Theory] One Piece – King And Rocks

One Piece chapter 957 - The Rocks Pirates Jolly Roger

With the revelation of the Lunarian people and their ability to burst into flames, the Rocks Pirates Jolly Roger has me wondering, was Xebec D. Rocks a member of the Lunarian race? Or did he take an interest in them? The Jolly Roger representing the Rocks Pirates (and Rocks in particular) is that of a red skull that appears to be flaming. Why such imagery? With the knowledge of the Lunarian people and what they could do, that imagery can be interpreted in a curious context, one that see Rocks connected to the Lunarian people. Is this why Rocks was so interested in the secrets of the world and becoming King of it? Because he felt the status his people once held was robbed from them?

[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.

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,

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).

One Piece Chapter 1018 – Jinbe VS Who’s Who: The Heart Of A Fish-Man

One Piece chapter 1018 - Jinbe VS Who's-Who

What a exhilarating display of power, technique and composure by Jinbe. I am left in awe. To handle the six forms of the Cipher Pol secret arts and to defend, evade and then counter them. Jinbe is a master for a reason. Who’s Who has been utterly bested. The battle is over but Who’s Who will not be killed by Jinbe as the CP-0 expect. And unbeknownst to the CP-0, there are others present on Onigashima that possess more dangerous knowledge of the secrets hidden in the past that the World Government wishes kept buried (Momonosuke, Yamato, Kaido and Robin).

One Piece Chapter 1017 – Jinbe VS Who’s Who: Grudge

One Piece chapter 1017 - Jinbe VS Who's Who

What an interesting revelation conveyed through Who’s Who’s circumstances at the end of the chapter. A former CP-9 agent that existed as a rival to Rob Lucci until the incident that led to the loss of the Gomu Gomu no Mi 12 years ago. Seemingly as Who’s Who was guarding the ship the Gomu Gomu no Mi was kept on, a pirate crew attacked (Red Haired Pirates) and made off with the fruit. Why did the Gomu Gomu no Mi need to be protected by the World Government and why was it so important that the failure to protect it led to Who’s Who’s imprisonment? It’s odd. Wasn’t the Gomu Gomu no Mi just a random Devil Fruit with seemingly no apparent overwhelming qualities? If that is not the case, does the true powers of the Gomu Gomu no Mi reveal itself when the fruit is awakened? Or was the fruit being guarded merely because Im had a vision or feeling that the Gomu Gomu no Mi would eventually lead to the World Governments downfall?

One Piece Chapter 1016 – Nami VS Ulti: Electric Reverberation

One Piece chapter 1016 - Nami taken down Ulti with Usopp and Zeus's assistance

When it comes to protecting that which she cares for, Nami is incredibly courageous and determined. And with the addition of Zeus as her aide in channeling her powers and analytical skills, Nami now has the means to combat the opponents within the New World. In face of Ulti who continues to threaten Tama, Nami unleashes. The comments Nami directed at Ulti during their prior encounter reverberates across the castle interior and right through Ulti. Nami’s actions have conveyed exactly how serious she was. If you get on her bad side, be prepared for the consequences. Ulti underestimated her opponents and now pays the price with a defeat. The Tobi Roppo have been reduced to half their original number and the oh-so certain outcome from the CP-0’s perspective is beginning to be coloured in a shade of suspense. The tides are about to turn.
