It’s been a while since I posted one of these, and it’s been a few months since Wanos conclusion, but the holiday season chapter drought is upon us so what the heck, why not bring it back I thought.
That is to say: After more than four years and almost 150 chapters the Wano arc has finally concluded, as well as the larger “Big Mom/Kaidou” saga, spanning plotlines as far back as Fishman Island and Punk Hazard. And while we have “general Wano“ discussion for Macro arc takes, I thought it’d be interesting to have threads dedicated wholly to particular plotthreads.
In this case, with Orochi and the effectiveness of him as a character getting his own recent thread, I thought it fitting to have a dedicated discussion of who ultimately was the biggest baddest endgame obstacle of this entire saga – or at the very least from Punk Hazard through Wano – namely Kaidou himself. Introduced falling from the sky in an attempt to kill himself and last seen getting punched into a volcano as he reminisced about wanting to overthrow aristocratic power structures theres’ a lot to talk about with the guy, from his ties to Orochi to his history with Yamato.
And so, whether or not you believe him to be for really real gone for good or not, what did you make of his tenure as a Saga Villain? How did you feel he stacked up? Did you find his motives/goals/personality compelling? What about the fight itself? As said, theres a lot to discuss!
