The Rocks? Who lost their captain? That threw me off balance.
Someone on the spoiler thread mentioned that it could've been a name instead, like "Roux". Could it be one of those really-hard-to-translate-until-we-get-more-context situations?
doubt it since rock/lock and roux ,at least with the french pronunciation , are nothing alike phonetically
None of Big Mom's backstory implies that she would ever agree to be part of any crew where she isn't the boss.
And surprised that Shanks himself made the decision to go see the Gorosei.
Supposed Plot Hole: In ch 800, Akainu implied that the Gorosei were the puppets of Tenryubito. In this chapter, it is being said that Gorosei are the leaders of tenryubito.
no,in this chapter it's said that they are the leader of the world
basically, the tenryuubito has not "real" power….they don't directly decide anything but they have the power to do and ask for anything they want...
take it as a mom and her spoiler child...she is the one in command, she tooks all the decisions not her 5 years old brat....but if the kid wanna go to the park, they are gonna go there, because she clearly can't say them "no"
Are the "rocks" the pirate crew Linlin and Kaidou once a part of?
nah, in linlin's flashback is stated clear that she directly funded the big mom pirates with streusend
the rocks were probably the dominant force before garp took down their captain, then came the era of roger, shiki and whitebeard, with garp fighting toe to toe with an ascending roger…after the king fell, big mom gathered powr and somewhere between then and now kaidou also slowly got to his seat as a yonkou while gettinf defeated, imprisoned and tortured multiple times in the process.
i suppose the debt kaidou has to linlin is that he was saved one of those times by her.@DynamiteShikoku:
Suddenly got this revelation : what if the 'rocks' will be featured in a new movie?
Oda did the same thing with shiki, he incorporate the char in the manga then use him as a char in the movie.
We already got so much in our plate to be deal with (kaidou, wano, RA, ryokugyu, etc) so introducing an ancient pirate crew to wreck things up might not be feasible. So Oda might introduce the crew in the manga just be used later in the movie.
I hope I'm wrong though cause i would love to see this crew in the manga.
while it's possible, oda already teased a lot of time ago that " a past legend would make his move", and he was talking about the manga, not about a movie.@Ukimix:
Also BM wants to be listen talking to Kaido… hmmmm
two possible explanation..maybe 3
-they know the main part of the foprces are guarding the reverie right now
- they know the marines wont intervene to protect a non WG island
- they really don't care that much about the marines,much like shanks back in the day told that if they wanted to stop him, they just had to try@FelRes:
CP0 isn't secret, but it does feel like something Oda made up because he wanted to keep Cipher Pol relevant somehow. I don't see where it even fits in the greater plot.
It's not hard, the Elder Stars are the top of the Celestial Dragon food chain. Course, they probably get pushed around by the rest of the Celestial Dragons too. I wanna see what the Viz version says though, should help clear up any ambiguity.
cp0 is there probably because the tenryuubito needed some kinf of physical force that was 24h at their disposal and wasn't just stupid fodder guards…the marines usually do their job, they are not always serving them
