Kaido and desire to die

This is merely speculation as we don’t know much about Kaido, However, I am seeing a trend in the Yonko.
As Big mom seems to display signs of dissociative identity disorder, Kaido seems to be a deeply depressed character. In Kaido we are given a character that has reached almost the pinnacle of his territory. And yet, something more seems to be at work. When we see Kaido he is either extremely angry or very depressed.He has also tried to kill himself multiple times. However, this does not seem to be a hobby, more like a cry of pain.
From what we know of Kaido he is a beast wanting to die, as such, we must wonder what has transpired in his life for this to happen.
Yes, he has been captured and tortured, but he does not seem to recover from these losses well. He seems to carry the burden of this loss almost like a chain around his neck.
In fact, he has become so disdained by life that all he wants is death, to the point of looking for new ways to die.
Yet, what if Kaido is the representation of suicide in One Piece? What if Kaido like Big Mom has a bigger role to play in Oda’s Story. That role is to represent the mental health aspect of characters that we don’t pay attention to.
He may be a symbol of what so few people pay attention to and don’t understand, that being suicide. In this sense, Big Mom and Kaido seem to represent two coinciding pains of life mental illness and suicide.
They may represent the over exaggerating people see in their minds. They could, however, be Oda’s tools to make people pay attention to life struggles few see.
This is merely speculation but is quite possible.

WHERE’S MARCO? NEKOMAMUSHI’S TRIALS BEFORE WANO

We aren’t going to Wano just yet, not before this.

This theory concerns where we go after we leave WCI. Smart money would be directly to Wano, but these things are rarely ever that simple. And why I believe we won’t be able to head directly to Wano are for a couple reasons.

However before I start, let me just say, I don’t expect anything to happen with this plotline until next year. I am sure that once WCI officially concludes, Oda will spend the appropriate amount of time catching us up on the current state of affairs with Momonosuke on Zou, and the other Strawhats who went ahead to Wano. Luffy and Co. will probably take a backseat for awhile. There is also Reverie to consider.

That said, let’s get back to this field trip that Nekomamushi is on. It seems far too good to be true. Are we expected to believe that Nekomamushi will just show up on Wano with Marco and the others at the last second to turn the tide of the battle for us? It’s that simple to defeat a Yonko? Nah.

From what we know of the Whitebeard Pirates, they have been dormant and inactive ever since the Payback War. Oda clearly understands that we are outmatched yet he has given us the easiest way out for the audience to accept. The Whitebeard Pirates, whose abilities we know and are familiar with, will lend us their strength, just because we know some old buddies of theirs. This strikes me as far too easy as without a doubt the likes of Marco could almost 1v1 a Calamity without much help.

In my opinion, this whole “Get the Whitebeards” to help is a Red Herring by Oda, and we won’t actually end up with the Whitebeard Pirates in the end. This search will give an ally though, but one I think we aren’t supposed to expect. It all starts with who I believe Nekomamushi will run into on his search.

It’s far too convenient for me at least that we already have someone hunting to exterminate said remaining Whitebeard Pirates and their allies. And somehow, Nekomamushi will just get to them first without running into him. Such is the way Shonens work. You need an antagonist to obstruct your protagonists. I am expecting Nekomamushi to run into and LOSE to Edward Weevil.

For one of two reasons, his raw, physical strength has already been hyped to be comparable to Whitebeard in his youth. And a fight with Luffy was foreshadowed by Oda in the brief moment we were introduced to him. And two, Nekomamushi has just lost an arm and that may play a role in him losing. This I think will play a role in the rest of our alliance losing contact with Nekomamushi. Then someone has to investigate since we are dependent on getting the WB Pirates as allies. Since the others have already made it to Wano, assuming of course, and Inuarashi is with Momo on Zou (I have ideas on this as well), Luffy and the others may be asked to track down Nekomamushi and find out what happened to him.

Which puts us on a collision course with Weevil.

Now you know just as well as I do, that Weevil seems off. Everything about his existence and his claims seems false. For me it is obvious that there is someone behind the creation that is Edward Weevil, probably unbeknownst to him cause he’s so stupid. So in this case, who is responsible for falsifying a fake WB and hunting former WB Pirates? Who has such little respect for WB’s legacy and stands to benefit from this extermination? Well the answer is clear.

He is easily the number one suspect behind a nefarious plot to exterminate the WBs. It helps him as well because finding Marco means more powerful abilities at his grasp. He’s on an ability hunt. We know this. But I know what you are thinking. How would BB even have the capability of making someone look like the son of Whitebeard? The answer is, he doesn’t. I believe Blackbeard is working with someone else. That someone is..

Yes this is nothing new, but I will get to why Moria is involved here. These three escaped Thriller Bark together using Absalom’s invisibility. The key to all of this however is Hogback. Recall what Hogback said about Blackbeard in Ch 486. He relayed the information about BB replacing Crocodile and was greatly impressed by the feats he displayed. It seems that Oda was foreshadowing this alliance between BB and Moria all the way back then. I believe Hogback is responsible for Edward Weevil’s creation and they are currently working under BB.

Obviously Moria is only interested in biding his time until he believes he is powerful enough to challenge for Pirate King. But that is besides the point. I think after escaping Marineford, Hogback tracked down BB and the three have made a deal. Under BB, Hogback’s creations ahve gotten more powerful and finding the truth behind Weevil I believe will be the focus of this short diversion I am predicting. Which will lead us to Moria. But to what end?

I BELIEVE MORIA AND HIS NEW FORCES ARE THE FINAL ALLIES WE WILL GAIN BEFORE FIGHTING KAIDOU.

Now I know that seems far-fetched. Moria hates Luffy and Luffy hates him. However, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. We know Moria has been to Wano before. We know it was the place for his defeat against Kaido. Basically, Moria hates Kaido more than anyone else in the world. Luffy included. Even though I’m not sure how it would work out, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Edward Weevil looks very similar to a zombie and that doesn’t lead us to one of Kaido’s former enemies.

After all this is the Vs Four Emperors arc. It would be foolish to not at least get a glimpse into the machine of BB’s forces post timeskip before we have the final showdown of that arc. So we get a little of BM. We get a little of BB and then we get Kaido at the end. What do you guys think?

*Theory by TheConqueror

After SBS Volume 83 this looks so much different

Oda just stated in the new SBS Volume 83: “Why do Doflamingo and Violet call each other “Doffy” and “Viola”? Actually there is a profound setting about it, but I’m afraid I can’t tell you. Considering ONE PIECE is Shonen manga, I’d like to hide it since the reason is for adult audience. Dressrosa is a nation of passion, indeed!!”

Now this looks so different…

Oda’s work schedule is absolutely insane!!

Here’s what a typical day in the life of Eiichiro Oda looks like as revealed in a recent magazine article:

● Wake up at 5 a.m., start working
● Continue working through the day
● Go to bed at 2 a.m.

His only breaks are for eating, sleeping, and going to the bathroom…

However, he doesn’t exactly do the same thing every day, but he has a schedule of sorts for that as well:

● Monday-Wednesday: Layout planning and character dialogue
● Thursday-Saturday: Drawing and inking
● Sunday: Coloring and other tasks

Thank you so much Oda sensei for dedicating your precious life to share with us this extraordinary series and take care of yourself!

DRACULE MIHAWK WAS A FORMER NOBLE?

DRACULE MIHAWK A FORMER NOBLE? (NOT NECESSARILY A CELESTIAL DRAGON)

Dracule Mihawk is easily the most mysterious warlord of the original seven. We know a few things about him, such as:

– He had daily duels with Shanks
– He trained Zoro in the usage of armament haki (observation too probably)
– His bounty is unknown
– He lives on a deserted island, within a castle (with Perona now)
– He’s known as “The Greatest Swordsman in the World”
– Dracule is based off “Dracula” (See Vlad III Dracula, who was prince of Wallachia )

Some of these can relate to the possibility that Mihawk was a former Noble (please keep in mind not all Nobles are Celestial Dragons).

Mihawk’s unknown bounty could possibly mean that he had no bounty to begin with kinda like when Blackbeard became a warlord. Mihawk could have been bored with being a Noble so he decided to venture out on the seas. The fact that he lives in a castle could be kinda like an “old habit” sorta thing and enjoys drinking wine and sitting back. He is also very stoic and prefers to do things on his own (probably believes working with others is a sign of weakness or he just prefers to keep to himself). (His ship is also a one-seater! But with green flames on the candles of his ship. Green symbolizes fertility and money, among other things. So he probably lived in an area with a lot of greenery as well.)
His character design looks similar to that of Athos of the Three Musketeers who hid is identity as a Count. Athos would also drown his secret sorrows in alcohol akin to how Mihawk would drink alone in his castle. Perhaps this means he didn’t like his life as a Noble or had a rough childhood. What if his parents thought him as useless for some reason or abandoned him because of his infamous eyes? (Red in the manga, yellow in the anime) Then Mihawk went out to sea to prove that he can make something of himself and eventually became the greatest swordsman in the world?

Athos apparently quit being a warrior which might also mean the possibility that Mihawk will eventually resign from the warlords.

Theory by PirateKing Monkey D Luffy

Oda placed a little detail almost no one noticed

D: I have a question for Odacchi. In “The White City”, chapter 762 of volume 76, during the scene where Law stabs Cora-san, I found Crocodile printed on the paper Cora-san was reading.

So what was that article about?          P.N. Yamamoto・Sugiyama・Hori

O: Yes. I’m quite impressed you found this one~. As you’ve pointed out, if you look really closely, you can find Crocodile there.

This was from the time when Law was 10 and Doflamingo was 25; 16 years ago from now. Crocodile was 30 at the time.

Similar to Luffy, back when he was young, Crocodile’s name spread across the seas with incredible momentum, but soon after he was admitted into the Shichibukai in his mid-20’s, he tried to fight Whitebeard and was completely and utterly crushed by him.

Though he seemingly calmed down at this point, his eyes became set on the kingdom of Alabasta, and it happened to be precisely during this time period that he was being featured in the papers as a hero who hunted down pirates. In other words, that was an article reporting the acts of heroism by Crocodile at the time!

Sabo’s Dream

Sabo’s dream involves traveling around the world as a pirate. This is in order to write a book containing the story of everything he would see and every place he would visit during his journey. One of the reasons behind all this could be the “segregation” that envelopes so much of the Goa Kingdom, a thing that could easily stir a freedom-loving spirit like Sabo’s to ask himself what the world was really like outside the walls of High Town, and outside the island itself. However, he was ready to cast aside his dream for the sake of his loved ones. Sabo was loyal to his friends and, in this case his two “brothers”, to the point that he would give in to the demands of his father, becoming miserable and “alone” in order to save both Luffy and Ace. After reawakening his memories, Sabo did not leave the Revolutionary Army to resume his dream as a free-sailing pirate, as he seems to remain convicted to the Army’s causes.

CAESAR CLOWN – THE BUGGY OF THE NEW WORLD

As the title suggests we will talk about Caesar Clown and Buggy the Clown and how actually Caesar’s actions and interactions reminds me of pre-timeskip Buggy.

1.To start with the obvious they both have Clown in their name :D

2.Both of them were living in the shadow of someone great (Roger for Buggy and Vegapunk for Caesar)​

3.Buggy was able to capture Luffy and almost executed him because Luffy was not taking him serious and he was fooling around. (chapter 97-98)
The same thing happened when Luffy first fought Caesar. Caesar caught him off guard and was able to defeat Luffy. (chapter 671-672)

4.Just before getting executed by Buggy, Luffy was saved by Dragon (chapter 99)
When Luffy was tied with prism stone and Smiley was coming in Punk Hazard he was saved by Law good planning, otherwise he was dead (chapter 677)​

5.Buggy helped Luffy unwillingly during Impel Down because it was his only way of surviving the wrath of the guards. (whole Impel Down run)
Caesar helped Luffy unwillingly during Dressrosa because it was his only way of survival and hoping that way to avoid the wrath of Doffy/Kaido and Big Mom. (the whole Dressrosa arc + Whole cake island)

6.Both Buggy and Caesar have/had armies following them under false pretense or wrong impression for them.
Buggy is seen as a strong pirate who once was travelling with Roger (the prisoners from Impel Down)
Caesar is seen as a savior (for all the people in Punk Hazard)​

7.Both have very similar gag moments and reactions with Luffy, where Luffy is clearly disrespecting them with the nicknames that he is giving them. (too many to mention :D)

There some more that I can think of but they are far fetched so I will stop here for now :p

If we follow that speculation that there are connection in the events and look towards the situation in the wedding at the moment can we draw some conclusions of what can be expected?
Lets just assume for a second that we can and have fun speculating about it :D

So following the “trend” should we expect that Caesar will save Luffy and fly away with him?
How can that happen?
Well I can speculate that if the Tematebako box explodes in the base of the castle there will be huge commotion happening similar to the one in the end of Marine Fort arc. In that commotion Caesar may fly in, take Luffy and fly away. Having now Nami and the rest left in Capone’s body they will not leave Caesar alone if he doesnt go back for Luffy and Sanji.
Knowing how good Nami is at stealing, may be she will steal Caesar heart and force him to go back. It will be a good gag moment as well since Caesar has been bossed around by everybody and he is getting sick of it but he has no choice :D
This will be similar to how Buggy saved Luffy in the end of Marineford.

So that is it for now guys, lets see what you think.
