I'm glad Orochi isn't another Spandam. While it was satisfying to see a weak guy like him fail, I like the idea of a secondary main villain that can hold his own. Bonus points for not being a pirate or government affiliate.
He may not be a Spandam but he certainly could be a Vander Decken….. He already seems to have a similar female obsession for the courtesan the way VD had tbe obsession for Shiraoshi*
Also, he may have a unique DF same way VD had his aim fruit or whatever... but because he wasn't the main villain during the Fishman Island arc, he was pretty much relegated as a 2nd rate comic relief villain.
I wait to see what he's ultimately about. Hopefully it's not only about getting the woman of his dreams.
