[…] On the other hand IMO the new world main villains will be admirals (at least Sakazuki) and the yonkou (I expect BB to reach Yonkou-status after these 2 years and Kaidou, BigMam and Shanks won't be a threat if BigMam is Lola's mom). I don't count Buggy, Croc, Morgan, Coby or Smoker, because except the latter one Luffy has beaten all of them.
Well i guess kaidou will be an opponent for Luffy, because he went against Shanks which should be a little hint that he isn`t on the "good site".
Smoker will always try to fight Luffy but he will take a role just like Garp was to Gol.D…so sure no arc-villain.
Coby i expect to be the future fleet-admiral(still in a far far away future).
But now with BigMam protecting FI and the ruckus that started recently there, I'm afraid that at least a BigMam commander will come there and find out who is responsible for that ruckus.
t be mentioned in this arc for nothing..i think a commander would be a good guess, because either BigMam is a friend of the SHs(because being Lolas mum) or in my opinion it
s still far to early to beat already a yonkou in the first arc after the timeskip.(they also didnt fight directly a shichibukai(croc) after entering the GL)
So i somehow exclude her to be this arcs main-villain.
With the current power level of each SH, I think nobody there we know right now is a real threat for the crew.
Thats the point…we still can
t judge how strong the crew got over those past two years...so we first need some villains which would be a good reference for us how strong they all are now. For that we definitely need a big caliber as main villain for this arc(even more so when we think about how long we waited for FI). I would prefer a fishman but i wouldnt be surprised when it
s in the end a guy we havent seen much so far, because as we now see it could be someone who likes to stay in the shadows and pulls from there the strings.
That WG-guy DoFla was talking to would be a fitting candidate...a commander like you mentioned i somehow like..well, hard to say but we have to wait a bit more for him to show his face, that iam sure of.
And that thing with Dofla: IMO only his hardcore fans (or haters) expect him now to be the main villain in this arc.
Lol, i would say you can call me a fan of this guy, but iam not seeing him the villain(because of the reasons i mentioned in my previous post):happy:
