    Nope seems first spoiler is out

    It's been used quite a few times in the manga, most recently in chapter 606.
    Oda does use the term "怪物三人組 (Monster Trio)" in the very manga itself."

    Next chapter is most likely the last in the volume, so I'm expecting a big twist in it.

    What do you think will happen?
    I'm thinking Hiyori's capture will be revealed.

    Also, do anyone think the end of Act 3 is near?

    (I've not seen any spoilers yet, but if you have, please avoid any hints here)
    No, I'm not back. I never left. It's just that it has been a long time since I had something to say.

    I am not talking about Izo from end of chapter

    But the guy talking to Marco at the shop, where we don't see anything besides a Kimono resembling the one from Crocus cover.

    Everything is possible, but, narratively speaking, I find it unlikely to be the guy Crocus was talking about because it would be a big "Who the eff are you?" moment for the readers when a totally unknown character appears as the chavalry in battle.

    We are more likely to meet that guy casually, as a seemly random character, before finding out who he is. Think of how Raylegh was first mentioned as some random old shipcoater, then revealed as very strong in a casual way, then OMG HE'S THE PIRATE KING'S FIST MATE and HE'S THE GUY FROM BUGGY'S FLASHBACK.

    That nuance is lost when a total random guy just jumps into battle out of nowhere.

    So, if that person is not Izo, it's more likely to be someone else we've seen before, or there's no reason to hide his/her face.
    No, I'm not back. I never left. It's just that it has been a long time since I had something to say.

    If he wouldn't have a total Wano style clothing I would agree but I always expected him to appear at Wano.

    On top of that Crocus has ties to Oden as well and I don't Neko only brought Izo with him as Marco wasn't originally planned to be there

    Each act seems to be structured as its own mini-story, with beginning, rising action, climax, and all that.

    We're 26 chapters in into Act 3. At that point in Act 2, we were just starting the post-climax wrap up. Meanwhile the last few chapters have been mostly introducing new players into the mix with the Tobi Roppo, Marco, Yamato, etc, and there's still more to come like that shadow that was following Jinbe and Robin and all the other Numbers. In Act 2 all important characters of the arc were already introduced by 936, when Gyukimaru first appeared (technically Kawamatsu wasn't introduced until later, but 'mystery prisoner' was very well-established). That was around a third of the way in.

    So I think it's very possible Act 3 isn't halfway done yet.

    I think this act will be a little different. I think it's setting up the battle and will end just before the samurai attack begins. But there will be a twist that makes everything more dire for the heroes. Then act 4 will be all action, with the stakes higher than we expected.

    I think the act end will happen pretty soon. If not now, within the next volume.

    So another monday spoiler provider is borned. Maybe it's the occasion to move toward being unspoiled...

    For the big reveal I don't expect we see Hiyori yet, we will probably continue the Yamato plot thread. Oda needs to conclude some of the threads he has opened before opening new ones

    It is very simple to avoid spoilers. Mute it on social media or just don't go into the threads on forums. When I don't want to see spoilers for a certain week, I mute mutuals and avoid threads. I don't get why people complain when it's more about their discipline than anything. You can literally control what you see when it comes to that online

    I seen a celebration last week due to a spoiler provider changing to some extent. If you can control what you see, why is a spoiler provider even a factor to you? Unless you lack discipline to be in the spoiler threads and have to be in the know, why would that even concern you?

    I don't complain about spoiler but about spoiler on monday.
    And thank you, but I know how to avoid spoilers without being told

    You brought up the topic of spoilers and I remembered the celebration from last week. My post isn't directed at you

    The celebration was for the same reason. Nobody complained about being spoiled but because of the date of the spoiler and how it affects the different threads

    On this forum, reddit and Twitter, people moan about spoilers. You can't say that your post has the same sentiment and then say they don't complain about spoilers because they've done it for years.

    If you're saying that the inconvenience of attention to the spoiler thread disrupts other threads, then I disagree.

    I've chosen to not read spoilers this week and i'm in other threads, forums, platforms etc. If someone wants to be in a thread, they will.

    your post came just after mine so I understand it as an answer to my post. Then it was not about me but about the posts said earlier in this thread and now it is about reddit and twitter.
    If your post is talking about those maybe it would have been helpful to explain that context so that other people can understand what you mean

    And once again I'm not speaking about the spoiler in general but the spoiler thread being open on monday. One day after the official thread has been open. It's the timing which disrupts the chapters discussion threads. The other threads are indeed not impacted much, I should have been more specific

    I'm expecting Kuzan to also feature in this arc in some capacity. With two Yonko present and the weight of the future resting on the outcome of the upcoming battle, it would be surprising if Kuzan is not present during these events. I feel that the brand of “justice” Kuzan seeks would very much find some clarity in the events about to transpire. With Sakazuki having decided to not involve the Marines with Wano Kuni, it makes it even more necessary for Kuzan to be present at Wano Kuni and to assist in the liberation of its people. Additionally, Wano Kuni is deeply tied to the history of the Ancient Civilisation and presumably with the Will of D and so to is Kuzan through his history with Jaguar and Robin. I find it hard to ignore that Kuzan being present during this arc would very much be relevant to him - Kuzan may be affiliated in some form with Blackbeard but more than likely he is operating as an independent entity.

    It's not a "now" thing that can't be found in my first post. I clearly stated
    I mute mutuals and avoid threads
    There is no muting of "mutuals" on forums. That is a Twitter thing. Throughout my whole statement, I make it clear that i'm referring to more than just forums. Your post didn't share the same sentiment as those who want the spoiler providing to go. That sentiment is what my post is directed at. If you read your initial post, you can clearly see that there is no "I want spoilers gone". I even told you why it wasn't directed at you and what specifically sparked my post.

    What you clarified and added later does apply tho.

    The fact that it is a Monday after no chapter and I still haven't entered the spoiler thread, shows that those who want to be in a chapter thread and not a spoiler thread can do so. The spoiler thread isn't an essential thread. The way you speak of it is as if it's this place that people are pressured to be in, so they forget the chapter thread.

    Queen's dance was fairly appreciated last week on Twitter. I only liked the one with the Gangnam style mix

    Deicide, have noticed you’ve been predicting that in some of your posts. How do you think she would have been captured? Orochi knows she’s alive but has been dead silent about it since then... Thinking if this materializes, Denjiro will blow his cover right there and then.

    Looking forward to Momo turning to a dragon for everyone to see.

    Kaido will surely be amused.
