    The only thing lord potato starch would be doing in that five versus one scenario would be foreseeing just how much his ass is about to be beaten. There is probably no one i would bet on in a five against one among equals. Maybe if someone in OP turns out to have ze warudo type powers, otherwise it is just too poor odds

    Its kinda sad to see how much they trusted family and how that bit them in the ass.

    Yeah but I was also talking about nom-strawhat involvement.

    Like they're (the ppl, the samurai, hell even the pirates) not rounding up the likes of King, Queen, Jack, Sasaki, etc. It would be a pretty dumb decision.





    We've seen pirate raid easy prey and bail when its get difficult. But they would need to be so obsessed with a country with hard access, several elite fighters and strong allies. There are dozens of places easier then this. Like that island Drake took over by himself. I guess they could have more pride then anyone we've seen before but I feel the fear from seeing Kaido lose would be their biggest take away.
    Given the size of Wano I still find it hard that they would even leave the country when they could retreat to so many other places.


    First time Kaido came Orochi opened the country and made them cooperate similar thing with Kidd. Whitebeard and Luffy boat crashed, Big Mom's didnt make i. The only one that made it easy was Law but he has a submarine that avoids the difficulties of navigation.

    Navigating dozens of ships to properly reinvade would be a big operation. Its not so much that its impossible just that its so difficult its not something to do on a whim.
    Deciding to retake Wano would not be done on a whim.


    But they would be kick out from Wano and biding their time to return to it. Not just be chilling there. Wouldnt it be simpler to just invade a weak country if conquering a place is that important to them?
    Like I said before I find it to be a little unlikely this happens unless Luffy and all the other allies literally walk Kaido off the island.



    I guess they could but the constant mention of betrayal by kaido, the way people keep turning in this battle and the way he recuits people I feel the flimsiness of the bond of that crew has been a theme. Even Sengoku mentioning they are a barbaric bunch hold by Kaido's strength.
    Well its not like I'm saying loyalty will keep them together.




    I mean I dont think expecting to lose if for example Cracker, Pespero and Smoothie decided to take him on is selling his strength short. He's quite powerful and win any 1 v 1 in the crew. I just dont expect him to take on that many powerful opponent at once as I would expect it more from yonkos or admirals.
    I jist dont see him losing to them.




    Are we talking in-universe or what Oda would do? Because I dont think Big Mom is gonna lose her crew.
    In universe in a hypothetical where Big Mom is not in the picture. Let's say assumed dead.

    Katakuri hasnt exactly shown much interest in being in charge. Just a a desire to protect his family and great honour. Whereas someone like Pespero seems a lot more interesting in making the big decisions. I dont see much to assume he would beat him senseless to be the one making the decisions. And I imiagine Pespero with the ability to play dirty to get his ways.
    To me this is all speculation. There's no reason to say Katakuri hasn't expressed interest in leading. Why would he? Big Mom is still there. Peros hasn't shown any interest. He's been the most loyal to Big Mom.


    I mean you dont have to give just because you are weaker. I imagine a internal conflict would involve more then that. Like who has the best decision making and choosing when best to attack and all that or even making deals but I guess we can just go with plain strongest is leader.
    I'm pretty sure of given a vote who would best lead them Katakuri wins in a landslide.

    Mayne I'm forgetting something about the escape from WCI.

    Pekoms went sulong and Carrot went sulong to help the strawhats escape. Why didn't Pedro go sulong again? You know before he blew himself up?

    He could've went sulong and fought Peros first before kill/murder.

    On another site. A poster stated that in an Interview, Oda stated Whitebeard was holding back the whole time during MF. Anyone have a link to this interview?

    More like they were so arrogant they couldn't see what was right in front of their faces. Law obviously wanted nothing to do with them. He even told Caesar not to tell Joker he was there, which I'm sure Monet immediately told Doffy.

    Even with information from Monet that Law was, if not openly, at least obviously doing SOMETHING against the Family, Doffy chose to let him stay there doing whatever he was doing all that time, and STILL deluded himself into thinking Law had just now decided to betray him. These people live in a totally different world than everyone else.

    Probably asked this before but where's the "Ace" of Kaido's crew? His top performers? Jack, Queen, King, but no Ace.

    It wouldn't bother me if Oda wasn't following the theme so closely that the tobbi roppo's names are a bunch of card games and that Doffy was originally intended to be a part of that crew as Kaido's "Joker"

    There's already the running theory that Jack more recently gained that title compared to Queen and King so naturally you'd wonder what about the Ace title.

    I wouldn't have even minded if Oda had somehow addressed that when Ace actually went to Wano but instead he befriended Yamato who from recent chapters still doesn't seem like Kaido ever had him in mind to be a part of his crew or be that trusted to hold such a title.

    So the whole Ace thing is like a dangling loose thread slightly bothering me. Especially if it goes unacknowledged in a Kaido flashback.

    Also no character actually named Wildcard. I recall once or twice a character being referred to one but nobody outright named Wildcard. C'mon Oda, guess that was to direct?

    I think the most natural answer to this is that Number 1 is special in some way and the "Ace" of the card deck scheme.
    Wano predictions: There will be 5 acts; All Straw Hats will get fights, some in Act 4; Big Mom Pirates will arrive; Carrot will have her moment, but won't join; Yamato will be a Kouzuki samurai and Wano's Guardian; Shanks will visit Luffy in Act 5; Next arc is Mary Geoise.

    Number 1 of the numbers? I guess maybe.

    They've been such a non-factor and totally absent its weird. I could only guess they would be the obstacle to be part of the focus of a possible act 4 (assuming the tobiroppo and all stars don't get up after losing, assuming the all stars lose just as fast).

    I assume since there's a character name Ace. Oda rather avoid it.

    Yeah but even then Oda pretty much went out of his way to work in Doffy being also known as Joker in to his connection to Kaido and the Beast Pirates based off his original intentions with the character.

    Cuz that makes me think if Ace's name was Jack would we not have a Jack in the Beast pirates?


    I would think following the theme he'd come up with something for the Ace title/character but who knows arc isn't over yet.

    I mean at best we might learn Kaido was gonna make Ace as a commander if he was there when he attacked but thats about it I expect.

    What could be Eustass Kidd's role after Wano? His crew, outside of him and Killer, doesn't stack up with Luffy's. When he was introduced back in Sabaody, I was hoping in the post-timeskip OP he would be a major arc antagonist.

    This is one of those questions I recon Oda is struggling with too. It's already common knowledge the Supernovas weren't planned for Sabaody (at least not all of them) so it's possible he thought up Kid on the fly, the guy made a bigger impact than expected and now we're stuck with a powerful rival with no purpose in the story.

    I think his main goal will still be the One Piece, and at some point nearing Raftel him and his crew might clash with the Strawhats (one-sided as that fight will be). There's also the question of Killer's smile fruit affliction. I can't see Oda leaving all the people of Ebisu Town afflicted with that, it would be too cruel for One Piece. If Chopper devices a medicine then Killer should get it too and then the Kid Pirates owe them a debt. That could be used later on to justify Kid helping the Strawhats, maybe in the upcoming war. Another possibility is if the Strawhats go seek Vegapunk for a cure, then Kid might tag along.

    I see it as Vegapunk personally coming to Wano with escorts to cure Smile victims. After all it's going to get it's borders opened isn't it?

    I just don't see the smile affliction being undone.

    Its already happened and those afflicted just have to live with it and move on like any other.

    If so might as well undo gifters too.

    So question. Is there any good place I can import the Japanese One Piece Volumes to Sweden, or read the Japanese manga online legally? I want to get back to learning Japanese, and while I've heard One Piece isn't the best series for that it's the one manga I've loved and re-read more than any other. It'd be fun to have just one or two volumes so I can see the original for myself.

    I buy the volumes from the Japanese amazon site (amazon.co.jp), works fine for me.
    1 Volume costs ~400-500 yen, and I can usually buy 6 volumes of manga (from various series) every month for ~4000-5000 yen (~400-500 SEK) total including shipping etc.
    Have been buying from there for close to 4 years now with very few problems.

    That sounds perfect, thank you!

    Now to decide what volumes to buy...
