In a recent SBS Oda mentioned that something big went down with the Marines and that he is excited to draw it
That sounds PAST TENSE. Like it already happened and not like the strawhats are going somewhere marine related soon.
Like in the inbetween arcs we see some of the world changes and one of those is the effects of this BIG thing THAT WENT DOWN (again past tense)
–- Update From New Post Merge ---
This is a potential sbs question, but who took care of the lawn and mikan trees on the sunny during the 2 years? Probably Shaky herself, or some of the FFRiders.
Also, the lack of medical supplies, cola and food were both adressed by Chopper (Lacking blood), Usopp (getting barrels) and Sanji (Getting a lot of food).
Also, the furnitures that Nami and Robin bought 2 years ago, I guess that those were either stolen or recovered by the FFRiders.
I'm sure Kuma has a watering can feature he had installed before being completely tooken over since he knew this situation would come up.
Chopper really did make a mistake I think in that front. I mean you have two crew members who have unique blood form the rest of the crew and you don't have spare blood of theirs or that kind on hand. Of course then we get into FREEZING and STORING problems. When was Cola and food adressed? Didn't Sanji buy a ton of food before leaving shabondy and also didn't Usopp stock up on cola and franky as well before leaving? Or are you talking about upon returning from two years? Cause I would imagine that the fishman riders or hatchi might see the idea of eating that food as not a bad idea. I mean the strawhats were going to be gone for 2 years. Most food woudl go bad. And if they are protecting the ship, tehy would need to be near it, thus probably ate that food and drank that cola.
No comment on furniture, don't recall and furniture they bought. Guess I have ot go back and look at that.
