Sorry if this already exists, I tried searching for it. In this topic you can discuss what you think the next arc might be about/contain. It doesn't have to be serious: if you got a funny idea that's good!
Anyway, I think it would be cool if Blackbeard had to become Shichibukai by beating Luffy. We could have a Usopp/Van Auger sniper battle for Usopp fans, and obviously Luffy Vs Blackbeard, but the Strawhats are a pretty big crew, almost twice the size of Blackbeards, including Franky. It would be interesting to see how they would make this work, maybe Blackbeard has more members who weren't present in Jaya/WG-Shichibukai Meeting. It seems unlikely however_._ Still, it could be a very good arc. Of course, Luffy would win, which would keep the all-animal named Shichibukai roster in tact whilst still having Blackbeard pursue his interest in becoming a Shichibukai. Feel free to add your own comments.
