So I have a question about this area behind the Gates of Justice. I was under the impression that this area was "the home to gigantic sea kings like those found in the Calm Belt." However, I think a lot of people think that it's "a Calm Belt type area that is home to gigantic sea kings." Do people see the difference? The former means that gigantic sea kings live there, but ships can sail normally. The latter means there's no wind, and a special means of transportation is required. Can anyone clear up this confusion? Depending on which it is, it could drastically change how things proceed in the story.
On another note, we can also speculate on where the SHs are going once they reach the GoJ. According to Nami, they can only go two places. Marine HQ, and Impel Down. But to me, it seems absurd for them to want to go to either place. One is a place where all the elite Marines are stationed, and the other is a high security prison where all the most dangerous criminals are held. Does anyone besides me think that they'll just steal a ship from somewhere and start heading in the opposite direction?
