a lot of people have mixed feelings on these two training together.
i wonder if it's actually a misstep or if Oda just doing the cliche samurai defeating his master thing here.
but, i kind of got the feeling from the way mihawk was shown as being strong compared to a lot of guys we've seen so far but not unstoppable in marineford if it's something else. does anyone think someone else besides mihawk might be zoro's goal in the second half of the series? i could see mihawk being defeated by shiryuu or some new swordsman who's been intentionally flying under the government's radar the way blackbeard did.
maybe the status of world's greatest swordsman might pass to someone else besides mihawk is what i'm saying. if mihawk is training zoro himself, zoro's goal just seems too close to being achieved this far ahead of the finale of one piece.
