I was just thinking that the best thing about reading One Piece weekly, is being able of making and sharing theories with other fans.

So I caught up on the last 4 chapters from

spoiler (click to show/hide)
Kaidou fight to Pt.1 end -> Intermission -> Pt.2 start

And that was all pretty darn awesome. This is good stuff.



Ok, so the main thing I'm wondering is at the end of the day this is a shounen manga. For Luffy to become the Pirate King he eventually needs to be stronger than everyone. We saw that as he grew in strength and beat the Shichibukai, but now that he's in the New World he got smacked down by Big Mom and at best only tied against her 2nd in command and

spoiler (click to show/hide)
Against Kaidou he couldn't do much damage and got 1-hit KO'd

Now in the shorter amount of time left in the arc/series, I wonder how the hell Luffy is going to power up that dramatically from here. I mean he already has all the various armaments and 4th form was still pretty recent. Another form doesn't feel like it'd give him the power boost he needs to be competitive on the Yonkou scene. Will be interesting what happens in this arc because you've got to assume that he will beat Kaidou in the end and this will be the arc that gets him to Yonkou tier in power-level. If he runs again after Big Mom arc that'd be weird.

Also I wanna say it'll be cool to

Turn the Captain Kidd character into a more developed major character hopefully. I feel like a lot of the worst generation haven't done much besides cameo since the time skip.
And I'm always glad to see more Blackbeard. It's been great watching his character grow from the start. Worthy antagonist rival for endgame. The sword dude now with invisibility is pretty crazy. Gonna be a tough fight for Zoro. Probably his final boss unless it's Mihawk rematch??
Also any theories on who the fish spitter is?


And one thing that sorta bugged me in the last four chapters is what the fuck happened with the Law v tarot card guy fight? He hits Law with a seastone nail which neutralizes Law's powers and then is about to strike on Law and then it cuts away to Kaidou/Luffy and when it cuts back Law has escaped and is on a hill. That was kinda weird, like I would have liked to see how Law made it out. Maybe they ran out of pages.

If he runs again after Big Mom arc that'd be weird.

Awakening most likely. Also remember he lost to Croc three times in the same arc. It didn't come easy. First time they "fought" he got one shotted and had his blood sucked out. Luffy lost against Lucci once in Water 7 before their rematch at Enies Lobby. Luffy barely survived Impel Down. Luffy got his ass dragged by Mochi boy almost their entire fight and he won in the end. Also, I highly doubt Luffy and co. will get One Piece as is. I fully expect there to be another time skip before they set foot on Raftel. Also, more than likely Luffy doesn't even take on Kaido himself. It'll be a multi-man job. I'm betting Law, Kidd, AND Luffy take him on. Maybe even Hawkings too.

Also, I'm expecting Luffy's fleet to come and save the day.

I don't think the Worst Generation have gotten cameos at all. Oda has slowly built them up over time. We didn't know shit about Bege until Whole Cake. We've learned Law's backstory. Wano has Law, Kidd, Hawkings, Apoo, and likely Killer as well. Including Luffy and Zoro that's over half of the Worst Generation in one location. Guarantee we learn about Kidd this arc. Also, Reverie had Jewelry Bonney. Oda seems to be applying a slow burn to the Worst Generation but they in no way seem to be afterthoughts. The Worst Generation characters we've run into so far such as Bege and Law have both played major roles for instance.

Yeah, Laws always been developed and Bege got big development last arc. So hopefully the ones in this arc get the same treatment.

I don't think it's necessary to be the pirate king and also be the strongest. Whitebeard was the strongest and he wasn't pirate king because he didn't care about it. Seems to me there's more to being pirate king than just power.

wasn't whitebeard only the strongest because roger was dead? it doesn't say whitebeard was the strongest in the world when roger was alive. Whitebeard just didn't care for the title of pirate king.

I don't think there's anything out there that says how strong Roger was. They seemed like they treated each other like equals, but that's about it.

Well strongest aside, it would be odd for Luffy to win the game but never be able to beat a Yonkou 1 on 1. So hes gotta have a major power up at some point to get there because clearly hes nowhere near there yet.

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2019-01-10/one-piece-creator-the-end-is-near-but-series-will-be-just-over-100-volumes/.141858

Picked this up on Era.

The main takeaway imo is that Oda says the series will end at just over 100 volumes which apparently with the chapter count means One Piece is DONE in 2-4 years max. Given that these arcs take 2 years at this point, that means the next arc is either the final arc or the 2nd to last arc. If there's 2 arcs left I'd guess it's an Impel Down setup -> final arc kinda thing.

I've pretty much been saying we endgame now, especially with Yonkous. If this arc wraps up Kaido/Big Mom all that is left is Blackbeard (because Shanks will probably be intertwined as an ally in that) and the World Government/Revolutionary Army, but there could easily be a big arc about finding one piece involving vs. Blackbeard vs. Government w/Shanks & Dragon all in one arc.

Anyhow while I respect your dreams, the whole idea that OP will go on and on after they find One Piece is not happening in this manga. Maybe Oda will do a sequel manga down the line with that, but given the time table it's pretty clear imo that it's the race to One Piece vs. Blackbeard and when that's over the manga is done. Which is great. Doesn't need to overstay it's welcome.

It's been obvious for a while now that it's been setting up end game. Those who are blind haven't been able to see it.

And yeah, this cuts out the theory of another war after the crew finds One Piece. Maybe the arc where they find One Piece isn't that long? They've been teasing of a war one they find One Piece for the longest and I don't believe Oda would let it happen off screen.

Minimum estimates. Let's be conservative with numers here. He says a little over 100 volumes, but Wano could easily enter 100 chapters. We are at volume 90. That's 100 chapters, which is 10 volumes. Wano will likely end around volume 99 or 100. This leaves it to Elbaf and the final island Raftel, which should be 50-100 chapters. That's 109-110 volumes. If he does the war after finding piece that's an additional 100 chapters. 120 volumes. That does speak of what he said,"just a little after 100". There's no way the story ends with under 110 chapters given the plot.

Plot entanglements we have left to resolve:

-Mariejois and the man that sits on the throne
- Fishman island needs to be destroyed
- Usopp needs to go to Elbaf
- Luffy needs to meet Shanks
- Sanji needs to find All Blue
- Nami needs to make her World Map
- Chopper has to cure an incurable disease
- the crew has to find One Piece
- Luffy has to destroy the old world
- We still need find Vegapunk
- We need to learn about the origin of D and the void century
- We need to learn about devil fruits and where they come from

There's no way this ends under 110-115 volumes much less 100 chapters. Oda is trolling.

Caught up on the last month of chapters. Alright stuff, but this week's was cool.

Sanji upgrade yessss

The only thing I didn't like is the bs of one captain of Kaido sinking and almost killing Big Mom's entire ship and crew. Come on, if it was that easy to take out a Yonkou they'd all be dead already. And now going with the Amnesia subplot because of it, idk how I feel about this part of the arc.

Otherwise rest is great as always. I like the bit about how Traffy is a terrible realistic captain vs Luffy haha

I wonder if Oda-sama take note of criticism and makes adjustments.

Cuz a whole bunch of interesting ninjas came outta fucking nowhere and there was no lengthy introduction for them.

Which seems like an improvement over some of the shit that went on in Dressrosa.

Good chapter even if it's mostly setup. End reminds me of the part where Luffy was almost executed.

Plus I'm convinced that any pages in One Piece with Zoro in them are always good. It'd be a challenge to find bad zoro pages. His personality is just the best.
