It doesn't help zoro that all he cares about is swordmanship. Like even fukin Akainu has another hobby besides lava fisting pirates, he likes gardening, take away zoro's swordmanship and you got nothing. I find it ironic how people complain about germa because they are the ones that train all day and care about strength and are boring, when zoro is just like that!
And he is also the most villain like straw hat, and not the fun type like buggy or CC, more like akainu or vergo.
And growing more heads and arms and swords? that is out of the tough guy excuse, I didn't even see robin do that and she actually has a fruit that could do that.
I don't know who to quote for this big Zoro thing but I really want to chime in. The Vinsmoke comparison isn't apt because Germa possesses absolutely no moral code and actively abuses other people in horrific ways.
I'm actually someone who entered the timeskip loving Sanji and hating Zoro, but now if anything those feelings have kind of switched (although I don't hate Sanji, I just think Oda handles his character very poorly). I may be in the minority of those who like Zoro more after the timeskip, actually. It's unfair to say that all Zoro cares about is swordsmanship imo because he also genuinely cares about the strength of the crew and he obviously cares very deeply for Luffy. I might add that these aren't just empty words either - the things that he's done and said in critical moments speak for themselves. I especially like that Zoro puts aside his pride to train with Mihawk, and the fact that's all but wiped the floor with his enemies in the New World show that he took that training very seriously.
The shut eye thing intrigues me a lot. I'm not sure if anyone else brought it up, but this is potentially the most hyped powerup that we've had in the series imo. Is his eye missing or not? If not, why does he keep it closed? The common theory is that he simply refuses to open it out of shame, but that does suggest that there will be a time where he may have to open it… And what happens when he does? It may be sort of shallow battle manga stuff, but I think that particular aesthetic element really draws me to the character because there's still an air of mystery as to what he can actually accomplish. Literally even if nothing happens with his eye, I'll still love that Oda added that to his character.
I think swords are just about the lamest weapon out of all the wacky shit we've seen in One Piece but I really do look forward to a Zoro fight that really pushes him. I'll probably also add that his Mr 1 fight is probably my favorite fight in the series because it's paced expertly, doesn't overstay its welcome, and hits a real emotional high. I would like to see some Zoro characterization as well, but I don't think it's necessary.
My two cents on the guy. Of all the Straw Hats that got kinda screwed over post timeskip, I think he was spared amicably.
